Electronic Arts Holiday Sale: Top Ten iPhone And iPad Games
It appears publisher Electronic Arts is in the spirit of giving. Either that, or it wants to dominate the App Store charts.
Regardless of the company's true intentions, you'll be happy to know that all (and we mean ALL) EA published iPhone and iPad games are now $0.99 (or free) for a limited time, which gives you the perfect opportunity to capitalize on its best titles.
With this in mind, make sure you grab these ten games immediately.
10. Battleship HD
The classic board game, fully realized for both iPhone and iPad, with wireless play against a friend and the coolest feature of all, cut scenes between turns of cannons firing and more importantly, boats sinking.
9. Trenches II
Destroy the enemy base as either the British, Germans or French in this addictive real-time strategy game. Move units into position, avoid barbed wire and compete online.
8. Mirror's Edge
As the saying goes, "an oldie, but a goodie." Guide Faith through a myriad of stages, sliding underneath objects and making death defying leaps in her effort to stick it to the man. Based on the Xbox 360 and PS3 title.
7. Spy Mouse
Agent Squeak needs to collect all the cheese from a bunch of evil felines in this simple to play but challenging line drawing game. Do your best to slip by undetected, using mouse holes to make quick escapes.
6. Max and the Magic Marker
Help Max complete a series of imaginative stages by drawing along the touch screen to create objects, including bridges to clear bottomless pits and boats to float across bodies of water. Was a huge hit on WiiWare, but this game shines much brighter on iPhone and iPad.
5. FIFA Soccer 12
Have to admit, EA spared no expense bringing its celebrated soccer/football franchise to iOS. You get over 22 licensed leagues, over 500 teams and a whopping 15,000 plus real world players. Take to the field for an intense match, or pull strings from behind the scenes in Manager Mode.
4. Madden NFL 12
Definitely the greatest football experience for both iPhone and iPad. Sharp and detailed graphics (stadiums look sweet), the full NFL license, the ability to draw routes on the touch screen and plenty of modes to enjoy. The perfect couch companion.
3. Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit
Impressive take on the hit console racer, letting you evade the law in a series of expensive vehicles, or bring down street scum while inside a tricked out police car. Without question one of the best iOS driving games.
2. NBA Jam HD
Boomshakalaka! Rattle the rim and drain the three in this outstanding port of the console game, complete with high-flying dunks, epic shots and blocks. Just remember to wag the finger afterwards, Dikembe style.
1. Dead Space
The survival horror series made quite an impact on iOS, with creepy corridors filled with terrifying Necromorphs. Remember to chop off their limbs.
