Top 10 Games to Keep you Merry & Cosy Over the Holiday Season

We put together a list of the top games in 2017. The best way to finish this awesome year for GameAnalytics and our developers.

Aldo is passionate about Digital Marketing, conversions and analytics is his bread and butter. He loves to play basketball and you can find him cycling around London, during commute!

Christmas trees, decorations, presents, food, holidays, time off, drinks, family, friends. Stop. Start again. The holiday season is at the door and all the magic (and stress) captures everyone for 2 weeks. It’s also a time where you can find an opportunity to do things that you do much less the rest of the year; playing games is one of them!

2017 has been a great year for GameAnalytics, team growth, product improvements and a lot of new amazing games that have used our tool and reached some record numbers.

The list is pretty long, and it wasn’t an easy choice, but here’s a list of our top 10 favourite games that we’ve enjoyed playing over the past year (and even longer for some!).

I hope it helps with the Xmas dinner hangover…

10. Idle Miner Tycoon

Developed by Fluffy Fairy Games

OK. Christmas is your time off – you probably don’t want to hear about any kind of work. Despite that, building your own mining empire could be a lot of fun!

This hit game by our Finnish friends has thousands of positive reviews on both iOS and Google Play stores. Time to get your hands dirty from your sofa.

9. Basketball FRVR

Developed by FRVR

If you like to keep practising your basketball skills on a sleepy Boxing Day, this is best (and warmest) way to do just that. FRVR has released many hit titles over the last year, but Basketball FRVR is definitely our favourite. Simple, polished and addictive. .

A simple and engaging interface and one basic goal, keep making those hoops!

8. Zombie Gunship

Developed by Limbic

It’s Zombie-Apocalypse time and you need to save the world using your heavily-armed AC-130 ground attack aircraft. That sounds amazing, and it is!

A really enjoyable gaming experience and a fairly new addition to the genre that gives you a boost of adrenaline – even in the first levels.

1.  Snake vs Block

Developed by Voodoo

And finally the number one. Or the number 1s I’d say!

It’s been an incredible 2017 for Voodoo games “hits machine” and it wasn’t easy for us to choose one of their beauties for this Holiday ranking.

Snake VS Block is probably my personal favourite. It’s a smooth and engaging experience that will definitely keep you entertained for each and every play.

We look forward to seeing the next hit from Voodoo!
