    What kinds of games do you like? They're all from different genres.

    I tend to lean towards arcade/puzzle games

    Pretty much what you're asking is "should I get a hummer, a kitty cat, or an apple?"

    IMO I'd go with edge. the lite version of galcon tided me over (you might wanna check it out. it's more than most "full" game in the appstore). I love edge, and judging by what you said, I'd say it'd fit you the most (47 levels baby!). ancient frog is more of a though/puzzle game.

    oh, and next time, use the search feature ;)

    I have Galcon and Edge. Personally, I like them both, but they are very different experiences. Galcon is kind of a pick up and play any time type of deal. While Edge is more of a, run through once, or run through getting best times. I don't see myself going back to it a ton. That being said, I had a LOT of fun with Edge. I think Edge probably left me more 'satisfied' in that when I completed it, got that... completed a good game feeling. Galcon though, I keep going back to now and then, and its a fun strategic game.

    Hope that helps. I don't know anything about Ancient Frog though.

    Then Edge is probably the better choice. Galcon is more of an RTS. Actually, it is an RTS.

    I play Galcon a lot more than Edge, but they're both a lot of fun. Depends what you wanna play.

    I'd go for edge in this situation... It's a nice game that is really fun... And it looks the coolest when you're showing off your iDevice.

    Ancient Frog. Nothing like it out there at the moment, or even similar. (except upcoming Zen Bound)

    You'll fall in love with it.

    Ancient Frog has my vote.

    All three are solid games though.

    My vote goes for Edge. I really like the videos of Ancient Frog, but did not purchase it yet. You can also try Galcon's lite version before you'll make final decision.

    I agree with Chiller, anyone new to the Appstore or TouchArcade should instantly purchase Zombie Mansion. Then, once you are completely...um..satisfied, thank ChillerOne.

    Excuse me for asking but who is EDNG and why has he/she been permanently banned?

    Ahem..now back to the games. I was kind of wondering about Zombie Mansion so thanks to those who recommended it and I had no idea about Edge so I will check that out too!

    I used to frequent another ipod touch/iphone forum when I first got my ipod touch 3 weeks ago (Can't imagine my life without it now! hehehe) that I quickly realized was full of children with very few adults that I could see, so this forum is a godsend! I love TA! :):D
