It seems like every few weeks there’s a new game making the rounds on the pocket gamer circuit that seems to have everyone addicted for a month or two.
They’re the games you see people playing on the train or while they wait for their mates. So I thought I’d road test the top three games I’ve seen being played around town the most to see what all the fuss is about.
Splish Splash Pong
Take the general premise of Frogger, immerse it in water and add in one determined duck surrounded by a gang of sharks and you’ve got Splish, Splash, Pong! It sounds simple enough – bounce the duck between two posts to collect gold coins and tap the screen to avoid colliding with sharks. The reality however is a lot harder. Check out our video below to see exactly what it entails.
Download it at the App store.
Hardest Game Ever 2
Brag much? The name of this game had me raising a sceptical brow and after breezing through the first few levels I thought I’d successfully debunked the title. But after a few more levels the struggles began. The game itself is a series of mini-games that range from fairly simply to teeth-grindingly annoying. Interestingly this game encourages the use of cheats to get through to the next round. While I thought I was above it, it wasn’t long before the cheat button became an awfully tempting sight.
Finally a game that does require cobra-like reflexes! Alphabetty might sound like a children’s game but just like its stable mates Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga, it’s an addictive skills-based game. The aim of the game is to assist Professor Alpha, Betty and friends explore the mouse world and collect new words to complete the Encyclopaedia of Everything.
Do you have a game you’re currently addicted to or one you’ve just given up on? Tell us in the comments and we’ll road test the most popular one.
