As for the Best Games of 2019, iPhone Game of the Year has been awarded to Sky: Children of the Light by thatgamecompany.
Draw and sketch in this elegant digital notebook app, whose graphite pencils, chisel-tipped markers and more have been meticulously tuned to mimic the real thing. The social network apps were obviously leading the top free iPhone apps list (with YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok leading the list), while some video streaming services took the top spots on the top free iPad apps list. As far as the app of the year for Mac, it was Affinity Publisher (developed by Serif Labs), which is a graphic designing app.
Even Apple TV apps get in on the act, with The Explorers chosen as Apple TV app of the year. Top paid apps include Procreate, Notability, GoodNotes, Duet Display, Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo, and the Toca Life educational apps. The app's community of photographers and videographers are working together to create a visual inventory of the natural world, which you can enjoy on your big screen. Call of Duty Mobile was the 4th most downloaded free game of 2019 on the iPhone. The app allows users to fly across landscapes and interact with celestial beings and find their way back to the heavens.
"We have spent seven years in developing the game, making it interesting to both children and adults, in (the) hope of changing people's ideas on video games", he said. It is an action-packed re-imagining of a classic 16-bit adventure game for the App Store. The most downloaded free game on the iPad meanwhile was Roblox. The GRIS (from Devolver / Nomada Studio) is one such title, and it receives the Best Mac Game title for the year.
Digital art rarely makes it onto the games it was meant for. This $9.99 app revolves around a hopeful young girl lost in her own world and the game is all about her journey.
On December 2, 2019, Apple released some year-end information on the best games to come out for Apple devices in 2019. The game is developed by Lizardcube and published by DotEmu. The game stands out for its hand-drawn animation and a re-orchestrated soundtrack. While the timing of the event was a bit of a surprise - Apple nearly never holds any media events in December - it seemed fairly clear that it was going to be focused not on new products, but rather to honour its "favourite apps and games of 2019". Apps such as Anchor, Canva, Spark Camera, and Wattpad.
This year, the apps that set the trend and made it to the list of App Trend of the year involve the apps that simplified the storytelling experience.
Apple also took a second stab at choosing a games "trend" of the year. So it comes as no surprise that Nintendo would try to move into the mobile games market as much as possible.
