Default What's your favourite phone game?

I'm looking to find a good game for my phone and need help. I hade Pokémon Go but because I'm in such a small rural community, it was really difficult to improve. I played a couple other games but I'd get to the point that you would have to spend money to advance.

I'd love to find a good NES/SNES emulator to be able to play some classic games you could just play and not think too much about. LOVED the old Sim City game, zelda, techmo superbowl and stuff like that.

Any suggestions?

What about gacha games? Raid: Shadow Legends or Geshin Impact.

You mentioned emulators, it would help to know what kind of phone do you have.

When it comes to console emulators, Android is going to give you a lot more options solely thanks to being able to sideload apps onto the device easily.


There are ways to install console emulators on iOS devices without a jailbreak (see here for some examples) but they use enterprise certificates, and free sites will generally require you to revisit the site to re-download the certificate and emulator as often as every week (or as long as ~2 months). The pay-per-year sites are a bit better in this respect.

Sim City is available on iOS. Have played it a fair bit and it's pretty good considering the device size.

Rocket League is awesome, TeamFight Tactics for auto battler, Wild Rift if you like League of Legends at all, and I highly recommend Diablo Immortal when it releases, I had a lot of fun in the beta.

Edit: Rocket League and Diablo both have controller support

As mentioned above, phone gaming is mostly dead to me with all the cash grabbing disgusting microtransaction BS that is so typical of the ecosystem it seems.

Anything Kairosoft is still good for me though.

Might only be available on iOS then. Let Sliver know that’s a +1 for iPhone users who live in the NW.

Oh, you can get that one. I mean the very first Sim City, the very basic one, I've always liked that more than the rest.

I’m all about Football Manager. Always been a great, expansive simulation.
