Top 5 Difficult Games on iPhone

Best ways to take a beating on iPhone

Mobile games are all super-easy, throwaway fluff aimed at the casual crowd, right? Wrong.

There are some truly tricky games available for your iPhone. Games that will leave you testing the limits of your affection for (not to mention the durability of) your £600 smartphone.

These Top 5 difficult games on iPhone may be tough, but you'll keep coming back for more. We guarantee.

Those of you with high blood pressure should probably give these a miss, though.

Wayward Souls is a roguelike action-RPG that's been designed to kill you again and again. It's only through starting afresh with greater resources and more experience that you'll be able to push on slightly farther than before. Brutal.

Vlambeer's fiendish stroke of genius here is that the only way you can progress is to deliberately make life more difficult for yourself. You must collect randomly spawning weapon crates to accrue points, but there's no telling how well you'll be armed to take on the ruthlessly swelling hordes.

The clue's kind of in the name here. The Impossible Game isn't about winning; it's about losing a little better. There are no checkpoints or extra lives in this punishing endless-runner. Just defeats.
