Merge games

I played Travel Town and you need money and friends to keep playing without it being a chore. I found Love & Pies today and I like it. Any other recommendations for merge games like there?

Looking for any cute animal games that aren’t just breeding games

I like cute animals but all I’m finding are dragon breeders or things that are very kiddie (like for young kids). Just looking for any genere of game that has a very cute aesthetic and cute animals that isn’t that. (Tho if it’s puzzle that’s a plus. I love puzzle games)

Looking for a good RTS…

My favorite old RTS is the Command and Conquer series of games. I have not been able to find something similar (or even a port where I can use an emulator). I’m new to iPad gaming, so not really sure where to look.

Turn based combat game?

Hey guys,

I’m looking for a game similar to Knights of Pen and Paper, or dragon quest. I’m a big fan of turn based combat and would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Looking for an easy to play rpg or hack n slash

I’m looking for an easy to play rpg game. Something that I can play and not have to worry about progress or where I am on a map or certain quest, if I can’t play every day.

Games I’ve played in the past and like are Dungeon Quest and Knighthood and maybe blades? The oblivion game.

Games I’ve tried and just could handle cause they seem like too much of an investment: Genshin Impact, Diablo Immortal, the Torchlight mobile game and even the new Taris Land. They all just seem too complicated.

I don’t want hard puzzles or a lot of pvp or games where I have to team up. If it has some of this but not required to play that’s fine. I don’t like a lot of skill trees or hard to do moves and I don’t have a controller either.

I also want a character or team of characters to control. I’ve tried text based games or games like melvornidle but just don’t like that type of game.

Just looking for something simple to play maybe different classes and different weapons and armor or pets and characters to collect

Thanks

For those who are in iOS/iPadOS 18 beta, does Game Mode improve input latency for bluetooth controllers?

I'm currently testing out RE4 on my iPad Pro (iPadOS 17) and it has a very obvious input delay using my Xbox controller. Tried PPSSPP and it looks like it's just fine, maybe it's just a RE4 issue.

Can anybody test this on iOS/iPadOS 18 with game mode if there's any improvements?

Weekly /r/iOSGaming Discussion - What have you been playing lately and what do you recommend?

Please use this thread to discuss whatever iOS games you've been playing lately. They don't have to be new games, they can be old games and they do not have to be iOS original titles!

As long as it's an iOS game it belongs in here. Make sure to put the name(s) of the game(s) in bold to make it easier for people skimming the thread to see what you're talking about, and if you'd like to make it really convenient turn the game name into a hyperlink that sends people directly to the App Store!

To keep track of the thread, the comments are sorted by "new" by default.

So which is it…? (MTX “special offer”)

Blatant bs about mtx “special offer” in this game called Hitwicket.

Photo shows silver 3 promotion offer 90% off down from $120 to $11.99 for 250k training points

Photo shows same 250k training points 40% off down from $20 to $11.99

So what is the real value of these? Lol.

Fun game but wasn’t ever gonna spend money on it. These “offers” were hilarious though. I want to know the economics behind what they think is the price of these iAPs without discount haha

!a: it’s pulled out of their behind!<

Is lightning/hdmi cable is better than Airplay 2?

Hello

I just began Fantasian on my iphone and ipad and would like to play it on tv as well. I don’t have Apple TV console (and no plans for it), therefore I just use screen mirroring from iphone.

Picture is good in general, though in bright locations it is very much washed out, too much white color in geberal. I tried to adjust TV options but it doesn’t help, probably Airplay compression feature damaging the colors.

Im wondering if I purchase the lightning/hdmi cable (all my devices are from pre usb-c era) it might be the better in this term? Or is it quite the same?

Is there a comfortable wireless Switch-style controller that works with iPhone and Mac and can be used on the go?

I was set on getting a Gamesir G8 since it’s portable yet comfortable. But since it’s USB-C and my iPhone doesn’t have that so what’s a no I guess. I don’t want a lightning controller since my next iPhone will be a USB-C one or wireless only if Apple decides to go that route. Any other suggestions?

Edit: I mean the Switch Lite style

Launching Letterbox - Daily Word Games on Tuesday!

Excited to announce that I'll be launching my collection of word games this upcoming Tuesday!
I've been working on this fun little side project in my spare time over the few years, abandoning it for months at a time, so I'm really happy to finally be releasing it!

Inspired by the idea of daily generated games and the NYT Games app, I started to design and build a collection of my own using SwiftUI.

Letterbox will feature:
🧠 4 unique daily word games to keep your mind sharp
🧩 Dive into a catalog of archived games
🏆 Climb the ranks in global leaderboards
💪 Track your achievements with streaks and stats
📱 Enjoy an AD-FREE gaming experience

I'll be continuing to slowly add additional content like brand new games and game modes to the collection. If you love word games then consider signing up to get notified when Letterbox launches!

Complex board and card games on App Store

Looking for some complex board and card games from the App Store that I normally wouldn’t get my friends/family to play because the game is too long and/or too complex. Dont get me wrong sometimes monopoly or uno are fun, but I’m looking to get a bit deeper than that. What would you all recommend?

ROG Tessen - can it work with iOS?

Over eagerly bought the new ROG tessen for my iPhone 15 Pro Max. Upon getting it in the mail today, I love it. The folding is more than a parlour trick, the buttons and joysticks all feel premium, and the shape is very medium-sized hands friendly.

However, when I plugged it in, the rgb lighting turned on, but I couldn’t get any response in game. Looked in settings and it’s not recognized as a controller.

Called Asus customer service…holy shit that was the worst experience. A FULL hour for them to tell me that the manual says it works with Android phones. 

Armoury Crate for iOS doesn’t seem to have any configure options for it, so maybe I just need to return it. But anyone had luck getting it to work for iPhones?

Cheers,

Z

Any (paid) Ancient City Builders, ala Caesar 3/Pharaoh/Nebuchadnezzar etc?

I would really rather buy the game rather than pay a million microtransactions. Any city management games you can recommend would be amazing. Thanks!
