Alto's Odyssey - download for iOS
A brilliant sequel that builds on the equally brilliant original. You're sliding down a mountain, pulling off tricks to keep your speed up, and collecting coins as you go. There are challenges to complete, and a beautiful world to explore. Seriously, you could have this game playing in the background at a posh dinner party, that's how good it looks.
Florence - download for iOS
A sometimes sad, often heart-warming game about love, life, and loss. It's a mix between a simple puzzler and a visual novel, and while there isn't actually much to do, you're going to want to stick with it. It's the sort of game that you're going to consume in a single sitting, but that's going to remain with you for days, if not weeks, afterwards.
Death Squared - download for iOS
This one's a puzzling port that sees you trying to get cubes into the right place. It might not sound that original, but Death Squared throws so many curve balls into the mixture that sometimes it's hard to keep up. Hard to keep up in the best way possible though. It's a fun, head-scratching experience that's well worth your time.
Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition - download for iOS
Does it have its problems? Sure. Is it a remarkable achievement in spite of those problems? Absolutely. A squished down version of the latest main FF release, the graphics might be different, and the play might be a bit more casual, but there are hours and hours of fun to be had here. If you're a fan of the series, then this one's a no-brainer.
Hero Hunters - download for iOS
Shooters are often the most disappointing games on mobile. This one bucks that trend by being fast, fresh, and looking really, really good. Dart between cover, taking out enemies as you go. The ability to switch between different members of your squad throws up some really interesting tactical options, and there's more than a shade of Overwatch in the design here as well.
