Top 10 iPhone Games

Doodle Jump

10. Doodle Jump

However sophisticated games may have become these days, sometimes it’s the simplest ones which are the best. Such as Doodle Jump, a cartoonish adventure in which a doodle scribbled on an exercise book has to jump up a series of platforms without falling. That’s it really. But it’s brilliant. We defy you to put it down once you’ve started playing.

Grand Theft Auto - China Wars

9. Grand Theft Auto: China Wars

When I saw that Grand Theft Auto: China Wars would be coming out for the iPhone, I was in awe. I became addicted to the DS version of the game and now that I no longer had my DS, I had a craving to have the game on my iPhone. The gameplay and graphics are just amazing, it’s an incredible direct port from the DS and it’s quite a smooth frame-rate. This game leaves me entertained for hours and sometimes my girlfriend will steal my iPhone just to play on it.

Pac-Man - Championship Edition

8. Pac-Man: Championship Edition

Who can resist the power of Pac-Man on an iPhone? The classic arcade quarter muncher returns to inflict its addictive fun on an unsuspecting public. The controls are tight, the graphics are bright, and the fun is out of sight! Created for iPhone by original programmer Tōru Iwatani, so you know it’s good. Now, get this and start gobbling!

Spider - The Secret of Bryce Manor

7. Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor

This clever little game places the player in the role of a spider that make large jumps, cross barriers, and weave silken webs in intricate geometric patterns. Capture meals and manage your silk levels as you try to complete the nearly thirty eye-popping levels of the game. If you don’t have this one, you need to sell your iPhone. It’s that good!

Cut The Rope

6. Cut The Rope

Speaking of simple games, this one might well drive you mad – but its simplicity is its appeal. All you have to do is cut a series of ropes in order to feed candy to a cute monster. Sounds simple, right? Well be warned, it’s not nearly as easy as it looks.

Tetris

5. Tetris

There was a time when the world couldn’t stop playing Tetris – but these days it’s still around and it’s still as good as ever. The iPhone version doesn’t really do anything different from previous incarnations – but trying to make lines out of those falling blocks is still a shamelessly compulsive pastime.

Assassin's Creed - Altair Chronicles

4. Assassin’s Creed: Altair Chronicles

Usually, I’m very wary about mobile ports of popular games. However, Assassin’s Creed: Altair Chronicles is a very entertaining and attractive game. The graphics are amazing and it really wouldn’t cross your mind that you are playing it on an iPhone. Although, the gameplay is no way near its console platform version, the replay value makes this game worth the app download. You would be crazy not to try Assassin’s Creed for the iPhone.

Flight Control

3. Flight Control

What I adore about Flight Control is the freedom that it gives you by letting you draw your own flight path. At first, it leads you into a false sense of security; making you think that it’s a fairly easy game but as the levels progress it gets extremely harder to control your plane and becomes extremely addictive. My friend has completed all of the levels with record time; unfortunately I am still struggling on the Navy level.

Angry Birds

2. Angry Birds

If you only ever get one game for your iPhone then make it this one. Angry Birds – in which you have to fire birds out of catapults in order to exact revenge on green pigs who have stolen their eggs – has become an instant classic. And why? Well because it’s fast-moving, entertaining and just so damned playable.

Tiny Wings

1. Tiny Wings

Speaking of simple games, this one might well drive you mad – but its simplicity is its appeal. All you have to do is cut a series of ropes in order to feed candy to a cute monster. Sounds simple, right? Well be warned, it’s not nearly as easy as it looks.
