As a case in point, Toy Crush has a stellar 4.5/5 rating from 9,037 reviewers. As the number of reviewers increases, so too does the credibility of the overall score.

Downloading an App is Not the Only Way to Play with Your Phone

January 15th, 2018 - Filed under Gaming

It’s a story as old as the first iPhone itself: boy meets phone, boy falls for phone, boy buys the phone and installs the first game on it within a week. The way you can play games on your smartphone has stayed pretty much the same over the last decade – downloading native smartphone apps from your app marketplace of choice, installing them on your device, and running them when and as you see fit.

Virtual Reality and Video Games: An Inevitable Merger

September 23rd, 2016 - Filed under Gaming

Video games have been around for quite some time. The first video game was actually created in 1958, and it was a simple tennis game not unlike Pong of the 1970s. In the 58 years since then, video games have grown exponentially more complex, to the point entire universes are simulated with multitudes of players occupying the same digital space simultaneously.

Pokémon Go: 20 Most Common Problems and Fixes

August 15th, 2016 - Filed under Gaming

Pokémon Go is a game to be enjoyed at your leisure time. I could not enjoy the game to its fullest when it came out, i.e. glued to my mobile screen eight hours a day. I had work, and then when I got home tired, despite not having much energy to walk around moving my cell phone like an antenna of an old TV or radio searching for signals, I nonetheless was excited enough to devote enough time to it. I caught a lot of Pokémon just on my commute to work and back home. But I’m not fortunate enough to have PokéStops directly, I have to actually get up and GO.
