What games to keep me busy on a very long flight?

Hi all, I'm looking for some game recommendations that will keep me occupied for a really long time.
I have an epic flight coming up which is 24 hours long and then obviously the same flight again 3 weeks later.

I'm not a massive gamer but stuff I have liked previously would be:

Sam and max
Super stickman golf (I have all of them)
True skate
Retro games
On consoles mario and zelda

What I don't want:

Rpg's where you need to build up exp, sorry just find them annoying.
Games where the controls are frustrating (super crate box I'm looking at you)
Stuff that uses wifi (I'll be on a plane)

I already have a couple of gta's which I haven't played yet and I think I'm going to buy 'beneath a steel sky' (I really like that kind of humour)
Any ideas?

The Walking Dead and all the episodes. The controls work better on a touch screen than a controller/mouse, and it's a good 10-12 hours long. You will not be bored; this is one of the best games of 2012 on any platform.

Heroes and Castles
Block Fortres

Two of the deepest games on the app store.

Ah thanks jbruu, I actually have the first part on my phone already. I'll have a play on it over the weekend and if I can get into it I'll get the others.

You won't regret it. Just make sure you have at least an A5 device.

Since you like retro point-and-click games, try also Gemini Rue, it's amazing.
There's also the classics The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, if you haven't played them yet.

Oh, I have an iPhone 4. I've just googled it and it has an A4 chip.

It'll run since you have 512 mb of RAM, but probably pretty choppy.

I agree that The Walking Dead is a great option. A long flight is the perfect scene to experience it.

Gemini Rue would be another awesome story. Its incredible.

Additionally Badland for some dreamlike arcade action.

King of Dragon Pass is massive but might not be your cup of tea.

Probably cool to have Flight Control on there as well to freak people out when you're about to land.

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations
