The Best iOS Games to use with PS4 Controllers

1. Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm

The Zelda series Legend is one of the most popular game franchises and iOS carries the Zelda format in Oceanhorn 2: the knights of the Lost Kingdom on its own. This game is a precursor to the Oceanhorn and has a strong action-RPG period for over 15 hours. You will get the console-style gameplay into a portable package and there’s plenty of puzzles, dungeons, and massive boss fighting around. Because Oceanhorn 2 demands quite a bit of movement accuracy, a controller is much more enjoyable to have an exciting adventure and can quickly frustrate the more complicated part of the game.

2. Exit the Gungeon

Exit the Gungeon taking Enter the Gungeon’s frenzy and bullet-hell gameplay, flipping it sideways. You would have to scale the Gungeon quickly to plunder or be torn down in the fall of the floors. This is not an easy game and a joystick helps you to pull rough jumps and shots with far easier handling than with touch controls.

3. Sneaky Sasquatch

You’re a sasquatch man and must be sly so that mankind eventually finds out about the lost link. Although Sneaky Sasquatch provides a lot of fun, stealthy play with touch controls is frustrating. It is much easier to move the sasquatch through camps and rob food such as a somewhat more mammalian Yogi Bear if you have full directional control, and a control pad is a joy for Sly Sasquatch.

4. Sayonara Wild Hearts

Sayonara Wild Hearts, like a neon fantasy, takes you through an interpretive journey through the heartbreak of a child. While it has entirely serviceable touch controls, some spots require you to respond with breakneck speed. Swiping just doesn’t always have the precision to get you out of the way of incoming obstacles, especially at one level where they’re being teleported right in front of you.
