Bored-At-Home-This-Circuit-Breaker-Period-Here-Are-10-Circuit-Breaker-Games-To-Keep-You-Entertained

The circuit breaker period that recently started might probably have left you with a lot of free time on your hands, plus a fair share of stress. Singapore’s circuit breaker period will last from the 7 April 2020, to 1 June 2020.

Video games are good distractions and help pass the time more easily. However, it’s important to get only the best games, or you’ll get even more frustrated than you already are.

Here are 10 popular circuit breaker games that will help you blow some steam during this challenging period.

Through these games, you can also take the opportunity to spend some quality time with your family and friends!

1. Pummel Party

You’ll like Pummel Party especially if you’re a fan of arcade-style games. This game will have you in a virtual world, fighting with your friends. The participants throw dices to find out how many steps they’re able to take on the map in their quest for “cups”.

What makes Pummel Party different is the mini-games you’ll play between rounds, which establish new power structures and advantages. Besides, you can steal your friends’ victories right as they’re about to win. What could be better?

Cost: $14.50

2. Animal Crossing Pocket Camp

This circuit breaker period leaves you with a lot of free time to start doing some housework. However, doing housework in real life isn’t nearly as much fun as doing it in a game. That’s because Animal Crossing allows you to craft unique furniture for your campsite.

Another reason to try Animal Crossing Pocket Camp is that it donates part of its profits to museums that have closed during the COVID-19 outbreak. So while you play, you can also contribute to keeping museums open.

Cost: Free, but you may make in-app purchases

3. Crossy Road

While you’re stuck at home for the COVID-19 circuit breaker, try this game. You can play it online for free, and you’ll get addicted pretty quickly. That’s because playing Crossy Road is very much like going outside during the COIVD-19 outbreak.

As such, your objective is to get across an array of roads, avoiding obstacles. For instance, once you get to a river, you need to find something that floats to get you across. Otherwise, the bald eagle kills you.

Cost: Free. Characters cost from $0.99 to $3.99.

5. Lego Marvel Super Heroes

Cooped up at home during the circuit breaker period makes you want to go out and kick some COVID-19 behind.

The best way to do that, though, is staying inside and playing a superhero game. Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a top choice because you get to fight a lot of baddies.

This Lego-themed adventure game allows you to fly, smash, or shoot your enemies. All the while, you’ll be discovering iconic locations from the Marvel Universe, while getting your frustration out.
