Tried a few of them out and my favorite was Orbash. Was just straightforward in gameplay and felt polished troughout.
Enjoyed both the graphics and the update function. Could easily find this addictive in terms of trying to reach a higher score.
And even more of it gets more work and somehow ends up in a even more evolved form I am sure to be a big fan :D

The "desert obelisk" on is hypnotic and charming. it's a "grow" genre game.

If you like the Knytt games, check out "Pieces" which has a lot of fun personality and a female protagonist.  i especially like how she discovers new abilitities.

Something's wrong... I had to push every button to figure out how to jump. The text isn't showing up properly.

I beat it on easiest with a score of only 9,203. I only had about 50 lives left (which means I died almost 50 times).
