1-The battle of polytopia
At the start of The Battle of Polytopia, you find yourself in a little town, surrounded by the unknown, with a single warrior unit under your command. The game gives you 30 turns to explore, locate and ally with or attack other miniature empires, research technologies, and advance your civilization.
Much of the game is based on strategizing, making the best use of limited resource allowances. Would it be beneficial this turn to research hunting and utilize nearby (and tasty) wildlife? Or would the smart move be getting the technology to forge huge swords, subsequently enabling you to gleefully conquer rival cities?
In essence, then, this is Civilization in microcosm – a brilliantly conceived mobile take on 4X gaming (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) that betters actual Civ games that have appeared on iPhone. In limiting your turns and giving you a score at the end, the game also feels puzzled, since you must figure out how to better your lot with very limited resources and time.
For more bloodthirsty players, there’s also a ‘domination’ mode, where you play until only one tribe remains standing. However you play, it’s an astonishing achievement, huge fun, and the best freebie game on iPhone.
2-Beyond asteel sky
5-street fighter IV
Clash Royale takes a lot of cues from Blizzard’s collectible card game Hearthstone, but it differs in one big way: In this game, the battle cards actually come to life and duke it out on the battlefield.
Based on Supercell’s own popular Clash of Clans series, Clash Royale allows for team duels, in-game communities, special events, and much more.
Clash Royale combines collectible cards, tower defense, and online multiplayer to create a truly unique gaming experience. Since its worldwide release in 2016, Clash Royale has been nominated for many different awards and is now a popular international Sport.
7-farming simulator 20
Want to play a farming game, but not a fan of Stardew Valley‘s cutesy style? Farming Simulator 20‘s realistic approach and graphics are definitely up your alley. The mobile profession of farming has been faithfully reproduced down to the last brand-name tractor, with over 100 machines from real-world names, the ability to farm and harvest a wide range of crops, and the ability to hop on a horse and live out your cow-tending dreams. It costs $6, but if you’re a fan of a slower pace of life, this is definitely worth the initial investment.
