In an era where instant gratification reigns supreme, being able to distract yourself with media on the go, including portable games, is becoming essential to survival. Whether you refuse to be alone with your thoughts, are a serious gamer or are a parent looking to keep your kids busy while traveling (for example), portable video games will come in handy.

These video games on the go take a variety of formats. Some are gaming apps compatible with tablets or smartphones, such as comic book based games or shark attack apps.
