Although many people don’t like to admit it, we have become heavily reliant on our smartphone devices in today’s world. For holidaymakers exploring New York or experiencing beach life in the Bahamas, our miniature handheld devices can come in handy during a trip away, be it to contact a local taxi service or to play games.
The latter option certainly appeals to travelers in the modern world, as smartphone gaming’s appeal continues to grow. During your next escape, these types of games can be loaded up in seconds and offer a short burst of entertainment while waiting for the sun to come back out or during a long coach journey.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at 10 top smartphone-friendly games that many holidaymakers travel with.
Threes is simple but solid
This simple-but-solid product tasks players with swiping and then combining small numbers into bigger numbers without the board filling. Threes is easy to understand, although it does get harder and harder.
Desert Golfing has over 10,000 holes
Desert Golfing certainly isn’t the most intricate release on the list but it serves up plenty of entertainment. One for golfers to tackle, there are over 10,000 holes to get through in this one.
