Apple has released their 2019 retrospective, crowning not only their favourite games of this year, but also the most download games across Free and Paid. Sky: Children of the Light has been crowned the best iPhone Game of 2019, whereas Hyper Light Drifter is the best game on iPad. Sayonara Wild Hearts has also been declared as the best game of Apple Arcade so far.

As far as the most downloaded ‘free’ and ‘paid’ lists go, it’s a mixture of usual suspects and some interesting surprises. Here are the full lists:

It’s definitely interesting to see what's been popular, especially in the paid list. A lot of cool games in there that we’ve reviewed, and it’s good to see them getting the recognition they deserve especially when premium games seem to be in a bit of a weird spot right now.

We’ll be reflecting ourselves soon on 2019 in mobile gaming, but in the meantime, what do you think? What have been your favourite iOS (or Android, if you want) games of the year?
