    KamiCrazy Lite, it's the only one I still have.

    99% of the time I upgrade to full version or ditch the game.

    There really isn't much point to favorite lite games. (my opinion)

    Any good game will be upgraded by sensible people, which skews the votes.

    I myself wouldn't even say KamiCrazy is a favorite of mine. :p
     
  3. my favorite lite games are both games that are worthy of purchasing the full version... or lite games that are so good that you really don't have to purchase the full version

    If I like the lite version, I buy the full one, if I don't I throw it out. The only Lite versions I have kept are Pacman and Lux because they are pretty complete and the upgrade is more than I want to spend.

    I forgot I LOVE DDR Lite that is until the full version comes out, then I will delete it and pay for the upgrade.

    Lite versions aren't meant to be kept as a normal game; only a demo to either push you into buying the full or ditch the game altogether. ^ ^

    Yeah obviously, but sometimes lite games are enough. Many people try to limit their app-buying.

    I used to worry that I spent too much $ on apps. I don't worry anymore.

    The lite apps that I keep on my device are mainly games that give me a moderate but not outstanding level of enjoyment in the lite version and/or are just priced a bit too high to justify a purchase. In other words, they're my on-the-fence games.

    For me these are Labyrinth, Archibald's Adventures, and Critter Crunch.

    When a lite Version is good I buy the full game, if its crappy I delete it.
    The only lite versions I have left are Void and Dragon Force (the full versions haven't been released yet).

    Rolando Light - I love the game, but think the lite version is enough
    Tatomic - Same as above
    Chuck the Ball - Will buy full when I get a giftcard
    Blue Defence - Once I beat it, might buy the full

    iShoot lite was really great.

    I still keep it because its good to show people the iShoot basics (before you blast them with things like the U-penaltrator) but I upgraded to the full version as me and my friends wanted more weapons.

    same here. it all adds up, but heck, it's fun :)

    there certainly are more and more 'lite' apps/games coming out. all great news.

    this last weekend i decided to do an app store search on 'lite' and obviously the list it gave me was massive. so i spent a good hour or 2 downloading. i've now got 3 pages of games/apps for free to try out.

    so far i've purchased a couple of full games on the strength of the lites i downloaded. it really is a good marketing strategy i think.

    2 Across Lite is a great crossword app--you can only download a limited set of puzzles, and then you're left with one new download a week after that, but that's still a lot of gaming (puzzling?) and the required skill level is nicely varied. I haven't tried other crossword apps to compare, but 2 Across works so well, with so many features, that I haven't felt the need to look.

    Some of the available puzzles are from the US, some UK, some Canada, and some Australia. I find the language barrier to be bigger than I'd have thought, so I stick to the US ones (NYT specifically).
