Five Mobile Games You Must Be Playing

Are you ready for some of the best brain scramblers for Windows, iOS, and Android phones?

If you think this is going to include Candy Crush on our list, you couldn’t be more wrong! We wanted to make this list a bit unique and wanted to offer you up some games you may not have heard about before.

While Candy Crush shows just how popular puzzle solving games are, we thought you would appreciate some new and challenging games for your phone.

We have chosen what we consider some of the best and all are readily available for your phone and will help to jump start your mind any day of the week. We have included links to the game in their respective store and indicate if the game requires in-app purchases with “IAP”.

Triple Town (IAP)

iOS / Android

Triple Town (IAP)

While this may be the oldest game on our list it is here for a reason! This is till one of the best! Triple Town requires you to build bigger and better towns by matching trees and houses. While there are in-app purchases they are not overly aggressive and it is a rather addicting game.

The Room Two

iOS / Android

The Room Two

This s the second brilliant game to come out of Fireproof Studios. In this game, your goal is to solve a rather cryptic tale by searching for on=screen items. These are incredibly challenging puzzles and the graphics are nothing short of beautiful.

Lara Croft Go (IAP)

iOS / Android / Windows Phone

Lara Croft Go

We all know how popular Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise is. In this mobile game, you get to enjoy that same excitement by having to solve various puzzles. While I realize Lara is a hit with many people. some still are not her biggest fans. So if you want to experience the thrill of this game you can take a look at Hitman Go, which is very similar.




This is an incredibly fun word game that is offered in 22 languages.

Each word that you come across is its own crossword puzzle that has been hidden in a picture. Will you be clever enough to solve all the words?

Once you have solved the word and letter will open, in time the entire puzzle will be revealed.You can find hints at pixwords help en.

This is a great free game that offers the player over 800 levels of fun and is sure to improve your vocabulary.

Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon


Spider Rite of the Shrouded Moon

This is the fascinating addition to the incredible Spider – The Secret of Bryce Manor. In this game, you are lurking through the home and spinning your web to catch tasty insects. In this game it is actually all about the storyline that will keep you entertained and coming back for more.
