5 Insanely Addictive Games For iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad

Advertisement

It wouldn’t be too far fetched a statement to say that Apple truly revolutionized the mobile gaming experience, complete with superb graphics and and even smoother frame rates. It would also be safe to say that iOS devices currently cater to the some of the best, and overall the largest, genre and titles when it comes to games. Bearing all this in mind, it is no surprise that most awesome games out there for iOS-based devices don’t cost much, but cost you nonetheless. This is why, when it comes to iOS, unlike Android, free games are anxiously looked at. You never know what you might come across, which is why we gathered top 5 addictive, yet free, games for iOS.

NinJump

Allow us to start of by saying that this game, is insane! Requiring quick reflexes on part of your mind of course, the objective is to help your little Ninja jump from wall to wall, avoiding obstacles, enemy ninjas and a fox and a bird, if that makes sense! Why are we doing this? To gain more height, of course, which will give you a higher score, and if you’re not ashamed of letting people know you play such mindless games in your spare time, you can share your scores via Facebook, Twitter and even email. Game Center support is also included.

Jailbreaker 2

Successor to the original Jailbreaker, Jailbreaker 2, unlike it’s predecessor, can be found in the App Store for free. Roll or jump to avoid obstacles as you run on, without a clue as to what lies at the end. Coupled with pumped up background music and some really cool weather effects, this game is bound to keep you occupied for quite a while, making you want to push further and further on every retry. (Editor’s note: wasted half an hour of mine while editing this post).

Boss Battles

The good old arcade-styled shooters never get old, especially if it involves planes and space. Boss Battles gives you some powerful weapons to choose from to annihilate aliens, robots, bugs (aliens again) etc. The objective is to destroy the Boss at the end of each level, and every time he gets stronger, but so does the bounty that you earn. Collect as many diamonds as you can to add to your bank in order to purchase weaponry and upgrades. This game will end up frustrating you, because you will not want to give up. If you swear while playing this game, trust us, we’ll understand.

Lane Splitter

Precision and control is a must as you speed your bike across the road through traffic, where cars do turn on the indicator as they change lane, but don’t rely on it too much. As you progress, your speed increases, and so does the traffic. Tilt right and left to control the bike, and tap the screen to wheelie and increase speed, but be careful; the steering becomes really sensitive at this time. The controls of this game are truly remarkable, making full use of the gyroscope, and you have to play this title to realize what we’re talking about.

  • Nice Post For Iphone Games and best of luck for your great work and please keep it up your work

  • “Insanely addictive.”  Hm.  You know… you’d think that at least SOME things would be instinctively seen as inherently and self-evidently bad, right from the git-go.  Insanely addicitive:  Yeah… just what I’m looking for.

    Just what the world needs:  More young people walking around like zombies, with their eyes glued to a smartphone, and their fingers furiously tapping on its screen, completely ignoring the big, beautiful, fully three-dimensional (with surround sound, even) REAL world around them.

    Sheesh.  No WONDER America needs an annual “night out.”  No one meets over the back fence anymore.  Everyone’s isolated on one form or another of computer.

    • O’course you’re not looking for it Gregg, the kid in you some 30 odd years back may have. I completely understand your point of view, yes, people DO need to get out more, but that does not in anyway imply you can’t have your way with technology. You in your time were content with meeting over the back fence, the newer generation, not so much.

      See, technology did not choose people, people chose technology and with that, they chose to evolve. Evolution my friend, is an ongoing process one that you and I, cannot stop. For the better? Who knows? Judgment by comparison or being cynical just cause things aren’t like they used to be back in your time, is flawed.

      I just feel like you could really reach out to people elsewhere, cause trust me, someone coming over here wanting to download games, has already heard it multiple times from people your age.

      No disrespect intended at any point. If I did, you have my apologies.

      Regards,
      Zayed.
