Mobile games you play and enjoy
« on: November 11, 2018, 05:47:02 PM »
Hello

Based on all this immortal nonsense, I want to know what games you play, and how they are different, or the same as what you play on a real computer/console.

For me I have paid money (from a voucher) for the Rockstar pack.  This is GTA3, VC, SA, China Town Wars, LCS, Max Payne, Bully.  This represents a bunch of games I've played to death on PC, and some I had never had access to before.  However its difficult to find time to do it properly and the controls and screen aren't ideal.

I also bought The Talos Principle on ios.  Loved that game, haven't done much in iOS yet.
Also bought Bridge Constructor Portal which I don't have on PC yet.  I haven't got into this much.


Then there is the stuff I got as free apps, but am addicted to:

Hill Climb Racing 2: Physics based driving game, upgrade cars, race against ghost cars of other people.  I've played this mostly every day for over a year.  I enjoy the skill and buy/upgrade it all.    Have not spent a cent in it.

Mini Golf King: a PVP game, you put in virtual cash to play a game, winner takes all. If you aren't careful you have no cash and can't play more.  Upgrade your kit with time, has good social elements.  Skill and luck are required to play.

More recently got into another golf one "Golf Battle", its different and "Merge Plane" an idle game.

I've tried lots of things, but most get trashed.

None. Phones are for talking and texting and light internet (reddit, facebook, etc). Not for gaming. That's why I have two consoles and a badass PC.

:D

  • 7 Little Words
  • Monkey Wrench
  • Majong
  • Suduku
  • Cross Word

There is a certain pattern in all of those.  Word games, matching, logic.  Non-intensive UI.  Non complex games.

Any time that I have tried something more it didn't work.  A tablet might be ok but we are talking phones, and I don't currently have a tablet.

Pixel Dungeon and Risk.  They're just there in case I find myself waiting in line somewhere or otherwise have a few minutes to kill.

I can't imagine playing something in real time that requires any degree of control, on a phone.

Candy Crush...lvl 2538!!!

I had to google this...the highest possible level on a phone seems to be 2825.  So what you indicated is possible, and it makes me wonder if we need to have an intervention.

LOL!  It's taken me a few years to get to this point.  I really don't play it that much.  Maybe a couple hours a week. ;)

This is from the man who likes good cock punching like getting every achievement in Diablo3.  It surprises me he hasn't finished yet

So I've seen a few things so far even though we mostly share a love of the same game (at one point in time)
1) Not all of us game on mobile
2) We are all into different things
3) Not one of us is into a Diablo clone on mobile  ..

Finally found a mobile game I like!

Command & Conquer: Rivals

It is an RTS, based on unit engagement on a hex based map. The maps vary, heaps of units to play with, start with GDI and unlock NOD at lvl9 (doesnt take too long). All players are human after the tutorial, but I have never not gotten an opponent in under 20-30 seconds.

Gameplay is a fairly basic rock/paper/scissors dynamic (infantry/vehicles/aircraft). Very satisfying to outplay your opponent, which relies on having a flexible loadout of 6 units and adapting to your opponent.

There is a crate/card system for unit acquisition and upgrades (common/rare/epic).

Also the units are quite nostalgic for me, as I spent a lot of time on C&C games growing up, mostly Tiberian Sun, which I tried to play again recently but can't get it working properly on Win7 :(
