iPhone And iPad Games We'd Like To See On The Amazon Fire
Amazon made a big splash with its upcoming smartphone. Here are the games we most want to play.
We're very excited about Amazon's Fire Phone. The front-facing 3D cameras enable the dynamic perspective head-tracking features, which would make some of our favorite iOS titles even cooler than before. That said, we have some choice iPhone and iPad games that should make the jump to Amazon's smartphone.
Oceanhorn: Zelda's mobile clone should get cozy by the Fire
This game draws its influence from Zelda and makes no qualms about it. Its lush graphics and polished gameplay will shine on Fire's 2.2GHz quad-core processor. It's not without its faults, but with Fire's processor coupled with its dynamic perspective and 1280x720 resolution, it would be a nice addition to the Google Play library.
Infinity Blade 3: Hack and slash your way to Nirvana
We get goosebumps thinking about this game on Amazon's Fire. It shines on the iOS and looks amazing on iPad retina displays. We've seen this game evolve from gorgeous one-on-one slashing battles with little story to a compelling plot with more depth and advances in gameplay; don't forget about the additional playable character, skill perks and crafting. A game that sets a visual benchmark for what could be done on the iOS platform, Infinity Blade 3 raised the bar on the level of visual detail developers could accomplish on iOS.
Republique: Look around the corner dynamically in this stealth-action thriller
As a big budget stealth-action touch game on iOS, Republique may have changed the face of the genre. Considered a masterpiece among mobile gamers, Republique delivers a fun, exciting and polished stealth-action game that plays entirely on one touch, aside from a pinch gesture to zoom. The OMNI-view gameplay mechanic would be right at home with Fire's dynamic perspective.
Star Horizon: Set your eyes on the future of mobile gaming
A recent addition to the App store, Star Horizon is a very impressive-looking space shooter that takes some cues from Nintendo's classic Star Fox. Taking a wild adventure through the stars along paths filled with enemies, obstacles and intense dog fights, this game would benefit from Fire's head tracking capabilities and dynamic perspective.
We recapped a few of our favorite iOS games that could potentially shine on Amazon's Fire. If you feel we missed a few, drop us a line in the comments below.
