Well, maybe little-known in regards to the general public. Aficionados of their particular genre are surely well-aware of their existence. However, if you’re a casual player, and are looking to embark on new gaming experiences, but aren’t too sure as to what kind of game you should endeavor to master, maybe this article will prove to be useful. It lists 4 different games in 4 different genres that you might not know about. And, we all know that new things are often exciting, so why not give something novel a try.
There is no question that smartphones have changed the gaming industry. They’ve probably had a lesser impact than consoles and personal computers, but their impression is one that shouldn’t be underestimated. Because, while these other methods of playing games focus on stunning graphics and complex gameplay, games that can be played on your phone are intended to be easy and fun.
And, while that might be true for most games available for mobile phones, some can be intricate and multifaceted. Below we offer a selection of games from both worlds.
Book of Dead – Online Casino Game
Perhaps, one of the most popular slots in existence. That’s not a small feat, as there’s allegedly close to five thousand of them in the digital sphere. This 2014, Play’n Go release is a staple at most online casinos, and is tied in with many bonuses, due to its notoriety.
It’s similar to Book of Ra, one of the more popular physical slot machines, so much so that some have called it a rip-off. There are also similarities to the game – Lord of The Ocean. But, its resemblance to these classics doesn’t take away from the fact that the game itself is terrific. If you’ve never played a modern slot game, this is a great place to start. The game can be found at platforms such as Wildz Indian Casino, one of the best places to play games for real money.
Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey – Puzzle Game
If you are a fan of word-forming puzzle games and loved the highly-popular Bookworm or its sequel Bookworm Adventures, then you’ll likely enjoy this title as well. You spell words to fight through more than 30 levels in this super-addictive romp.
Join the two title characters, Grimm and Rose, on their amazing journey through a world filled with treasures and monsters. There is little to no story to be found here, and the dictionary could be bigger, but it’s free, you can play each level in four different ways, and it allows for character customization. All in all, it’s a great time-waster.
Ticket to Ride – Board Game
Perhaps you remember or have played this one throughout the years. It came out 16 years ago and was known under a few different names. It’s a German-style board game that was created by Alan R. Moon, one of the more famous board game designers. And, as soon as it hit the market it began winning major awards left and right and selling in huge quantities. Today, the number of copies sold is over 8 million.
Now, the game is available in mobile form for both Android and iOS. You can travel the world from Europe to India while going through China and tackling challenges at every step by purchasing cards, each with their specific set of rules. You can play against players from all over the globe and no game is ever the same.
World of Kings – Mobile MMORPG
Set in the fantasy realm of Ideon, World of Kings is a World of Warcraft-inspired game that was developed by Chinese studio ZLOONG and released in 2019. The game features an impressive open world with a variety of playable races.
Everything in this game has a very obvious and deliberate World of Warcraft feel. Even the soundtrack is created by the same composer, Russell Brower. But that aside, it has good gameplay, top-notch production value, varied PvP options, and many more things to like. It’s also excellently optimized for mobile play. If you crave some outer-worldly action, this one’s for you.
