11 Revolutionary Apps That Changed Smartphone Gaming

Mobile apps are changing all the time, with the best gaming software developers revolutionizing the way we go about our day-to-day lives. Living in the digital age, we use our phones for everything, so here are 11 of the best gaming apps that should be with you in your pocket at all times.

Angry Birds

Angry Birds is one of the greatest mobile games that has been released, with not many other titles reaching the same fame. Kick-starting the mobile game revolution, nearly all puzzle-styled apps owe something to Angry Birds.

Grid Autosport

You can find a variety of arcade racers on mobile that emulate the console experience in a fast, attractive manner. In reality, only one actually converts to a 1:1 ratio. You can play the classic racer Grid Autosport on your smartphone in all its depth and in all its glory. This is a remarkable accomplishment.

Among Us

Among us is a fresh, free-to-play multiplayer game that allows crewmates and imposters to venture around a map completing tasks. In order for the crew members to win, they must either complete all the tasks or decipher who the imposters are. The imposters will fake completing tasks and use their best judgment to get rid of the crew members one by one to eventually win the game. Among us takes communication, skill, and a little cunningness but is one of the best mobile games available.

Jetpack Joyride

One of the earliest and best endless runners, Jetpack Joyride, was not the first on mobile. A second important aspect of this list is that it is still active, with ongoing support from legendary developer Halfbrick. Use wild power-ups and randomly generated hazards to make your way as far as you can as hero Barry Steakfried.

Alto’s Odyssey

A game like Alto’s Odyssey was inspired by Jetpack Joyride, which embodies the glory of endless running’s past. First impressions of the game start with an art style so crisp and smooth it belongs on a magazine cover, but the game plays equally well, with an incentive-driven design that keeps you coming back for more.

Clash Royale

As evidenced by the fact that the influence of Clash Royale can still be felt right now, this is the most recent entry to the Hall of Fame. Supercell’s success here was in simplifying MOBA gameplay by mixing in some card battle magic. There have been countless clones ever since.

Pokemon Go

You’ll have to remind us what other mobile game has held people’s attention for as long as Pokémon Go. Since its launch in 2016, it has not slowed down. As you battle and capture cute critters near real-world landmarks, this game really benefited from augmented reality and location-based gameplay.

Infinity Blade

The concept of mobile games with console quality was never considered until 2010 when Infinity Blade was released. Using the same Unreal Engine that was commonly used for top-end console games at the time, this was an outstanding action game. The gameplay was almost as impressive as the design.

Canabalt may be forgotten by most gamers, but it was the one and only mobile endless runner that spawned the massively popular genre. You should acknowledge Super Mario Run or any other game that requires you to tap to make an automatic-running character jump.

Call of Duty Mobile

The marketplace for Android and iOS is crowded with online shooters, but Call of Duty: Mobile is perhaps the best of the lot. This game features a slick and fast-paced multiplayer shooter and an extended Battle Royale mode. In addition, the controller support is excellent, and there are plenty of modes to choose from.

Clash of Clans

Clash of Clans is almost certainly the inspiration for any social town-building game or casual strategy game with an extremely intricate freemium structure. It’s either already out or wasn’t very good if it hasn’t launched before Clash of Clans. Maybe both.
