The Tuesday Best of - AR games for iOS 11

It looks like it's Tuesday already. So that's something, I guess. And as you all know, Tuesday is when we round up three of the best games in a specific genre on the App Store. I think you can probably guess what I'm going to be rounding up today.

Yup, that's right, it's AR games. A whole bunch came out on the App Store in the wake of iOS 11, so I figured it made sense to tell you which of them you should download. Because, to all intents and purposes, that is my job.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you've got your own AR suggestions, feel free to add them in the comments section at the bottom of the article.

The Machines

This is the game that Apple used to show off its new technology. It's a multiplayer game built in the Unreal Engine. You and your friends control robots, and then smash each other to bits in rapid-fire chunks of action. It looks amazing, and if you want to impress people with what your iPhone 8 can do, this is almost certainly the game to go for.

A clever puzzling platformer that eschews traditional controls. You need to physically change your perspective to lead a plucky character through a series of levels. Think Monument Valley, but with more literal real-world dodging and weaving and you're part of the way there.

Lila's Tale: Stealth

This one's all about sneaking. It's pretty simple, but it looks good and it plays well. Lead the titular heroine through a series of challenges, making sure you keep out of the sight lines of the patrolling guards. It's not exactly revolutionary, but the AR additions make it an interesting twist on a familiar genre.
