I have to confess, I love minimal iOS games. I enjoy the cleverness needed to create something engaging, yet so simple. While I like elaborate games like Civilization, there is so much content and depth it actually seems easier to make something great. With the limited resources and screen real-estate of iOS devices, simpler yet well-made games are at the forefront. In this article, I’ll show you some of my favorite ones.
I tried to put in a fair mix of free and paid games, although I am personally a strong believer in paid apps. I think ideally all apps should be free – so anyone can benefit – but those who have the means should pay for them. Until then, I think that supporting excellent games by paying for them is the best route to take.
