Amazing Games from my Childhood (2010 – 2015)

Riddhi Bhattacharya

On just turning 18, amidst the pandemic, I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic about a lot of elements from my younger years, exactly about 10 years ago! Given the abundant amount of time I had, I chose to rediscover some of the games I enjoyed the most (or remembered) from my childhood!

15. Talking Tom

Honestly, we have all been through the phase where chatting with Tom was everyone’s favourite pass-time and also the phase when parents were running around snatching tablets and iPads because they were scared of Tom stealing personal details!

Yet, personally, I was not a huge fan of the old Talking Tom but I am all in for the newer one, just for its games! It has such a fun variety of mini-games from Tiles, designed to test skill, reflexes and puzzle-solving ability – puzzle games, action games, adventure games, and even a sports game. Personally, my favourite among them is the memory game, a must-play for my mom and me when we are truly bored!

14. Angry Gran

 Angry Gran Run is an endless running game where you play as everyone’s favorite angry grandma! Gran is on the loose and she’s not taking any prisoners. Run through the streets of Miami and dodge dolphins, dinosaurs, robots, and more on your quest to take Gran as far as she can go!

It used to be loads of fun, that can be played without worrying about battery life! It’s a great game but once you have unlocked all the extra features it just gets boring and you don’t have anymore fun with it.

13. Subway Surfers

I’ve played Subway Surfers since I was a little kid and practically grew up with it, till I stopped playing games. The game is fun and requires lots of skill or just fast fingers and has amazing graphics which deserves to have “hype”. I also absolutely love the global representation make and maps that the game proudly boasts!

12. Temple Run

In pretty much every treasure hunting adventure movie there’s one specific scene in which the plucky hero finally gets his hands on the treasure but then has to navigate a maze of booby traps in order to get out alive. Temple Run is this scene and nothing else. And it’s amazing.  But there are two things I don’t like. For starters, the fact that you have to tilt your device to get the coins. It seems unnecessary and I feel it would just be easier to swipe left and right.

The other thing I dislike is how it gets faster and faster as time goes on. It gets quite hard to use and I feel myself getting stressed. Other than that though, I absolutely love the game. One of my favorite things it that you can customize your avatar. I also really enjoy the landscape design, it seems random but it’s really beautiful and detailed and and it brings the perfect idea of a jungle. 

11. Spider Monkey

I really do not know if a lot of people know this game, but I love it – spider monkey and I spent afternoons together every day under the covers. This game is one of the games which you want to stop playing but you can’t, you are determined to finish the level, especially if you have tried to get the level loads of times but you just can’t which makes you angry and want to defeat the level just to kinda get your revenge when you don’t actually really care about beating the level.

10. Where’s my Water?

Filled with cute characters, a colourful and charming visual style, the Disney Game is a host of new mechanics. Where’s My Water? entertains by challenging your spatial awareness and timing skills in rewarding ways. Its variety of stage types, intuitive touch controls, and greatly enhanced presentation make it a true standout.

This is a fantastic game for both children and adults. It’s challenging, entertaining, and fairly easy to play. Unlike other games, you don’t have to spend real money in order to purchase cheats or power-ups. You can progress on your own skill. It’s an enjoyable way to pass the time on a road trip, a lazy afternoon, or when you just need a break and want something mindless to do.

9. Cut the Rope

Cut the Rope is a downright adorable action puzzle-physics game. It’s also fresh, challenging, gorgeous, and highly entertaining. It has simple rules, intuitive controls, and can be played in short bursts or blitzed through in a marathon gaming session.

The only thing I would say is to maybe start out when you buy the game with two or three teles, magnets, and flashes so that’s it’s easier at the beginning to pass to get used to it while you still have the upgrades on those three things throughout the game. 

8. Paper Toss : The Paper Game

Sadly, this amazing game of aiming and and quick fingers is no longer on the App Store or Google Play, yet I absolutely loved throwing paper balls in bathrooms, prisons, dustbins, water cans, and it was the perfect way to spend long, boring afternoons! We should really petitions to bring back this gold!

7. Smash Hit

Take a surreal journey through an otherworldly dimension, move in harmony with sound and music and smash everything in your path! This experience requires focus, concentration, and timing to not only travel as far as you can but also break the beautiful glass objects that stand in your way.

In this entrancing game of skill and spatial awareness, you lob spheres to clear a path through abstract environments, tapping into our innate fascination of watching virtual objects crumble apart. The part reflex challenge, part hypnotic journey across a strange, striking landscape, Smash Hit is a riveting experience.

6. Jetpack Joyride

Jetpack Joyride thrusts you into an unforgettable horizontal adventure. This stylish infinite runner gets your pulse pounding as you feverishly snag coins, dodge obstacles, and take rides in crazy vehicles (think: robotic dragons and money-propelled birds). It’s a classic that’s only gotten better over the years, thanks to Halfbrick Studios’ consistent updates.

5. Hungry Shark

The ocean’s your preyground and you’ve gotta keep feeding in this deliciously goofy arcade romp. Rushing from meal to meal—fishes, birds, hapless beachgoers—keeps the pace exhilarating, and the gorgeous environments are a feast for your eyes. Meanwhile, random hazards (mines, pollution, bigger sharks) add a thrilling sense of danger—reminding you that you’re not the only predator in these waters.

4. Rail Rush

Even though the game play is honestly somewhat repetitive (as it would be) I can tell a lot pf work was put into making a diverse environment, such as different kinds of obstacles and even different zones(which don’t really affect the game, but help heighten the mood). I found it to be a little too “pay-to-win” with characters that were kind of cheaply designed and didn’t have much depth and the characters you had to buy were always better. 

3. Fruit Ninja

It has been years since I have played this wonderful, diverse, stunning game. This new, updated version brought back beautiful memories of competitive and casual gameplay, in the simple yet expansive concept. I am loving everything so far!! One thing though, I’m not sure if it’s just me or if it’s intended, but the XP system is a bit inconsistent at times, where sometimes small amounts of XP don’t increment as much as other times on the progress bar, especially with completing missions. This makes it take an incredible amount of games to level up, around the level the ’20s or so.

2. Carnivores – Dinosaurs Hunter

I love this game it is amazing but, there’s one problem. That problem is having to spend 5 dollars to get pro. As annoying as they get I’m fine with dealing with ads, but seriously, I first got this game when I was a younger kid, and it was all I played, but now you have the in-app purchases. Which don’t lower the quality of the game but they do lower the quality of the fun. So all I’m saying is, would it be so hard to take out the in-app purchases to get all the Dinosaurs. I’m fine with having only 2 guns and only 1 map but I do want all the dinosaurs.

1. Robbery Bob

Play as Bob, the hapless burglar intent on changing his ways. Unfortunately for Bob, however, he’s going to be forced into a few final jobs before he’s allowed out of the criminal life. This game is genuinely a joy to play and an interesting take on the robbing genre. If the Grand Theft Auto phenomenon has taught us anything, it’s that we as a people love theft. Robbery Bob is just one of the many games that fill that demand.

So that is my list of games from my childhood that I really miss playing and spending long evenings on. Let me know in the comments below, what were your favorites!
