  • Do you like tower defense games? If so, then don't worry about reading the rest of this description. Just go buy it. If you've never played any of the Bloons games, the gist is to keep balloons from making it to the end of course. You do this by placing dart-throwing monkeys and all sorts of other defenses along the path. As the rounds go by, things begin to get more challenging. This is easily my favorite tower defense game, outside of Pixel Junk Monsters, but that's not even for the iPad, so it doesn't count here. :)

    Cost: $4.99 // App Store Link: Bloons TD 4 HD

  • Peggle is one of my favorite games of all time! If you've never played it, you basically shoot balls at pegs. Yeah, that's a pretty generic explanation that's sure to get you ready to bust out your credit card, but just trust me when I tell you this game is incredibly addictive and ridiculously fun.

    Cost: $2.99 // App Store Link: Peggle HD

  • At just $0.99, Flick Golf Extreme is a no-brainer. The graphics and game play are very smooth and extremely fun. It's really easy to master the mechanics of this game, but to score 100% on the world tour is quite challenging. To play, you flick the ball with your finger and then control certain factors about it while it's in the air. I'm impatiently waiting for the next game by these developers, because this one is just all sorts of fun!
