Just curious, do you play games on your iPhone or iPad?

Sometimes I like to play games on my phone but overall it’s usually a better experience on my iPad. Wish more games supported backup to iCloud so I could switch between them more. Was pleasantly surprised cooking craze did it when I switched between my x and iPad Pro

Would be nice to have more that have this ability yes.

That's the one thing I have never downloaded for my iPad or iPhone, was games. Nothing against them, just not into mobile games on those devices.

I've been a gamer all my life, but I never fell for mobile gaming. I think my standards for video games are too high for ever getting used to play on my iphone. Of course there are nice games that kind of get you addicted for quite some time, but I usually delete them after a few days. Right now there wasn't any game on my iphone for around half a year.
But taste is different, my gf likes mobile gaming alot and would probably tell the same story the other way around :D

I play a little of both.

I have a couple of games on the iPad that are not on the iPhone and vice versa. I mostly play games on the iphone to pass the time. For instance, I'm waiting at the train station, and so I'm playing a mindless time, until the train arrives.

I dabble.

I tend to use my iPad for something more immersive and visual, Worms, Heroes of Might & Magic, board games with others. And then I use my phone to pass time on commutes with more 'puzzle' style simple games such as 2048 and Threes. I downloaded the Machines to play around with the AR on my iPhone X. Still haven't actually played it!

All in all, if I was going to sit down to play something then the PS4 is used, I only use the iOS stuff to pass shorter intervals of time, or commutes/flights.

Well, these are games I play often. Three of them are music games. One of them is puzzle music game (listen to the music and solve the puzzle). Others are adventure games. Oh, and two clock apps.

I do VR gaming on my Samsungs and I play Neko Atsume, Bejeweled Classic, and hidden object games. I used to play Hay Day but it got to be oddly stressful because it requires you to keep up with processes and I do enough of that in real life. I also played some Build-A-Lot 2 HD and Virtual City HD

I’ll be playing the Animal Crossing game at some point.

Whatever I play now just has to be a quick time filler I can pick up and put down easily, like at a waiting room at the doctors office or standing by waiting for the kids to be done with a practice or rehearsal or stuff like that. I can’t get involved in games that require I remember a strategy I was working on or anything too involved with a plot and clues to keep track of. So mostly it’s Bejeweled Classic these days.

I’m not a big mobile gamer but I do enjoy a few games.

My iPad mini 4 is, in my opinion, the perfect size for mobile games. Small enough to easily hold and use onscreen controls in either portrait or landscape, but with a large enough display that your thumbs aren’t blocking everything.

The 8+ (or any plus sized model) also provides a decent amount of screen real estate for games. Right now I’m really loving having Final Fantasy IX in my pocket!

Strategy games are pretty fun. Tower defense games and such. Im playing cooking craze right now and I’ve been yelling at my burger station for 10 minutes in frustration. But it’s fun haha
Hmm, i play different kind of games.
My 2 favs are Mortal Kombat X and Guns of Boom. These two i play everyday, so into the dead 2. I like also Rockstar (bought all bundle), Stranger Wrath, Rayark games, Breakneck, NFS:most wanted, Space Marshall 1&2, xenowork, halo - dual stick shooters.
Sky force: reloaded, rayman, some escape puzzle like geostorm.
Not to mention about also about oceanhorn and infinity blade 3.
And much more...:)

+1 for Animal Crossing. I’m hoping my wife gets into it too.

Like some others here, I could never get into mobile gaming. I use to be hardcore into gaming too, but mobile never appealed to me.

Played a lot of games on my 7 Plus but now I will likely play more on my iPad Pro due to screen size of X.

I have about 80GB of games. Love to play, definitely mobile gamer :)

HELP.. need game recommendations
Recommend some fun games for me!

back in the day i played an online first person shooter game that was against other players kinda like a call of duty game but i stopped playing for a year or two and now i forget the game. I love infinity blade.. i beat the first one and have the 2nd but didnt play it yet.

i got hooked into madden mobile for a while.. really wish i could find a first person shooter that has perfect controls and maybe plays against other players.. much like call of duty.
