In this fast-paced world of technology, it is just impossible to get bored and sit idle if you have a smart device along with a good internet connection at your disposal. The Google Play Store has a plethora of gaming apps to offer, which exhibit a wide variety that can suit any of your gaming moods or preferences. But while being spoilt for choice is good, it often causes confusion. Specifically, if you spend quite some time browsing through the Android store and download games that don’t appeal to you much.
Sadly, we have all gone through the hassle of excitedly downloading an app only to uninstall it in a matter of a few seconds as there are many substandard apps amongst the best-performing ones. Thus, to make your experience a smooth one, here is a list of six gaming apps which will ensure that you enjoy your time while you are at them:
Monument Valley 2
Monument Valley 2 is a puzzle game that is a sequel to the2014 award-winning game Monument Valley. The gaming app for the Android smart device came out this November 2017 and is akin to a standalone game.
So, if you have not played the first part of this game, you can still download and play it, which is reasonably priced at $4.99.
Monument Valley 2 involves moving tricky bits of architecture around to carve out a way for the protagonist, Ro.
The architecture is sketched from the drawings of M.C Escher, which adds a plus to the game’s designing layout. Combine this with a great soundtrack and some emotions and you get a good puzzle game.
Galaxy of Pen & Paper
There’s no denying that we all enjoy digital versions of tabletop games. Galaxy of Pen & Paper falls into this category.
Released in July 2017, the game is an RPG parody from Behold Studios. The action-packed game seeks inspiration from science fiction books and movies with the setting drawn in outer space.
The app requires you to pay $4.99 once for no advertisements and in-app purchases to spoil the game in between. The interesting game lets you explore space, steer spaceships, and battle across the galaxy on your smart device.
You can also select your characters, skills per player, and a lot more. This offers lots of flexibility in choice. You get to hunt space pirates too. So, if a sci-fi and storytelling game is your cup of tea, you will love using this android app.
South Park: Phone Destroyer
South Park: Phone Destroyer is, of course, a misnomer, so no need to back off upon reading the name of this app. It is, in fact, a must-have app on your phone as it is great for some mindless fun.
The game does not require you to set out some separate time for it because you can play it on the go or while waiting in line at the grocery store.
It is a free gaming app with some in-app purchases. The combats are not tough so you won’t have to spend unnecessary dollars to unlock new levels. Basically, this is a fun action game where you get character cards of the South Park characters.
Some of these include Astronaut Butters, Sheriff Cartman, and Posieden Stan. The characters play numerous roles and you will have to focus on beating the opposite team in a fighting level. Overall, it is an entertaining app to have on your smartphone.
Iron Marines is a gaming app that comes in the genre of real-time strategy games. Released in September 2017, the app is marked at a premium price of $4.99.
Small in-app purchases are also present in it. In the case of additional charges, for instance, third-parties sending spam, you can always contact the support team. It provides you with a central hero and a choice between individual units and full group selection.
Primarily, this RTS game is based on missions. Their central aim is to fight the alien invasion. To this end, you will have different objectives. You will be facing the aliens head-on, saving teammates or protecting the bases.
You will also be handed an achievement checklist to earn gold by fulfilling milestones. Moreover, each level offers a different variety that adds to the fun. Throw in the mix a great design, intuitive user interface, and detailed characters and you have a great game.
Besides being a good brain workout, which shifts a couple of your mental gears, word games can be fun. Released in 2017, Sidewords is a tricky word game.
It is available for download at $2.99 and provides a good opportunity to stimulate your brain. Fundamentally, this gaming app is a hybrid of a logic puzzle and a word game. Initially, it will take you some time to understand the game but once you get the hang of it, it will exercise your brain muscles well.
You will get blank grids with the side borders holding words. From each side, you will have to use minimum one letter to make a new word. Each word must consist of three or more letters.
Each letter that is used then forms a new line. Your main objective will be filling the grid, which gets tougher as the grid’s size grows. If the challenge gets monotonous, you can always chill with a side mini-game of Quads.
The Pink Panther theme song has always been the guru anthem that plays when you try to do something stealthily. Well, you can always continue playing it in your mind, as you play Card Thief, a unique card game. Priced similarly to Sidewords, it is, basically, a cross between a stealth game and a card game.
The gist of the game is pretty simple. As a player, you will be trapped in a dungeon that is made of a set of cards. You will have to escape from the place in a cunning manner; tip-toeing your way through the guards, and traps. You will also have to steal treasure to be able to unlock more levels and purchase gear. The app offers a dynamic card game, which is also quite exciting.
