6. Fallout Shelter
Originating on mobile, Fallout Shelter has since moved over to PC and console, but its smartphone version is just as enjoyable as it ever was. Set in the universe of the popular Fallout series, Fallout Shelter tasks you with managing your own vault. You’ll be building new rooms, assigning jobs, and generally keeping everything running ship-shape.
It’s the sort of game you’ll want to pop in on for 10 minutes or so, just to see how your Vault is getting on… although it’s easy to lose much more than just 10 minutes to it.
5. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers is the epitome of addictiveness. A 3D endless runner, your goal is to run along subway tracks, dodging trains and jumping atop them to see how far you can get. It’s incredibly good fun; the cartoony art style is hard not to love, and the simplistic swipe-left-and-right controls mean its hard to stop once you’ve started playing.
In fact, it’s been a while since I’ve done a bit of subway surfing myself. I might have to jump back in and set myself some new high scores.
