Games with No Loading Times

I'm curious to know which games are able to load the quickest - optimally with no loading screen at all. Rolando seems to be a great example of this - taking very little time to go from the start menu to the game itself.

Any contenders?

Sway actually loads incredibly fast! Guess those <8MB files sizes actualy have some value!

*Other devs take note!

Any game I have set up to run with "Backgrounder" has instant load times. It's good stuff.

How fast does Warfare Incorporated load up? Does it go straight to gameplay?

Fanastic Contraption loads really quickly, although it doesn't load you 'ingame'
Textropolis throws you right back to your last save state incredibly quickly.
WordJong also does this - although it has a load screen it doesn't load long at all.

PuzzleQuest has start up loading but after that the game never needs to load any more. While it loads quickly for me it's probably twice as long on iPhones.

If you have an existing game going on, from the moment you click the springboard button, you'll be gaming in less than 3sec. Otherwise you just have to choose a mission- you'll get a short breifing of objectives and you'll be playing in less than 30seconds.

PuzzleQuest takes far too long to load, that's really my only problem with it. What I'm really looking for is games that load straight up from the Home Screen.

Fantastic Contraption loads up very quickly for being such a large game
WordJong placers users right into the game board after an exceptionally brief title screen.
