8 Mobile Games for Kpop Fans
By Jerica Chingcuangco
You’ve watched music videos and listened to the newest releases of your favorite KPop artists. It’s another few hours/days before you can watch their latest music performances and even more before fansubs of their guest TV show appearances come out. Or worse, your faves have just finished their recent round of promos and are on hiatus. However, will you spend your precious time? Well, how about playing a game or two?
8. BTS Crush
After taking the world and Kris Aquino by storm, who doesn’t know BTS?
BTS Crush uses cute fanart to represent the Bangtan Boys as game tiles. To play, simply clear the puzzle by matching three images. Match tiles to get combos, and power up with BTS boosters! The game has over 100 levels, a perfect way to kill time.
7. Guess The KPop Song
Following the 4 Pics 1 Word format, Guess the KPop Song shows four photos: a logo associated with a Kpop artist, a few words of lyrics, a photo of one of the artists’ costumes for that particular song promotion (#mejointense), and a background resembling the song’s MV.
6. SNSD 10/10 Game
If puzzles are more your style, check out this game. SNSD 10/10 Game features fanart of the original nine SNSD (Girl’s Generation) members as tiles. To play, simply arrange the squares in 10×10 grids to clear a level. The catch? The squares appear in random patterns.
Also available: BTS 10/10 Game, EXO 10/10 Game, GoT7 10/10 Game all from SnakingStudio.
