We have long forgotten about the times when you could only play Snake on your mobile device. Nowadays, some of the biggest console and PC games have mobile versions that you can play anytime and anywhere.
You are now able to have a live gaming experience at your fingertips. These are the best and most exciting games that you can play on your mobile device right now.
A game whose popularity skyrocketed during the peak of the pandemic, thanks to several Twitch streamers, is Among Us. The game is simple, you control a character, and your job is to either do tasks or do your assignments but also to kill your crewmates without being caught.
The concept has been done before, a “Whodunit?” style of game. What makes the game so interesting and exciting is that you have to lie, pay attention to what everyone is doing, remember specific events, etc. This all culminates in a loud, frustrating game that can get your blood boiling and test friendships.
Blek is one of the most unusual and addictive games that has been released in ages. The player has to draw a line on the screen that then moves and repeats itself across the screen. The game’s object is to get the line to hit coloured circles without touching the black circles or going off the top or bottom of the screen.
While this sounds easy enough, the levels can be brutally tricky and require outside-the-box thinking. It is, however, ultra-minimalistic, beautifully designed, and so addictive you’re going to forget how long you’ve been playing for.
Call of Duty Mobile
The first-person shooter giant has been on mobile for quite a while now, but it is easily one of the most popular mobile games on the market. Similar to its PC and console counterparts, COD Mobile offers players a wide variety of characters, maps, weapons, and customizations.
The mobile version also has exclusive mobile skins, a Battle Pass, and many fan-favourite maps that you would find in the full versions of the game. Don’t let the “mobile” in the name fool you either; this game does not feel like a mobile version.
Clash Royale is a game that was born out of the success of Clash of Clans. You play against one other person or two vs. two. You build a deck of four cards, each with a soldier type or ability that you can then use in-game to defeat your opponent.
It is a mixture of Hearthstone and Clash of Clans, but the games are quick and exciting right from the start. You can also open chests to get deck upgrades or acquire new units and have access to everything you need to build the best deck possible.
Crossy Road is an arcade game that made its way onto mobile a few years ago. The game’s object is simple: get your character across the seemingly never-ending road without getting hit by cars, trucks, trains, or whatever else is on the street.
The simplicity of the game is what makes it so exciting to play. You try and get further and further than you did before, with the obstacles becoming more and more difficult as you get further along and the ever-looming threat of an instant ‘game over’.
Fallout Shelter is a condensed version with more emphasis on survival and exploration based on the hit franchise of the same name. You are in charge of several people who need shelter to survive, and you give them jobs, outfits, and weapons to improve their abilities.
You can send some of your dwellers out to explore the wasteland and bring back supplies, as well as partake in missions. These missions earn you various rewards, from bottle caps to new outfits, weapons, and crafting materials.
A puzzle version of the hit favourite, Hitman Go, puts you in control of Agent 47 as you guide him through numerous levels in this turn-based strategy game. If you ever played Metal Gear Solid, this game will feel very familiar.
The game is essentially like Chess. You move, and then the enemies move, with your job being to make it to the exit as quickly as possible without being caught or dying. Another game that is easy to learn but very hard to get right.
PUBG was the biggest Battle Royale game on the planet at one point, and while that has now changed, the game is still as fun and exciting as ever. The fact that it is now on mobile means you can get your Battle Royale fix whenever you want.
The game features the same weapons fans know and love, as well as the ability to explore, loot up and take out any enemy that crosses your path. Battle Royales are simple to grasp, but PUBG mobile just gets it right.
Minecraft has been a fan-favourite game for years now, but Terraria is the Minecraft-style game you didn’t know you wanted. It is a 2D version of the world-explorer game, but you can still mine, craft, and build like Minecraft.
The procedurally generated world is vast, allowing for endless exploration and discovering new areas, biomes, and creatures. There are also NPCs to interact with and enemies to defeat. It is the mobile, 2D version of Minecraft.
