Action games are a hard sell on mobile, and they get even harder if the more precision they require. Stealth games are one such subgenre that just doesn’t feel like it could work well on small touchscreens where you’re prone to being distracted or mistapping by accident.
And yet, that hasn’t stopped plenty of developers of rising to the challenge to make some great stealth action games to enjoy on iOS. Here are our five favorites below, along with links to reviews so you can learn more about them.
Reflex Unit 2 will see players engaging in mech-based warfare, fending off waves and waves of autonomous robots that are threatening to destroy the planet. It's available now for iOS and Android.
Played from an isometric perspective, players will be able to take these powerful mechs out for a test drive in a variety of game modes, depending on their penchant for either solo or multiplayer fun. The single player campaign takes place over 9 missions with additional difficulties to unlock upon completion. There's also a co-op Campaign if you want to tackle these missions with another person
There hasn’t been much news from Supergiant Games on mobile lately regarding new games, but there’s something going on with their first game. Bastion released on the App Store in 2012, and back then it was published by Warner Bros. This Warner published version of the game has been delisted, but Supergiant has gone ahead and re-released the game, for free... kind of.

This new version of Bastion may be free to download, but has an in-app purchase for unlocking the full game. From now until 2020 though, this purchase is being offered at no cost, so make sure you grab the game before then.
A couple other things to note about this new version. First, it is optimized for newer screens, meaning it can fill your iPhone X or iPad Pro screen. On the not-so-great end of things, you aren’t able to take your save game from the original mobile release of Bastion over to this new one, and this new version has some performance issues. Playing it on my iPad Pro, there was noticeable stutter and dropped frames that hopefully get fixed with an update soon.

Luckily, Bastion is really, really good, especially when you can play it for free. So grab this new version, but then maybe wait for a patch or two before playing it again.
