Puzzle Agent 1 & 2 are only $0.99 right now. Oddy was talking them up last year, so I pounced in them.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Two hidden gems on the App Store are Rhythm Spirit and Radiant. Rhythm Spirit is a classic " tap the button when it hits this point" game, but it has a cool battle feature and an entertaining story. Radiant is Space Invaders esque, but it has a weapon shop where you can buy and upgrade weapons and is quite addictive.

But it has virtual buttons and virtual sticks.

When did I say I had a problem with virtual sticks and buttons

Oh right, actiong game. Rockstar got it right. Controls really nicely.

On the iPad. No idea if it plays well on iPhone, because they're very different gaming platforms.

Game Dev Story only lasted about 3 days for me.... Loved it at first. Then, there was no more drive to keep playing....

My favorites would have to be Air Wings, Pinball HD, Infinity Blade, and Peggle. Then again, most Popcap games are pretty awesome!

Weebl Musicator and Russian Dancing Men.

With Musicator, I'm quite interested in being able to isolate the track channels in some of the Weebl's great songs, but it only comes with four. Fortunately, it isn't Saints Row the Third, and the extra tracks don't cost much at all, so I'll definitely be getting them.

As for Russian Dancing Men, has anyone else played it yet? It's a rhythm game, but it isn't quite as sophisticated as the ones I'm used to, and I'm not acustomed to playing games with the iPod Touch (it looks easier on the iPad). Also, I reckon I've got a fairly good sense of rhythm (after playing Ouendan on the DS), but I'm not sure if some of the cues are off beat.

It might be to do with my model of iPod Touch.

I've gotten through the first dificulty (whereby you only have to tap the screen to evade the many different obstacles), and can see a lot of hours in this. Each level is graded after all.

NOVA 3 is really, really, really fun. The multiplayer, apart from a few balancing issues, is outstanding. I only wish I had an iPad 2 so I could play on the bigger maps without ridiculous framerate issues. Even the indoor maps see some pretty frequent drops, but the fact that I keep coming back for more despite all that says a lot about how much fun it is.

The support for pre-iPad 2/iPhone 4S is pretty terrible though, so unless they smooth out the framerate you should approach with caution if you have an older device.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

It's probably also worth pointing out the really obvious here: This is a Gameloft game. Only buy if you can stand hopelessly derivative and cheaply made copies of better games.

It amazes me when people praise something to prove their point, and then turn around and knock it to prove another.

Gameloft makes no pretenses about being original. They make technically impressive mobile shooters with incredibly solid (and fun) multiplayer.

I haven't played the mighty Halo or masterful Call of Duty — all I know is that I've had a damn lot of fun with GL's shooters, and if you're looking for multiplayer FPS fun on the go you could do a lot worse.

Let's be clear here. There's not a single redeeming feature to these games in my opinion. However, I added Modern Combat in there as proof that the iPad/ iPhone can do a FPS that's popular and well received by the majority.

I'll just stick to playing the other 71 games on my list
