  • Fortnite
  • HQ Trivia
  • Alto’s Odyssey
  • NBA 2K19

Fortnite, which is the mobile version of Fortnite Battle Royale, is a massively popular app for gamers everywhere.

This zombie survival game app can either be played in teams or as a solo mission. The goal is to be the last one standing.

Players try to amass weapons and other supplies, while constructing shelters and fortifications on a deserted island.

Over the surface of this island, a certain portion of the land is marked out as safe. This safe area continues to shrink, forcing all players into a constantly narrowing region until only one player remains.

HQ Trivia

HQ is another iPhone game app that is growing rapidly in popularity. This live trivia app allows people to earn real prize money by competing against others for the correct answers to a series of multiple-choice questions.

HQ trivia features a live host that will explain the rules and get things rolling before the start of each competition.

You must answer each question correctly to move onto the next. If you get all the questions right, you are entitled to a cash prize.

Trivia games start at 9:00pm ET on weekdays, and 3:00pm ET on weekends.

Alto’s Odyssey

A follow up to the classic game app Alto’s Adventure, Alto’s Odyssey is fairly similar to the original.

The remarkable graphics and soothing soundtrack make this iPhone game app a fan favorite.

The basics of the game haven’t changed too much from Alto’s Adventure, players are still on a hunt to round up a roaming herd of llamas.

Some background scenes are new, and Alto will be both snowboarding and sandboarding down mountains in pursuit of precious llamas. The new wall riding feature adds some excitement.

If NBA basketball is your game, then NBA 2K19 is one of the best basketball simulation game apps out there.

The 2019 version offers a new story mode option, called MyCareer mode. This mode allows you to create a fictional player and then follow that player throughout an NBA career.

The “Way Back” storyline is about a cocky young baller that believes he is ready for the NBA but runs into roadblocks trying to advance his career.

Simple controls, responsive gameplay, and a fresh soundtrack make NBA 2K19 an excellent b-ball gaming option.
