For non-BlackBerry users, Research In Motion’s App World is laughable because it has fewer apps than Apple’s App Store and Android’s Play Store. But, does that mean that the BlackBerry apps are pitiful? I beg to disagree, because there are so many great games that you can enjoy on a BlackBerry PlayBook.
Tired of shooting angry birds at bad green piggies? Do you find the running in Temple Run utterly boring? How about killing zombies in the repetitive Plants Versus Zombies? If you said yes to all these questions, then you’d better try out the following games on your PlayBook!
In this game, you have to make hamburgers, serve hungry customers and even customize your own burger recipe. This game is very exciting, because you have to do everything fast unless you want to lose customers and get low tips. Papa’s Burgeria is a one-player game that helps you hone those burger-making skills that you never knew you had. Try this game and you’ll be surprised that it’s so addictive.
DoodleBlast is a simple yet addictive and challenging game. Its simple graphic design challenges your logical skills and you just can’t stop playing it. The gameplay puts balls at the top of the screen in each challenge. You draw lines (a limited supply) so that the balls are directed into the bin. Although it sounds very easy, it is pretty difficult, and it gets harder and harder as you progress to higher levels.
This app is an interactive adventure/horror game. It is about an alien parasite that lands on Earth to spread terror to all living beings it encounters, especially humankind. In the game, you control the alien. It gets bigger and scarier with every successful move. Although the graphics look cute, it is not really for kids, because it has a lot of cartoon violence and gore. If you are the timid kind of person, you might find this game a little off.
Who doesn’t like Hangman? You can enjoy this classic word-guessing game on your PlayBook. Just like any other Hangman game, you can choose from a list of themes and subjects from which the words are generated. You can also set the level of difficulty, so you can challenge yourself more. Although the graphics are very simple, the gameplay is very easy to follow and its performance is fast and smooth. Moreover, the app is free to download.
Developed by Electronic Arts, this game app is based on the popular console game with the same name. However, it follows a new story under a new character named Vandal. The story is an expansion of the original game. Although Vandal is similar to the original Isaac Clarke, the former is more mysterious. To play, the player directs Vandal through the recesses of the Sprawl. Don’t expect it to be easy because you have to kill the terrifying Necromorphs along the way. This game feels like it was made for the PlayBook itself, because the controls are very smooth and intuitive.
The story goes that Canabalt is a world nearing its end. The user plays the only survivor and the character must run across the collapsing rooftops very quickly. Although the gameplay is very simple, it is still very addictive due to the tap-to-jump feature. It’s a free-running adrenaline app that can duel Temple Run. You will also enjoy its amazing soundtrack.
The last game app on our list is a point-and-click game. The story of this game is that a lone robot is out to save his robot girlfriend. If you are into steam punk graphics, you will find this game beautifully drawn. Even if you’re not into that kind of style, you will still find this game exciting and addicting.
So these are the game apps you can download to play on your PlayBook. Enjoy them and prove to non-BlackBerry device users that we can also have a lot of fun with the BlackBerry tablet!
