Whatoplay presents the Top 10 iOS Games of 2015 so far. Our ranking is not a personal opinion. It’s based on a 1 to 10 score that aggregates gamers and critics, reviews into a unique score called playscore. 10th in the ranking is Flop Rocket. It’s a game that’s just fun to play. Your goal is to fly your spaceship across a 5 kilometer stretch filled with monsters, obstacles, coins and more! It doesn’t reinvent the wheel..
Rather, it polishes established conventions. Fast-paced for quick re-plays. There are tons of upgrades. And just enough difficulty to keep you playing. A playscore of 8.6. Number 9 is Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Remember those Neo-Geo arcade games? This is one of them! A 2D fighting game that has stood the test of time. It looks and play like the original. – fast attacks and combos.
The touch control felt weird, at first, but you’ll get used to it after a few rounds. And they added online multiplayer! A playscore of 8.6. In 8 is Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire. I’ve followed developer Nitrome when flash games were all the rage, even more so now on mobile! Magic Touch is arguably one of their finest works! You play as a wizard defending a tower against endless waves of enemies! The pixelart looks wonderful. It’s simple and quite addictive. And it’s free on iTunes! A playscore of 8.7. Ranked number 7 is Radiation Island. This is a survival game set in a mysterious island and is one of the prettiest 3D games on iOS today. It looks great! Just be warned. Its gorgeous visuals drains battery fast! There are a lot of things to do: explore, scavenge for food, craft weapons and solve puzzles. And you get to shoot zombies! It receives a playscore of 8.7. 6th in the ranking is Shadowmatic. It’s a clever puzzle game, one that’s clearly designed with touch controls in mind.
Your goal is to cast a recognizable shadow out of seemingly-random shapes. It’s a beautiful piece of a game. The lighting and interaction looks realistic. I did not encounter frustrating difficulty spikes. And, again, the controls feel natural. Shadowmatic holds a playscore of 8.7. Ranked 5 is Card Crawl. Imagine dungeon crawlers with a deck of cards and plays like solitaire. That’s exactly what Card Crawl is – an intriguing mix of adventure and card games. Your goal in each game is to clear all 54 cards without dying. It’s a classic time-waster, perfect for quick mobile gaming; And the game’s neat presentation makes every playthrough relaxing. A playscore of 8.8. Fourth is Dark Echo.
It may not look like it but this a horror game. You’re trapped in a dark room and must find your way out before ”they” come. Dark Echo is a smart, well-designed horror game. It doesn’t rely on jump-scares, instead it delivers the creep-factor through anticipation of the unknown. And there are 80 levels to clear! It holds a playscore of 8.8. Ranked number 3 is Alto’s Adventure. It’s an endless runner…the most beautiful endless runner I’ve played so far.
You control a snowboarder on one hell of a ski ride to capture all escaped llamas. The gameplay is exactly the same as other runner games. What makes Alto’s Adventure unique is aesthetics. It’s one pretty game coupled with fitting music. It receives a playscore of 8.9. Second is One Piece Treasure Cruise. This action RPG is definitely made for fans of the anime & manga series. It doesn’t introduce new mechanics in combat and role-playing. Instead it focuses on immersing you into the crazy world of One Piece. You meet, interact, control and fight characters from the series. Even the settings and events are similar Treasure Cruise is the ultimate fan-service game! A playscore of 9.2. And the number one so far is Space Marshals. Fight smart or die. This is a tactical shooter with space-faring cowboys. And it looks and plays amazing! Its graphics is smooth and crisp.
Battles are exciting. And I enjoy the stealth sections as much as the direct encounters. And it tells a wonderful story complete with interesting characters. Oh god. I can’t wait for part 2! Space Marshals holds a playscore of 9.5. To recap, here are 2015’s 10 highest-rated iOS games so far!
