Thanks to the rise of the smartphone and mobile internet, we spend much of the day on our phones. We email, app and update our Social Media. We take care of our banking business. Useful but also a lot of fun. If you have nothing to do, you can grab a phone and entertain yourself with all kinds of things.
Especially games have become increasingly popular in recent years. We’re not talking about casino games like blackjack or video slots, but “normal” games. The game developers have ensured that you can play on your mobile phone without losing any functions. With the advent of the smartphone, many new games have been created especially for the cell phone.
What is the offer?
The range of games has become very large. You can choose between paid and free games. You can easily download and play them directly on your smartphone. We review four of the most fun and popular game apps available for free for both Android and iOS.
Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga is the absolute best among the free games. The creators of this game took inspiration from the famous game Bejeweled. Because of this, this game evokes a lot of nostalgic feelings for certain people. The game consists of a board with various icons on it. In Bejeweled, these icons were diamonds. In Candy Crush, however, they are candies.
The goal is to get four of the same “candies” in a row. You do this by swapping two icons each time. If you have four icons in a row you receive a number of points and the row of icons falls away from the screen. The game was released in 2013 and started as a facebook game. Soon the game was so popular that it was also released as an app that you can download on your smartphone. The app is free and available for Android and iOS.
Angry Birds Free
Angry Birds will evoke some recognition with most people. The game has been around for a while but has been expanded over the years with additional games on the same theme. In the game you shoot birds at a bunch of pigs that are positioned on a kind of structure.
Each turn you can shoot a number of birds. If you have hit all the pigs you can collapse the structure and you have achieved the goal. The nice thing about this game is that new versions are constantly being released. For example, there is a version where certain birds have extra powers. This changes the game considerably. In short, Angry Birds will not get bored quickly. You can download the app for Android and iOS for free.
Real Racing 3
Racing games have been around for decades and are incredibly popular. You can also race with your smartphone nowadays. With Real Racing 3 you race like your life depends on it. No need to accelerate, all you have to do is navigate. You do this by tilting your smartphone and touching the screen. So the fun part of this game is that it uses the features of your phone and thus distinguishes itself from a racing game that you play on your computer.
The fourth game that should not be missing in this list is Subway Surfers. In this game you spray graffiti and are caught by a guard. The guard will chase you, together with his dog. The goal of the game is to stay ahead of the guard. The route is along a track that consists of three pairs of rails.
Along the way you must switch rails in time when a train arrives. Also, while walking on the rails you need to grab coins which give you certain advantages allowing you to move faster. Subway Surfers is fun for anyone with nerves of steel. You can download the game for free for iOS and Android.
