Default What are the best-looking games on iOS by genre?

For platformer I'd go with Leo's Fortune. Not sure about other genres. RPG maybe the newest Infinity Blade or Horn?

New release Botanicula, one of the prettiest point and click games by far.

RPG = Oceanhorn. Its beautiful, gorgeous, full of lightning effects, shadows,... and its only 200mb installed.

Or Bastion, seeing how the world falls apart behind you and forming in front of you is a sigh to behold the entire game.

Yes, those games again

I think Leo's Fortune will change your list when you get a good look at it.

Good list; seems there should be an entry for more traditional RPGs though. This has kind of reminded me that that arena hasn't got much high-end graphical love lately. I'd almost be inclined to fall back on Drakerider or CR2.

Maybe rename this to "most advanced graphics" rather than "best graphics" because I don't think you were looking for beautiful pixel art, were you?

Just a suggestion to avoid confuse/flame wars

My list would be(Considering both technical and artistic aspects):

JRPG: Chaos Rings 2

Wrpg: Kotor

Action: Battle supremacy

Platformer: Rayman jungle Run(limbo a very close second)

Shooter(Fps): NOVA 3

Shooter(Tps): Shadowgun Deadzone

Adventure: Adventures of tin tin

Sports: Fifa 14(because of no competition)

Racing: Real Racing 3(Best graphics on ios imo only game which looks like an early ps3/360 game)

Open world: Ravensword Shadowlands

Horror: Dead Space

Strategy: Call of duty:Strike team

Simulation: Sims free play

P. S:Leo's fortune looks pretty Rad too.

Beauty is subjective. How about this upcoming floral puzzler?
