The gaming world has come on leaps and bounds, with notable innovation made in the space in recent times. One area where gaming has clearly progressed is with our mobile phones.
Thanks to the technological advancements made in our miniature handheld devices, game developers are able to bring us more sophisticated creations than ever before.
Gone are the days of playing Snake on heavy old Nokia devices, now we’re able to access a wide variety of creations and play them on several different devices.
From hugely popular mainstream games like PUBG Mobile and Angry Birds to casino creations from sites offering video poker for English players or games like roulette, to popular puzzle games for adults, the amount of mobile games we now have access to is amazing. As a result, numerous communities have been formed off the back of successful releases, such as with popular games like Pokemon Go.
When it comes to iPhone games, new creations are released on a regular basis. It can be hard to keep track of the best games to play, though, so here’s a look at some of the releases worth downloading at the moment.
A game that is essentially Russian roulette but with exploding cats, Exploding Kittens has caused quite a stir already since its release.
A game not to be taken too seriously, players take it in turns to select a card, and if they get an exploding kitten, they must defuse it in time, or it’ll be game over for them. The game requires a strategic approach, as well as the option of some multiplayer mayhem.
If you’re looking for a unique creation to play with, then give Exploding Kittens a try.
