Welcome to 2017 everyone, and from the look of things, it appears to be a good year – better than the last. I have compiled a list of android games which you can play of course in the year 2017. These games are interesting and strictly Nigerian.
Have you ever played a game and wished it had a Nigerian feel? Maybe something you did in childhood that was fun and you’ll like to be reminded about. Or you just want to have that home feeling while playing the game? If you answer in the affirmative to any of these questions, you have to stay right here, then follow me.
1. NAIJA WHOT
Naija shot reminds us all of the “pick two”, “pick three”, “suspension” days. Those days when the card game “whot” was tremendously popular amongst all age groups. I could remember I was less than thirteen years old then and I was already playing the game.
I don’t know what inspired the game at this time to be transformed online but something tells me the overall reduction in people playing the game caused it. The game has been over rightly neglected by the entire populace. Everyone now spend time once expended playing whot to focus on their smartphones. Now, you can do both, isn’t that great?
2. SAMBISA ASSAULT
Well well, many might have their reservations about the game but to me, it is a very nice concept. I don’t need to introduce where sambisa is to you anymore as even my twelve year old younger sister knows it.
So in “sambisa assault”, You are the soldier on an elite team of military fighters tasked with taking out a dreaded terrorist organization. Your mission is simple, take out as many terrorists as possible and as you do so, you raise through the ranks.
Sambisa Assault is totally free to play but has some in-game items (such as bullet proof vests, bombs and other ammunition) for sale that enhance the gaming experience. Half the Proceeds made from the game goes to support victims of terrorism. It is produced by ChopUp games.
3. MONKEY POST
Firstly, let me take you back memory lane. Monkey post is a football game with its own peculiar style. Well, rules are usually adjusted as the players or gamblers deem fit for the occasion, so you can’t say it has a standard set of rules. The game can be played four-a-side, Five-a-side or six-a-side, depending on available space. Sometimes, stones are used to create goal posts, but there isn’t a goalkeeper.
Now to the game produced by ChopUp, it gives you an exact feel, or near-exact feel of the old times. ChopUp’s Monkey Post starts the player off with a newbie team and allows the player to customise the team name, logo, jersey etc. The player can then upgrade each team’s skills as they progress in the game. Users can earn ChopUp coins, upgrade their players, build their teams and take on the best teams to rank high on the leader board.
4. JAGUN; CLASH OF KINGDOMS
While “Jagun” means warrior in English, the game relects occurences before the forceful amalgamation of inhomogeneous regions of the “Niger area”, to form what is present day Nigeria. You belong to the Jagunlabi Kingdom, which has grown to become the most prosperous in the land. This arouses the envy of neighbouring kingdoms who have made up their mind to conquer you. It’s all up to you to protect Jagunlabi’s fortress from being compromised.
It is also developed by ChopUp mobile gaming platform.
So guys that’s it. Do you feel there’s any NIGERIAN developed game you’ve played and deserves this list? Let us know in the comments.
