    Crayon Physics is pretty fun. Also try 7 Cities TD. I've been playing that a lot lately.

    I don't have Uno, but Monopoly is nearly as good as the board game. I like it, and since it does everything automatically, it leaves you with the best experience, but almost the same length as an actual game. There are tons that might come out soon, like NFS, but we don't have a solid release date yet, just like Rolando, it could be anytime. There were 100 different dates for Rolando, and none of them had any backing until Neil Young announced it. I love Monopoly, well worth it.

    I would really think about waiting for equilibrio!! check it out on youtube, it looks great!!

    there are a few good games for wifi but the single player are better!!
    A cool little online game is adrenaline pool, its simple but fun!!

    Remember EQUILIBRIO

    My Recommendation Games for 2008

    That's a really interesting topic. Guess I'll spent some time here. If price is not a concern for you, well, check out the following list which I think is great and useful. For me, that is. :D

    # Puzzle
    - Labyrinth [$6.99]
    -> Great to experience the power of accelerometer and the stability of your hand. I clear 1 level per day. With the option to download other user custom level pack, it will keep you entertained for loooong.

    - Smart Sokoban [$0.99]
    -> By far the simplest and best sokoban game.

    - Know How [$0.99]
    -> Yet another puzzle game which require you to push the treasure box to a point. Nice 3D graphic and smooth game play.

    - Loops of Zen [$1.99]
    -> A very interesting puzzle game where you complete each level by closing the loops. Japanese are really good at developing such game.

    - Frenzie [$1.99]

    - Mines in Space [$1.99]
    -> Simply the best minesweeper game you can find! You can play it for years and yet fully unlock the achievements.

    - Hydrotilt [$2.99]

    - TikiTowers [$0.99]
    -> Build your bridges so that the monkeys can safety reach the finish point.

    # Racing
    - Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D [$5.99]
    -> There's been issue about it lagging in some scene, but it's still playable

    - Fastlane Street Racing [$3.99]
    -> A nice racing game where you can actually feel the speed sensation. It's pretty hard at first play. No radar that shows the layout of the track really make it a realistic racing game.

    - Snail Mail [$1.99]
    -> Smooth game play and nice graphic. You can't miss this one out.

    # Board Games
    - Xiangqi [$0.99]
    -> Features a beautiful water art. It's a chinese chess game. For me it's just perfect.

    - Monopoly: Here and Now World Edition [$7.99]
    -> Buy this if you love to play Monopoly but don't have anyone to play with.

    - Scrabble [$4.99]
    -> The name says it all.

    - UNO [$5.99]

    # Brain Training
    - Brain Toot [$0.99]
    -> Simple and addictive brain training game

    # Leisure/Relaxing
    - Scoops [$1.99]
    -> A pretty cute game.

    - Sneezies [$0.99]
    -> If you like cute stuff you definitely need to get this. The sneezing sound is what appealing to me.

    - Buggled [$0.99]

    - Giant Jigsaw [$0.99]
    -> A 3D featured jigsaw game. Truly one of a kind. Be aware of your battery bar. It drains out pretty fast with this game. It should be understandable considering the 3D engine it uses.

    - SPiN [$4.99]
    -> Silhouette matching game. Think you can think in multiple angle?

    # Tower Defense
    - FieldRunners [$4.99]
    -> I won't say much about this. My 2nd TD game.

    - 7 Cities TD [$4.99]
    -> Full featured TD game.

    - The Creeps [$1.99]
    -> With its fast animation and nice looking sprite, this game is a steal at $1.99.

    # Sports
    - Midnight Pool [$4.99]
    -> The aiming feature is great for beginners. You can also unlock more characters. Vivid and colorful environment.

    # Memory
    - Matches Plus [$1.99]
    -> Simple and elegant matches game.

    # Action/Adventure
    - Chopper [$0.99]

    - Amateur Surgeon [$4.99]
    -> Don't expect nudity here. :cool:

    - Bike or Die 2 [$6.99]

    - Dr. Awesome [$0.99]
    -> It uses your contact as your in-game patient. Really thoughtful.

    - Space Ninja [$3.99]
    -> A nicely twisted game whereby you dodge enemies bullets instead of shooting them.

    # Vision
    - Mad Shells [$1.99]
    -> Think you have a fast eye? They even have online leaderboard where you can compete your score with anyone. So far I can only reached LV29.

    # Role-Playing Game
    - Arvale: Journey of Illusion [$2.99]

    # Platform Games
    - KamiCrazy [$1.99]
    -> Guide your troops from point A to point B.

    Whew. Finish at last. :D
