Default Which game do you play the most on your mobile device?

Currently hooked on Need for Speed: Most Wanted on my iphone 5. I was also hooked on NBA Jam for a while. Also spent tons of time on Dead Trigger on my Nexus 7.

I tend to stick to simple games on my phone. Angry Birds Star Wars, WOPR, Pinball.

I was really into Cut the Rope. (never really got into Angry Birds). Then it was Dungeon Hunters or some Gauntlet style game. Then it was Civ Revolution. And now it's one of those games like Icarium where it's a MMO rts thing. There's probably 10-15 other games that I've played for a week or so but the ones I listed are the ones I was hooked on for a month.

I'm surprised there aren't more quality turn based games for mobile devices. And by quality I mean non-flash game like.

By turn-based you mean something like Civ or Fire-Emblem type games? Or.... I guess Words with Friends is a turn based game.

I don't actually play any game. When I bought the Note I expected myself to play a lot, but after trying some games I've been driven off by the horrible control systems.
So ended up using the device mostly for reading. I love the samoled screen for books.

Ha, definitely more like Civ. When they announced the Total War game for mobile I was really stoked, then I saw the piece of crap that it turned out to be.

We need more complex, in depth and well funded games on mobile devices. Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition is a great example, but the groundwork for that was laid down many years ago.

Fire Emblem would be awesome on a tablet. Anything like this currently available?

Carcasonne (the iOS version, not the Android one which is much worse) - which is a tile-based boardgame conversion.

A turned based game would be cool. Something like Advance Wars on the DS.

Battle For Wesnoth is a pretty good turn based strategy game for those looking for a little more in depth gaming experience. It also has a ton of content.

Man I'm trying to work here, and now I'm stuck browsing the games section. Bards Tale is free today for iOS.

Words with friends is my go to game.

For single player games, I really liked tower defense games like GeoDefense.
iOS https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/geod...305608325?mt=8
or free version https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/geod...306804246?mt=8

WP http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/st...2-78e7d1fa76f8

Don't see it for android closest thing is a clone called hexdefense made by someone else https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...xdefense&hl=en

Monopoly...

I usually buy a phone, start a Monopoly game, and then keep it there in memory for all of eternity until the next phone refresh.

I hate playing anything other than simple games on phones. The controls just kill it for me.

Checkers, FIFA Soccer, Mancala and Marathon (though I am really getting frustrated that I still have a lot of trouble with the controls in Marathon).

I use to play a lot of Monopoly, Risk, Toobz, NBA Jam and Madden, too, but not so much anymore.
