I tend to lean towards arcade/puzzle games

Pretty much what you're asking is "should I get a hummer, a kitty cat, or an apple?"

IMO I'd go with edge. the lite version of galcon tided me over (you might wanna check it out. it's more than most "full" game in the appstore). I love edge, and judging by what you said, I'd say it'd fit you the most (47 levels baby!). ancient frog is more of a though/puzzle game.

oh, and next time, use the search feature

I have Galcon and Edge. Personally, I like them both, but they are very different experiences. Galcon is kind of a pick up and play any time type of deal. While Edge is more of a, run through once, or run through getting best times. I don't see myself going back to it a ton. That being said, I had a LOT of fun with Edge. I think Edge probably left me more 'satisfied' in that when I completed it, got that... completed a good game feeling. Galcon though, I keep going back to now and then, and its a fun strategic game.

Hope that helps. I don't know anything about Ancient Frog though.

Then Edge is probably the better choice. Galcon is more of an RTS. Actually, it is an RTS.

I play Galcon a lot more than Edge, but they're both a lot of fun. Depends what you wanna play.
