    The Silent Age is definitely my favorite one! But I would add Mutants vs. The Chosen - a classic point and click adventure available previously only for Android and now for iOS as well. It is free, no ads, no in app purchases.

    I like Teeter Bird. Its like the 2nd level of Flappy Bird.

    I like Spelltower, I've been playing that for a while. And letterpress, too, but I find that the lack of different levels make it a little simplistic for me.

    A game not on here that I like is Wordy Bee, new on iOS - it's a free, social word game on a hexagonal board, where you try to take more letter tiles than the opponent. It's also got multiple difficulties!

    I found this addictive game called Crazy Chook for iOS and can't put it down now. Two finger tapping seems to work best and you have to get the feathers to fly higher and get the eggs for your score, and I found that tapping the chicken releases an egg but I can't get past the dog. I know there must be a trick to it so hopefully someone will figure it out and pass on the secret!

    I've been hooked on a card-based game called Donsol. It's a really clever use of playing cards in a fantasy dungeon of sorts.

    There is a game of the store demo loop that I have been trying to find the name of. It appears to be a third person perspective roller blading robot in space. The perspective on the character is like Subway Surfer. You are behind as the character skates along a path of lighted squares. Anyone know the game. I tried several Best Buys and none of the Geeks could tell me it.

    Modern Combat 5 is the best game ever.. keep calm and play MC5

    You guys really need to play Fantasy War Tactics. The story is well driven and has a mass of character development. It starts a little slow at first but it gets very immersive after the first few stages

    Assoluto Racing is a new racing SIM worth trying. It's physics are more realistic than RR3 and yesterday's update adds manual transmission shifting!

    The best one I love is Horizon Chase - World Tour.

    I like the one called "Study! Language Word Game". The title doesn't sound great but it is actually pretty fun. It s like Tetris and Scrabble mixed with some nice colors ^^ but! you can learn a language
    Not fan of the musics tho but I play without sound anyways
