Five of the best tablet games of 2016
The mix of high-resolution touch screens, speed and functionality make tablets great for gaming. As a result, you can now access to thousands of excellent titles, whether on iOS or on Android. Here are some of our favourites…
Monument Valley is clearly inspired by MC Escher prints and optical illusions. You must take Princess Ida through a maze of surreal-looking structures and monuments. You do this by rotating the screen with touch controls.
If you’re a fan of experience-focused games, we’d advise picking up Monument Valley right this second! It’s both ambiguous and mysterious enough to keep you thinking. Meanwhile, it’s snappy pace is exciting rather than rushed.
Call of Champions
Call of Champions is a MOBA game that is very easy to get to grips with. It’s also both fast and elegant.
Each game is a three vs. three match-up, with its heroes’ objective being to use a ball to destroy an enemy base and its tower defences.
Similar games like Vainglory offer the full 20-minute experience onto tablets. Yet Call of Champions stands out for compressing a full game into a five-minute round.
This adds a quick playing feel and arguably makes it all the more suited for playing on your tablet!
Red Flush Casino
For those into online casino games, there is no better choice on tablet than Red Flush Online Casino. While the mobile option offers fewer games than its desktop counterpart, the range of video casino, table and poker games is growing all the time. Red Flush Casino has been online since 2008 so has plenty of experience in building some fast paced casino games. The number of games available means that there is a game for everyone’s taste.
Prune is a suitably minimalist puzzle game based on the ancient Japanese art of bonsai growing. The aim of the game is to cultivate a growing plant, make use of the environment and avoid obstacles in your path. If you do everything right, an elegant bonsai tree with fresh blossoms will be your prize.
Prune also includes a screen capture function. This allows you to save particularly strange or elegant blooms on your tablet. This is no doubt a slightly strange game, but its minimalist graphics and relaxing atmosphere are a joy to behold.
A Good Snowman is Hard to Build
A Good Snowman is Hard to Build is an enchanting puzzle game that puts you in the role of a monster in a maze. Your aim is to build snowmen to keep you company; yet this isn’t as simple as it sounds.
The challenge lay in the fact that each snowman is built with three snowballs of decreasing size. The cutesy graphics, and calming air make this a great game for the whole family.
