Daily Durables - games you play regularly since you got them?

What are your enduring games?

Hi,

I couldn't find a thread on this so hence a new one (similar to the desert island thread)

I'm taking a look at my 9 page full iPotch and wondering what to delete when a new game or app arrives.

I hate to delete the paid ones but its coming to where some of them don't pull their 'weight'.

It got me thinking what are games I continue to play ever since I got them?

What endures or has regular play frequency?

True replayability based on numbers.

Of course this changes over time when a new game is on board. I get obsessed then it fades.

Note to devs: a new app idea: create an app that measures the number of times an app is opened or used.

Anyway here's some of my list:

What's new/hot:
  • Fantastic Contraption
  • Free Smiles
  • Combination
  • Drop7

Here are my true Daily Durables or Working Weeklies

Daily or at least once a week (heck, I may not even 'love' them but for some reason I found I keep playing them )
  • IQ Boost
  • MetaSquares
  • Gem Spinners
  • Trism
  • Deep Green
  • Kraut
  • Blocked
  • Vector Ball
  • Pipes
  • The Creeps!

There is a middle range where I play them on occasion like once a fortnight or more frequently, but too many to list.

just for fun, here are...

Dying carcass types where I don't play as much as I'd like:
  • Pinch n' Pop
  • Antimatter
  • ScribBall
  • AlienMangle
  • Shaky Summit
  • Hidden Expedition
  • Enigmo
  • DizzyBee
  • Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab
  • SpiN
  • Mondo Solitaire
  • Topple
  • Burning Monkey Casino

Of course, I don't want to play daily on a handful of levels
For me, this game is exceptionally good!
