Because of the sheer amount of choice available, when you’re browsing the App Store, it can be challenging to find the best games for your iPhone. To help out, here’s our roundup of the games we think are worth downloading and playing this week. No matter your personal preference — whether it’s a word puzzle game, arcade game, or a trivia game— we’ve got you covered.
Here are our top 5 best iPhone games you should play this week:
Vainglory, the MOBA game developed by Super Evil Megacorp, was a major part of Apple’s iPhone 6 launch in 2014. Earlier this month, the game broke away from its exclusivity with Apple and was released for Android, but it’s still well worth a look for iPhone owners. Players control a single hero, and the goal is to shatter a giant Vain crystal located in the center of your enemy’s base. You’ll learn unique abilities, as your hero grows more powerful throughout the game. Whoever manages to destroy the crystal first wins.
Agar.io is a multiplayer game developed by Reddit user Zeach. In Agar.io, players control a tiny, colored cell, and they have to try to eat other players to become the biggest cell of them all. See how long you can survive in this fun, yet addicting game for iOS and Android.
Alphabear is a word puzzle game developed by Spry Fox. The objective of Alphabear is to spell as many words as you can by selecting letters from anywhere on the grid. When players use letters next to each other, cute bears will appear. Each time the bear gets bigger, players earn more points.
Down the Mountain is an arcade game developed by Sven Magnus. To descend the infinite mountain, tap the screen to jump from left to right, and land on the regular tiles. Avoid the spikes, cars, and lava, otherwise you’ll die. Don’t forget to collect stars and power-ups on your way down the mountain!
SongPop 2, a trivia game developed by FreshPlanet Inc, allows players to browse and listen to thousands of songs, and challenges them to guess the correct artist or title quickly. Test your knowledge on dozens of genres including Today’s Hits, Classic Rock, Pop, Indie, and more. The app also lets you discover new music, see which artists are on tour, and share songs with your SongPop buddies.
That’s it for this week, but check back next week for more fun iPhone games to download!
