In recent years, mobile gaming has picked up steam by quite a lot. While gaming phones are a thing now, there’s nothing better than an iPhone to play high-fidelity titles for mobile. There are thousands of games available on the App Store, making iOS a viable mobile gaming platform similar to Android.
However, it is quite difficult to find the best iOS games for most users. Some games might not be worth your time, while others might seem unappealing to your personal tastes.
Fortunately, we are here for you to help with such things, as we go through hundreds of games every month and handpick five of the best ones for you to play. For this month of July, you can take a look at our picks for the top 5 best iOS games below.
1. Asphalt 9: Legends
Asphalt 9: Legends is a sequel to Gameloft’s most downloaded racing game Asphalt 8: Airborne. Let the adrenaline rush begin with some of the best supercars in the world and race against others.
Asphalt 9 takes you to a journey of most spectacular race arenas you can imagine of. The game features an extensive collection of hypercars, including Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, W Motors, and many more. There are sixty supercars in total, which you can modify to your liking with new parts and feature upgrades. The race track locations are also magnificently detailed in Asphalt 9. You can race across the world’s roughest yet beautiful tracks, and immerse yourself into the vivid sceneries.
Other than tap-to-steer and tilt-to-steer controls, Asphalt 9 features a new TouchDrive control scheme that helps new players familiarize themselves with the tracks without manual learning. You can also create your own racing community with your friends, as well as challenge them for a head-to-head battle for the finish line. The game does have a leaderboard system. Players can race against up to seven players in multiplayer matchmaking.
Asphalt 9 even hosts several special events every month, with rare and expensive supercars as rewards. You can also complete daily events to unlock car blueprints and gain additional resources to upgrade your existing cars.
The game does require an active internet connection for talking to Gameloft’s matchmaking and event servers. Apple devices newer than an iPhone 5s and iPad mini 2 are in the list of compatible devices. Asphalt 9: Legends is one of the best mobile games with console-level visual fidelity and a gripping soundtrack.
If you want to challenge your stock of words and your crossword-solving abilities, then we recommend you to try out SpellTower, an excellent puzzle game that puts players in a rush to create words from jumbled letters and clear the screen before the letters refill the screen. The game is inspired by the combining puzzle mechanics of an indie game named Puzzlejuice, as well as the fast-paced nature of Tetris.
SpellTower consists of six challenging game modes that include Tower Mode, Puzzle Mode, Extreme Puzzle Mode, Zen Mode, and Rush Mode. If you have an iPad Pro, then you can also try out Super Tower Mode, which needs you to get the highest score possible out of 400+ letters. The game also has a Daily Tower Mode that puts you against new tower levels every day. Every mode has a leaderboard that shows the names of the highest scoring individuals.
You can buy SpellTower for only $2.99 from the App Store. It is compatible with a vast range of iPhone and iPad devices. It is fun to play, and your stock of words goes through significant improvement.
Nexomon is heavily inspired by the RPG elements of Pokémon, and that’s not a bad thing. You start as a rookie trainer in your hometown with a starter Nexomon. As you embark on a journey to new regions of Nexoworld, you get to catch new and unique Nexomon and make new friends on the way. You also get to assemble your ultimate team of six Nexomon and battle against legendary champions with powerful Nexomon to master your battling skills.
As you encounter more opponents, your Nexomon gains experience points and levels up. Soon, your Nexomon evolves to the next phase, giving them more powerful attacks and higher stats. You can catch over 300 Nexomon across different regions, each having their own unique skills and abilities. Eight of them are legendary, so you have to not only explore the world deeply to find them but also level up your team of Nexomon and put them up to a challenging fight against the legendary Nexomon. You will only get one chance to catch it since they rarely spawn, even in secret zones.
Nexomon is one of the best role-playing games in the App Store. It does have iCloud support so that you can sync your progress across several Apple devices. Along with support for a broader list of iPhone and iPad, you can also play Nexomon on the iPod touch. The game also has its in-game currency, and you can make in-app purchases to buy currency bundles.
4. Easy Game – Brain Test
Easy Game – Brain Test is a logical puzzle game that makes you think outside the box with its brain-twisters and tricky riddles. The game not only challenges your mind but also improves your puzzle-solving abilities to an extent.
Brain Test offers a variety of unique levels that needs you to apply common sense, real-life logic, and some imagination skills. You also get to complete daily challenges that reward you with special trophies. If you can’t get past a challenge, then you can ask for a hint as well. However, it’s better to focus on the smaller details and think harder to find the easiest solution to a particular problem.
With every update, Brain Test receives a plethora of new riddles and challenges so that you never have to repeat the solved ones. The game is also free to play, albeit with advertisements for app monetization. However, you can remove the ads completely by paying $4.99 and support the developers.
5. Draw it
As the name suggests, Draw it is a simple, fast-paced game with an end goal to describe as many objects as possible in the form of drawing within an allotted time.
However, you compete against three other players with the same objective. It encourages you to draw specific objects faster than others, whether the end result is visually appealing or not. You can also see what others are drawing, making it more fun to play.
As win rewards, you receive coins and get to unlock new word packs. The rules are quite simple, and it is a solid time-killer for casual players. Draw it does have in-app advertisements, but you can remove it by subscribing for an in-game VIP membership, starting from $3.49 only. You can install the app on your iOS device for free from the App Store.
