For originality, style, and popularity ... for being a game by a true independent that has stayed in the Top 100 Apps since being introduced in February... and for it's awesome soundtrack ()....

Zombieville USA by Mika Mobile.

(Full disclosure: I did the music, hence the seemingly unwarranted praise.)

But I am being serious. I know the people at Mika Mobile feel that OMG Pirates! is a better game, and it probably is. Perhaps it will be my pick for Game of the Year 2010. But for a real breakthrough indie ame that made it's mark all year, Zombieville is hard to beat.

This is a very good year in quality for the AppStore..The games that really impressed me are Sway,Zen Bound,Real Racing,,Peggle,Rolando 2,Spider:SOBM and more recently OMG!Pirates and Labyrinth 2.
If I have to choose one is Rolando 2 because it's a huge step forward the first,it have great graphic , an excellent soundtrack,and the design of most levels is great.

I like Soosiz and now Hoggy quite a bit.
Soosiz I can just pick up and play any time - similar to how I felt about Super Mario Brothers on the NES and arcade.
