Rolling Sky

To start off, we have a game that’s great for all ages. All you have to do is drag the ball on the screen left and right to avoid obstacles. It’s a simple concept, especially for mobile games, but it’s intense, quick and addicting. Nice visuals, simple controls and innovative levels bring interesting obstacles to play, always keeping you on your toes. Overall, this is a nice and challenging time-waster.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

This one’s a little different. It’s a card game that requires strategic planning, creating a bit of a challenge for players in deciding what decks give them the best chance of winning. You can play against the computer or check out the Arena mode, where you fight against other players for a greater competitive challenge, if that’s more your style.

In addition to being big, the game already has a released expansion, Mean Streets of Gadetzan, which offers new cards and battle opportunities to make this card game even more irresistibly addicting.

Pocket Mortys

Fun humor, weird premise. If you’re a fan of the show, this will be a blast. Basically, it’s like Pokemon: catch, train and combine over 70 types of Mortys and battle against other Ricks for glory and prizes. You can craft items to help you in battles like healing serums. 

Just remember that it is an Adult Swim game, so it might not be suitable if you don’t like the humor of the show. Nevertheless, it’s a weird, creative battle game that provides loads of fun. 

Pokémon GO

Of course, if Pocket Mortys is too weird, but you still want to catch virtual things you can make fight each other, Pokemon GO is another good option. This monster-catching app was incredibly popular when it first released and, while it’s not as loud as it once was, the game is still incredibly enjoyable.

You can catch and level up your pokémon to fight, take over and defend gyms, which are located in real-world locations. It’s a good game when you are out for a short while or if you are a fan of the franchise.

Atsume Neko: Kitty Collector

The final game for our list is the incredibly laid back cat collector you can just check in on from time to time. Place food and toys to attract a wide range of friendly felines, each with their own personalities and mementos.

The fun of the game is in the surprise of what little kitties will visit your yard. There’s also a bit of a technical challenge in trying to collect the rarer cats and collect mementos from them. Its simple, cute graphics make this a nice game to relax with.

There you have it, five of the top-rated games available for Android.
