But, in the area of ??games, SAPO TEKtraz still apps that challenge you to build an amusement park on your smartphone and "swallow" everything you find along the way to grow. After the World Health Organization has already considered it a global public health emergency, the coronavirus is the theme of this week's last game.

For those who prefer to bet on photographs, SAPO TEK presented Glitch Lab as a proposal, which is inspired by the art that explores the "errors" of digital or analogue cameras. The results can be quite artistic and irreverent.

Know all the apps in detail.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch's challenge to build an amusement park on the smartphone

Build more than 250 thematic diversions, from roller coasters, to giant wheels, towers and other attractions to keep visitors happy and spend money.

The RollerCoaster Tycoon series is one of the oldest and most emblematic in the genre of thematic simulators, focused as the name implies on roller coasters. But more than that, it's all about the ability to manage a business around an amusement park, with hundreds of attractions to keep visitors happy and entertained, and of course, to spend money on activities: carousels, towers, wheels giants, in addition to restaurants, souvenir shops, toys, for a total of 250 offers.

All of this is available in the portable Touch version, very close to the PC and consoles, including the three-dimensional visuals that give color and animation to small amusement parks. The game has an interface adapted to the small screen, using touches to access the menus in a less confusing way.

The game features daily missions, weekly challenges, offering rewards to players to continue to improve their business. For players who want to create unique roller coasters, the game offers simple tools, and you can change its functionality at any time through the editor with a simple slide of your finger.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch can be accessed for free on iOS and Android versions.


The "mistakes" of the camera can also be artistic and there is an app that proves it.

It is called Glitch Lab and is inspired by the art that explores the "mistakes" of digital or analogue cameras.

Taking a good photo to share on Instagram or Facebook is already within reach of anyone with a smartphone. However, if you want to bet on something more artistic and with the effects of art that exploits the error of the analogue or digital machine, the Glitch Lab app can be an option.

With more than 100 effects, the application allows you to explore various resources, from color edits, from 3D to filters. You can, for example, make your photography style more retro with various effects, or, and this option is more irreverent, put an HTML code in the image. If you prefer, you can also animate a video, but, for that, you will have to activate this option from the app's settings.

As for other choices, you can import an image or video from your smartphone or take a photo directly from the application. Start from scratch, without any photography, and venture into the app another possibility. Once you have finished your work you can save the content on your phone.

The application is free and available for Android and iOS. Still, you always have the possibility to choose the premium version that offers you more editing features.
