Your Top 5 Games?

So what are your top 5 games you've downloaded? List some reasons why you enjoy them so much.

Maybe this could help in keeping people from buying so much junk.

=)

In no particular order:

1. Virtual Villagers - longevity in an iPhone game, who'd have thunk it.
2. Moonlight Mahjong - very well done 3D version of Mahjong, not at all "gimmicky"
3. Fieldrunners - best tower defense game. Needs much more content but I believe it's on the way.
4. Trace - very unique and great fun to play
5. Everest - nice to while away a few minutes now and then.

Hahaha, there is a limit to my self-promotion Plus, it's not as much fun when you know the solutions to all the levels!

Haha, I guess so.

This is totally off-topic, but since you're reading this thread, what's a good book or something I can learn completely beginner Objective C?

Hmmm, you're asking the wrong person here as I didn't use a book to learn it. I studied the sample code from Apple and the documentation (it's actually really good.) I think I remember on another forum some users highly recommended 'Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X' but it might be best to wait a month or so (maybe less) as I believe there are a number of iPhone specific books hitting the shelves soon.

i agree...I learned from playing around with the sample code, and crashing the iphone simulator more times than not

and there should be some good books in a month or so's time...
