Intense and addictive games are a huge craze among gamers who love playing them on a mobile. every game these days require an active internet connection to play, compete and achieve goals/rewards real-time.

But there are definitely times when I am struggling with an active mobile internet/mobile network and desperately wish to play mobile games and kill my time. That is when it I realize the majority of these games require an active internet connection and become completely non-playable when you have zero networks. Wanna know when do we have such situations come across to us?

  • During road commute when you wish to kill time by playing mobile games and you know the mobile network and data will be fluctuating.
