    Hey everyone I'm looking for some new games on the app store.
    Any one have any recommendation?
    I kinda want games that have a good story line and aren't really a mini game.

    Thanks In advance

    Cooking Dash is one of those games that looks like it's just for little girls, but it's actually a nice challenge and a great way to waste some time.

    Playing Galcon online is still my favorite use of my iPhone.

    I Dig It is pretty cool.

    Flight Control is popular, but I'm actually enjoying Harbor Master more as there's a little bit more to it since you have to get the boats in and out of the map.

    Reaction is a nice relaxing game that rewards patience.

    Chopper is pretty good for what it is.

    I'm a fan of Bejeweled 2, but I know not everyone else likes that sort of thing.

    If you like GTA you will definitely find yourself enjoying this. The graphics and gameplay are simply amazing and one of the best games I've played so far on the iPhone platform. I can't believe I'm playing this on my phone while sitting on the train. I feel like I'm playing on a console. Now you can steal cars and shoot cops from your iPhone! If you'e ever enjoyed playing or even watching grand theft auto, this game is worth every penny!

    I can highly recommend Drop7 - it's like Tetris but with numbers. Simple, complex and extremely addictive! (There's also a free 'Lite' version available.)

    Flight Control is an addicitve little game, good while on the toilet.

    Civilization Revolution is just an amazingly large strategy game on the iPhone. I'm a Civ Rev noob, have Civ Rev IV on the computer and am baffled by it. The iPhone version is also baffling, but a lot less micomanagement. I actually took over a few cities and lost one just today. The DS manual is downloadable, so I will read that as it will help a lot. This is probably the most game you can get for your money.

    Outer Empires is not out yet, but may be in a day or so if all goes well. It's a MMO in the vein of Eve Online. Start with a shuttle, and trade, build colonies, attack others, etc. You can play in a browser on the computer, and then seamlessly change to the iPhone. It was rejected from the App store about 2 weeks ago for how it communicated with iTunes. It was fixed and resubmitted, so should be accepted shortly. You can play for free, but XP is earned at half rate, and I think the types of ships you can control is limited. But you can still level up as much as those who pay. Subscription is $3 per month I believe, maybe $4. I dabbled in the browser a bit, and am really looking forward to the iPhone version. I considered becoming a lifetime member ($99) which grants immediate access to the iPhone app, but my better senses prevailed and I am just going to wait patiently. *checks app store again*

    Monkey Island Special Edition is a funny point and click adventure game. I'm about half way through that and am enjoying it

    That's why I only use it when I'm sitting. Less chance of a kerplunk :p

    I also saw that Beneath a Steel Sky is out on the iPhone. Another classic point and click adventure. Haven't played it, but it is apparently a classic. You can get it free for the PC, at goodoldgames.
