Weekly Time Waster – ‘Open Panzer’

A few weeks ago, a coworker and I were talking about some old school strategy games we used to play on our computers. One of my favorites was “Axis and Allies;” you felt like a true military commander with that one. The next day, he showed me a game called “Open Panzer” and I immediately fell in love.

With over 10 million downloads on both the IOS and Android stores, I think it's time we talk about a game called “PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds: Mobile”. For short, we will call it “PUBG”. There has been a large amount of talk in the gaming world about “PUBG,” but what is it all about? Well, it's very similar to a game I covered a few months ago called “Fortnite,” but it is less complex in a way, yet somehow just as addicting.

Weekly Time Waster – ‘Hearthstone’

A long time ago, kids, teens and even adults alike would gather together to play card games, testing each other’s decks to see who built the best one or who could beat anyone who challenged them. However, we've seen physical card games begin to fade away. Being someone who used to be an avid card game player, I was recommended to check out a mobile card game, and man what a surprisingly fun time I've had. I present to you, “Hearthstone.”

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Tekken’

Oh “Tekken,” how you've entertained us for so many years.

After completing “Lapse” from last week, I felt like I needed another text-based adventure game to satisfy my need to waste time between life's daily happenings. This week's time waster is another text-adventure. I present to you - “The Great Tournament.”

In my quest to kill time, I like to try to find many types of games; however, one genre of games I never really forayed into is text-based adventure. So I thought I would give one a try.

This week's time waster is “Lapse: A Forgotten Future.”

One of my favorite board games as a kid was Battleship. Flip up your side of the board, place your ships as strategically as you can and hope for the best in a guessing game of “B12, hit or miss”. In an app store full of multiplayer games, I wondered what kind of Battleship-style games I could come across, and I stumbled upon a sweet action-packed game called “World of Warships Blitz.”

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Poppy Kart’

One game I will always hold dear to my heart is the original “Mario Kart” from the SNES and N64 platforms. Even if you never played the original, I'm sure you must be familiar with “Mario Kart” in general. Seeing as I don't have any working retro hardware anymore, I always wondered what was out there in the mobile market. Well, did I stumble upon a gem.

I present to you “Poppy Kart.”

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Prizefighters’

As someone who loves boxing movies such as the “Rocky” movies, “The Fighter,” “Million Dollar Baby” and more, I certainly became interested in watching a few boxing matches on TV as I grew up. I also love boxing games, and for what it's worth, I had a lot of fun with “Wii Boxing” years ago when that was a thing. So I thought to myself, what is out there on mobile?

Weekly Time Waster - ‘TheoTown’

I'm a huge fan of city-building games, specifically “Sim City.” I'd spend hours building different cities and watching the economy either flourish in some of them or tank into the depths of bankruptcy as residents riot outside of City Hall. My favorite “Sim City” game was “Sim City 2000” - and a small company just came out with a game that is basically a copy of that old-school game, but on the mobile platform.

I present to you “TheoTown.”
