5 Addictive First Person Shooter (FPS) games for iOS
Be it computer or console, FPS or First Person Shooters have always been my favorite genre of games, second to RPGs. I love using tactful weapons and gadgets to wipe out enemies and win battles. Sure, gone are the days when we used a mouse or controller to aim at enemies. Things have now changed to accelerometers and on-screen touch controls.
Therefore, to bring the same thrill and excitement to your iPhone and iPads, here are my top recommendations of FPS games to try. Let’s have a look.
1. Modern Combat 5: Blackout (Free)
Modern Combat 5: Blackout is the newest installment in the Modern Combat series and is unique in that it is free to install and play. It offers a single player mission mode with impressive graphics and a compelling storyline. However, the true excitement of the game can be found in its multiplayer mode.
In multiplayer mode, create a squad with friends and choose your player type: Assault, Heavy, Recon, Sniper, or Support. Gain experience with your team to obtain new items and skills.
The only issue is that, the game is free and has limitations. You cannot play continuously unless you pay. All in all, a perfect FPS multiplayer game to play with friends.
2. Sniper 3D Assassin: Shoot to Kill (Free)
If you love sniping and want an easy go-to game to sit, relax, and snipe villains, Sniper 3D Assassin is perfect for you. No need to run around in alleys or take cover. You will receive contracts to kill individuals.
There are numerous missions to play. As you level up, you can purchase and improve rifles. Like other modern games, you must gather coins and diamonds during missions to upgrade your guns. The game also features energy bars, with each game requiring a few bars. The number of games you can play at once depends on your level and the mission. You can choose to make in-app purchases for convenience, but this removes the game’s challenge.
The graphics are impressive, but there’s a lot of blood and messy headshots. I don’t recommend it to anyone below 16 years old.
3. Dead Trigger 2 (Free)
Dead Trigger 2 is a zombie game where you shoot anything that isn’t human. The game starts with easy missions, making gameplay effortless. Just aim at the zombies and the gun will fire automatically. However, as you progress, you’ll find yourself surrounded by flesh-eating zombies.
The game is tough and full of blood, but you will have engineers and helpers making new gadgets for you to fight zombies. The chicken bomb is my personal favorite.
You can engage in online play and tournaments with exciting prizes. The weapons are brutal, which is necessary for flash-hungry zombies. Give the game a try, it’s free to play, with optional in-app purchases.
4. N.O.V.A. 3 – Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance (Paid: $6.99)
If you are looking for a perfect sci-fi game to play on iOS, Nova 3 from Gameloft is an awesome FPS game with futuristic gameplay. This was my first FPS game on Android, and even after completing the amazing 10 levels there, I still played it on my iPhone after switching.
NOVA 3 is an action-packed game with a captivating story. You collect various weapons, such as rocket launchers and a bazooka, throughout the gameplay. Alongside the weapons, you possess stun powers. Additionally, you can drive vehicles and heavy mechanical robots to the enemy area.
NOVA is a paid app, but you receive offers and discounts from Gameloft occasionally. Keep an eye on offers to see if you find a deal.
5. Call of Duty: Strike Team (Paid: $6.99)
Call of Duty, or COD, is my favorite FPS game on computers and consoles. Call of Duty: Strike Team combines first-person and tactical third-person shooting. The developer has tried to capture the best of both worlds. You can choose between them.
You can play individually, shooting enemies to progress, or take on the role of a commander, overseeing your squad from a drone’s perspective. You have the flexibility to switch between modes during gameplay, although certain missions may only allow for one mode.
The controls are great and you won’t feel like anything is missing on a touch screen. The assisted aim is a useful addition that makes playing on handhelds easy, although some gamers might see it as cheating. The weapons are like any other COD game and the story line is strong. The $6.99 price tag might seem high, but that’s the one-time payment you need to make and you can play the game for hours without any additional purchases.
These were 5 favorite FPS games. There are many more games available apart from these 5, but I would recommend you start your journey from one in the list. If you would like to recommend any of your favorite games, comment.
