AirConsole is a one-of-its-kind game console. Yes, you heard it right — it’s not a game but a multiplayer online game console. What’s unique? You only require a computer screen and a few smartphones to play games on this console. It runs the games in your browser, and you can play them using smartphones.
AirConsole offers more than a hundred games, which one can enjoy with one’s family and friends. Since this game console runs directly in the browser, you can cast it by running it in Google Chrome and selecting Cast from its options. Then, just connect your smartphones, choose a game and enjoy the gameplay.
Last but not least, it is easy to connect with friends as well. It provides a joining code which you need to enter to join your game — just tell this code to your friends. However, you need a fast web connection to avoid delays or lags.
Just Dance Now is a dancing game for the dancer in you. You can dance and enjoy with your friends and family members on your favorite songs. It offers an amazing list of songs including Despacito, Naughty Girl, Swish Swish, and many more — totaling to 400+ songs with more songs added each month.
What I most liked is, one can have a social party with an almost unlimited number of friends (or players) with Just Dance Now. That’s not all — you get access to choreographies, so one can’t make an excuse to avoid dancing with you. After all, a party is incomplete without hit songs and dance moves.
Yokee is one of the best karaoke apps that allows you and your friends to sing your favorite songs. It provides the lyrics as well as the music to help you sing your heart out. What do I like more? It provides superb audio and video effects that help you to make your own videos and share them with others as well.
Yokee offers an endless collection of songs in various genres and languages. It offers a million songs including some of the top songs like Despacito, Let It Go, Single Ladies, etc. Since it does not feature a native cast feature, you can cast your phone’s screen using its quick tile, and everyone can sing the karaoke.
RISK is a global domination game where you defend your territories, draft troops, and trigger attacks for dominating the world. What I most liked is, it has multiple game modes: single player, online multiplayer, and pass and play as well. It is the last mode which allows you to cast and play it with others.
The game offers numerous maps including our classic world map, and you get to choose any one of the catchy avatars. I especially liked the pirate avatars, but you may choose per your liking. Its pass and play mode works best to enjoy a match for domination with friends or family members. Don’t you think?
Angry Birds Go! is a kart racing game, which is a spinoff game of Angry Birds. You can race as your favorite angry bird and pig character in this racing game. It offers a local multiplayer mode, which lets you and your friends challenge each other while sitting together on a sofa. Doesn’t it sound interesting?
What I like is, the individual characters have special powers that help smash the opponents and help win the games. Also, it has varied racing tracks such as air courses, off-road tracks, racetracks, stunt tracks, etc. That’s not all — campaign mode, daily races, and time-limited tournaments make it more exciting!
Alien Invaders is the modern spinoff of the classic retro game — Space Invaders. You need to defend the Earth from alien invaders in this game. It is a castable multiplayer game which you can play with your friends and family members on the big screen. It is like you are part of the movie named “Star Trek“.
What I liked the most is, you can play with up to five persons in Alien Invaders. It feels like playing a big party game with all your friends. Don’t you think?
Chess is a mindful interesting game, but what can be more interesting? A chess game showing up on your television, allowing you and your opponent to play on the big screen. You can also play practice matches with the computer.
What’s more? It also offers puzzles and online multiplayer gaming mode, which eventually improves one’s gaming experience — just try it once!
Satis-Factory is a board game, which can be played in a single or multiplayer mode. You need to gather resources and use them to save the world. Yes, a big motto! You roll the dice to get the resources, then build weapons using them, and finally strike your opponents using the weapons. Does it sound like fun?
In this game, you fight against the Satis — a toxic compound destroying the cities. You must create the weapon before most of the cities are destroyed. Can you protect the cities? There is only one way to find out — play the game.
Tricky Titans is a local multiplayer game where you compete directly with your friends. You get to play the Primal Smackdown — one of the biggest sports events of all time. It’s a casual yet chaotic game where you do everything for the victory — be it deceiving friends, defending villages, and smashing things.
What’s most interesting? Its design is built around the local multiplayer game strategy. That means you get to play the game right from your smartphone and watch your actions unfold on the television. I think it’s pretty cool. Moreover, you can also customize your titan and adjust the game preferences as well.
10. Bingo Set
You and your friends can enjoy a game of bingo with Bingo Set. It offers the most popular bingo variations: 75-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo. What I like is, it gets you three game modes that allow you to host, play the game, or do them both. Then, you can cast it on the television for everyone to participate.
Moreover, you can edit the game profiles — like for 75-ball bingo — to make your own rules for the game. It digitalizes the whole game, for example, when you call Bingo, the numbers on the cards can be verified via Bluetooth. That said, the game is, nevertheless, the same you know and enjoy with others — Bingo!
