The best single screen multiplayer games on iOS

On the 25th August 2014 the AppSpy and Pocket Gamer teams were having a well-deserved break or the Bank Holiday Monday. Well, most of them were anyway. I decided to jump onto our Twitch channel and bring you a collection of the very best single screen multiplayer games you can get for your iOS device. Without James, Harry, or even Lovely Danny to help me, I decided to rope in my girlfriend - Alix Briskham of Opposable Games - to help me show them off. Also I played a bit of King of Fighters '98, to celebrate the series' 20th anniversary, just because I felt like it.

I've made no secret of my love of…

Hands-on with The King of Fighters '98, the best-of brawler from SNK and DotEmu

As I explain in the hands-on video, I'm a big fan of fighters, so it should come as no surprise that I was first to call “dibs” on giving The King of Fighters '98's re-release a go. If you've got a good controller, the game plays exactly as you remember, and if you can handle touchscreen controls for fighters then you'll be well-served here too. The King of Fighters '98 is potentially going to disappoint a few fans, since it's not the fancypants enhanced version that came out on the last couple of generations of consoles, but if you're after an arcade fighting classic, it should be right up your street.…
