In addition to being key tools for work, smartphones are also characterized by being key companions at times when we have to wait in line, or when that person with whom we have an appointment takes a few minutes to arrive . Taking into account these situations, at Apple we made a list of 10 games for iOS that we can enjoy if we have only 10 minutes for a game.
Let’s start our listing with a classic. In case you didn’t know it, Jetpack Joyride is an action game in which the main character keeps moving continuously, forcing players to dodge obstacles while collecting coins, tokens or vehicles to get more points and go as far as possible .
Although in principle the concept of Jetpack Joyride may sound a little monotonous and simple, as you progress you will encounter various missions and challenges that the game imposes. As users reach more levels within the game, they get money with which can buy new items such as boots that make them jump more or even new jetpacks . Of course, Jetpack Joyride is available for free on the App Store.
Plants vs Zombies 2
Another classic that could not be missed in this count. Plants vs Zombies 2 is a title that takes place in scenarios such as Ancient Egypt, a pirate ship and the Wild West, and features a board where players can see what level they’re at and how they’re progressing through the game. Therefore, we can play at any time of the day or week, to complete all the levels that, of course, have a greater degree of difficulty.
To celebrate Halloween, PopCap updated its game and we can find some quite curious new features in this version. Plants vs Zombies 2 is available in the App Store for free.
If you like adrenaline and driving at full speed, you’ll love this title. Dashy Crashy sets us a goal that may be harder than we think: to get on the road without crashing into any of the vehicles on the road. The gameplay is simple, we just have to slide our finger from one side to the other to change lanes, move it down if we want to accelerate or slide it up if we want to brake.
The further we go, the game will start to push us to go faster, so at some point it will be almost impossible to avoid the obstacles we encounter along the way . The game is interesting because it allows us to play in real time with other people or even with friends who are using the app at the same time as us. Dashy Crashy can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
Dan The Man
This interesting game from the creators of Fruit Ninja, has some elements that remind us of Super Mario Bros. It is an action game in which we will have to lead Dan through different levels, not without first destroying all his enemies . That’s why, throughout its 12 levels, we’ll be able to enjoy close combat, find different weapons to attack or shoot from a distance, among other curiosities. Dan The Man is available for free in the App Store.
The creators of Crossy Road bring a new game that allows us to capture the animals to include them in our own zoo , all in a very friendly way without hurting them. The title has an 8-bit setting and in the style of Minecraft, it transports us to different interesting scenarios to spend a fun time with our mobile. Rodeo Stampede can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store.
Modern Combat 5
This has been rated as one of the best action and shooting games of 2015. Modern Combat 5 is notable for having several game modes, such as team battles, capture the flag, 2 on 2, etc. In addition, for those who prefer to play alone, they can also choose to play the individual campaign and encounter extreme situations to save a world that is on the verge of anarchy. Best of all, the title can be downloaded for free from the App Store.
A game that the very Frank Underwood of House of Cards would recommend us to spend our free time. Monument Valley is a title that introduces us completely in the world of geometry, and imposes us as mission to take the protagonist from one place to another of the map moving different elements to guide him through the right path .
The game settings are very graphically pleasing, so be prepared to have a harmonious experience in every way. Monument Valley costs 3.99 euros and you can download it from the App Store.
Real Racing 3
Besides having a spectacular graphic section, Real Racing 3 has all kinds of real vehicles, belonging to world-renowned firms, which we will have to modify and acquire to become the fastest on the track . So if you have 10 minutes free at work and want to distract your mind a little, download this game for free from the App Store.
Remembering is living, and that’s why we had to mention this successful iOS game in our list. 80 Days has a simple theme, because to be able to go around the world we will have to plan, measure and manage our character’s money, health and time. Therefore, if you want to survive and reach your goal, you will have to be aware of Mr. Fogg’s health, the price of each new journey and plan how to overcome the problems that arise with our companion or with the items we carry in the suitcase. This entertaining game can be downloaded for 4.99 euros from the App Store.
Mortal Kombat X
We conclude this list with a fight game. If you are a follower of Mortal Kombat, this mobile version could be a good option to pass the time. Extreme violence, a lot of blood and the expected fatalities, are some of the details that you will see in this installment. Although the game doesn’t have any cost in the App Store, there are purchases inside the application, so when you buy some coins, you can buy new characters, of course some more expensive than others .
