Top 5 Pass-And-Play Games for iPhone

Best of the hotseat multiplayer games on iPhone

Sometimes, the Qi heart craves for more simple pleasures... For as much fun as playing against Chad on the other side of the world undeniably is, we'd never have got this far without the basic appeal of offline multiplayer.

Few can deny the delights of cramming three friends around your gadget for some fist-waving, frustration-laden, old skool pass-the-handset action, but which are the best hotseat games on iPhone?

Fortunately, Qi has the answer in this rundown of the Top 5 pass-and-play games on iPhone.

And what an ultra-competitive field it is: no room for the old warhorses Monopoly, Scrabble, Game of Life, or Jenga. Geronimoooooooooooooo!!!

Recently updated with the ace Peggle Nights expansion pack, PopCap's puzzling phenomenon is perfect for local duels. Launch your ball with pinpoint accuracy, then sit back and admire the stylish / jammy ricochets, as pegs disappear left, right, and left again.

The premise behind the award-winning Carcassonne is straightforward: build a medieval landscape (tile by tile), claim landmarks with your followers, and score points. Bam! Rather annoyingly, though, other players are out to do the same. Hmmmmph.

Instead of inviting you to get behind the wheel of a souped-up supercar and steer your way to the chequered flag, RedLynx challenges you and a buddy to draw - yes, draw - an impeccable racing line. Speed is governed by the force of your sketching finger, lending new meaning to the phrase 'slippery turns'.

The premise behind the award... Ahh, now with Redwind Software's best in class anti-repetition question tech powering Movie Challenge, there's little danger of two brainteasers on Crash surfacing in quick succession to fox the family. If you do happen to exhaust the 5,500 posers over Xmas, purchase a few more via the app. Crash was directed by Paul Haggis, by the way.

Otherwise known as Four Up, Plot Four, Find Four, Four in a Row, and Four in a Line, EA's iPhone version of this pass 'n' play favourite includes Classic, Challenge, and Advanced modes. Of most import, mind, is the drop-tastic multiplayer fare. Just remember: always start in the middle column. It's basic maths.
