Top 3 Mobile HTML5-based Games For Your Smartphone

HTML5 has indeed made quite a mark on the mobile world, developers are increasingly using this platform to create and develop some real mind blowing games and applications for smartphones and tablet devices. I will review 3 amazing HTML5 games that are very much compatible with an iPhone or anyother smartphone having an HTML5 compatible browser.

A tip for iPhone users, if you want to play these HTML5 games on full screen then all you have to do is hit Safari browser middle button and choose the option Add to Homescreen and you will see the entire game on a full-screen mode. Have a brief look on these games after a break!

Nano Tanks

Ever played or heard about Pocket tanks, if yes then Nano Tank is another gaming gem that you will adore. Basically it’s a 2D shooting game in which you take out your enemies while avoiding incoming fire and obstacles. You will find it a bit difficult to play in iPhone’s Safari environment, so I will suggest you to convert to full screen mode. Nano Tanks employs real-time combat skills with highly responsive controls, you have to set your angle to take a perfect shot but you can maneuver you tank as well.

 

Lazors

Simple yet interesting, I found Lazors to be a very interesting game with some really challenging levels. There are a total of 30 levels and in each level you will find tangled lasers that are shown in red and Orange color. All you have to do is untangled the laser and once you are done the laser will change its color to green. Once you untangle all the lasers the level will be complete and you can proceed to next level having a higher difficulty level. You will require skills to complete higher levels in Lazors because gameplay will start getting difficult.

Spy Chase

Lastly I am including Spy Chase which is basically a racing game with a touch of the past. You have to avoid cars, collect power increasing goodies and avoid obstacles while racing with your targets. You will go faster if you will collect more power-ups and eventually you can catch your rivals quickly. Shooting is by default so all you need to worry about is dashing your car around the track and reach finish line. Spy Chase can be downloaded from developer’s official website.

I tried out all of these games and simply loved them, I recommend that you should definitely give a try to these games and I can bet you will love the gameplay.
