Epic Games has defied the App Store Monopoly. In retaliation, Apple is blocking Fortnite from a billion devices.
There is a diverse lineup of mobile games out there, which means there’s something for everybody. If you’re a gamer (you probably already know) or if you want to be a gamer, here are the best mobile video games you should play in 2020.
Mobile games are becoming an increasingly prominent option in the gaming industry with many portable devices to play on. Mobile games can keep you entertained for hours on end, and the quality of the games available is only getting better. Keep reading to find out about the best mobile video games you should play in 2020.
There’s a good chance you’ve probably heard about Fortnite because it’s one of the most popular games in the world, available on both iOS and Android devices. Not only is the game free-to-play, but you can also play with friends regardless of what platform they are playing on.
However, Fortnite’s existence on mobile is threatened. Earlier this week Epic Games, the maker of Fortnite, reported publicly that Apple has threatened to “terminate all [Epic Games’] developer accounts and cut Epic Games off from iOS and Mac development tools” on August 28, 2020, according to a statement. Apple has already removed Fortnite from the iOS App Store. Apple’s action occurred after an update to Fortnite prevent’s Apple’s 30 percent cut of revenue. Apple will forgive the restriction if Epic Games reverses the update. Battle Royal and Creative are free-to-play, but Save the World is pay-to-play. So far, Epic Games has replied with a lawsuit.
The lawsuit against Apple asks for preliminary injunctive relief to prevent harm to Epic Games before the case even goes to judgement. The proposed preliminary injunction would restrain Apple from removing and de-listing Fortnite, which has already occurred, and would prevent Apple from taking actions against Epic’s other titles and its Unreal Engine that is used by other businesses.
Mario Kart Tour
Nintendo recently made their games available for Android and iOS devices, and one of the best games to play is Mario Kart Tour. Tour has the charm of regular Mario Kart games of the past, but now you can play it right on your smartphone.
Another Nintendo game that took the world by storm a few years ago was Pokémon Go. The game allows you to venture outside and catch ‘em all with augmented reality technology. This mobile game is still thriving to this day and is the perfect game to play in the summer.
With school starting, and mostly via remote learning, it will be interesting to see how popularity might change, or what changes in game practices may occur.
If you are looking for a mobile card game, then Hearthstone is a great one to delve deep into. Hearthstone takes place within the Warcraft series and is also a free-to-play game. The game is incredibly popular and has been running since 2014.
Words With Friends
Words with Friends also came out a few years ago, but it’s recently had a resurgence, which is why it is still one of the best mobile video games you should play in 2020. Words With Friends is very similar to scrabble as you compete in a crossword puzzle-like game with friends and family. It’s not only fun, but it can also test your vocabulary.
