When winding down after a hectic day at work, it’s not uncommon for the average person to reach for their smartphone device and fire up a game. In fact, mobile gaming is a favored option for many people in the modern-day and represents a genuinely fun and entertaining product for people to tuck into.
In the past, mobile gamers have been fairly limited in terms of the type of games they could access. For example, when mobile phones first emerged, the only games people could play were incredibly basic titles like Snake and Tetris.
Classics in their own right, they certainly don’t compare with the products people are playing on both iOS and Android in 2022. Gamers are enjoying augmented reality releases like Pokemon Go, they’re discovering innovative live game show options like Spin a Win Live, and they’re enjoying an array of console-quality titles that are now regularly making the jump over to the mobile gaming sphere.
The options certainly don’t end there, though. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the top games for your smartphone device right now. All of the games featured are available for download on both iOS and Android unless stated otherwise.
A collectable card game from Blizzard, Hearthstone is particularly popular with World of Warcraft fans, but it’s also being enjoyed by people who aren’t necessarily a fan of it either. A free-to-play release, players are tasked with collecting their own distinctive cards as they aim to work their way through 10 hero classes. In order to be successful in Hearthstone, you’ll need to master strategic play and make sure that your deck of cards is capable of going up against your rivals.
Despite its release in 2018, Among Us is still one of the most popular mobile games around today. Tasked with rumbling the killer on a spaceship, the game is particularly popular with groups of friends and is a blast to play as you aim to uncover the murderer in the group. Whether you’re playing as an innocent player or as an imposter, you’ll enjoy this particular release. The game is free to play, too.

The title of the game says it all, really, but players are tasked with, well, building a boat in You Must Build a Boat.

Monument Valley 2
A visually pleasing title with plenty to offer in terms of providing a relaxing gaming experience, Monument Valley 2 is a pleasure to tuck into. An M.C. Escher-inspired puzzle product, players have the challenge of directing Ro and her daughter through a selection of tricky obstacles. Thanks to its stunning visuals and intriguing art style, Monument Valley 2 represents one of the most pleasurable mobile titles to session.
