Best Smartphone Games is a passion blog of mine that aims to fulfil a few goals:
- Help people discover amazing mobile games
- Help other developers create amazing mobile games
- Gather an audience for my own mobile indie games that I can promote and presen
In order to achieve these bullet points I have to provide a bit of value to all visitors. This Resources page is a hub that links out to all useful tools and articles destined to achieve those goals.
Game Discovery Resources
Game Discovery Resources are tools and pages specifically created to help you find the games you want to play.
- A sortable, searchable, list of Apple Arcade Games With Controller Support, screenshots and ratings.
- You can sort the list based on star rating, genre, name and number of players that it supports.
- All the games on that list feature Controller Support and the fact that it has screenshots is the cherry on top. Browse through the list, look at the screenshots and find your favorite game!
- An article that shows you how to find new games starting from a game you like. Aka find more games similar to your favorite one.
- D&D Guide for iOS: Find Out Which Dungeons & Dragons Game is best for your iPhone or iPad
- A list of Amazing Mobile Gaming Youtubers to help you discover and find new mobile games to play!
I’m also working on various other game discovery tools that I hope to finish before the end of 2022. On the Roadmap we have:
- List of Premium RPG’s for iOS with Controller Support
- iOS Games that work with the Magic Keyboard (or keyboard + mouse)
- iOS Games without Ads (non Apple Arcade)
