The Best Gaming Apps Of 2016

--Friday, August 5, 2016
Games are the best part of smartphones. Ever since snake started appearing on old Nokias, gaming and phones have just gone together. In today's modern market, you might have a great time with gambling apps, for example - there's nothing like playing a quick hand of poker and then going out and buying free scratch off tickets. There's more to gaming than just making money, though, and there have been some spectacular gaming apps released in 2016. These apps vary in their design sense and game type, but they're absolutely worth looking at if you care about gaming apps.

Pokemon Go

It's really hard to call Pokemon Go anything but an utter revolution in mobile gaming. There's nothing complex about it, really - it's built on the backbone of another game, and the actual mechanics are really simple. However, the ease of play and the clean design really work for this free-to-play marvel. You never have to spend a cent when you play, yet you'll likely find yourself spending way too much time and energy with this app if you download it. It's been a long time since there was an app that captured the imagination quite like this one.

Futurama: Game of Drones

Matching games have always been a huge part of the mobile space. They're relatively easy to make and monetize, so company after company has come out with them. Futurama takes the crown this year because of the spectacular writing that's behind it. While the levels aren't particularly inspired, everything that surrounds them oozes charm. If you were a fan of the original show, you'll love the app.  Even if you're not, you'll get a few good chuckles and be forced to admit that it's at least as good as all of the other Match 3/Match 4 games on the market.

Monument Valley

This puzzle game is out of this world, especially when it comes to style. Again, this isn't a particularly complex game, but it does make the most of the smartphone's size and graphical fidelity. You guide a princess through a series of increasingly hard puzzles, and each brings with it its own mind-bending rules. This game is a great example of how style can really add to substance, and a good example of how games on smartphones don't have to adhere to easy categories. If you love games, this is one you must try.
