By Betty

Strategy games are fun and exhilarating at the same time. But, with the kind of demand mobile games have generated over time, it isn’t surprising that people are now more inclined towards playing iOS mobile games as opposed to the standard games that are available on PC.

If you have an iOS device and have been exploring the best strategy games, we have a list of all the top options worth exploring.

10 Best iOS Strategy Games 2023

1.      Five Nights at Freddy’s

Ever since its release, Five Nights at Freddy’s has managed to garner the attention of a mass of people. The game has released seven main titles, alongside a series of spin-offs, all of which are pretty popular, to begin with.

That said, this horror strategy game isn’t for every iOS gamer. Your objective in this game is to work as a nighttime security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Throughout the game, you work through a lot of animatronic ups and downs.

2.      Raiders of the North Sea

We are all familiar with the Raiders of the North Sea board game. If you are quite aligned with this board game and want to play it in the virtual world, this is a strategy game you won’t regret indulging in. You play as a Viking raider in this world, where you traipse through the communities to gather lost treasures.

The more resources you collect through the game, the better your chances of securing the big win. Also, more resources ensure that you get to impress the Chieftain of the clan, which should be your end goal in the game.

3.      Infinite Magicraid

Next up on the list is Infinite Magicraid, in which your work is to defeat the antagonist in the game, Lihem. The game draws its primary inspiration from the game RAID: Shadow Legends. If you have played this game before, you’d find it pretty accommodating.

The 3D graphics in the game are pretty astounding, especially if you are playing the game in the latest iPhone model. Also, the storyline of the game is pretty engaging as well, further contributing to the fun and immersiveness.

4.      SteamWorld Heist

When it comes to strategy games, nothing beats heist-based games. They are fun, engaging and not to mention, pretty amazing too. This is particularly a pirate-adventure strategy game, which you will find pretty engaging from the get-go.

Your stance in the game is to play as a pirate captain, where you have to work through several encounters involving loots with the rival. Your work is to sustain your crew and ensure that you don’t lose the encounters that you get yourself into.

5.      DomiNations

If there’s one popular strategy game for iOS, DomiNations has to be on the list of the top 3. If you are an avid gamer, you will find the game drawing inspiration from a few other strategy games. But, overall, the plot and the progress of the game are pretty enticing. You do have to work through the progress of human civilization, which can be a little challenging to work through.

The graphics in this game are nothing short of immaculate. Also, you do have to indulge in a few microtransactions in the game and make a few in-game purchases to sustain yourself from the start till the end. The game isn’t fast-paced, which irks certain players.

6.      Endless Road: Reborn

Next up on the list of top iOS games is Endless Road: Reborn. This game will test your survival skills and make you go head-first into some of the most exhilarating challenges. The game is integrated with eight different characters that you can choose from.

Overall, the game has tabletop gameplay and is a role-playing game, which you will find quite fun and exciting to engage in. Each of the maps in the game has randomly generated content on it, so the gaming experience is unique for every player.

7.      Civilization VI

Let us preface this by saying that these games aren’t for everyone. Explaining and breaking down the gameplay and the objective of this game is quite difficult, especially if you are someone who doesn’t have experience playing strategy games. If we had to explain it simply, your work is to build a civilization around you.

Your work throughout the game would be to work in different perspectives and also earn resources to build the civilization. It isn’t for the faint of heart and it will take quite some time for you to go through with the game, so keep that into consideration. The city improvements are quite fun to play with.

8.      The Elder Scrolls: Legends

Another popular iOS strategy game that deserves a mention in the list is The Elder Scrolls: Legends. The game is already popular on video game consoles. The gameplay style of this iOS game is pretty much the same as you’d get in the console. You get access to two lanes for battling out the enemies instead of one, which is quite a fun experience too.

If you aren’t someone willing to spend a lot of money on a game, we’d recommend going for this one since it involves the least amount of microtransactions. When you make in-game purchases, you also get access to good rewards in the game.

9.      Into the Breach

If you have a Netflix subscription, Into the Breach is a game that’s exclusively available for your perusal. Your objective in the game is to lead a team of fighters who are battling an external alien threat. The game involves turn-based combat, so you have to be quick on your controls if you want to win.

Besides that, don’t get confused with the game’s short length, every step of the way is brutal and quite convoluted. You have to work through a lot, and you will have a pretty hard time overcoming the addictive experience of the game.

10. Clash of Clans

While most of the above-mentioned games are new and underrated, Clash of Clans is one of the best iOS strategy games that everyone has played at least once or is aware of. This fremium strategy game enables you to play as the chief of a fantasy village and your work is to expand and prosper the area.

You have to build your village from scratch and build an army to protect your place from the attacks of outsiders. As you keep building the village, you can form stronger allies and clans to improve your chances of a big win.


That concludes the list of the top iOS strategy games that you can explore on your own. If you are confused about where to get started, we’d recommend that you start with a strategy game that seems familiar. From there, you can make your way up and try out the unconventional and more challenging games that are currently available online.
