Best Games For Google Plus

- - No comments
In our earlier posts, we've already taught you almost everything that there is to know about Google Plus. The search giant’s venture into social media has, as predicted, turned out to be quite a profitable investment. Though not a complete Facebook-killer (yet?) but it is still a platform that cannot simply be ignored. With a look slightly similar to the once popular Friendfeed, Google Plus has burst into the limelight with its simple interface, tight integration with other Google services, and lot of celebrity presence.

Coming to the inevitable comparison with the dominant Facebook, Google Plus has brought along almost all the major features the Zuckerberg-owned company has been boasting of for so long. One of the most important of these changes has been the introduction of gaming, which, Google hopes will pull more users towards its nascent social network. So, if you too have joined G+ due to the huge amount of games it provides, or if you’re just a Plussie interested in gaming, here are some of the best Google Plus games out there.

Angry Birds

Quite simply one of the most popular mobile games of all time, Angry Birds has managed to enthrall its audience across all ages. Initially available only on mobile devices, its immense popularity has made the bird-chucking adventure available across all platforms, including our beloved Google Plus.


Set in year 2711, this sci-fi strategy game will keep you hooked for hours. You start off by building a base and raising your army. Once you’re strong enough to fight, you demonstrate your prowess by attacking other players’ bases. But hey, don’t jump the gun just yet, as you too may get attacked sooner or later. And remember, if the attack is heavy, you’ll have to start from scratch once that happens.

Tips: Search on YouTube for some legit tricks that’ll help you find weaknesses in opponents and farm resources. Also, try and make sure NOT to attack members of your own clan.


CityVille is a game about creating and managing your own city. You, being the owner of the city, are responsible of growing crops, supplying goods, collecting rents, and expanding your businesses. If you get stuck, though, always feel free to ask for a little help from your friends.

Shadow Fight

If challenging your friends to a scrabble game is not your cup of tea, then perhaps it’s time for something with a little more action. Shadow Fight is an amazing game that lets you fight with your friends like a true ninja. With easy-to-learn controls and nice graphics, the game keeps you battling your friends for hours.

Crime City

Becoming a mafia without getting arrested is not that easy to achieve. However, on the Internet, anything is possible, and so it is with Crime City. In the game, you start off as a fledgling criminal who advances his or her way through the crime world by beating up people, robbing people, and doing almost anything that gets you arrested in real life. With the money that comes from these activities, you can upgrade your hood and keep increasing your income.

Bejeweled Blitz

Bejeweled Blitz is an award-winning game that gives you 60 seconds to match as many gems as possible. Though the game is quite simple, the added boosters and power-ups make it quite an addictive time-waster.

City of Wonder

While CityVille lets you create a modern bustling city without leaving the comfort of your bedroom, City of Wonder is a game that allows you to build and progress your civilization from Stone Age to the modern era.

GT Racing: Motor Academy

Crave speed? Then GT Racing is a game you’ll love to play for hours. One of the most graphically advanced games on the G+ platform, GT Racing lets you start your own racing career without leaving your house. The game includes cars from 26 different manufacturers including Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, and yes, there’s Ferrari too! Though free-to-play for all, the game has slightly higher requirements when compared to other titles in this genre. It is advised to have at least 2 GB of RAM and a video card with 512 MB memory.
