Retro Gaming the Smart[phone] Way…..

In our office it’s easy to spot the My Little Pony fan because she’s wearing a ‘Daddy I want a pony’ hoodie or the office geek because he’s wearing the latest Big Bang Theory t-shirt and our gamer t-shirts are being sported by our in-house Xbox addicts and Playstation junkies. But even with these very different fans occupying our office space every so often theres something that causes the office to act like crazed lunatics, the latest smartphone game.

With smartphones being all-the-rage in our office its meant that we could battle over Angry Birds, puzzle over Word Press and tactle Tap the Frog. Although these popular games cause commotions and comradery, there’s some games we just keep coming back to for settling arguments. Here’s the top 3 retro smartphone games to keep rivalry rife in the office…..

Snake – Due to the average age in Truffle Towers being 30 we don’t really remember the original 70s release of this infamous game so this one takes us back to those ‘First Mobile Phone’ days of the Nokia 6110 and the argument with your mates about how long your worm is (ooh matron) and the best technique as not to bite your own tail. Everyone’s an expert at this game…..
