Looking for Some Underrated iPad Games

Well I tried the Mass thread to no avail, so I figured I could make a separate thread to hopefully get some answers or ideas.

Can anyone recommend some underrated games for the iPad (native or universal)? I'm looking for a good time waster, but something that goes a bit deeper than just running around (unlockables, collectibles, different characters, etc). I really enjoy rpg games, racing games, card/board games, but I don't enjoy shoot em ups or complex strategy games.

I have most of the "mainstream" and "popular" games out there, so I'm looking for games or developers that deserve more credit than they get.

While that is an excellent game (and it's universal now, too!) I already have it.

Wispin HD, not very deep but an excellent time waster. My favorite arcade.

Wispin HD looks like a fun game, but it looks a bit shallow.

Masyu, Masyu Bug and Monster Masyu all are universal. PuzzleManiak HD. Saqqarah HD is best matching game I think. Feast & Famine is not too strategic but ok to play with little ones or with AI.

Get Jet Car Stunts! I know it's for iphone and look half decent on the iPad but the gameplay is so good that it doesn't matter, try the lite version. Don't think it's underrated it's just "old" and not very hype anymore, but it's one of the best on the appstore

Yeah Jet Car Stunts is an awesome game, and quite challeging. However, I already have it.
