    I hated Spore. Played it to level 4, deleted it, and felt defeated.

    Well, Asphalt is yet another generic racing app from Gameloft. All the Asphalt games are the same, and they all sort of suck. The graphics are all the same (bad 3d models), and the gameplay is all default, nothing innovative.

    X-Plane 9 is my baby on my iPod, easily ranking in on the top 4 most opened. The only flaw is that the textures are sort of non-detailed when you're on the ground and not flying, and that there's only four planes. Planes and better textures are going to be added in the next version, according the developer. And that you can't crash, you just stick on the ground. But hey, it's a flight sim, not an army combat game.

    I'd say go with X-Plane, it's really fun to play, and it's fun to take off / land your airplane. It's with every cent, and great updates are going soon.

    And if you want a good racing game, go with Crash Bandicoot, it's the only decent (yet cartooney) one in my opinion.

    Get hey, go with what you want.

    X-Plane for long range fun.
    Asphalt for a fun 2 day play.
    Spore if you have a lot of patience, and don't get pissed off easily.

    Ooh, that's a hard decision...
    Umm, Asphalt 4 has more of a career while X-Plane doesn't
    However after completing asphalt, you will get bored. X-Plane is just so addicting and reminds me of microsoft simulator

    Get Spore. X-Plane blew flaming chunks. The plane is impossable to control and there are very few instructions. Spore is addicting, entertaining and long. Ive been on level 30 for some time now.
