With the rise of the smartphones and tablets, mobile games have evolved far past Snake and Tetris. Game developers continue to launch new games for iOS and Android platforms and at present, around 200 games launched everyday for the mobile devices. Countless of minutes have been lost with them and there is no escape from their ability to addict us. Let me introduce three top mobile games now.
Sticky Blocks: This is an Android block sliding game, where the objective is guiding a white block to a corner red square. This game is more challenging as it has blocks of different sizes and colors and a few blocks are really sticky and join together. However, Sticky Blocks allows users to move the blocks in any direction. This app has five levels - Novice, Easy, Medium, Hard and Difficult and there is also a Bonus level available. It offers medals at the end of each puzzle, but the developers have made it really hard to get the gold medal. Sticky Blocks Free needs Android 2.0 or up. There is also a paid version available with 600 levels.
Critter Rollers: This is also an Android game where the players need to guide the critter to a donut. After launching this app for the first time, users need to sign in or register to enter into the gaming area. They can also play as a guest. The cannons would launch the critter, while spikes and lava could spoil the progress. They can guide this creature just by tapping on the screen. No accelerometer controls means no need to tilt the device. Therefore, backward movements are not possible in Critter Rollers. Developers have included two new levels as Easter Eggs and there would be no donuts there. Critter Rollers is available for free and it requires Android 1.6 and up. There is also a Gold Edition available for USD 1.29.
Spy Fox in Dry Cereal: This is an animation puzzle for the iPhones. In this game, users have to play the part of a spy and guide a fox to stop the dairy destruction planned by William the Kid. This treacherous villain William looks to replace the cow milk with his goat milk. The hero is equipped with some slick gadgets like laser toothbrush and suction cuff links and has the support of friends like Monkey Penny and Quack who could provide handy clues to stop this disaster. This game costs USD 4.99. I think the developers should think about the price to increase the reach of the app. Spy Fox in Dry Cereal is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 3.0 or later.
As I told, games apps are launched everyday and they are ruling the App Store and Google Play. These games are really fun, so look for the type of games that you like to play. This list may help you get some good games.
