The Best Seller Iphone Games



"The survival of the Angry Birds is at stake. Dish out revenge on the green pigs who stole the Birds’ eggs. Use the unique destructive powers of the Angry Birds to lay waste to the pigs’ fortified castles. Angry Birds features hours of gameplay, challenging physics-based castle demolition, and lots of replay value. Each of the 210 levels requires logic, skill, and brute force to crush the enemy."

     Here we go. One of the best seller games on App store. when it realized on App store nobody could predict what a massive succes it will have. In 8 months it reached about 5 million sales mark. It was just a simple 2D physics puzzler's. I met this game when I was in a work travel in China and enjoyed playing this game. One of my friends was playing it and I got really curious about the game because it was colorful, cute and succesful game. It was the second game effected me after "Plantz vs zombies". Anyway I found a small article about this game and saw a little discuss about the game made by the game's comanie's CEO Mikael Hed. I want to share this with you and make u notice there is nothing impossible.

"GP: What is it exactly about Angry Birds that appeals to so many people across the world?

MH: We originally made it for the iPhone, and we wanted to make a game that uses the touch screen. One of the criteria was that it had to be expandable so we could bring it to the iPhone and other platforms. There's this old wisdom: It has to be easy to pick up and play but hard to master. The "easy to learn" part was really important to us. When you see one screenshot of the game you know what you have to do. Angry Birds is simple, but it still has depth. It has to be so much fun that players want to return to the game over and over again. Angry Birds achieved precisely that.
We get a lot of fan mail. One of our 23 people on staff just answers fan mail, and that's all he does. Once in a while we get something that's really special and we send it around. We like to interact with our fans -- it's really rewarding. A mother of a five-year-old boy sent us some scans, saying that her son had drawn a level for the game, and we actually put the level in the game via an update. Kids often send in drawings of the characters. There's one kid who actually built a castle for the pigs and it's on YouTube where he has this live Angry Birds game."

You should try playing this game. very enjoyable and challenging game.  

This game gave me some idea about the game I was going to develop for Iphone. I noticed that people like simple puzzle games lets you control everything by touching and sliding your finger over screen. This has been my first tip. I do not need to create 3D and complex game at first.

"A mysterious package has arrived, and the creature inside has only one request…CANDY! Help get the candy to Om Nom, the adorable monster, in this highly innovative and addictive puzzle game. Combining outstanding physics, devilishly tricky levels, and bright colorful visuals, Cut the Rope is one of the most original and fun-filled games on the App Store."

When I was digging around to get some idea to develop a game I met "Cut The Rope" it was an easy and cute game. Graphics were almost perfect and I loved the rope component in the game. Great physics was implemented to game and the performance was good. This game also gave me so much idea about the game I was planning to develop.   

I had no free time one day. I had some tasks to do but I wanted to know which games were best sellers game on apple world and I made a quick search. I downloaded that game - Wish I wouldnt that time - suddenly I stock on the game and couldnt leave it. I played whole the levels in 1 hour and finished the game. Then I noticed that I need to implement this kind of puzzle game. It knocks the people to iphone. I spend my valuable time bu I did not regret.

Everyone knows this game. Everone is a fan of this game. But to be clear it was really hard for me to play this game on Iphone. Maybe on Ipad it would be better. But anyway it has the name and everything else to be a great game. Graphics, performance, fun... But it was out of my development scope to check information about my game. 

"Now celebrating over 100-million paid downloads on mobile! Discover why millions of players around the world have made the TETRIS® game one of the biggest blockbusters in mobile gaming history.

Enjoy Classic Marathon mode, slide, rotate & drop your tetriminos into place with touchscreen controls.

No doubt... The best Puzzle game for all times. I remember the first time I had a tetris. It was one of my happiest moments in my life. Still I am enjoying to play this game and I can easily say noone can say any negative word for this game.

"Fruit Ninja is a juicy action game enjoyed by millions of players around the world, with squishy, splatty and satisfying fruit carnage! Become the ultimate bringer of sweet, tasty destruction with every slash."

Perfect.. one word and it is perfect.. This game actually saved my life. when ever I get bored this game helped me out too much. Any one who plays this game can see what abilities an Iphone have. perfect touching mechanism and perfect graphics.. endless fun. 

First time I saw this game.. Yes I remember.. My girlfriend was playing it. She use to keep showing me the high scores she had. I still couldnt reach the scores she had but I am trying.
thank you Fruit Ninja.. 


"In Doodle Jump, you guide Doodle the Doodler—using some of the most subtle and accurate tilt controls in existence—on a springy journey up, up, up a sheet of graph paper, picking up jet packs, avoiding black holes, and blasting baddies with nose balls along the way.

Laugh with delight as Doodle™ blows past other players' actual score markers scribbled in the margins. And be warned: this game is insanely addictive."

One of my best friends' one of best games. I loved the graphics and the idea but I couldnt get much time to play this game seriously. Of course I played but I need to play it more carefully. It seems like a simple game but the idea is perfect. 


"A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home. Use your arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants — peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more — to mulchify 26 types of zombies before they break down your door."

Plants vs. Zombies. My first game but still one of my favourite games. When I got my iphone this was the first game I played on it. So it has many memories on me. it is a very enjoyable game and very colorful. Everything on it is pretty discussed before developing and the graphics are so cool. If I make a list of the games this game will be at top. 

So I collected information from these games before I develop my own game and got some cool ideas. I now finished developing the game. I am trying to put it on App Store. But because of christmas Itunes connect is closed. So I have time to get my items ready before I put my game on App Store.

The next title will be about my game and I can share a small video maybe to show how my game works.

I will keep informing my friends and people who are interested in game world and my game from here.


  1. How long does it take to develop a game?

  2. Hi Friend,

    @Murat: It depends on how much you work for it. You should have patient and passion. I developed my game in about one month.

  3. PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES , that game was my only friend during the long and boring workdays . Also maybe one of the factors that i m fired from my last job :)
    Also waiting for you game on App Store though i don't have any device to play it :)

  4. @burak: many of us love Plants vs. Zombies. I can port my game to android if I have time to. Then you can play it for free :)

    Hope you dont get fired from your current job because of a game..:)
