Best Free Games for Apple TV

page 5 of 6


Modern Combat 5 is a complicated game and it’s not well suited for the Siri Remote. Although you don’t need a game controller to play this game, it makes life easier. That said, you can get a lot of enjoyment out of MC5 without shelling out money for a controller. With a little practice and finesse, you can easily navigate the terrifying world of Modern Combat 5. After several minutes, I got the hang of the controls. Eventually, the controls become quite intuitive. Players can also enable automated assistance, such as auto-firing and auto-crouching.

If you enjoy games that are like blockbuster action movies, MC5 is great choice. This first person shooter game takes you along an elaborate plot line involving global warfare. It’s not just about violence. Players must solve problems in order to proceed in the game. There are a lot of games like this for consoles and PCs, but this is one of a few for Apple TV.

Modern Combat 5 is very complicated and has a steep learning curve. You can really spend hours on this game without spending a dime. The game uses a vast amount of assets, so expect to wait up to 30 minutes before playing it for the first time. You’ll find that it is well worth the wait.

Dungeon Hunter 5 for Apple TV

Similar to Modern Combat 5, Dungeon Hunter 5 is another high quality GameLoft title. If you’re a fan of Ultima or World of Warcraft, Dungeon Hunter is right up your alley. Although much simpler than most fantasy adventure role-playing games, Dungeon Hunter can provide hours of free entertainment.

Much like MC5, Dungeon Hunter features fairly complicated controls for the Siri Remote. You’ll need to memorize the controls and practice a bit before you get the hang of it. Unlike its GameLoft counterpart, Dungeon Hunter is a third person, top-level view game. The developer isn’t reusing the same game engine on this one. The graphics and buttery smooth animation are amazing. It’s hard to believe this is a free game!

Although more streamlined, Dungeon Hunter is a fully featured role-playing game. You can embark on a solo campaign or play with up to three other players in co-op mode. There are over 900 pieces of armor and weaponry that can be acquired. Hundreds of spells can be cast. All of this is free, with the option to purchase gems for faster progress in the game. Dungeon Hunter even features daily and weekly events, ensuring that you won’t get bored with this game.

As with MC5, Dungeon Hunter uses a lot of extra assets. It may take up to half an hour before you can play the game for the first time. It’s well worth the wait!

Minion Rush for Apple TV

Part of the Despicable Me franchise, Minion Rush for Apple TV brings these adorable characters to a new, interactive level. It’s another GameLoft title. It’s worth mentioning that I have no affiliation with the developer. It just happens that they offer some of the best free games for Apple TV.

Unlike other GameLoft titles, Minion Rush is simple and seems to be designed for children. Its basic controls don’t offer a wide range of operation. On the first level, players guide a Minion through an obstacle course, collecting bananas. Players can move the Minion across three horizontal positions, as it runs automatically. Ducking and jumping are also required to dodge obstacles.

This is a relatively new game and I haven’t been able to spend much time playing it. That said, I like what I see, but it’s not really my kind of game. It’s a great game if you’re a fan of the Despicable Me franchise. The graphics are excellent and, as with all GameLoft titles, it’s a high quality app. next page →
