BARRIER X

Barrier X is a reflex-based arcade game which despite being challenging is fun to play. The game’s perspective and use of camera separate it from the rest of its category. The camera effect makes the game harder to beat. The developers have really done a fabulous work with it.

Apart from the above, the game features 7 endless levels, electronic music and competitive leaderboards to challenge friends and players from all across the globe. Not to mention the uber fast gameplay which speeds up the game every 15 seconds. This game truly puts one’s reflexes at a test.

Overpainted

Overpainted is a formidable and active platformer. It shares a lot of DNA with the Steam game Ink. The concept behind this game is to put the player in a dark room where visibility is zero. This means the player won’t be able to see the obstacles. The only way to see them is by spray painting the obstacles. It involves logic as well as reflexes and is certainly challenging.

The game features 100 tough and colorful levels waiting to be spray painted. Apart from this the game also has frequent boss fights and two finger control mechanism. This game is definitely worth a shot.

Paper.io

If you have heard of slither.io then this game is nothing different from that. However, I personally prefer this over slither.io. The reason is the clean and sort of material interface and UI design. Not to mention the papery texture and design which is always welcome.

The main goal of this game is to capture the largest area or territory. The game feels easy in the beginning but as the captured area gets bigger the game becomes tougher. The rules are simple, first never touch your tail or you will be dead. Second, stealing of territories is legal. Finally, the third, the only way to outwit your opponent is by planning strategies and not by playing boldly or carefully.
