As much as I love to play games, it’s far more difficult as an adult to find the time for in-depth, long-form gameplay sessions. This means I often use my commute to play on my phone. These Android games need to be fun, because I quickly drop games that aren’t, and they need to be experiences I want to return to time and time again.
Star Trek Timelines
I recently posted about why I’m still playing Star Trek Timelines daily after two years and it’s worth a read if you’re interested in how Free To Play games retain players: See it here
Essentially, if you’re a Star Trek fan and want to see who really wins in a fight between Picard and Kirk, give it a try.
I love maps and trains, especially the London Underground, so a simplified train line management game is ace. It’s very challenging, but the difficulty curve is lovely and I keep coming back to it.
Reigns: Her Majesty
A game with great humour, near endless replayability and simple Tinder-like gameplay.
I’m just getting started, but it’s a great follow up to the original so far.
A roguelike hole-in-one minigolf game. Beautifully simple gameplay with some interesting mechanics and player created levels. Wonderful for a quick break.
