Many people buy Apple’s iPhones and iPads not only to use them to make calls or surf the net, but also to play games on them when there’s much free time. And which are the coolest games one can play on a cool phone? Right, RPGs and MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games).

Yeah, I know that one can play simpler games like Angry Birds or Sudoku, too, but well, you can play these on all other phones, too. But if you have a brand-new Apple iPhone 5, you’ll definitely want to try a more “serious” game on it.

6). Ingress

Ingress iPhone MMORPG IconApparently, this is one of the first augmented-reality-laced MMORPG and it’s backed by Google. Ingress more or less happens in the real world, our earth and it’s very exciting because it’s almost too realistic to be discarded as a game. At times, it really gets eerily close to being some kind of a reality where you’re fighting along with a thousand other people. In real-time.

Ingress’s theme is that some mysterious energy is taking hold of our world and influencing the way we think. It’s up to to you decide if it’s good or bad and based on that decision, you go about fighting it or fighting people who are resisting it. Has a small learning curve followed by intense, strategic gameplay.

Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

There are a gazillion roles you can take up. Be an invader, a warrior, a trader or an overlord plotting massive tactical warfare across the universe. If you’re looking to get out of the mythical and ancient-looking MMORPGs, this is where you should start.
