I've been toying with Sky Force, but I'm really not good at the game. That's probably what has prevented the game from getting its dirty hooks into me.
It has an old school feel to it.  I think that's what keeps pulling me in.  It's not easy.  When I upgraded to Wing Cannons, and then Missiles, it got noticably easier.  I think we're meant to go back and replay earlier levels after upgrades to unlock more medals (and earn more stars).  I'm still impressed with the graphics.  It's one of the best looking games that I have on the iPad.    

I actually haven't even played anything but the first level!

The completionist in me wants to get all of those shiny trophies (for saving all the guys, shooting all the guys, not getting hit by the guys and something else guy-related) which increase multipliers.  I just got the shoot all the guys one, which leaves me with not getting hit and I've done them all, then level 2!

I've been playing quite a bit of this as well.  SHUMP's are typically not my thing, but this one is lots of fun...even if I'm terrible at it.  I've finished the first 4 missions, plus a couple of the "hard" versions that unlock after you get all the trophies for the regular stage.  Upgrades are definitely the key.  I've got my health and main cannon fully upgraded, and missiles, wing cannons, and magnet are all leveled about halfway (buying the X2 star booster helped).  They make a huge difference.

Finding that one postage stamp sized spot on the board that isn't filled with flaming death can be a challenge, but it's rather exhilarating when you do.  smile

The Banner Saga coming to tablets this summer

Quote
Stoic's viking-themed tactical role-playing game, The Banner Saga, is coming to iOS and Android tablet devices this summer, publisher Versus Evil announced.

The tablet version of the game will be exactly the same as the full Mac and Windows PC version, which launched in January this year. The controls have been optimized for touch and swipe inputs

I tried 3-4 times to get into Banner Saga on PC, and it just never clicked.  It's a game that I really want to like though...a big part of the problem was that I was simply distracted by other stuff.  Hopefully an iOS version that I can dedicate some time to on long flights will be a good solution.

I have been playing 99 Bricks Wizardy Academy a lot. It's Tetris without the walls to hold it together so you need to really pay attention to getting everything intergrated and not leaving too many empty spots. You do have to grind a bit for the power ups and the controls can be awkward, but it's a lot if fun. If you like Tetris, you will like this.

Deadpool table for Zen Pinball dropped this morning.  Played 6 games...it's rather underwhelming and surprisingly dull.

Fates Forever is f2p mobs that seems at first glance to pretty much be iOS lol.  High production values and good controls

Age of Booty, Tactics as well as Cards and Castles are both very well done turn based games that have card based mechanics to them.  Between Fates Forever and these two I've had a fun mobile weekend.

I ultimately decided it wasn't for me, but iOS just got a new Monster Hunter release which seems to be pretty well received.

Everyone (ios sites) seems to be excited about Monster Hunter.  I am not huge on games that kind of require multiplayer to really get the full fun from the game but I can see my kids loving it if they played with friends.

Shocking, TA gives a 5 star review to a big name game. icon_lol I expect no less from them. I am sure it's good, just not my type of game.

I got Monster Hunter, seems like it could be a blast, but for me the touch controls just aren't good enough.  will try again once I can find a sub $50 ipad controller.

If you like Monument Valley, you may love...

A nice write up by pocket gamer of games like Monument Valley which I thought was pretty great.  I will be checking out a few of them.
