Top 10 Qi-Rated App Store Benchmark Games

Best of Apple's Benchmark Games on iPhone

Around this time last year, Apple published its Hall of Fame, a list of the 50 best apps available on the App Store. In The Big A's opinion.

In our infinite wisdom, we ranked these App Store Hall of Famers according to their respective Qi ratings, thus producing a 'best of the very best of the best' selection. And here it is.

This winter, however, those crazy Cupertino kids have decided to put the spotlight on a particular subset of iPhone games. "Benchmark Games", to be precise.

To explain: Tim Cook and co. have selected the 47 games they consider to set the benchmark for graphics, gameplay, controls, etc.

So, once again, we've carefully cross-referenced this fabulous 47 against our market-leading database to determine the Top 10 Qi-rated App Store Benchmark Games.

Check 'em out below. They're great!

(Please note that due to the dynamic nature of the Qi ratings and charts, this list is subject to change.)

This monochromatic marvel merges elements from some of the best physics-based games around, creating a unique experience that will leave your eyeballs swinging from their sockets in amazement.
