'Multiplayer' isn't really a genre, is it? It's more a mode of play.

As you can imagine, picking 25 of the best multiplayer games on iOS is quite a wide remit. Especially when you consider that multiplayer can mean shared-handset, local multi-handset, or online.

We've gone for a varied list of games that's hopefully somewhat representative of all the different multiplayer experiences you can have on iOS.

All share a single thing in common - they're all an absolute hoot to play with other people.
