7 Mobile Games to Complete Your Smart Device

Tired of the games on your device? Or maybe you’re looking for something new to pass the time in your morning commute? Whether you like strategy games or a good mystery, we’ve got you covered with 7 top-rated games to update your iOS or Android device!


1. Does Not CommuteAndroid / iOS
40.96 MB
Free / $1.99

In this strategy driving game, you start out with a relaxing cruise around a 1970s town and as you progress, you are given different types of vehicles to drive ranging from hot dog trucks to school buses. Aside from this, you also discover the secrets and happenings within the small town you’re in. For example, in Level 1, Mr. Hernandez, an ice cream truck driver, goes to buy rat poison and in Level 3, he’s back again to drive to the beach to give out ice cream to a family which prompts the police to do an investigation. It’s like watching a TV drama unfold! Other mysteries that will keep you tapping your screen include the strange mask on Mrs. Griffin’s face and Dr. Schneider’s world-changing experiment.

While the game is completely playable for free, you have to pay a small amount of $1.99 to unlock the checkpoint feature which will enable you to pick up right where you left off. Pretty worth it, if you ask us!

2 - monument

2. Monument Valley — Android / iOS
275 MB

The objective of this game is simple: manipulate optical illusions to outsmart Crow People and guide Princess Ida through a surreal world. With its minimalist 3D design and stunning musical landscape, this may be one of the most beautiful things your $3.99 can get you.

3 - murder

3. Murder in the Hotel Lisbon — Android / iOS
39.6 MB

Join the world’s worst detective, Detective Case and his joke machine of a sidekick Clown Bot as they attempt to solve the “suicide” case involving a man with 14 stabs to the back while he peacefully sips his coffee. Inspired by the 80s and 90s, this refreshingly humorous pixel art mystery game definitely gives you the (retro) bang for your buck. And because the game takes pride in its “crappy jokes”, there’s even a FREE mini-game called Stand Up Clown (Android / iOS) featuring Clown Bot’s sideline: stand up comedy!

4 - guardians

4. Tiny Guardians — Android / iOS
188 MB

Sure, everyone is familiar with tower defense games where you destroy your enemies as they make their way into your tower but what about a game that flips a whole game genre on its head? Tiny Guardians lets you move about the map as the game’s protagonist, Lunalie, with no predetermined path and defeat the enemies that approach you as you make your way through the level. Think of it like DoTA. Only loads cuter.

5 - asphalt

5. Asphalt 8: Airborne — Android / iOS
1.22 GB
Free / In-app purchases

Zoom around hyper-real cities in this mobile racing game that’s part of the cult favorite Asphalt series. Different in-app purchases entitle you to many different things such as new cars, in-game currency, and the eradication of pesky roadblocks.

6 - alphabear

6. Alphabear — Android / iOS
61.2 MB
Free / In-app purchases

Probably the cutest word game ever invented, Alphabear’s objective is to make your bears grow bigger and bigger by spelling words from the existing letters in the grid and maybe win some cute bears to (digitally) keep as well! Purchase some extra honey for more levels or get yourself some coins to score more cute bears. A good deal, if we do say so ourselves!

7 - marvel

7. Marvel Future Fight — Android / iOS
497 MB
Free / In-app purchases

Go on an epic dungeon crawl with a Marvel superhero trio of your choosing and kick some supervillain butt in an original story created by acclaimed writer Peter David.
