There are tons of games on the AppStore, with more added each week - so it can be hard to keep up with the best paid games for iPhone that you should be taking a look at! To help aid you in your mission to play more games, we have dedicated ourselves to keeping a list of the top, up-to-date, paid games out on the App Store.
This article will always include the top 10 paid games on the App Store this week, so if that’s what you are looking for, you have found it! These games will have a price point at entry, but they will be the games everyone else has felt were good to dish out a bit of cash to play. We are specifically targeting the UK App Store with our list.
As you might have guessed, the top games do move around quite a bit, so we will be updating this list of best paid games for your iPhone regularly so that you can keep track of what games you should be playing. We will also be mentioning any major changes that we find every time we update the list, which will give you a better view of the games that have stuck around but have updated and changed along the way.
Let’s get into the list of best paid iOS games for your iPhone and iPad!
Original Post by Jupiter Hadley, updates by Pocket Gamer Staff.
At number one, can you believe it? I can’t believe Minecraft is still the top paid game on your iPhone. I have played Minecraft as a high schooler, years ago, yet it still haunts the tops lists everywhere. Minecraft is an open-world, voxel game where you can build, craft, fight monsters, explore, craft potions and more. There is a lot to do in this game and it’s currently being actively updated so I do understand why it sits high.
If you are not yet familiar with Minecraft but would love to learn more about it, you can read our Minecraft review!
Bloons TD 6 is an amazing tower defense game, which is why it’s sat at the top of the paid list for quite some time. You are able to create towers, upgrade them, unlock heroes, change your abilities and so much more - providing a lot of strategy and fun to be had within this game! Bloons TD 6 also boosts over 49 original maps - with 3D objects that can block your line of site, so you’ll need to be aware and crafty to stay on top.
Unlike free to play tower defense games, you won’t find a load of in-app purchases in this one! You should check our Bloons TD 6 review if you're eager to learn how this game plays out.
This is very topical giving the, uh, current climate of the world. You can basically create a virus, and once enough people have been infected, you can mutate the virus to get it to new areas, undetected, as you continue to kill all of the humans in the world. The game continues to get updates, adding new ways to play and new features, which is why it has been able to keep the third place on the top paying iPhone games list!
We've absolutely loved Plague Inc., and if you want to know why make sure to read our Plague Inc. review!
Monopoly is another surprise to me, as nobody I know likes the board game, however it brings a bit of nostalgia to your phone - and you can play with all the pieces instead of losing some in the back of your cabinet. Monopoly has several different boards, characters, skins and more adding to the game and making it more fun - as well as different rule varieties, which cannot be argued as they are in the app and not being dictated by your dumb cousin.
In our Monopoly review, we've covered a bunch of features that make this classic board game such a great investment in digital form. Don't miss it!
You might be excited to learn that an all-time fan favourite has finally made it onto the top 10 best paid iOS games. It's Stardew Valley, of course. While it has not received the 1.5 expansion just yet (that's the one with Ginger Island), players can still enjoy this comic and wildly addictive farming simulator.
We've shared all the goods and bad (albeit not that many) about the game in our Stardew Valley review, that you should check out ASAP. Stardew Valley is a game that we believe can be enjoyed on the smaller screens, but that won't do it justice. There are so many little elements that you really don't want to miss just because you're playing on a smaller iPhone. Therefore, we'd strongly suggest you grab your iPad for this one.
You can tell it's summer vacation for most of the world, as Heads Up! is back on the charts. This is a mobile game that you can play in group, with your family, where one person holds the phone to their head and the rest need to try and explain what the words is on their head, while not saying that specific word. It's a really fun party game.
True Skate is the Official Street League Skateboarding game, which brings some quality to the app. This skateboarding app allows you to move your skateboard around, flicking the board, moving it around realistically, dragging your finger to push forward, and otherwise using physics to skate around. There are user challenges to take on and global leader boards to see how you are doing.
Curious to learn if this digital skateboard game is as good as it pertains to be? Then you better take a look at our True Skate review!
Geometry Dash is a simple, one button, rhythm-based action platformer that just ticks all of the boxes when it comes to a fun little platformer. There are a lot of challenges, so many dangers, jumping has to be done often, and more.
You can also build your own levels using an level editor - sharing what you create - which continues to add new content despite the game not having more official levels added for a while.
GTA: San Andres is such a good game that it was bound to hit the top 10 iOS charts sooner or later. In this game you have one of the best, most timeless adventures on mobile ever created. The graphics have received a major update, giving the game an absolutely stunning look, and the gameplay.... well you probably know a thing or two about it.
You're going to unfold a story full of crime, drugs and corruption, and if you think you're ready for what's to come, you should read our Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas review. You probably didn't see that coming!
A game with such a name would probably raise an eyebrow. Who wants to explode kittens... of all things?
Well, it's actually much more than that. Exploding Kittens is a multiplayer card game that basically takes Russian Roulette and adds kittens, goats, laser beans and big booms to it. Players have to draw cards until somebody gets the Exploding Kitten card. If they do, they're dead. Gone. Out. Game over. Unless they have a card to diffuse the Exploding Kitten, that is.
You can choose to play this locally with your friends, or adventure in the online world against other real-life players. It's super fun and it's no wonder it's made it into the top 10 iOS charts!
