Tetris Blitz: 2016 Edition

You just can’t beat this classic game of block stacking! Not only is it addicting, but this version offers other features to challenge you.

There is a time-limited mode you can use to play quick sessions, a Frenzy mode that lasts only as long as you clear lines back-to-back, and daily challenges.

If you’re looking for a simple game to pass the time, stacking rows of blocks seems like a pretty good choice.


In this simple puzzle game, you swipe the screen to move blocks into each other and fuse them together. It’s incredibly addicting to try and get a higher score and create the elusive 2048 block.

Because of its simplicity in appearance and gameplay, this would be a great game to pass the time.

Break Liner

Tap the screen, break the correct colored lines, and survive long enough to reach the next level. With great visuals and sound, you’ll want to keep playing for hours, especially since the game amps up the difficulty with each level.

Flow Free

This one’s another puzzle game where you slide across the screen to connect color lines. This version comes with an alternative Timed Trial mode, pitting you against the clock. With over 150 levels, this game will keep you occupied while you travel.

Geometry Dash Lite

An action platformer with a challenging twist: stick to the beat if you want to survive. This version comes with a level building feature, letting players share and experience new challenges. The soundtrack you must sync lends to the addiction of the game.

This game’s great for an on-the-go gamer, the appeal mostly coming from wanting to beat your best score.

Not only are the listed games fun and easy to play, they all have the nice ability to make time shorter on long commutes. Give them a try and see how fast the time will fly!
