We all have that desire to challenge one of our friends on a mobile game. There are hundreds of games out there which support multiplayer gaming, but most of them require internet or wireless connection to get the two devices connected. This is where we have to point out the difference between two players games and multiplayer games.
Defining the term of “two players games”, those are the games which allow two people to play (usually against each other) on the same device while splitting the screen up. In more simple words we get one device with two screens (split-screen). Multiplayer games now, are those games which are installed on both devices and let them communicate together (creating a server) in order to allow the two (or more) people play on the same server together.
Unfortunately the majority of two players games is owned by the “board” category. So if you are looking for a really exciting/adventurous two player game you’re in bad luck. However this fact is great for classic game lovers. There’s a massive variety of different games to choose from, however spotting those which are designed for two players or split screen can be really hard. So we’ve chosen the best ones to make your life easier.
Starting with a very classic one. No much to be told here, everyone knows chess. If you have never played it before this seems an ideal opportunity to learn it.
