Classic, Popular, Unmissable IOS Games You Haven't Played Yet

Had Battleheart Legacy sitting on the 'pad for ages, but only finally started it last night. Several hours later, I remembered that people sometimes need liquid, food, and if they're completely decadent, sleep.

Other biggies I've put off:

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (One day...as this game is so my thing)

Xcom: Enemy Unknown (I know it's not tower defence- which I've never enjoyed, including the little TD bits in Bug Heroes 2- but RTS is so not my thing. Still, it does look unmissable)

Geometry Wars (OK, technically I played the lite version for a little bit before deleting. Even right after completing Boson X, it was faaaar too frustrating looking for someone who only dabbles in masochism but never goes full tilt)

Angry Birds (...Really never felt the need)

I have KOTOR that I played briefly but never got back around to it to go really in depth and enjoy. Also Bastion has been on my 5s for a while and I would love the time to just finish the entire game

I'm a weirdo. I've been sitting on several games for quite awhile, waiting for large chunks of time to immerse myself. Monument Valley is one if them.

Oceanhorn had been sitting on my ipad, i've played only 30 minutes off of it when i first launched it.

Then there's DQ8, Shadow Sun, Dungelot 2, Max Payne, Tomb Raider and Lili which were only played less than an hour each.

Did you not enjoy them? Or not enough time to immerse yourself?

Just no time to play everything. i do love these titles i mentioned, that's why they are still in my ipad. I'll get to them when i get the chance though, especially since im not buying games as fast as i did before and now i have this one-purchase-per-week thing im observing.

Haha yeah I just went from iPad 2 to iPad Air 128g, so I feel like I have to fill all that space up with games. I'm now doing my best to not click on the App Store icon.....I wish there was a way to delete it Oh and forgot to mention, Aralon for me. Downloaded to my iPod way back when, just started playing it again after over a year.
