Recently upgraded from iPhone 4 to 5C, what are some games I can actually play now?

Hey guys, I'm very excited to be upgrading to a 5C from my old iPhone 4, and now am looking for some awesome games I can play (that I couldn't before).

I'm a fan of RPGs, arcade and beautiful games in general. I won't be shy of spending my $25 gift card on premium games that are worth it!

So I'd really appreciate your suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Well you should definitely check out the Infinity Blade series. They may be a little old by now, but they're graphically among the best games on iOS.

GTA: San Andreas is a classic, and it runs excellent on the 5C.

Oceanhorn is a classic Zelda-esque RPG, and one of the best RPGs available on iOS.

Lili is another beautiful Unreal-engine game, though be forewarned that the developers added pop-up ads to their paid app after a bunch of people already bought it - very sleazy.

The Final Fantasy games are expensive, and aren't particularly graphically intense, but they're some of the best RPGs on iOS.

Iphone 5s and the upcoming iPhone 6 are the best choice for gamers! I have an iPhone 5s and some games like god of fire and infinity blade 3 have micro lag!

Unfortunately , the 5s and probably the 6 will be too expensive for where I live. The 5c was the only half-affordable option for me..

I disagree,For that price you can get a good enough quad core phone+ Vita+3ds.5s is a crap device incapable of handling even old ps2 ports.I wouldn't suggest anyone buying one that would be throwing your money in a gutter, like I did.

Cdbaksu,You did well brother but even a 5c won't last another year,If my 5s is struggling right now imagine what will happen in a year's time.Atleast you didn't commit the same mistake as I did.
