3D Touch is a pretty cool concept for the iPhone 6s, even if it’s not quite fully realised yet.

While we’re still waiting for Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade to change everything when it comes to gaming, there’s a plethora of apps embracing the feature. Here are some of the best.

AG Drive

Ok, we lied. One game deserves mentioning already. AG Drive is a highly enjoyable futuristic racing game, and 3D Touch makes it better.

You can affect how fast you accelerate or brake, depending on how hard you hold your finger to the screen. It all feels suitably tactile and re-invigorates an already great game. Pretty cool, huh?
