Defender's Quest

Defender's Quest.
Tower Defense game.

Likes: engaging story, easy to understand units and upgrade paths
Dislike: demo

Joran: A nice game, which I rated 5 stars.  But is it worth $6.99 SGD, before a $1 USD discount (via JIS)?

Radical Fishing

Radical Fishing.

Joran: Go as deep as you can, avoiding fishes.  Then, haul up as many as you can, and shoot them for money.
What kind of dumb fishes chase after an empty hook, anyway?

"The best weapon against game cloning is us, the players, who can vote with our wallets, report clones when we spot them, and support indie developers whenever we can."

Star Traders RPG (Lite)

Star Traders RPG (Lite)
aka Free Version, download here.

Likes: Playable with Lite version; lots of playing styles.
Dislikes: Unable to determine a good trade route - all prices seem to the same; steep learning curve; good things on Elite (paid) version; poor documentation on combat; can't frick'in land on a planet as encounters keep coming; the next ship is way too expensive.

Joran: There are many trading games.  This seems the best by far, for a mobile version.  There's a large range of playing styles to choose from: from Mr Jack, to Bounty Hunter, to a Spy (in paid version).  However, it suffers from what I feel are many flaws, which I've listed above.
I've not won a single game on Normal to Challenging difficulties yet.  However, I'm making progress.  It's flawed, but I think I can make it as a bounty hunter.  Just don't offend anyone, till you get permits from most of the factions.
