Playing games on devices is fun. You get to try various moves, do some master actions, and much more, and when you complete the levels and win, it is a pretty satisfying and proud moment for you. And when you share your games winning journey with your friends, they might not clearly understand the way you will explain it to them, or they might not be able to imagine the actions that you did in the game to win.
