Vainglory

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.
