Jetpack Joyride (Halfbrick) 

Available on iOS

From the creators of the popular Fruit Ninja comes something completely different, Jetpack Joyride. Remember the helicopter game, or other runner games where you just have to take off to your right at progressively faster speeds, while avoiding obstacles and collecting points? Jetpack Joyride is like that but with far deeper implications. The entire game is from a 2D, side-scrolling perspective with a bright and fun design. You have to use your jetpacking skills to collect coins, which are then used to upgrade your character. You can buy your way to better items with real money, but it’s much more satisfying to unlock them by playing the challenges. It may be jarring at first, but as you play more, unlocking the achievements and customizing your character, it’s easy to get lost in the game’s hidden depth. Jetpack Joyride is easily one of the best iOS games of the year.
