Great games can come in small packages.

Square Enix has experimented with Final Fantasy on mobile devices for a few years now with varying success, but with Mobius Final Fantasy, they finally nailed it offering turn-based combat and an addictive evolving job system.

Coming out of no where a few years ago, Fallout Shelter offers a quality sim experience backed up with a AAA-IP.

Yeah Super Mario Run is a runner type game which usually only exists on mobile, but it’s a damn good one though with that Nintendo charm and shine that cannot be replicated.

Another of Ubisoft’s excellent GO games, Lara Croft GO is a winner of numerous of industry. Its turn based combat will have you carefully navigating Lara through another adventure, planning out a strategy as you go.

If that’s not your jam, try one of the earlier ones instead.
