    What's the best pick-up game out in the appstore?? A game you could just open up, play for a few minutes, close it, then come back to it in a little while. Not a game like Hero of Sparta or BIA, where you have to play for long periods of time. Any suggestions? Also, no puzzles or sudoku please :)

    For me I have 3 go-to games right now: Touchgrind,Wave Blazer, and Touchsports Tennis 09. They load quick, easy interface menus to navigate quickly, all 3 save if you have a call, and the latter two save if you have to shut off phone quickly.

    Galcon. You can even do a pick up and play multiplayer game. There aren't many games in general that can boast that.

    Frenzic hasn't been mentioned yet either. It autosaves right where you left off.

    Dropship was already mentioned, but it's worth mentioning again.

    Dropship - So easy to get right into the action.

    Spin is very good in that, but also all the shooters like dropship (I actually think all the ng: games are perfect to pick-up and play XD), space deadbeef, vector blaster and 2079.
    Nice thread

    Haven't played TanZen but the others sure are among the best pick-up and play games out there.

    Dropship is ok, if you don't already have it.. I don't like the controls myself, but I'm beginning to get used to them..
