The gaming category that rules the Android market these days are the ones we call pick me up and play games. These games, as the name suggests are designed with one simple goal in mind: that the player will launch it, play it for a little while and then close the app. Most pick me up and play games are played for no more than half an hour at one time. Players play them usually when they’re waiting for something or traveling – when they have nothing better to do. As you have probably already guessed, this specific category of games is available in different genres including arcade games, action games, puzzle games and even strategy games. Since Android users have a lot of this sort of free time in their day, developers have been releasing lots of pick me up and plays recently. One such game that has found its way to the top of the Android Google Play Store is Crossy Road. Crossy Road is essentially an arcade game in which you have to maneuver your character (or animal to be exact) through busy streets without getting it run over and killed.
This game surpasses others in its category in that although it is a pick me up and play, players have been found spending hours and hours on it. Needless to say, it is a very addictive game and you would not want to start playing it if you have exams coming up. The game play is rather simple. You have to steer your chicken through the raging traffic. Crossy Road is an endless runner game similar to Subway Surfers and Temple Run. The character you pick must run through the traffic without bumping into cars, buses and other such vehicles. The game is very simple to play all you need to do is tap on the screen in different directions to navigate the animals safely.
As with any good game, Crossy Road has a villainous character too – the Eagle. The Eagle will sometimes swoop down on you to pick you up or if you are nimble enough, you might have the eagle get hit by a train, a bus or a car. The graphics of the game are really good despite being designed in an 8 bit model. All of the frames in the game are rendered in three dimensions and all objects of the game have been given stylish, personalized effects that give a really indulging and immersive feel to the game making the visuals very eye friendly. Many critics compare Crossy Road to Frogger but we have found that even though the basic concept of the game might be the same as Frogger, but if Crossy Road is a super charged clone which is no-less fun to play.
