6. Death Worm – iOS, Android
We seem to have an undue fascination with worms. While some find them repulsive others like the guys from PlayCreek, have used them as sources of entertainment for the mobile community. Death Worms has you controlling an overgrown metal munching, underground traveling monster worm (remember the movie Tremors?) and, simply put, it’s your job or vocation, if you will, to leap up out of the ground and gobble up all that there is. Your “banquet” includes the likes of birds, animals, humans as well as tanks, helicopters and anything else above ground. Death worms is available on multiple platforms and is priced at $0.99 (Rs. 49) on the Apple iTunes Store and Rs. 145.81 on the Android App market. Free versions are also available. So get to munching.
Feed the hunger
7. Stupid Zombies – iOS, Android
Well, the fact is being the “living” dead does imply a certain lack of brain functionality so a stupid zombie is actually a redundancy. In this game, like any of the hundreds of movies, books, series, video games, what have you, your duty is to kill Zombies. As usual you’re equipped with very limited ammo - it’s never easy is it. Using either direct shots or ricochets off of pilings or walls, you need to make sure you nail every one of those critters dead. It’s quite interesting especially with cool rag-doll effects and blood splatter thrown in to add a little “reality” to the game. Stupid Zombies is free on the Android market and priced at $0.99 (Rs. 49) for iOS handsets.
Headshots count for more points
8. Asphalt 6: Adrenaline - iOS, Android
For the racing fans the Asphalt series has been big on the mobile circuit, pardon the pun. The latest edition to the franchise is Asphalt 6: Adrenaline which showcased some pretty cool graphics and we recommend running this only on higher end devices for better performance and smoother gameplay. As usual you’re a street racing maniac who races for cash and cars and this latest version also includes the totally radical Audi RS 3 Sportback. Other cars can also be unlocked as you progress through the stages and various outdoor arenas using gyroscopic controls for driving. On the iTunes Store, Asphalt 6 is available for $0.99 (Rs. 49) and it’s Rs. 340 on the Google Android App Market.
BOOST your way to the Finish Line
9. Cut the Birds – iOS, Android
Now here’s a game that seems quite familiar and yet it isn’t. Cut the Birds is an amalgamation of Fruit Ninja with the now insanely popular Angry Birds characters. The object of the game is to slice, or in this case “slice” the rather “angry looking” birds before they fly in to your screen. Of course it’s not as simple as it sounds and one must beware of nasty bombs flying around as well that look a little too much like those exploding black birds I’m sure most are familiar with. As the game progresses the birds increase in number as you can imagine and although not as visually creative as the others mentioned, it does manage to stay entertaining for long stretches. Cut the Birds is available for free for Android as well as iOS devices.
A chance to take a swipe at the birds
10. Words with Friends - iOS, Android
Words with Friends is a sort of socially based mobile game. Think of it as Scrabble with online partners. It’s a cross platform game that allows Android and iOS users to play with each other irrespective of what OS they’re using. You simply sign up with a valid email address and you can play against other users who might be in your contact list. It’s a simple UI with colorful keys and an easy to use system. One could also think of it as a sort of crossword puzzle being played with online users. The best part is it’s free for all users.
