    What are your enduring games?

    Hi,

    I couldn't find a thread on this so hence a new one (similar to the desert island thread)

    I'm taking a look at my 9 page full iPotch and wondering what to delete when a new game or app arrives.

    I hate to delete the paid ones but its coming to where some of them don't pull their 'weight'.

    It got me thinking what are games I continue to play ever since I got them?

    What endures or has regular play frequency?

    True replayability based on numbers.

    Of course this changes over time when a new game is on board. I get obsessed then it fades.

    Note to devs: a new app idea: create an app that measures the number of times an app is opened or used.

    Anyway here's some of my list:

    What's new/hot:
    • Fantastic Contraption
    • Free Smiles
    • Combination
    • Drop7

    Here are my true Daily Durables or Working Weeklies

    Daily or at least once a week (heck, I may not even 'love' them but for some reason I found I keep playing them :D)

    • IQ Boost
    • MetaSquares
    • Gem Spinners
    • Trism
    • Deep Green
    • Kraut
    • Blocked
    • Vector Ball
    • Pipes
    • The Creeps!

    There is a middle range where I play them on occasion like once a fortnight or more frequently, but too many to list.

    just for fun, here are...

    Dying carcass types where I don't play as much as I'd like:

    • Pinch n' Pop
    • Antimatter
    • ScribBall
    • AlienMangle
    • Shaky Summit
    • Hidden Expedition
    • Enigmo
    • DizzyBee
    • Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab
    • SpiN
    • Mondo Solitaire
    • Topple
    • Burning Monkey Casino

    Of course, I don't want to play daily on a handful of levels :)
    For me, this game is exceptionally good!

    In My Head
    #1 Flight of the hamster
    #2 Final Fantasy CD
    #3 Sim city

    All 3 will stand the test of time for me, I could have just these 3 games and be perfectly happy...

    Also I have wanted Labyrinth since it came out, I noticed no price drops so i might just get it...

    I still don't get why people call it an ipotch, I can see itouch but just say ipotch out loud, you can't take yourself seriously after that.

    With percentages, an estimate of how likely I am to play each day.

    1. Jabeh (100%)
    2. Fish Bling-Bling (100%)
    3. Gemmed (100%)
    4. Nano (90%)
    5. Pocket God (90%)
    6. Scoops (80%)
    7. Smiles (60%)
    8. Strategery (75%)
    9. Textropolis (90%)
    10. Up There (80%)
    11. Zombie Attack! (75%)

    I have a full dock and lot of unsync'd applications, but these really stand out as having great replay value.

    Low self esteem? Itouch is an object for female stimulation (?)

    let's not start another discussion about that. if you don't wanna call it ipotch it's cool. ;)

    Here's my most played:

    #1 Slotz - Just brilliant! Brings back memories: ) Can't wait for the HUGE up-date!!!!

    #2 2079 - Can't stop. The best controls for a top-down shooter on the iTunes store that I have played. Very polished.

    #3 Centipede - Never played it back in the day. Making up for it now. Must...beat...last...score...

    #4 Chop Sushi - The first match 3 that doesn't feel like just a time killer.

    I still like to play TanZen since it doesn't really get boring. Flick fishing lasted a pretty long time, and I still play it sometimes.
