Hi guys. I'm a new iPod Touch owner as of a few days ago, and I wondered if there are any games you would personally recommend. The app store can be a bit of bog with all its crap games to sift through, although I've already acquired some very fun ones so far: geodefense, Civ Rev, Shredder Chess, Ms Pac-Man (swipe control works perfectly), Flight Control, Westbang, Pinball Dreams & Fantasies (old favorites of mine that are as enjoyable now as they were back when).... Anyway, the genre really doesn't matter. Just any game that really stood out to you.

Since I'm pretty new to this iPod Touch thing, I was curious how updating apps works as most will see future updates to add features, squash bugs, etc. Are you notified of new updates or do I have to find out about them myself? Just redownload the new app? Will it simply replace the old one then? Thanks in advance.

Puzzle Quest, Tradewinds 2, CivRev ;) , 9innings Baseball, NFL 2010, RealSoccer09, and Solebon card games.  Underworlds has been fun as well.  And, don't forget all the smart, fun games by Koko Tap.  :D

The App Store app will automatically show updates for any apps you currently have installed on your touch.  Whenever I reinstall apps from iTunes, I usually discover an update that was put out for it.

It's much less silly than "dojoboy".  ;)  Anyway, I also recommend Realmaze3D.  Get it, or I'll punch tBC.  Also, Zen Bound.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Say, Eric, will The Magical Flying Pink Pony app ever appear on the app store? That one would be ace. ;)

I could also recommend Trism (a true iPhone classic), The Quest (for RPG nuts) and some Tap Tap Revenge game.

Well, I've gotten a good few great little games since my last post. Some of which are:

Saucelifter - a terrific retro-arcade-style remake of Choplifter with very fun tilt controls
Run! - my favorite microgame so far; I've been playing it a lot while riding the bus
Textropolis - very relaxing but challenging word game
Meteor Blitz - best arcade shooter available
Balloonia - a fun take on Popcap's Rocket Mania
Snakie - cool take on Snake in 3D space

It's a mixed bag. On the one hand, it's very well made (even considering it was one of the first iPhone games ever). On the other hand, the game is very frustrating since it becomes extremely difficult early on.

Cool thanks,

I've been playing Myst lately. It's been about 15 years since I last played the game and I didn't have a functioning copy of it any more so I picked up the iPhone version. It works really well on the iPhone. Pop in some earphones, kick back on the sofa and tap away. Love it all over again.

I ve recently bought Horror Labs, and this is really old school fun like Zombies ate my neighbours.

One of the most entertaining with lots of strange humour I found in quite some time.

I second the Myst recommendation.

I tried Secret of Monkey Island for a few days and gave up - found it somewhat juvenile.
