Imagine yourself with your girlfriend in an isolated jungle keeping each other company. You get bored, have nothing much to talk about and are aghast to find no network connection in and around like 50 miles from where you are stranded.
Don’t fret as Google PLAY has some amazing games in its store which can help you pass the time not only when you are stranded in the jungle but also when you are bored of life at home, office or wherever you work.
Below are descriptions of some of the best games I have come across or heard about from my friends since I have myself taken exile from playing mobile games because it’s way too tiring.
#1: Stick Cricket Super League
Perhaps the longest surviving franchise of games available on Google PLAY store, Stick Cricket Super League is the most entertaining game from Stick Sports Inc. Join a club of your choice from 20+ clubs across the world, customize your avatar by changing appearance as well as modifying playing skills.
Strategize at every Division level with no 20 being the lowest division to start from.
With every match won, you earn fees as well as tokens for hitting sixes. The tokens can be used for earning fees in case of emergency (assuming you lose more matches than you win).
Strategize your team’s strengths and weaknesses by using funds for buying players at the beginning of every season. You also get options thanks to your manager for selecting star players from a selection of 3 options available for every season as a mid-season replacement to suit requirements.
But given the game’s difficulty level you won’t be needing it if you prefer sticking with your main team, improve your own performance and not waste money on more than 2 player purchase per season.
#2: Arcade: Jungle Marble Blast
Zuma’s Revenge might not be available for Android offline gameplay but many of its copycats or knockoffs as you may call them to do. The rules of Jungle Marble Blast are pretty simple:
Remove odd colored balls to match identical ones and earn points. This is possible either by hitting each set with a matching ball or by using superpowers granted by special balls (eg Lightning) which can help you solve puzzles easier and faster before the timer runs out and you lose a life.
Work your way through different difficulty levels of mazes/puzzles to get a chance to fight the ultimate boss at the end of the game after completing all the levels.
The graphics might not be good but no problem as long as the game works perfectly both offline as well as online.
#3: Chess Free by Ai Factory Ltd
Chess is perhaps the only game which is entertaining minus the violence and aggression one gets to see in racing games or in fighting games like PUBG. This app by AI Factory Ltd. Is definitely the best for learners inspired by Microsoft’s ‘Chess Titans’ made for Windows 7.
One can suitably customize his/her choice of level, the color of the pieces (Black or White) which he wants to play with as well as Undo his/her moves in case he wants to change.
After the game ends, one can use the ‘Review Game’ option to understand his performance and be prepared for future games. No wonder it’s the Editor’s Choice app in this category as its graphics are good and well-performing.
A good alternative option for people who are missing Chess Titans after having switched to Windows 10.
#4: Temple Run
The most popular game after ‘Angry Birds’ to hit the mobile revolution. The game is created by Raleigh, North Carolina based Imangi Studios run by Husband-wife duo of Natalia Luckyanova and Keith Shepherd. The success of its 2011 version created a Franchise which earned them amazing revenues.
The game involves running endlessly while trying to avoid losing way by falling off cliffs or streets. Points are earned while collecting tokens which come in the way. Beware as there will be demon monkeys in the way who might prove a hindrance to you while you are on the move by taking away the relic you carry since the start of the game. The game ranked #13 in Pocket Gamer’s 2013 rankings and continues to do well in the digital market.
#5: Darts King
When one is in tension or stressed or angry, he/she always looks for a place to vent his/her frustration.
