It’s easy to look at mobile and see it as a wasteland for content; particularly with all the casual, free-to-play games, and especially the ones that seem to de-emphasize actual gameplay in favor of stronger monetization. That’s only if you’re not paying attention. Serious, core games – some even free-to-play – had a great year on iOS.

Oceanhorn was hyped for a good reason: it was beautiful and ambitious. That ambition didn’t entirely pay off in my opinion, but for the game to have succeeded financially is a huge step forward for gaming on mobile.

Oceanhorn-3It also felt like the barriers between mobile and PC/console games started to blur a bit. Frozen Synapse, Mode 7’s highly acclaimed PC strategy game, landed on iPad at last. Limbo received an excellent port. Leviathan: Warships brought cross-platform online play – and the best trailer of the year. Space Hulk was not perfect, but it made for an exceptional transition.

But perhaps few did it as spectacularly as XCOM: Enemy Unknown. That game proved that it was possible to take a massive console and PC title – a fantastic modern take on one of the greatest strategy games of all time – and put it on mobile without losing any of the experience. Firaxis also absolutely stuck the landing with Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol and its Pacific Skies followup; original games that went to PC later.

Gameloft is quickly getting down to business with the new controllers coming to iOS as they’ve added support for both Logitech and MOGA controllers. Dungeon Hunter 4 and Gangstar Vegas are two titles that work with both controllers, while Asphalt 8: Airborne currently works only with Logitech’s controller.

“At Gameloft, we continue our involvement in the Apple ecosystem by introducing Dungeon Hunter 4 and Gangstar Vegas for the iOS 7 extended controller API and Asphalt 8: Airborne for the standard controller,” said Baudouin Corman, Gameloft VP of Publishing for the Americas. “Our goal is to be at the forefront of mobile gaming innovation, and by supporting Apple in this next step, we are supporting the ever-evolving iOS gaming landscape.”

Gameloft’s high speed racing title is about to be flying high on iOS devices as Asphalt 8: Airborne releases next week, August 22nd. The game features a new graphics engine that will make all those races and crazy stunts look even more beautiful. Also, while Asphalt 8 works fine on iPad 2 or later and iPhone 4 or later, it’s still recommended that you play it on the iPhone 5 or iPad 4, reports Pocket Gamer.

Gimme now!

Modern Combat 5: This flagship Gameloft first-person shooter (FPS) title is now at number five, with a new engine that the folks at E3 can’t talk about, but boy is it pretty. PLan to play this one out loud sometime before the end of the year.

Brothers in Arms 3: Another shooter, this one is less dual stick control, and more about flicking, swiping and tapping. I had a much better time here, killing more baddies than in MC5, but that’s just how I roll. Oh, and there’s slo-mo kill cam for those special headshot moments.

Minions Run: An endless runner starring everyone’s favorite little yellow dudes, the minions from Despicable Me. The game is planned to release next week, just in time for the movie, Despicable Me 2.

Asphalt 8: Hard to believe this racing series has been going on so long. Gameloft kicks it up another notch with a new racer that we should get to play sometime before the end of this current year. 148Apps founder, Jeff Scott, tries out the new Infected mode in the video below, but we’ve also been told there’s a sweet new Drift mode, as well. Very pretty!

Total Conquest: I’m not going to call this one a clone, but boy does it look a LOT like Clash of Clans, which to be honest was a clone itself. Regardless, it’s pretty, and set in Ancient Rome. Yay, Rome!
