This 10 Best Board Games list may not be the most accurate representation of the word "best." You see, most of the board games on this list aren't anywhere near a "best" rating. Most of the games listed are from Electronic Arts, a company housing a secret division whose sole purpose is to take the board games we love, make a good version, then update and destroy them. But...
Forever Lost: Episode 1 HD is a brand new, bite-sized adventure from UK-based Glitch Games. Is the game worth the key-hunting and clue-collecting insanity, or is it better off forever lost in the ether of the App Store?
Sugar Kid may have a sweet and saccharine title, but don't let all the bright colors and rainbow infused backdrops fool you. One of your first choices as the game loads is the chance to watch Sugar Kid bleed to death from an overabundance of fluids. Asking gamers if they, "Like some gore?" right off the bat brings a level of unpredictability to the proceedings. But does the adventure live up to all the gore?
Mattel, Chillingo, and developer Glitchsoft have announced that everyone's favorite blonde muscle-head from outer space will be arriving on the iOS this fall in 'He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe.' I think my inner 6-year old just had a heart attack.
Tower defense games are a dime a dozen in the iOS world, but Blade Guardian is from the creative mind of Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. Anytime a visionary steps onto the gaming stage, there’s a ton of pressure, but thankfully he and his Mistwalker team deliver with a highly entertaining and layered gameplay experience.

Films like Once Upon A Time In America and Carlito’s Way are proof that gangster films can excel with their own uniquely epic, and at times pulpy, style. Whatever images are in the frame should draw the audience into the story, and upon seeing the intriguing opening sequence of Payback2, I was ready for a compelling gangland experience.
Super Monsters Ate My Condo!, the follow-up to Monsters Ate My Condo!, is not afraid to place gamers in the throes of sensory overload. The brighter than a rainbow images jump off the screen in this jenga inspired puzzle game. Imagine matching colored blocks in the middle of a city surrounded by surreal looking monsters waiting to tear your dreams down, all within a two minute span. It's a visual sugar rush to your soul that doesn't let you go.
Several years ago I had to give my kitten to new guardians after discovering my entire family was allergic to his dander. Although my next trip to the animal shelter won't occur for the next several years, raising a little monster will do. Zenforms: Protectors has gamers striving to be protectors of creatures named Zenforms, and it's a 2D RPG universe that has tons of potential.
Jordan Mechner's highly praised mystery The Last Express is finally available for iOS enthusiasts, and this rotoscope driven project proves that it still is relevant and effective years afters its 1997 release. Praise obviously goes to The Last Express mastermind Jordan Mechner, the video game designer best known for his Prince of Persia franchise.
