Category Archives: Best iPad Games

This week is lead by a surprisingly good game that I never would've expected to be as great as it turned out to be if I hadn't tried it. Dodo Master has a weird name and an icon that doesn't give you any idea what the game is about... But, that seems to be the way that most of the true App Store gems work out: Totally awesome games that you never expect...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 8/22/14 - 'Hearthstone' Curse of Naxxramas, ' Catchup', 'Rules!' and 'Star Realms'

We're going strong this week with some absolutely amazing games that you need to download and play over the weekend if you don't already have them on your device. This list has three new games, and with the final wing of the Hearthstone expansion unlocked, it made sense to sit down and write a review for it, even if all the people who are interested already have it...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 8/15/14 - 'Joe Dever's Lone Wolf', 'Phoenix Wright', and 'Sentinel 4'

Well this is kind of awkward. Last week when we came up with the idea of doing these roundups weekly, no one really threw out the idea of what happens when we don't have any really high review scores that week. This week, the highest score we gave our was four stars, so, those are our best games of the week. It's a little weird, I guess, but, if there's one word I'd use to describe the App Store in general it'd probably be "Weird."..

Best iPhone and iPad Games of the Week: 8/8/14 - 'Dragon Quest IV' and 'Astro Duel'

We've been doing the monthly best game roundups for quite a while, where we pile together all the 5 and 4.5 star games in to one massive post. I figured it's 2014, so why not try something new and do these kind of roundups weekly instead of monthly. The comments section for the monthly posts are usually a bit of a mess with people discussing so many games, so maybe by doing more of that style of article focused on fewer games will result in a better discussion? Maybe?..

Best iPhone and iPad Games of July 2014

It's the first of August, and it's a perfect time to look back at some of the absolutely amazing games that were released in July. Unbelievably great ports, totally original games no one expected, and more. These are the sorts of things that make being an iOS gamer awesome...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of April 2014

If there was one word to sum up the games we reviewed in April it'd just be wow. Seven five star games in all, and I'd say each one is an absolute must have. Additionally, I think it's pretty safe to say the slow start to 2014 is now officially over...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of March 2014

April is shaping up to be an amazing month for iOS gaming, but March was really awesome and filled with games we'd been anticipating forever as well as a few surprises. March was host to GDC, so things sort of slowed down during that time, but, whatever. There are still were ton of great games to check out regardless...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of February 2014

Even though February is the shortest month of the year, it sure was home to some big iOS game releases. Final Fantasy VI after what feels like years of waiting, an Eliss re-release and tons more were among our best rated games of the month. Again, these are not necessarily games that were released in February, but rather, merely the best games we reviewed in February. Also, our scoring system isn't representative of any traditional metric where you combine scores of graphics, sound, fun-factor, replayability, and other elements. Rather, we just rate games based on how much we recommend you download them...

We're turning over the first page of our Angry Birds 2014 Calendar (I actually had the 2013 iteration of this!) to the month of February, which means it's time to round up all the reviews we posted in January. Again, these are not necessarily games that were released in January, but rather, merely the best games we reviewed in January. Also, our scoring system isn't representative of any traditional measure like graphics, sound, fun-factor, replayability, or anything like that. Rather, we just rate games based on how much we recommend you download them...

Best iPhone and iPad Games of 2013

Yesterday we announced that Ridiculous Fishing [$2.99] scored our Game of the Year pick, but there's loads of great games where that came from. Last year we broke out all of these games into multiple posts spanning all sorts of genres, even weird ones...

Best Free iPhone and iPad Games of 2013

If you haven't noticed, free to play games have hit critical mass on the App Store. There's definitely a load of bad ones that put monetization first while gameplay takes the back seat, but that certainly isn't the case for all of them...

TouchArcade Game of the Year 2013: 'Ridiculous Fishing'

2013 is coming to a close, and this has been a monumental year for iOS gamers. We got iOS 7, redesigned iPads, finally a Retina Display on the iPad mini, faster iPhones, Apple-blessed physical controllers, and tons more. As of today, the App Store has had 83,880 games released this year, and of those games we reviewed 521 of them. Now, we distill that down further to a single game of the year, one of 83,880...

Ridiculous Fishing [$2.99], a game surrounded with cloning drama, got a much-deserved nod from Apple today in the form of the iPhone Game of the Year nomination as part of their Best of 2013 feature. If for some insane reason you still haven't downloaded Ridiculous Fishing, I'm not sure the evidence to do so could get any stronger. We gave it five stars in our review, and it's still high on the list of my personal favorite iPhone games, even months after its release...

Here's Some of The Best Games For Your New iPad Air

Today is the day, the iPad Air is upon us. Just like all the early reviews have said, initial reactions on the iPad Air seem to be filled with everyone incredibly happy with the device. The speed increase, the weight reduction, and the smaller footprint all combine to make for a really awesome improvement over the iPad 4... A device which arguably didn't even need that much improving...

Best iOS Games - August 2013: 'Asphalt 8', 'Mikey Hooks', and 'Plants vs. Zombies 2'

Hey everybody, here's the best games we reviewed in the month of August. Keep in mind you can view all of our 5 star and 4.5 star games via category sorting. Similarly, you can see all of these "best of" roundups by clicking the Best iPhone Games category. You'll find tons of good stuff in there, especially if you dig back into the archives a bit...
