    Puzzle games are well suited to the iPhone for a few simple reasons:

    1. They don’t need to have high quality graphics to be entertaining

    2. They rarely require a big screen to show you the whole picture

    3. They are great for casual gamers and even non-gamers who have a few spare moments. Simple to learn, addictive and hard to master

    The only catch is that while there are a lot of great games for the iPhone there owe also a lot of really ill designed and outright bad games too. Since no one wants to waste their time on those games we have compiled a list of the 10 best puzzle games for your iPhone.

    Now, that you have some options go ahead and start downloading. Just be aware that if you want to be able to get any work done after you download them you may want to put them on the second screen. Otherwise that quick check of your email could take a lot longer than you think.
