My list of Underrated iDevice Games that should be owned by everybody

This is my list of Underrated Games that for some reason don't get the recognition they deserve. (also feel free to post your own lists so that more people can know about awesome little known games!)

;Shift;- AMAZING Puzzle Platformer that draws heavily from Portal. It has recently got more attention after being featured on freeappaday but is such an amazing game I don't see why it is rarely talked about

Blastination- I don't really know how to describe it but it is awesome!

Dark Nebula- Awesome Labyrinth type game

Light Riders- Like Lightbike only with a first person mode and a top down mode along with the 3rd person mode while it doesn't feel as polished it is still great fun and the different perspectives are cool

Govellius- A Retro Game that is basically the original Zelda gameplay mixed with some levels that are side scroller hack em up.

BloodyRush- Another one of those run as far as you can getting past obstacles and killing enemies but this ones graphics and style make it a step above all the others imo and should be ALOT more popular than it is.

Space Deadbeef- A FREE Side Scrolling Shooter that is absolutely fantastic and I have no idea how it isn't more popular

PewPew 1 and 2- My person favorite dual stick shooters in the app store. The Controls for both are absolutely perfect and the best controlling dss in the App Store thus far and the graphics style is pretty awesome.

Circletris- Basically Tetris mixed with Tempest! It may sound strange but it IS AMAZING

Gnester- Think of a Marioish Platform game mixed with Bejeweled. It sounds strange but is extremely addicting and one of the best games on the App-Store for puzzle fans and Platformer fans.

Claustrophobia- This is also awesome! Think Tetris only alot crazier

Arodius- A dual stick shooter with a pretty awesome graphic style

Zombeat- Think Tap Tap Revenge only 100 TIMES BETTER and with Zombies.

B-Boy Beats- An awesome music games that is like Elite Beat Agents or Ouendan! If you have played those games and loved them you will love B-Boy Beats

Saturday Night Fever- Another Music game with the Elite Beat Agent style gameplay but there aren't many songs and only 2 characters. But the 70's disco soundtrack is pretty cool as well as the character animations.

iSperm- A racing game where you play as a freshly released sperm cell racing to an egg... Extremely funny especially when you play around friends.

Orion Racer- The closest thing to F-Zero in the App Store and it is awesome

Andromeda Resistance- Like Missile Command only IMO 100 TIMES BETTER!

Momentum- Think Breakout but on a bigger scale and you move through levels

Squareball- Like Momentum only it's more like Pong than Breakout

Pandemonium- An awesome Platormer game

BeatRider- An awesome Guitar Heroish music game that you can use your own music to play!

Haha nice list, the only game on that list that I have is Space Deadbeef. It reminds me a lot of this one game called Cloud Phobia on the pc. There was a game that WAS my favorite but has been deserted by the devs and it was called rRootage... the game is seriously broke and has been broke for the last 2 os updates... (os 2 and os 3)

Well for me it was the graphics it looked like static and glitchy. I had to delete it after I updated my ipod to os 3 because I had hopes they were going to fix it. (Maybe try it and tell me how it works for you, this was on my 2nd gen so maybe with my 3rd gen it will work.)

Awesome list you have there! Here's my list of a few hidden gems:

Pure Hidden: hidden object game that is very artsy (with 400+ achievements)

Psychoban: interesting take on Sokoban with a horror theme and awesome storyline

The Magic Blackboard: very trippy breakout game with 12+ hours of gameplay

Marblenauts: awesome puzzle game where you guide your Marblenauts through a series of obstacles to there designated colors

Pathpix: INCREDIBILE number puzzle game where you connect pairs of numbers to for a picture.

DynoGems: match-3 game from the bottom up with a great control scheme and graphics

PEP the Dragon: cute platformer with "magic spells" to use such as drawing a bridge for the dragon to cross over

Hi,

Interesting list, have not heard of most of these.

The only one I own is Pandemonium.

Might have to look at the others sometime.

One of my favourite flash games that I bought a few days before it went free, and I definitely don't regret it.

Dark Nebula- Awesome Labyrinth type game
I found it too easy after the first few levels of playing it, although it is a neat game. I don't even know what it's like to fall off the edge, as I had never done so in my time of playing it. I deleted it within half an hour or so :l

Light Riders- Like Lightbike only with a first person mode and a top down mode along with the 3rd person mode
I was part of the hype train, and it's one of my most regretted purchases.

Currently Playing:Monster Dash, Ninjump, Monorace, Run!, Flying Discs, Bejeweled 2, Doodle Jump, Fruit Ninja, Moto X Mayhem, Zombie Escape
