    There are many others out there too. I never thought I'd become a junior thread monitor, but forum searching can be your friend ;)

    Great threads, but a lot of them are old!

    Blue attack and blue defense are good. And in your price range.

    True that they are old, but they could be revived instead of starting new ones. The funny thing is that even when someone starts a new thread like this, half the games that end up getting listed are old anyway :)

    My problem is that I'm really new to the iDevice scene, so for me all games are pretty much new :rolleyes:

    Strategery is cheap and a lot of fun.

    If you like thinking/strategy, and your budget is $2, then I recommend saving $3 on food this week and getting 7 Cities (tower defense but with a lot of options/depth) for $5 :) It has a free version too.

    For thinking and physical problem-solving, Fantastic Contraption is great. But you'd need to save an additional $2 to afford it!

    Galcon is a simple, rapid strategy game with free and $5 versions.

    This has already been said, but I feel like reiterating. If you want a cheap game that will keep you amused for a very long time, get blue attack and blue defense. They are 1.99 and .99 respectively and are incredibly addicting and offer great re playability. Keep in mind though that blue attack is a much more in depth experience, while blue defense is something that you can pick up and play at any time.

    Thanks for the reminder about Blue Attack--I'm downloading it now. (I wouldn't call those "thinking" games as requested by the OP, though.)

    The game is currently $3.99, but they are planning on adding at least one more world, and the price will go up with each world. If you buy now you'll get the extra worlds for free!
     
  12. Problem with trying to classify games at $0.99 is some stay there and others fluctuate so much that best thing to do is create a want to buy list (appsniper has snipe list) and when you see your game on sale snag it. A long time ago I used to try to keep prices current in my best game list and quickly realized it's a futile attempt.

    I agree, mrbass. I do still maintain my own list (because I'm sick and it's fun), but I'm sure a lot of my prices are out of date.

    Since it seems to be appearing in a lot of lists lately I have to know, what is the appeal behind SpaceX? It was fun for a little while, but once you've bought everything (which happened around level 13 for me), what's left to do?

    but yeah its like a one time thing. but its a good one ;)

    ALSO: BobbleSurfer (0.99) is very fun, and dont be discouraged by how hard it is at first. that's the whole fun in the game, learning!
