Your phone is the perfect tool for productivity; it can take notes, access documents, and help you stay connected with what matters. But, if you’re like us, you also value a phone because it can provide an escape. And what better way to do that than by playing games? We already revealed some of the games we’re playing over on Android, so we decided to make a similar list for iOS.

Below you can find the list of the game mentioned in the video above, along with direct links to where they reside in the iOS App Store. There’s a little something for everyone, from racers to puzzlers. Of course, our list isn’t thoroughly representative of what else you can find on iOS, so if there’s anything you think we have to try out, let us know in the comments below. I can already say that Threes is something I’d recommend.

Go ahead, sit back and unwind a little. I know phones are meant to communicate and be a link between you and getting stuff done. But it’s no fun to always have that productivity mentality, so why not utilize your phone or tablet for something good, clean gaming? If you enjoy recommendation videos like this, let us know and we’ll think of more ideas.

Last Voyage (iTunes)

Last Voyage is a game about space that is not about spaceships but rather what lies beyond our culture and technology. A game where you don’t master a single task but rather explore a range of concepts. As a result, the levels are sometimes mysterious, and other times very direct.
