If you have an Apple phone you can now play games on your safari browser or on your mobile device and you do not have to download them. This has been made possible by Facebook just this past Friday. So you no longer have to physically download any game before you can enjoy playing it on your device.

Apple’s cloud gaming policy creates “roadblocks” that prevent people from “discovering new games, playing cross-device, and accessing high-quality games instantly in native iOS apps.” Yes, they have decided to bypass Apple’s cloud gaming policy.
