Design is not only websites, apps, logos, etc... Design is part of games too so I want to make a list about best iOS Games based on best graphics and other list based on gameplay and duration. So, what are your Top 5 games on iOS?
Monument Valley https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/monument-valley/id728293409?mt=8
Thomas was alone https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/thomas-was-alone/id849095637?mt=8
I played Thomas Was Alone on my mac (it was realeased to desktops first).
Such a brilliant game. I've played many games, but none as enchanting as this. Very well written, wonderful gameplay, great visual style.
In the end, I was familiar with all different characters (I need to say they are all just rectangles) and longed and suffered with them.
One of my favourites.
I just love Rymdkapsel so much.
Super Hexagon is my all time favorite iOS game ever.
I really love this game. Anyone who has ever seen me play it immediately "nopes", however.
Yes! Super Hexagon is one I come back to all the time. Takes a little while to get the hang of, but once you've got the rhythm it's very addictive. So easy to have just one more go…
Super addicting fun. Very similar to 2048 (Threes! came first, note) but with more refined gameplay and visuals.
Great strategy/RPG roguelike.
+1 to Threes. (see what I did there… bit of a stretch…)
I love this game so much. The watercolour style is so pretty.
Frenzic is one of my favorite iOS games of all time too.
Collision Effect was also great.
Most of mine have already been mentioned, but I really liked Hundreds.
I've become pretty addicted to Pocket Mine
+1 for Ridiculous Fishing!
Eh… It's stunning and worth a download but I would not call this one of the best games on iOS.
Second the mention of VVVVVV - one of my all time favourites.
Froggy went a-courtin'. https://itunes.apple.com/ie/app/froggy-went-a-courtin/id916846896?mt=8
Just got it today. Very simple one-finger sorta thing. Folksy & charming.
Two Dots is great — I love the gameplay, sound design, artwork, that I can play for 35 seconds then stop when I just want a tiny tiny break from work, ability to progress without microtransactions.
I like Tiny Thief as well when I have some downtime. Adventure, stealth, comical humor & graphics.
Kim Kardashian Hollywood is undeniably satisfying and addictive. I racked up a loooot of hours in the few weeks I played that!
-Clash of Clans (I know, sorry)
Thanks for all the other recs, guys!
Based off of overall experience and graphics:
Monument valley The Room Year Walk Sword and Sworcery Two Dots Republique
Wide sky has very smooth and fun animations although it's hard to play.
Groove Coaster Zero https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/groove-coaster-zero/id549050409?mt=8
A lot of my favorites have already been mentioned. I'll add few more great ones: Device 9 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/device-6/id680366065?mt=8 15 coins https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/15-coins/id812850082?mt=8 Tengami https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tengami/id794960248?mt=8
Not the prettiest, but damn fun. Best with 3-4 people.
SPACE TEAAAAAAAM !
Aside from the others already mentioned (Monument Valley et al.), check out Solarmax 2.
Threes! +1 Monument Valley +1 OLO +1
My contribution: Radiant Defense
A slightly different take on the tower defence genre.
Pretty difficult at times, but stick with it!
Games chosen by fellow Designers! Amazing news :D
Robot Unicorn Attack 2 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/robot-unicorn-attack-2/id541672969?mt=8
I'm quite fond of Monument Valley and Super Crate Box, but have mostly been playing Need for Speed, Sonic Racing Transformed and Asphalt 8 recently.
Drei is one of the best developed games! http://etter.co/drei/
Game Dev Story and Kairosoft's game.
Oh, and also:
Device 6, Blackbar, Hearthstone, Angry Birds Stella, MageGauntlet, Aqueduct, Pulse, Corpse Craft
And also x-platform games like Broken Age, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes
+1 hitman GO
A few which haven't yet been mentioned:
Wayward Souls is a great dungeon crawler with great pixel art and a forboding atmosphere.
Colorbind is a beautiful puzzle game. I don't know if it will have been updated for Retina and/or iPhone 5 screens, but I very much hope it has.
My current favorite Game, in all kinds of ways is FTL: Faster Than Light. It has a great story, beautiful UI and Graphics and an intense battle system.
iOS Games I've been most satisfied with (as former lead designer for words with friends if that means anything):
Little Things, Osmos, Plants vs Zombies, Mini gore, RIDICULOUS FISHING!!!
Special mention to dots, monument valley, and another one I saw already listed but forgot ¯_(ツ)_/¯
