Sometimes we just run out of things to do on our way to work or to school. We’re always looking to find the next game to obsess over, to scrutinize and burn out till we move on to the next. Here’s our list of the ten best game apps in the App Store.
10. Flappy Bird
Say what you will, but I personally cried when Flappy Bird was taken down. I still have it on all devices, and this game is still one of the best, funniest and most nerve-wracking games in app history.
9. Candy Crush
Candy Crush is a classic. The game exploded fairly quickly, too, and you’ll see about 85% of the people in your train car playing it during their morning commute to work or school. There are infinite variants to this game in the App Store, but none will ever measure up to the dude that calls your wins ‘tasty’ and ‘divine’.
8. A Dark Room
A Dark Room is a dangerously addicting game. It’s a mysterious journey of survival filled with vague messages that lead you where you need to go, and after a while it feels like something out of Resident Evil. Strangely immersive, A Dark Room will have you wired for hours on end, so downloading it in the middle of the work day is not recommendable.
7. Trivia Crack
Trivia Crack unites users from around the world with trivia questions from a slew of categories. The interface is simple and colorful and it can be enjoyed by anyone. Some will argue that QuizUp may be better, but Trivia Crack has stood the test of time and updates and makes for a super fun game to wind down and relax.
6. Monument Valley
Monument Valley has a killer soundtrack and beautiful visuals that take you on puzzle journeys the likes of which you’ve never seen before. It’s easily one of the prettiest and most immersive game apps out there.
5. Heads Up!
You’ve probably seen people with their phones against their foreheads in lines at amusement parks. This game has recently gained a lot of popularity, especially for people in large groups in queue for something. The app is super fun and filled with hilarious categories, and it’s free counterpart, Charades, make an hour long wait in line feel less daunting.
It’s a classic. Tetris lives forever, and it forever remains one of the greatest games of all time. You can’t beat that theme song, either.
3. Pac-Man 256
Pac-Man has seen many a variation and spin-off, but this app brings the classic goodness to your phone screen. Users old and new will find this game addictive and fun, making you feel like you’re in an arcade in the 80s.
2. Device 6
This adventurous puzzle game makes users feel like James Bond. Intricate and also packed with a kickass soundtrack, Device 6 takes players on mysterious, thrilling quests that’ll surely make your commutes that much more fun.
1. The Room/The Room Two
The Room/The Room Two are two of the greatest games to ever make it to the App Store. They’re beautiful and mysterious and take you through the story of one man in search of the truth, and its 3D graphics and intricate puzzles will have you hooked in seconds.
