Armor Games has brought its popular zombie RPG, Sonny to the Apple App Store. The classic Flash title has been "reimagined" for iOS with a new storyline and expanded gameplay, making it worth a look for both long-time fans and newcomers to the series. The game follows Sonny, who is killed on a boat during a zombie outbreak. He is saved after a scientist named Louis uses a special serum to help him retain his humanity. Sonny wakes up as a zombie with his mind intact but without his memories. His only connection to the world, Louis, is eventually killed by Zombie Pest Control Incorporated, and Sonny is left alone in a hostile world. Sonny must battle his way through paramilitary troops and other undead monstrosities to figure out the mystery behind his resurrection and to help save the world.

iPhoneFAQ.org is not a review site. While we do test apps and games for articles, and even write the occasional review, we do not cover enough games to declare the best overall releases to the App Store. This list is a collection of our favorite games that we have played over the last year. It is not a list of the best overall App Store releases for 2016. There are a lot of popular games we did not cover that most likely deserve the title of best App Store release. We will leave that decision to Apple and other gaming sites that play more games than we do.
