Several mobile games have become more popular amid the COVID-19 pandemic. So while you’re at home looking for some good games to play, here are some titles that you should try out:

Among Us

Among Us - Apps on Google Play

An online multiplayer social deduction game like Mafia, InnerSloth’s “Among Us” is recommended to play with your friends.

It brings you intriguing, funny interactions in cold betrayal and “triangle of trust” to win the game. You cannot trust your friends, and they cannot trust you in this game either. It’s highly engaging.

Playing this game solo would be a bore, however. Killed by an impostor and becoming a ghost can also be a chore if you think doing tasks are too dull.

Overall, Among Us is a pretty solid game that doesn’t require high specs and can be played by anyone either through mobile or desktop platforms.

Pokémon Go

Niantic reveals new info about 'Pokemon Go' Buddy Adventure

An augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic, Pokémon is still doing pretty well even while many of its players are stuck at home.

The developers have been putting up features and events that will get you to catch Pokémon and have fun while at home so you wouldn’t have to risk going outside.

Pokémon Go can be played solo or with friends, but if you’re looking for a casual game whenever you got some time to spare, this game is for you.

Genshin Impact

Zelda: Breath of the Wild on mobile? Genshin Impact preview | Articles | Pocket Gamer

A rising star of anime-centered, action role-playing gacha game, Genshin Impact is trending with its open-world mechanics, wherein you can freely explore and interact with your surroundings, such as setting the grass on fire, if you’re up for that.

It has fantastic graphics and entertaining gameplay rooted in role-playing video games. Available on Windows PC, Sony PlayStation 4, and mobile devices, the game is free-to-play.

There are some in-app purchases for those who are willing to pay up to get better chances in acquiring stronger characters, but it doesn’t hinder a player from getting them for free as long as they work hard for it.

One thing to note though, the game is not compatible with every device as it demands higher specifications and graphics.


Minecraft: Pocket Edition (for Android) Review | PCMag

A sandbox action-adventure and survival game, Minecraft is recommended for those looking for open-world games up to the max.

It’s also a cross-platform game that you can play with your friends on different devices. It can be played offline or online. All you need is your creativity, as the game demands you to become the architect of your imagination.

Sadly, you have to pay about P300 to play the game, which is relatively affordable for its price. If you don’t mind paying a few bucks for a fun time and you got your friends to play with you, this is a must-have!

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is coming to mobile this month, first on iOS

Stardew Valley is an open-ended simulation role-playing indie game where you will live up to a role as a farmer after inheriting your grandfather’s old farm plot in Stardew Valley.

Developed by Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, it’s available on different platforms, including mobile. For those who are looking for Animal Crossing types of games, this is highly recommended.

For those who are not into that kind should still play the same, as it does not only takes you to become a successful farmer, but you can also cultivate your own set of skills and build your profession (a guise of RPG classes) that you don’t have to become a farmer to play the game!

Stardew Valley also boasts engaging storylines and lovable non-player characters (NPCs) to date and to get married to, just like in Animal Crossing.

The game is not for free, but you won’t regret buying it. If you’re into creative games but is overwhelmed with open-world type of games, you may consider buying it.

It’s perfect for both casual and hardcore players and can be enjoyed alone or with friends. Seriously, you’ll kick back on your seat and relax while enjoying playing this game.
