Best iOS Games in the App Store

If you’re looking for the best games for your iPhone or iPod touch, you can trust the editors at AppCraver to pick out the top apps for addicting gameplay. Our reviewers have been playing their way through the best games in the App Store since the early days of the iOS and have racked up quite a score card over the years. Now that we’ve added iPad games into the mix, it’s harder than ever to tear them away from the screen! Lucky for you, we’ve managed to compile a list of the best iPhone games, most addictive iPod touch diversions and must-have iPad gaming apps. For a good time, call AppCraver!
The best games in the App Store aren’t always the heart-stopping thrill rides or zombie-killing bloodbaths that used to be the mainstay of video games. Casual gamers have flocked to iOS devices like the iPhone and iPod touch changing, in many ways, what makes a game rise to the top of the charts. Many of the best games today feature adorable characters, are easy to learn but hard to master, enjoyable for all ages and, perhaps most importantly, able to be played for a few minutes at a time. (In our experience, you know a game is great when it can be played in two minutes but you continue playing for two hours!)
In order to be known as one of the Best Games for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad—and receive the coveted “Editor’s Pick” title—a game must score 8/10 or better when reviewed by our editors. Enjoy this list of the best iPhone, iTouch and iPad games culled from years of App Store experience and countless hours of gameplay!
