This game is pretty self-explanatory: hunt dinosaurs for fun! It’s not exactly Jurassic Park, but it’ll do.
Everybody remembers that nerve-wracking game where picking the wrong block means the tower goes “timber”!
Sonic has been around since the early ’90s. Now almost 25 years later, he’s still running, jumping and turning himself into a powerful blue ball – this time to beat the clock and be the best.
The Assassin’s Creed series has taken gaming by storm. Play as a ruthless pirate, take on kingdoms and collect all the “booty.” Captain Jack Sparrow has nothing on this game.

There’s enough candy in this game to give cavities to every gamer on the planet! Match three of the same candies to move ingredients to the bottom of the screen, eliminate jelly, and more.
5. Stick Death
Google Play store calls this morbid game “a great and challenging puzzle kill game.” So death to the sticks! Poor sticks…
