What are the best Match 3 games for iPad?

I am a match 3 addict and have been wondering what others might list as their Match 3 favorite game on the iPad? There are many out there with various degrees of difficulties and stunning ( and not so stunning) graphics.

I'll start out by saying mine is The Treasures of Montezuma. It is like Bejeweled but better. I liked the fact that there is a lite version so you can try it out first to see if you really like it. Graphics are decent, game is fast and only offered in time mode. It has power ups and save mode but is not in Game Center/Leaderboards.

Anyone else like Montezuma or what is your favorite match 3 game on the iPad?

I agree about Montezuma. Love that game.

Puzzle quest is another great match 3 game
I haven't played the ipad version though.

Ancient Quest of Saqqarah and Heroes of Kalevala are also amazing on iPad.

I'm not a big match-3 nut, but I LOVE Saqqarah.

Wondering if/when Bejeweled 3 will make it to the iPad...

Heroes of Kavala is my all time favorite together with Fishdom.

I already have Heroes of Kalevala and enjoy the hell out of it. I thought about getting Saqqarah a couple of times. But there are about seven games each with different themes. Do all seven make up the full game or are the differences between them just cosmetic. Because I don't mind paying 59p for it but I do balk a little at paying 7 x 59p for the full experience.

I've played and enjoyed all of the above on iPad but keep going back to 10 Talismans.

I hadn't tried Saqqarah, but after these recommendations I looked to find the iPad version on sale for $3.99, and just a few minutes with it makes me very happy I grabbed it. If you don't want to spend $7, this version seems to be a combination of the other individual games. Its very good.
