Some of the games included here are my favorites on the platform, and I’ve compiled a list of the best games for iPad to play with a keyboard and mouse.

They appear multiple times in this capacity considering what games they bring to mobile platforms.

Foreigners: Isolation is arguably one of the biggest AAA games to hit iOS in recent years, and it has the best conversion we’ve seen for a major console game like this.

This XCOM 2 Collection is a steal at its asking price and supports full keyboard and mouse gameplay if you’re not a fan of touch controls. I hope we continue to get conversions of this quality on iOS from Feral Interactive for years to come. Just make sure you have a supported device because XCOM 2 Collection is more demanding than usual.

Company of Heroes$13.99 The last Feral Interactive release to make the list is one of my favorite iPad games of all time.

The premium soulslike has seen a lot of post-launch support through free and paid content, and it’s one of those games that you must play if you’re looking for something to play with a keyboard and mouse on iPadOS.


terrariums is another one of those huge games available on every platform. It plays very well with touch controls but shines with a controller on the iPhone. On the iPad, it’s best played with a controller or keyboard and mouse. If you haven’t played terrariums However, the iOS version is also much cheaper than on consoles. It’s also updated more frequently than it was a few years ago when it lagged behind other versions.


Minecraft is similar to terrariums as it is a game available on all consoles and pc but Minecraft is actually much better on iOS than on consoles. A recent update brought full keyboard and mouse support, making it the most versatile version of the game. while I like to play Minecraft With a controller on the iPhone, there’s no denying how much better it is with a keyboard and mouse. All possible input methods and the most stable portable version of the game are available to you on the iPad.
