The 5 Best First-Person Shooter Games on iPhone

Some may argue that mobile gaming is suitable for Candy Crush only, which means they are missing out on numerous top-class mobile games. Mobile gamers can enjoy multiple strategy games, racing simulators, and even first-person shooters. The latter is considered a PC-only entertainment, but we've got 5 reasons to prove the naysayers wrong.

Doom Classic

If you love FPS, you must play the game that spawned the genre in the first place. Doom Classic is available for iPhone and iPad, and it offers you to chainsaw your way through four game levels. It includes an original soundtrack, three different control methods to give you the best experience, and all iconic weapons, such as a double-barrel shotgun and the all-mighty BFG 9000.

N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition

Want to get some of those Crysis vibes on your smartphone? N.O.V.A. 3: Freedom Edition is an intense plot-driven sci-fi action. Here your goal is to reclaim Earth in the span of 10 deadly missions scattered across the galaxy. Shoot your way through several types of alien threats with weapons of your choice. It's worth mentioning the smooth controls the game delivers.

If you are in for some PvP, N.O.V.A. 3 has a multiplayer mode. Grab your friends and join 12-person fights on 7 different maps. There are 7 modes available, with drivable vehicles and an in-game voice chat.

Call of Duty Mobile

Did you know that the legendary series had a mobile version? Moreover, it offers almost the same number of features available to PC and console gamers! Though it doesn't feature a single-player campaign, multiplayer battles with a battle royal mode will keep you entertained for thousands of hours. The modes, weapons, and even the maps are mostly the same as in the main game.

The controls are fine as soon as you get used to all the buttons and indicators. Because the game comes for free, it obviously has microtransactions, but they are not too obnoxious.

Into the Dead 2

You might remember the predecessor of this game — a simple runner where you had to maneuver through a hoard of zombies for as long as you can. The second part developed this concept, added a decent story with various characters and cut scenes, spiced up the scenery with buildings and events, and provided the player with a whole bunch of guns. You have to survive through several chapters to find your family and also get plenty of powerups and weapons.


If you are a fan of both dark crime stories and sniper shooters, you'll love Lonewolf. In this game, you'll take the role of a hitman and dive into a dark plot of assassination. With your reliable sniper rifle, you'll face various challenges like taking out alarms, finding your target using its description, or engaging without killing. The game has realistic ballistics, and you'll have to compensate for distance and wind speed and shoot through obstacles. It also has bonus levels with target practice and even a duck hunt.
