5 Little Known Mobile Games App You’ll Have Great Fun With
Just like other services, games of all sorts have already dominated the mobile market. You can easily enjoy your phone not only as a communication device, but more of a gaming console these days. But just like other apps, today’s mobile games don’t always come free. Many of them, especially the more popular ones, have to be purchased and updated every now and then.
However, if you are looking for mobile games that are also fun and entertaining, but cost less than the already famous ones, then you may want to look at the little known mobile games available on app markets today. There are also a lot of them that are available for download, and mind you, many of these are free.
So, what are the mobile games that you should start playing today?
Punch Quest is hailed to be one of the best mobile games of 2012, according to TechCrunch.com. Surprisingly though, it’s still little known in the market, and this may be due to its old school theme and layout.
But Punch Quest is a totally exciting game, regardless if you’re a boxing fan or just in need of a stress reliever. The game is more like a maze, and your objective is to punch down your opponents in order to get into the next level. Your enemies include zombies, skeletons, shield-wielding orcs, dwarves and wraiths. You can also collect coins by defeating certain enemies and getting special items across the game level, and you can use these to purchase more weapons and power-ups that you can use in the more advanced levels.
If you’re after going into a quest to victory against all those nasty creatures, then this is the game to play. Right now it is only available on iPhone, iPad and iTouch and can be downloaded for free.
When it comes to 3D graphics and design interface, the mobile game The Room tops the list of the most entertaining mobile games today. It is a mystery game that offers a different kind of adrenaline rush, which you’d definitely enjoy especially if you’re into solving puzzles.
In this game, you will have to open a series of boxes that contain puzzles that need to be solved. Once you complete the puzzles, you can then move on to the next level. But what makes the game more exciting is its graphics and audio, which create the authentic haunted house vibe.
This mobile game is heavy on graphics, so it is more ideal to be played on iPad 2 or higher. It is also a paid app, but can be purchased at a low price of $1.99 at the Apple Store.
Meanwhile, if you’re after a simple but fulfilling quest game, then you should check out Jetpack Joyride, which is available on Android for free. In this game, all you have to do is collect as much as coins as you can before dying. The coins serve as points and help you in advancing to the next level.
What makes this game fun is that it is based on the premise of the main character stealing a top-secret machine gun-powered jetpack from a laboratory, thus he is always chased by different characters throughout the whole game.
You can also customize your character’s look and appearance by changing his clothes, jetpacks and vehicles. And yes, because of its fun sounds and comic humor, it would be no surprise if you get addicted to the game in no time.
While it is currently available only on Android, many users are now requesting Jetpack Joyride to be available on iOS as well, given its totally funny vibe and addicting storyline.
To all the casino fanatics, Foxwoods Casino would be the best app for you to play. This game app, which is available currently on iOS, is the mobile replica of the world famous Foxwoods Resort Casino in CT, the largest casino in the world.
Foxwoods Casino offers almost all the games found in the actual casino center, from poker to roulette and even slots. You can choose the kind of game to play, then place a bet to start raking in your money. Of course, when playing this app, you should have the skills to win.
You can use this app to play online with other registered gamers, and you can as well check your stats, winnings and losses on the app’s interface. You can also withdraw your winnings on the app as well.
Remember the ‘90s Japanese console game “Tamagotchi”? The said toy came in the form of a virtual pet that kids loved to take care of, and it was handy in the sense that it was built on a fancy egg-shaped keychain. If you are a child of the ‘90s and would want to relive that game, then you can do so with Pou.
Pou is a mobile game app where you will be taking care of a virtual pet of the same name. You can feed Pou, give him a bath, change his clothes and accessories, shop for him, and even let him sleep on a scheduled basis. Pou also contains a lot of different games that you can play with, so you won’t get bored with simply taking care of him.
Pou can be addicting for some, but what makes it a fun game to play is that you don’t have to look after your stats every now and then-you’ll also enjoy watching Pou grow up (and grow fat) over the course of time.
The Pou mobile app is currently available for free download on Android.
Why choose the little known games
Choosing the little known games can be more beneficial in the long run. Unlike the more popular games, you are not compelled to spend more on your mobile games, especially if you’re only after getting rid of the boredom. You can also show your friends these unique apps that they haven’t encountered yet, as these games are not as famous as their mainstream counterparts.
