If looking for good .99 games I suggest looking at what Donut Games have listed. Most are very good games.
Sorry but I'm not listing them all.

For a one buck fix, you can't really go wrong with most games at the top of the charts. Though people claim to despise Doodle Jump and Angry Birds, I'm sure those games kept them entertained for atleast a few minutes
Hell, even Pocket God is worth 99 cents

For the most part yes, but I think Helsing's Fire is one of the best puzzlers out there and They Need to Be Fed is the best dollar platformer I've seen. Those titles have not hit the top 25. I"ll add the 3 titles you mentioned to the list. But I propose that you add your personal faves.

edit: Not to mention Hook Worlds which is one of my favorite iOS games ever!

I am 99% sure Helsing's Fire was in the top 25 at one time. If not, it certainly deserves to be. I'm not so sure about They Need to Be Fed though.

It was. It might have actually been top 10 if I remember correctly.
