    So far some of the best games I have found in this range:


    -just got this and have already spent 2 hours playing.
    Not the best looking TD clone, but quite addictive and easy to play.

    -Rock and Roll
    -was $1.99 when I bought it. Great presentation and quite a fun game.

    -Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab
    -Customizable Tetris, Puyo Pop, and Columns with mission mode.
    Controls work well.


    -Was $4.99, great comination of physics and lemmings gameplay.
    Also has downloadable level packs.

    -Great customizable game of boggle.
    Can use own pictures for background.

    -I think this is the Iphones answer to Lumines with its slick presentation.
    Includes over 70 puzzles, Endless, and Timed mode.


    -Rising Blocks
    -Awesome action based puzzler (EX. Tetris Attack)
    Time Attack, VS. CPU, 50 puzzles, Endless, and Stage (reach a point limit).

    -Line Shift
    -Odd twist on bejeweled.
    Move columns and rows to match colored shapes and score to increase
    a decreasing timer (Phew!)

    -Match 3 triangles (trisms) to score.
    Beautiful presentation and the game includes many twists like bombs to
    get rid of and wild cards.

    Sorry if this is a long list, but there are that many good games!

    What are your best games for $2.99 and less?

    Other than the ones that have already been posted:

    Theseus - $1.99: just got today and love it. I've played these kinds of puzzles before and they're great. Even if it's simple graphics, they're great puzzles.

    Vektrax - $.99: Also got today and also think it's great. There're a couple threads about it right now.

    Burning Monkey Puzzle LaB - $.99: It's a lot of game for $.99. Used to be like $5.

    Sprocket - $.99: Not for everyone, but I love it.

    Mastermind - $2.99: Gives your brain a workout. There're a lot of copies of it, but this one is nice (and I think the first).

    There are more and there's of course the ones everyone else mentioned.

    (these prices are what I last saw them as and may be a little different now, but probably around the same)

    Dizzy Bee ($3)
    Trism ($3)
    Enigmo ($2)
    Motion X Dice Poker ($1)
    Mouse About ($2)
    Rock N Roll (Free last I checked, I got it at $2 and it was well worth it)
    Flick Bowling ($1)
    Virus ($1) - this game doesn't get enough attention! My personal $1 pick.
    Trace (free!)
    Plank ($3)
    Ibowl (free!)
    Word Up! ($1)
    Biiball ($1)
    Black Jack Run Lite (free)

    I know these just came out, and I've only gotten a little time with them so far, but I can already tell they are worth your time:
    Topple ($1)
    Maze Finger (free!!)

    edit: I have to say again, that the fact that you can get those 16 games for less than $20 is exactly why I love the app store so much, also why I only have 11 spots left until I am out of app screens..please update this apple, I hate cleaning my fridge to get new games.
