Must have games

Hi,

In 6 day I have birthday and get the iPod touch, so I search the best iPod touch games.

Can you tell me your top 5?


And should I buy the following games?

Virtual Villagers: A new Home
Fieldrunners (What is this game exactly?)
Stragegic Assault
De Blob
iPhysiks lite (please give me Infos to the different game modes)
Nanosaur 2


And this games I think are the classic iPod touch games. I would buy them all. Or do you think one of them is bad?

Asphalt 4: Elite Racing
Line Rider iRide
Super Monkey Ball
iGotchi

Thanks for your tips.
I know it's a long list, but please help me to find the best games

Greetings
Hannes

PS: My english is a bit bad, I hope you can read all

Stragegic Assault No.
De Blob No.
iPhysiks lite (please give me Infos to the different game modes) Nope.
Nanosaur 2 Sort of a technical demo, short and can get boring. No.

Asphalt 4: Elite Racing Decent.
Line Rider iRide Fun if you like Line Rider.
Super Monkey Ball Horrible controls, no.
iGotchi Never tried this one.

Thanks for your tips.

Anytime.

And I have buy Bugdom 2 ago few weeks - is it good? It's okay, didn't hold my interest for long.

Stay away from De Blob and iPhysiks lite.

De Blob got good reviews, but I can't understand why. You'll wonder what's going on for the first level or two, then you'll be like "Oh, I get it. That's it?" Then you'll put it away and never play it again because bumping into walls for fun is only entertaining for about one minute.

iPhysiks lite just doesn't really do anything. Try it if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it.

the only game that i would recommend out of those games is Fieldrunners
i've heard too many horror stories from the others

it also depends on whart type of game you like

so far, in my honest opinion

the best (so far)

RTS (real time strategy) : Galcon
TBS (turn based Strategy): Reign of Swords
TD (tower defense), its a split between mote-M, fieldrunners, and beseigement, depending upon what aspects that you like in that genre, mote-m, its difficulty/challenge, fieldrunners its graphics, and beseigement, its story
HG (best hook game? if there is such a thing) Asterope
CD (car demolition) AutoMangle, it gets better with every update and the developer is really involved
Best peg Jump: Hiqup
Best Papi Game: everyone by Sunflat, try PapiJump (free) for a demo
Best alternative to Irider: trace (free)
Risk style game: again, of the two best ones so far, V. Conquest and Lux touch (free), they both need work, but they are the best so far

I've also been enjoying Angel Rescue 60, Phit,

it really depends upon your game/genre interest

Wish I had stuck to those guns, demos should be free. BUT it is going to keep me from wasting $10 for the full version. And to the OP I'll just reiterate: DON'T BUY IPHYSICS LITE. The control mechanics suck and the game is boring. Get Jellycar instead, it's a little more entertaining and is (gasp) free.
