Is it just me...

Is it just me...

...Or do iPhone/iTouch apps really suck as of late?
I'm rather frugal, but I'm a hound for high-end apps and am constantly looking for some great games to play, but it seems that the ones being released for the past couple of months haven't been up to par. Am I just picky or has the quality decreased?
If there have been any superb games made in the past few months, please do share. :)
Tilt to Live is a no from me. I know it will probably be the most common one suggested, but I can't make myself play it. Maybe I'm a sucker for graphics or just looking for something that will last a long time. :P
Opinions and suggestions are all welcome.

Ace Combat

Assassin's Creed (1, 2, and Multi)

Pool Pro Online

Ravensword (Big fan of long-term RPGs)

Blimp- Came out a while ago but is a solid action platformer

No problem!

Also, if you like music games, Six-String looks really good and polished. I haven't played it myself yet but have seen gameplay videos of it.

and I think that the quality hasn't decreased it's just that you played too many good games which you eventually got bored of and when you look at games you compare them to the games you have

Beta Tested: iBetatest+Running with Scissors, iBlast Moki, IMO, 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2011, Zenonia 2, Touch the Beat Beta Testing: Pentagon Defense
