Best iPhone Games 2015
Whether you're packing an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus or you own one of the older models, you'll need something to keep you busy on the bus or while you watch the Hollyoaks omnibus. So here's a run down of the best games you can download this year.
Opening the iOS App Store can present you with a tonne of games that can make picking a great one nearly impossible. How can you know whether yet another match-three title is any match for the mighty Candy Crush? Or is there something that's better for your brain and your thumbs? Well, unless you fancy taking off a couple of months to peruse each and every one, finding the store's top picks is quite an undertaking.
So we've done all the hard work for you. All you need to do is take a look at our pick of the the fifteen best iPhone games to be released this year, and decide which one sounds right up your street.
This time around we've got five new additions to the list of best iPhone games, ranging from the football-focused Score! Hero to the space puzzler/adventurer Tales from Deep Space.
The latter is a brand new game from Amazon Game Studios and sets the bar high for all future adventure titles on iPhone. Then there's Prune, a stunningly simple puzzle game that is so much more than it first appears.
Of course, you've also got the more traditional Angry Birds 2, which redefines the Angry Birds series. Or you can go for the bizarre brawler The Executive.
So click through, pick your favourites and start downloading. You can guarantee they'll be a thousand or more new games on the App store clamouring for your attention by the time you get to the end.
