The original pioneer of the running adventure games, Temple Run 1 & Temple 2 still offer nonstop action for your fingers and are go-to games for killing time. The fact that graphics have been improved dramatically along with the controls and addition of more levels, this runner will stay in running for multiple awards.
5. Where’s My Water
Though a genuine physics based puzzle game, it is so well thought out and brilliantly put together that little kids get the hang of it in just a while. But don’t mistake its intuitive design for a dull gaming experience; it offers 500 stages, each one posing a unique challenge like floating steam, poison water and dirt-eating acid water. This will get you hooked and begging for more.
6. Cut The Rope
Simplistic yet effective layout and beautifully enticing character design keep you hooked to your iPhone, feeding adorable OM Nom for hours and hours. You simply have to feed the four-toothed bundle of cuteness by swiping action to cut candies at the right time in the right order. Though it gets challenging, but never enough to make you leave and walk away. That’s what we call brilliant execution!
7. Rayman Jungle Run
Another auto runner, yet so different. Auto runners are a dime a dozen, but every now and then we step on something brilliant like this UBISOFT’s Rayman. With silky smooth animations, fast pace and multiple maneuvers, Rayman Jungle Run offers one of the most refined and polished running experience on iOS. For more auto action, Juegos Friv with its amazing flash based games won’t disappoint either.
A treat for MOBA lovers, this award winning online multiplayer number will suck you in with its drop dead gorgeous characters and innovative controls. For gamers whining about lackluster online multiplayers in App Store, Vainglory is the answer.
9. Ridiculous Fishing
Well, it’s a simple fishing game, at least it starts as one, where you tilt your phone/device to control the depth of fishing string. Once you get the fish, shoot them up with grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. Bonkers totally bonkers, and that’s exactly why it’s so fun.
