Paper Toss
Probably the laziest game on our list, Paper toss is the kind of game when you have nothing to do, literally. As the name suggests, all you do is toss paper into a bucket with three variations in the distance between the paper and the bucket. The catch – there’s a fan blowing at varying speeds that will blow the paper away. This is a nice challenge, as it will keep you on your toes with your aim.

Ant smasher

Having been bitten by a bunch of ants as a child, this game is particularly satisfying to me. The game is very simple - kill all the ants on screen. Period! You have a variety of ants to smash and bees to be careful off. The game also gives you the ability to showcase your high score on global leaderboards. Take that you pesky ants!!

You can start smashing ants on your Android smartphone.

A cute and cuddly game, Cordy will remind you of the good old days when you sat in front of the idiot box and played Mario all day long. In the game, you don the role of Cordy, a little robot with a big job - to power up his world! As Cordy players run, jump, push, pull, lift, throw, bounce, swing, and hover through the puzzle platform game. The controls are simple and the game look cuddly cute.

You can download Cordy from the Google Play Store

Draw Something free

Ever played Pictionary as a child? It was fun wasn’t it? With the dawn of the smartphone era, a lot of our favourite puzzle games have translated on that little device in your pocket.

What gaming system is complete without a version of good old Tetris? For those of you that don’t know, Tetris was made in Russia way back in 1984 and has plagued virtually every system that can play games. The most addictive puzzle game has been remastered for the smartphones touchscreen and is a pleasure; especially since it will take you bake to the good old NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) days.

The gameplay hasn’t changed either. Slide, rotate, and drop your Tetriminos into place and create horizontal lines to clear space.
