I have them all, except three games. As stated in the Snark Busters thread, but now there are going even more iTunes bucks away.

What are the prices for these games?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Oh my... guess I won't get away without nearly completing my Alawar collection.

I also told my friends here to either support you or to get tarred and feathered.

I don't have any of them too, which one should I buy first?
I'm thinking Hamlet and Twisted Lands.

Bad choices!!! Wait for Big Fish and G5 sales to get some serious hidden objects-puzzles game (regarding Twisted Lands) and don't pick up Hamlet...very very short!!

Try again

There is nothing wrong with Twisted Lands; not only does it have high production values, it also has a substantial length to it (for this type of game, at any rate), and a strong adventure component that elevates it above a lot of the offerings from the other houses. Pure HOGs are, fortunately, on the way out in favour of adventure game hybrids, and I'm glad to see that. If you can pick up TL for $1 (or equivalent), it shouldn't even be a question in your mind.

Hamlet is a little different; it's more along the lines of Gobliiins and Machinarium, albeit with shorter rooms and fewer puzzles. It's more of an abstract game, with very minimal text and dialogue, where tapping on the environment to see what it does and how it interacts is basically the way to progress. It's not hugely long (you'll probably find it takes you an hour or so depending on how you do with the puzzles), but for $1, still worth playing.

Personally, I'm still more a fan of the old point-and-click style of adventure (Gabriel Knight, Broken Sword, etc.) of which there are too few on the app store, but I've still picked up most of the offerings from Big Fish, Alawar, and G5 for my iPod.

Well actually I don't have to wait. All Big Fish Games has been on sale since last week (iphone $.99 and iPad $1.99) and I've just bought Secret Mission (full).
I have most of Big Fish games (except the ones with IAP).

Because of your opinion, hmmm hesitating.....

Is Hamlet as short as Scarlett and the Spark of Life?
If so, then..... rethinking on buying...

I'll try again... on another apps.

I have been trying to grab the IAP for Dancing Craze HD since last night, but I keep getting an error that it can't connect. Is there an issue with the server somewhere?

Also, playing the Lite/Demo of Dancing Craze, it will not use the player name I type in. It just defaults to Player, Player1, Player2, etc. no matter what I type. Does that get fixed after I download the IAP? I want to buy it for my daughter and would like to have two named players so we don't have to remember who is 'Player' and who is 'Player1'.
