Fun and unique gaming Apps to try in 2021


Gaming apps represent nearly a third of all applications available on both the Apple Store and Google’s Play Store. That’s a lot of choice and a deeply saturated market place which can make it difficult to know just which ones are worthwhile engaging with. There are many factors to consider when evaluating a good game, from performance and overall quality of finish to graphics fidelity. The most important thing to consider, however, is how well it plays and whether it offers something similar titles do not. Have a look at these gaming Apps to try in 2021 below, all of which manage to do something refreshingly unique and have been recognized and embraced by the gaming community for it.

Among Us

Among Us was the breakaway viral sensation in the gaming world in 2020. Assume the role of an astronaut on a spaceship with your crew of other players and complete routine tasks aboard the vessel while simultaneously solving an unfolding murder mystery. One player is secretly designated as the imposter and has to use subterfuge, deception and strategy to discreetly kill off the other players and sabotage the ship all while deflecting suspicion. It’s a unique experience and one that is best enjoyed with a party of friends where the hilarity of accusing one another of murder most foul has the greatest potency. Available on iOS, Android, Windows and recently ported to the Nintendo Switch, come see why Among Us has racked up 42 million downloads to date.

9 Masks of Fire

Sometimes the best options for gameplay are the classics. Slot games are a great category to explore if you’re looking for something fun, quick and satisfying. Titles such as the 9 masks slot game utilise all the best elements of your favourite land-based experience with slots and, as the game is available on mobile platforms, offer it all in a convenient, easily accessible way. 9 Masks of Fire separates itself from the pack with its tribal, jungle aesthetic that places mysterious tribal masks among the usual suspects of 7s, BARs and Cherries in its 5-reel, 20 payline video slot. Couple that with an engaging rhythmic soundtrack to accompany your play and you’ve got a brilliant modern twist on a gaming stalwart.


In late 2019 Google unveiled their entry into the gaming space with Stadia. What distinguishes this platform from the likes of the Xbox Series X and the Playstation 5 is the lack of physical hardware. This is because Stadia utilises remote servers in order to run the latest triple A games. This means all you need to get going is a web browser, a stable internet connection and a compatible gaming controller. Stadia can be played on your computer, your smart devices, or your TV, making it super flexible and easy to dive into it. With a growing library of games such as DiRT, Destiny 2 and blockbuster hit Cyberpunk 2077 all ready for you to pick up and play, Stadia is a no brainer for those seeking a big budget gaming experience at a fraction of the cost.


Epic Games’ Fortnite is a worldwide sensation with over 350 million active players competing in this cartoonish battle royale shooter. You play as one of 100 players who parachute onto an island arena and proceed to duke it out until the last survivor is crowned the winner. With its quirky visual humour, innovative fort building mechanics and frequent map and content refreshes, it’s easy to see why this title, originally released back in 2017, is still going strong and has a loyal fanbase. Check it out on Windows, macOS, Switch, Playstation 4 and 5, Xbox One X/S, iOS or Android.
