While no such list can be complete, let's try to list the best free games for iPhone and also iPad, of different genres, all of them to download for free from the Apple App Store, also including someone less popular to be discovered, who really deserve to be played at least once.
1) Clash Royale is one of the best games released in 2016, a real-time strategy game and also a collectible card game that once started you can't stop. The only flaw is that it becomes difficult to resist not spending money on in-game purchases, even if, with patience, you can play and be competitive even without spending a penny. Clash Royale, from the same developers as Clash of Clans, is always at the top of the popularity charts on the Apple store.
2) Subway Surfers it is, on the other hand, an evergreen, a game that never ceases to tire, which is often renewed, leading players to new challenges. This is now the acclaimed number one of the games in the Runner Game genre, those where you run forward without ever stopping, trying to avoid obstacles and collect bonuses.
3 and 4) Head basketball e Head Soccer are two similar games by the same developer, among the funniest ever, because they are not football and basketball simulations, but arcade games that we could classify as fighting games. In both there is a one-on-one challenge, between two big-headed characters who fight each other by hitting each other and jumping in a scenario with a 2D horizontal view as in the barrel games of the past. The goal is to score or make a basket in the opponent's goal or basket, while trying to defend one's own goal or basket. There are special moves and it is also possible to play online against other people.
5) Flip Diving is a really fun and realistic diving game, where you have to try to dive into the water by doing the best stunts and entering the water correctly, without hitting your belly. Great graphics and ease of play are the features that have made this one of the best free games for iPhone.
6) Magic Tiles 3: Piano Game is the game where you have to play songs and music trying to hit the keys exactly at the right time. A little in the style of Guitar Hero, in Piano Tiles it is important to follow the rhythm by hitting the right notes indicated on the screen to score as many points as possible.
7) Dream League Soccer it is, for me, the best football game on iPhone and iPad, perhaps less beautiful to look at than the various FIFAs, but certainly more playable and fun, not only playing alone, but above all by challenging other players online around the world.
8) Walking Dead is the best graphic adventure game for iPhone, unfortunately free only in its first episode, which however is not to be missed. Both fans of the TV series and those who have never seen it can play Walking Dead, because the story is all new and has no connection with the show, if not that of the massive presence of zombies.
9) Asphalt 9 Legends is the best free car racing game, truly spectacular in graphics and speed, with tons of cars to drive in city paths in the Fast And Furious genre.
10 ) Traffic Rider is the best motorcycle racing game for mobile, in 3D, with fantastic graphics and rendered perfect on the iPhone.

If you like the genre, you can't miss it Flappy Golf 2 (by the same developers), a variant of mini golf that is played by making the ball fly by touching the screen (as happened in the unforgettable Flappy Birds).
