Not going to lie, these days I don’t have much time for playing video games. Most of the time it seems such a waste and I can get way too obsessed… did I harvest my crops?!? Have they gone bad and all my efforts for naught?!? But there are those times I like to keep busy with something that stimulates my mind. I often like to read and crossword puzzles are tons of fun and embroidery travels well.
But I have a tendency to forget to bring these things and then I find myself sitting in a waiting room twiddling my thumbs and checking up on everybody’s Facebook statuses which is cool but totally unproductive. I hate feeling unproductive.
Also I’ve found that now that I am writing daily, my spelling is going down the drain. How the heck does that happen? It seems SO ridiculous. I type in words all day long and I start messing them up way more than I did when there were days the most I’d write was a single email or half a dozen text messages? Ridiculous!
So I downloaded AlphaBetty, free from the Apple App Store (also available on Google Play ) the first word-based “saga” game from King Digital, creator of Candy Crush franchise and Farm Heroes Saga. Right before bed I decided to check this baby out and I wound up playing until I was bleary eyed and making no words of any sense. Turns out the game is fun which is awesome but it is also challenging which is just about the only way I can stay interested in anything for very long.
I figure that AlphaBetty Saga will keep me busy while I sit in the passenger’s seat and my hands have tired of embroidering or drawing. And keeping my spelling mistakes to a minimum while travelling seems a pretty necessary thing! I mean, who wants to get lost on summer vacation because they misspelled something? Perhaps that is a long shot but I’ve got to tell you I’ve spent much time worrying over less!
In the end I’ve found a little game that I can keep on my phone and feel like I’m somewhat productive because I’m improving my spelling skills and keeping my brain active while keeping boredom at bay. Maybe that’s why AlphaBetty is the only game on my phone. It’s the only one I like enough to actually recommend :)
