iOS is seen by many to be the platform of choice for those serious about gaming on the go, but is this true?
I took a look at the top 10 iOS games (as at 21st January 2012) and they are as follows-
- NFL Flick Quarterback *
- Angry Birds *
- Fifa 12
- Fruit Ninja *
- Angry Birds Seasons *
- Where’s My Water *
- Doodle Jump *
- Words With Friends *
The titles marked with an ‘*’ are also available in the Android Market and of the three that are not, Fifa 10 is available on Android (Fifa 12 supposedly coming soon), Hatchi is brand new and so is Catchphrase.
When you further consider that the Angry Birds titles are free on Android, you start to build a picture of minimal differences between the two when it comes to gaming. Titles like Riptide GP, which is stunning on Android, prove that the gaming capacities of both platforms are very high and a further look at the top 50 games would likely go further in proving my theory.
When it comes to mobile gaming, there is no one king of the hill. No matter what mobile platform you are using, you should be able to find enough games to suit your needs.
