    I'm only reccomending these games because they are worth your time, whether they are worth your money is up to you.

    -Graviton
    If you liked 'Blimp', you will love Graviton, which came out before Blimp, but didn't seem to create the same level of buzz. The graphics are great, controls are strong.

    -ShapeShape
    Recent release. A slick platformer / get to the goal game. Comes with a built in level editor (fantastically designed).

    -Caster
    This game may not be for everyone, the controls are incredibly designed, BUT some people (and I understand why) have trouble with it. I'd leave this game in the hands of experienced and hardcore gamers. it's a truly unique tittle..

    -Aero Wings
    this is from the developer of Heavy Mach, and its very similar in gameplay. Just a real 'fun factor' game, jump right in and smash through some levels!

    Wow, thanks for the list! I've seen Graviton, Shape Shape, and Castor but I didn't know about Aero Wings. Will have to check that one out.

    While I have heard of most of these I actually haven't *played* any of them. Caster looks kinda interesting to me for some reason. It's a shame, so many fun games can be easily overlooked now.

    Both of the above games have lite versions you can try. Caster is a cool game but it does take some getting use to.

    I suck at Caster :p Only been able to complete two levels. As for unknown.

    Quick Turn. I launched a thread on it a while ago, but I still think it deserves more recognition. It's a great (once free) game. 99c, but really worth it.

    Electro Gravitron. Another awesome game. Wow, not free anymore either? Check it out, though.

    Durak. It has gotten some attention. Most polished of card games, IMO.

    I loved Karma star when I first go it, but I got bored with it. Limiting it to only eight turns really limits the strategies you can emply.

    Never heard about any of them besides maybe Graviton although I might be confusing it with another game. I'll check it out if I get the chance. Thanks for the heads-up.
