On September 15, Apple unveiled the eighth generation iPad and the fourth version of the iPad Air. And although the company has never positioned its products as gaming, good, and most importantly, unified hardware allows you to create excellent games for these tablets, which are technically not so much inferior to titles for PC and consoles. In this article, we’ll talk about ten iPad and iPhone games with the best graphics.
Call of Duty is one of the biggest, if not the biggest FPS franchises. Since 2005, she has never lost her schedule, consistently delivering shooters to the audience at least once a year. And despite this, interest in the series has not yet faded away – new titles are still eagerly awaited.
However, all of the above applies only to consoles and PCs, Call of Duty has never really shone on mobile devices. There were adaptations for Java and flirting with strategy mechanics, there were even attempts to make mobile FPS. However, that same full-fledged experience was not there until the release of Call of Duty Mobile.
The reason for the success of Call of Duty Mobile is quite simple – it is, in general, the same Call of Duty that everyone is used to. There are, of course, differences: there are fewer people in matches, touch-gamepad controls, but these are all trifles. The game offers exciting, and most importantly, comfortable shooting, a number of PvP modes and a variety of customization and pumping.
Eve Echoes is a multiplayer space simulator. The events of the game take place in a parallel universe with respect to Eve Online, but the developers promise to implement all the key features of the original in the mobile spin-off. According to the authors of the game, Eve Echoes will have more than 8 thousand star systems, a free economy and advanced social mechanics.
From the side of the gameplay, Eve Echoes resembles working with graphs and tables – the game has many different mechanics, most of which are somehow tied to numbers. Be it war, trade or resource extraction – first of all, you need to work with your head. However, as with the original Eve, sometimes you can just sit back and enjoy space.
Asphalt 9: Legends
If you want to quickly understand what Asphalt 9: Legends is all about, then just imagine what an ideal Fast and Furious game would look like. And we are not talking about the first films in which there were street racers and small-town criminal showdowns. Asphalt 9: Legends has incorporated the best of the later parts of the franchise – super-expensive cars, tremendous speed, incredible stunts and a complete lack of common sense.
If you are looking for a good car simulator for mobile or tablet, then I will save you time – Asphalt 9 is not about that at all. On the other hand, this game is definitely worth paying attention to gamers who want to kill time in a not very difficult, but very entertaining race. Lots of licensed cars, beautiful graphics and slightly insane physics have given the Asphalt series a well-deserved recognition among mobile entertainment enthusiasts.
By the way, about console games on mobile. Recently, this means ports or the original multi-platform, that is, exactly the same titles ported to smartphones and tablets without major gameplay changes. However, in the days of Java, these were completely different games, albeit with the same name. Occasionally a similar thing happens now.
Fighting is one genre that is reluctant to adapt to the mobile platform. They require a relatively large set of actively used buttons, as well as the ability to combine and quickly switch between them. The touch screen does not do this well.
That is why mobile Injustice 2 is much more casual than the older version, plus the shareware distribution model has brought in a rather aggressive service. However, the game turned out to be quite beautiful, retaining the console design and animation. In addition, you can go through a story campaign in it, the cut-scenes of which almost did not suffer in any way from the transfer to smartphones and tablets.
Black desert mobile
If you don’t have AdBlock, then you probably already know everything there is to know about this game. Not at the level of Raid: Shadow Legends, but still. For those who, for some reason, managed to lose sight of Black Desert Mobile, this is the mobile version of the Korean MMORPG of the same name – in it you will find a lot of grind, bright special effects and armored bras.
The game received mixed reviews from the press and users. Some praised the abundance of content, others did not like the auto battle system, some even complained about the explicit pay-to-win mechanics. But the gamers agree on one thing – the graphics in Black Desert Mobile are at a very high level. Lights, shadows, weather effects and texture quality are quite comparable to console ones, especially if you don’t get too carried away with zoom.
These were ten (or more) games for iPad and iPhone with excellent graphics. Yes, not all of them can compete on equal terms with consoles and PCs. But considering that mobile devices can fit in your pocket and at the same time have much more functionality, this is very impressive. Which iPad and iPhone games do you think have the best graphics?
