I just got an iPhone 8 and am looking for some game recommendations. It’s apparently the world’s fastest phone at least until November, so it should run any iOS game, unless that game hasn’t been updated to work in 64-bit.
In particular, I’m looking to play games that are designed with the touch screen and the constraints of the mobile form factor in mind, rather than quick ports of PC/console games with virtual thumb stick controls. I can already play the latter on PC and with a real controller, so I don’t see much point in playing lesser versions of these games on my phone. Nintendo has converted their Mario and Fire Emblem franchises to work with the constraints of mobile quite successfully IMO, Sega less so unfortunately.
Since I really enjoyed Journey, I will be getting Sky when it comes out on iOS. I see that The Witness was recently released on iOS. That game would be suited to a touch screen since it mostly consists of line puzzles. I haven’t finished the PC version, so I may try the mobile version. I’ve also enjoyed Alto’s Adventure, and as previously mentioned, Nintendo’s games. Intending to try Monument Valley at some point.
