If you picked up an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus over the weekend, you’re probably enjoying its larger display and refined build—we certainly are. But one thing you might have noticed is that many apps haven’t yet been optimized for the bigger screens, making them look a bit blurry and busted in use. It’s like the transition to Retina displays all over again, and disappointing for sure.
Luckily, most existing games look fine on the new devices, particularly when there isn’t much text in play—but when you buy a brand new phone, you want everything to look awesome on it. And when it comes to games, you want ones that are really putting that extra processing power to great use.
Not all of these games are big, glossy showcase titles, but all have been optimized for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus—whether it’s tweaking the screen dimensions to fit the new displays, adding better effects, or tapping into Apple’s Metal graphics framework in iOS 8 to deliver faster, smoother, and more detailed visuals throughout.
