In this adorable cubic game, users get to play on the age old question, Why did the chicken cross the road?

Maybe it’s just me, but this game seems to have a very Super Nintendo-ish feel to it. The pixelated geometric graphics and obstacle course gameplay resemble that of an early Mario, but with cute little geometric somethings instead of mustached plumbers.
If the controls are a little tricky to get used to at first, start out with Geometry Dash’s practice mode to get the feel for things. Then it’s on to some adventurous antics, with cool effects like gravity reversal to keep you entertained for hours.
Calling all brainiacs – this is your chance to challenge your friends in a virtual battle of the wits.

One final note, downloading games and using public or unsecured Wi-Fi can leave you open to hackers and other cybercrimes. Therefore, it’s best to have a VPN (Virtual Private Network) installed on your device first. This will encrypt the connection, protecting you from having your information stolen and also from viruses and malware.
Forget cutting the grass, let the dishes pile up, and eat some other time – get comfy and sink into one of these guilty pleasures for some of the best mobile gaming there is.
