    So what are your top 5 games you've downloaded? List some reasons why you enjoy them so much.

    Maybe this could help in keeping people from buying so much junk.

    =)

    In no particular order:

    1. Virtual Villagers - longevity in an iPhone game, who'd have thunk it.
    2. Moonlight Mahjong - very well done 3D version of Mahjong, not at all "gimmicky"
    3. Fieldrunners - best tower defense game. Needs much more content but I believe it's on the way.
    4. Trace - very unique and great fun to play
    5. Everest - nice to while away a few minutes now and then.

    Hahaha, there is a limit to my self-promotion :) Plus, it's not as much fun when you know the solutions to all the levels!

    Haha, I guess so.

    This is totally off-topic, but since you're reading this thread, what's a good book or something I can learn completely beginner Objective C?

    Hmmm, you're asking the wrong person here as I didn't use a book to learn it. I studied the sample code from Apple and the documentation (it's actually really good.) I think I remember on another forum some users highly recommended 'Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X' but it might be best to wait a month or so (maybe less) as I believe there are a number of iPhone specific books hitting the shelves soon.

    i agree...I learned from playing around with the sample code, and crashing the iphone simulator more times than not

    and there should be some good books in a month or so's time...

    Asphalt 4: It has motorcycles. That's enough.
    Imangi: I love a good challenge.
    Zone Warrior: Not the best game ever, but I'm addicted to it. It's very well made for a small dev. Worth the $$$ definitely.
    Fieldrunners: of coarse.
    Clusterball: The OP said "lately" so this definitely counts. It's a lot of fun and very well made, I just hope they add some options in the future, like different game modes. It's a good game though.

    My five favorite games currently would probable be in no specific order:

    Fieldrunners Awesome can't wait for the update
    Engimo still great, I play one level a day
    Dizzy Bee I just got back into it, and I forgot how great it is, and it really is a long lasting game.
    Marple This is a great puzzler, once you figure out the rules it's great
    and the last is a toss up between imangi/trism/trace

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    Notice: I changed my original post from "recently" to simply "downloaded".

    I'd like to see what your top 5 are so far since the app store started, not "my top 5 of the week" or something like that. We can always modify if neccessary. Or maybe just update your top 5 as the weeks progress and you discover or fall in love all over with an old favorite. If we need to go "Top 10" then that's cool too, I just sorta wanted to keep it simple ya know, without people posting their top 45-50 or something like that.

    So the tally so far:

    FieldRunners = 5
    Virtual Villagers = 3
    Galcon = 2
    XPlane = 2
    Moonlight Mahjong = 1
    Trace = 1
    Everest = 1
    Reign of Swords = 1
    iChess = 1
    Phit = 1
    Angel Rescue 60 = 1
    Areo Guitar = 1
    Topple = 1
    iFishing = 1
    ToyBot Diaries = 1
    Missle Command = 1
    Shaky Summit = 1
    Solar Blaster = 1
    Xplane = 1
    Air Hockey = 1
    Tetris = 1
    Asphalt 4 = 1
    Imangi = 1
    Zone Warrior = 1
    Clusterball = 1
    Enigmo = 1
    Dizzy Bee = 1
    Marple = 1
    Trism = 1
    Texas Hold'em = 1
    Aqua Hoops = 1
    JellyCar = 1


    Keep'em coming! I'll update the list as often as possible.

    Thanx!
