Any, good, lengthy iPad games?

Asked by Paul (2717points) May 17th, 2011

Most games you find on the app store tend to be quick throwaway games with little to no reason to revisit them after their short completion time. Does anyone have any recommendation as to a good lengthy game, I’m not talking AAA length here (although there length is getting shorter and shorter) but just something worthy of my money. I have and enjoy:
Plants vs Zombies
Mirrors Edge (Completed but enjoyed)
Thanks in advance guys and gals :D

Stick Fu is pretty good, not sure if it’s on the iPad, you could try urban ninja or some of the others by donut games. Labyrinth and Labyrinth 2 are good

Boy I wish I could help you but stopped buying games simply for the same reason, I lose interest quickly. I noticed you don’t have Angry Birds in your list considering I always hear its a great game. Personally, I think it’s a poor imitation of a game I liked from the past, Worms Armageddon. I hope they bring it to the iPad. That I would recommend. :-)

@mazingerz88 I have Angry Birds but didn’t include it on the list as I don’t enjoy playing it, Worms Armageddon was a great game though.

@FPSMadPaul Yeah! I miss those little suckers and it’s great to play it with other people. If I can play that online in my iPad I’ll pay for that no doubt. Glad you know that game.

@michaelandy We don’t do advertising/self promotion around here, stop advertising for products and try to answer the question.

Try Cause of Death or Surviving High School. Plot in both keeps me entertained and it’s ongoing until they decide to stop developing it. It’s like a tv show. Each week you can tune in to download one free episode. Of course, they have an on demand section where you can buy previous episodes but I always wait for the free one. They are both free to download, btw. I love both games.

I know this question is ancient, but so am I and it could use a bump. The question is no less relevant now. There’s a lot of garbage on the app store. But here are some recommendations:

Tales from Monkey Island – the sound is broken since the iOS9 update but still a wonderful and faithful adaptation from the original MI games.

The Last Express – Entrancing historical puzzle suspense game from the mid 90’s, remade, better than ever.

Little Caves: The Legend of Princes Pixel – incredibly indepth maze adventure game with beautiful sights and sounds, zany and profound dialog, hours of questing, and a true retro experience.

Ticket to Ride Pocket – free to play the basic map – an excellent board game, with no mucking about with cards or little plastic trains. There are other good board game adaptations out there, but this is a personal favorite.

There really are some gems out there. Look for good reviews that don’t sound like advertisements!
