Top iOS Games To Play Over the Holidays
The holidays are a time for spending time with family and friends, enjoying the outdoors... and catching up on the iOS games we wanted desperately to play during the year but didn’t get the time for. So here are our picks for the top iOS games to download and play these holidays.
Angry Birds Star Wars
Join Luke and Leia, Beak-3PO and Obi-Wing Kenobi (at least, that’s what I would’ve named them) and the rest of the Rebel Birds as they take on the evil Imperial Pigs – by stealing the plans to the Empire’s secret weapon: the Pig Star. Break down the Imperial Pig barriers with Luke’s lightsabre and Leia’s laser vision.
From the classic Angry Birds that took the world by storm to its various versions, like Seasons, Space and Rio, I’d still recommend the Angry Birds series. And the titles have now been ported to a host of other platforms, so you can play it on your PC or your PS3 too.
Are You Quick Enough? 2
It’s a very simple principle: a series of tests and games designed to be beaten in seconds. From easy math problems to throwing ninja stars at evil ninjas (and avoiding the geishas), Are You Quick Enough? 2 is challenging and completely addictive.
The Enemy Pigs are back. And that’s not propaganda rhetoric, that’s Bad Piggies: the now infamous green pigs that made their debut in the Angry Birds series. Except now they find themselves pyrotechnically enhanced and inventors of note - or rather, of disrepute.
Beat Sneak Bandit
Another gem by Simogo Games. Someone has stolen all the clocks in your world and its up to you – the Beat Sneak Bandit – to get them back. The game must be played with the sound on because you need to move Beat Sneak Bandit to the beat... in order to be sneaky.
A Simogo Games title that’s both simple and super addictive. It’s an easy enough principle – you control two characters on a road trip. But the trick is to make the road move. You can jump, accelerate or slow yourself down, but the object is to collect as many tokens and pictures as you can... without falling in the water.
Be a fruit slashing, slicing ninja warrior in Fruit Ninja – the healthiest of today’s most popular mobile games. There is something immensely satisfying about rapidly slashing through fruit. It’s available on every smartphone as well as the iPad, Kinect and Facebook.
Yes. Build a tower filled with Tiny Tower residents – or Bitizens – and make them work. You build businesses and residences, employ or fire bitizens, and move them in or evict them. There are missions to fulfil and challenges to accept.
