7 Game Apps You Didn't Know Were Made By Malaysians
* This article was written by our friendly intern, Nabila.

From the Angry Birds hype and Cut the Rope phase to the Flappy Bird frenzy and Pokemon Go fever, phone gaming is very much a thing. Some have skipped meals, turned anti-social and caused accidents on highways because of it. So, if you're an entrepreneur or business entity looking for an international break, this is a pie that you'd want to get your finger in.

Realising the opportunity that this platform holds, several Malaysian gaming companies have gone on to develop their own addictive game apps. We've listed a few of the made-in-Malaysia games you should try out. And to please the typical Malaysian in you, they are all free!
