We all have that one thing we do when we’re bored or need a break from our daily routine. For some, it’s watching TV. For others, it’s reading a good book. But what about playing games on your smartphone? There are many games to choose from, and you can find them in the app store for iOS or Android devices. This article will show you some fun games that are great for killing time. 

Word games

Word games are always a great way to pass the time. SpellTower is a fun option because it’s challenging but also really engaging. You have to create words using tiles that are falling from the top of the screen. If you make a mistake, the tiles will start stacking up, and it becomes more difficult to clear them. The goal of the game is to spell as many words as you can before tiles start piling up. You are given a zig-zag line across the screen that will turn any tile into a blank space if you need to make more room for letters, which helps a lot.

Words is another word game worth checking out. The objective is to find as many words as possible in a grid of letters. The more words you find, the more points you earn. Letters that are adjacent to each other horizontally or vertically are connected and can be used to form words. If you’re stuck, you can use a hint, but it will cost you points.

Shooting games

If you’re in the mood for something a little more action-packed, shooting games are a great option. Crossy Road is a really fun and addictive game that’s sort of like Frogger. You have to help your character cross the street without getting run over. The further you get, the more obstacles you’ll encounter. There are more violent shooting games available, like Call of Duty: Mobile. You can even play Grand Theft Auto on your phone these days!

Arcade games

If you’re more into simple arcade-type games, try out Run Sausage Run. This game aims to help a sausage escape by collecting coins and avoiding obstacles like saws and lasers. Coins earned in the game can be used to purchase power-ups such as invincibility or invisibility that make it easier. The further you get, the faster the sausage runs, making it more difficult to avoid obstacles.

Slot games

Slot machines are always popular because of the element of chance. There are lots of different versions out there, and you just need to search for them! Luckily, it’s really easy to learn how to play online slots in an online casino. Just do a bit of online digging before finding the right slot game for you.

Retro games

Retro games, like Pac-Man and Tetris, are entertaining! Both of these arcade-style games have been available since the ’80s, so they’re definitely old school. That being said, they’re still really addictive. All you have to do in Pac-Man is collect all of the dots while avoiding ghosts.

In Tetris, your goal is to line up pieces, so they form complete rows without leaving any holes in-between. When three or more lines are connected, they disappear, and points are earned.
