    I'm a little biased but there's an unlockable mini-game in Debris which I think is actually among the best pick up and play games out there. Our next game will actually be a complete title based on that unlockable. When that arrives it will be one of the best choices to play when you've got just a few minutes to kill.

    Other titles I enjoy in short burst are Dropship (great game), X-Plane, Topple, and Cube Runner. I also enjoy BIA and other more intricate games but usually I'm quite busy so the 1-5 minute burst games really capture my attention.

    What's debris about?
     
  3. My favourite PUAP games-
    Virtual Pool (literally start playing a quick game within 5 seconds of pressing the app button)
    PapiJump
    TS Tennis
    iShooting Gallery
    Eat Bunny Eat (don't half get fast!)
    Trace
    MotionX Poker (dice, not cards)
    Venger
    AutoMangle
    ZombieMangle (not out yet, but when it is I thoroughly recommend it for a good quick blast)

    Scoops, Dr. Awesome, Plateau, Mouse About, Motion X Poker, Fuzzle/Beecells, Bubble Bash, Bejeweled 2, Mines.

    I have two home screens for games. The first one is for one-handed pickup-and-play-games ("toilet games") and the second on for games, which take a bit more, like 2079, Dropship, Enigmo, Snail Mail, Fieldrunners etc.
     
  5. Haha! Too right mate. We may as well just call them toilet games from now on :D

    I'm gonna sneak a promo code in here for Scoops and hope the "toilet game" genre name doesn't stick! Enjoy!

    Fuzzle is awesome. I play it all the time - sometimes for 2 minutes, sometimes up to an hour. :)

    It saves right when you leave and its easy to start. An excellent pick up and play game.

    Exactly XD

    motionX Poker Quest... king of pick up and play. Sessions can last 30 seconds to 5 minutes, up to an hour.

    EA's sudoku is another one of my favorites if you like that... finish an easy puzzle in 5 minutes.

    I love Katamari - each round lasts around 5 minutes.

    These are the ones that I have found to be the most satisfying for those small sessions.

    Crazy Tanks. I love it, it's a great diversion if I have a few minutes to kill. Now at no.5 in the top 100 paid apps and more fun than anyone deserves for .99c. I hope it knocks iFart Mobile from no.1.

    I have to say ZoneOut is a really good pick up and play game...I find myself coming back to it again and again.

    What are more recent PUAP games?

    I was about to post a new thread when I found this one so yeah can people tell me what are some really simple more recent PUAP titles. I am looking for games like doodle jump or stay that have a lot of polish and replayability.

    I play Sky Burger on and off a lot. Same with all the Labyrinth games, Playman Track & Field (yes I still play that game xD), and Light Bike. Moon Drop, Peggle, and most TM games are good pick up and play too.
