apple touch icon 2iOS gaming site (and sister site) TouchArcade has posted a roundup of their Best iOS Games for September 2012.

The list of games consists of the highest rated iOS games from just the month of September, and offers a variety of genres. Topping the list are a physics puzzler, matching puzzler, and a side-scrolling hack-and-slash game. The remainder of the list offers a similarly diverse list that may appeal to different types of gamers.

5 Stars

Bad Piggies

Bad Piggies, $0.99 / HD
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - A fantastically fresh spin on the Angry Birds formula, this time you play as the pigs and build various contraptions to reassemble your grand plan for stealing the eggs from the birds. This game is shockingly good, and shouldn't be missed. Sandbox mode, in particular, is incredible.

Super Monsters Ate My Condo!

Super Monsters Ate My Condo!, $0.99
[Review] [Forum Thread] - The original game was awesome, but this new Bejeweled Blitz-like spin on the formula cranks things up to 11. Two minute long games are hectic from start to finish, and if you're good, you can still pull off those insane scores that people loved bragging about in the original Monsters Ate My Condo.

God of Blades

God of Blades, $2.99
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - An incredibly unique game with art and sound design that's out of this world. It almost reminds us of Sword & Sworcery in a way in that the game is so artistic that the entire experience is something you don't see very often on the App Store. Definitely dig into our review.

4.5 Stars

Lili™

Lili™, $4.99
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - This Unreal engine powered game has a look at feel that is by far the most Nintendo-like I've seen on the App Store. Add a sword fighting mechanic and a Triforce, and it might pass for Zelda. The flower picking mechanic is a little weird, but it's easy to get into.

Rayman Jungle Run

Rayman Jungle Run, $2.99
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - When I first heard of this game, I rolled my eyes expecting another Temple Run clone. Instead, we got a platformer that is not only totally awesome but feels perfect on the iPhone.

Plight of the Zombie

Plight of the Zombie, $2.99
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - A really slick line drawing stealth game that puts the player in charge of moving zombies around various levels. If you're tired of zombie games, give this one a try, it feels really fresh compared to most mindless zombie games.

Super Hexagon

Super Hexagon, $0.99
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - This game has taken the TouchArcade crew by storm, with Jared and Arn fiercely competing on leaderboards with a few of our mutual Twitter followers. I'm not good enough at video games to make a good effort, but if you like very short very fast paced games, you need this one.

Splice : Tree of Life

Splice : Tree of Life, $3.99
[Review] - [Forum Thread] - Cipher Prime nails it again with an oddly obscure cellular puzzler. It started its life on the PC, but like all of their games, the iPad almost feels like Splice's natural home.

TouchArcade also lists their readers' top most anticipated games. Topping the list is Infinity Blade Dungeons, which was first previewed at Apple's iPad 3 media event in March, but hasn't yet been released.

Angry Birds has a storyline? lol To me it seems to be a case of, "pig eat my egg, I kill pig... THE END"
I think he means he wishes there were games with actual storylines as popular as simple casual games like Angry Birds.

I absolutely HATE Super Hexagon. After I bought it, I immediately assumed it was another one of those apps that only showed up at the top of the app store list due to scam-reviews. I couldn't imagine how ANYONE could think that game was fun. Now I'm really shocked to see it on this list. I thought it was one of the lowest quality games I'd ever played on the iPhone, and it was very boring and simplistic to boot. But I guess people really do like that sort of thing... Again, I'm shocked. I would definitely not recommend Super Hexagon.

I've got to 91 seconds on the starting level. I loved it.

I don't think boring is a good description. I can see how some people might not like it but more because its very hard.

wasn't that supposed to be released ages ago

oh and I love that toucharcade doesn't put the price of the HD Bad Piggies (it ain't $0.99) almost as much as how I love that Roxio won't do universal apps. And I'm sure in a few weeks they will release their Bad Piggies Seasons Level Pack as another app so they can try to rule the charts even more. Tacky move that I wish Apple had never allowed (same with Cut the Rope, Where's My and others that try the same stunt)
I agree, honestly my fav game is amazing breaker.....3 starred every level available lol. I haven't played angry birds since it first came out and don't plan on buying bad piggies. I'll stick with amazing breaker, jet pack joyride, infinity blade, and free music dload....:D
