Top 10 Free Games for Mac 2018

So you have finally got yourself a Mac, and are looking for games that you can play. Considering how pricey a Mac is, it really does not come as a surprise if you are not willing to dish out the dough for new games. Fortunately, you can get plenty of free games for your Mac, and all it takes is a few simple steps to get them in order to start playing. However, if you do not know which one to get started with, here is a list of the top 10 free games for Mac that you must get your hands on right away.

1. Doodle Hangman

By EnsenaSoft

This is by far the nicest version of hangman you will come across. It is available for free and is perfect for having a great time with your friends.

You have the ability to choose from a variety of word categories. What is really amazing is the fact that said words are linked to their reference sites, which means you get to learn more about new words and what they actually mean in the first place.

2. Basketmania

By NO2 Web and Mobile Applications, S.L.

The game will strike you with its visuals, but what sets it apart is how it will leave you keep you entertained for hours.

As for how it works, it is really simple. You use the dotted line to choose your trajectory to fling the ball. The game is easy to start with, but gets really challenging along the way.

3. Alpine Crawler

By Dimension Technics

The game can be categorized as a cross-country vehicle simulation, and it is a laugh to play. You get to choose from different vehicles and pickups to drive around the Alps.

Alpine Crawler is different from the usual car games in terms of its off-road setting. Moreover, you will not have to worry about driving around the same track over and over again either, as there are plenty of different locations for you to drive around.

4. Shotgun FunFun HD

By Indigon Inc.

For those moments when you need to take a break for a minute or two, Shotgun FunFun HD will meet and exceed your expectations.

The side scrolling action game gives you control of an avatar, using which you will blast your way through the undead. Armed with a shotgun to take on zombies, it is dumb fun that must be had.

5. Full Deck Solitaire

By GRL Games

Solitaire is one of those games that you can easily spend one to two hours playing. But for an even better experience, Full Deck Solitaire is exactly what you need for your Mac.

Full Deck Solitaire is not only visually stunning, but it is easy to pick up and start playing. Even though it is very much the same Solitaire you have come to admire, the fact that it is free makes it even more tempting than it already is.

6. Touchgrind

By Illusion Labs

Touchgrind was initially created and released for the iPhone. The game is one of a kind and really simple to play. With your fingers you get to carry out insane tricks on the trackpad, which serves as a virtual skate.

The game can also be referred to as fingerboarding, and you will need a minute or two to understand how it works. But when it comes to mastering it, you will eventually end up spending hours playing Touchgrind. This is largely because of the game’s physics which require precision and accuracy unlike any other.

7. BombSquad

By Eric Froemling

Beware! BombSquad is one of the most highly addictive games for Mac. But what makes this experience even more overwhelming is the fact that you can use your iPhone as a controller.

Within the game, you have the single player and the co-op mode as well, which means you can have a great time with your friends rather than playing BombSquad on your own.

The game is quite smooth with zero glitches or bugs. The sound effects and music enhance the overall experience.

Whether you like to throw bombs or punch your enemies, there is a lot to do in this game. But the objective is fairly simple, you have to be the last man standing.

8. Octagon

By Lukas Korba

The minimal, arcade game is not as easy as it may seem. You will have to be really fast to keep up with its pace. Rest assured, you will be at the edge of your seat while playing Octagon.

Once you start the game, you will need to use the directional keys on your keyboard to navigate a ball through a tunnel.  You will have to overcome obstacles like missing pieces in the tunnel and gaping holes to get to the end, with each round lasting 60 seconds.

The game does not stop just there, as its stellar soundtrack keeps its pace with the game. If that is not enough, the color scheme will keep changing and will keep you in the zone. The game is rather challenging, especially since each level is randomly generated.

9. World of Tank Blitz

By WARGAMING Group Limited

If you are thinking the game sounds awfully familiar, you are absolutely correct. The game is athe Mac equivalent of the popular PC game available on Steam, World of Tanks.

With 18 battle arenas and 200+ armored vehicles to choose from, you will have the time of your life. The game gets even more interesting since its features 7v7 multiplayer as well.

The graphics and sound design are quite good. The game features an in-chat option, meaning you can communicate with your teammates to form effective strategies to beat your opponents for better bonuses and achievements.

10. Shadow Fight 2

By Nekki Games

The game is immensely popular on iOS and Android devices, that too for good reason. You play as a warrior that must defeat all his/her opponents. On the way, you will be aided by different people in the form of new skills and weapons.

With some great fights, Shadow Fight 2 will not only keep you entertained, but it will allow you to flex your mental muscles for the best possible combinations you can use to win each fight.
