Supporting iOS Exclusives

This was listed as one of the features for a game called Cat Physics.

- EXCLUSIVE: Not available on any other platform than iDevices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)

I like that.

It's nice to see some developers remaining loyal to the iOS platform, and not rushing off to suffer through the piracy, fragmentation, and overall mess that's prominent in the world of that other phone.

Are there any other really good, exclusive, iOS games?

Traitors...

I used to hate iTunes too, but now I see it as a great way to find and organize all the media Apple has available. It's cleaner and more intuitive than anything Droid has to offer.

And once the Verizon iPhone comes out, I'm getting one. Or I might wait for iPhone 5 with Verizon. I'm excited. It'll be my first real iPhone, and I won't have to worry with carrying more than 1 device anymore.

So is Cat Physics the only iOS exclusive? I would add Infinity Blade to the list, but Epic Citadel was recently ported, and Chair hasn't completely ruled out the development of a Droid game.

I'm pretty sure a good number of games in the App Store are iOS-exclusive.

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

I bought Silverfish, and I'm loving the new mode.

But few openly say they're iOS exclusive, and I was just wondering if there were other developers who also had exclusivity listed as a feature.

You can't be serious. For starters, do you mean de facto system exclusives, as in which iOS titles haven't yet been ported, or contractual system exclusives? A game merely stating the fact of itself existing so far on a single platform does not a system exclusive make.

Alright... Basically, I would like to know which iOS developers don't have any plans for making Android or WP7 games.
