The top 10 games you can play on your phone (from anywhere in the world)

​Mobile games are one of the best ways to relax or fill up a few spare moments. They make waiting in line or for the bus fly by and social games can also be a fun way to interact with friends. Mobile games have something for every player, from the casual word puzzle fan to the hardcore FPS gamer.

Here’s our list of the top 10 games that you can play on your phone today:

Raid: Shadow Legends

Gacha RPGs — free games were upgrades or special characters can be purchased — have some fierce critics, but they also have a huge number of fans. Raid: Shadow Legends is one of the best examples of the genre and once you’ve played it’s easy to see why so many are hooked.

Besides the gameplay, the main reason that it’s one of the top games is the graphics. It’s almost impossible to believe you’re playing a mobile game when it looks so good.

Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact is a fantasy adventure RPG that has enthralled fans with its beautiful graphics, unique characters and engaging battle mechanic. It’s a free to play game that offers fans an awful lot of great content and rewards return players with special events and prizes for completing daily quests.

Online casino games

This is a category of game rather than a particular one, but it’s worth mentioning because online casinos have exploded in popularity in recent years. Most now offer mobile apps as well to make choosing a game and playing even easier. Even stricter countries such as Russia — which has laws in place that regulate land-based casinos, now offer a great range of online casinos. Mobile casinos are especially popular, according to the russian online casino portal


While RPGs are all well and good, sometimes you want something a bit more laid back, a game where it won’t matter if you take your attention away for a moment. Elvenar is a strategy and city-building game with a fantasy setting.

The gameplay involves completing quests, doing research and exploring. How much of each you do impacts the kinds of cities you can build and how many new locations you can access to build.

Jetpack Joyride

Jetpack Joyride is an endless runner that has the look and feel of a classic arcade game. Your goal is to get as far as you can against a constant stream of hazards and foes. It’s a great example of a beloved genre that sometimes gets overshadowed by more complex games.

I Love Hue

I Love Hue is one of the most relaxing gaming experiences you’ll find. The format is simple — reassemble images in the appropriate color gradient pattern. Some levels are harder than others, but with calming music and inspiring words between rounds, it’s impossible to get stressed out while playing. A great way to reset after a long day.

Draw Something

Draw Something is the mobile equivalent of the classic drawing party game Pictionary. Draw Something adds a bunch of features to make the game easier and faster moving. The drawer can use multiple colors in their drawing (and erase wonky lines), which is a huge step up from a simple black marker. The guesser can see the word being drawn and is given the number of letters in the word.

Among Us

Among Us became an instant sensation when it was released and it’s easy to see why. The social deception game has a simple premise — one player is secretly an imposter trying to kill the other players without being caught, while the rest of the players have simple tasks to complete. It’s a fun way to test your deduction — or sneaking — skills.

Scrabble Go

Word games are one of the more popular genres of mobile games, especially among those who don’t usually play video games. Scrabble Go is an updated version of the classic board game.

One of the best things about this game is that you can play against the computer or against your friends. That means you can practice against the computer and then surprise your friends with your amazing spelling skills!

Color Road!

Color Road! is a high-speed puzzle game that has a simple concept but is really enjoyable. The goal of the game is to roll a ball down a road while hitting balls of the same color and avoiding ones that are different colors. What makes it exciting is that your ball changes color regularly, the other balls are moving, and the road picks up speed the longer you play!
