Choinka by Spinaker Multimedia - $.99
The goal is to light all candles on Christmas Tree, but when you lit one candle you also lite or damp its neighbors. This puzzle game has 32 levels to keep you busy. I like the graphics on this one, simple with 3D touches. Note this game is only available for the Torch 9800 and Curve 9380 at this time.
