Let’s face it, nothing beats curling up in bed after a long day, apart from curling up in bed with one of the best mobile games ever. Here’s a rundown of some of our favourite mobile games so that you can add some fun to your relaxation.
Exiled Kingdoms is an extraordinary accomplishment. It is a vintage style RPG game reminiscent of the original Diablo, complete with pre-rendered backgrounds and character sprites. It comes with all the standard RPG features including character customisation, classes, builds, skills, traits and levels. Your character can be male or female and you can choose from a range of character classes including rogue, warrior, cleric and mage. Exiled Kingdom is a remarkable game despite its standard RPG setup. It has a huge range of locations. The game itself includes over 120 hours of gameplay, has a genuinely interesting story and some beautiful art. At around £3.50 Exiled Kingdoms will keep you entertained indefinitely no matter how much you travel.
Angry Birds is timeless and just as addicting as ever, but now you have Angry Birds 2 to keep you occupied. It combines all the tactical yet casual sling-shot elements of the original with team challenges and all new game modes. If you loved Angry Birds, like social games and are a bit competitive then Angry Birds 2 is the game for you.
If you love atmosphere, puzzles and have a decent sized screen, then Limbo is for you. It’s a stunning and distinctive game with accessible gameplay. The story is simple and soundless. You’re a boy, on a mission to save your sister and you’ve entered the dark world of Limbo to do it. To rescue her you’re going to have to solve some difficult puzzles and defeat what is arguably the most terrifying spider in video game history.
A nice basic RPG and a supreme time-waster. The game is easy to play, responsive, fluid and has beautiful backgrounds. It isn’t the most complex RPG in the world but you can complete it both offline and for free. Despite its simplicity, Eternium is incredibly addictive with regular in-game rewards, engaging fast-paced gameplay and stunning in game effects. In short it’s mindless fun and a great way to kill a day or six.
A multi-award winning game that’s free to play. You’ll need a lot of space on your device for this work of art but if you can make space then it’s well worth it. In short it’s a beautiful simulation game with a classic Fallout twist. Your job is to turn a vault into a perfect place to live and create a thriving community of vault dwellers. To do this you’ll need to plan your vault carefully and get to know your dwellers. Understanding your dwellers will be key to success as you assign them jobs, train them and upgrade their abilities. Make sure you get it right as the wasteland is anything but safe.
Lapse is a free and simple offline choice game. All you have to do is choose between two options, left or right, when faced with a problem. The choices you make will decide the fate of a nation cursed to dwell in a post-apocalyptic world. It sounds simple enough but Lapse is not what it seems. The more good choices you make the closer you get to unearthing the mystery that is Lapse. Lapse is one of the few games with a well-thought out plot that will keep you guessing until the very end.
The game that ruined my entire life. It didn’t really, but it was close. Cat Life is incredibly addictive. It’s cute, competitive, reward heavy, customisable and social. This game is the perfect storm and may well keep you on your mobile indefinitely. The aim is simple, complete the puzzles to move up the board and unlock pets as you go. You can also care for your pets and decorate their home. It doesn’t sound addicting but it is. Cat Life reminds me of alcopops, sweet and assuming, but that’s exactly what makes it so deadly.
