4 iOS GAMES you want to PLAY NOW
Fortnite is the biggest game in the world immediately. In February alone, the free-to-play battle royale sensation racked up $126 million from in-game purchases and gained much mainstream attention all the while. Also, it’s super fun—and now it’s available on iOS. it had been originally invite-only, which didn’t stop Fortnite from topping the App Store charts upon release, but as of today, it’s freely downloadable by anyone with a compatible device. You’ll battle to be the last player standing from a gaggle of 100 on an outsized island, and beyond simply shooting rivals, you’ll also build structures on the fly to assist in your survival. It’s impressive how well Fortnite plays even on a compact iPhone screen.
On the opposite hand, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was the most important game of last year until Fortnite stole its thunder, although it’s still plenty huge today. It also hit iOS in March, and in contrast to the paid PC and console releases, it’s free-to-play. Impressively, it’s and plays exactly like its big brother despite the change. PUBG Mobile, as it’s called, maybe a more traditional and realistic-looking battle royale entry. It’s still you against the pack of 99 other online players, but it lacks the cartoonish look and rapid building of Fortnite. It’s a rather slower-paced survival experience as a result, but PUBG has made the move to mobile surprisingly intact. And you don’t need an invitation to start out playing this one.
HAL Laboratory has built massive Nintendo games like Kirby and Super Smash Bros, but Part-Time UFO is some things new and original—and also charming and compact. It’s essentially digital combat the arcade crane game, but rather than fishing around to undertake and win a stuffed animal, you’ll use your UFO’s crane to move items and solve puzzles. Early on, meaning loading oranges onto a truck or assembling pillars to create a structure, but the premise expands widely to the purpose of stacking cheerleaders, constructing lavish deserts, and even arranging Tetris-style pieces. Part-Time UFO is hard but thankfully endearing, and it recalls a number of the zanier Nintendo handheld gems from over the years.
READ ONLY MEMORIES: TYPE-M
We dug this cyberpunk adventure when it first released on Mac a couple of years ago, and now Read Only Memories: Type-M feels right reception on iPhone and iPad also. Set in Neo-San Francisco in 2064, Read Only Memories highlights the creation of the primary sapient robot, who escapes from the lab and recruits your journalist hero to undertake and help it hunt its creator. You’ll unravel the conspiracy by investigating scenes and talking with bystanders in traditional adventure genre fashion, and therefore the futuristic world and colorful characters make Read Only Memories highly appealing. This mobile version lacks the voice acting of the opposite editions, but it’s also much cheaper: After the free first chapter, it’s just $6 to unlock the remainder.
