Gaming has evolved substantially over the years. You aren’t relegated to playing a game on just one console or needing a memory card if you want to play it at a friend’s house. Now, most games allow you to transfer your progress from one system to another and even play with friends on a different system.
That goes for mobile games, as well as console and PC titles. There are quite a few mobile titles that have been released on other systems. You can pick up the game right where you left off on your mobile or play against others no matter what system they are using.
Hearthstone is a free-to-play digital card game by Blizzard. Its cards invoke the lore of the Warcraft series and were originally released on Windows and macOS in 2014, but shortly after that, iOS and Android versions became available.
The turn-based game has you build a deck of 30 cards and choose a hero with a unique power, but you have to play your cards wisely, as you have a select amount of mana to use each turn. May the best player win.
Roblox is a massive game that has games within it. You can find action titles, first-person shooters, roleplaying games, and even collection games all inside of Roblox itself.
