There are titles out there with concepts that are not that easy to wrap your head around. Jasmine Osada picks six offbeat games for some quirky fun.
Dinosaur Simulator 3D Pro
$1.25 (Android), $1.28 (iOS)
Have you ever wondered how it feels to be a two-storey-tall Tyrannosaurus Rex?
Dinosaur Simulator answers that question by turning you into a T-Rex.
Your job is to run around town and cause as much destruction before the timer runs out. As your total score increases, so does your time limit.
If you run out of time, your T-Rex gets tired and it is game over.
There is not really much to do in this game besides charging at buildings, people, cars and trees, to try to knock them over, or to trample on as many things as you can.
However, all the stomping somehow made for quick, mindless smashing fun.
Can You Escape 2
Free, Android and iOS
You are stuck in a mysterious room with only one exit but the door is locked. To escape, you will need to search the tiny space for clues to solve the puzzle you are trapped in.
Can You Escape 2 is not your regular brain teaser and you will need more than logic and pattern-spotting skills to ace each stage.
Every item lying about in the room might be a tool that you can use and clues can be cleverly hidden anywhere.
Featuring sleek graphics and some pretty challenging stages, this game almost makes you feel like you are part of a James Bond death trap.
Room escape games can lose their magic once the puzzles are solved but this is not a deal-breaker as this game is free anyway.
