Five Games to Play on Your Mobile in 2018
This year has seen the world of mobile gaming reach a new zenith, with top titles that were once only playable on high-end consoles now being available on your average smartphone. Since the explosive success of Pokemon Go! back in 2016, game developers have been pouring increasingly substantial amounts of money and resources into producing complex, entertaining and high-quality mobile games.
The smartphone is almost certainly the new frontier for gaming, as the titles, some of which are free, are increasingly able to compete with the very best that top-of-the-line consoles like the PlayStation 4 are able to offer. It’s safe to say that we’ve definitely come a long way since the heady days of Snake on the iconic Nokia 3210. From highly-intelligent survival games to immersive first-person shooters, here are the best games to play on your mobile in 2018.
5. Rollercoaster Tycoon
Anyone remember Rollercoaster Tycoon? The cultural icon of 90s PC gaming has finally made it to smartphone, and it’s better than ever. The model follows the original pretty much to the letter; you’re a rollercoaster tycoon who is in charge of building a hugely successful theme park, and you have the freedom to create the weirdest and most wonderful rides you can in order to reel the customers in. There are 95 parks to play through, and plenty more downloadable content available in the form of in-app purchases, so you won’t run out of things to do any time soon.
Mobile gaming looks increasingly ready to take on all of the most high-budget titles as technology continues to improve. This has been a year for games that are not only sophisticated, but also intelligent works of art, and we look forward to whatever 2019 may bring.
