Every now and then, it's refreshing to play a game that doesn't involve much thinking. Sega is set to bring us just that, as a new game called WWE Tap Mania has soft launched for iOS and Android in the Philippines.
As its name implies, lots of mindless tapping will be involved as you rampage across an endless horde of opponents. Don't let its simple premise fool you, though, the game comes packed with features that will keep you entertained for quite some time.
In addition to defeating world class wrestlers, the constant tapping helps you earn points that you can spend on leveling up and unlocking other wrestlers to add to your roster. Each wrestler comes with their own special abilities to help you climb through the ranks, and with enough points, you can even unlock the ultimate champions you've adored since childhood — The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Sting, and Rick Flair, just to name a few.
WWE Tap Mania is not officially available to mobile gamers living outside the Philippines due to region restrictions customary to soft launches. Of course, there are ways to download and play the game right now regardless of where you live. So if you'd like to start tapping your way to glory with a motley team of wrestlers, continue reading to find out how.
To try WWE Tap Mania on Android, make sure to enable "Unknown sources" in Settings, then tap on the link below to download the APK installer file. From there, it's just a matter of launching the file and following the installation prompts, so be sure to tap "Install" when asked. You'll be free to open and play WWE Tap Mania once completed.
Your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch will need to be on iOS 9 or higher to be able to play WWE Tap Mania. In addition to that, the App Store's region restrictions will need to be bypassed before you can download the game in the US. To do this, create an Apple ID using a realistic home address from the Philippines.
Once you have a Filipino Apple ID, just sign in with the account on your iPhone and you'll automatically be transferred to the Philippines version of the App Store. If you'd like a detailed guide on the process of spoofing locations in the App Store, head to the following link to find out more:
