    Pocket Planes addresses the main concerns I had with Tiny Tower in the long-term: that there wasn't much of a point to the game, and little goal to attain. Pocket Planes is much more involved, with concrete goals, but still keeps the principles that make NimbleBit's social titles so fun and addictive. Even haters of 'social' games need to give this a shot.

    Typeshift is an incredible package because of how sleek its puzzle formula is. It's not a mechanically dense game, and its puzzles are simple variants on word games that have come before it. That said, the way these puzzles are designed and presented makes Typeshift not only a fantastic word game, but the only word game I ever want to play.

    Taken as a whole, Ticket to Ride represents one of the very best (if not THE best) translations of a board game to the iPad. Every element works and works well, and the game is seriously engaging and addictive.

    No matter how much people gripe about the details though, there is no denying that Aralon is the most impressive RPG to ever hit the App Store. There are others with better stories, but Aralon is the only one that forces you to live and breathe in its fantasy world.

    Mikey Hooks takes the casual speedrun formula of Mikey Shorts, and adds grappling hooks for more addictive speedrun fun. Speedfun!

    Ridiculous Fishing, Vlambeer's fishing (with guns!) game has been a long time in the works thanks to drama over a clone, but it's finally here and it's spectacular.

    Neon Shadow hits the mark at almost every turn, providing players with the authentic space-themed FPS experience they have probably been waiting for.

    Bad Piggies is pretty darned flawless, when I think about it.

    Sunless Sea is a fascinating game because of its genre-blending and evocative writing and setting. It's also a game that provides both the freedom to let players do what they want and the structure to give players concrete goals to work toward, with both paths feeling satisfying even after several playthroughs of the game. It's truly a remarkable game. Go play it.

    Gameloft did just right with Let's Golf! 2. They gave the game more international flavor, more colorful characters, and improved game play, all while maintaining everything that made the first Let's Golf! so great. Let's Golf! 2 is an amazing game that any fan of casual sports games should pick up.

    The Descent's mix of visually-enthralling environments and art-style, combined with its hidden object, mystery-driven gameplay, make for a truly enjoyable experience.

    Reckless Racing 2 improves on all of the original game's features and adds several more goodies such as career mode and car customization. This all combines to make it the best "rubbin's racin'" game on the App Store.

    On its face, Flipping Legend is a pretty light game that doesn't look like it has much to it. Once you get your hands on it though, the game ends up feeling like a lot more than that. It's got a great core mechanic, a solid amount of variety, and some amazing detail work. Flipping Legend may be an arcade-style phone game, but it is a truly excellent one of those.

    Robot Unicorn Attack 2 takes everything that was great about the original and just adds more depth to it to make it a tremendous experience.

    A Normal Lost Phone may not be the longest or most mechanically dense game out there, but I enjoyed every moment I spent with it. It's writing and story are so well presented that your phone snooping feels incredibly real and personal. It's a level of intimacy that most other video games completely fail to capture, which just goes to show how special A Normal Lost Phone is.

    This World of Warcraft CCG spin-off is easy to pick up, almost impossible to put down, and most amazingly of all, totally free. Consider this your only warning.

    Espgaluda II is a beautiful, well-developed port for the iPhone and the best 2D vertical shooter I've ever played. It's breathed new life into a stale, complacent genre and raised the bar for other 2D scrolling shooter developers.

    Year Walk is a fantastic experience that’s going to stick with me for a while. It’s haunting, mysterious, and is a must-play for those willing to stomach the dark tale it weaves. This is Simogo’s magnum opus.

    This game is truly fascinating to me: it does so much in its minimalism, comfortable to let the player learn and figure out what it offers. It's a triumph of game design. Play this.

    Top to bottom, Motorsport Manager Mobile 2 is a better than the great game that came before it. It's elegant, smart, difficult, and supremely satisfying, regardless of whether or not you are a racing enthusiast. It is certainly the leader of the pack when it comes to management sims on mobile. Don't let this one pass you by.

    I'm absolutely hooked to Knights of the Round Cable. It's a cheap pun, and I'm going to use it! Few games pull me in like this, and find me so engrossed that I lose track of time. I absolutely love this game.
