The applications that are most used in a smart TV are streaming video applications , such as Netflix or YouTube , there is no doubt about that. However, these types of applications are not the only ones that we can find in Samsung televisions of 2016. The new Tizen OS system offers us many interesting applications, including some games . And we are not referring to playing from the mobile and seeing it on the big screen, but to games that we can install and play directly on the television , without having to use the mobile. But how do they work and what kinds of games do we have available? Let's go overthe best games that we can find in the 2016 Samsung Smart TV .
How does it work?
The first thing we need to know is how the Samsung gaming system works . It's simple, the games are installed like any other application . In the applications menu we have a special section called Games . Here we will have the games available to install directly on the TV. There are not a lot of games, but there are some quite interesting ones. The TV offers us about 4 GB of capacity to install applications , so we can install several games without problems.
Surely you are wondering how we are going to play games on a smart tv if we do not have a gamepad available . Well, we have several options. We can play some games directly with the Smart Control or with the standard TV remote control . However, other games do require a gamepad . And it is that the Samsung operating system allows you to connect various types of controllers to the TV, both via USB and Bluetooth .
To know if the game we want to play needs a Gamepad or not , we will only have to click on the game and a screen will appear on the left with information about it. We can see the age rating , the size of the game and also the accepted drivers .
What games can we find?
As we have mentioned, we do not have a large number of games available, but we do have some that have been very important on mobile devices. To be exact, at the time of writing, we have 11 games available to install. Perhaps the one that most caught our attention has been the Asphalt 8: Airborne . One of the most important car games for Android and iOS that has been brought to the Samsung system . The Asphalt 8 is a whole set of driving the purest style Need For Speed , it also offers us some arcade graphics really good . And best of all, we wo n't need to connect a gamepadto the TV, we can play with the Smart control or even with the standard remote (although it is highly recommended to play with a gamepad).
If what we like is Call Of Duty- style FPS , we have two games available. On the one hand we find the acclaimed Modern Combat 5: Blackout , one of the best FPS for Android , with impressive graphics and very good gameplay . We also have the Piercing Blow Special game, a game much simpler in graphics but that takes up much less space on your hard drive. To play both we will need a Gamepad yes or yes.
For lovers of gambling we also have two alternatives available. On the one hand we have the Casino World Championship game and on the other hand we have the Texas Holder 3D game . Both take up very little storage space and both can be played with the standard TV remote .
We also have a very interesting game available for RPG lovers . This is Dungeon Hunter 4 , a game with very powerful graphics , great battles and a very interesting story mode . The game occupies 1.17 GB and requires the Gamepad to play.
To play as a family we have the Just Dance Now game available , one of the most popular dance games for smartphones in the world. And if what you are looking for is a game for the little ones in the house, we have Despicable Me: Minion Rush available , a fun game with the Minions as protagonists that we can play with the TV remote control .
Lovers of the beautiful game will also have the opportunity to “play some games” with the Real Football game , an old acquaintance of mobile systems that offers us good graphics and good gameplay . Of course, the use of a gamepad will be essential .
Finally, also highlight a game called "casual" , for those little moments that we want to play something fast. It's Shark Dash , a well-known game on Android , very much like Angry Birds , but with sharks and fish.
In short, a selection of games that, although it is true that it is not too extensive, is equipped with games of practically all kinds, the majority being games that have been very successful on mobile platforms.
