Everything by Illusion Labs. Their games feature some of the most clever control schemes that take full advantage of the available hardware. Mobigame's Edge was a significant shift in rethinking the old D-pad too. It's a shame the drop anywhere paradigm never really caught on.


Honorable Mention

• Forget Me Not
• Frenzic
• Enviro-Bear 2010
• Ocarina
• Eliss

In order of time spent playing them:

Puzzlemaniak: 20 Puzzle games, a wonderful daily challenge system
Tilt to Live
Tiny Wings

Then a long way behind, in terms of time:

Poppi: hugely underated super-simple game with so much style
:Shift: I must get round to playing the sequel
CrossFingers: Just feels so solid
Fox Vs Duck: Until Tilt to Live did it even better
Space Invaders Infinity Gene
World of Goo: Would have played more if I hadn't finished it on the mac

Even though I have left True Axis and the rules state you cannot mention games you worked on, I have to give Jet Car Stunts a nod - I actually play the game for fun...
