A Good Game for the Airplane

I'm leaving to go on vacation pretty soon and I want to get a pretty big three to six dollar game, one with unlockables or lots of levels. I need to kill five hours or so, what do you recommend?

snail mail, or sway since its new update. If you don't have asphalt yet, that would be a good choice too. Archibald's adventure would be a great platform game to get.

Playing: Hi How Are You, iBlast Moki, Rolando, ScareCrow, and all of my Plus+ games.

Some sort of adventure, racing, or sports. I've looked at edge, sway, and fastlane, but I wasn't too crazy about their lite versions.

You know, the iPotch won't last you 5 hours on a single charge. You should either get a battery life extender which uses AA batteries or bring a book as well.

Games I recommend: Let's Golf, Sentinel, Aqua Moto, Crazy Snowboard, and yes Snail Mail.

Also, because Wegmans was so excited, get FlightControl...think of irony as you're on a plane.

Sully's Flight. Perfect to play on the plane

Well as far as adventure games go, I enjoy Bounce On and Archibald. But with Archibald, I'd never play it on a plane. You run into levels where you try so many times that you start to sweat and feel nauseous. Archi is more about solving a level, whereas Bounce On is more about avoid enemies and overcoming small-scale obstacles. Both of them have a ton of levels.

PS. Keep your brightness down if you don't have a method of charging.

But in all seriousness I fell in love with Hero of Sparta, The Quest, Payback and Brothers in Arms to kill time.

Rolando is a pretty kickass game that hasn't been mentioned yet.
