The last five games/apps you deleted from your device

From time to time I tend to delete games I finished or didnt bother playing anymore. Here are my last 5 deletion candidates:

- Angry Birds

This one has been on my device since it was first released. To be honest, it never managed to keep me interested for long. Away it goes!

- Doodle Jump

One of my first App Store purchases. Gets old quite fast.

- Epic Win

It seemed to be a nice idea at first glance, yet wasnt able to keep up with my needs. Mobile Me Sync is just way too comfortable to bother with this, although the idea itself is quite creative.

- Karoshi

I have beaten this game and there isnt much replay value. I do hope they release more of Karoshi on the iDevice though. A short game, but well worth the buck i spent for it.

- Prisoner 84

Seemed like a cool idea at first, but never managed to keep my attention. Backgrounds and Enemies are just way too repetitive. I might give this one another spin sometime though, as there are several key elements that are very well executed. (ex. Animated Keylock) Im left with the feeling Ive dismissed this one too soon.

Sticky (got repetitive and boring)
MC2 (One of my fav games ever, but had to delete because it was taking up way to much space)
NOVA 2 (way to much space)
Dungeon Hunter 2 (Was laggy and a space hog)
I Must Run (got boring and was too hard)

***GAME (reason)***
--------------------------------------------
1. Carnivores (lame)

2. Death Worm (fun but mindless)

3. Dungeon Defenders (file too large)

4. Harry Potter LEGO (file too large, controls/stick feels wonky)

5. Uber Racer 3d (good for free but not RR2)

6. Braveheart (Very fun at first, but becomes monotonous)

7. Pinball HD (War Pinball makes these tables a joke - except Slayer)

8. 1951 World War (never really played it too much, but nice concept)

9. Gun Club 2 (500megs for a toy app, file too large)

10. Archetype (Unreal tournament in disguise, not a good thing)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Robot Unicorn Attack- It was clever for one week
Reckless Racing- I'll re-download it if it ever gets another update
Zenonia- I lost my progress when I restored my iPod, and never got around to getting back to where I was
Jenga- Not addictive at all, so I never played it
Flick Golf- No content, I'll re-download it after it gets Game Center and stuff

Not a bad idea for a thread. This should get some discussion.

Wow, you're saying Pocket God has more lasting appeal that the 250+ level juggernaut that is Angry Birds?

I have a "done" folder where i keep finished games that i have finished just in case. Just cleaned up a bunch of gameloft games. Assassin's creed, nova, prince of persia being the space hoggers. Also cleared a couple of games i couldn't get into. Sunday lawn and iTrials come to mind.

Interesting list. Death Worm has been wiped from my device long time ago, it was fun for about 10 quick games. Ive got Carnivores for free, its still on my device, although I rarely play it at all. Might be among my next candidates, but well see. Ill give it another spin first.

Ive purchased Dungeon Defenders aswell, although its not on my device atm. The bad German Translation ruined this game right from the start for me. There is no option to switch to English either. Might pick it up again after they fixed that. Archetype, well, its been fun for a few quick games. Overall the level design just felt awful though.

Are you kidding me? Hands down with all of the updates yes. I dont know how it stayed at #1 so long. Thank God Tiny Wings and Cut The Rope (For a while) took over!
