Best Games for the iPhone/iPotch

This thread is meant to prevent the many question threads that pop up. Look here for the best games by opinion according to genres. Sorry, I don't really know how to get the links.

My Recommendations
Action
Brothers in Arms (clunky controls mar a great game)
Space Deadbeef (excellent sidescroller ship game)
Payback (a little overhyped)
ExZeus

Tower Defense
geoDefense (Geometry Wars+TD=Cheap greatness)
7 Cities

Strategy
War Incorporated
Galcon
Reign of Swords

Flight
Airmaster 3D
Space Rage 2
Dropship (best category I can fit it in)

Arcade
Tiltafun
Paradise
Radius
Crazy Tanks

Relaxation
Passage
Up There
Ancient Frogs

Music
TapTap Series (Guitar Hero for your iPod; some in the series aren't free)
Guitar Rock Tour (Guitar Hero, just without the name)

Puzzler
Combination
Enigmo (very hard; not for the impatient)

Platformer
Artifice (sort of platformer/strategy)
Hamster House

Adventure/RPG
Stone of Destiny
Quest

Misc.
Papi series

Racing
Fast and the Furious

Fighting
Funky Puch (the only one so far; hopefully Toribash will come)

This list will be regularly updated. Feel free to suggest categories and add your own recommendations. After all, this is meant to answer people's questions before they ask them.

Remember to classify them please so as not to make people think games such as Monospace are space flight sims:P
