People shouldn’t underestimate simple casual and puzzle games. Ever since their growth, travelling in public transports and waiting in long queues have become less boring. We even look forward to those little moments for ourselves, like when we go to bed and play for a while right before falling sleep.
Simple games have enhanced those experiences and are becoming more and more addictive every day, turning into daily habits which we can’t live without. Everyone owning a smartphone probably has their own favorite little games. Some of them are really popular (who hasn’t played Angry Birds?) but I’m trying to focus on other applications which are less known but equally entertaining.
One of those examples is the new Triple Town game. Triple Town is a really original puzzle app that has a similar premise to jewel and bubble games but turns it into a completely different game. Your goal is to build the biggest town by never running out of space to place the different items that are available. You need to match three items and then they will turn into a different one, up until all the spaces are filled and the game is over. Beautiful graphics, high playability and an extremely addictive gameplay.
Bacterium Evolution is another puzzle game which has had me addicted for weeks. It also has a three-matching system to play and the ultimate goal is to collect three bacteria from the same type so they can evolve into another. You need to rotate the main bacteria and drag it wherever you need it to be, in a tetris-like way. This is an excellent game for everyone and although there could be some improvements, it’s still much better than other popular games. Definitely, a good choice.
Physic-based games are among people’s favorites. Cut’n’roll is one of those apps that are extremely similar to many others but have something special that makes them interesting enough to keep us hooked. Help the turtle get to its destination by cutting the wood obstacles that hinder your path. There’s a limited number of cuts and only a few levels available, but even though it could be improved, this one’s an essential.
