iPhone is more than a Phone: The Top 5 Game Apps

I grew up in the 90s and like any child in the 90s I had one hand attached to the game controller. I love playing video games and that is one type of entertainment that I enjoyed.

If you were to ask me when I was little children, what the future of the game console will be. I will never guess it would be in your phone. Now that you have games available literally in the palm of your hand, what do you choose out the million games available?

It just depends what type of gamer you are.

I am a gamer who likes puzzles, journeys, who likes to collect and likes games that are not bloody.  My friend and collaborator on YouTube, Sylvita Handmade is more a hand-held console gamer who loves story-line games, multiple player games and action adventures.  If you are like her, check out her YouTube for her top 5 games on the Nintendo 3DS.

If you are similar to my gamer personality, here are my top 5 game apps:

Heads Up!

Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 8.02.26 PMA virtual card game that is meant to play with multiple people. This game is definitely social and helps you fill the time between waiting for something to happen, such waiting for the ride or waiting for the party to start. It is a plus that Ellen created it.

Price: 99 cents


Honorable Mention

Pokemon Go

This game will let you captive Pokemon in real-time by virtual reality. Pokemon will be hiding through different locations in the world. Just point your camera to see which Pokemon you can capture. Battle your friends or train your Pokemon.

I can’t wait to play this. Definitely will download it the second it becomes live.

Till the next time, stay curious and you will discover a world beyond yours.
