Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.
Thousands of apps and games are added to the App Store each week, and trawling through them to find the good ones can be difficult. That’s where we come in! We’ve found three titles in particular that we think are worthy of your attention this week.
Frag: Pro Shooter [Free]
Team-based shooters are all the rage right now on console and PC, and Frag: Pro Shooter is the latest attempt to bring some of that multiplayer magic to mobile. It’s certainly one of the brightest and most accessible shooters we’ve seen, and there’s an intriguing character hot-swapping system that sees you playing each distinct ‘hero’ role in your team at various points. All in all it’s a bit like a really zoomed-in and hands-on Clash Royale.
Here’s a starkly beautiful endless runner with a thrilling sci-fi premise. Scorcher sees you guiding your little speeder through sand-blasted canyons, hopping past giant alien worms and collecting nimble sand sharks along the way. There’s something of Frank Herbert’s Dune to the whole thing, not to mention the pod racing bit from the first Star Wars prequel movie. Only, you know, good.
PS4 Remote Play [Free]
Mobile gaming has come on a long way over the past decade, as evidenced by the above picks. When it comes down to depth of gameplay and sheer technical chops, however, the home console remains king. This PS4 Remote Play app looks to bridge that gap by allowing you to stream live gameplay from your PS4, over a solid Wi-Fi connection, to your iPhone or iPad. Whether you’ll want to do such a thing without a proper controller is another matter entirely, of course.
