As every few months pass by, it seems that mobile technology has advanced a little further each time. When you look back at the first mobile games like snake on the Nokia and then compare it to today’s efforts, you’ll see just how advanced mobile technology is getting. So what are the games available on mobile devices with the best graphics? Well, we think that the following six are definitely up there with the very best.
- Call of Duty: Strike Team
Any gamer among you will have played or at least heard of the Call of Duty franchise that has released many games on the PC and consoles over the years. It would not be like them to not try and get involved with the blossoming mobile gaming niche, however, and this is the best work that they have done so far.
The graphics on this edition of Call of Duty are of a very high standard and the action is what you’d expect from this franchise. The game is played on a smaller scale to the original games but this has to be expected considering it’s a mobile game.
- World of Tanks Blitz
If you have ever played World of Tanks on the PC, you’ll be thrilled to know that World of Tanks Blitz, which is a smaller version of the game, is available to be played across Android, iOS and Windows 10. Graphically, the game is excellent when you consider the devices that it is played on and the capabilities that they have. Of course, it does not look quite as crisp as the full PC game that requires a good independent graphics card to play it, but it still looks fantastic.
On the Blitz version, instead of having two teams of 15 tanks competing against each other, you have 7 tanks instead. Every player is in control of their own tank on the battlefield and has to work as part of the team to win the battle against the other team. Players have a choice of using light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks and tank destroyers, and have to form a good strategy through teamwork.
- Rival Knights
Rival Knights is another mobile game that has excellent graphics. It’s completely different to most games on this list as it involves you taking on the role of a Knight that takes part in jousting competitions. Essentially, every time you win, you’re able to improve your Knights skills and his equipment but you’ll also come up against better quality opposition as well.
You’ll be amazed at the graphics that the game has, especially when you actually do the jousts. Everything seems to be in full HD graphics and all the movements and animations are perfectly smooth. If racing and shooting is not your thing, you should definitely give Rival Knights a run-out.
- Modern Combat 5: Blackout
Graphically excellent, Modern Combat 5 is without a doubt one of the best mobile games available to play. People were originally not convinced that FPS (first-person shooter) games would ever be able to make the transition over to mobile devices, yet Modern Combat throughout its many releases has proved that it can be done.
Those concerns centered on a few things, the graphic levels required and the lower processing power that mobile devices have to power them. Additionally, concerns arose about whether developers could come up with effective control methods compared to those that are available on consoles and computers. As Modern Combat 5 has proved, however, each of these concerns was unfounded. We can certainly expect much more high-quality FPS games to come in the future.
- Dead Trigger 2
Developed by Madfinger Games, Dead Trigger 2 is another FPS game that is leading the way in terms of graphics on mobile games. The theme of the game is different to that of Modern Combat 5, in that you’re tasked with fighting off armies of zombies that are spreading across the world due to a virus.
As for the control mode on this game, you have the option of allowing the computer to shoot automatically or you can do everything manually if you feel confident enough. You have to be quick though as there are many types of zombies that each their own strengths and weaknesses. Some will be slow and powerful; others will be fast and annoying and you’ll also come against bosses as well. All in all, Dead Trigger 2 is a fun and addictive mobile game that will more than fill up your time when needed.
- Asphalt 8:Airbourne
Racing game lovers will be in awe at the graphics that are on display in Asphalt 8, a game that has taken mobile racing to a whole new level. Offering tons of cars, game-mode and other content, Asphalt is easily the best mobile racing game around at the moment. Developed by Gameloft, who’re also the guys behind Modern Combat 5, Asphalt 8 uses some innovative controlling methods that include tilting the screen and using buttons on the screen for brakes.
When you actually get into the racing, you’ll see that it’s fast, furious and quite brutal most of the time. Races can contain up to 8 players that can not only race each other but can also knock out their opponents by boosting into them. Asphalt is a seriously fun racing game that just has to be tried on your mobile device.
As you can see from the above mobile games, the graphics are absolutely outstanding and the best part is, graphics on mobile devices are only going to improve further in the future. You can just imagine what the games and their graphics could be like in a further ten years time! It’s an exciting time to be a gamer right now with the choice and quality that is all around us.
