I picked up Everyday Genius: Square Logic for that cheap price.  Holy shit, what a great game!  I've already wasted a lot of time.  It's like a cross between sudoku and a logic puzzle.  Basically, numbers don't repeat in columns or rows and then different blocked off groups of squares have different rules (must all be odd, must add up to 9, must equal 4 [those are the gimmes]), and you use deduction to figure out what goes where.  Really fun.

I can also vouch for 4 Elements.  Nice production values and a relatively easy and satisfying puzzle game.

If anyone is familiar with KenKen, Everyday Genius : Square Logic is a variation of it.  It's nice to see a well-done PC version, as KenKen is my favorite Japanese logic puzzle.  Sudoku is okay, but it gets repetitive quickly.  Both KenKen and Kakuro use similar rules as Sudoku, but they have much better variety.

You know, I've played a lot of these Japanese puzzles.  I thought I'd played KenKen, but clearly I haven't because I would say Square Logic basically is KenKen.

Delving Deeper is on sale for only 10% off, but I have to say the game is pretty fun.  Doesn't run full screen, but it is a nice mix of tile laying, treasure gathering, monster fighting, strategy game.  Not sure if there is a demo, but I'm happy I bought it.

It starts out as KenKen, but they add new elements that aren't in KenKen, such as even/odd areas, greater than or less than puzzles (like Futoshiki), etc.
