However, the following five gaming apps are not only worth the money, but worth your time as well; these games can stand among the best video games, regardless of the system they are on.

Best Five Mobile Gaming Apps of 2012

1. Temple Run

Top 5 Mobile Games of 2012 - Temple Run

Temple Run, developed by Imangi Studios, takes the top spot on the list due to the fact that not only is it a great game, but that it's also the only game on this list that is free. While most free mobile gaming apps aren't worth the download, Temple Run is the shining exception to this rule.

As your character automatically runs through the temple, you must slide, jump and turn to overcome all obstacles in your path. To increase replay value, you can collect coins during each run to buy power-ups and extra characters from the shop. Even though Temple Run uses both touch and tilt controls, both work flawlessly. Reserve a permanent spot on your iPhone and Android for Temple Runbecause once you install it, you won't want to remove it.

Angry Birds Space retains the same gameplay that made Angry Birds famous, but now adds gravity to the mix. Each level has its own gravitational field, with many levels relying not only on your aim, but your manipulation of the gravitational pull of the field, to defeat the pigs. Angry Birds Space< also includes the Danger Zone, a set of levels that Rovio calls that hardest Angry Birds levels ever created.
