Apple has announced the annual Best of 2016 charts for the App Store, iTunes Store, and iBooks Store. While “Prisma”, the photo editing app, has been declared as the iPhone app of the year, “Clash Royale” has won the race as the iPhone game of the year.

Clash Royale was released in March 2016. It's a card-based game in which players have to collect a lot of cards from the Clash of Clans universe and compete with other players. The game is pretty exciting to play.
