    Why spend any money?

    There are plenty of full featured games that are free
    Aurora Feint, Tap Tap Revenge, Cookie Bonus Solitaire, and Cube Runner

    if I were to only buy one game, it would be Galcon. I did a review on it a few days ago if you want more depth to my answer

    Check out the reviews found here on TouchArcade, my site (link below) and iGames: http://www.lockergnome.com/igames/

    Reviews are a great way to find out what's worth buying and what's not. Also forums like this one is a good indicator of what some good games are.

    I agree with VegastTnT that Galcon is a good investment. Another favorite of mine is MotionX's Poker.

    I also have a website for reviewing game (see sig). I think that Crash Bandicoot is a really good game for $9.99. Though, if your looking for a game that will last a while, this isn't the game for you.

    If you can stand to wait, Spore Origins and Need For Speed: Undercover are coming to the iPhone. They both should be good games.

    I don't mind if people ask what game they should buy... except provide some background! List a few games (console, PC, whatever) that you DO like, styles you like, styles you hate, etc. Like timing? Hate timing? Like plot? Couldn't care less?

    Lets turn this thread into something more useful.

    ---> What game should I get next? I like smooth graphics, no lightning reflexes required, and ideally <$6. I don't like sluggish interfaces. Any genre is fine, leaning toward Adventure/RPG or Puzzle.

    Personally I would go with Dizzy Bee. Its a fun action puzzle style game that has Nintendo polish and design written all over it. Its fun for casual gamers and hard enough to master that hardcore gamers will enjoy it as well.

    Instead of me just telling you about it the fine folks at Igloo-Games released a "demo" version of the game called DizzyBeeFree, and yes its free.

    The demo has a handful of levels and gives you a good feel of what the game is.

    The full games is $2.99

    App Store Links:

    DizzyBeeFree

    Dizzy Bee

    Also here are some free Dizzy Bee iPhone wallpapers straight from the developer!

    If you have any more questions about the game feel free to do so, I am more then willing to help.

    Just checked out fingergaming.com and the quality of the few reviews I just skimmed and the layout/design of the site are top notch. Definitely will be looking forward to new posts. There seem to be a lot of review sites popping up, but he quality is across the spectrum, so thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks for the kind comments guys, it is most appreciated. I'm certainly having fun doing this, and I really believe iPhone/iPod Touch gaming is going to be huge.

    Lol. Tmonine definitely beats my record of bumping an 8 month old thread. Though mine was to report a sale and this one had apparently no reason whatsoever. :p
