I doubt the photos are recoverable. The chances would be slim to none after formatting the device, and writing over the media card.

That’s why you should always make and update data backups regularly. Just take care not to make that mistake again next time.
But, right now, it sounds like some of your original phone photos have been overwritten by the games files. But, don’t panic! You may still have chances to get back the undamaged photos back with data recovery software.
There are many similar ones that can help you somehow, such as PhotoRec, Recuva, 4Card Recovery, iCare Data Recovery Free and more.
Just try to find your needed photos back as many as possible.
From now on, remind yourself to make data backups all the time.
