Best 4 One-Handed Games on iOS and Android
This post is for all those lazy gamers out there who don’t want playing a game to be a tedious task rather a relaxing session in which you have to put in minimum effort. iOs and Android both have a massive catalog of games to choose from. From the classical Temple Run to the latest Super Mario Run. These are my favourite four games from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store that you can play single-handly.
Missiles is the only Android exclusive in this list of awesome games. In this game, you are the pilot of a plane and your objective is to avoid the incoming missiles. This may sound easy but take my word for it, it isn’t. I play it all day long on my Nexus 5X. Your plane is really slow and the incoming missiles have really surprising trajectory, making it difficult to dodge. You can only avoid them by maneuvering around their path. The missiles either hit you or run out of fuel and then replaced by more. During the game you get points for the time you stay alive and you also collect stars. These points can be used to upgrade your aeroplane for increased speed or maneuvering.
Remember that craze that went over people just a few months back, about flipping a bottle with your hand so it would land on its bottom? Bottle Flip is based on that short-lived global trend. All you have to do is flip a plastic bottle. Don’t worry, you won’t have to stress about how to get the flipping done right. But, what you have to worry about is how far you have to flip the bottle. Your aim is to flip the bottle with the just the right amount of energy so that it lands on the target area. This target area may be a small cushion, a wide table or any other surface. You have to adjust the power to throw the bottle.
Super Mario Run
Super Mario Run was unveiled by Nintendo on Apple’s event which was a mind-blowing surprise for all the Nintendo fans. I play it on my brother’s iPhone 7 on the weekend, all day long. Super Mario Run is a 2D platformer game in which Mario runs on his own and you only have to tap to make him jump for mushrooms and coins. The story is pretty much the same. Princess Peach gets kidnapped by Bowser and you have to save her. It is addicting once you get a hang of it. There is a the additional feature of Toad rally in which you race your opponent in a timed race. The one who wins it, gets toads which in turn help in building your kingdom after destruction done by Bowser during the kidnapping of Princess Peach. This adds an interesting aspect to the game. If you were a Nintendo fan when you were young, then this game is a serious dose of nostalgia. Super Mario Run will soon be coming to Android as well. You can register for it, here.
Dots & Co
By Playdots, Inc.
People who play mobile games regularly might think “Isn’t this game a bit old?” I agree, it’s not the latest game in this list but it deserves a mention. Dots & Co is perhaps the most simple game in this list, yet it so remarkably hooking. Connect the dots, that’s it. Challenge is introduced by changing the shape of the board and giving goals for the player to meet in each level, like the number of dots to be removed in that level. The simplicity of the whole game is staggering, how something so simple can be so unique.
