Swipe Right on the Best Thirsty Mobile Games

first_imgStay on target It’s easy to look at our smartphone-saturated world and claim that the new technology is isolating people. All that time you spend staring at a rectangle that’s stealing your face could instead be used enjoying the world and connecting with other people. But that’s lazy criticism. If you actually look at what people are doing with mobile devices it’s usually finding new ways to enjoy the world or connect with people.And what better human connection is there than romance? Whether it’s forging a long-lasting, deep, loving commitment to another person or just acting out base animal instincts for one lustful night, people like to be together. And there are some great mobile games out there that let you virtually (or not) experience the joy of being with someone else.Find some protection and get in the mood for the best, thirstiest, mobile dating games.ReignsReigns takes the language of everyone’s favorite ego-booster Tinder and turns it into a game about actually being the most beloved person in the land. As ruler of a fantasy realm, players strategically swipe left or right on suggestions and see their kingdom flourish or fall into despair. Casual monarchy. Hook-up culture for kings. A sleeper hit, the game is getting a queen-centric sequel soon.Fire Emblem HeroesFire Emblem had always been a great series of strategy RPGs, but what really turned it into one of Nintendo’s most beloved worldwide franchises is when things got sexy. Fire Emblem: Awakening on the 3DS reinvented the series by letting you have the characters kiss and get married and have babies. There’s none of that in this mobile spin-off but it still has the layer of horniness that defines modern Fire Emblem. Pay some real money and pray you get a good anime sword wife.Hatoful BoyfriendDate a pigeon! Date a pigeon! Date a pigeon! Sure you can see the pigeons as cute anime teens instead, but why deprive yourself of the chance to tell a pigeon you love them and see them in their full, feathered, disturbingly realistic avian glory? With Hatoful Boyfriend on mobile, rest easy knowing you can always carry your bird boyfriend close to your heart.Kim Kardashian: HollywoodMore than just a cynical example of slapping a celebrity name on some product to make money (although it definitely also is that) Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is a neat little casual RPG about living the life of a powerful socialite. Along with earning fame and fortune through modeling and partying, players can also go on dates. But your precious time and celebrity energy aren’t infinite, so pick prospects wisely to find your Kanye.My Horse PrinceOnly in video games can you safely act on the fantasy of loving, truly loving, a horse. There have been countless stories about the special bonds between humanity and horses. That’s just what happens when you spend that much time riding something. But My Horse Prince dares to ask, what if I could just date the horse and whisper into his anime boy ears? Just pass me some carrots and call me Mr. Hands.Samurai Love BalladPlenty of video games have mined Japan’s dramatic Sengoku era for inspiration. Just look at all the games starring ambitious warlord Nobunaga Oda. But in Samurai Love Ballad, put away your swords and pucker up your lips for some hot history lessons. You play as a female waitress pretending to be a boy amongst your potential samurai mates, adding some steamy Mulan-esque tension.TinderI’m sure plenty of great, real, ongoing relationships have been created by Tinder. I hope so. But the ubiquitous dating app is totally a game. It actively encourages snap judgments of whether someone is just hot or not. Many only use it to get matches from strangers and feel better about themselves without ever actually meeting. And sometimes folks simply see it as a social shortcut, a way to quickly find a tour guide in another country. But however you use it, Tinder is by far the best, thirstiest mobile game.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
