It has been a while since you had to rely on a console to play a high-tech game. Nowadays, you can find incredible games that can work on smartphones and tablets pretty well. Of course, they won’t come with all the graphics and your device won’t have the same capacity to process complex adventures, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t get hook up and have lots of fun.
And Hollywood knows how hard we fall for our movies and have used games to promote their films and to keep monetizing them years after their release. And if you are one of those who loves to play games based on movies, here are five of them that you need to try on your mobile device.
Best Mobile Games: Minions Paradise
If you are missing those friendly faces from “Despicable Me” franchise, you should try “Minions Paradise” by Electronic Arts. On this game, you can help Phil on his mission to transform an island on the best place to live with his friends. It comes with several adventures, from throwing mangoes from hot air balloons to finish Professor Flux’s Master plan so that you won’t get bored.
Your goal on “Minions Paradise” is to win money, resources, and credits so you can expand and perfect your territory.

Best Mobile Games: Independence Day – Extinction
It has been 20 years since the aliens tried to conquer our planet and exploded the White House and that the president of The United States called the world to fight them.
