Five must-have gaming apps for a true gamer

So you think you are a bigtime gamer? I am not so sure if you do not have these five gaming apps on your mobile. Worry not if you do not have one or several of the following apps because they are all downloadable from

Plants vs Zombies collection

Since the first Plants vs Zombies game released early in 2009, PopCap Games have added more sequels namely Plants vs Zombies: It’s About Time, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, and Plants vs Zombies: Heroes. Plants vs Zombies is one game that manages to combine everything from history, myths, and technology churning out one action-packed game enjoyable for any Jack and Jill. The latest additions of Plants vs Zombies are laden with time travelling features that make the game entertaining in as much as it is puzzling. The beauty of Plants vs Zombies is that it is available on many platforms including Microsoft Windows, Android, and iOS. It’s also a freemium game meaning you can enjoy many features without actually engaging in microtransactions.

Black Fortress

Black Fortress is all about building, fighting and surviving, as it is a combination of Minecraft and Tower Defence. Black Fortress goes through a cycle of day and night that is not changeable so embrace yourself to fight the menacing Goblocks during the thick of night. Black Fortress supports multiplayer playing up to four players. It’s available on iOS but developers, Fours4ken Media said soon it will be available on Android.

The Walking Dead

This game adaptation of the TV series by the same name, ‘The Walking Dead’ is as good as it gets for a game. In its first year, The Walking Dead won the “Game of the Year” VGA 2012. It has since added some sequels, which continue to make it one of the best games of all time. The Walking Dead follows the journey of Lee Everett (played by you of course) as he tries to guide his group of followers from the army of zombies in his hometown of Georgia. The game is available on most platforms including iOS and Android.

Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin

One of the most immersive games I have ever played. In Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin; you play the character of Lemmy, a microscopic tentacle that escaped an experiment only to end up in a maze of flesh and guts inside the body of Professor Phluff. Your aim is to survive in that maze of flesh, blood, and guts while plotting your way out.

The Room

The Room is set out in a single room where you open a box and find the initials, A.S wrapped inside. From there, the quest is to figure out what to do with this set of initials. The first game, The Room is rather short but for a longer version, you can download The Room: Epilogue. The Room is playable on both iOS and Android.
