A recent game my son and I found for the iPhone that’s pretty addicting is called Robotek. There is also an iPad version and even a version for your Mac. You start off with only one robot and you play against the computer who also has one robot. The first thing you do is spin three reels to see what kind of help you can get to defeat your opponent. There are also three different categories you can spin the reels in: little robots, defense & offense. Once you pick the category, you tap the green arrow and see what you get. If you spin three different images you get all three. If you spin two or three of the same image, you get that item at two or three times the strength. I like to start out with getting at least three robots. Then prepare a defense; then go on the attack. Between each spin there is a battle and it’s a fight to the death.
There are a lot of options in this game. You can add or increase strength to your robots; you can build a shield; you can hack and steal your opponents robots; you can drain your opponents robots powers; you can get extra weapons like lasers; microwave & electric shock; you can use the “special abilities” across the bottom of the screen like rapid fire, emergency repair, summon hero & nuke; and you can play with real people online or over your network.
Overall, a very addicting game that I would recommend for all your iOS devices!
