Here's a list of Apple TV launch games worth checking out
|

The Apple TV is out, which means you can finally play some iOS games on a big screen.

But you can't play any old iOS game. Oh no, there's a selection available on the Apple TV store for you to choose from.

And while we do know about quite a few of the games coming to Apple TV, not all of them are available right now.

So, what we have here for you, is an incomplete list of Apple TV games you can play at launch. Yes, right now.
We've also provided links to our review of the mobile versions of these games where applicable. We should have impressions of the Apple TV versions soon.

Check out the list below. It's a pretty good selection.
