Another nice option is to find some interesting apps that will entertain you. This is what we have done. Here is a list of the most exciting apps that will keep you busy during the time of quarantine.

Plants vs Zombies 2

This game is extremely popular, most gamers have played it at least one time. But if you haven’t, it’s high time you tried it.

The game itself is so addictive. Once you start, you can hardly stop, because there are so many levels and challenges. You can discover a huge number of locations as well.

This game requires building good tactics and long-term thinking. What you need to do is to protect your house from zombies. But you can not shoot them with a gun, that’s not how it happens in this game.

In the Dead 2

Imagine yourself being in the center of a huge and terrifying zombie apocalypse. Your main mission is to save your family. Do your best to survive.

However, this is not a simple shooter. Of course, you will have to protect yourself, but this is only one side of the game. What is really interesting is that there are 7 different endings. But it’s you who decides how the game is going to finish.

There are 60 interesting stages of the game. Each of them is extremely important for the ending you get.

This one of the most exciting and a bit terrifying gamer. Eyes is an indie horror, so what you need to do is to hide from a mysterious creature inside the house.

Another thing is that you also need to collect little purses in order to get out of the house. Keep an eye on the drawings on the walls. Should you see an image of an eye, tap on it. So you collect such eyes and then use them.

These eyes help you to see the location of a creature. In other words, you see the house through the eyes o this disturbing creature. This is why you can figure out its location easily.

And if you see yourself, it means that the disturbing creature is right in front of you. If you fail to hide from the monster, you lose.

We need to say that Eyes is a horror. Keep this in mind, especially if you are looking for a family game. We would not recommend you to play Eyes with children.

Eyes are available in App Store and Google Play.


RFS – Real Flight Simulator

Have you dreamed of being a pilot of an aircraft? You can try to do it right now. This is one of the most life-like simulators.

The more you play, the more locations and aircraft become available.

This game is really thrilling, as it gives you a kind of real-life experience. You can practice take-off, turns and landing. The control of the vehicle is on a top level as well.

There is an option of talking to other pilots while flying. It is vital for a safe flight, as contacting others can prevent you from crashing into another airplane while landing.

You can choose the type of weather: snow, wind or a sunny day. It will influence the flight, for sure.

In RFS you can make about 40.000 flights on a daily basis.

The cost of this amazing simulator is only 0.99$. This is the price of the download, not a subscription. 1$ and you will get an opportunity to fly in the sky. Sounds great, doesn’t it?

The game is available for Android and iOS.


Life is Strange

This is a story-based choice game. As you go through the story, you need to read the subtitles and pick one option that seems more or less logical and convenient for you.

Life is Strange totally corresponds with its name. When you choose an option you also choose the timeline of events that you will have to face. So every single decision matters.

You are in the center of a story about a student called Max. One he discovers that he has a gift (he can rewind time), his life completely changes. Now he can help people and save his friends using extraordinary abilities.

You can save or ruin your life just by one wrong turn. It sounds like real life though.

Unfortunately, the game is available for Android users only. It is free of charge.


Motor Depot

Another nice simulation, where you can test your driving skills. You can drive various types of vehicles: trucks, cars, CUVs and many others. More than 50 vehicles are available.

The control of the car is perfect – you will easily handle it. The most important thing is to react fast unless you do it, you will crash.

The game gives you the atmosphere of 2000-s. Motor Depot is different from most of the games of such a genre.

The app is available in Google Play Market only. Motor Depot costs about 1$.
