Paradise Quest has been out for awhile but a nice casual game. Nicely polished too.

I used to love Fruit Ninja and Doodle Jump, but they have been pissing me off lately. My new casual favorites are Cut The Rope, Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal, Monster Dash, and Tilt To Live. And if Pac-Man: Championship Edition can be considered casual, it also deserves a spot on the list.

Zombie Highway and Fruit Ninja are the only ones I really play anymore, although Tilt to Live is a ton of fun as well.

I suppose I don't speak for too many people who own iDevices when I say none. Emphatically, none.

Believe it or not, there is at least one iDevice owner who wants nothing to do with casually gaming. There is certainly a notion floating out there that virtually all iDevice gamers are casual in nature. This is part of the problem and why so few so-called "hardcore" games end up getting developed for the platform.

I suppose I've been tempted to download Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja just to try and see what everyone else sees in this whole casual gaming craze. When push comes to shove, I just can't bring myself to do it.

Uhh, dude, I respect your opinion and all but no one is gonna buy an iTouch or an iPhone and use it as a hardcore gaming console. That's what the XBOX and Playstations are for.

Betas: Victory Day, Victory March, Zombwich, Mission Europa, Shadow Era, Slice It!, Baseball Superstars 2011, Queen's Crown, Aralon: Sword and Shadow, Zombie Runaway, Third Blade, Tower Defense: Lost Earth

Hi Marcus.

There are already a few "hardcore" games available, or coming soon to iOS. Galaxy on Fire 2, Aralon: Sword and Shadow, The Shadow Sun, Real Racing 2, Modern Combat 2, etc. iDevices can play big boys games too.
