Mass "Your Favourite iPhone Games" Thread

I hope a staff will make a sticky on this thread, cause I'm a bit tired of all these: "Your best games ever"-threads


Everyone can post his personal top ten/five games.. Maybe with a short explanation, why you love it.

Here's my top 10
1.Broken Sword
THE point & click -game on the appstore! Amazing storyline.
2. Avatar
Not only a simple action-adventure - it too has open world play!
3. Assassins Creed 1
One of the games I liked the most from gameloft.. Part 2 is nothing compared to that master work.
4. iBlast Moki
One of the few games, for which the iPhone was made for.
5.Jet Car Stunts
- fascinating level design in addition to a great challenge and fantastic controls
6. Real Racing
The best racing game on the appstore... Asphalt 4 would be on a special place, cause this game was the reason I bought an iPhone.
7. Edge
Definately a very unique game.
The hidden gem of the list. Great puzzle-racer.
9. Soosiz
My favourite platformer
10. BAR Oasis
Not really a game.. but the character design and the story are great. Relaxing, interesting.. key words that came to my mind.

Worth a mention:

Bugdom 2
Toy Bot Diaries

Playing: Assassins creed 2, GTA: CW, Frogatto, Tilt toLive, Zen Bound 2, Aerox, Ninjatown Three of doom, Trundle
Most Wanted: ...

I am quite new to iPhone and this is my list so far:-

1) geoDefense Swamp
I am TD fan and after trying out almost all of them, this is the best. I like specially the endless mode. In fact after playing this, the rest seems quite boring.

2) Angry Bird
When feel like nothing to do, this is the best to waste your time for a brain teasing. Not too stress but fun for a long time.

3) Paper Ninja
This is so far the most exciting and feel-great game in iPhone that I have. I almost throw away my phone because of this.

4) High Noon
When you feel like having a challenge with a real person, this is "the" way to do it.

5) TowerMadness
This is my second favourite TD. I put this as 5 because I cannot think of any others..... continue my search.....
