2017 was a year of digital innovation, epic motion pictures, and most importantly for video gameaholics like us, groundbreaking mobile games. GameTruck Charlotte has narrowed down the top three mobile games of 2017, so far. PlaneScape Torment, Monument Valley 2, , and Silly Walks have captured our attention spans and drained our phone batteries. Just watch their gametrailers and you’ll be hooked, too.
The recent release of PlaneScape Torment has brought back memories of mobile games from before bus games even existed. The newest version called Torment: Tides of Numenera has gamers buzzing as the predecessor 1999 game called Planescape: Torment was one of the best of its time. Both versions feature an isometric RPG taking place in the world of Dungeons & Dragons, the original being considered a cult classic. Renowned for the weird, engrossing and intricate story behind it, now easily accessible through mobile applications. We can’t get enough of the peculiar characters, humour and emotional impact.
Monument Valley 2
Monument Valley by maker ustwo is a unique experience for mobile gaming. This sequel has been argued to be less engaging than the first one, Monument Valley 2 remains an enchanting world. The new version is loaded with new characters, twisting and turning the buildings to solve nail-biting puzzles and generate new, Escher-style paths to reach the next level. As one progresses through the game, they can use techniques from the original version to get ahead in MV2.
What could be more exciting than a game where you act as a pineapple on a quest to rescue your fruit pals before they get turned into fruit smoothies? Your one action as the pineapple is consistently tapping the screen to put the next foot down. The primary challenge is that the pineapple (other avatars can be unlocked) has a clumsy approach. Your wobbly gait will makes straight lines a challenge as you traverse hazardous kitchens and rescue your friends from tropical homicide. Silly Walks is colorful and lightly exhilarating for the average mobile game player.
