2011 has been a great year for iOS games, from Jetpack Joyride to various and sundry versions of Angry Birds. But the list of the best iOS games from this year might surprise, likely because (unless you’re a hardcore iOS gamer) you haven’t heard of some of these games.
Mashable recently published an article about the best iOS games of 2011, and I agree with most of their choices. For example, Jetpack Joyride was #2 on their list, and rightfully so. If you haven’t played Jetpack Joyride yet, you will soon find that it as an addictively fun experience that you won’t let go of for months. Seriously.
Also on Mashable’s list was Infinity Blade 2. People keep heralding this as an amazing game, and I agree that the graphics are pretty nifty. I haven’t played it yet, and there is a reason for it. It seems a little too static to me. Sure it’s beautiful with a compelling storyline but it seems a little too…lead-by-the-nose. You don’t really choose where you go or whom you fight, you just play the game as it wants you to. I could of course be wrong. But I agree the graphics are quite good.
Mashable had other intriguing games on their list, including Tiny Tower, Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP, and Scribblenauts Remix. Scribblenauts and Tiny Tower both look particularly intriguing to me, since I love games that enable you to build and grow as you will, choosing your own path.
