Not only have the devices to play mobile games become more impressive, but the games themselves only continue to become more realistic and entertaining.

There is certainly no lack of mobile game apps to choose from for your iPhone, with hundreds of new gaming apps being developed every year.

Let’s look at a few of the more popular game apps for download in 2019.

Favorite iPhone Game Apps 2019

With thousands of game apps to choose from, it can be daunting to try to figure out the best game app to download to your iPhone.

Here are some popular choices:

  • Grid Autosport
  • Super Crossfighter
  • NBA Jam
  • Typeshift
  • Reigns: Game of Thrones

Grid Autosport

For gamers that are serious about speed, and are looking for a console-quality level racing game, then Grid Autosport is a great option.

If you have a fairly recent iPhone version, iPhone SE or later, then Grid Autosport will be a compatible download.

If you are used to playing racing games on a video game console, like PlayStation or Xbox, then this game may be about as close as you can come for a mobile game app.

You will be able to create your own racing season to test your reaction time and driving prowess.

Super Crossfighter

Do you miss the outer space blasting action of Space Invaders? Super Crossfighter offers a modern day version of the old Atari classic.

Super Crossfighter operates at a much faster pace than the Space Invaders legacy game, with colorfully dynamic game screens.

Like Space Invaders, you can navigate your ship all over the screen from top to bottom to avoid attack, and line up accurate shots at your enemy.


Here is another modernized version of an old school classic.

If you like basketball, and players with giant cartoon heads, then NBA Jam is exactly what you are looking for.

For those unfamiliar with NBA Jam, it is a 2 on 2 format where you are able to pick your favorite NBA team.

All fouls are out the window in this physical game, where elbows to the face are considered legal defense.

Hit multiple shots in a row for your players to heat up and eventually catch fire. Boomshakalaka!


If you are a fan of word games and puzzles, then Typeshift can provide some definite entertainment.

Typeshift offers a crossword style set up that employs the use of anagrams and cryptic clues.

Unlike your traditional crossword puzzle on paper, the grid of words in typeshift is not static. You can drag and drop columns to rearrange them to your advantage.

To complete a puzzle, all of the letters must be used. The free download of the app offers a modest selection of puzzles and game grids.

This is a great app to download to your iPhone to stimulate your mind when you have some time to kill.

Reigns: Game of Thrones

You don’t have to be an avid watcher of the Game of Thrones TV series to enjoy this game, but it certainly helps.

The goal of this strategy game is to keep your spot on the iron throne. In order to do that, you will have to make several decisions that will affect your loyal subjects in one way or another. Too many poor decisions and you may find your approval ratings dipping drastically.

Decisions are made tinder-style, by swiping right or left. With good writing and deep content, this game app can entertain for hours when downloaded to your Apple iPhone.
