38 Playful Gaming Apps

From Food Puzzle Apps to Rap-Inspired Gaming Apps

— June 11, 2015 — Naughty
Since smartphones, laptops and tablets have simply become part of our daily lives, we can easily incorporate playful gaming apps to add some fun to each day. Passing the time while waiting at an appointment or for public transit can be daunting but these playful gaming apps will help pass the time.

These apps allow users to play their favorite child games like the Mobile Nintendo Games app that brings Mario Kart directly to any smartphone. The apps can also be educational, which is the goal of the Gamified Eco app that allows users to track, record and learn about their individual carbon footprint.

Other apps incorporate classic board games and puzzles that allow users to virtually play other competitors. The ability to play these games without being around other people is a perk of the apps. These apps are a fun and educational way to pass time.
