    Infinity Blade II is everything an iOS game should be. It's beautiful, it's addicting, and it's quite possibly the most fun you can have playing an iOS game.

    Snoticles is a very fun iOS game from Adult Swim and you will get hours of fun out of this app. Between the different characters and the difficult puzzles, difficult in the later stages at least, you will be challenged to a fun degree that does not become too annoying.

    Solomon's Boneyard is free. There are in app purchases but they are not necessary. This game is easy to pick up since whenever you leave the game, it will let you resume where you left off.

    This app has great controls and graphics. I like the fact that I get to choose when to fire my weapon rather than having the game do it for me. The visuals are impressive and feature abstract forms of fears like insects and death.

    The controls work surprisingly well and don't get in the way like they do with some similar iPhone games. Overall, including the fact that the game is absolutely free, I'd say that Zenonia 4 is a definite must-buy app.

    It's gorgeous, it's immersive, and most of all, it's an enormous amount of fun. While a multiplayer mode is sadly absent, the achievements and single-player story alone should be more than enough to make this title worth your while.

    Although it relies on in-game purchases to generate revenue, you can still play the game without purchasing credits. If you have even a passing interest in air combat games, MetalStorm is an iPhone app worth downloading.

    One of the better platformers I've come across. It's no Super Mario Bros, but on its own, it's excellent. Very well done graphics with really nice animation, challenging and addictive gameplay, and really entertaining themes of Megaman-style wall jumps with super punches.
