King's Quest III: To Heir Is Human Redux

This game is a fitting tribute that will reward King's Quest fans and expose younger gamers to an adventure classic.

Starfront: Collision for iPhone

Starfront doesn't achieve quite the refinement of a Blizzard title, but as a mobile stand-in for the Starcraft franchise, it's a surprisingly fun and easy-to-pick-up title.

Dead Space for iOS

You are on a quest to investigate what became of the crew of a mining ship... many of whom have transformed into Necromorphs thanks to another pesky alien infestation. The Necromorphs come at you in all shapes and sizes, but they all share one thing in common: they want to kill you and give you a good scare before doing so.

Braveheart for iOS

In this action role-playing game, you play as Richard, a knight sent by King Wilhelm to retrieve the Holy Grail. But the task is not an easy one: to save the day, you’ll have to confront the Great Dragon which guards the prize.

Shadow Guardian for iPhone

Run, jump, climb, shoot, and duck for cover. With Shadow Guardian by Gameloft, the iOS finally gets a swashbuckling-fun action-adventure game.

Jenga HD for iPad

If you’re a Jenga fan, and you don’t have the space to setup the real thing, you’ll find Jenga HD is the next best thing.

Real Racing 2 for iPhone

The original Real Racing set the standard for racing games on iPhone and iPod touch...a very high standard. Real Racing 2 manages to raise the bar even further to bring you possibly the best racing game available for iOS so far.

EVAC for iOS

At first glance you might think Hexage's EVAC is a Pac-Man clone, but it isn't. Instead, think of it as a maze game with some puzzle solving and a little action-adventure thrown in too.

Beast Boxing 3D for iPhone

Beast Boxing 3D is a wonderfully executed boxing game that pits you against the nastiest opponents of Beasthalia.

Treasure Seekers for iPhone

Hidden object games aren't for everyone, however Treasure Seekers is a good example of the genre. There is a Lite version if you want to give it a go, and those with iPads can purchase the separate HD version where finding objects gets easier on the larger screen.

Aqua Pearls for iPhone

If you’ve played through similar games, you can probably skip this one unless you just can’t get enough of the marble shooter. If you’re new to the genre, this is a satisfactory entry with just enough variety to keep you entertained, if not enthralled.

Cut the Rope for iPhone

Cut the Rope should be another huge hit for Chillingo. The simple premise is executed with clean, beautiful graphics, responsive multi-touch controls, awesome physics, and top-notch level design. Om Nom never ate so well.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 for iPhone

In Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, you must once again help Sonic defeat the evil genius Dr. Eggman and save the animals he has enslaved.

Pinch for iPhone

Pinch by Coatsink Software is a refreshingly original puzzle game in which your task is to slide colored discs called "norbs" through mazes to an objective. That sounds easy enough, but the mazes are filled with gates, barriers, and other obstacles requiring you to use your norbs very carefully.

Shibuya for iPhone

While Shibuya is very easy-to-learn, it isn't so easy to put down once you get hooked by its charms.
