You’ve mastered Subway Surfers, Angry Birds, Candy Crush and your high score on Flappy Bird is 241. Let’s face it, you’re a hardcore mobile gamer… and there’s nothing wrong with that! App developers are getting better and better at creating incredibly well-designed and addicting games. Popular opinion is that mobile gaming is increasing to such a high quality that it might someday become more popular than gaming consoles like PS4 and Xbox One.
Clash of Clans – Free
I cannot get enough of this game. Maybe it’s due to the amazing graphics, the never-ending campaign to build an elite village or the fact that this game brings back some nostalgia of my days playing Warcraft: Orcs & Humans. Be prepared to be constantly checking up on your village and re-structuring your defences weekly. If you love combat strategy games then you must download Clash of Clans. *Make sure you also check out their TV ad that ran during this year’s Superbowl!*
Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery – $4.99
No, these aren’t the super brothers you are usually used to seeing in games worldwide. This game is actually like nothing you’ve ever seen before with its unique visual style. You travel through a land with nothing but your sword to fend off enemies and solve musical puzzles. You can also receive help from your twitter friends to give you a better chance at succeeding.
Walking Dead: The Game – $4.99
Fan of the show? Then this game is definitely for you. Put all your zombie apocalypse survival skills to use when you play this adventure game. You play as Clementine and every decision you make affects the next part of the story.
Chaos Rings – $7.99
This game is for hardcore RPG lovers. “Chaos Rings” comes from Square Enix and features responsive gameplay, pristine graphics and (most importantly) a gripping storyline. The story allows you to select a male and female character to form your team and take part in a fight-to-the-death tournament vs. other teams with their own history. “Chaos Rings” has everything you need to feed your RPG cravings.
Infinity Blade II – $6.99
Most hardcore gamers already know about this app but that just makes it another reason of why it has to be on the list. The graphics for this game are once again aesthetically pleasing and this is the one app that actually looks like it could be a console game.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – $4.99
This classic title is perfect for any fans of Rockstar Games and their creations. Arguably one of the best installations of the “Grand Theft Auto” series; this mobile version does not disappoint. The app version does not miss out on any of the loved features of the original console version. The gore, action and freedom are still available and you still have the ability to get your frustrations out on innocent bystanders. Enjoy returning to the 1980’s and build your drug empire once again!
Dead Space – $6.99
This is the choice if you’re looking for a first-person shooter game. It is a sci-fi thriller style game that still delivers on the thrills and chills of any console game. One of the very well-received features on this game is the survival mode which allows you to test exactly how good you are.
FIFA 14 – Free
If a sports game is more your thing then FIFA 13 is the best mobile game around. Every year, the graphics on this particular title improve and this year is no different as the app gives a new meaning to the phrase “the beautiful game”. Download this game to get your fast-paced sports fix in.
