Mobile games have always been associated with phones, but since the popularisation of tablets, and the huge success of Apple’s version, gaming has shifted onto tablets as well. While there is a magnitude of devices available, in this post we’ll be taking a look at some of the best games that is compatible with Blackberry’s Playbook.
Don’t forget to share your list of top games for Blackberry’s Playbook in comments below.
The name pretty much says it all, but with a shortage of decent Blackjack games on the market, this one is rather interesting. Naturally the game is Blackjack, and follows all the traditional rules, but with a rather tongue-in-cheek design. Being called Simple Blackjack, the names and scores are hand-written on pieces of paper. It’s still a great game, and will keep users busy for hours.
Moto X Mayhem
Sticking to physics, motocross riders will find a lot of pleasure out of Moto X Mayhem. It’s similar to Trials HD on the Xbox, where players will have to race and drive the motorcycle across the terrain without falling off. It also seems easier than what it actually is, but gamers will find it challenging and fun. The graphics could have been slightly better, but they’re sufficient for the task.
Created by Amanita Design, Machinarium is the latest addition to the Blackberry App World. The game is a bit of a point-and-click in the traditional sense, and players will have to guide the little robot character, called Josef, through the world to save his girlfriend. The hand-drawn backgrounds are rich in details and it give off an almost steam punk feel. It’s a great game, although it can be a challenging at times.
The Visitor Chronicles
For those that like horror games, The Visitor will be perfect. The title is more correctly an interactive horror adventure, where players take control of a little alien that creates chaos on everyone. Players move around the world by getting the pre-determined moves right (kind of like quick-time events), but it’s a lot of fun. Stealth is a large part of the fun, and there is a lot of cartoon violence and gore.
DoodleBlast is a great physics game, and although it has been released for other operating systems, it’s a must-have for Playbook owners. Players will be tasked to get the balls into the baskets, but with only a limited supply of ink. Although the game seems low in detail, it’s highly addictive and not as easy as it seems.
