What are your favorite iPad games?

I recently got a 64 GB iPad for Christmas (as I'm sure many TA members have), and I have a bit of money to spend on apps. Thing is, the iPad gaming market doesn't seem to have much to offer yet. It's probably because it's the newest device, or maybe it's because I'm overlooking some gems. I'd like to know what apps you already have and which ones you loved the most! Feel free to mention any iPad apps to avoid. Don't want to be wasting my money on duds. :)
Here are a few of my favorites so far:
Cut the Rope
Word With Friends
Pocket Creatures
Time Geeks
Zen Bound 2
Tap Tap Radiation

I actually liked the looks of that game! I'd consider buying it if they dropped the price, though.

I got it about a month ago and already have about 8 pages worth of a great game collection. I'll put together a good list to help you start out- give me a few minutes though

If you like strategy games, you really have to pick up Battle for Wesnoth HD while it is still 80% off. With hundreds of hours of gameplay it should keep you busy for awhile

Be sure to check out Shadow Era, a trading card game now with almost 3 million players, cross-platform multiplayer for iPhone, Android, web, PC and Mac for FREE!
