iPhone apps recommendation thread

Simply share with us the gaming related apps you would recommend to your forum chums!
To start things off:
Yep, you've guessed it, this is the app version of the famous boardgame. Now I haven't actually played this but had to mention it because I've only just noticed it in the app shop!
Battle for Wesnoth
this is a turn by turn fantasy wargame with rpg style campaigns and character development for the main characters in the game. Could keep you busy for hours this could... Just ask Mrs Jomster!!!

Words with Friends (Free or Paid)
It's like scrabble but better. Easier to get high scoring combinations. Like using the 10 point Q on a triple letter and also getting triple word with a 4 letter word. It often makes your opponent use other, more common 4-letter words. A few rpgmp3-ers already play.
Settlers of Catan ($4.99)
I've never played Carcassone but I have played Settlers so I'd recommend this one, though I haven't bought it yet.
I also have Dicenomicon, though I haven't used it lately. Great graphics and physics, and very customizable. Great for exploding dice, npc stat generation, and several other things. A bit pricey now, glad I got it before they raised the price.

I bought that one to take on holiday. Very nice. Particularly enjoyable taking my Roman soldiers into battle with the Mayans!
I'd recommend the Settlers app: there's a chap on my bus who sits in front of me, playing it on his iPhone.
I spend a lot of time peering over his shoulder enviously.

For specific rpg ones have a look here
Blimey! That's an impressive list!
Sword of Fargoal
This retro classic was kindly recommended by Smithmeg. You are the brave dungeoneer striving to find the famed Sword of Fargoal. Lots of fun monsters, treasure, traps and spells all wrapped up in 80s gameplay. This is one of those games which play well and the way they have pulled it off keeps you coming back for more. It's also straight forward to play and thus well suited to the daily commute! "Lethal" level is however proving a little tricky so far!

Quite a nice combat helicopter game. It's got the option of using tilt control for flying if you don't mind everyone else on the train staring at you. I had to turn this off as I'm clearly too old for tilt control and promptly proceeded to crash a lot!
Anyway, it's 59 pence! Yep. 59 pence! Crazy money and worth a look I say!
