What To Play When Traveling

-

Traveling the world opens up the mind to a realm of new experiences, but it can also lead to boredom and a numb behind. For gamers, leaving the Xbox at home doesn’t mean you have to leave gaming behind, and this can make the more tedious parts of your trip of a lifetime more bearable. 

There are numerous alternatives to keep you entertained on the go, mostly in the form of games that can be played on your phone. It is no exaggeration to say that you have thousands of options here, so you can narrow these down by knowing which genres are the best for you.

Dip into the fantastical world of RPGs

You will probably already be aware of the ‘massively multiplayer’ type of this game, but many RPGs can be played in isolation on your phone whenever you want. They typically have an in-depth storyline, and you can progress through this by using strategy and puzzle-solving techniques. You probably associate role-playing games with consoles or PCs, but many have been adapted or created with the smaller screen in mind. These tend to follow the freemium model, where they are free to download and play, but you can enhance your game experience by buying extra resources or upgrades for your characters.

Take a look at online casino games

Another genre that is becoming more popular each day is that of online casino games. This is mostly because they provide excitement along with entertainment while also offering a huge range of choices when it comes to games. You’ll typically find that if you want to play online roulette in NZ or anywhere else for that matter, then the best casinos will have several different options available for you. These will include the standard video versions and live options where you play with a real-life croupier over a video feed for a more genuine experience. There are also plenty of slots available if that is more your thing, and you’ll find sporting-themed slots like WWE Legends or movie tie-ins like Terminator to keep you amused while the landscape whizzes by outside the window.

Start matching and merging

At the less cerebral end of the scale, there are the matching and merging games. You must have heard of Candy Crush in its various forms, where you match symbols to clear levels, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Matching games can also have a plot line running alongside it, where clearing a level will give you tokens for renovating a digital home or garden to your taste. Matching games involve a greater element of strategy as certain matches give you more resources than others but are still easy to pick up and put down when the need arises.

A few final thoughts

Traveling can present many trials, foremost amongst them the fact that you can’t take your Xbox with you. However, you can still play games as long as you have your phone and an interest in the genres on offer. If you like in-depth storylines and character building, then you could be suited to RPGs, or if you prefer something a little lower impact, then merging and matching could be more your style. On the other hand, online casino games like roulette could be the perfect match, providing the right balance between excitement and entertainment.
