The world of gaming has seen a lot of twists in turns. From the apocalyptic industry crash of 1983 to the advent of the smartphone, itâ€™s been quite the tumultuous journey. Now though, itâ€™s hard to picture a world without annual, multi-million-dollar gaming expos and unfettered access to historyâ€™s greatest games.
Simply put, you no longer need a $500 home console to enjoy a top tier gaming experience. If youâ€™re in need a little bit more proof, then you best start clicking. Today, we take a look at some of the best console-first video games that have migrated their way to your smartphone. Be warned though, your days of daily face-to-face social interaction are numbered.
World of Goo
World of Goo is as fun as the name suggests. Originally released on the Wii in 2008, World of Goo asks users to channel their inner mechanical engineer. Using tiny black balls of goo, youâ€™ll need to build sound bridges and towers in order to complete each level.
Itâ€™s fun, addictive, incredibly frustrating at times, and perfectly suited to the touchscreen controls of modern cell phones. And, for just $6.99 on iOS or the Google Play store, you can bring your goo with you anywhere.
