Action / Shooter – PUBG – Player Unknown Battle Ground (FREE)

Strategy – Plague Inc. (($0.99/£0.99/AU$1.99)

And once you get used to it, you have expansions you can buy to make the game even more entertaining. Tom’s Guide offers also a good selection of other potential strategy games for iOS.
Card Game – The Elder Scrolls: Legends (FREE)
There’s the main one, Hearthstone that is quite a popular one, but if you’ve never been too much into the World of Warcraft and preferred more the Elder Scroll franchise, you are in for a treat!

It was refreshing to have something new since Hearthstone has been around for a while.
