Gaming apps have been around for many years. They date back to the days of playing Snake on your old Nokia mobile phone. But in terms of gaming, what is the most famous app?
These days, you may play video games on a home console, a gaming PC, over the internet, or on your smartphone or tablet, but now that summer is approaching, we need to be prepared for endless gaming fun in the sun. Check out the list below if you’re looking for the most addictive games for your iPhone or Android phone. Good luck with the rest of your tasks! Let’s delve straight in.
Angry Birds 2
It’s easy to see why Angry Birds 2 was one of the most popular games on the App Store. The game’s combination of physical gameplay, well-crafted puzzles and endearing characters, manages to entertain and irritate in equal measure. That’s excellent news for a puzzle game. What started as a simple puzzle game developed into a marketing powerhouse, spawning a slew of sequels and spin-offs?
Despite how much fun some of them were (we’re looking at you, Angry Birds Transformers), none of them managed to live up to the high bar set by the initial two editions. Start here if you’ve never played an Angry Birds game before.
Clash of Clans
Clash of Clans, the mobile game that drove Supercell to its current position of supremacy — and produced a slew of spin-off games — is deserving of a spot on this list. It’s the most significant and most fantastic idle town builder game on mobile devices, and it’s a lot of fun to play. You can fight competing towns, form alliances and engage in Clan Wars, or try to get on with your life while mayhem explodes around you. It’s an incredibly entertaining game; just be wary of the microtransactions.
Like so many video games, Desert Golf begins as an escape from the mundane aspects of life. When you pull back the initial swing and release it, you can be sitting on the subway or the toilet. You complete one hole. You complete nine holes. You complete 18 holes.
However, the golfing proceeds to 50 holes, 100 holes and ultimately 300 holes, and the experience gradually alters. A cactus appears at one point. The game enables GameCenter connections at a later time. Sometimes the courses are particularly mountainous, and other times they are remarkably flat. The game continues unabated.
Almost every board game you might have enjoyed as a kid has been translated into a smartphone app, but not all of them work as well as others. (I see you cheats using anagram solvers to play Scrabble!) Battleship, on the other hand, is a perfect match. You won’t be able to see my pieces, and I won’t be able to see yours, so let’s see who sinks first. It’s a classic setup that’s been updated with the latest mobile gaming features.
Crossy Road, inspired by the arcade game Frogger, managed to pay respect to a classic while setting a new benchmark for free-to-play gaming. Its one-touch simplicity makes it ideal for on-the-go gaming. The basic principles ensure that everyone understands what to do from the first tap.
Simply cross the road without dying in the process. You can thank Crossy Road for that if you’ve ever played a game where you spend earned currency to unlock a random creature and add it to your collection, then watch a video ad to make even more cash while smiling.
Super Mario Run
Is there anyone who doesn’t like Mario? One of video games’ biggest heroes is now available on your smartphone in a few games. Still, Super Mario Run is the purest and most loyal to the original concept. It will bring back memories of your first time playing as the Italian plumber. It’s essentially an endless runner, so if you’ve ever played Temple Run, you’ll know what to expect.
All you have to do is control when Mario jumps as he runs towards the right side of the screen. Break bricks, smush Goombas and acquire additional characters to play as.
Super Stickman Golf
A group of video game journalists gathers in California a few weeks before E3 each year to see a few dozen new games. The advance screening gives the press some extra time to write previews before the industry’s busiest week, as well as to start the vetting process for the annual E3 Awards.
Super Stickman Golf was the most popular game of the week for three years, and it was played nonstop on tour buses and in hotel lobbies. The golfer knocks a ball across a two-dimensional stage in single-player mode, attempting to land it in a hole with as few strokes as possible.
However, multiplayer turns the game into a race. Strokes are no longer critical. What matters is that you be the first to finish.
