Whatever platform you are using on the go, here are some of the best and most addicting mobile games right now. Download at your own risk!
1. Alto’s Adventure
Alto is an endless snowboarder/sprinter game. The main character makes his way into the snow-covered mountains in search of his missing llamas that escaped.
In the game, you run through different obstacles and jump off varying heights to collect coins. You also get to unlock snowboards, new characters, and levels. While it’s a simple and very straightforward game, it will keep you interested and focused.
2. Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga is one of the most popular games in the mobile industry and there’s a reason why. It’s a fairly simple game that requires you to switch and match colors. However, it is very addictive, with each level bringing on a new obstacle for you to overcome along with an increased difficulty level.
Join challenges to level up and earn boosters. If you reach your targets, you will get new surprises. There’s also a shop filled with color bombs, addictive boosters, and special candies to help you overcome difficult game levels.
Dots is played by connecting dots horizontally, vertically, or in the shape of a square so you can earn more points. In this game, you have three different game modes to choose from. There’s a Time mode in which you need to connect all dots within a specific time period to get more points. Meanwhile, the Moves mode lets you strategize and make calculated moves. There is also an Endless mode in which you can take as much time as you need to finish the game.
4. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers has established itself as the game that started the runner genre. While many new games under the same genre have popped up, this game is still just as much fun to play. You play the role of Jake and you need to escape a police officer while running through the subway tracks. The path is filled with obstacles you must dodge, including moving trains. The goal is to collect as many coins as you can to buy upgrades.
5. Super Mario Run
Super Mario is a beloved video game character who recently made his way into mobile devices. IN Super Mario Run, you control the titular character by swiping or tapping the screen as he keeps moving forward. You need to time your taps properly in order to pull off wall jumps, mid-air spins, and high jumps. The goal is to collect coins along the way and reach the end of each level.
Although this might seem like a clone of the classic runner Subway Surfers, it is actually more than that. After paying to unlock the game, you can access to four new modes and even create your own kingdom.
