While action games seem to garner the lion’s share of attention from the hardcore gaming community, the App Store also provides a thoroughly entertaining and stimulating collection of puzzle games for the iPhone and iPod touch. In fact, puzzle games consistently deliver the best replay value of any genre due to the continuously changing playing fields generated by these games. This roundup features ten of my favorite puzzle games listed in the order of how much time I spend playing them (least to most). Every game on the list has high replay value, and the more time I spend with a game, the more rewarding, intellectually stimulating, and addicting I find it.
The best is yet to come!
The iPhone and iPod touch platforms host some of the most beautiful and addicting puzzle games available today—for any mobile device! It is simply remarkable how many excellent titles have been released for the iPhone/iPod touch platform in such a short period of time.
I am really looking forward to the release of games that take advantage of the latest iPhone SDK libraries, enhancements to the OS, and new hardware features found on the iPhone 3GS. It’s a great time to be a mobile gamer, but the best is yet to come!
