Best games to play during quarantine

I have always been a person who loved playing video games. From the first time I picked up a GameBoy I was in love. As I got older my interest in video games has transferred into apps on my phone. As of today I have 103 apps on my iPhone, more than half of them are games.

I have always loved playing different games on my phone, but since I’ve been at home these past couple of weeks, I have had even more time to play games on my phone.

Here are some of my favorites


Rating: 10/10

This is probably one of my favorite games on my phone. In BitLife, you create a character and you can customize their whole life. You can choose your chapters career, how many children they have and more. In the months that I’ve been playing the game, I’ve gotten tons of friends to play it to. The best part of the game is that it gets updated almost every week. Each week the creators of the app add new things that your character can do. This past week included the addition of running for public office as a choice of a career. As long as this game keeps getting updated I will continue to play.

Pros: There are endless posiiablities when it comes to creating your character’s life.

Cons: It costs money to get full access of the game.

Design Home

Rating: 10/10

I grew up watching design and home improvement shows on HGTV with my nana. So I was bound to get this game eventually. Design Home is a competition game in which you design rooms in order to get a high score. It took me a while to get into the game but once I did I was hooked. In the game you are given a room in a house. Each room has a design theme and some certain brands of furniture styles that you are required to use. As I got the hang of the game I was obsessed with designing the best rooms and getting the highest score. For an added bonus I recommend linking the game to your Facebook account so that you can play against your friends.

Pros: It’s relaxing and can give you design ideas for your own home.

Cons: If you design a lot of rooms during the day, you may have to wait a couple of hours to design a new room.

Genies and Gems

Rating: 8.5/10

I have been playing this game for years. The game goes along with the same premise of Bejeweled but it has it’s own twist. Each level has a different mission, so although you are just swiping gems there are other things you have to accomplish to get to the next level.

Pros: If you link the game to your Facebook you can continue to keep your progress on any device.

Cons: Some of the levels are really hard to get through.

Draw It

Rating: 9/10

Draw It is basically Pictonary in app form. In the game you are given a work and you then have to draw it. The main appeal is getting as may drawings right as you can, while playing against three other people. As the game continues you can collect points and buy different work packs to use in future rounds.

Pros: If you play the game enough you can figure out the easiest way to get the most pictures per round.

Cons: The game can get a little redundant if you play it for a long period of time.

Pin Out

Rating: 9/10

If you miss the days of playing pinball on your family’s computer, this is the game for you. Pin Out is a multi-leveled pinball game. Each level is timed as you continue on you can get more time added to your level. This game supplies endless fun and gives you a personal pinball machine in the palm of your hand.

Pros: It’s very user friendly and easy

Cons: None

These are just a few of my favorite games, I’ll continue to add to this as I find something new.
