Each console offers a massive selection of fun games for you to play, from your standard PC to your PlayStation or Xbox. And whether you agree or disagree, some people now consider mobile phones as consoles.
Although they might not fancy your preferences, mobile phones, like any other game consoles, can help you eliminate your boredom by playing games. Not to mention, you can always carry your phone around as it is also a necessity in modern times. This factor makes apps like iMessage games perfect for any dull moments. And if you are looking for more options, here are seven mobile games you can play during your free time.

Do you consider yourself a history buff? Do you enjoy different mythologies, tales, and epics from countries in the world? Do you also like anime? If you said yes, this mobile game might pique your interest! Fate/Grand Order, also referred to as FGO, is a tactics-based app filled with historical, mythical, literary, and cultural characters you can collect.
Developed by Lasengle and published by Aniplex, this 2015 Japanese mobile game is based on Type-Moon’s Fate/stay night franchise. In this game, you play as a member of the Chaldea Security Organization. You aim to stop extinction by collecting various people known as servants in history, mythology, and literature. Some names include classic Fate characters like Artoria and Gilgamesh to characters like Achilles and Jeanne d’Arc.
Maybe you enjoy music. Or perhaps, rhythm games are something you are fond of. Should you enjoy great music and gameplay, Rayark’s 2012 hit game Cytus is one you should consider downloading. Unlike the majority of rhythm games you might know, Cytus offers not only a great soundtrack and hours of playtime but also a fascinating in-game plot.
The plot of Cytus involves Vanessa, who lives in a future where robots with human memories are the only sentient beings left as a mysterious virus wipes out humanity. And because humans are robots, they have limited space for memory, and their emotions are in the form of music. Overall, Cytus is not just about great music but also about human identity.
Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector
If you want a relaxing game without an intriguing plot, challenging gameplay, or competitive fandom, the idle game is a genre you should try. And if you want a chill idle game that consists of getting pictures of adorable cats, Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector might be the mobile app for you. Developed by Hit-Point Co. Ltd. for iOS and Android, this 2014 game is the perfect laidback game for cat lovers and casual gamers.
This game has one objective: collect photos of cats visiting your home. To make them go to your place, you need to decorate your yard with toys, food, and furniture cats love. And when they leave, the cats will give you amounts of fish for you to buy more decorations. Beware of Tubbs, as he is notorious for devouring a whole serving of expensive cat food in one visit.
League of Legends: Wild Rift
Do you enjoy competitive games? Are you always searching for the thrill of joining a team and defeating opposing players? When you feel competitive during your break, MOBA, short for “multiplayer online battle arena,” is a genre that might satisfy your preferences. And when talking about MOBA, League of Legends: Wild Rift is a game you should not overlook.
Released in 2020, League of Legends: Wild Rift, also known as Wild Rift, is the mobile version of the 2009 Riot game exclusive for PC. And like its PC counterpart, Wild Rift encourages teamwork and cohesiveness to defeat the opposing team. The mobile game also has the same classical Summoner’s Rift map and classic champions like Ahri, Ashe, Jinx, Caitlyn, Vi, and many more.
Open world games are perfect for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in a different world. Game franchises like The Witcher, Batman: Arkham, Fallout, and The Elder Scrolls proved that you could enjoy this genre for many hours. And if you want an open-world game on your phone, miHoYo’s 2020 game Genshin Impact might satisfy your longing for adventures.
With elements almost similar to Nintendo’s 2017 game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Genshin Impact offers a massive open world and character selection for you to explore, unlock, and collect. In this game, you play as the Traveler in the world of Teyvat as you search for your sibling when a villainous “being” takes them away. You will then encounter a roster of characters, most playable, as you scour the world in its different regions, areas, and landscapes.
