The App is free to play and will give you countless hours of enjoyment.
9. Word Cookies
A fun little diversion where you form words out of an existing set of letters, Word Cookies is reminiscent of games like Pressed for Words. There's a list of all the possible words you can make out of the letters, and you need to swipe your way through the letters to find as many words as you can to complete the stage. It's as addicting as it is delicious to look at, and a great way to spend any downtime while waiting with your phone on hand.
8. Garena AOV – Arena of Valor

If you're familiar with MOBAs, you'll quickly acclimate to the three-lane maps with obstacles and other features that make modern MOBAs so compelling. Matches take around 15 minutes and with the well-thought of controls it makes for great pocket-sized gaming on your phone that won't lose to a desktop MOBA.
7. Candy Crush Soda Saga
The amazing success of Candy Crush has spawned a new experience: Candy Crush Soda Saga! Join Kimmy on her juicy adventure to find Tiffi by matching candies to crush them in explosive fashion.

6. Clash Royale
This spinoff from Clash of Clans brings you to the Arena, where the Royales and other stalwarts from Clash of Clans come in to duel each other in a mad frenzy of real time head-to-head action as you try to smash each other's towers. As you play you'll collect more cards to unlock more troops, spells and defenses to aid you in your never-ending thirst for battle. The game feels like an innovative mix of a tower defense game turned into a duel against another player as you set up defenses and send out troops at the same time.
5. RULES OF SURVIVAL
Fans of Koushun Takami's Battle Royal or its more modern descendant, The Hunger Games, will feel right at home in Rules of Survival. This tense game played by up to 120 players in a massive desert island will need to rely on their ingenuity and skill to survive as poison gas and enemies close in. Only one can survive and you need to be at the top of your game to be the one to write the rules of survival.
4. Candy Crush Saga
The smash hit that is played by millions around the world needs little introduction, as its brand of candy/gem matching with limited moves has entertained countless people the world over.

3. Clash of Clans
Supercell's Clash of Clans is one of the most successful mobile games around, with a fantasy-based world of barbarians, wizards and monsters for you to marshal as you build your clan's village with structures and defenses to withstand any other player's attempts of conquest.
