Christ, I've probably got in the range of 300 paid apps. I needed to clean up my HD cause they were getting so messy.

Right now I'm playing Across Age DX, Canabalt, Fruit Ninja, Hook Worlds, Real Racing 2 and Plants vs. Zombies

If you like that, download the free I Must Run! game. It's quite similar but finite and has a couple of extra gestures (double-jump and punch).

About time you downloaded it. Jamie Woodhouse (the game's creator) was showing it off on the Sunday of Retro Rewind last year.

I've given Zombie Crisis a go and it's a nice little time waster, very much like Dead N Furious on the DS. Tried Spider-Man Total Mayhem too, reminds me of the PSOne Spidey games of old and not bad for 59p!

Just bought Horror Racing

66% off at the mo so its only 59p

I like super sprint games, seems like a good twist on that sort of racer. Screenshots look good, 59p bargain

Unless it's change a lot since I played it last, Horror Racing's iffy, with lightweight physics. Your best bet on iOS for this kind of game is Reckless Racing (esp. on iPad) and LilRacerz Pro Rally (which is very often a freebie).

Thanks for the heads up. I'll be grabbing that one after work then, bah my iPhone is going to be full after installing it though!

I've been enjoying playing Sky Combat. Its a newly released 2D topdown vert shmup where one controls a helicopter, an attack boat or an armoured car in different stages. Oh, and its another 59p bargain too. :)

Yep i went for that one as well, plays very well, havent got to the other levels yet where you change vehicle but enjoying it so far. A lot of very good 1942 type games out there, yeah some are much the same but still a good laugh. Played Gun Bros a lot the other day plus i'm still loving Assault Commando (Best old skool commando game i've found). Still playing Star Jim a lot (Bombjack clone)

But really got into Grand Theft Auto, incredible to have that on iOS. Love that game.

I think I'll opt for Nova 2 - had my eye on it for a while but for 59p, it would be silly not to.

Exactly when its those prices you cant turn them down. I've bought a few games from those sales recently, pretty big filesizes but one or two i just de-installed and left them in itunes to play at a later date. Been a lot of good sales so i've had to buy a fair few !

I played it, but I didn't like it as much. I'm not sure why to be honest.

Gonna go get an iTunes card after work though.
I plan to get Dead Space, Beyond Ynth, Ramps, League of Evil, Minotaur Rescue, Sticky and maybe Burn the Rope.
