    You’ll feel more adrenaline trying to catch a lie in a testimony than you ever thought possible in the Phoenix Wright Trilogy, which says a lot about how deeply it can immerse you in its stories.

    X-Com: Enemy Unknown controls perfectly on the iPad. The touch controls for the camera, the soldiers, and choosing commands are all intuitively designed and responsive.

    The gameplay, while not overly complex and slightly less fine-tuned as its console cousin, is more than adequate. And the overall package is really quite solid. Playdead knows this and the price tag reflects that polish. But is Limbo worth it? Well, there certainly are no shortage of beautiful physics puzzle/platformers already in the App Store, but there’s not many that can match Limbo’s overall quality.

    Even if you only get up to three iOS games a year, make sure this is one of them. There are hours upon hours of content to play, plenty of islands to explore and monsters to fight.

    Assassin’s Creed Pirates isn’t some cash in on Assassin’s Creed 4, it is a damn good game that stands right up on its own. It is epic, engaging, and most of all fun. It doesn’t wear out its welcome with bloated mechanics or unnecessary plot. It distills the essence of what we loved about the naval battles and puts it at your fingertips.

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is Rockstar Games’s best port yet.

    Cut The Rope 2 is a great time waster, but in the best way possible.

    No matter what form it’s in, Final Fantasy VI is one of the best games in the history of the medium, with its fast-paced battles, humongous world to explore, fascinating characters and bold, original story.

    1968 captures the mood of the 60’s well and is a quality title that you’ll spend hours enjoying. The controls are decent, it looks great, but more importantly, it is something different and interesting.

    The controls work well, there are lots of achievements, and it has some of the best music of any iOS game. It’s so cheerful you don’t care when someone doesn’t make it to the urinal.

    Scurvy Scallywags is a surprise hit with a great pedigree and even better gameplay.

    Where’s My Mickey? delivers simple yet addictive puzzle gameplay filled with animation sequences that make it more than a worthy download.

    There’s so much to do in Siegecraft TD that you could be occupied with placing towers around grounds for quite some time.

    That rare title that gets better as you progress, crediting dedicated players who know that the best things are yet to come.

    For only a dollar, this game is really a great value and an impressive effort from developers Chia-Yu Chen and Lee-Kuo Chen.

    With beautiful visuals, excellent controls, varying raceways, and near-perfect multiplayer experiences, I wholly recommend Asphalt 8: Airborne to anyone wanting a fun, over-the-top racing title. Who knows what Gameloft will do in the future with Asphalt 9, but they won’t be redlining and blowing their engines anytime soon.

    Few games manage to port from PC to iOS so well as Terraria.

    Call of Duty: Strike Team is an amazing hybrid of two great gaming styles that just works on the mobile format. It may not fully capture the experience one gets from a console Call of Duty game, but it does pretty damn well on its own.

    If you’re looking for a chilled out puzzle experience that has plenty of replay value, look no further than Strata.

    Angry Birds Star Wars II covers all its bases and hits an iOS home run.

    Infinity Blade III is proof that some of the best RPGs can actually be downloaded to a smart phone or better yet, your iPad.

    On the surface, Trouserheart is simple and charming. But at its core, this title offers a distinct sense of challenge atop a fun-inspiring backdrop. He might look like the dad of Sir Arthur from Ghouls ‘N Ghosts (they even have the same underwear!), but I assure you, Trouserheart is all heart and no pants.

    This first rate app is an absolutely gorgeous title, and it’s one of the few physics based puzzlers that moves the heart and the mind.

    By this point in time, I still have trouble trying to decide whether or not Device 6 was a text-based game or a story with video game elements added in, but neither of those choices adequately describe it. In hindsight, I realize now that Device 6 can be easily categorized with one word: art.

    On a pure visceral aspect, Anomaly 2 is just pure, unadulterated fun.

    Bit. Trip. Run! offers you a challenge that endless running games don’t.

    Papa Sangre II has 18 levels for you to tackle, giving you a relatively lengthy and immersive experience unlike anything you might have come across before.

    Rayman Fiesta brings exactly what its name promises: a fiesta! It’s fun, it’s fast, and it’s smartly made, perfect for anyone who wants to do a little high-speed, high-energy gaming on the go.

    It’s an intricate balance with breathing new life into a seemingly perfect franchise, but leave it to Lego to put all of the pieces together.

    Icycle: On Thin Ice is a steal for just $0.99 thanks to its outside the box creative execution and perfectly realized physics quests. It’s a great one two punch of fun that carries much more heat than its moniker suggests.
