As technology continues to develop, phone apps are becoming more and more advanced. This is allowing developers to make games that might usually be reserved for console players to be played on mobile. There are countless games that are available, but here are a few of the top choices that have converted into mobile games.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is the mobile translation of this popular console/ PC game. The mobile version is as intense as the original, where you will feel yourself transported to Miami in the 1980’s. You will have to fight and act as a criminal through stealing cars, gunfights, and other similar activities.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is compatible with both iOS and Google Play. It is $4.99 but is well worth the price for what it has to offer.
This free app is only available in iOS and takes a spin on a typical first-person shooter game. Players usually must use virtual stick controls to move around and shoot at enemies. However, The Drowning is innovative because the control system uses new technologies of tapping at locations while moving around, and using two fingers to shoot at your target. It allows the player to have high accuracy when shooting and allows you to have better aim at your enemies. The graphics also are high-quality, and look as if you were playing from a current console.
Final Fantasy V
Playing Final Fantasy V on your phone will be just the same as previous game consoles. The game’s publisher, Square Enix has made sure that user compatibility has transferred to the mobile version. It allows for touch-screen controls, and with the top-notch graphics, you will be locked in this fantasy world.
The price is slightly steep at $15.99, but the high quality is well worth it.
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
This fantasy based game requires you to battle with enemies while you are solving puzzles along an action-paced journey. It also incorporates social media through allowing you to gain support through Twitter. Both the visuals and the sounds are impressive in this game and will keep you hooked over time.
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is $4.99 for iOS and $1.99 for Google Play.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
A popular game from Xbox 360 to Wii U, Injustice: Gods Among Us is equally competitive in the mobile setting. It is slightly different than the console versions and will require some getting used to with a swipe based combat system. You can also easily challenge other friends and build up your fighters to the next levels. Injustice: Gods Among Us is free for iOS users.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
A popular game on consoles, Need for Speed: Most Wanted did not disappoint the mobile users. Players can play at several different levels with an easy control system. It allows for high-speed racing, as well as opportunities to wreck opponents and police encounters. The final goal of the first-place victory is accompanied by a rock soundtrack and mesmerizing visuals that will keep you entertained.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted is $6.99 for iOS and $5.99 for Google Play.
