God damn right, nice to see Pix 'n' Love @ 9.

I would've put Spidey way higher than 25.

Not sure Osmos is #1, but it's definitely bound for the top 10.

Invaders Must Die.

All are good games, but I don't agree with the order they are in. NOVA and GTA: CTW should be higher up in the list. I don't know why the put Drop7 at number 2.
Also, where the hell is Enviro Bear and Jet Car Stunts? How could they not put them on the list?

Okay list up until the top 3. Osmos is definitely not the best game for the iphone. There are many great games not on the list including entire genres:

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templers
OMG Pirates
Sword of Fargoal
Space Invaders Infinity Gene!!!
Sword & Poker

and many others...

Jet Car Stunts was the one of the few critically acclaimed idevice games that probably crushed Levi's gamer ego, which might explain JCS' omission from both this list and IGN's recent two lists of best racing and retro games.

IGN is simply not up to JCS' standards of skill, this opinion being supported by Levi's recent claim (i.e. in IGN's article on the Retina display update - the first version of JCS was released November 2009) of having had to use Casual mode in order to successfully complete the tracks.

Just gone through it.. And the list is very decent, there's a lot of casual games i havent played but i'm okay with that. The games like NFS, real racing, chaos rings and GTA are most welcomed onto the iphone in my opinion
