Clash of Clans
You probably didn’t need to be told about this one topping the list, currently. Clash of Clans has such a large scale marketing campaign going on right now that their thumbnail of a yelling grunt with yellow hair screaming, sword in hand, is the most seen thing on your phone other than your home screen.
Clash of Clans is a strategy game that pits you against other clans with their own individual villages. You have to build up your village, increase your military might, and take down other players for rewards. Rise in the ranks and you may be able to conquer the realm.
There are single and multi-player options in this game, so you don’t necessary have to play with others, but you would certainly be missing a large portion of the game by playing alone.
Another obvious game, as you most likely already know someone who has it already. You are probably already stuck on a level throughout the different worlds that this game lets you play through. It is kind of like a candyland board game type environment that you are traversing stage to stage. The actual game play is the same as bejeweled or other such: you match colors to break the candies.
The visuals of this game, fun and endearing, are one of the main reasons for its success. Also, the sound effects can be both rewarding and infuriating – both pushing you to keep trying until you win or get completely candy stuck! Special striped candies can be made with a 5+ combo match which obliterate whole lines at once. It is oddly satisfying and addicting. This game is free to play and mostly single player, but you can purchase in game coins to buy power ups or your friends can give you extra lives and other such goodies.
It’s surprising that pandora is still top dog in the app store with services like spotify hedging in on the market, but it makes sense. Pandora is a great service that lets you make channels based on you favorite song or artist. Pandora then generates through its magical algorithms the songs it expects you to like. You may skip or thumbs up/down to make the channel personally yours. If you are getting bored of the music on your channel, you can add another artist to it or combine channels.
The only negative to this service are the ads. They pop-up after a few songs and you can’t mute them without pausing Pandora. Also, after continuously ignoring Pandora on your browser it will ask if you are still listening, which can interrupt a party mid-grind or thankfully shut it off if you fall asleep.
