Do you play Fortnite on your iPhone at all?

Do you play Fortnite on your iPhone at all?
It has been a while since the inexplicably popular game Fortnite made itself a bridge and came over to the land of mobile. And boy, was it an arrival. Thanks to its massive success on consoles and PC, Fortnite very easily got the attention of mobile gamers.

Within three months of its launch, it has already made $150 million in revenue, thanks to in-app purchases.

And it's worth noting that, while Fortnite is a "freemium" game, it does not adopt a "pay to win" style. All purchases are for cosmetic items — spending money in the game does not give one a better gun, armor, or any other advantage.

While not as viral or as explosive as Pokemon Go was back in 2016, Fortnite does look like a steady competitor with staying power in the mobile market. Especially once it launches for Android.

But how often do people reach for their smartphone to play Fortnite? It's a pretty tough game even on a controller, with all the quick fort building, aiming, and shooting you need to do (very often at once). Do players do well enough on touch controls to want to keep playing, or is it generally an offputting experience in the long run? We thought we'd ask you:

Fortnite controls sucks on mobile, especially after you factor in the building controls. Even with built-in aimbot on the iphone, you’d still get murdered by noobs on the console/pc.

You can opt out of PC/console. I have plenty #1's on mobile, even though I play primarily on console. Also, this is an Android-fan dominant website, this poll is trash and a clear misrepresentation lmao.

Like most games on mobile, it sucks without a joystick. When it finally makes it to Android, if it has joystick support, the IOS version is gonna suffer a bit.

You know there are joysticks that work with iOS devices, right?

Well, I don't have an iPhone (At least not yet) and I've no idea what Fortnite is. And if that isn't enough; I'm an old man so action video games are not for me. I prefer old school 'point and click' (Tap and tap?) adventure games like Broken Sword Series although I mostly play Angry Birds or Candy Crush. That's what old people do, eh? G'Day!

Why do you feel the need to express in almost every comment that you are a old man and something like "yeehaw, during my childhoold we only played football, that's the real game ain't it? Not that I care but just my 2 cents G'Day!"

Forgive him... Like he mentioned in his comment. "That is what old people do."

Just let him express his thoughts the way he wants to. You don't see anyone else gripe at the way you comment.

Luckily my iPhone 6 can't play that game, I tried it on my PS4 but uninstalled it after a few tries, not a fan of the game.

I have on my iPad Pro, but my brother seems to be playing that too often.

I played few matchers on my PC, but in no hell I am gona even try it on my iPad. The mouse and keyboard combo is there for a reason, for example not playing like a braindead patient and no need for a huge aim assist. Not to mention graphics and sound is as expecxted superior on a PC as well.

Pubg mobile is the real champ.

Right, I actually like PUBG mobile better than I do on Xbox One or PC.

That is actually really, really sad, considering PUBG is heavily inpired by ARMA mods. AKA skill required games. I personally could not care less for mobile ports of FPS games, it's just too ... how would I put it, cassual, noSkill, imprecise, in a case of PUBG even extremely hideous.

Game would be great with good controls. Really surprised no one has made a small controller add on for phones that has caught on. Hardware in phones is great for portable play so only makes sense.

There are many, nobody buys them.
