10 Unreal Engine powered-games for Android and iOS - graphics feasts to enjoy on the go!

10 Unreal Engine powered-games for Android and iOS - graphics feasts to enjoy on the go!
There's nothing like an Unreal Engine-powered game to push those fast mobile chipsets into full gear and fill your eyes with dazzling visuals. We looked around and collected ten of the very best Unreal-powered games on Android & iOS. Most of them have quality gameplay to boast with in addition to the almost console quality graphics they output. It's quite amazing to see stuff like Horn and Real Boxing running on a smartphone, but then again, it's only logical for mobile technology to catch up to almost decade-old gaming hardware. 

Thanks to that, mobile games are better than they've ever been - even though too many of them are ill thought-out schemes for emptying our wallets in exchange for one too many in-app purchases. These fine games here don't suffer from publisher greed, though. They are quality time!

I really don't get how for example Gameloft can charge 7 bucks for a game and still feature in-app purchases. Talking about a ripoff.

+1 And they never optimize their games properly.

All games on Android aren't optimized properly.

You honestly think they are for iPhone?

Not true. There are many games that have complex graphics and run at good frame rate, but do not heat up the phone and drain the battery. But gameloft do not care for optimization.

Back in my day we paid 19-40 bucks for a game that lasted 3 months. Now a days mobile games can last for a full year...boohoo?

Never seen a mobile game that lasted me a full year. And I don't mind paying for games (all my pc games are bought), but not when the competition is a lot cheaper and I don't get enough in return.

It is ok to pay $20 pr &$30 for console games. You expect a great worth of your buck. Mobile gaming is a different story. Pay $5 and you will still be bombarded by IAPs and obtrusive ads.

And The Dark Knight Rises is on Windows Phone as well.

No surprise really. The unreal engine 3 supports windows RT which is arm based, so a company could do it 'technically' though would need work. After all Nova 3 is on wp. Engine 4 is coming to wp, though probably after the win10 release as a result of combined coding. No big imo.

Nothing on this list that would beat PSOne or PSP emulator and their catalogs of games. And the difference in game quality between those and anything mobile is astronomical.

The Dark Knight Rises is also on Windows Phone.

I absolutely love NOVA 3 and TDKR. Incredibly nailed atmosphere and soundtrack. Laugh all you want, but NOVA 3 is still the best game I ever played. If those levels are "linear", well I don't know what are HALO levels then. They're utterly sterile in comparison!

Never really got time for these big games on a mobile platform :/

Injustice Gods Among Us has some pretty sweet graphics. Tons of replay value. If you're on Android though be prepared to be screwed over by the blatant and obvious iOS bias.

well not all Unreal Engine games are good. Some other games are also cool
