It's official: there are too many iOS games. It's harder than ever to spot the great ones among all the junk, so we've done the hard work for you and collected the classics for this list. Every game here is playable on both iPad and iPhone (plus iPod touch, naturally), although some are split into device-specific versions. Read on and enjoy!
In Device 6, a new spy-themed interactive fiction game from Simogo (Year Walk, Beat Sneak Bandit), text is used with verve and clarity, as sharp prose maps out protagonist Anna’s journey around a mysterious island. It’s not just that Device 6 is text-based – it’s that the text dances around the iPhone or iPad screen. As Anna turns down a hallway, the words also bank at a hard right angle; when she climbs a spiral staircase, her story and your device screen spin with her.
Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. Surreal indie thriller Device 6 from Simogo is a major standout this week, along with the free-to-play Batman: Arkham Origins, while CSR Classics and Dungeons & Dragons: Arena at War are other significant releases available now on the App Store.
