There’s a new Modern warfare game coming out this year. Which got me thinking, what are the five best Gameloft games that you can play on mobile right now? Seriously, these are the sort of things that keep me up at night.
Looking back through the dev’s catalogue, there’s a lot of gems there, so it was pretty difficult to whittle them all down to a list of just five. But I managed to do it, because that’s pretty much my job. And then I put them in a slightly controversial order. Go me.
If you disagree or if, heaven forfend, you agree, then let’s get a bit of a chat going on in the comments. That’s what they’re there for, after all. And who knows, you might make a friend for life if you start talking down there.
5. Order and Chaos Online 2: Redemption
A massively multiplayer RPG that fits in the palm of your hand? I mean, sure it’s basically just World of Warcraft with some of the letters changed around, but it’s still a surprisingly entertaining and engaging experience.
Choose a character, head out into the world and complete a bunch of quests. Level up, fill up your bags, fight other players, and then realise six hours have past, you’ve burnt your pizza, and you’re late enough for work that there’s just no point going now.
4. N.O.V.A 3
If Modern Combat is Call of Duty (it is), then N.O.V.A is Halo. Although in this third entry in the series it also throws some Crysis and other sci-fi shooters into the mix as well.
It’s getting on a bit now, but there’s still a lot to like here. From a rich single player campaign to plenty of multiplayer options. If you like your shooters set in the dim and distant future then you should definitely check this one out.
3. The Amazing Spider-Man
Okay, I think it’s possible this is the one you’re going to shout at me for. But that’s okay, I’m tough. This is probably the best superhero game you can get on the App Store, and I’m not even joking.
Swing around New York, fight crime, try and avoid doing the actual story missions because quite frankly they’re a bit rubbish. Everyone gets one. And Spider-Man got this one just right.
2. Asphalt 8: Airborne
Racing games can sometimes be a little po-faced. They all seem to be about transmission and tyres nowadays. Asphalt 8 goes in the other direction and encourages you to do insane flips.
And the racing itself is incredible. Tight and fast and with a sparkle to it that means you can’t help but smile. It’s like Mario Kart done by a YouTubers with a deathwish. But much better than that sounds.
1. Modern Combat 5
And at the top of the list, we have the latest version of the famous military shooter. It looks great, it plays pretty damn well, and there’s a whole bunch of options for you to get your shoot on.
It’s the multiplayer that’s the real star here. Blast friends and foes, join squads, generally have a lovely old time getting murdered by people much younger and happier than you. That’s pretty exciting, yeah?
