Welcome to the world of video games! We’re glad you’re here. In this post, we’ll show you some of the most addictive games ever made. We’ll explain how these games became so addictive and everything else you need to know about them. So sit back and get comfortable! We’re about to demystify the fun and exciting world of video games.
Minecraft is a sandbox video game created by Swedish game designer Markus “Notch” Persson, and later fully developed and published by Mojang. In the game, players build with a variety of different blocks in a 3D procedurally generated world, requiring creativity from players. Other activities in the game include exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and combat. The PC version of Minecraft consists of multiple gameplay modes: survival mode where players have to gather resources and maintain their health; creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build with; adventure mode where players play custom maps created by other players; spectator mode where one can freely move throughout the world without being affected by gravity or causing destruction to blocks or entities; hardcore mode which is similar to survival but with permadeath (meaning if you die in this mode you cannot continue playing).
In addition to PC versions of Minecraft, there are also versions for mobile devices (iOS & Android) as well as consoles such as Xbox 360 & Xbox One
The game was released in 2009 as a mobile application for the iPhone and iPad. The app has been downloaded over 1 billion times and since then, over 3 billion minutes have been spent playing it. Over 500 million levels have been played, with over 3 billion birds launched at pigs and an average of 10 billion pigs killed by each bird.
The addictive nature of the game is apparent from its massive popularity, with the game having over 100 million hours played by players around the world. Over 1 million new levels have also been created by fans using the level editor built into Angry Birds’ website.
Pokémon Go is a mobile game developed by Niantic, in which players use a smartphone app to capture, battle and train virtual creatures called Pokémon. The game is a mashup of real-world locations and Pokémon characters.
The game was released in July 2016 on iOS and Android devices. It became a worldwide phenomenon shortly after its release, breaking several records for being the fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion (including revenue from in-app purchases).
Pokémon Go is currently available to download on Google Play or the App Store
Pac-Man was originally released in 1980, created by Toru Iwatani. The game is a maze game in which the player controls Pac-Man through a maze consisting of four rooms connected to a center area. The object of the game is to score as many points as possible by eating all of the wafers (or “pac-dots”) while avoiding the ghosts that roam around the maze. Each level has four dots, with one dot in each corner and two dots in between those corners. When you eat all four of them on one level, you get ten thousand points for your efforts! The name “Puck-Man” came from Puck magazine (a Japanese publication), which had published an article about an arcade machine called “Hoppy,” about how it made money for its operators (and not so much for its customers). In 1981, Namco decided that “Puck” wasn’t a very exciting name for their iconic character and changed it accordingly!
In 1985, Soviet engineer Alexey Pajitnov invented a game called Tetris. The game was originally designed to be a teaching tool for math and geometry, but it quickly became so popular that it’s estimated to have been played by over two billion people. Tetris is one of the most addictive games ever made—and if you’ve never played it before, then you’re in luck! Today we’ll explore its history and discuss why this classic game has become such a hit with gamers around the world.

To help you out there are power ups available that will clear all of a certain type of candy or give you extra moves when you’re running low!
