What's on my iPad


If there is one thing I love just as much as blogging is playing games. I find it so relaxing and there is nothing else I want to do when I'm on my lunch break or when I'm chilling on the couch. I just get so addictive and proud when I hit my achievements in the game. I have to admit I have not ventured into computer games as Mac computers are rubbish for gaming so I just stick to apps on my iPad. Below are a three of my favourite games at the moment. You will see a pattern of what I like- games which require to either build a farm, battle ground or city.

HayDay

HayDay

This is the oldest game I have played on. I have been on and off it for two years but I simply love how nothing can ruin or destroy your farm. It is always happy in HayDay where your only stress is waiting for your cakes to cook before your boat leaves!
It is a free to install but there are in game purchases however to be honest I have been fine without purchasing anything. The aim of the game is to build a working farm and complete boat orders, truck orders, derby tasks and village orders.
You can play solo or you can join a neighbourhood. Without joining a neighbourhood you unfortunately cannot participate in the derby. The derby is where the neighbourhood get together to complete tasks to win prizes but you are competing against other neighbourhoods to get in the top three places in the race. There are loads of lovely neighbourhoods in HayDay so finding one for you will not be hard.
There is not just a farm to take care of. You have a fishing area and a town centre. The fishing areas allows you to fish (as your would expect), cook lobster (of course in HayDay the lobster don't actually die) and 'groom' ducks for their feathers. The village is where you have different shops and have to complete each customers order to win prizes and gain experience points.
I love this game but it can be slow paced and the best way to level up is simply through playing it heaps as there is no real skill involved in it however if you want a play that is relaxing and you can come back to at any time then I highly recommend this one!

ClashofClans

Clash of Clans

I saw this game advertised on television and saw it was the same makers of HayDay so I had to give it go. I'm glad I did because I really look forward to getting the chance to play this. The aim is to build an amazing defence base and to attack other bases to gain trophies. You can join a clan as well which allows you to enter the war where you play against other clans for loot. It took me awhile to understand the war aspect but it seems to me that you have own own base to build (usually it's just the same as your main game base) and just attack the enemy bases but you are apart of your clan team so you all have to collectively win. The best part of the game I think is being able to re-watch people attacking your base. Recently its all higher levels who have been attacking mine so unfortunately I have been losing but my attacks have been keeping my trophies even. I haven't been playing this game for long but so far it's a game that I keep returning too.

simcity

SimCity Build it

This is a really new game to me but I know I love it already. It is created by the same people for The Sims but instead you build a city rather than a Sims life. The aim is to make all the people in your city happy so they pay you higher taxes. As you progress in the level you unlock different city needs like schools and police stations. When I started playing I didn't have enough fire stations so had an whole apartment building burn down! Sims also leave if the there are too many traffic jams so you have to update the roads every so often. To gain coins you need to upgrade resident building by creating building items in the factories. You have to be careful where you build certain buildings as your residents hate living next to e.g. a sewer or coal factory. One down side to the game is that you run out of things to do quickly so you can't play it for hours on end cause you have to wait for things to be built but what I do is that I flick between this and the other other games so I can spend a good hour playing them all!

I'm interested to know what games you like to play?!

  1. Sim City is great but I do agree things take a while to get going, I have lots of houses on mine and that's about it!
