1. Fairy Tails for iPad and iPhone
So where are the fight sequences with demons and nemesis of similar sorts? This game from TiniDreamStudios is a sort of tribute to the “fairy” side of Fairy Tail for a change since it is all about breeding animals (monkey, flamingo, kangaroo, etc.) and tending to entire forests. Not trees, but forests and entire habitats for the animals. Taking care of the exotic fauna has great rewards. They show off antics that make you laugh, and they lead you to other animals more exotic than they are (Unicorns? Griffins? Dragons perhaps?). This game is especially formulated for the iPad, iPod3 and iPhone 3 and an iOS 4.0 at the least. And the best thing is it’s free and does not come with adverts.
