Why we love this
  1. 1A fast-paced game with RPG elements that anybody will find incredibly easy to pick up and play
  2. 2Choose from eight unlockable characters, each with differing abilities and upgrade possibilities
  3. 3The bouncy music, which evolves with each new scene you reach, is highly memorable and hummable
Whether you love or hate the blocky graphics, you’ll be hooked after two seconds of gameplay as you cartwheel diagonally, squash enemies, and dodge traps in distinctly themed levels. You’ll need quick, strategic thinking and to stay on your toes, as later levels are rife with obstacles and unreasonably angry cavemen.

Why we love this
  1. 1Seriously polished graphics and animation make this the go-to for fans seeking a blockbuster arcade experience
  2. 2An excellent free-to-play model means you can progress without paying a cent
  3. 3You’re always improving, thanks to a straightforward but robust upgrade system
With spectacular visuals, a control scheme optimized for one-handed play, and classic top-down arcade action, Sky Force Reloaded is one of our favorite mobile shooters. The bullet hell-style gameplay is tough but never unfair; optional objectives ease the pain of replaying levels to earn “stars” for ship upgrades.

Why we love this
  1. 1This addictive, combat-free game puts you on a basketball court for some good-natured fun
  2. 2Richly colored pixel art brings the background — and your crowd-pleasing moves — to life
  3. 3Offline play makes this our new go-to when in airplane mode
There’s no tutorial, but tap once and you’ll instantly figure out how to play Bouncy Hoops: Score as many slam dunks as you can! Upgrades are purely cosmetic (the cannonball still bounces like a regular ol’ basketball), but prove a surprisingly strong motivator to aim high.

Why we love this
  1. 1Manipulate time with your movements in this innovative shooter
  2. 2Clean, stylized graphics and endearing animals make this a unique, non-violent take on the genre
  3. 3The relaxing audio blends forest and urban sounds for a pleasant and distinctive experience
The world stops moving when you do in this remarkable arcade game, and darkness is ever-encroaching — so you’ll need to keep your auto-firing bear on the go, avoiding penguin stampedes while blasting oncoming obstacles. Unlockable characters can be used for only a few turns each, but luckily, it’s easy to earn coins.

Fowlst

Offers in-app purchases
Why we love this
  1. 1Think Flappy Bird — but with an angry owl protagonist and dungeons full of sawblades and bullet-spraying devils
  2. 2The catchy chiptune music is as groovy as it is gloomy
  3. 3Unlockable skills create a unique sense of long-term progression and incentive to play
Fowlst is unapologetically challenging — yet somehow still gosh-darn adorable. While your first few games aren’t likely to last long, you can feed collected coins into permanent upgrades such as extra health and the peculiar power to shoot (er, lay) the questionably named “Egg Bombs.”
