Two completely different games...

I would go with Edge if you like puzzles. The latest update added a new d-pad control as well as additional levels.

I suggest you read the thread on Oregon Trail because there is some talk that it is a bit scripted which if true kills the thinking part of the game.

Hope this helps.

Thanks. Also I was thinking about buying that 3D Brick Breaker Revolutions for the game. Do you think it is better than Edge?

I have both. I like both. I would recommend Edge. It is a great game. It is a long game. You can grab the soundtrack for free, here: http://www.mobigame.net/edge/iphone/soundtrack

Then, the next time you come into some money, reconsider Oregon Trail.

3D Brick Breaker is actually very good. It plays pretty smoothly and the graphics are a nice take on the traditional Brick Breaker. If you're looking for a more traditional 2D type game, then you can also try Block Breaker Deluxe 2 which offers tons of levels and a nice storyline.

Compared to Edge, I would go with Edge.

You are not making it easy by comparing apples and oranges and pineapples. If you want a brick breaker, that, in my opinion, is the best one in the store.

It sounds like you need to think about what you want. They are all fine games. I suggest Edge because it will keep you occupied for a long time.
