Just got an iPhone 6 what to get?

I just got an iPhone 6 yesterday and I'm looking for a game that really puts the machine to the test that has beautiful graphics and a fun gametime. Can someone help me with this who has an iPhone 6. I'm up for most games.

Also what can the iPhone do better than it's predecessors other than the obvious?

I did notice that alot of the games I beta tested on Testflight I can no longer download though which is sad...

Thanks in advance,

How come you got the latest phone if you aren't sure what the best games are for it ? Not trying to argue but I'm surprised when people get the latest devices and then aren't sure what to get for it to show it off !

Apple isn't exactly helping this... most of the games in their "iPhone 6" list aren't even full-resolution on the 6.

As much as it pains me to say it, Gameloft's latest games are pretty good on the iPhone 6. Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 5 use Metal to push the iPhone 6 pretty hard, and look great doing it.

I get the latest phone when the market starts making games that require more than what I previously had. For example I went from a 3 to a 4s when new games were coming out that only ran on 4 or better. Now I went to the 6 because the newer games are coming out that require a 5 or above so I typically skip a generation. Either way thanks for your comment and sorry I'm not as technically sound as you seem to be.

Mr. Crab by Illusion Labs was updated with Metal a while back...

I don't have a 6, but running Mr. Crab with Metal on my 5S didn't strike me as a great showcase of the technology's potential.

Well... when there's not that many apps & games that DO take advantage of graphical updates via METAL, games like Mr. Crab do get showcased. I found the graphical jump to be pretty impressive, considering the graphics weren't 'all that' to begin with. But that is just my opinion. So... =o/

Asphalt 8: airborne is a very fun game.

Also consider getting infinity blade iii if you are interested (if optizimed on that device), one of the best looking games for iOS.

I had Asphalt with my iPhone 4s and played it alot when it first came out. I'm guessing an Asphalt 9 should be coming out sooner than later

I also had played all the way through IB3 with my old phone.

THank you guys for the suggestions.

To impress? Get some Gameloft games. To have fun find REAL PC games that were ported to mobile. Machinarium, anodyne, bard tales. Stuff like that.
