mobile games

Looking to pass the time? Well, if you’re bored out of your mind, downloading new games can help you get out of that rut. Games are one of the most downloaded apps in any app store, whether it’s in iOS or Android. In fact, there are so many games in both stores to the point that they’re listed in categories. Here are the best mobile games right now:

Cytus II

Arguably one of the best rhythm games in both iOS and Android today, Cytus II is the offshoot of the original, widely-successful Taiwanese-produced mobile games VOEZ and DEEMO. The game is a continuation of Cytus, where Aser, who has never shown his face before, holds a virtual concert.

With interesting beats and the increasing difficulty of gameplay, this is the perfect game to be immersed in when you want to kill time or you’re particularly invested in rhythm games. It is free to play on both operating platforms so all you need to do is download it, follow the setup instructions, and voila, you have another entertaining game living on your phone!

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go may not be as popular as it was when it first debuted, but with several millions of downloads on the latest updates, it’s safe to say that there are still tons of players out there. With the raid system in place, you can easily find other players to fight a Raid Boss. Level 5 Raid Bosses usually are legendary Pokemon so that’s an exciting addition to your Pokedex!

PUBG Mobile

PUBG is the game to beat when it comes to action as well as strategizing. In its latest update, PUBG is better than ever, with more options for upgrades, deathmatches, and classic battles. Graphics-wise, it’s one of the best in any games with HD resolution paired with 3D sounds. If your jam is to play against players online, this is the perfect game for you.

Plants Vs Zombies 3

Another sequel to the popular Plants Vs. Zombies franchise, the third edition of keeping your brain safe from zombies, features new plants with special abilities, a storyline that keeps you playing through the wee hours of the night, and forces you to decide on better strategies in keeping the zombies out of your lawn. Of course, the classic Peashooter and Wall-Nut are still there.


Boggle is the ultimate word game. It’s not only a great way to improve your brain’s word-building abilities, but it also forces you to decide on what words to prioritize to get as many points as possible. The Tournament room pits you with millions of online users, with special ticket rewards in four special categories.

Boggle is the game to play when you’re waiting for your turn in the doctor’s office, or you want something to distract you from doing nothing. It’s a great game to play before bed as well – it increases cognitive functions while keeping it in tip-top shape. Free to play on both iOS and Android.


Who doesn’t like Fortnite? It’s one of the most popular video games and mobile game releases of 2017, and three years after its initial release, the game is bigger and better. The three classic gameplay modes are still in effect, but the latest update has cleaned out some nasty bugs on receiving and buying resources. Play with your team or join a guild today and build the best fortification you can muster!

Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a stunning game. Let’s get that out there. It’s a highly conceptual game that lets you guide a silent princess while manipulating the architecture of impossibly stunning buildings. While it is true that this game isn’t for everyone, the surreality of the entire world that you’re going to be immersed in is more than enough to let you try it.


To be able to experience these games, you’ll need to have a smartphone with an above-average chipset, with a great screen, and decent battery life. Games use some major resources, that’s why if you’re an avid mobile gamer, it pays to invest in a device that can run the best of the bests, the heaviest of the heavy, and resource-hungriest of them all.
