  • Easily the best-looking Pinball game I think I've ever played (outside of the real deal, of course), Pinball HD functions exactly like you think it would. Oddly enough, I only really like one level in this game (the one pictured), but I like it so much, that I've played it for hours. Just imagine if you had purchased one pinball machine that you loved for your home years ago. Same deal here, I suppose. Or not? Either way, it's well worth the price at only $0.99.

    Cost: $0.99 // App Store Link: Pinball HD

  • Jetpack Joyride kind of came out of nowhere for me! The only thing you have to do for this entire game is use one thumb. Sounds way too simple, right? The game gets challenging, but in a good way. Also, it seems as though you might get bored quite fast with repetitive game play, but that's strangely not the case. It may be due to the constantly updating goals and upgrades you can purchase with the coins you collect. At $0.99, there's no way you won't find this game of value. One of my favorites of the year!

  • Aqueduct is a puzzle game where you must fit the pieces together such that water can flow from faucet to drain. Once you start getting towards the end of world 3 and into world 4, this game gets super-challenging. It's a very inventive, clever, and simple game. But don't let its humble appearance fool you. If you like puzzle games, I have no doubt this would be amongst your favorites!

    Cost: $2.99 // App Store Link: Aqueduct
