    Hi Oma. Looking at your list, I don't think there is one app there that we would all agree is NOT worth buying. There will always be someone who likes a game that someone else won't like. There are a few games we no doubt would all agree on not worth buying, such as any game from DS Effects, but you haven't listed any.
    So I think it's safe to say, if you like the look of any of those you list you should be ok to buy it. Just check reviews of the games before buying so you are aware of any short-comings (Asphalts lack of steering sensitivity option for example).

    I think all but one or two of us would agree Kroll is not worth buying.

    I personally think De Blob is one of the most ridiculous games ever made. Your run into walls. That's pretty much it.

    I guess there is more to it. Once in a while you have to tap on an enemy, which instantly kills them. Then you run into more walls.

    If you're thinking "it can't be that bad," go and try it. Within five minutes you be going "WTF? All I'm doing is running into walls."

    Enigmo is the only game worth buying from this list in my opinion.

    Most of the games from the list seem to be real console-style games and the iPhone misses a steering cross, analog stick and buttons. A good game should have good controls, so I prefer and recommend games that are made for touch-screens. Strategy-, Board-, Card- and Puzzlegames are the real winners on the iPhone. If you want racing-, action- or sportgames do yourself a favor and buy a real gaming system like XBOX 360, PS3 or Nintendo DS, PSP.
     
  8. You see, this is EXACTLY the point I was making earlier. I personally think the accelerometer control is PERFECT for racing games, so long as it's done right. The problem is, so far, it hasn't 100% been done right. Hopefully, Fastlane Street Racing and NFS will change that.
    But like I was saying before, some people aren't going to like games that others will. Just because you don't like accelerometer controlled racers, doesn't mean you should tell everyone else not to bother.

    They fixed the save system in Bugdom. It's a actually a good game now.

    get THTouch instead of texas hold'em. It's only a dollar, and it is better.

    I agree, it's not as flashy, but it is great for a quick game.

    Personally I think Asphalt 4: Elite Racing is the best racing game on the iPhone / iPod Touch so far. Enigmo is a great puzzle game with user created content.
    But if you are on a budget and want a racer, I would hang around for Need for Speed: Undercover coming out late December (I think).
    If you are buying now, I think you should definately get asphalt as it is a great game.
