The Best Games For Nerds

by James Smith


Most people right now are opting to play games on their smartphone over everything else. This is largely down to the fact that everyone takes their smartphones everywhere with them and spend a lot of their spare time, be it on their daily commute or their lunch break, using them. The lines between video games and mobile games are also becoming increasingly blurred, thanks to the advancements in technology and you could say that apps really provide a top gaming experience comparable to that on consoles and PC.

There are thousands of gaming apps out on the market right now for both iOS and Android based devices but which are geared for those who are a bit nerdy at heart? Let’s take a look at some of the best:

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft isn’t just one of the most popular nerdy games, it’s one of the most popular mobile games full stop. It’s similar in some ways to Pokemon as it’s a collectible card game (CCG) where players build a deck and then go up against others using it. It’s a supremely tactical game that is a multiplayer masterclass and it’s also gone on to become a huge eSports game too.


When Minecraft hit the market, it instantly became a hit and has surpassed expectations on PC, console and now mobile. It’s comfortably as good on mobile as it is on any other platform with players basically being entered into a huge open world where they must mine, build and fight, amongst other things. The game is constantly updated too, so the content is always fresh.

Pokemon Go

July 2016 saw the arrival of Pokémon Go and it’s quite comfortably going to go down in history as one of the best mobile games of all time. It made Pokémon mainstream again, with everyone’s inner nerd rising to the fore; but it also managed to mix it with the outside world through the use of augmented reality. Players can catch Pokémon in an attempt to collect them all in a real life environment. Creators Niantic are always adding new Pokémon into the mix too, as well as special events.

Unibet Online Casino

While playing for fun is great, some of us prefer to game with a chance of winning money. The Unibet casino app is one of the finest around when it comes to table games, slots and lice casino services. Players can enjoy a truly authentic casino experience wherever they are and Unibet put on some great offers and promotions too. So if poker, roulette, blackjack or slot games are more your thing, this is the app for you.

Rollercoaster Tycoon

Most players will have heard of Rollercoaster Tycoon and they’ll most likely have played this classic title on the PC a few years ago. It’s a simulation game where players simply have to build a theme park and everything that goes with it. The aim is to keep the customers rolling in and to keep expanding the park. It was a hugely successful game on PC and is popular as a mobile title too. There is also extra content which players can purchase in app.
