Play whenever you want along with your friends during Christmas.
The year 2020 has been one of the most significant years for mobile games, thanks to COVID-19. Not only competitive games, but also casual ones, saw a substantial spike in the active player base. Mobile games are developing at an enormous speed, and the ease and the mobility of the system are making it more widespread and if you want to enjoy these during the holidays, here is the list of top five mobile games that you should try:
Among Us is undoubtedly the highest trending game that we saw in 2020, regardless of the platform. The game is pretty simple and easy, and up to 10 players can play on a single server. One, two, or three of them will be imposters, and the rest of the players will be crewmates. While the crewmates need to complete the given tasks to win, imposters have to sabotage the missions or kill the others.
If the crewmates find out who the imposters are before they kill everyone, they win the game. The interactive and straightforward nature of the game made it popular among all the players globally. Among Us also won the ‘Mobile Game of the Year’ award in the Game Awards 2020. The game is available to download for free on both Android and iOS.
