You can't be a lone wolf all the time, especially if you want to show off your gaming prowess. And that's where this list comes in - we're running down what we think are the top 5 multiplayer games for iPhone. There might be some controversial choices, but we're alright with that. 148Apps loves controversy IDST.
Obviously multiplayer games can be pretty subjective, so we'd love to hear if you've got a favorite that we haven't included. Let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article, or give us a shout on our Facebook or our Twitter. We love to chat.
Oh, and if you're interested in reading more of our awesome lists, all you need to do is click on this link right here. Right, now all that's out of the way, let's get on with the best multiplayer games for iPhone.
It was a pretty difficult decision whether to put PUBG or Fortnite on this list, but in the end we plumped for Epic's shooter because it's got a bigger playerbase. They're both much of a muchness really (if you're done with Fortnite and you're looking for something similar, downloading PUBG wouldn't be a bad thing), but Fortnite just feels a little more polished, a little more precise, and a little more suited to mobile than PUBG.
Where Fortnite is a thick and juicy proposition that fits as well on console as it does on mobile, Clash Royale offers up some more mobile-friendly fare. Its three minute battles to the death are some of the best we've seen, and the frantic last minute with the extra mana is probably the finest new idea we've seen in mobile gaming in years. Clash Royale basically gets everything right, and you should play it if you haven't.
Another MOBA, but this one takes a different tack from Clash Royale. It's essentially a fully featured online battler that just happens to work in the palm of your hand. There are plenty of other MOBAs on the App Store, but this one strikes all of the right chords in all of the right ways. If you're looking for a hefty multiplayer game that's going to take away days of your life, then Vainglory or the next game on the list are your best bets.
There's so much to see and do in Hearthstone, and it's updated at such regular intervals, that it's easy to see how it made it onto this list. It requires a good deal of effort and time to even start to get to grips with everything the game has to offer, but you can play on your phone, tablet, or PC, so there's never a reason not to play. Hearthstone is Blizzard showing the world how card games should be done, and if you haven't yet, it's probably time to start paying attention.
Ah our slightly left-field choice. All of the other games on this list require some sort of hefty time investment if you want to get the most out of them. Not so Axe.io. It's a super-fast, super-fun battle to the death that you can pick up and understand in a matter of seconds. The other games on the list might be brilliant multiplayer games, but for our money Axe.io is the perfect example of a brilliant mobile multiplayer game.
