Showoff Games

So what games/apps would you guys use to "show off" the capabilities of your ipod touch or iphone?

A few id choose are:

Space Ninja- Tilt control is great, and not sloppy like other tilt control games. Really impressive handling.

Although its not a game, Koi Pond. People get a kick outta that because the water and fish effects are just so dead on.

Some other games that are cool to show to people that specifically utilize the ipod touch/iphones capabilities are Up There and Scoops, both wonderfully using the tilt control.

What about you guys? What games do you like to share with your family and friends on your device?

Most of my friends enjoy when I show them/let them play my racing games or high quality games like Hero of Sparta and Brothers in Arms.

For my friends that are girls... they tend to appreciate games like Alphabetic, Up There, Snail Mail, etc. rather than violent games like BIA and HOS, lol. :P

[Edit] My newest show off game is Blue Attack! It's such an amazing game

Racing games work well for me, particularly Crash Kart. The accelerometer just works perfectly with games such as that

Kroll is always good to show off and let people try especially for first timers

It's got a lot of graphical richness and isn't to much to handle or convey the basic controls.

Granted there are better games on miphone but kroll is my go to show off app

Still Labyrinth!
It just sounds, looks and feels real. Timeless and amazing.

And Hero of Sparta does a perfect job in impressing

And to add two personal favorites who are great for getting others addicted:
Edge (already proved it...people borrowing my iPhone for too long)
Blue Attack! (don't wanna show it to these people, because then I need a new phone for myself)
