Kingdom Rush Vengeance
If you were trying to get someone to like tower defence games, then you'd probably use the Kingdom Rush series. This newest entry is every bit as good as all the others - it plays around with the shape of the genre, adds in a bunch of great ideas, and gives you more control than pretty much every other game you could give the same label to. In short, Kingdom Rush Vengeance is ace.
Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders 2
Somehow, the App Store has become one of the best places to find flight sims. This one is set in World War 2 and sees you piloting a whole bunch of iconic planes in some of the pivotal dogfights of the conflict. Throw in mulltiplayer and a bunch of other modes and you're left with one of the most packed shooters of the year.
This one also wins the award for grossest game of the year. It's all about guiding wads of phlegm from one move to another. Imagine Angry Birds but with way more smooching. There's an important message about love here too, but it's delivered so brilliantly you might not even notice.
A wonderful mix of modern and retro - it looks a bit like R-Type, but you're flying a delorean and you've got a special move that rips open the fabric of spacetime. It's fast and fluent, and there's enough progression here that you're never going to be able to sit down for just one go.
Into the Dark: Narakan
There are loads of brilliant indie roguelikes on the App Store, but this one stands head-and-shoulders above them, It's got a unique look, a diverting story, and it rewards you for exploration. This isn't a game that holds your hands or explains to you what you have to do, which makes figuring things out even sweeter.
