1. Thimbleweed Park

This game's creators Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick created classic adventure games such as Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion; so you know it will be excellent. Your time with Thimbleweed Park agents Ray and Reyes uncovering an increasingly bizarre mystery in small-town America; though in total five characters (including an amusing clown living alone in disused circus) may be under your control at once - writing clever but puzzles even smarter; some may require multiple character switches or objects but when finally cracked you feel like an intellectual prodigy while its relatively open world gives plenty of challenges that never leave you standing!

2. Call of Duty Mobile Battle Royale (FRS)

Call of Duty Multiplayer Game offers flexible controls and an expansive roster of modes, drawing heavily from its previous entries in the franchise such as Nuketown. Battle Royale remains enjoyable thanks to helicopters to fly and plenty of airdrops to claim; while touchscreen shooting works remarkably well; within an hour you should be hitting headshots without issue! Online connection remains stable; when one round ends another begins almost instantly as well; leaving no time between rounds other than attaching any new scopes you unlocked for your snipers if that becomes an option!

3. Thumper on Apple Arcade

Thumper is an engaging rhythm game which challenges your equilibrium to its very limits. A relentless journey into hell awaits, never wanting you to settle comfortably until you beg it off. Control a metal beetle as it speeds along an obstacle-laden track scurrying over obstacles and around corners in time to the beat; one mistimed tap can end your lift ride! What sets Thumper apart from other rhythm games is not its flawless touch controls but rather its overwhelming atmosphere: music rumbles and screeches while tentacles flail in the background while red eyes stare from beyond - every level completed comes with relief that only comes after beating that level's relief is truly welcome relief!

4. Machinarium

by Amanita Design stands as one of our generation's finest point-and-clicks, seamlessly transitioning to touchscreen control using touchscreen interface. Controls are responsive and the mobile interface easy to understand; its grungy, unforgiving world with all its rusting metal and mechanical contraptions is beautifully drawn and creates an immediate sense of place; just by looking around you'll begin empathizing with little robot protagonist, searching desperately for his lady-robot love in this harsh landscape - clever two tier hint system will assist players during play through.

Super Hexagon is one of those games that brilliantly implements its simple concept - moving a cursor through an ever-rotating tunnel of shapes - flawlessly. Each shape contains an opening whereby moving your cursor will avoid destruction while continuing to enjoy its rockin' techno soundtrack. Starting slow but quickly becoming manic; screen tilts, colors flashing rapidly, shapes speedily approaching you until eventually they take you out completely and you find it impossible not to give just one more go (okay maybe two!). It's impossible not having just one more go... okay maybe two?

6. Fortnite

You might associate Fortnite with console and PC play, but millions of people also play it on mobile; each time you login you are instantly matched up with 99 other players who wish to kill you! Although touchscreen controls may not provide as smooth gameplay as controllers or mice, you're still accurate enough to quickly erect walls and stairs with just one tap of your fingertip. Sound cues indicating nearby footsteps provide additional depth perception; making this experience truly engaging! This game may favor higher-end phones, but you're free to give it a go and see how well it runs on any device you own. When finally outwitting an opponent in that tense 1-on-1 showdown it all seems worth your while.

Pocket Camp may not match up to Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Android in terms of immersive fun, but it still makes for a pleasant distraction on Android devices. Fishing, bug hunting, picking fruit and designing your camper van all offer relaxing ways to pass time before its next major release - with every activity having its own space suitable for short touchscreen play sessions. Everything feels gentle with no reminders to invest in Nook loans using any real money you may possess and visiting friends' campsites being an option too! Log on each day, potter around and expand your camp until eventually it feels like your virtual home away from home on Android!

8. Reigns: Her Majesty

Would you rule as an honest queen or corrupt ruler bent on subjugating everyone to her will? Take Reigns - the King equivalent -- for a spin to find out! Reigns (aka Tinder meets text adventure) allows players to swipe left or right to make decisions regarding how you govern; icons at the top of your screen keep tabs on church, army and people relations: don't neglect these as any misstep will get peasants up in arms quickly! Reigns is full of surprises up its royal sleeves while its writing remains consistently amusing - as long as dark humor prevails and beheadings remain.

9. Pokemon Go Our childhood fantasy come to life, Pokemon Go places tiny creatures all across the real world for you to capture them all and complete an ongoing goal: Catch 'em all. Since its initial launch, this app has advanced considerably; nowadays you can find five generations of Pokemon just by leaving your door! Weather influences which creatures spawn during different parts of the day or year and Gym battles, raids, TM upgrades and special evolution items provide something new each day - becoming a Pokemon master will become your excuse to walk.

10. Alphabear: Words Through Time

Alphabear was an adorable puzzle game featuring tiles placed onto a board to form words, clearing space for your army of bears to roam freely in. Letters gradually appeared; faster you used them in words, the higher your score was; its bears were adorable while its mechanics deceptively clever. Alphabear: Words Across Time continues these traditions while offering some new features which improve upon its predecessor.
