The mobile gaming market is evolving and becoming more popular with every passing month so here is a list of the top 5 most addictive gaming apps that you can download from the iStore onto the iPhone mobile device.
That’s right, the 2K Sports-developed basketball game app is back for the latest instalment and it is a sports game that reaches beyond just appealing to basketball fans. The intense end-to-end action that players can enjoy on this app means that there is no drop in the excitement or thrills as players can control some of their favourite NBA stars in a game that does not look to dissimilar from a title you would expect to see on a PS4 or Xbox One.
This latest version offers players the chance to play with an updated roster that has all of the current NBA teams and players involved with the hugely popular career mode included. A number of unique heads have also been added to the game. Players can also use their MyPlayer in Blacktop mode now. The control system is also simpler than ever before making this a very easy game to pick up and play.
Online poker experienced a massive increase in popularity after Chris Moneymaker’s success at the 2003 World Series of Poker as the first online qualifier to win the tournament. Over the years, poker has evolved and shifted to the mobile platform with huge success and Zynga Poker is evidence of that success. The iPhone has benefited from this move to mobile gaming for poker and Zynga Poker is an example of that.
This app really shouldn’t be an app. That is because it feels so much more than just an app. Players can play practice tables or competitive tables through this app. A range of tables are also available such as sit ‘n’ go tables and shootout tournament tables. Free chips are awarded to players on a daily basis and there is also the chance to win additional chips through winning tournaments so there are plenty of excuses for players to keep checking back and playing regularly.
Once you’ve got the hang of the game with ‘free money’ apps like this, there’s tons of online poker sites ready to take your first real money deposit. 888 Poker is one of many providers which offers an exclusive app – you can find details of the 888 offering here.
The Walking Dead: Season Two
The Walking Dead started life as a comic book series and is now one of AMC’s most watched television series of all time and is currently in its sixth season. The show follows the lives of Rick Grimes and his allies as they navigate and survive a post-apocalyptic world that is plagued by the undead and nasty humans.
A number of zombie apocalypse games have done well on computer consoles such as The Last Of Us and Resident Evil but this game has dominated the mobile arena. This version, that has been developed by TellTale Games, is the follow-up to the original award-winning release. Players take control of an 11 year old girl called Clementine who is forced to make difficult decisions to try and stay alive in this horrid new world.
There is something in the name of this iOS app that suggests how addictive it is to play. Trivia Crack has received an update for 2016 so if you think you have tried it and done it all then think again. Let the friendly spinner wheel Willy pose you questions from six different categories as you attempt to answer your way to winning six crowns.
Trivia Crack offers thousands upon thousands of unique questions with players able to play in any one of up to 20 languages. There is also the opportunity to create your own questions in the Factory so there is technically no end to the potential of this game. There is also a social aspect as players can interact with each other during the quiz. The collectable card collection only adds to the addiction levels of this superb app.
Cut The Rope 2
If you haven’t heard of the Cut The Rope gaming app then it can only be assumed that you have been in a coma for the last 5 years. This game was updated by ZeptoLab UK in 2015 and continues to be one of the most addictive gaming apps that has ever hit the Apple iStore.
The concept is simple. You must lead the central character Om Nom through a number of testing levels set in cities, underground tunnels, junk yards, and forests as he tries to pursue his ultimate goal of candy. You must cut his rope to help guide him through the levels.
This latest version offers players a wealth of new characters, new locations, new hats, and new adventures. It almost feels like a completely new game with enhanced graphics and a lot more depth than the original. The result is a gaming app that continues the fine tradition of Om Nom and the Cut The Rope series.
