The Wide World of iOS GamingMarch 11, 2016
The world of gaming is constantly broadening its horizons, and with each passing day it becomes a more accessible and mainstream hobby in modern culture. It used to be that to play a game, you needed to go to the arcade and sink all of your spare change into the machines. Then, as time went on, innovations enabled people to play video games at home through consoles and PC’s, growing more and more sophisticated all the time. Now, you can play your favourite games at any time with a portable device and an internet connection.
Apple’s tablets have become very capable and robust gaming platforms over the years thanks to constant improvements and developments to the software, and these days it’s easier than ever to play games through your tablet or smartphone. Whether you want to use to games to help your children learn or simply want to unwind yourself after a long day, all you have to do is click through on your tablet to get started.
Now, in 2016, you can play a huge variety of game types and genres through your device, widening your game experience to include all kinds of experiences. For example, if you’re a fan of action games then you can play titles like Vainglory, World of Tanks and the Infinity Blade series. The list goes on, covering everything from puzzle games to shooter titles like the colourfully psychedelic Geometry Wars. There has been a huge outpouring of creativity and innovation in the games industry over the last decade, with indie developers coming to the fore in particular.
And, of course, there are classic titles that come under the admittedly broad umbrella of ‘casual gaming,’ such as Plants vs Zombies and the ubiquitous Angry Birds. With games looking and working better than ever, gone are the days where you needed the latest consoles or a top-notch PC to enjoy your favourite titles.
