Every day, Filipinos go through long hours stuck in a traffic jam and usually, because it can take forever to get home, sometimes they end up asleep, tired from work. Sometimes they would listen to music in order to ease the tedious commute and escape. And more often than not, Filipinos love using their phones to check on social media or play games on their mobile phones.

If you’re one of those people who love to play games to pass the time while stuck in traffic, here are 5 games that you can play to relax during your commute or ride home!

Plants Vs. Zombies

Remember that time when everyone was obsessed with Plants Vs. Zombies? Well, it’s a definite old school favorite. It’s still as fun as ever to play on the road since all you have to do is tap, and the plants will defeat the zombies for you. It can be rather addicting though especially with the new versions of Plant vs. Zombies where there are new types of plants and new types of zombies.

Though considered as an older game, this classic is something that people play when stuck in traffic. According to a Netizen, old school is still the best and it brings back childhood memories.
