1 – FIFA Soccer 12:
Developed by EA, FIFA Soccer 12 brings the action of your favorite sport right to your phone’s touchscreen. Featuring vibrant graphics, ultra realistic animations and responsive controls, the app comes with the Manager Mode which lets you manage a club of your own by trading players, upgrading staff and more.
And as this entrant in our roster has more than 22 officially licensed leagues and over 500 licensed teams to its credit, you can take to the field with or against some of the biggest names. It even takes full advantage of your smartphone’s touchscreen to include responsive control schemes, making it even more realistic, while allowing you to face up to daily challenges and experience match day madness.
This classic arcade title requires you to sink balls into the basket within a stipulated time. The ‘personalizable’ offering comes with 8 skins and lets you choose from 3 different modes – classic, progressive and 3-point.
And as it connects with Facebook, you can brag about your high scores and achievements and even challenge your friends to beat your scores. Additionally, you can have your music in the background and get your high scores listed on Game Center.
3 – Super Stickman Golf:
Playing alone tends to get a little boring, and it looks like the makers of the next app in our lineup understand that. They have added multiplayer support for the application and give you the option to play online against random players or locally with your friends.
And do not be under the impression that it is just another golf dedication. If these developers are to be believed, the title is a physics puzzler and boasts of unlockable super clubs, close to 260 unique holes as well as obstacles such as conveyor belts.
4 – Hit Tennis 3:
A sequel to Hit Tennis 2, the third edition of the title is said to be even better than the previous version. It does feel like real tennis, the only difference being that you have to make use of gestures like swipe and flick to hit the ball.
Add to it enhanced visuals and advanced graphics that tempt you to take on even more opponents and progress to higher levels in 3 locations.
5 – 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2011 Free:
Designed for all those who are huge baseball fans, 9 Innings allows you to compete with 30 major league teams and over 800 actual players from around the world. You can also have your own team that you will have to manage in order to win various championships.

So you cannot do without your daily dose of cricket? No worries, as this application in our array will help you enjoy it just about anywhere you want. You really need to be careful about shot selection and timing in order to hit the ball against some of the best bowlers from around the globe.
You can enjoy 2-player matches against upgraded opponents over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and even share you high scores with friends over social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter.
7 – 3D Badminton II:
The easy and fun gameplay as well as 3D visuals make 3D Badminton II worth a try. Naturally, your finger is your racket for this touch-based app and all you have to do to smash that shuttle cock is gently flick your finger on the Retina display.
An upward flick lets you play drop spike, while its downward counterpart is for the smash shot. There are four difficulty levels for you to master.
8 – Virtual Table Tennis 2: Ping Pong Online:
Apparently, the only 3D title in the App Store that offers online multiplayer for table tennis is Virtual Table Tennis 2 which graces our queue. You can take advantage of the multiplayer feature over the internet or via Bluetooth to bring ping pong to life right on your iOS device.
It boasts of an AI design based on human behavior and accurate controls which can even be adjusted through the app’s options menu. The application comes with various modes and integrates Facebook and Twitter support too.
9 – Extreme Skater Blitz:
It really doesn’t matter if you aren’t an exceptional skater in real life. You can go on to be a great virtual one. Skateboarding with a twist, the app requires you to skate your way through hills and forests to collect meteor fragments strewn across these locations.
You get to unleash your full potential on various paths in multiple levels, thanks to the app’s accurate tilt controls. Additionally, you can unlock tricks, boards and characters as you progress and become an extreme skater by completing all your objectives.
