Three Great Arcade Apps to Try in 2017
Although there’s always an endless series of great social media apps to try out, sometimes we just want to keep it old-school and kick back with some classic arcade games.
So here’s a look at some great updates of classic arcade styles in 2017 that could reintroduce you to the fun of platforming, the thrill of a casino win, and with the excitement of the racetrack.
Super Mario Run: Platforming Fun
One of the biggest gaming hits at the end of last year was the arrival of Super Mario Run to our mobile devices. This was Nintendo’s first major entry into gaming apps, and it quickly achieved some remarkable sales figures, as gamers flocked to try out the fun of a Mario platform title on a smartphone.
What really made Super Mario Run succeed was the clever way that the instantly recognizable arcade platforming format was cleverly updated for the touchscreen, thanks to some simple swipe-able controls. Although the app is currently only available for iOS devices, it’s expected to get its Android release in March and will become one of the biggest mobile games of all time.
Mr. Smith Casino Slots and Table Games
Casino games have been one of the surprise success stories of mobile gaming in recent years. And if you’re looking to see how this has happened, then simply head over to MrSmithCasino and check out the jackpots on offer on their slots games.
With jackpots frequently running into seven figures and a massive range of slots styles and looks to choose from, it shows just how diverse the casino gaming scene has become recently. And what’s best is that both the website and app feature some classic table live games, like roulette and blackjack that can put a real casino experience in the palm of your hand.
Horizon Chase: World Tour Racing Excellence
And finally, for anyone who grew up on classic racing arcade games like Out Run, then Horizon Chase: World Tour offers a great way to revisit this much-loved genre.
Thankfully, the developers have stayed true to the original arcade inspiration as the stylish retro graphics and 2D scrolling backgrounds are matched by the simple controls of steering, gas, and nitro to ensure that things never get too tedious.
And while it lacks the multiplayer options found in some of the live casino games, it’s got just enough retro charm to ensure that it becomes one of the great modern gaming apps.
