Default What was the FIRST iOS game you ever downloaded?

To keep myself from falling asleep during an incredibly boring conference call, I decided to scroll through my purchase history, partly to see if there's some amazing games that I had once bought that wouldn't run on the device I had at the time.

Man was it depressing. I can't believe the literally hundreds of games that I've downloaded and never finished (and probably several hundred that weren't worth finishing). And there's also an incredible amount of classics that I wish I could keep on my device but just can't for space and the continuing addiction to wanting the latest great game.

Anyway, I thought it'd be fun, especially for us senior members, to post what our first iOS games were. I'm still not entirely convinced that my purchase history is even complete but it turns out that mine was Hero of Sparta, which I guess sort of makes sense since that was released in 2008 and was likely to be considered "cutting edge" as far as cool graphics to show off my iPod Touch 2G.

So what was your first? Don't be embarrassed either. We've all downloaded some doozies at some point.

First game I bought was Vice City , but first game I downloaded and played was Metal Slug 3.
Actually I wanted to play Lunar first and foremost, but as I was traveling at that time and had no solid Wifi connection it had to wait until I came back home, alongside many others that were instantly purchased

Same here! A friend showed it to me, and then when I got my first iPhone (3GS) in June '09, the first game I bought was Flight Control.

Either Project Hero or Gun Bros. I went free game crazy when I got my 4s in Dec. '11

My purchase history is a wasteland of f2p, Tapjoy offers and stuff on sale ill never get to. You are not alone...

I'm pretty sure the first game I downloaded was one of Glu's F2P hunting "sims". Pretty sure it's pulled now.

The first game I can recall downloading, shortly after I bought my first iPad, was the first Broken Sword adventure game, and it was actually on sale for 99 cents at the time.

Bugdom (1) on iPhone 3G, coming from WM PPC's & Symbian devices it felt like true console gaming experience - I rarely get that feeling now days
