The greatest part about owning an iPhone is its seemingly easy usability, its remarkable software, its outstanding exterior finish, and a state-of-the-art camera that lets your capture the world as it is. Another aspect of owning the world’s fastest smartphone is that it offers a rather promising gaming experience. Everyone knows that the best and top apps are introduced on Apple devices first and even though some of them are not free, they do have a “lite” version.

We understand that the Apple store is flooded with games of all sorts and not all are worth downloading on your phone. This is the reason we have compiled a list of the best games to have on an iPhone in terms of ratings, reviews, popularity, and personal preference. Not all games are for all people given their type. Some might be into puzzles and occasional card games whilst others enjoy an entertaining car race or a virtual dress-up experience. This article is for every smartphone game lover!

Before we get to the games, it is important to mention that some of the following apps require high-speed internet service. Therefore, if your current provider is troubling you, we suggest you cancel your subscription and sign up for wave broadband as it comes with incredible speeds and data upgrade options, allowing you to play as many games as you like. With that said, let us discuss the top 7 gaming apps for iOS users.

The Original Tetris

We all grew up hurdling blocks on top of each other whether it was on our phones or the television’s gaming option. Tetris is a universally loved game by both adults and kids alike. It offers an adrenaline-rush experience, makes one think fast, make quick decisions, and challenge a friend or family member for fun. One cannot outgrow a fun game such as Tetris. The iPhone’s original version is a paid-for app but is a hundred percent worth the purchase and is super addictive! Not to mention – the levels are endless!

Quiz Up

This game is for all quiz-loving people who love enhancing their knowledge. The app is free but for no ads to pop up on your screen, you can upgrade to the paid version. Quiz Up has quizzes on every topic (literally!) known to humanity; from USA’s presidents and history lessons to the show F.R.I.E.N.D.S and general knowledge questions. The most fun part is that you can play with online rivals and friends and earn badges as you move up levels. You can excel in a certain topic and become the champion of your country or even the world! How cool is that?

It is even included in the Editor’s Choice on the App store!

World of Goo

This rather artistic game with amazing visuals offers such a memorable experience! The game makes you join blobs of goo to make a web and then move on to the next challenge. The entire design is top-notch and the game is a great way to de-stress after a long day at work. We personally love this game as the developer has put so much effort and creativity into it and we just cannot get enough of it! This game is not free but let us tell you, it is worth the investment!

We all want one of those games on our phones that require little to no thinking, do not have a progress sheet and can be played at anytime and anywhere without a care in the world? Well, ZigZag is one such game that you can play one-handedly even. The simple task of keeping the ball from falling off the zigzag road could not be more fun!

Where’s My Water?

This game is a Disney original and we just cannot say no to Disney! The game follows an animated alligator’s adventure at bath time. The purpose of the game is to help the alligator get water to bathe. Poking the alligator makes it sad, how adorable are the little details? The game is well thought of and a favorite amongst many!

Hill Climb

You might be a pro at car-driving games but can you drive this jeep on Hill Climb that is facing a constant uphill battle? That is right – you have to drive fast or else it will run out of fuel but not too fast, because you might flip and die! Hill Climb is an entertaining game for all game lovers. The most exciting part for us is to gain coins along the way to upgrade the car and make our overall driving experience better. In addition, we can unlock different places across the world for our drives!
