Spending time in public transport is probably not one of the things you are looking forward to after the end of the pandemic lockdowns. Commuting is for most people one of those necessary parts of the working day that are neither productive nor relaxing. So it is best spent on something entertaining, but not too engaging, like listening to music or a podcast, scrolling through social media, reading an e-book or the news, and playing a mobile game.
Here is a list of 6 great mobile games to try out in your public transport. We promise they will speed up your commuting time.
A simple puzzle game, yet incredibly addictive. What you do in 2048 is that you swipe the blocks into each other to blend them together. This adds up their numbers, and the challenge is to reach the number 2048. Reaching this goal is complicated by the fact that all blocks slide together, which puts some of them in an unfavorable position. Also, the blocks respawn with every move, which sooner or later leads to the end of the game. This does not sound so entertaining? Why not give it a go and try attempting to beat your record.
In this game, the answer to the question ‘how did the chicken cross the road?’ is entirely in your hands. Namely, you control a chicken (or one of the other available characters) and guide it across a ceaseless series of roads and rivers while trying to avoid different obstacles. You can die by getting hit by a car or falling in a river. Not moving can also result in the game being over, as the chicken can get killed by an eagle. We promise that you will obsess over this game.
