The iPad Pro is a great gaming device, but finding the right games in the over-crowded AppStore can prove quite a challenge. Below you’ll find the result of many hours of searching for great console-quality games. These games are all one-time-purchase and don’t depend on in-app-purchases. The only games with in-app-purchases in this list are games that offer the first part of the game for free and unlock the full game after an IAP, so still a one-time-purchase.

Obviously these games will work on a normal iPad as well. Most of them will even run on an iPhone.

Enjoy!

Thimbleweed Park

Since Thimbleweed Park is from the makers of the epic classic Monkey Island games, expectations were high for this game. I was not disappointed. The game is very well designed, has the right amount of humor and a great story. Absolute must have.

Grid Autosport

Grid autosport is as good as it gets for a racing game on the iPad Pro. The only thing I turned off right away was the deadzone in the steering. (Settings -> Grid Autosport).

Papers Please

In this game you are a border official. The only thing you have to do is check the papers of people passing the border. Although this might seem boring (and maybe it is), the game is so great at setting the right atmosphere that it really lets you experience the socialist soviet union era.
