Gunplay and survival

The chaotic battles rage on from your iPhone screen. The time has come to gather weapons and resources, and fight off enemies.

A world of action

Fight your way to first place by being the last one to survive.

The world of Erangel now fits inside your phone. You can fly over the island and raid abandoned buildings. You'll have to use weapons you find to kill off opponents who try to do the same. All the original features of PUBG shine in this adaptation.

Using the on-screen buttons, you can navigate through the map. Look through your backpack for weapons and save items in your inventory as you go along. The camera angles can be adjusted by swiping across the screen. PUBG successfully recreates its features to fit the tiny screen of an iPhone.

Some tasks are automated to make them easier. It is difficult to recreate the same controls and features on a touchscreen but developers have managed to do a decent job with PUBG. You can now hover over a weapon to add it to your inventory instead of going through some painful touchscreen processes.

You'll be sure to experience a seamless game without any crashes. The framerate is stable and can handle the intense graphics quite well. On the Xbox and desktop versions, it tended to crash or freeze.

Despite this, the mobile version simply can’t live up to its big-screen counterparts. The controls can be awkward and don’t always work well. For example, dragging your thumb across the screen to zoom might result in pressing the button to shoot. Not only will this waste bullets, but it will alert enemies to your whereabouts.

Where can you run this program?

This program runs on iOS 6 and above. It is also available for Android and Windows.

Is there a better alternative?

No. If you want a similar title with cross-platform matches, try Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile.

Our take

PUBG for iPhone offers some intense action and good times to be had. There are still some improvements to be made, but it is more than enough for now.
