Slap Kings lets you slap someone virtually. What better way than this to help you deal with all that lockdown frustration?

Clearly, the lockdown is getting to everyone. While we juggle daily chores and work, frustrations are peaking and there are very limited ways to deal with them.

Of course, you can work out and use up that energy. You can also slap it away.

Not in real life, please. This game called Slap Kings lets you slap your opponent for points. You can use these points to increase your health and power so you can slap better and also withstand a slap from your opponent better.

Inspired by the famous slapping matches in Russia (there are tonnes of videos out there so take a look if you don't know what we are talking about), available both on Android and iOS, Slap Kings has gotten VERY popular over this lockdown period, and we totally understand why, and is the most downloaded game for March 2020 across platforms.

According to the Sensor Tower report, this is how Slap Kings stands:
