Missing Deflex, Minotaur Rescue and Super Ox War for the poll.

But my favorite is still Gridrunner.

Gridrunner for me, followed by GoatUp.

Huge fan of Minter and LlamaSoft ever since he put J Allard's face into the earliest levels of Space Giraffe, but Gridrunner especially will always have a place on my devices.

Love Goat Up and the new game but i've always been a fan of Minotron due to the classic game its based on.

Do really like some of the later levels of Goat Up though (Eg the one based on the Sinclair Spectrum game Manic Miner)

Always find myself going back to minotaur rescue but pound for pound Super Ox War is perfect. Can play on my phone or iPad and is equally good with touch or iCade/iCP controls. It's made me go back to five a day too which is actually fantastic - although i can't see the game center leaderboard.
Overall, Super Ox Wars for me though. Perfect.

Minotaur rescue, then gridrunner, then minotron 2112, then goatup. But really, all 8 ios releases are very solid games.

Favourites: Pix'N'Love Rush - Forget Me Not - Dungeon Raid - and all of CAVE's shmups

Gridrunner first, then a 3-way tie for second place: GoatUp, Minotaur Rescue, Super Ox Wars.

I honestly haven't gotten any of his iOS games (most came out prior to my upgrade to a 3GS so I couldn't play them) so I was kind of curious about this as well --- which one was the best.

Gridrunner kind of had my interest peaked the most until Super Ox Wars came out. Now, I'm confused. Why isn't Super Ox Wars in the poll?

Yeah SOW is probably the best, but Gridrunner is close. Since the poll doesn't include SOW, guess I'll vote for second best.
