Plants vs. Zombies
Do you know that planting seeds is the best way to fight zombies? Well, this is the best way in Plants vs. Zombies.
A stream of zombies is set to attack your house and the only way you can fight them off before they start eating your brains is to plant seeds in your yard. These aren’t ordinary seeds as they have the ability to shoot at the zombies or explode and killing a whole group of zombies.
The game is a bit more difficult than it seems to be as you need cash in order to plant the seeds. You start off by planting sunflower seeds that will give you the money to plant other plants that will fight the storm of zombies approaching.

Words with Friends
If you’re looking to engage in a long term game with your friends, then Words with Friends is a great way to keep in touch and at the same time sharpen your word forming skills.
The game is similar to scrabble and it uses the iPhone’s connectivity features so you can set up a game with several of your friends. You just need to remember that it may take days before one of your friends makes a move, so it would be best to remain patient and focus on your own game.
The best way to play the game is to make a move and then study the next tiles to play. Once you’re done, you can do other things and even forget about the game. Don’t because the game will notify you once another player has made their move or if it’s your turn to make a move again.
Each of these games is very addictive and they made it to the top of our list. There are other games out there that may have gotten you hooked to your iPhone for hours at a time and if you think that they should be included, let us know.
