Even if iPadOS exists, the majority of excellent iPhone games are also excellent iPad games. Even while there aren’t many iPad-only games, those that do both benefits substantially from the tablet’s larger screen space. Bigger is frequently better. The iPad features a large selection of video games that allow you to race quick automobiles, defeat monsters, or embark on an emotional adventure.
Check out our list of must-have games that will keep you entertained at home or on a long journey if you recently purchased an iPad (Air, mini, or Pro) and are ready to game.
1. Alto Odyssey
The sequel to Alto’s Adventure from 2015 is titled Alto’s Odyssey. The ability of the series to blend the mechanics of an effortless, endless runner with the magnificent aesthetics of skiing is continued in the new game. As you down the mountain, accomplish objectives, gather cash, and unlock upgrades.
2. Among Us
Despite its initial release in 2018, Among Us really became the ideal, paranoid, quarantine pastime in 2020. While covert saboteurs strive to kill you all covertly, you and your buddies command a team of cartoon astronauts who are cooperatively repairing your spaceship. You can either keep up the ruse or do some good ol’ fashioned social engineering to bring out the truth.
3. Asphalt 9: Legends
Nothing showcases cutting-edge graphics technology like a racing game, with its flashy automobiles and exhilarating sense of speed. The same applies to Asphalt 9: Legends. You’ll be grateful for every dollar you spend purchasing your new tablet after playing this lovely free game.
Among mobile RPGs, Bastion distinguishes out for its compelling narrative, excellent voice work, and exquisite visual presentation. You take on the role of a player who must travel to a post-apocalyptic fantasy world in order to gather rocks that will help you improve your new home. Before everything is said and done, there are still a tonne of jobs to finish and upgrades to get.
A straightforward game with challenging puzzles, Blek features minimalistic graphics and touch-screen movements. To pass each stage, devise movement patterns. Although it might not seem like much, the game turned out to be a fantastic addition to the iPad’s library of games.
Despite being one of the more expensive iPad apps, Carcassonne is a good alternative to the traditional German board game. In this cooperative game, you construct a mediaeval environment by placing game pieces and tiles on a virtual board. Owning finished developments like cities, farms, and highways is the aim. Carcassonne is a game of property ownership, although it provokes thought and is less strongly based on chance than that other property ownership game Monopoly. It is one of the top board game applications out there.
When this Castlevania spin-off first debuted on iOS a few years back, it was stuffed with obnoxious in-app purchases. Thankfully, the money grabs have been removed from this new Apple Arcade edition, leaving you with all the action-packed, side-scrolling, gothic adventuring you’d expect from the seasoned vampire killers.
8. Darkest Dungeon
Darkest Dungeon begins as a standard dungeon crawler, but this RPG soon transforms into a genuinely terrifying survival game. Combining real-time and turn-based combat, you control a cast of characters as you explore dungeons. Monitor each hero’s level of stress to prevent negative outcomes.
9. Device 6
Device 6 uses text to take you on a fantastical journey as it examines the ideas of story and choice. Despite being primarily text-based, Device 6 is not exactly a “text adventure.” Device 6 is more like a puzzle-filled augmented digital storybook. Not everyone will enjoy the game, but those that enjoy unconventional gameplay should give it a shot.
Fantasian is a brand-new, retro version of Final Fantasy. It is the most recent work from the franchise’s founder, Hironobu Sakaguchi. Even while you won’t be able to see Cloud or Sephiroth, you will be able to feel their presence as you and your party move through crystal-filled futuristic fantasy landscapes. On an iPad screen, which brilliantly displays the game’s stunning visuals, those crystals sparkle even more.
