Unlike most of the other top 25 lists we assemble here on Pocketgamer, 'multiplayer' isn't a genre. Rather it's a mode of play that can be found in virtually any genre.
Picking 25 of the best multiplayer games on iOS is quite a wide remit, then. Especially when you consider that multiplayer can mean shared-handset, local multi-handset, and online.
What we've gone for, then, is a varied list of games that's hopefully somewhat representative of all the different multiplayer experiences you can have on iOS.
All share a single thing in common - they're all an absolute hoot to play with other people.
