Arcade games were once the most popular gaming genre, though that was a long time ago. There are still tons of arcade games out there, but considering how much the gaming industry evolved, other gaming genres are far more popular these days. That being said, your smartphone is quite probably the most ideal device to play arcade games, well, basically all simple-to-play games, no matter in which genre they belong really. It just so happens that we’ve stumbled upon a rather interesting arcade game recently, and we’re here to tell you more about it, read on.
Now, the game we’re here to talk about is called ‘Barrier X’, and it’s quite probably a lot different than the games you’re used to. The graphics in this game is incredibly simple, but the gameplay, not so much. The Barrier X is incredibly simple to play, and yet really hard to master. Your goal is very simple, you need to avoid crashing the arrow which flies through space. Now, this might sound simple, but it isn’t, the speed in which this arrow moves is incredible, and even though the controls are simple, you’ll have a hard time avoiding obstacles until you get used to the game. You need to tap left to move left, and right to move right, it couldn’t be more simple. You need to last at least 30 seconds in a specific level in order to open up the next level, and you’ll need not to crash for at least 60 seconds in order to beat the level you’re currently playing. This really doesn’t sound like a hard task, but after you install the game you’ll understand why it isn’t simple. The game offer 7 endless levels your way, and the soundtrack (electronic music) is upbeat and quite appropriate for this game.
This is the first gaming title by the ‘PINKAPP’ studio, and even though it hasn’t been on the Google Play Store for long, it managed to become quite popular it seems. The Barrier X currently holds 4.6-star rating in the Google Play Store, and it is free to download and play. Do keep in mind that the in-app purchase model is included in this game, and it allows you to remove ads if you opt to do so, even though they’re not as intrusive as in some other games we’ve played recently.
