With a few ties, this week we actually have 6 iOS games for you. Kicking it off with a 92 AppScore is Fieldrunners 2 HD - it's the iPad version of the sequel to one of the best tower defense games of all time, trust me, I've spent a lot of time playing the first version. In second is Drop Out Adventures HD - with an 88 AppScore it's a pretty cool physics puzzler. We have two games tied for third with an 85 AppScore: Big Business HD is a freemium city / empire building game and Apocalypse Max: Better Dead Than Undead is a zombie thrashing platformer. Finally, tied for fifth with an 83 AppScore are Lich Defense, which is a tower defense game that kind of feels like Warcraft, and Retrobot, which is a shooter that takes place in a comic book - pretty unique. So there you go, 6 more iPhone and iPad games to brighten your day (and ours). Of course we'd love to hear what you think so let us know in the comments below.
