These days, with internet involved in most of the stuff we do, even doing something as simple as catching fun and playing games without being online is becoming increasingly difficult most especially for the users of the iOS devices. This could be really frustrating at times because we can’t ALWAYS be connected to the internet most especially here in Naija where it is near impossible to stay connected on the go. High data tariff and poor network coverage from our service providers are the order of the day.
But luckily, some developers have a good insight into this problem and are providing more apps and games that can be played without an internet connection. And it is from this that another little problem arose. It is the issue of deciding which of these offline games that are continuously turned out on the Appstore is actually worth your several megabytes of data that will be used to download them.
Hence, we took it upon ourself here on Naijaknowhow to help make a selection of some of the most popular offline iOS games that are actually worth playing on our iPhone or iPad. Have fun on the go! play anywhere, anytime!
