I think MatchuM is a really good game that no one seems to have heard of. Snazzy, simple and quite addictive.

FLskydiver says:

Flight Control deserved a spot on the poll, no?

Blahzay says:

My vote goes to Reckless Racing

Amjad says:

I was going to try to make it to the party but so far away from me .tsk. Hope to meet you in the spring uhotgh and also Sarah if she will be in West Virginia too. I am so happy that you will go to Italy how exciting.

Ranch Rush & Ranch Rush 2 HD have me hooked...once I pick one of 'em up, I can't stop!

Jonezed7 says:

Plants and Zombies was an amazing game. It'd sell as many as angry birds if it were 0.99

Adam S says:

@Shaun P. way to promote your own app. It's funny that the developer listed on iTunes is Shaun Pryszlak. Maybe try to list it as free for a bit, if it is good I will recommend it when it's not free. From the screenshots I don't understand the game.

Alli says:

I must have gone blind, cause I don't see a place to vote. Someone please point me in the right direction?

Ayjona says:

Galaxy on Fire 2.
I find it interesting that all game included in this poll are the kind designed for short, casual doses of play, which is kind of the opposite of addictive, non-stop games.
Unfortunately, it is also this game focus that keeps the image of iOS gaming as casual, simplistic and limited alive.

Uh, Words with Friends... never gets old!

Shano says:

Pocket legends. WoW in your pocket

David says:

Doodle Jump all the way. I know this sounds like blasphemy...but I don't understand why Angry Birds is so popular. I bought and played it for a while because of all the good press and didn't have an ounce of fun.

cardfan says:

Words with Friends easily. Galcon, geodefense, fieldrunners, etc. Games like angry birds are fun for a few minutes then quickly get boring.

Art VanDelay says:

Poor Shaun :lol: Busted. :twisted:

Big Mike says:

GoF2 is awesome but my love has to go to Game Dev Story anyone who has a love of the game industry should play this. Win!

Coffeegrower says:

Words With Friends - I've played daily for almost a year. Most others have my attention for a week.

DBox says:

Supe Mega Worm is worth every penny.

Branden Dae says:

Fuzzball! It's been my most addictive multiplayer game since it's release in Nov. 2008 and still going strong IMHO!

Mark Topping says:

I have to go with Fragger......

liveinvictory says:

How's High Noon not an option. Best iPhone app ever. :)

It is really more addictive than any of the given above

Pinny says:

Modern combat 2, especially multiplayer

Martin Demers says:

From all the feedbacks I received, "Blue Block" is really addictive and loved by those who had play with it...
Note: I'm the developer of the "Blue Block" games (iPhone, iPad).

Alli says:

Words With Friends - hands down!
