We have compiled a list of gaming applications for iPhone and iPad, among which you will surely find suitable entertainment.
It’s worth starting with simple arcade games that do not require training and specific skills. Before us is a simulator of the popular board game “Air Hockey”, in which two people take part.

Unfortunately, the game is not translated into Russian (English).

Immediately after its release in the App Store, the game was also very popular, but the monotonous gameplay did not allow the developers to develop the idea further. However, you can add fun to Tiny Wings by installing it on your iPad.

A console puzzle ported to iOS in 2018 and has already received a lot of positive feedback from gamers.

Death Squared Review…

As the name suggests, the game is a duel between otters, which means that there are at least two players and two otters. Duel Otters consists of 11 mini-arcades, and competitions in the main mode take place in the “best of 5” format, that is, the victory in the match is awarded to the player who wins in three games out of five. Only two users can play simultaneously on one iPhone or iPad, but in general, the competition can be held according to the Olympic system until the best of the company is identified.
Duel Otters is an app designed for kids, so the games are very simple and in most cases only require one finger to operate. This is a simple air hockey, a primitive mixture of baseball and tennis, towns, etc. If you need to distract two or more children for a while, then Duel Otters may well cope with this task, provided that you have at least one smartphone or tablet.

A very popular and addicting game for both single player and online multiplayer. The gameplay is a turn-based duel-shootout between two characters, each of which has the goal of hitting the enemy, calculating the force and trajectory of the throw or shot.
The trick is that the game is made with a fair amount of humor, and each of the 60+ characters is interesting in its own way, has its own weapon and unique fatality. For example, a dead cosmonaut Gorsky can throw a somewhat veiled USSR flag at the enemy, and as a fatality lands on the opponent’s head a likeness of the Soviet satellite Luna-1.
Download Bowmasters for iPhone and iPad (App Store)
The gameplay is in many ways similar to Bowmasters (the same developer, Playgendary) and is painfully familiar to all fans of Pocket Tanks and other similar games. The battle takes place between two tanks with a certain set of different charges, from an ordinary explosive to an atomic bomb, the location is a destructible random relief that can be used to gain an advantage (it is much easier to destroy an enemy stuck in a ravine than hiding behind a steep rock).
