WireWay is the new OpenFeint FGOTD.
"xplore the world of Wiley, a lovable alien, and accompany him on his quest to find the precious source of energy called “Elan”. Use the innovative Touch controls to guide Wiley on his journey through 32 breath-taking stages and let him safely reach his goal. Using stretched wires, you move our hero through the levels. Jump from wire to wire, but look out for falling stones, eerie skulls or floors full of thorns. Collect as many Elan stars as possible in order to make Wiley jump even higher and farther by using super powers.
Two additional game modes provide variety and even more fun; In “Flick Trials”, reach your goal with the least possible jumps, and create a unique course for Wiley in the challenging “Strategery” mode."

Circus Pain is another one of the FAAD games right now.
"In “Circus Pain” you control the destiny of Igor, a former explosives expert that figured getting shot out of a giant cannon would be a safer choice of job descriptions. Boy was he wrong…
READY! AIM! FIRE!!!!
Make your way through 55 levels of some of the trickiest shots a human cannonball has ever attempted!
Work through 6 worlds from practicing back home on the farm to the cheers and jeers of the fabled MEGADOME!
No PAIN, No Gain! To make the shot you’ll have to get punched, wacked, smacked, zapped, and sometimes even shellacked before hearing the roar of the crowd that makes it all worth it."

Eggs in Space
is being featured on Great App a Day.
"HELP! The Eggs are invading - and we don't mean Easter Eggs! Spoonville's people need you up in the cosmos to defend them in this unique tap'n'crack game. Marvel as fantastic sights leap at you! Be dazzled by the stupendous soundtrack from our one-man electric orchestra! Eggs in Space is easy to play, tricky to master and impossible to put down. Open Feint and Game Center are both supported so you can pit your wits against the whole world to see who is the top Spoon. With two game modes to conquer you'll face more eggs than the Easter Bunny."

In for Super Stickman Golf - thanks for the heads up! Also, in for The Heist. Why not? The game you get, or at least one person got, is Eets (Steam version - I wish you could get the XBLA version instead, but oh well): http://www.eetsgame.com/

I'm also mulling over Tapper HD. I do like that game....

Neuroshima Hex Puzzle has dropped to 99 cents (again):

http://appshopper.co...hima-hex-puzzle

EDIT: decided to bite on Tapper World Tour HD @ 99c - GameCenter is a plus.

Regarding The Heist... ARGH! I hate sliding puzzles. I can't even figure out the second one. :( I know what I need to do, it's how you get the particular pieces into the right spot without messing the others up that I just can't wrap my head around. Does anyone have any advice on the basics of this type of puzzle?

Just like one of those 1-15 sliding puzzles, you will have to disrupt 2 rows whenever you move stuff around. Work one line at a time and figure out what piece needs to go where. once you have 2 rows figured out perfectly, you do not need to move them again (unless there is a blank space in one of the two, then shift temporarily).

This is the exact reason I didn't purchase this yet. I love puzzles but I HATE sliding puzzles. It just requires a patience I do not have. If this game had math, match, logic, physics, etc puzzles I would be all over it.

This is the game I unlocked after "beating" The Heist. A $9.99 value supposedly. Now I'm wondering if I ignore this and "beat" The Heist again do I get a different game? hehe

http://www.eetsgame.com/

Anyone get The Heist yet and unlock the vault? I wonder if it's all the same game or each app gets a different game after unlocking? Never heard of this Eets game but it looks fun. I don't really care for it though since I rarely use my pc for games. With a ginormous PS3 and 360 and idevice game backlog, the last thing I'm gonna do is play a pc game. I do enjoy the puzzles in The Heist a lot though (clearly from me already beating it in only 2 hours :razz: )

Supremacy Wars, by Chillingo, dropped FREE from $0.99 for the first time. Never heard about it but it has good rating on iTunes.

From the ashes of a powerful ancient civilization, many new tribes have arisen. Now, a mysterious star has fallen to Earth and a magical secret power from the past has been uncovered. Only one lucky tribe can claim the great secret, and all must contend for it. Someday, they shall name this terrible conflict ... The Supremacy Wars.

FYI, Atari's Greatest Hits got an update last night that adds and improves control schemes! Warlords is now fun like it should be! There's an option to control the paddle on-screen, dragging in any direction you want - and sensitivity for all the control schemes is adjustable, per game! It works well. I haven't tried many yet, but I'm just happy about Warlords! On the other hand there's a bug in downloading the updated versions of the DLC games. You're supposed to be able to download them all at once, but that doesn't work, so you have to download them individually which is a major league pain in the ass. However, somebody suggested deleting the app and reinstalling. Good idea. I'm going to do that.

EDIT: and I can verify that deleting, reinstalling and then "Restoring" your DLC purchases works - I'm downloading all the DLC games now.

The game is universal - you don't need a separate version, so just install it on your iPad and try it. You can restore your DLC purchases to another device at no charge (if they use the same iTunes account). There is, at the least, an additional control scheme option on the iPad for Warlords. You can have it portrait instead of landscape, with "roller" on the left or right. I haven't tried that, but I don't like the roller control for Warlords at all. I like the new touch on screen option *way* better. Probably some other games with additional options - I don't know - but the main thing is the extra screen space allows for better control and without obscuring much of the screen. Warlords is much better on the iPad for that reason.
