When it comes to video games, gameplay is everything. Or so we're often told.

In truth, how a game looks is very important indeed, so the graphics is rather important. It doesn't have to be the best looking iOS game, but it needs to look respectably well. Ask yourself this: what was the last really good game you played that struck you as being flat-out ugly? Usually, if a game is bad looking, it's not going to be much fun.

This is a visual medium, and as such graphics are essential to sell a game's mood and pull you into its world. In short, a game's looks are all part of the appeal.

And there are some truly dazzling games available for iOS devices. Apple's mobile phones and tablets are extremely powerful these days, with desktop-level processors and pin-sharp displays. And those wily game developers have made the most of this expanded palette.

Not that every game on our list is all about technical chops. Many of these games are all about a particularly creative art style, or a distinctive look.

Whatever kind of game you're into, there's bound to be something in here that will be a feast for your eyes. Lets dive into the list of best graphics iOS games!
