With beautiful endless mountain scenery, amazing day-to-night transitions and a mesmerizing soundtrack (you should definitely wear headphones), this is a must have on any device.
If there is any game you download from this list, Alto’s Odyssey is extremely easy to recommend.
Just like the original, you’ll parachute in, loot buildings to gear up, and do your best to survive all the way to the end. You can go it solo, or create a squad of up to four players if you want to try out a team effort. Be careful though, this game is incredibly addicting.
The game is based on World of Warcraft, and each of the nine classes has a deck based on its WoW equivalent, which allows for a variety of play styles. There are also meaty options for both single-player and competitive multiplayer, and it’s perfect whether you want a quick play or something more in-depth. In short, it’s extremely versatile and you can play it however you like. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect digital CCG experience.
The latest expansion, The Witchwood is coming on April 9.
You have a variety of tools at your disposal to mutate your virus: the ability to add symptoms, including fatal ones; methods of communicability, including animal-borne, airborne and body fluids; and resistances. Each of these can be built up in trees that interconnect, making your virus strong. And, as your virus spreads, you gain DNA points that you can spend on more abilities. It’s tremendously exciting, especially when your virus grows strong enough to mutate on its own, as you race against the development of a cure.
Destroying all humans has never been so much fun.
Before you download Pumped BMX 3 (link below), it’s important to note that in Pumped BMX 1 and 2, the tracks are a bit more forgiving, so if you want to ease into these games, maybe try one of the earlier ones first. They’re all good.
If you can get past the price, though, Dandara has a giant world to explore with cool-looking graphics, tons of mystical creatures and an excellent soundtrack as you try to save the world of Salt. Platformer gaming fans should definitely pick this one up or watch for price drops in the future, because it’s a great game to have on your phone.
The game has missions such as “gather four coins three times in a row” or “drive 400m three times,” which give you a coin payout once you complete them. Then you use your coins to unlock more car styles. It’s a really simple game, but one that I keep coming back to for its relaxing qualities.
All three games in the series hit that brilliant, elusive spot between mentally challenging and satisfying. And they’re gorgeously tactile, beautifully designed down to the finest detail. I recommend full immersion: a dark room, a pair of headphones and no other distractions.
So much care has been put into every single aspect of the game to make it a wonderful experience for players, and you’d be very hard-pressed not to fall head over heels in love with it. If you do, you’ll probably also want to check out Monument Valley 2 (iOS | Android).
What’s really cool about this game in single player is you can command a team of heroes, each of which you’ll collect as you play (there are 40 different unique heroes to collect). So, for example, you can play as one hero, then touch a button on screen to select another person in your party to use that persons unique skills. This all happens in real time, so switching to the right players for the job at hand is part of the fun.
Limbo is another of those games that sparked the imagination so much that imitators proliferated like baby rabbits. It’s the side-scrolling puzzle adventures of a nameless boy looking for his lost sister, which in itself isn’t particularly original. But the game is stylish in a eerie, monochromatic, minimalist way reminiscent of old films and creepy children’s books. It’s this style that has made one of the games one of the most beloved indie titles released in recent years. The spiritual sequel, Inside is available on the Xbox One.
