10 Best Games for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
1. Modern Combat 5: Blackout
This entry in the Modern Combat franchise is undoubtedly one of the greatest mobile shooters you can find on the market right now. Modern Combat: Blackout carries the pedigree of the rest of the Modern Combat franchise, with a fantastic single-player mode that places you in the shoes of one Caydan Phoenix, the "everyman" soldier who runs from point A to point B, gun in hand, eliminating enemy threats. While the narrative is paltry compared to that of "big budget" shooters, it's engaging enough to sustain a single-player campaign that's divided into bite-sized chunks. And it looks especially good on one or both of these devices.
2. Infinity Blade 3
This gorgeous, sweeping RPG is the pinnacle of what your iOS device has to offer, with plenty of quests, a narrative that's entertaining, and a lush fantasy world that you'll want to explore at every turn. Classic JRPG progression, gesture-controlled combat, and an absolutely gorgeous interface work together to ensure that this one of the best-looking and most impressive examples of what the hardware has to offer, especially given its status at the top of so many "best-of" lists out on the web.
3. The Room 2
The Room 2 is a 3D puzzle game. Players are challenged by a series of rooms in which there are several interconnected puzzles. Actions you take towards solving one puzzle in the room will affect the other puzzles in the room which will eventually lead to opening a portal to the next set of puzzles. This game is a sequel to the first The Room, but players need not worry about missing anything if they play this one first, although the the original game is also excellent. It makes excellent use of the touchscreen with players having to simulate actions such as lifting lids and turning keys, and although some puzzles were tough to figure out, none of the clues were so obscure as to be frustrating. This may be the mobile game of the year and really sets the bar for what games made exclusively for mobile devices should aspire to.
4. The Walking Dead
Telltale Game's hit series The Walking Dead is a point and click adventure game. Set in the immediate aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, players must take on the part of Lee Everett, a convict who was on his way to prison when the epidemic broke out. The first season of The Walking Dead has Lee finding Clementine, a girl whose parents had been away from home when the world started falling apart. It is a tale of redemption, sacrifice, and people pushed to their limits, and players must make choices that truly affect the outcome of the game. The second season is also available with the same pricing scheme.
This hit puzzler is played on a 4x4 grid. Players must slide blocks up and down and side to side containing numbers, when two of the same number are together, they can be combined to make the one block which contains the sum of the numbers on the original two blocks. The objective is to combine number blocks until the add up to the number 2048. If all the grid is filled with blocks and you can no longer combine any it is game over. These simple concepts add up to an amazingly addictive game which is perfect to play on the go. The developer Gabriele Cirulli programmed it in a weekend just to see if he could program a game from scratch and almost 500,000 installs on iOS alone makes it seem like he was fairly successful at his goal. Be wary however, as there are plenty of clones of this game out there, the original and the only one recommended here is 2048 by Gabriele Cirulli.
