I just did a very rare rating update on iPhoneTiny to Bit Pilot (from 4/5 to 5/5). I'm totally addicted to this one, and I'm sure plenty of people here would love it.

Anyone got Star Wars Trench Run - is worth £2.99?
Yes - if you are a Star Wars fan and don't mind a game which lasts about 5-10mins!!
I am a massive fan but its not really worth the money - It should probably be 59p

I counter your "anyone got" with.....anyone got Star Wars Cantina - is it worth the money?

Nice little list of games there, very nice of you to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I've only got about five or six of them already & those I have I really like.

I really like the look of Space Deadbeef & will have to try a few of the others. Cheers.

Just picked up Helsing's Fire which is a very neat little puzzler with excellent presentation.

Yesterday I started Undercroft http://itunes.apple.com/de/app/undercro ... 40336?mt=8 , a nice retro RPG (lloks like the early Might&Magic´s). It an iPhone app, but I play it on the iPad, looks even a bit more retro zoomed in on the larger screen. I´m only one hour in, but hunting chickens for a barmaiden semms like a plausible retroish first quest ;-)

manygreat games here - regardless of them being free - some look great even if they were priced. Space Deadbeef is funny title too. This weeks commuting is looking up game wise!

Monkey Island 2 on the iPad. Can't recommend this enough. The updated graphics are excellent to such a degree that it still feels exactly like the original. I keep flicking the screen back to the old graphics to remind myself that it isn't just the original - my mind playing tricks.

Indeed - its almost as good, not quite got the style of the DS game and the 2 boys are slightly irritating.
But, its still amazing and if you weigh up the prices (59p vs £30ish) then its a winner!

Electric Box is probably the most addictive 65 levels I've played in ages.
