iPhone Game Development – Top 6 Games Launched in 2011

iPhone users don’t hesitate to download countless games on their smartphone, and the growing demand of games on the Apple store has taken iPhone game development to a new level. Over a billion games have been downloaded till date. A number of old world games are being converted to fit the smartphone format, and inventive game developers are creating numerous new games, keeping the iPhone features in their mind.

Consequently, countless exciting games are developed every month. 2011 has been a very good year as far as iPhone game development is concerned, and the following hit games have captured the imagination of gamers:

Canabalt: This game features a well-dressed guy running and leaping over crumbling rooftops and dodging explosives. There are a lot of games featuring runners escaping some sort of apocalypse, and this is the most downloaded game in its category. The fact that you just need to press one button to play the game, coupled with the fact that it takes less than a minute to figure out how to play the game, makes this game a fun way to kill time.

First Touch Soccer: FIFA and Pro Evo fans celebrated when they played this game. This is arguably the best touchscreen soccer game; its animation is better than that of any other smartphone soccer game. Also, it is filled to the brim with exciting features: there are 250 teams, 30 competitions, multiplayer modes, and all kinds of tournaments.

Angry Birds Rio: Any list of top iPhone games would be incomplete without ‘Angry Birds’. After the ‘Angry Birds’ games captured the imagination of gamers all over the world, the market has been flooded with numerous ‘Angry Bird’ apps. But the best among the lot is Angry Birds Rio; in this game you kill monkeys and find golden fruits instead of fresh birds!

Words With Friends: All gamers are not looking for explosions, races or shooting. For people who like words, this is the best game of 2011. It is quite similar to scrabble; you need to spell out words in horizontal or vertical lines and most repeated words like ‘e’ and ‘a’ have low value, while less common words like ‘x’ and ‘q’ have high value. The best part of this game is that it lets you play with your friends or set you up with random opponents.

The Impossible Game: While most iPhone game development teams stress the fact that a smartphone game has to be simple and easy to learn, The Impossible Game takes the opposite approach. You (an orange square) need to persevere against all kinds of evil shapes to get the game going, but once you succeed (after 100 attempts) you will be addicted to the game for life!

Spider-The Secret of Bryce Manor: Spiders are creepy creatures, and they gross out many of us. But this game lets you get into the shoes of spider and look at the world from a spider’s perspective. But you are not just an ordinary spider: you are like a spider detective, and you must find out about the people who lived in the mansion and you must find out why they left their house.
