GTA - overshadowed games

i want to make a list of the great games that have arrived in the past few days/weeks that are being overshadowed by grand theft auto. this thread is for me and everyone who doesnt have GTA as well as everyone who has been too busy with GTA to focus on other apps. i want to ensure that all of the devs (mostly indie) who make these wonderful games are getting the appreciation the deserve without feeling overwhelmed by the eclipse GTA has cast over the app store

so i will start us off.

the horrible vikings
battle blasters
doodle bomb
danger cats
are you alright?
sword and poker
bird strike
infinity project


if you have any more, please share. i as well as many others would like to know

Most of these came out well before GTA.

The OP said those released days/weeks before. Contribute or get lost. Thanks.

Dawn of the Dead. It's an alright game, and a lot more fun once you get used to the controls. And it just so happened to come out RIGHT after GTA.

Also, games from the past now rendered obsolete by GTA's release:

Payback
Car Jack Streets
Gangstar (somewhat, it's still the only behind the back camera game, but it's missing the content and awesomeness of GTA from what I've heard).

I don't think anyone really wants to be reminded of those

Oh, lol, on the contrary I just installed the lite versions of both Gangstar and Payback that I had on my iTunes, and was about to put CJS on there tomorrow. Just wanted to play a good game of that genre until I can get GTA.
