Top 10 iOS games for 2010

Probably one of the toughest top ten games lists to narrow down this year is this iPhone, iPod touch and iPad list. My game-packed iPhone and iPad is a testament to the many games that are not included in this list. There are TONS of great iOS games available at an affordable price, but if you just want a top ten essential list, this is it. From simply addicting to new games with a retro gaming feel, don’t miss out on these essential ten.

    Don’t forget the holiday edition of Angry Birds which includes the Halloween and Xmas versions of the game. Its a great value at $1.99

    I agree with Angry Birds and The Incident but the others seem ok. Very shocked that Cut the Rope isn’t mentioned.

    I shared! I really dont know why Angry Birds is #1 pick.. I think Doodle Jump should be in the list
