Since this is the first iOS Watch List of 2013, we've got a few games to catch up on!
First up is Joe Danger Touch! Developed by the same folks that made the console versions, this iOS remake includes content from both Joe Danger titles, as well as host of touch-specific features. For example, you no longer have to hunt for letters throughout each of the maps. Instead, you an let your fingers do the walking.
Next we have Noble Nutlings, a free-to-play racer made by former Rovio team members. The game has you using tilt controls to pilot a merry band of squirrels through a few dozen levels. Most interesting are the customization features, letting you change the wheels and chasis of your vehicle for a very different feel.
And lastly we have Hundreds, a puzzle game that is both devious and ingenious. The objective is simple: tap circles to increase their values until you have at least 100 points on screen. As you tap them, though, the circles increase in size, making it harder and harder to find space to manuever. Toss in a weird, Portal-y art style and sense of mystery and you have one of the more intriguing iOS games around.
