Pandemic 2020: Game distractions

At the beginning of the lockdown, I favored playing games on my iPad mini. Two in particular were Tail Gun Charlie and Crash Dive, Both of which are produced by Panic Ensues Software.

Tail Gun Charlie is an adrenaline rush of blowing WWII aircraft out of the sky as a (wait for it!) tail gunner. The genius part of this game is the  endless customization, including type of aircraft and delay between when they appear.

Crash Dive is a sophisticated U-boat simulator that also offers multiple game types and customization. As a commander, you get to prowl the Atlantic in search of prey. It’s always fun when aircraft carriers show up.

But iPad games only go so far. Currently, I’m replaying Star Wars Battlefront 2. Every time I play the space battles, I’m in awe of the graphics. In addition to being able to fly around detailed Star Destroyers in an X-wing, the lighting is absolutely stunning. I suppose it helps to be playing in 4K.
