Playing games is always more fun when you do it with friends and there is no doubt about that! We previously talked about the most fun multiplayer games available on the Apple Arcade, but today we have something even better to share with you. Since playing games is better with friends, we have rounded up the best two-player games available for iPhones and iPads. The rule of thumb when selecting the games has been that they all need to feature fascinating game features and to be a blast to play. With that said, let’s into it.
#1 Heads Up
We are going to kick things off with none other than the famous Heads Up. This is a mobile version of charades and it is super fun to play. The rules are simple. You put your iPhone on your forehead and a word will pop up on your screen. Now, your friend needs to try and get you to guess what is the word featured on the screen. Things get hilarious when the name of a famous singer appears and you or your friend need to start singing or doing silly accents.
#2 Red Hands
How fast do you think your reflexes are? Red Hands is a sensational iPhone and iPad game that will test how fast you can move. One player takes the role of the attacker when the game begins and the other player becomes the defender. If the defender chickens out three times in a row, the attacker wins! However, this is not the only way to win in Red Hands. Both the attacker and the defender can gather points and the first one to get 10 points is declared the winner of the bout. You can also choose multiple hand designs, including Hulk’s massive palm!
#3 Finger Fights
Since we are talking about games that require physical activity, we had to introduce Finger Fights on the third spot on our list! This is more than a simple game, it’s actually a bundle that consists of multiple titles such as soccer fight, spider bounty, toy race, and many more others. The games are easy to understand and you will surely have a blast. We do need to mention that even though Finger Fights is free to play, some higher levels need to be purchased.
#4 8 Ball Pool
If there is one game that everyone loves playing on iPhones and iPads, then that game is 8 Ball Pool. This title is dubbed as the world’s “#1 pool game” available for mobiles and what makes it stand out is the fact that it can be played solo or with friends. To make things even better, 8 Ball Pool is equipped with a special feature that makes it possible for users to connect with their Facebook accounts and challenge their friends in online games. Users can also add 8 Ball Pool to their iMessage app drawer for easier access.
#5 Word Scramble
We want to end our list with an outstanding game for iPhones and iPads that is not only fun but also challenging. This is why we have picked Word Scramble to be featured on the fifth spot. After downloading and installing the game on your device, you will find yourself struggling to find the right words among letters. This might sound easy at first, but things get more difficult as the game progresses.
Word Scramble offers three modes: classic, blitz, and marathon. The classic mode is perfect if you are looking for a laidback experience, the blitz mode is fast and it will help you become an amazing speller while the last marathon mode is all about finding multiple words.
