The iPhone 6 Plus is a game-changer for Apple. It’s not the first big-screen smartphone but it’s rapidly become one of the best smartphones released this year. Big screens are great for a lot of things and one of them is gaming. Apple seems to have been very aware of this fact. This is why they added the Metal framework to get the best gaming experience off the chips on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

Gaming on the iPhone 6 Plus is a whole new experience because, for the first time, you’ll be gaming on the iPhone with a screen as big as 5.5″ – that’s a huge screen real-estate. We’ve cherry-picked a few games that, right now, look amazing on the iPhone 6 Plus, as if they’ve been built specifically for this device. Take a look:

The Best iPhone Games That Look Stunning On the iPhone 6 Plus

#1. Modern Combat 5: Blackout

Modern Combat 5 iPhone 6 Plus Game

Gameloft’s Modern Combat is a popular first-person shooter game where you take on spine-chilling missions across the globe. This update brings even more, but with one major upgrade: the game now uses Apple’s Metal framework for kickass graphics and performance. It’s optimized for iPhone 6 and 6+ but looks awesome on the bigger screen.

Tons of customizable options, a wide range of combat missions (single player, squad, etc.) and a bunch of cool rewards in all limited-time events can keep you glued to this one.

#2. Epic Zen Garden

Epic Zen Garden iPhone 6 Plus Game

Zen Garden by Epic Games is not really a game. It’s more of a demonstration of what a game can do with the Metal framework and the improved graphic chips on iPhone 6+ (and 6). You can do a bunch of stuff that will qualify as ruffling the leaves and testing the waters.

While it’s only a demo, there’s a lot of territory to explore and that gives you an idea of how cool your iPhone 6+ really is.

#3. Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8 for iPhone 6 Plus

One user described this as a “beast of a game” and that kind of sums up Asphalt 8: Airborne. With this update, two important features are now added to the game: first off, it exploits the Metal API which means awesome graphics performance on iPhone 6 Plus (and 6) and secondly, gameplay now involves performing stunts and barrel rolls and more.

As with every major update, there are more tracks and exotic locations to race at. Tons of upgrades for speed and more are on offer.

#4. Infinity Blade III

Infinity Blade III for iPhone 6 Plus

Unlike the previous three, Infinity Blade III hasn’t been “optimized” for iPhone 6 Plus (or 6) but the game apparently looks amazing on a large screen. The way the game has been developed, it looks and works great on the iPhone 6 Plus. So much that it almost looks like it has been specifically built for this screen.

#5. Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3 Game for iPhone 6

A bit unlike Asphalt, Real Racing 3 is far more “grounded” in reality. Again, this one’s not optimized per se but it looks like the game you should play on an iPhone 6+. The large screen real estate gets the best out of the game and the fact that the game has been developed with high-performing graphics helps.

Real Racing 3 features a variety of new tracks and cars and customizations to pick from. For the fans, it’s a definite treat.
