Mobile games have become true video games and have created their own culture. Today we take a look at the best smartphone games of 2020.
Mario kart tour
Nintendo hasn’t given much attention to mobile gaming, focusing more on its own Switch. Unsurprisingly, but rather annoying for many gamers. However, Mario Kart Tour still appeared in a version for Apple and Android smartphones. Despite the presence of microtransactions, without which, we must admit, no free-to-play game is complete, Mario Kart Tour is still very exciting and incredibly enjoyable to play. Especially when you consider that online you can race with your friends.
Of course, the Kart Tour doesn’t match the quality of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Switch, but it is not inferior to other games. And most importantly, Nintendo manages to keep the same classic familiar style of games in the series, which its fans love so much.
The game, as we said, is free, although you can additionally purchase in-game currency.
