hidden gems?

Any games you guys play which aren't particularly top of the listings? any 'hidden gems' you've downloaded in the past and cant put down? games the rest of us might not be too familiar with?

i know there's a lot of crap out there, but i'm sure we can find the odd jewel.

personally, i love 'BBQ Pro' and 'Pole Position Remix'

any more?

These are well known, but i've been playing:

The Creeps!
Archibald's Adventure
Fastlane Street Racing
Blue Defense!

The above are games i've picked up and find pretty hard to put down!

You might want to check out this thread: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...?t=4139&page=8 To answer your question, though, I'm quite partial to Sneezies. Also, while probably a little more well known, I love Hydro Tilt. This is probably one of the best games in terms of accelerometer control.

Right of Way (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=290590839&mt=8): A solid version of the card game classic Mille Bornes. Fun and addicting game.

Jigsawed Jigsaw Puzzle (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=293124364&mt=8): An almost perfect computer version of traditionally jigsaw puzzles. It's hard to come up with an idea not implemented in this game.

Words: This completely overseen word game may not be the most original one, but it is one of the very few non-English word games in the store. There are versions in English (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=296863559&mt=8), German (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=296714582&mt=8), French (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297072110&mt=8), Spanish (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297063351&mt=8) and Italian (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=303037849&mt=8).

Definitely check my thread. In any case, Payb-er, Imprisoned, is my pick.

One I never hear mentioned that I've really enjoyed is 'Space Monkey'. I think it's pretty clever and quite enjoyable.
