Sometimes, being stuck in some line or waiting for a bus/flight can be tedious, and you just want something to occupy you. Since, nowadays, there are many multiplayer games, all of them require an internet connection. That’s why you will be pleased to hear there are still some games you can play offline, whether you have an iPhone or an iPad.
I decided to make a brief list for you and show you the best iOS offline games in 2021.

Best Offline Games for iPhone and iPad

Now, it all depends on the kind of gamer you are. Whether you like shooters, actions, puzzles. There’s a whole bunch of games out there, but I selected only the best. Of course, the choice is subjective, so I would like to hear you out as well. For now, let’s see what I have.

Wayward Souls

A roguelike game with infinite options for exploring should be a perfect choice if you’re waiting in the queue. There are multiple classes, and each of them has its own storyline, so even though the game is full of options, you won’t be bored. Each of these classes is fast, and things are switching at a reasonable speed. Therefore, you won’t be bored even though you can sit and play for hours.
The game costs $7.99 on Apple Store.

Siralim 2

If you’re not a fan of roguelikes, here is one awesome offline RPG for you. It’s an old-school game that kind of reminded me of Super Mario and its design. You can summon many demons to fight with you on your way through dungeons. There is an infinite number of levels, meaning you can play forever. Or at least until you have something better to do. There are over 600 pre-made demons, plus you can use eggs to make your own, so again, you are covered for quite a good number of hours. Or maybe days?

Thanks to fast-paced acrobatics and smooth moves, the game is classified as one of the best offline runners in general. And it puts you in the right mood also. As I said, try it out, you won’t regret it!

If you’re into puzzle games, here is something for you as well. Limbo is a combination of a puzzle and adventure game set in a dark universe. You need to play as a young boy who’s saving his sister from the Limbo.

Besides dealing with a concept, you will have to battle spiders, unexpected obstacles, and many monsters on this road of salvation.
To download the game, you will need to pay as little as $3.99.
