What Are The Most Played Smartphone Games?

If we just used our phones for making calls, sending texts and replying to emails, we would certainly be a much more boring bunch than we are right now.

We need entertainment on our smartphones, and if it isn’t coming from music, video or pictures, where is it coming from?

Gaming is quickly becoming one of the biggest global markets, making more money than most films over recent years, and that’s translated to our smartphones as well.

We all remember snake don’t we? Well now we’re seeing games like that dominate our smartphones, but which ones are being played most?

Flappy Bird

There has obviously been a lot of media popularity around Flappy Bird, with its unheard of flight to the top of the iOS and Android rankings, right down to its crash into obscurity after it was pulled by its creator.

This however does not stop it being one of the most addictive games we’ve ever seen or played.

The aim of the game is pretty simple, fly the bird through a fairly simple series of never ending obstacles.

But this isn’t as easy as it seems, and has brought up anger, joy and even tears for some smartphone gamers who are unable to cope with the games tremendous difficulty.

Candy Crush

If you have a Facebook account, you will definitely know all about Candy Crush, with thousands of players sending Facebook invites to help improve their own gaming experiences.

Of course this does have an adverse effect on many who don’t play the game, leading some users to actually delete some friends off Facebook after repeated barrages of invites.

The game itself involves matching three items in a line to clear them and gain points, all with a time limit.

It’s the most played Facebook game, and is now right at the top of the smartphone market as well, so it’s proven pretty popular to say the least.

Angry Birds

Who hasn’t heard of Angry Birds?

It’s a very simple concept; you catapult birds, which are obviously angry for some reason, at some unassuming pigs that are in a series of different stacked planks.

The aim is to kill all of the pigs using as few birds as possible, and has proved to be an incredibly addictive system.

Doodle Jump

Fancy seeing just how high you can get a doodle using a series of moving platforms without falling back to earth? Well Doodle Jump is the game you’re after.

Whilst it starts off easy, the difficulty gets ramped up as your height increases, with enemies and faster moving platforms becoming common after just a minute or so of play.

Of course it all sounds easier than it is, so if you haven’t played it already, why not give it a try?

Words with Friends

Like Scrabble, but on your phone or tablet. That’s all you get with Words with Friends.

But thanks to the games social media capabilities, you can play a game with anyone on your Facebook friends list or a random player if you’re a bit of a Billy no-mates!

Like Scrabble, you get a certain number of points per letter, and certain areas on the board offer extra points for words and letters.

It might not be an original idea, but who doesn’t love a reworked classic?

There are plenty more games out there, so go and have an explore! You might even find some smartphone versions of GTA!


Street Talk

Interesting that when a game is too difficult it got pulled by its creator; maybe that one will be back after dropping the difficulty a wee bit. Thanks for a good overview of the most played smartphone games!
