You’re looking for great new games to play on your iPhone, and ideally, ones that don’t cost you a penny. That’s why we are here with our list.
Genshin Impact – Best Free Action Role-Playing
Possibly one of the most hyped free mobile games of recent years, Genshin Impact – known for its sweeping green landscapes reminiscent of Zelda Breath of The Wind – has definitely earned its place in this list. Within days of launch, there are floods of people praising its clever use of gatcha as much as they are praising its vast worlds, and frankly, it sounds well worth the effort of a quick, free download.
Super Fowlst 2 – A Bigger, More Interesting Levels
Super Fowlst 2 is a delightful, easy to pick up platformer where you tap the left and right-hand sides of the screen to bounce a chicken around the levels. It’s definitely got a pinball vibe going and its bright, cheerful aesthetic certainly makes the experience feel much more wholesome.
Cookie Run: Kingdom – A Heroic RPG Story
RPG-combat meetings town-builder in Devsisters’ most recent entry into the Cookie Run series. Not only that, but they’ve managed to softly layer gacha mechanics and a baked-goods twist on the classic good-vs-evil plotline into the mix, and it all cooks out wonderfully.
Available for both App Store and Google Play, the RPG had over a million pre-registrations in its first week and has only gone from strength to strength since its release.
Dungeon Faster – A Fantastic iOS Card Game
Dungeon Faster is an excellent rogue-like deck-builder that was nominated by our readers as one of the best games to release in 2019. It’s been updated since it was held in such high esteem, adding an Arena Mode that allows players to battle it out for leaderboard supremacy.
Words for a bird – A Little Word Puzzle Game
Words for a bird is the latest micro-puzzle game out from puzzle-powerhouse Bart Bonte. While it’s certainly not got the color theming of his most recent issuing, its visual punning is exceptional and – by golly – the art style is memorable and… well, lovely.
Gogogo! – Integrated A Lot Of Interesting Challenges
Gogogo! is a fantastic local-multiplayer mobile game that wins its place on our list due to a caveat. 20 of the games included in it are completely free, and they’re great – each is a microgame like you might find in a Warioware game, albeit expanded for four players and made competitive.
Pokemon GO – An Unforgettable Augmented Reality Experiment
It’s hard to have any sort of a list of best free mobile games without tilting the torch toward the location-based game Pokemon Go. It took the world by storm when it first launched in 2016 and has only gone from strength to strength since. It now features weekly and monthly events, as well as the raid and battle systems which ensures that you’ve always got something to do. It also managed to survive national lockdowns through quick work from the development team. Phew.
