The First iPod touch/iphone/ipad game you bought

I'm really interested - what was the first game you bought for your iDevice (the first iPod touch, iPhone or iPad you bought - not an upgrade one when you're already familiar with the app store). Mine was DoodleJump - the only game (except Angry Birds) that I'd heard of. I'm guessing that it's gonna be quite a few people's first games as well. Also - only paid games - not free stuff - hence bought.


Hey there!

I updated my first generation iPhone to 2.0 two days before it was officially released and spent $15 on Tetris and $10 on Super Monkey Ball. EA lowered the price of Tetris to $10 by the time the firmware was released through iTunes but that's what I get for buying early.

Touchgrind! Also Peggle and Edge on the first day... can't remember any others but there were probably a few more.

Ah, Flight Control. A classic; almost forgotten by now
