Who would’ve guessed that a game about catching falling sushi would be so powerfully fun and exciting? Sushi Boy’s simple approach makes it a perfect fit on both iPhone and iPad, letting you tilt your device to make the titular boy run around the screen, snatching each delicious bit of sushi before it smacks the ground. Along the way, you’ll have to avoid hazards like boots and metal hooks, and as you play more, you’ll be able to unlock higher difficulty levels and numerous customization aspects, like hats and backgrounds.
Looking and feeling like real pinball, Pinball HD is perfectly suited for the iPhone and iPad, with pitch-perfect touch controls that let you tap the left or right side of the screen to activate each respective set of flippers.

The game includes three tables to choose from: a table modeled after the Wild West, a jungle table with a gorilla named “Big Kong,” and an impressive underwater table. At a rock-bottom price, Pinball HD is a must-have for enthusiasts of the silver ball.

Still, with 12 gun types and 144 stages for a buck, it’s a darn good deal, or you can download the free ad-supported version.

Chaos Rings comes from the vaunted publisher behind console role-playing greats Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, and this iPhone and iPad exclusive crams the same animation, engrossing storyline, and game mechanics of Square Enix’s hits into a smaller form factor. In Chaos Rings, you’ll choose a two-person team and guide them around the perilous dungeons with the intuitive touch-anywhere joystick controls, and the game is fairly easy for newcomers to the RPG genre, though be sure to save often so you don’t lose your progress after a tough battle!
