This was probably the best year for mobile games yet. Thanks to the ever increasing power of phones games can have better graphics, stories, controls, and console-quality gameplay. There were a ton of awesome mobile games this year and I couldn’t pick them all. I wanted to pick games that didn’t feel too repetitive or completely ripped you off with microtransactions which were also an even bigger problem this year.
Assassin’s Creed: Pirates
Pirates wasn’t just the best looking mobile game this year but also carved out a great feature from Black Flag and made a perfect port to mobile phones. There are so many missions to complete, upgrades to unlock, and the ship battles were just so much fun. It somehow steered away from the repetitious gameplay that most mobile games are plagued with and didn’t require micro transactions to play through.
