10 Most Exciting Arcade Games for the iPhone

Mobile gaming has come a long way in recent years, with the industry now providing serious competition to consoles and PC for market dominance. The substantial number of people across the world who own a mobile phone, combined with a growing network of independent and leading developers who have the technology at their disposal to create innovative titles, continue to provide iPhone users with a wide range of downloadable game apps that cater for people of all ages and gender. Being able to access the internet via WiFi or 4G also opens up a world of online gaming where a host of browser-based games, such as playing a few hands of cards on MrSmithCasino, are merely just a button away, but there are a number of arcade games that everyone should play.

It is certainly bold for a game to calls itself one of the hardest in the world to take on, but Tap Tap Dash is difficult and addictive in equal measure.
