Looking for some awesome games to play on your iOS device? then look no further! Here are 9 amazing games for you to enjoy!
Goblin Sword is quite possibly the best platformer that I have ever played. Period. The controls on are customizable and make for a near perfect playing experience. There are both 24 weapons and relics to collect as well as 3 crystals and chests on every level. Because of this it has a high replay value. even after struggling to beat every level and boss. ($1.99)
Muffin Knight is another excellent platformer of sorts made by Angry Mob Games. It is one of those titles where you can’t help but to keep playing until you unlock all the characters and content. With gorgeous 2.5D graphics, awesome courses, and the creative characters will be sure to keep you busy for hours on end. ($0.99)
The Lifeline games brought back a unique genre and put their own creative twist on it. Behold, the text-based adventure that is Lifeline. I was hesitant to buy this game at first, but I ended up getting the 3 game bundle that came at a discounted price. “Go big or go home” as they say. I definitely did not regret my purchase. The moment I started the story I was hooked. I felt like I was actually there helping the protagonist, a quirky student named Taylor. Your decisions will all play a role as you try to keep Taylor alive on an unknown planet. With real-time notifications and a compatible Apple watch app, this science-fiction adventure will leave you wanting more of this funny and exciting game. ($3.99 bundle)
Mage Gauntlet follows a girl named Lexie, a non magical being in a world of wizards and witches who is on a special quest to save the world. It is a perfect combination of RPG and beat-em up style, resulting in a very cool game. You can definitely see the Legend of Zelda and Secret of Mana influence in the gameplay. It has 84 levels, 86 achievements, 19 pets that help you along the way, and over 100 hats and clothing so you can customize Lexie’s appearance. The funny dialogue and entertaining characters make for a great adventure. Stop reading this review and go download this gem of a game ($2.99)
Monument Valley is one of my favorite puzzle games on my iPad. It is a very polished game with intriguing levels and mechanics. The music is fantastic and the art style really shows what the retina display can do. The gameplay is like that of Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for Wii U. Although the content may seem short to some, there is also one in-app purchase titled “Forgotten Shores” that adds a few more trickier levels. It’s a solid puzzler to pull out during a coffee break. ($3.99)
Organ Trail: Director’s Cut
Organ Trail could be one of the most unique games to ever come to the app store. You and your 4 friends (you can pick all the names) go on a cross-country journey to escape the zombie apocalypse. In order to survive you must scavenge for food, do jobs for others, fend of bandits, and of course, fight zombies. With a simple pixel design, the creators got their influence from the 1977 Apple 2 computer. This game can be as challenging as you make it, but it is definitely worth the price. ($2.99)
Slayin is a 2D endless action RPG that will test even the most skilled players. The controls of this game are super simple and easy to get the hang of. Ironically enough, I initially downloaded this game when it first released and sadly deleted it 10 minutes later due to bad controls and difficult mechanics. However, I decided to give it another chance a few months back and it was updated to version 2.0, where all of my control issues were fixed. With a seemingly endless amount of monsters and weapons, you will need to battle your way through the levels with one of six unlockable characters. Each one has a specific ability that you must use to your advantage when fending off waves of enemies. This game is great for a quick retro fix during the day. ($0.99)
What do you get when you add an RPG, dungeon crawler, and sugary drinks together? The answer is Soda Dungeon; one of the best games on the app store. Band together heroes of all kinds and fight hundreds of monsters and bosses that await you in the dungeon. With awesome retro graphics and gameplay, this makes for an all around great experience on your mobile device. I really enjoyed this game and it is definitely worth the play. Plus it’s FREE! There are in-app purchases but you can unlock everything just by playing the game.

Don’t Starve: Pocket Edition
When I first downloaded this game I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as my first world loaded I knew I was in for an awesome experience. Like a lot of newbie Don’t Starve players, I died the first night from not having a fire in time. I had very little idea as to what I should and shouldn’t do as far as collecting things and running into animals. As of now I have died 7 times. 3 of those times I didn’t even make it past day 1. Some of these include death by Darkness, Pig Man, Tallbird, Killer Bee, Overheating, and Clockwork Bishop. After hours of gameplay and many failed attempts, I finally got the hang on it. I am on day 22 at the start of Summer, and it is not getting any easier. Most importantly, the exploration, customization, and all around feel of this game keeps me coming back. There is so much to do and figure out on my own that makes me feel accomplished when I return to my camp every night. The only downside to this game is that the controls can be difficult to get used to. I have had a few times where I did something I didn’t mean to do. For example I once burned down my entire camp while trying to light my fire. If you’re stuck, there are walk-throughs and tutorials you can find on YouTube that will help you immensely, although it is very fun to discover things for yourself. I hope that in future updates they will add the Shipwrecked and Don’t Starve Together DLC. (Reign of Giants is already included) Best of all, it has a built-in screen recorder so you can share your experience with others. This game is amazing and definitely a 10/10 in my book. It is definitely worth the play. ($4.99)
