Default Best games not playable on a 3GS?

Yes, a self serving thread since I picked up a 4S. What's ironic is that if I go back through the GoTW threads and even the thread about games people always keep on their device and I realize how few truly great games I couldn't play on my 3GS (of course, going forward, they'll be many more I'm sure.)

I already had (picked up during sales):
Arc Squadron
Wraithborne
Mauv
Fibble HD

Things I've picked up yesterday:
The Gods: Uprising
Spiral
Gloomy Hollow

Things I plan to get soon:
Little Inferno
Ronin
Penumbear


I also really want TWENY but need to wait with the high price tag and the money I spent on the phone.

I know Bastion is a favorite around here but I have the 360 version.

What other graphically intensive games may I be forgetting that were iPhone 4 and up? Not seeing a lot of game of the weeks, etc,, that I couldn't play.

Modern Combat 4 is great for multiplayer.

Good suggestion! Have it on my Android tablet, but my son got it on his iPod Touch 4G so might download it on iOS as well.

Thanks! I've been wanting to upgrade forever (and took my son's upgrade ). I'm still amazed at how much longer the 3GS held up as a gaming device as far as compatibility. I think I only had my iPod Touch 2G for six months before it started to become obsolete.

Aye, me as well. I don't know what isn't playable on the 3GS nowadays, but it seems like the 3GS is still compatible with almost everything that I care about. Doesn't matter now that I also have a 4S, but it does seem like the 3GS was quite the trooper in terms of compatibility. Feels like the other updated versions are getting dropped way faster.

I have been keeping a list of games that don't support the 3Gs, so I can get them when I upgrade to a newer phone... Give me a second to find the list.

I was kinda disappointed with Return to Castlerama, but that is a solid list.

Im not sure if these are 4th gen & up-only, but if you didnt have the chance to play them due to device incompatibilities, you might give these titles a try as they are highly, highly, highly recommended from me. Yeah... 3 highlies (omg i made a word ).

EPOCH.
Chaos Rings (all of them)
Anomaly (Korea and Warzone Earth)
The Walking Dead
Mass Effect Infiltrator
Spiral Ep1 (oh i see you already got it, but it's still worth mentioning )
Temple Run Oz
Indiana Stone
Blood Roofs
Into the Dead
Unmechanical
Demons Score
Danmaku Unlimited 2
Liberation Maiden
