A game's graphics are important because if it does not look attractive, the player won't enjoy playing it for longer durations. There are very few games out there that hit the mark perfectly when it comes to superb graphics, though many have excellent art styles that shine even if they’re not realistic.

It might get tiring trying to find visually appealing games on the App Store because there are many good and bad options. There are many more things to consider apart from visuals that make a game playable. So here we have found the five best-looking games for iOS to save your time searching for them in the sea of choices available on the App Store.

1. Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact is a beautiful open-world RPG that will blow you away with its amazing graphics and gameplay aesthetics. It will likely remind most people of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, since it clearly takes a lot of inspiration from it..

There is a mountain of stuff to do and explore, and there is never a dull moment even for a single second. The characters are also excellent to use, and the animations are extraordinary.

Start playing now, and you won't miss out on anything. It's a pure RPG experience with supreme graphics and many things to do like quests and tasks. It continues to grow on you as you keep playing it more and more because the more you progress, the more you unlock, and more there is to explore. This ensures there is no halt for the fun train!

2. Playdead's INSIDE

You might already know Limbo from the developer Playdead. Inside's gameplay is quite similar to that and follows the same gameplay style. It has an intriguing storyline that will impress you. The monochrome art style with rare dashes of colour looks astonishing and suits the morbid atmosphere, with smooth animations to back it up.

Inside has various tasks to be performed, which might seem weird to some people as it is out of the ordinary. At its core it is a platformer, and similar to other entries in the genre, it has puzzles that can sometimes be challenging.

There might be instances where the player will get confused about what to do next, but there are hints for whenever you are stuck. For iOS, this game is well optimized, and players will not experience any stuttering or lag.

3. Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a 3D platformer with gorgeous graphics. Most of the gameplay plays out in an isometric view, and it's not always necessary for a game to be realistic in terms of visuals. Monument Valley is a game where you solve puzzles to progress. They are not that difficult to overcome, but you might need to brainstorm ideas to finish them quickly.

Even in terms of gameplay experience Monument Valley is better than most out there because of its simplistic graphics and lovely aesthetic. The only mentionable negative is that it becomes repetitive as you progress and might become challenging for some players later.

4. Asphalt 9: Legends

When it comes to racers on mobile, the first that comes to mind is Asphalt 9: Legends. It's an arcade racer where you have access to many types of cars, each of which can be customised. You can race against opponents through various levels to win items and rewards. There are also training modes where you can train yourself to progress through these levels quickly.

There is no game better than Asphalt on a mobile in terms of graphics. They might prove too demanding for some devices out there. If you are running an old iPhone or iPad, there might be small stutters or lag, but you won't experience any such difficulties in the new devices.

The game is quite visually impressive, and there are many aspects where it might even be considered a rival to the PC version. You can customize your car and upgrade it to increase the speed, acceleration, and power. These aspects are very important because to win a race against difficult opponents, you will have to upgrade your car to the max.

5. The Room

If you're looking for some intense puzzle and horror elements in your game, there is nothing better than The Room and there are many entries in this franchise.The added horror elements only serve to make it even more exciting to play.

The Room has made its way to mobile from the original series on PCs and consoles. Even in terms of graphics, the game is very well designed, and it matters because aesthetics are like cherry on the top with puzzlers. With poor graphics, many key items can also be missed.

This game tasks you with decoding several puzzles, and some of them might prove challenging. You need to be aware of your surroundings all the time. If you miss even a single hint, then you will get stuck for a while.

Players looking for some thrilling action along with puzzles and horror will enjoy The Room. Also, the developers have created an entire franchise out of this single title, so there’s no worry about it ending anytime soon.
