Best iOS games of 2017

An­drew Hay­ward rounds up the best ti­tles of 2017

iPad&iPhone user - - ROUND-UP -

It has been an­other great year for iOS games, as 2017 de­liv­ered a heap of must-play iPhone and iPad picks. Some were de­signed first for touch while oth­ers were el­e­gantly ported from other plat­forms, but at the end of the day, these are the games that im­pressed us the most and kept us com­ing back for more this year.

1. Mon­u­ment Val­ley 2 Price: £4.99 from

The orig­i­nal Mon­u­ment Val­ley quickly es­tab­lished it­self as one of the all-time essen­tial iOS games, de­liv­er­ing an orig­i­nal puz­zle-solv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that felt per­fectly tai­lored for a por­ta­ble touch de­vice. This year’s Mon­u­ment Val­ley 2 didn’t rein­vent the wheel, but it brought enough tweaks and ex­pan­sion to com­pletely avoid feel­ing like an unin­spired se­quel.

As be­fore, Mon­u­ment Val­ley 2 is all about solv­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal puz­zles in an ar­ray of baf­fling and beau­ti­ful lev­els that don’t con­form to re­al­is­tic physics or ar­chi­tec­tural tenets. Now, how­ever, you’ll guide both Ro and her child, with puz­zles and ob­sta­cles that in­volve both at the same time. It’s more of the same, but more bril­liance is never a bad thing.
