The introduction of official game controller support for iOS devices a few years ago was a radical change for Apple. As good as a game can be with touch controls, the controller support adds a whole new level of playability. Of course, Android has had game controller support for years now.
For this list, we’re going to focus here on games that really go to the next level with a controller, or that would obviously be hard to play without one. So don’t expect your favorite puzzle games or point-and-click adventures to make the cut. Before you begin, you should probably also connect your game controller to your iOS or Android device.
1. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
This iconic game will take you back to the glory days of the original PlayStation in 1997. A direct port of Castlevania’s console classic: Symphony of the Night (iOS, Android) will let you jump, dash and run thanks to the classic. controller support.
Everything you know and love about the classic game is here as you battle Dracula’s castle and battle new and challenging enemies along the way. The controllers are focused, easy to learn and help make Symphony of the Night excel on iPhone and iPad.
How can you be expected to build the voxel world of your dreams without the right equipment, or survive in the wild against zombies with precision-strike only offered by a game controller?
We don’t want to blame poor tools for workmanship, but the game controller is really an essential tool for getting the most out of Minecraft (iOS, Android). The game really needs no introduction – on the one hand it’s a huge sandbox where you can let your creativity run wild and create interesting worlds. On the other hand it is surprisingly difficult survival game.
Minecraft is really what you make of it, which is why it is one of the most popular games in the world.
3. Real Car Parking
This game lives up to its name to a large extent. The game’s creators certainly took into account what and where a driver could actually see when the car was parked, and they enabled the player to do the same thing.
Camera angles are fully customizable, and you have the option to zoom in and out if needed. Easy to use for great graphics and gameplay Real Car Parking is an unparalleled one for the books.
4. Ark: Survival Evolved (free)
Back in June 2015, Ark: Survival Evolved entered Early Access on Steam with the aim of coming to PC and Mac. Three years later and Ark has conquered not only PC but also smartphones on Mac, PS4, Xbox One and even iOS and Android. It’s one of the most polished open world games we’ve seen available on Android, featuring a massive open world you can explore by land, sea, and air, and more than 80 dinosaurs to discover, fight, tame. can and can reproduce.
You can build and build your own shelter, or work with friends online as a tribe to build bigger and better structures. You can unlock a range of weapons, from basic spears to high-tech weapons, and you can even ride some of the dinosaurs that come before you. What more could you want from an open world game?
5. PUBG Mobile (free)
Does PUBG Mobile really need an introduction? The smash hit battle royale game released in 2017 is now available in mobile form for both iOS and Android gamers. Unlike the PC and console version, which will cost you £26.99, the mobile version is free to play with a bunch of IAPs, though these are limited exclusively to cosmetics.
But while some believe the experience on mobile devices is poor, the F2P mobile game actually has mechanics that we’d love to see transferred to the main game. Most notably, when looting, useful attachments and items will be automatically picked up and equipped – ideal for those who aren’t sure about the myriad attachments of weapons available in PUBG.
Aside from the cool mechanics, the shooter isn’t as hard to use as some would imagine. Of course, there’s a learning curve to it, but once you get used to the state of the art on-screen controls and movement mechanics, you’ll find those chicken dinners easy.
