Sketch Nation Shooter - itunes.apple.com/us/app/sketch-nation-shooter/id363785930?mt=8

Yes, it's a shooter. Remember "Asteroids" of old? It's similar. The fun and creative thing about this is that you get to make / create your own space ships and aliens.

If the boys are going to play shooters anyway, why not something that's creative as well? :)

Max and the Magic Marker - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/max-magic-marker-for-ipad/id413704441?mt=8

This one is excellent. Great graphics, creativity & logical thinking, a must. As Max, you are drawing things with your magic market that "come to life" - great use of physics & gravity - i.e. drawing a see-saw, standing on one end, drawing a ball that falls on it so you are sent shooting up to the level you need to get to. A sailboat to cross water, etc. etc.

99 cents for iPhone, $2.99 for iPad.

An oldie but goody, Issac Newton's Gravity - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/isaac-newtons-gravity-hd/id371490360?mt=8 (It's free? Really?

Logic puzzle game, using gravity. You have levels, a ball or balls and some other objects. The goal is to depress a large red button somewhere on the screen. The trick is that it doesn't have to be done with the ball. :D

Levels increase in difficulty so this one can scale upwards, and there is a "create your own levels" mode.

Isaac Newton's Gravity is great fun - my son played all the levels, and now enjoys making new puzzles to confound Daddy.

Another fun game is Where's My Water: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.disney.WMW

Another game where my puzzle solver son irritates Daddy by finishing all the levels whereas I'm stuck (and won't admit it to him).
