best values for money on the app store?

What are the best deals inthe app store? I would say battle for wesnoth (300+hours of gameplay for 5 bucks) space miner(best game on app store for only 2 bucks) jet car stunts (great game only 2 bucks) doodle jump(have logged so many hours for less than the price of coffee) GTA CTW( the clones on the DS and PSP go for 3-4 times the price) and Touchgrind(so much fun for only 5 dollars). What do you guys think?

If you have friends to play with, definitely BattleBlasters. Its like Soul Calibur with lasers.

GTA, considering the Nintendo version originally went for $60.

I doubt that somehow, i picked up a copy for like 20 imported right after it came out :-\ Although, its obviously still cheap on appstore, I havn't seen anyone mention whether the difficulty had been rebalanced from the ds version as some of the later missions definitely needed the precision gained from using actual buttons.

edit: Space Miner, buy buy buy

Battle for Wesnoth!

For puzzles, Mondrian and Angry Birds are great values.

I'd also say that at $1, 2360: Battle of Cydonia is a pretty fantastic value.

warfare inc. is only $1 and has pretty much an unlimited amount of maps when you consider that it has a mission creator and you can download other peoples created maps, and the game plays pretty good as well
