List of games taking advantage of touch screen

Hello,

What are the games for which playing with a touch screen changes significantly the gameplay as compared to playing the same game with a mouse on a computer?

The first game I face like that was Flight Control, but I would also put fruit Ninja etc.

So ?

Every game on IOS aims at taking advantage of the touchscreen overwise they would bring there games to IOS

Dropped iPhone 6 on live tv. Became a viral sensation.

Just compared to a mouse? Because quite a few gesture games could be done with a mouse like Cut the Rope, Angry Birds (which is on Mac/PC) and so on. Flight Control is also on Mac and PS3 with Move controller.

The number of games that are really unique to iOS is pretty small.

There is a cute little game called Robotco. It doesn't have the sharpest presentation in the world, but it's a very nice little time-waister that could only have been created with a multi-touch device.

What a sexist thing to say, especially from a man who always COMPLAINS about games over $0.99. Are you a cheapskate or a tightwad

Well, I can complain because I'm a woman (with a surprise in low area - ye, a shemale - have some racist insults to tell me?). And, ye I'm a tightwad and proud to complain about games over a buck. Are you satisfied now?
Anyway, if u are interested PM for more hot details and numbers (and prices, of course) about where we can meet and what we can do togheter (don't care if u man or woman). Thanks!
