As the title suggests, what are your favorite underdogs?
My favorite is Shotgun Santa, which is actually completely brainless (no pun intended)!
Theseus too.

Hey, if no one actually discusses them, then they're fair game for this post.

Dynamate!!!!

It just dropped in price to a mere $.99, I find it to be one of the most polished, responsive and enjoyable games on the Appstore currently. If you check the game out leave a reply here and let me know if I'm right. The dev is active on TA sometimes as well, he seems genuinely interested in feedback and improving Dynamate, however I couldn't find anything that this needs except more exposure.

Here's the thread on the game and here's my impressions of the game.

It's a great game, similar to Sudoku, but I personally can't stand playing Sudoku and love Jabeh.

Shinro is also pretty much the same game as Jabeh, but Jabeh is much better in almost every aspect.

I agree, both of those are also fantastic games. Alphabetic had a pretty solid thread, but it has been ignored this past week or two. Ivory Tiles has been discussed briefly in the last week since it's sequel came out, but it's also a game that seems to be ignored by many. I'd recommend both of these without a doubt.

I still think crossbones is a hidden gem. The only downside is no one is on multiplayer.
