Games for iPhone and iPad
By far the most popular category in the App Store, there is a never-ending parade of great games available for iOS devices. For a list of our favorites, check out AppCraver’s Editor Picks of the Best Games for iPhone and iPad, or read on for news and reviews of the newest game releases for iOS.
Chocolate Shop Frenzy is Pretty Sweet
Emma, the heroine of Chocolate Shop Frenzy, quits her marketing job, gets a small business loan, buys a chocolate shop and goes into business. Her goal is to employ her time-management skills to successfully run the shop for a year — long enough to pay back her loan.
Killer Pool a Challenging, Fun App
The bright, touch-sensitive screen of the iPhone and iPod Touch almost calls out to be filled with a pool table (well, maybe just to me). Perhaps this is why Killer Pool is the latest in a string of pool games that have appeared in the App Store. There is certainly many to choose from — with Midnight Pool being one of the best. Killer Pool bests that app in many respects, yet still has some room to grow.
Biiplane Offers Good Flight; Little Else
Biiplane is a flying app that will test your ability to maneuver your iPhone or iPod Touch through a simplistic obstacle course. It works well as a flight simulator through its use of the accelerometer.
Scrabble, Just Right for Tough Times
Scrabble was invented by Alfred Mosher Butts, an out-of-work architect, during the Great Depression. Hmm, I wonder whether it's coincidence that Electronic Arts has just released its version of the popular word game for the iPhone, or a sign the economy is set to go further down the drain?
A Test Drive with Ferrari GT: Evolution
The last thing you or I need is to spend even more time playing driving games than working, but you must take Gameloft's Ferrari GT: Evolution for a test drive.
I can't put the darn thing down.
Fire Art Garden Not That Explosive
Fire Art Garden is a puzzle offering that puts you in a race against time to launch fireworks. To do so, you must rearrange a rope maze to let a spark makes its way to the launchers. While Fire Art Garden is novel in concept, some unresponsiveness from the touch screen keeps it from being a truly great app.
Tiki Towers: Start Monkeying Around
Tiki Towers is a building game where you use various island objects to create bridges, wheels or towers for your monkeys to climb. Tiki Towers is quickly addictive and perfect for short bursts of play.
Imangi Invites Players to Join in a Multi-Player Word Challenge
Imangi may seem like just another word game a first glance, but Imangi has a twist that makes the game different and challenging. Each row and column is actually a dial that lets you rotate the letters.
Slingshot a Mind-Bending Space Battle
The typical spaceship game has you racing through space and blasting your enemies. Instead, Slingshot relies on one very important weapon: your mind.
The purpose of Slingshot is to launch missiles at the enemy and obliterate them before they get you.
WordsWorth is a New Wrapper for a Familiar Game
WordsWorth is another one of those word games that everyone seems so fond of these days. Similar to other word finding games, Wordsworth involves using letters from the hexagons on the screen and connecting them in a chain-like manner to create a word.
Done Drinking Wobbles onto the iPhone
We knew it wouldn’t take long before the drinking games made their way to our sacred (*insert laugh or bad joke here) iPhone. After all, the burping and flatulence games are already so popular.
Hero of Sparta is an Epic Hack and Slash
Gameloft's new Hero of Sparta is positively stunning in every way: The graphics are beyond belief, the game play is nearly flawless and the sound tracks and effects are exquisite.
There's been a recent influx of games in and around the $9.99 price point and I'm starting to get a feel for which ones are worth paying for.
Holy Wars is a Battle of the Opinions
If a chat about politics, love, the meaning of life is what you’re in the mood for, then Holy Wars just might be the app for you. Download the app and you’re instantly plugged into a virtual world filled with questions on everything from human cloning to euthanasia.
Raindrop Will Have You Tipping and Tilting
Raindrop offers some simple fun that will have you tilting your iPhone or iPod Touch back and forth in an effort to keep yourself safe in the clouds.
The "you" is a tiny raindrop, which must maneuver around an increasing flow of clouds to keep falling through the sky.
The Number 14 Adds up to Good Times
I have been writing a bit about word games, that seems to be a popular thing for the iPhone at the moment, however Number 14 brings a number game to the iPhone. This number game is a very simple game that requires you to take the 4 numbers that are given and add, minus, multiply, or divide them in any sequence in order to end on the number 14.
