    I've heard good things about both, but which one do you think has more replay value?

    Also, completely unrelated, does anyone know how a game like batman can be ranked so high in the top 100 if it has an average of 1.5 stars?

    They're both great, but Tiki Towers is definitely more addicting, IMO.

    It's worth buying both, though

    Depends on what you like, the one is more of a action puzzler, the other is straight arcade shooting action.

    Regarding your other question: I have no frickin clue. :D

    Id say tiki towers, but its personal preference ;)
    And I think (notice its bold and underlined and italics) it has to do with how many times they have sold the app. A dev. could probably confirm it ;)

    Tiki towers

    tiki towers all the way, at least until the developer of world of goo(hopefully) ports his game to the iphone/ ipod touch. until then, this satisfies my craving.

    Tiki Towers was a lot of fun.

    As for Batman, has nothing to do with star rating. The star rating is just by those suckers who bought it and then realized it sucked.
    It's completely based on number of downloads, which just means too many people bought this. :rolleyes:

    Tiki Towers rocks! I think it might be the first game I've actually finished (and I even did the eco-mode). I just love how you can solve the same level multiple ways and how one little stick can be the difference between perfect and certain monkey death. Seriously, I was so obsessed with this thing that I ended up playing it while in bed last night. And it's only $0.99, you gotta be kidding me, it's really under priced.

    I bought this and Rolando the same day, and I found myself choosing Tiki Towers to play whenever I had a spare minute.

    So, to sum it up... I love it :)

    I'm gna buy Tiki Towers.

    As for Batman, its because its a brand name. A bit like how EA games and other mainstream games publishers manage to get into the top 100 in their first day of selling an app. People like familiarity.

    Both seem like they could last a while... I may have to pick both up myself!

    I've got both: to answer your main question, tiki is the best value of the two, you certainly get a professional app (although somewhere they forgot that the iPhone does multi-touch), while crazy seems like it's the starting point for a better game.
    The two could hardly be more different though; a 2d puzzle vs a 3d action shooter?
    Get both! 

    Tiki has a lot of achievements to unlock, and rewards you with 'making of' downloads and wallpapers. Crazy tanks on the other hand is more about the difficulty and scores at the moment.

    Tiki Towers didn't last me long, or is it just me? A good update would make Crazy Tanks a Top 50 game. As is, Top 100 or so.

    You're right, it won't take you a week to finish. It's addictive enough that you'll want to finish it in two days. :eek:
