2. Spin Sports
Spin Sports is a multi-player arcade-style game that lets you play with up to six people. Now, this may sound odd but each player can control their character with just one button, and two players have to share the same remote and other players can connect with a Mfi controller, this essentially makes the game more fun.

3. Asphalt 8
I have always been a fan of racing games and lately, the games have become so good in terms of Graphics that Asphalt 8 just deserves a spot for just that. This game challenges you to perform dynamic, high-speed aerial stunts in an intense driving experience powered by a brand-new physics engine. You’ll hit the ramps, taking the race upward as you perform barrel rolls and wild 360-degree jumps. With more than 95 performance cars, you’ll maneuver through the air while pulling off stunts.

The objective is to stay alive and kill zombies in an apocalyptic world. You gain XP and rewards as you level up the game or you can purchase additional stuff with in-app purchases.

5. Modern Combat 5
MC5 is a fast-paced single-player FPS, which offers campaign along with the excellent multiplayer action. You can choose from a variety of specialist classes, and unlock awesome weaponry. The single-player campaign takes you from Venice to Tokyo, and multiplayer mode has just as much variety. As you would expect from a big gun MC5 is a perfect bundle of high-end graphics with an engaging story and a lasting adrenaline rush. The only thing which bugs me is –Gameloft No Longer Supporting Modern Combat 5 on Apple TV, that said the app still works fine at the moment.

6. Hit Tennis 3
Hit Tennis is a digital Tennis game which you can play on your Apple TV. You can battle opponents in 24 different tournaments in fun locations across the globe. The app works with the Siri Remote and works quite like the Wii remote. The game utilizes the Siri remote sensors (accelerometer and gyroscope), meaning you can hit the ball back and forth and even change the angle of your shot based on how you swing the Siri remote.

7. Angry Birds Go
Downhill racing has come to Piggy Island, and this time Angry Birds are in on the action. You can Tear down the track at breakneck speeds in Angry Birds Go, quite a thrilling race to the finish this one. You can unlock characters and karts, challenging your friends and foes alike on the global leaderboards and has local multiplayer gaming. It’s like Mario Kart but with birds. Some very Angry Birds.

8. Lego Batman movie game
Its the official Lego Batman game made by Warner Brothers. It might seem like a shameless endless runner with Batman in it. But its actually quite good. The fun element that does stand out is the beatboxing mechanic every time you crash. You need to time the notes to get back to the main game, which is as Lego Batman as it can get. It really gets into the spirit of the movie and turns into enjoyable gameplay.

9. Rayman’s Adventures
Its the Ubisoft’s Mario if you will, its no contender for something like Rayman Legends. Rayman Adventures is a fun yet challenging platformer like its big brother legends. It has about 140 levels even though there might be some repetition, it’s a romp none the less.

10. Dan the Man
Dan the Man is an arcade game that embodies the retro classics. Don’t let the pixelated animation and old school graphics fool you, it is a fun game with an inappropriate(at times) hero trying to save the world. The gameplay has a lighthearted storyline where you level up and beat up different bosses. As you level up your fight skills improve and arsenal expands. You can play the story mode, endless mode, and the boss mode which are all equally exciting but I prefer the story mode. Dan the Man is free on the App Store and comes with in-app purchases.

You’re outrunning an exploding star in a spaceship that is falling apart with teammates who are really stupid. Welcome to Spaceteam, your aim is to play the game with your friends and try to fix the ship before it is engulfed by the supernova. The best part of the game is that everyone can use their own iPhone as a controller and get in on the fun. You will receive instructions on how to fix your side of the ship on the phone and you will have to coordinate with your friends. It’s ridiculously entertaining, even more, if your friends can take some criticism.
