Bizarrely Addictive Smartphone Games That’ll Have You Button-Mashing For Hours

Games on smartphones have come on leaps and bounds over the last few years. It’s fair to say that most people were totally blown away when Grand Theft Auto 3 came to the mobile space, complete with all the 3D graphics and richness of the original. The era of mobile gaming had well and truly arrived.

After that came a bunch of new games, including Candy Crush, a game so addictive that it hooked former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, who perhaps should have been focusing more on keeping Britain in the EU.

The following isn’t a definitive list, but these are certainly some of the most addictive smartphone games out there right now.


Did you ever hear about the conspiracy theory that Tetris was made by the Soviets to enslave the West? Well, Tetris might have a successor. It’s called Drop7, and it’s a puzzle game designed to help you cope with your mindless trip on the subway. The idea of the game is to drop numbered discs that match the number of discs in any column or row. Good for people who want to train their brains.

Puzzle And Dragons

Have you ever wished that Candy Crush had a few more dragons to fight? Well, it’s appears that the developers of Puzzle And Dragons were listening intently to customers like you. Puzzle and Dragons is a blend of Candy Crush-like puzzles with Pokemon monsters, making for an epic hybrid experience. Players of the game say that they can’t put it down. It’s casual enough for anybody to pick it up and have a go. But like all the most addictive games, it has depth and scope that’ll attract even the most hardcore players, and keep them playing long term.

Dungeon Keeper

Dungeon Keeper is an old-school classic, now having new life breathed into, thanks to the rise of the mobile gaming platform. It’s one of the many Clash of Clans Games Online, with the idea being to build a swanky dungeon to attract minions so that you can fight and defeat the noble knights.



Treat your ever-hungry bile demons to giant hatcheries, where they can gorge themselves on chickens all day and night. And build torture chambers to attract “mistresses of pain” to your dungeon, powerful allies in the fight against the local lord and his band of goodly knights. Dungeon Keeper is a game that’ll keep you hooked for hours, thanks to the mixture of incredible gameplay, dark storytelling, and dungeon difficulty.




If you played and enjoyed the marble shooting game, Zuma, you’ll love Sparkle. The idea is to keep popping orbs until you save the world. According to Touch Arcade, it’s one of the most highly polished games out there, and a total blast to play. One user says that he played the game for three hours every day on his commute to and from work since 2008: now that’s commitment even a World of Warcraft addict would struggle to match. Sounds like a great way to beat the tedium.
