This was an excellent year for new gaming apps. With a new version of iOS around the corner and a new iPhone on the horizon, game designers have worked to create new mobile gaming apps that take advantage of the latest technology. This has led to numerous new game versions and today we take a look at some of the best gaming apps for the first half of 2013.
Need for Speed Most Wanted
Considered to be the best arcade racer, Need for Speed Most Wanted is incredibly fun and addictive, hurtling through the city, a policeman, drifting for miles and becoming a threat to society. The iPhone 5 or similar will be the best solution for this game as slower phones will cause lost frames, etc.
