There has never been a better time to start playing mobile games. With HD graphics that rival some console games, and fun multiplayer environments, the mobile gaming experience is no longer secondary to the experience on larger devices.
If you’re looking for some fun mobile games to play this May, why not check out some of these?
Bridge Constructor Portal
If you ever find yourself standing on the banks of a river or lake, admiring the engineering marvel of bridges, then this is the game for you. Bridge Constructor Portal is a puzzle game for Android and iOS devices that’ll test your understanding of physics in a fun way.
Help the traffic and people to safely traverse the gaps using a range of different bridge-building techniques. You use principles like beans, archest, trusses and suspension to connect the two sides.
At $5, it’s a little bit pricey, but it’s money well spent as you’ll have hours building bridges.
Card games are some of the oldest games that we still play today, standing the test of time thanks to their simplicity and accessibility, which makes them easy to understand and possible to play anywhere. While you can carry a pack of cards with you to play with friends, you can also download PokerStars’ mobile app and take part in games and tournaments from anywhere.
PokerStars is one of the biggest and best-known brands in the industry, and its mobile app delivers on the expectations this creates. You get the same great experience and features on your smartphone as you do when you play on your computer, including access to all the games and features.
Game Dev Tycoon
Game Dev Tycoon is a few years old now but remains great fun. It’s sort of the “Inception” of games. You are tasked with directing your character to develop a great video game title and then grow your business to become a gaming powerhouse.
You get to choose the types of games your company develops, and you can direct the research and development and marketing functions to help your business grow. It’s a fairly standard concept, similar to the many other games that use the “Tycoon” name, but it’s still great fun.
It also costs $5, but it’s totally worth it.
Call of Duty: Mobile
Released in October, Call of Duty: Mobile brings many of the features from the game’s other titles to a pocket-sized version. The latest battle pass was released at the end of April, along with a new multiplayer map and skins so there’s even more to enjoy.
It comes packed with many of the popular elements of Call of Duty. Play classic games like Domination and Search and Destroy on maps like Crash and Crossfire, or enjoy the Zombies mode that was first featured around 10 years ago.
There’s no single player campaign mode like in the console versions, but there is an A.I. multiplayer mode where you’re not playing against other people.
Exploding Kittens was a hit when it launched as a card game on Kickstarter. In fact, it continues to hold the record for being the highest funded game on the website.
It’s now available to download on mobile devices, meaning you can play anywhere without the need for cards. There’s even a single player mode for when no one else wants to avoid the feline ordinance.
The Exploding Kittens mobile app contains much of the same illustrations, helping to capture the spirit of the original game. There are also new cards that are exclusive to the digital game, so it’ll still be a new experience even if you’re an Exploding Kittens veteran.
You play the game by taking it in turns to draw cards. You continue drawing them until someone pulls an Exploding Kitten. If they don’t hold a defuse card they will be out of the game. The winner is the one that manages to avoid the kittens the longest.
No matter your taste in video games, these titles will give you hours of fun throughout May.
