Flow Free

In Flow Free, you simply have to connect matching coloured dots with pipes to make a “flow” – without any pipes actually crossing. You need to pair all colours, and cover the entire board, to solve each puzzle.. It seems simple at first, but it can be harder than it looks. And it’s very addictive.

Angry Birds Star Wars II

Everybody loves Angry Birds. Everybody loves Star Wars. Put them together and you have a game that everybody is sure to love. This sequel to Angry Birds Star Wars is based on the Star Wars movie prequels, and you can use the Force for good against the greedy Pork Federation or choose a much darker path. That’s right; for the first time you can “Join the Pork Side” and play as the fearsome Darth Maul, Emperor Palpatine and many other favorites. Plus you can also be the boring good guys: Yoda, pod-racing Anakin, Mace Windu, Jango Fett and more.

drop7-iphone

Drop7

Named as one of the best iPhone games ever, Drop7 is deceptively simple. And just like Tetris or Bejeweled, it’s easy to learn, difficult to master, and even harder to put down. The game takes place on a square 7×7 grid. You place a disc with a number from 1 to 7 that falls from the top of the grid into a column of your choice, and when the number of any disc matches the number of discs in a row or column, that disc disappears and also hits any blank discs it touches. When a blank is hit twice, it turns into a numbered disc. The object of the game is to eliminate discs and score combos for as long as possible until the grid is full.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

Rockstar’s popular GTA series has been ported to iOS before, with both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft: Auto San Andreas. But the best GTA game available for the iPhone is Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, with an easy-to-use top-down view and touchscreen controls. Following his father’s murder, Huang Lee has a simple mission: deliver an ancient sword to his Uncle Kenny to ensure his family retains control of the Triad gangs of Liberty City. Huang is a spoiled rich kid who expects everything to run smoothly, but his trip does not go exactly as planned. After being robbed and left to die, he will search for honor, riches and revenge in the most dangerous and morally bankrupt city in the world. GTA: Chinatown Wars costs £3.99 on iTunes.

a-dark-room-iphone

A Dark Room

It’s a very simple premise. The game opens with some words on a black screen: “The fire is dead. The room is cold. Awake. Head throbbing. Vision blurry.” So first you need to get a fire going. Then you need to head out in search of wood. And then … well, stuff happens. It’s a text-based RTS game that has been ranked as one of the top 10 games in 17 countries worldwide. It’s a bargain too, at just 79p.

Centred on a truck stop on a Georgia highway, this special episode for Season 1 of The Walking Dead tells five linked stories of survival. Although set in the same world as the hit AMC television series, Telltale’s game is more about characters, exploration and puzzles than just killing zombies in really, really messy ways.
