[Update] The best iPhone and iPad games with iOS 7 / MFi controller support

Time for a thumb war (Updated with 39 extra games)

Product: iOS controllers | Manufacturer: Apple
 
Updated on August 5th, at 17:35: This feature is long overdue an update, and with the news that upcoming iOS port BioShock will support MFi pads, we decided it was now or never.

We've done some spring cleaning, and added JoyJoy, Deathsmiles, R-Type, Blazing Star, Age of Zombies, Battle Supremacy, Meltdown, Republique, Shadowblade, and Powerpuff Girls.

And The Wolf Among Us, Lego Star Wars: The Complete Trilogy, Traps n' Gemstones, Badland, Godfire, Jet Set Radio, Super Crossfighter, Type:Rider, Clarc, Thomas Was Alone, Metal Slug 3, Fluid SE, Pivvot, and Impossible Road.

And Mikey Hooks, Bike Baron, 2-bit Cowboy, Leo's Fortune, Cordy 2, The King of Fighters '98 and '97, Big Action Mega Fight!, Final Fantasy IV, Across Age 2, Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite, Secret of Mana, Flashout 2, Jet Car Stunts 2, and 2K Drive.

See, I said it needed an update.



So you've got yourself an MFi controller. Or you're thinking about buying one. Either way, you need to know what games actually work with the darn thing.

We've put together a list of games you should check out with your new joypad. It's not an exhaustive list but, like everything at Pocket Gamer, it's been heavily curated so it only contains the best games.

Some of these might require the extended controller, which has analogue sticks and more shoulder buttons. Check the individual App Store descriptions for more information on all that.

Republique

Leo's Fortune

Racing



RPG

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite

One to add to this - launching tomorrow - Touch Racing 2. It's utterly great. If you like classic arcade racers like Micro Machines or Super Sprint, hopefully you'll love this too. You can download it free on the App Store - https://itunes.apple.com/app/touch-racing-2/id778549894?ls=1&mt=8

You can check afterpad.com. Lists all the MFi apps and tells if it requires extended controllers or not.

"How can i play CoD strike team with my logitech powershell ? :("

You can't CoD: Strike Team requires thumb sticks/extended controllers. The powershell doesn't have 2 thumbsticks.

I'd probably call Republique an Adventure game. Doesn't seem very action-oriented. Doesn't really seem to be on my device right now either due to that huge file size.

Here is a good Free App to test your Controllers, since most games does not use all the funcions of these gamepads, worth a look:

On the iOS page for Lego Star Wars, it says it's comparable with iOS comtrollers too, so how come it's not on this list?
