On the note of these, I'd just like to point something out: The upcoming "Appocalypse" on iOS.

In short, a huge number of games are going to outright stop working, permanently, when the next version of the operating system is released. Some developers have come around and updated their games to prevent this, but a great many devs, who have moved on to other projects, do not update their older games (even if they're not that old).

There is only one solution to this: Never update. Ever.

Yeah, it's a bit extreme, but there's no other option. I've heard that many players will be refusing the updates, whereas others are resigned to it. It's up to what you use the device for; note that OS updates are not truly necessary for a device's basic functionality. Your phone isnt going to die if it doesnt get the latest stupid update.

In my case, I have *alot* of games that would get forever ruined, so my iPad is not receiving the update, period. At some point, maybe around Christmas, I'll buy another one. That one can be updated and use new stuff that might not be compatible with the old versions, while my current iPad can stick around and be awesome.


Anyway, on topic: I have too many such games to count. I dont use my phone for it though, the thing is too small and I'm nearsighted. I use my iPad. I have a ton of bullet-hell games on there and other funky things.

I have always disliked phone operating systems, but that takes the cake. Apple users should be outraged over this, but they won't be.

Plenty are, but like with any outrage that, say, Microsoft makes (which for me is every 20 minutes or so... seriously Windows is the worst) they dont get a single bit of choice in the matter.

At least with this it's not FORCED on you... the update wont download unless you allow it. Unlike Windows, where not only was it forced, it was literally HIDDEN from you if you had tried to stop it too many times. They virused their newest version to some people. It was pathetic. Among other really nasty tactics they'd tried. But like any gigantic corporate trash heap, they get away with stuff like that.

True, but unlike Windows or any other popular operating system I can think of you can't roll back iOS, at least not without a significant amount of forethought.

I used to have that phone too! It was so awesome! I was disappointed when they didn't make an Xperia Play 2.

Games don't really have the same appeal as they used to on my mobile - I played candy crush for a while.

Some of the best addictive mobile games I've played were snake on the Nokia 3310 and I loved a tennis game on a matrix style Nokia phone I owned , I tried to google the game but the only one I could find was Racket but I don't remember it looking like that?

I play Covet Fashion, Design Home, Love Nikki Dress Up Queen daily. I've also been hooked on Monument Valley (one of the most beautiful games I've ever seen. Completed a while ago but I might replay it soon) Tengami, Angry Birds, Candy Crush, Soda Crush, Temple Run, Tiny Wings (a favorite), Sudoku, Bingo, Flow Free & Pocket Mine.

I don't go on my phone that much, but I must admit, I am a rather big fan of Love Live School Idol Festival, and you wouldn't believe how excited I am for the upcoming LLSIF All Stars game. :oops:
I'm tempted to start playing THE [email protected]: Cinderella Girls too, but apparently it's hard to get into if you weren't into the franchise from day one.

I've also recently started playing a Chinese game called Azur Lane (it's quite similar to a web game I already play called Kantai Collection, but with different game mechanics).

So yeah, as you can tell I'm mainly into games about anime-style girls. :P
