PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) was initially released on mobile in 2018. As much as it is still alive on the PC version, the game has enticed many players with its availability on iOS, Android and the Google Play Store. PUBG is based on the popular multiplayer game genre battle royale, which makes players strategize through survival instincts in order to win the game. Unlike Fortnite, PUBG offers a more realistic game experience.

Not only is Clash Of Clans one of the first games SuperCell released, it is one of their most successful and highly rated. In this thrilling strategy-based game, players have total control over their base and decide what to do in order to upgrade and refine it. Clash of Clans brings together players to form clans, who then work together to defeat other clans, donate troops and earn trophies.  There are many strategies a player can use to defeat the enemy, making the game strategic and fun to play. Overall, Clash Of Clans is a very well rounded game with good graphics and an addicting game experience.

Although not as popular as Clash of Clans, Call of Duty is still popular among mobile gamers.  Call of Duty falls into the battle royale game genre, but it also has a zombie mode, which is a fan-favorite in the COD realm. The game offers multiplayer and single-player modes and is similar to other battle royale games in terms of graphics and the interior design of the maps.

Brawl Stars is one of the games developed by SuperCell that was released in 2017. It’s an animated shooting game that requires players to be more strategic as they level up and their opponents become more and more competitive. The game maps and modes alternate every day, so players do not get bored of repetition. It also gives players the option to team up with friends or play solo in matches. The more trophies a player earns, the more rewards they receive, such as opening up bigger and better boxes that potentially have new brawlers that the player has not yet unlocked. As you progress through the game and unlock new rewards, you will find that it is very addictive and hard to not want more.

Pokemon Go is an augmented-reality mobile video game that was part of a worldwide trend when it first came out in 2016. Pokemon Go taps into players’ nostalgia as they are greeted by Pokemon, who they may recognize from playing the original video game when they were younger. The game is location-based and the goal is for players to find “hot spots” where players have a higher chance of catching Pokemon with treats. Players can battle each other with the Pokemon they have already caught, trade Pokemon with friends and even evolve their Pokemon. Though it may not be as popular today, there are still lots of players who walk around with Pokemon Go on their phones trying to catch them all.
