Default Favorite "expensive" iOS game

I have arrived somewhat late to iOS gaming. Prior to getting my iPhone last October I did all my gaming on a psp or ds (obviously I enjoy mobile gaming). Being used to mainly psp gaming I was surprised by iOS pricing structure, which seemed to relate anything over $1 as expensive.
I am interested in what people's favorite "expensive" iOS game is. I recently bought Starbase Orion for $7.99. I was impressed that the dev stated it would not go free, and has had no sales after the intro sale, which was over a year ago. The game is phenomenal, and I wouldn't have batted an eye at paying over twice the price for a similar game on the psp.

Hmmm... Smurf Village. Invested like $1.200 or something in Smurf Berries.

I agree it's hard to justify $35 for iOS Final Fantasy Dimensions. I got it for ~$17 during the Square Enix year end sale and it's a full blown retro jrpg with good entertainment value and a surprisingly strong script. Originally I picked it up on a whim and for completeist sale (being a FF game I hadn't played) but was unsure due to it's phone origins and it's one of my favorite iOS rpgs.

I haven't gotten around to The World Ends With You yet.

Both still miles better than freemium; I'd rather pay $35+ for quality.

The Pinball Arcade,if that counts,it's one app but since you can buy just one table pack it's not per se very expensive . I own all tables making it the most expensive app i have.
Otherwise TWEWY.

Pick your poison:

Dead Space
Ravensword 2
Chaos Rings
Chaos Rings Omega
Chaos Rings 2
FFDimensions
FF3
FF4
The World Ends With You
Demons' Score (purchase all Pacts)
The Walking Dead (all 5 chapters)
Yesterday
Summoner Wars (purchase all factions)
Neuroshima Hex (purchase all factions)

Also, if you just want to throw cash into a game, most Glu games have excellent production values, but have serious paywalls, and IAP which makes it expensive might just make the game enjoyable for you if you dont mind paying extra.
