Best Downloadable Games
Are you dreading a long car, bus or train journey? If so, the perfect antidote is to make sure you take along some of the best downloadable games that will help you blast through those hours of boredom. Not only will they pass the time, you will have a legitimate excuse to while away as many hours as you like on these extremely addictive games.
Plants versus Zombies
This wacky game now has a cult following, and if you haven’t played it already you can look forward to playing both version one and two. Why plants were chosen is not clear, but you will soon get sucked into the plant/zombie madness. On each new level you can look forward to unlocking new kinds of plant weapons that can defend against the ever expanding arsenal of zombies and their ingenious ways of attacking you.
This is a prettier looking take on classic tower defense games, in which the traditional castles, monsters or robots have been replaced with balloons and balloon popping devices. As you proceed through the game the poppers get more sophisticated – wheels of fire, ice towers and corrosive glue are needed to get through the thick skins of multi-layered bloons in later levels. Watch out for the lead balloons in particular. It’s not clear how lead balloons float but it’s fun to pop them nonetheless!
For something slightly different make sure you have an electronic version of boggle downloaded before you go anywhere. It’s very like the family board game version but you get more turns. Each time you race against the clock and you will be determined to beat your personal best!
