Top iPhone Games of All Time
Jumping head first into the App Store without much of an idea what to look for can be a bit like Scrooge McDuck leaping off the diving board into his fortune. There’s so many great games, but how do you know which are the real gems?
Unless the game you’re looking for has been in the Top 20 ever since it launched, it’s nearly impossible to find. Apple doesn’t do a great job of helping users find what they’re looking for on the marketplace, that’s why we’ve put together a list of the absolute best in touchy, tilty and slidey games that the mobile space has to offer.
From Temple Running or Candy Crushing, there’ll be something here for you to enjoy. For new iPhone owners, the games on this list are an absolute must, and for the long-serving Apple owners, maybe there’s a classic here that you missed along the way.
