Letterpress

We’ve already written about Letterpress showing you all the game has to offer. If you want just the skinny though, here it is: Letterpress is a word game that draws inspiration from the genre’s main elements but adds a very unique (and quite addictive) online competitive element, making it easily one of the best iOS word games out there.

Create words and fight against your online opponent for each others’ letters. The one who gets them all wins the match!

The mechanics behind Ruzzle is simple: You and your online opponent (including your Facebook and Twitter friends) have to find as many words as you can from the letters provided in less than two minutes. You can connect letters sliding your finger across them to form words in any direction. At the end of three rounds of two minutes each, the player with the most points wins.

There is a lot more to it of course, like additional points for repeat letters or for repeat words for example. But in essence, the joy of the game is the rush of beating your opponent in the two minutes that each round lasts.

Using three lines of five boxes each, you have to place letters you are presented with (one at a time only) in order to create words. That is the premise of Moxie. a beautifully presented word game that is also excellent for anyone starting with this genre. You can also swap letters and pass the ones you can’t use, which provides the game with endless possibilities.

Additionally, you can also change the game’s theme. also additional colors come at a cost.

WordJong Lite

Mixing the elements of word games and Mahjong, the aptly named WordJong Lite is a word game you can play solo. In order to win, you need to create the best possible words using the top layer of tiles available. What makes the game so addictive (and also a bit frustrating) is the existence of daily challenges and which score you have to beat. Problem is though, there is only one of these per day, which might leave you wanting for more.

WordJong also has some great sound effects, and playing the game with headphones will relax you even when riding the subway.

While a bit on the childish side presentation-wise, Word Bird turned out to be quite a charming word game. In it, your goal is to get as many coins as possible using all your available turns. You have to create words using adjacent letters (each of which has a certain coin value) in order to get more coins and earn more turns. You can also unlock some additional features by purchasing its premium version.

Overall, a very simple word game to keep you busy in short spans of time.

So there you go. Start downloading and have fun!

But now on with the list. We've divided our roundup of the best iPad & iPhone games into 15 genres or themes - click the area that interests you to see the brilliant games we recommend in that genre.

1. Best adventure, point-and-click and story games for iPad & iPhone

Games characterised by a strong characters and storyline and (for the most part) a lack of fast action. Instead, players speak to other characters, collect and combine objects and look for ways to interact with the environment (often via a 'point and click' interface).

2. Best board games for iPad & iPhone

3. Best card games & deck-building games for iPad & iPhone

Not whist and solitaire. These are collectible card games and deck-builders, where you assemble a deck of special cards to do battle with other players or a computer-controlled enemy. We've got 6 brilliant games to try, of which the most famous are Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering (pictured below).

4. Best casual games for iPad & iPhone

This is both our largest category (13 games) and our vaguest: it can include pretty much any game that is designed for quick sessions, and which is designed to appeal to less hardcore gamers. It also includes some of the most famous iPhone and iPad series: Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, World of Goo and Bejeweled.

5. Best driving & racing games for iPad & iPhone

Exactly what it sounds like: the finest driving games for iOS. We like 13 in particular, covering both relatively realistic (such as Asphalt 8: Airborne) and cartoonish (such as Crazy Taxi, below) graphical and gameplay styles, and even a few that let you race not cars but motorbikes or rocket-powered hydro jets.

6. Best horror games for iPad & iPhone

Anything scary can appear in this category. Contains 4 games at present.

7. Best multiplayer & social games for iPad & iPhone

If you like playing games against other human beings this category (which contains 4 games, plus links to great multiplayer games in other sections) is the one for you. Draw Something and Vainglory, two totally different games but both brilliant for multiplayer gamers, are the most well-known offerings in this category.

8. Best platform games for iPad & iPhone

Nintendo hasn't brought its games to iOS quite yet. but Mario would be the classic example of a platform game. While we wait for the plumber to arrive, try these 13 wonderful platform games, which run the gamut from puzzle platformers (Stealth Inc) and horror platformers (Limbo) to terrifyingly addictive old-school platformers (Mr Jump).

9. Best puzzle games for iPad & iPhone

Our puzzle section includes 'physics puzzle games', where you manipulate gravity, floating bubbles and other physical effects (Cut The Rope is the most obvious example of this). We've also got mellow abstract puzzles, such as Lyne, room-escape games such as The Room series, the beautiful and all-conquering Monument Valley and plenty more. There are 12 games in this section.

10. Best roleplaying games (or RPGs) for iPad & iPhone

Dungeon crawlers, sword-and-sorcery action, high fantasy: RPGs are the games where you control a heroic wizard, warrior or thief - or a party made up of several complementary heroes - and collect fabulous treasure on the way to (usually) saving the kingdom. Infinity Blade is the most famous mobile RPG, but Baldur's Gate may be our personal favourite. Contains 10 games; recently updated to add the wonderful Legend of Grimrock (pictured below).

11. Best shooting games for iPad & iPhone

Our list of brilliant iOS shoot 'em ups includes first-person shooters such as Deus Ex and retro top-down shooters such as Death Ray Manta. The most famous game series in this section is Grand Theft Auto; we currently have 7 shooting games that you need to try.

12. Best side-scrolling games for iPad & iPhone

These are games defined by a constant (and usually very fast) movement towards the righthand side of the screen. There are 6 games in this section, of which the most famous may be Tiny Wings .

13. Best sports games for iPad & iPhone

The 5 sports sims in this section focus on football (including New Star Soccer), golf (including Super Stickman Golf) and, er, fishing - that's the superb Ridiculous Fishing. We also link to skiing and snowboarding games in other sections.

14. Best strategy & tower defence games for iPad & iPhone

Strategy games involve marshalling your forces - an army or group of soldiers, or the defences of a castle or town - and dealing with an enemy force. Tower defence is a popular subset of this, focusing specifically on building static guns and similar defensive fortifications in order to repel a moving (and enormously numerous) opponent. Fieldrunners (pictured below) and Plants vs Zombies are the most famous examples of the latter category, and are among the 7 great games in this section.

15. Best word games for iPad & iPhone

If you love word games, take a look at these 4 brilliant examples of the genre for iPhone and iPad. Words With Friends is the most famous, but the lovely Blackbar is well worth a look too.

16. The leftovers

This is where we keep games that we used to love, but for some reason we've had to take out of the chart. Needless to say, the games in this section do not count towards the total in the headline.

Most commonly, games are moved here because they've been taken off the App Store by their publisher or developer, and so you can't buy them at the present time. On other occasions the developer cranks up the price, switches to an exploitative IAP-heavy business model, or updates the game in some other way that stops it working well or removes a beloved feature, and we're obliged to sadly withdraw our recommendation.

In all of these cases we shunt the game into this section and hope that the situation will be reversed at some point in the future, allowing us to put it back in the main article. (Feel free to use the comments section to point out any cases where you think this applies.)

What about the freebies? Which are the best free games for iPad and iPhone?

Everyone loves free things, but the problem with free games is that there are so many of them - it's very hard to know which ones are decent and which ones are going to try to gouge you for in-app purchases.

There are some wonderful free games in the various categories above, but if you're only interested in free games it's very likely that you'll also be interested in our dedicated freebie roundups: the best free iPhone apps. the best free iPad apps. the best free iPhone games and the best free iPad games .

At the same time, remember that there's no such thing as a free lunch. If a game is free, then (unless it was made as part of a public-awareness campaign, such as the enjoyable rail-safety game Dumb Ways To Die ) the makers must have a plan to make money in other ways - adverts, or selling user data to advertisers, or in-app purchases. And in the mobile gaming field we're finding that these things are often ruining games and games franchises that would be fantastic if they weren't trying to flog you coins at every opportunity.

The innovative companies who take risks are finding that they can't make back their costs, and they're being replaced by cloners and IAP-pushers who repackage the same old ideas and turn them into freemium trudges. You died! Pay 69p to continue. You died! Pay 69p to continue. And so on.

So do consider paying for iOS games. It's nearly always under a fiver, and helps to support the awesome companies who make games that aren't constantly trying to trick you into spending extra money.
