    Personally, I'm partial to the puzzles in Enigmo.

    galcon or icopter

    there isn't a better game out there on the iphone in terms of replay value and pick-up-and-go. other games either fail on the entertainment level or require too much time playing, thus greatly depleting your phones battery....which, the point of a phone is having battery power so you can send/receive CALLS.

    if you wanna play engrossing games, the iphone shouldn't be used.....get a psp/ds/ps3/xbox/etc. why people spend so much time on an iphone depleting their batteries is beyond me. not to mention, the more you play those games *cough* enigma *cough*, the more your battery wears out and reduces it's overall life cycle.

    Another vote for iCopter, yes the graphics are old school and there is no sound BUT for pick-u-and-go value it can't be beat, it is easily the game I play the most and I have most of the big name titles. Labyrinth is also another good one but I find the games that use the accelerometer can be awkward to play in a lot of casual gaming situations like while commuting.

    none

    they are all pretty bad


    Aurora Feint is at least kind of cool, and it's free.

    I bought Funky Punch while it was on sale....meh...

    Wait till Sunday and get Spore

    fingers crossed for an app/game that is actually cool and fun....

    Yes, I agree with this post completely, I'm not much of a gamer, especially on a phone. I have been taking public transportation alot lately and just looking for something fun to occupy the time. I'll check out those two games.

    They all are pretty bad, at least the ones I have tried. Some seem sort of cool at first but 15 minutes later they get boring.

    I have seriously played Galcon for roughly 50 hours over the past month and a half.

    I'm not even kidding. I have 1,159 games logged in the 'net play. Assuming 2 minutes per game (a good average) that's 38.6 hours of net play. And, of course, I played against the computer a lot before that, so I'm gonna guess 50 hours total.

    At $10, that works out to roughly $0.20 per hour of play. And I'm not even bored with it yet.

    Galcon is a good choice as is 2 Across.

    It would help if you told us what kind of games, etc. you're into.

    I'd say Texas Hold'em, although Galcon is fun too.

    Super Monkey Ball and Enigmo are pretty good.

    SMB is hard at first but gets easier to handle...and I find Enigmo very challenging.

    So far, I have Crash Nitro Kart Racing, Super Monkey Ball and Enigmo that I actually paid for and I have by far spent the most time with Enigmo. It's so addicting.

    I'm playing scrabble at the moment. I like the fact that I'm using my mind ;) and the iphone is great way of playing this.

    Scrabble on the iPhone, interesting idea. I may check that one out.
