    Let's pretend that you have been hired by Apple as a gaming enthusiast to select 10 games that will come preinstalled on every iPhone to show off it's capabilities. These may not necessarily be your favorites, but games that will showcase the diversity of iOS gaming and highlight the phone's amazing capabilities.

    My Ten

    Horn
    Sonic CD
    Tilt to Live
    Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders
    Need for Speed Most Wanted
    Bike Baron
    Flight Control
    Angry Birds Star Wars
    Cut the Rope
    Temple Run

    I'd pick the iphone/ipad "definers" if i were to make a list for apple, like Temple Run 2, IB3, Fruit Ninja, Super Hex, The Room, etc... Choices made for marketing reasons.

    But if i want to gift an iphone to a loved one (who can play games decently, and not a total casual) and should put 10 games in it...

    Boson X
    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
    Battleheart Legacy
    Limbo
    Repulze
    Blueprint 3D
    Phoenix HD with all ships unlocked together with the coin tripler (or if that's not possible then Danmaku Unlimited 2)
    Fireball SE
    EPOCH.2
    Anomaly 2

    Interesting thread...hmm...pretending it's for those who don't know iphones and ios gaming, then i put them on Apple's needle with:

    Epic Zen Garden - show off
    Fruit Ninja - swipe
    Tiny Wings - tap
    Tilt to Live - tilt
    World of Goo - physics
    Oceanhorn - adventure
    Anomaly 2 - tactics
    Papa Sangre - listen
    The Room 2 - simply a must have
    Toucharcade - look for yourself ;)

    Edit: Sky Force - a f2p done right, and who doesn't like to shot something once in a while...

    All devices should come with Angry Birds. Its the gateway drug.

    I like Qwertz's mix... Not the picksexactly, but the amount of variety in it as an invitation to iOS gaming for the new users. I also went by with this thought in my picks, but i think Qwertz's choices are easier to get into than mine.
     
  10. Well...let me think

    1)Boson X
    2)Boson X
    3)Boson X
    4)Boson X
    5)Boson X
    6)Super Hexagon
    7)Super Hexagon
    8)Super Hexagon
    9)Super Hexagon
    10)Super Hexagon

    And now to be serious. I've tried to pick games which people could easily get into whilst showing capabilties of games on the device in terms of gameplay, graphics and so on

    1)Boson X
    2)Super Hexagon
    3)Threes
    4)Angry Birds (The Original)
    5)Infinity Blade
    6)Crazy Taxi
    7)Monsters Ate My Condo
    8)Unblock Me
    9)Pocket Planes
    10)Flight Control

    As far as a tilt/roller would everyone agree that Crazy Hedgy was the best example of this or would Tilt to Live be a better example?

    I'd personally pick Knightmare Tower for a game withtilt, but it isnt entirely a tilt game.

    From those 2 options i'd go for Tilt To Live. It represents tilt-games pretty well to get new players to like the control scheme. Only problem for tilt-games is that only a few devs actually got the controls optimized well to feel natural when playing.
