Name your top 5 "console quality" IOS games

Since upgrading my tablet, I"m on the look-out for console-quality premium titles that still work on IOS 7 and hold up well today.

I'd like to keep this thread free of the pay2win garbage apps if possible, mainly looking for console-quality (ports or otherwise) games. I already have tons of more indie-like games, looking for games with a bit more substance, quality and content.

So what are your top 5? I need ideas.

Mine so far are:

- Pocket RPG (4.99 - no IAPs at all)
- XCOM Enemy Unknown ($20 no IAPs) - full console port
- Avadon: The black Fortress ($10) - full PC port of an excellent RPG
- Space Miner HD
- Warhammer Quest

Penumbear - I could easily see this platformer releasing on PSN or XBLA

Icoboto - in terms of narrative, puzzle platforming, art style, and atmosphere, this is another game I could see being on PSN or WiiU

Monument Valley - kind of a cheat since it's not even out, but I beta tested it and the puzzles and art style rival anything seen in Fez. It would be awesome with a PS4 touchpad or Kinect controls.

Type:Rider - already on PC/Steam, but the atmosphere, thematic art style, and inventive level design is top-notch and unique

Block Fortress - tons of depth and near endless replayability

On a side note, EPOCH is on Steam Greenlight so it will be on PC eventually, with mouse aiming and keyboard controls for movement
