Top 10 iPhone Games To Play With Friends 2019
Many people think that playing mobile games is an experience that can’t be shared with other people and ultimately leads to isolation and loneliness. However, this is far from the truth as there are lots of fun games for your iPhone or iPad that you can enjoy with friends. In fact, those games are a lot more fun when you play them with other people, so let’s take a look at our top ten mobile game choices you can enjoy with friends and family!
Destroy enemy teams in Fortnite
Fortnite is undoubtedly one of the most popular games of 2018, and this year the trend seems to go on. Even when Fortnite was in its first seasons, it was a great game with a lot of potentials. Now that it is in the eighth season, the developers have got a pretty good idea of what gamers want to see in Fortnite, so they keep adding cool features to the game.
Of course, you can always play Fortnite solo and try to be the last one standing among 90+ other solitary players, but the real fun begins once you start playing Fortnite in squads. Squads are basically teams that can be formed by players themselves or randomly filled in by the game if you lack one or more players for a squad. Play the most popular Battle Royale game on your iPhone or iPad and help your squad eliminate all other teams to win!
Explore words in Words With Friends 2
If you’re not into all the shooting and building in Fortnite, you can try out Words With Friends 2 - a game that you can play at your own pace. If you’re just there for the fun and new vocabulary, you can play the game in Solo Challenge mode. However, if you’re up for something more dynamic and challenging, gather your friends and play the Lightning Rounds in teams.
Lightning Rounds are designed to be a straightforward game mode that can be played on the go, while you’re waiting in line, or if you just want to play a couple of quick rounds without investing a lot of time into the game. You can form a team with up to four other people and try to find as many words as possible on the game board. The playing time in this round is limited, and the team that gets the most words wins.
Cut those fruits in Fruit Ninja HD
If you had an iPhone 4 or 4S, you may remember this extremely popular and addictive mobile game. As the years went by, the App Store inevitably saw the appearance of many new titles, some of which became just as popular as Fruit Ninja and eventually overshadowed the classic.
However, Fruit Ninja is still a great game that you can enjoy not only on your own, but also with a friend in a local multiplayer. One of the advantages of Fruit Ninja over many other multiplayer games is that there is virtually no learning curve to the game. You can instantly start slashing at the fruit for hours of mindless fun and fierce competition.
If you want to play Fruit Ninja competitively, but none of your friends or family members are available, you can always play the game in the online multiplayer mode through Game Center. This means that you can have multiplayer fun in Fruit Ninja almost anywhere as long as your device has an active Internet connection.
Collect property in Monopoly HD
It is very likely that you’ve played Monopoly as a kid, so playing this iPad version of the popular board game is going to feel like a trip down memory lane. If you have the larger iPad Pro, you may actually prefer to play Monopoly HD in tabletop mode, which makes the game look almost exactly like its physical versions. For smaller screens, there is a dedicated game mode that facilitates the players’ interaction with the board, but of course, you can also switch to tabletop mode if that’s more convenient for you.
There is no online multiplayer in Monopoly HD, but since the game allows you to play against AI players, we don’t really think that’s a big deal. You can even configure the difficulty of the game, which has a noticeable impact on the AI behavior, making the AI option a great choice for newbie players who want to get better at Monopoly before challenging their friends.
Kill’em all in N.O.V.A. 3: Premium Edition
N.O.V.A. 3 is easily one of the best first-person shooters available for iOS devices. It’s got amazing graphics and ten excellent levels that will keep you entertained for hours. However, we wouldn’t include N.O.V.A. 3 in this list if it didn’t offer any multiplayer action.
And indeed, apart from the cool story mode, there are seven different multiplayer modes where you can join forces with up to 12 friends. You can even choose from seven different maps on which you want your adventures to unfold, so you won’t get bored with the multiplayer mode in N.O.V.A. 3 in a long time.
Gameloft keeps adding cool features both to the game itself and to the multiplayer modes, so you can expect some surprises here and there. One of the most recent updates brought the ability to be in the same vehicle for several allies, which is an awesome way to cooperate and crush your enemies.
Conquer’em all in Clash Of Clans
If you’re not a fan of shooters, you can still have a lot of fun battling your friends in Clash Of Clans. This popular game will require you to think strategically and grow your village so that it can produce enough resources to support your troops. As your village gets bigger, you’ll be able to train more troops and take them to battle.
Here’s where the multiplayer aspect of the game really shines. Admittedly, it can be quite fun to just watch your village develop, but the whole point of this development is to have more troops so that you can battle other clans. You can play with your friends or just find random opponents online; either way, Clash Of Clans offers a great multiplayer experience if you enjoy strategy games.
Top the leaderboards in Plants VS Zombies
This is not your typical multiplayer experience because there’s no way to battle or otherwise challenge other players, whether online or locally. However, Plants VS Zombies games are extremely fun, and there’s still a multiplayer element even in the first installment of the series since you can compete against your friends to rank higher on global leaderboards in a number of categories.
When it comes to Plants VS Zombies 2, things get more interesting because the game introduces a number of new features, including the multiplayer mode. You can now challenge your friends on certain unique levels and see who gets higher scores and becomes the ultimate garden commander.
Smell the burning tyres in Asphalt 8: Airborne
Even with Asphalt 9 already out, Asphalt 8 remains one of our favorite racing titles. It even made this list thanks to the amazing multiplayer feature that allows you to race against players from all over the world on a daily basis. If you take part in multiplayer leagues, you’ll be able to win some awesome prizes, including new cars for your garage. The prizes change every month, and the competitive multi-level ranking system motivates you to keep racing and achieve new heights every day.
We must warn you that winning in Asphalt 8 multiplayer league takes a lot of practice, as you’re racing with hundreds of opponents who all have different skill levels and tactics. Fortunately, you can practice for the real deal playing local multiplayer with your friends. To do that, you need to connect all devices to the same wireless network and follow the in-game instructions.
Nock, draw, and loose in Bowmasters - Multiplayer Game
Cause loads of destruction and mayhem in Bowmasters - the cool multiplayer game where you can use over 60 weapons to cause all kinds of damage to rag dolls and structures. The game has very realistic physics that will require you to practice your skills and get really good with your weapons before you challenge your friends to a multiplayer duel and see who’s the best. There is not much more to say about Bowmasters as it is a pretty straightforward game, so head over to the App Store and start practicing your bow skills today!
Don’t get cut in Slice HD
Slice HD is a puzzle game that challenges you to carefully move away from the blades so that you can press the buttons underneath and clear the level. This may sound easy, but once you’re past the initial levels, you’ll need to place additional fingers on the screen and be more and more swift about your movements. Otherwise, you’ll get “cut” by the blades. The audio and visual effects for the cuts are so realistic you’ll be jerking your hand away from the screen as if it could actually get hurt. And of course, Slice HD has a multiplayer mode that has the potential to entertain you and your friends for hours.
We have rounded up some awesome multiplayer games for you, and we hope you’ll find something you enjoy in our list. We’d definitely recommend to try out Fortnite (if you haven’t already), Fruit Ninja HD, and Monopoly, but of course, you’re free to choose any other title you think you might enjoy.
