If slicing fruit is what you’re after, Fruit Ninja is the perfect game for you.

5. Hearthstone

Hearthstone is a card game set in the Warcraft universe. Using the cards that you have in your collected deck of characters, players are tasked with battling against their opponents and finding a strategy that works best for them. The charm is that any Warcraft player will recognize the characters, so will have an idea of what their special powers are. Despite first being released in 2013, the game is still played today and is continually updated by the developers.

6. Jetpack Joyride

If runner games are what you want, Jetpack Joyride is perfect for you. Playing as the fun but mysterious character Barry Steakfries, your task is to escape from the lab with your super powerful jetpack, avoiding any hazards that may come your way. With its simple controls and fast-paced gameplay, Jetpack Joyride is perfect for anyone looking for a quick adrenaline rush.

7. Fortnite

Fortnite is a battle royale-style game where players compete to be the final man (or woman) left at the end. It’s been around for a short while but has really taken off in popularity in recent years, with hundreds of millions of players now playing the game on a monthly basis. Although it’s free to play, if you really want to succeed, you’ll likely need to spend your hard-earned money on exclusive DLC packs.

Like Fortnite, PUBG is a battle royale genre mobile game that’s also available on consoles. PUBG seemed to become popular first but with both games being super popular, now and when they were first released, why not give them a try?

It’s a mobile simulation game that’s got all the charm that you’d expect from an Animal Crossing game, without the need to have an expensive handheld console. It’s been played and loved by millions, and we think you’d have great fun playing it.
