The debate around iOs and Android gaming and which is the better of the two are sure to rumble on for years to come, seeing as both mobile operating systems are incredibly popular and have benefits that suit various individuals’ needs depending on their preferences.
A look back in history will show you just how far we’ve come in terms of mobile technology and the gaming creations developers can now bring to us. The likes of Snake on our old Nokia bricks feels like centuries ago considering where we are today and the vast array of quality gaming offerings we can access at the touch of a button.
From the likes of Angry Birds, to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, to the popular Buffalo Blitz game at casino.com and the countless of other hit games that have been brought to us, we really are in a golden age of gaming.
But with some games only accessible if you’re an Android user and others only available to iOs users, what are the best games that are available on both? Below, we find out and highlight some of the best games users of both operating systems can enjoy together.
A game that requires you and all of your friends to be in the same physical area, Spaceteam is a fun offering which has all the chaos and madness you’ll need as you and your friends need to work together to help save a spaceship with various issues wrong with it. You need to communicate with each other by shouting various different made-up space commands to help save the spaceship or, somewhat inevitably, you’ll crash and die.
A Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game, similar to the likes of the hugely popular League of Legends, Vainglory is another team game with epic battling throughout. Teaming up in 5v5 or 3v3 modes against other players or bots and choosing one of over 40 heroes, this free app allows you to go head-to-head against another team to destroy their Vain crystal before they do the same to yours. Traveling through the jungle, you can annihilate enemy turrets and minions, using your special powers and, most crucially of all, by working together.

This best-selling game is known to even the most casual gamer and perhaps even those who don’t game at all with its humongous mass appeal and huge following thanks to the PC version of the game. But now, the mobile version of Minecraft is here and it’s almost identical to the PC version, with the only differences being that you can’t connect third-party mods or use third-party servers. Also, which is fairly typical, any update that comes out for Minecraft won’t come out for the mobile versions until a later date. Still, Minecraft is still a classic creation which can now be enjoyed on mobile devices on the go, with family and friends due to its cross-compatibility.
Another game you must have heard of – unless you’ve been living under a rock for a good few years, of course – Pokemon Go has been, quite simply, a massive success on both Android and iOs devices. When it was released, Pokemon Go smashed the glass ceiling for AR (Augmented Reality) gaming – which was a new development at the time – bringing Pikachu and friends into the real world. You and your friends, no matter the platform, can go out into the world and have a search around for the various Pokemon and take part in the challenges that come your way.
