Gameloft is probably the most popular, as also the most impressive, game developer for the iPhone.

Known for creating several oft-played games such as Bejeweled, Puzzle Bobble and Brain Age, Gameloft has also been releasing regular updates on classics such as Uno, Breakout, Battleships and many of its iPod games as well.

Gameloft’s masterpiece is indisputably the Platinum Sudoku, which is also quite reasonably priced.

Gameloft is one developer that has made and continues to make a huge contribution to Apple’s gaming apps.

PopCap Games

PopCap Games is admittedly not as good as, say, Gameloft. But there are some reasons why they are being included in this list. Their Bejeweled and Bejeweled 2 cost way too much, but they do contain good graphics too, which does look impressive enough.

Their game, Peggle, was probably the most impressive Click Wheel iPod game ever made. There is also Peggle 2 now, so we are expecting them to come out with further interesting releases in the future.
