The 12 best iPhone and iPad puzzle games

You probably know Lara Croft from the epic and exciting Tomb Raider games on consoles and PC, but Lara Croft Go ($5) sends the iconic adventurer on a new kind of voyage—a puzzling one. Here, Croft must overcome a series of environmental challenges, as each level finds you moving her space to space as you dodge trips, vault over obstacles, and even take down some enemies.

Despite the slower pace, new look, and change in perspective, what’s surprisingly satisfying about Lara Croft Go is how much it retains the tone of the original source material. And thanks to updates, there’s plenty here, with more than 115 puzzles in play. Also, if you dig this one, be sure to play its sister games, Deus Ex Go and Hitman Go.
