Best iOS Games
The best games and the best games to play on repeat.
I was a part of the first generation to grow up from a young age with iPhones, I got my first iPhone, the iPhone 5, sometime early-on in middle school.
As such, I was really into finding and downloading interesting games. For the sake of ordering, I’ve made two sections, the first, Hands Down the Best Games, is the games that I would consider to be the best games, but I don’t return too that often, if ever, after finishing them
Hands Down the Best Games
Ryan McLeod created an absolute puzzle gem with this.
2. Sometimes You Die
In a game, you die.
And imply that it has no effect on you.
You feel invincible in the realm behind the screen.
This one is different.
In this game, you have to die.
Phillip Stoyenmayer created an incredible story. Other non-story games of his include Okay?, Zip Zap, Get Hi, supertype, and Burger/Bacon/Pancake.
3. Monument Valley
- and Monument Valley 2
4. Dark Echo

5. Goat Simulator
Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game.
And that’s what makes it so amazing.
6. Ridiculous Fishing
Developed by Vlambeer.
Developed by Nekki.
Price: Free (or $4.99 for the special edition with no ads and no energy)
The Best Games to Play on Repeat
1. PAKO - Car Chase Simulator
Pako seems to have faded into obscurity, I’m not sure if it ever hit mainstream, but it’s always the first game I return to. The driving mechanics are just right. I do wish it was more open, the android version lets you choose what car you use on each map.
There are other versions, PAKO Forever is free and PAKO2 is paid, but for me, neither touch PAKO.
Developed by Tree Men Games, and another game is Heli 100.
Honestly, this is the game I’ve probably dropped the most hours into and would be #1 if I wasn’t so burnt out that I can only play so much now.
Developed by Midjiwan.
Like Tetris but in the 21st century.
Someday I’ll beat the final level.
Developed by Terry Cavanagh, developer of Don’t Look Back, VVVVVV, and more.
Another game by Phillip Stoyenmayer, developer of Sometimes You Die and other games like Zip Zap, Get Hi, supertype, and Burger/Bacon/Pancake.
6. Getting Over It
The most frustrating game.
Developed by Bennett Foddy, developer of QWOP, GIRP, CLOP, FLOP, and more frustrating games.
7. True Skate
Developed by True Axis, developers of Jet Car Stunts and more.
8. Death Road to Canada (DR2C)
Developed by Rocketcat Games.
