Pocket God or Tiki Towers?

I'm looking for an app for $.99, and came across these two (because they are both in the top 10!). I was wondering, which one is better?

I'm leaning more towards Pocket God, but what makes it great? I mean, doesn't it get boring after 2 minutes?

Also, how long does Tiki last? 45 stages seems a little short (I know, I know, it's $.99)? I tried the demo, and I thought it was entertaining for a buck, but the game seemed to have a bit of luck (where the monkeys go, which banana they go for, etc.).

Oh, and I'm also open to suggestions! (it just has to be $.99)

Thanks for any help! (Oh, and I'm not making a poll, since I want reasons, not votes.)

Tiki Towers is the only tower/bridge building game for the iPhone that I know of. As a fan of Pontifex, Bridge Builder, and World of Goo... I seriously loved Tiki Towers. My only complaint is it's a little too dumbed down. Your structure can almost be entirely broken and the monkeys will still hop across.

Tiki Towers has a lot more gameplay, if you're into that sort of game. If you're not sure, there's a free trial version available. Pocket God is cute, but I wouldn't get it if I could only get one $1 game.

But, what do you do in Pocket God after the novelty wears off? Drowning little characters can only last so long, or is this game different?

you should get Heavy Mach if you don't have it and like games similar to metal slug.
