The app market is enormous. And that is not surprising, considering that apps have become an essential component of our daily lives. And as the gaming industry continues to grow, hardcore gamers can expect more apps to come their way.
Wondering what apps can take your gaming adventures over the moon?
Here is a list of the best online gaming apps in the market you simply should not ignore.

2. Mario Kart
Who hasn’t heard of this classic car racing game? This game has just gotten better. Listen up, all you Nintendo fans- Mario and his friends are back. Mario Kart has gone mobile, making it accessible to all. So you can play it even without your consoles!
Mario Kart lets you race through obstacle courses. Whether you want to play alone or invite your friends, that’s up to you. But now, you can also race across real-life inspired tracks- for free!
3. Home Sheep Home
Meet Timmy, Shaun, and Shirley, three adorable sheep having loads of fun in their barn. Use everything that’s lying around and guide these characters back home. But this game is not as easy as it may appear to be at first glance. You’ll need to use swings, see-saws, ramps, steps, switches, and whatnot to clear these challenging levels.
But don’t forget to tap into the potential of each sheep to help out. Shirley is strong and overweight. She can shift heavy objects, while Timmy is tiny and can sneak into any nook and cranny. Shaun, on the other hand, is agile and good at jumping high.
4. Mini-o Stars
For those who love Star Wars and Subway Surfer, here’s a game by Unlimited Gamez Mo that you won’t want to put down. Mini-o Stars is a simple yet challenging addictive game.
All you have to do is help Luck Starwalker gather enough coins to free his friends. But you’ve got to be extra quick. And watch out for those angry space troopers!
5. Dungeon Hunter 5
Are you looking for a hack and slash role-playing game? Dungeon Hunter is yet another one of those fantasy action games full of dragons, dark knights, devil minions, and demons. However, for a true gamer, the catch lies in playing the 90+ dungeon crawler missions, each with a unique challenge than the previous one.
Rally up to 3 of your friends and fight side by side in Dungeon Hunter’s Co-Op multiplayer mode. Get ready to unleash your spells and skills on the battlefield.
Okay, so this is not a gaming app, but it definitely is one that can enhance your gaming experience.
Twitch is a popular live-streaming app for games that is suitable for both Android and Apple devices. You can watch live as well as pre-recorded broadcasts of your favorite online games, players, and esports events. More importantly, it offers a community space where you can chat with friends and fans.
While watching broadcasts and videos on Twitch is free, subscribing to a channel can cost $4.99 a month. Moreover, it offers benefits such as ad-free viewing, custom chat emotes, and additional chat privileges.
No list would be complete with this online game. Though it is similar to the Battle Royale style gameplay, it has unique features that make it popular. Players are dropped onto an island where they must fight each other until there’s only one player — or team — left standing. So yes, survival is the name of the game.
But what makes this game more popular than its rival, PUBG, are the over-the-top characters and the vibrant landscape. All in all, every aspect of the game adds to the strong addictive personality of the game.
