We’re back at it again giving your our picks for the best iPhone games out now. Some of these won’t be exclusive to the App Store so if you’re an Android user, you can also benefit!
1. FLIPPY KNIFE
Flippy Knife was on my past list for the best iPhone games available, and for good reason. This game is so frustrating, yet addicting that several months later, I’m still playing and trying to 1-up my streaks.
If you’re a knife enthusiast you’ll especially enjoy this game because it includes knives that you can actually buy in real life from the most reputable knife-makers around.
The gameplay is so simple and the retro look makes it a joy to play. It’s not over complicated and is a great way to pass the time while sitting on the train or just waiting in general.
2. BASEBALL BOY
One day I was digging deep in the App Store for something new to play and I came across this oddly designed gem. Baseball Boy is a simple game where the goal is to hit the baseball as far as you can.
The game is very poorly animated, but it seems to work for the type of game that it is. For every threshold you pass, you get coins and a bat upgrade. With a recent update, the developers added character costumes and more bat choices.
If it sounds too simple, there are layers to the game. If you want to hit further, you have to buy more strength with the coins you earn. You can also use coins to increase the bounciness of the ball, the speed that the ball travels and the amount of coins you can accumulate while not playing.
It’s a great game to just pass the time as long as you can look past the blocky animations.
3. YU-GI-OH DUEL LINKS
Okay, this one might just be for those super nerds like myself. If you were a fan of the original Yugioh anime and/or card game, then you’ll love Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.
The game is free to play and is the best online multiplayer Yugioh game ever available. You duel your way up from the bottom and build your deck to take out computer players, and even some of the classic Yugioh characters.
The games gets more challenging as you go on and they have online events where you duel in tournaments for special prizes. You can earn player card sleeves, card mats, and play as certain characters.
Although there is micro transactions in the game, you don’t HAVE TO buy anything if you don’t want to. You gather coins and gems during each battle and you can use those to buy booster packs. It’s not even that hard to get enough to buy stuff so I don’t see why anyone would be impatient enough to spend their own money on cards. The best part is the game is entirely free to download!
Okay, hear me out. Akinator is a boggling app that you can pull out at any party and cause a fuss. Akinator is a genie who asks you to think of a person/character/thing, and then he asks you a series of questions.
You will not believe how accurate he is with his guesses. I tried to stump him without being unreasonable and he guessed my person every time! There are two versions of Akinator, one is free (which I linked to) and the other is about $2.99. The paid one is much better.
Seriously, just download the free one and try it out. It’s so eery!
5. Pocket Mortys
If you are a fan of the cult TV Show, Rick and Morty or a fan of the old school Pokemon games, then this is the game for you.
Pocket Mortys meshes the two worlds and takes you on a journey as Rick, who collects the many different versions of Morty there are throughout the multiverse. There are hundreds of Mortys to catch and you can use them in battles with other characters.
It sounds like a corny gimmick but the game is actually very addicting and fun! If you’re looking for a game to play on your phone that you can get invested in without watering virtual trees and whatnot, then download Pocket Mortys. You won’t be disappointed.
These are my top iPhone games out now. Chances are that at least one of these games will find a permanent home on your phone. Just give them a try!
