Top 10 Games You Must Try on Your iPhone
Though not a hard-core gaming device, your iPhone can be the perfect way to get into some serious gaming. Whether it is to while away time or scheduling a gaming session with your friends, there is no dearth of games to be played on the iPhone. The phone packs in the right specs to enable playing even the most challenging games with élan, enough to please even the most passionate gamers.
For instance, the latest iPhone 11 comes powered with an A13 Bionic chip which boasts of a 20 percent performance improvement while still being easy on the battery. The iPhone 11 series also comes with a quad core Apple GPU. Add to that the 4 GB RAM and you have one of the most potent gaming devices at hand.
The brilliant 6.5-inch Super Retina XDR OLED panel on the iPhone 11 Pro Max is another reason you will be drawn to playing games on the device. The 3969 mAh battery also ensures enough juice to sail you through an entire day of normal usage. Plus, the accelerometer and gyro on the iPhone is easily the most sensitive as compared to its competitors, making it a great gaming device where you use the orientation of the phone as a means of input.
Additionally, with the launch of Apple Arcade, the company now offers an assortment of top games on a subscription plan. You can access over 100 games available via the plan that are exclusive to the platform. The games will not be available anywhere else and will not be up for purchase either. You’ll have to shell $4.99 that you have to pay every month which is inclusive of Family Sharing.
There are lots of games available for those who aren’t Arcade members yet. Here is a list of some of the most loved games available on for iPhone users.
PUBG is easily one of the most popular iOS games right now. You get to fight with other players to seek area dominance and also have the option to team up with others in your endeavour. Also, much like the dystopian Hunger Games, you start with nothing and will have to kill others to loot their weapons and ammunitions. And this is where the thrill begins as you aim to be the last man standing on the island.
This is another game of the battle royale genre. Slightly similar to PUBG in its premise, there are 100 players who are let loose and the last gamer surviving is the winner. You never know when that all-important bullet is being aimed at you as you set out to obliterate others. You can even do all of this while escaping the hellish rage of none other than Thanos himself in a limited-time event in the game. No wonder this has been among the top-ranking iOS games ever since it has been launched.
Call of Duty: Mobile was launched in response to the growing popularity of PUBG; and the move paid off what with the game seeing almost 150 million downloads within the first month of its launch. The graphics are stunning and the controls are positioned for easy reach. The game can be played in first-person and third-person shooter mode as your team sets out to kill other teams to reach the coveted 50-point mark to emerge a winner.
4. Mario Kart
It is a fun game and will put your alertness and reflexes to the test as you sail through unexpected situations thrown at you. This fun game is a great stress reliever with a simple interface and easy to manoeuvre characters. Unfortunately, the developers have been finding it hard to monetize the game effectively without robbing it off of the fun factor. This is why it’s a great game if you’re only playing to have a good time.
However, if you are hoping to win top honours, you will have to spend on the right racer or kart irrespective of whether you win first place or not.
5. Plague Inc
It’s a game that brings out your darker side as you set out to destroy the population of the entire world by unleashing a deadly virus you have created. This is a strategy game as you have to employ all your wits to defeat everything that menfolk do to defend against your pathogen. The game offers equal opportunities for all as you dig in your heels and embark on your mission of eliminating the human race, making the entire world your enemy in the process. Designed specifically with the iPhone in mind, the game makes good use of the iPhone’s retina display as well as the processing prowess to offer various levels of challenges to make the entire thing all the more exciting and thrilling.
6. Candy Crush
This is another cult favourite, which continues to have an ever increasing fan following. As the name suggests, it is a world of candies of all shapes and sizes that you switch and match as you progress through the game. With thousands of levels of increasing difficulty in this puzzle, it is perfect for your long commute to work.
It is also one of the easiest games to play though there sure are challenges thrown in that test your skills as much as they seem to draw you into the game. Not to mention, the brilliant Retina Display can make the candies really stand out and seem all the more tasty.
This is an action game where you are pitched against a seemingly unending stream of zombies of almost all shapes and sizes that come your way. You will have various weapons at your disposal that you can make good use of to ward off the zombie threat as you try to escort your family out of the zombie zone and into safety. Apart from the weapons, you will have help from different quarters, such as animals who are loyal to you and will help you destroy the zombies. You will have to be ruthless in dealing with the zombies and keep moving with your family, which is where the thrill and excitement of the game lies.
It is a puzzle game but in a sci-fi setting. The game will ultimately challenge your matching abilities but one that deals with planets and constellations as you set out on a mission to save your garden from bugs that can traverse around galaxies. There are unique challenges at every step and you can use enhanced powers to deal with emerging threats that aim to wipe out the plant species in your garden. On the whole, it is a matching game unlike any other that you will love to play.
The Real Racing 3 is racing game that does justice to the awesome processing capabilities of the iPhone while the Super Retina display makes things all the more realistic. For this, credit must also go to the creators of the game for the stunning visuals, complete with sound effects that are a close replica of the original exhaust note of the cars. The choice of cars is also exquisite, what with the likes of Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi and more. On the whole, Real Racing 3 is for those who thrive on speed and adventure.
Minecraft is a game that tests your creativity, where you have to lend shape to all the creative ideas and imaginations that you have. All you have to do is imagine something to build it, with the game offering different block types to let you build what you have imagined. And what better device to play the game on than the iPhone given the superior hardware support it provides while the crisp display makes your creations stand out all the more. You will never miss playing the game on the PC after experiencing it on the iPhone.
