    Default Fave Game Apps ?

    So now I have this new phone to replace my 7 year old one and can play games on it.

    Discovered Amanita's adventure games and enjoying my first pick: Botanicula. Charming and fun!

    How about you, any favorites?

    The (possibly an app?) that came with my phone has a few that I don't suck at: Monkey Jump and Alien Switch.

    There's a separate one for anagrams. Uncomplicated, waiting-in-the-car games.

    I have Backgammon on my phone. Old school but fun nonetheless.

    I no longer have gaming apps on my phone. Although it's not as popular as it used to, Plant vs Zombie is still my favorite game app.

    I enjoyed that but even moreso Machinarium.

    These two don't take very long to complete but they are beautiful and serene: Monument and Monument 2.

    The only game app that I have on my phone is DroidFish, the app version of the famous Stockfish - "the strongest open-source conventional chess engine in the world." Not for the faint of heart!

    My husband has that on his computer. He's a chess player, too.

    Boom Beach, Plants vs Zombies because it works offline too, and a space flight combat sim called Star Combat.

    I have fallen into the abyss, but they're still stoopid games like Bubble Pop and Cool Goal (you get to destroy multiple palm trees, snowmen, and goalies).

    Latest. I went desktop and bought Disco Elysium over on Steam. It’s an individual RPG that I really can’t compare to anything else. So far, my character has sobered up (some) and located his other green lizard skin shoe.

    Plague, Inc. is a perennial favorite here. With your background, VO, I think you'd find it quite engaging.

    Disco Elysium is on my wishlist, but probably for next winter at this rate! I only really take time to play games in winter, and this year has been Pokemon Sword and Octopath Traveller (am enjoying a lot) on the Switch and an as-yet-untouched copy of No Man's Sky for PC. Oh, and Transistor - I've only played to the first save point, but it is intriguing and I like the half-turnbased battle system so far.

    Eagerly awaiting Biomutant, again over on Steam. They keep pushing back the launch date.
