When I reviewed PUBG Mobile, I did enjoy it but I found faults with the controls – I also commented that I wouldn’t be keeping it because it wasn’t my kind of game. But after I finished the review, I played it in my free time and became obsessed. It’s incredibly competitive and super fun to play with real players – there is even an option to message so you can even make casual gamer friends!

There are many games on the app store that are based around golf but nothing compares to Golf Clash. I love the fact you can join teams, play with Facebook games and buy your own personalized balls.

Cooking Craze

Best Fiends is one of those addictive games that you just can’t put down. I love playing it when I’m chilling and having a cup of tea in the evening.

Android Link

Company: Glu Games Inc

If you have somewhere to be, I’d give Restaurant DASH: Gordon Ramsay a miss. I found myself playing it for longer than socially acceptable.

Epic Seven

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Smilegate Megaport

Genre: Role-Playing, Anime

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

Epic Seven offers a growing list of heroes to quench an epic anime thirst!  This casual app has changed how I thought RPGs should be done on the phone or tablet!

Aquapark.io

Aquapark.io Rating: 3/5

Draw It

Draw It Overall Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Kwalee

Genre: Puzzle,Indie Games

Rated: 4+

My favorite thing about Draw it was the fact that you can play with people all over the world. As I’m not the best at drawing, it was a great way to embarrass myself, that’s for sure!

21 Blitz

21 Blitz Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Tether Studios

Genre: Games, Skillz Games

Rated: 12+

Show off your skills for a chance at real money!  This casual app won’t be going anywhere until I win a tournament prize!

Dice Mage 2 Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Tapinator, Inc.

Genre: Games

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

Let RNG guide you destiny with this casual app.  If you are looking for action and alot of randomness, keep Dice Mage 2 nearby at all times.

Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links

Yu-Gi-Oh! Rating: 5/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Konami

Genre: Games, Card Battle

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

This casual app brings back all the epic Yu-Gi-Oh matches I’ve witness.  While there’s menus galore, the collection system is superior to many card games today.

The Deletes

So maybe some of these casual apps are getting a bad rap.  Nonetheless, here’s just a few casual apps that where fired from being apps on my phone.

House Flip

House Flip Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: fun-gi

Genre: Role-playing

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

House Flip wasn’t for me as there wasn’t enough substance to the game. Upon downloading it, I thought that you could decorate the houses from scratch but you can only pick from 3 designs.

The Wolf: Online RPG Simulator

The Wolf: Online RPG Simulator Rating: 2/5

iOS Link

Android Link – Not Available

Company: Swift Apps

Genre: FightingRPGSimulation

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

Although I enjoyed the graphics for The Wolf, the game was too childish for me and is definitely aimed at younger kids. I also didn’t really understand the gameplay.

Jelly Shift

Jelly Shift Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: SayGames

Genre: Strategy

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

Jelly Shift was a super addicting game, however, it just didn’t have enough substance for me to keep it on my phone!

Golf Rival

Golf Rival Rating: 2/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Rein Technology

Genre: Golf Games

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

As mentioned in the review, Golf Rival was ridiculously similar to Golf Clash and I just didn’t see a point in keeping it if I already have the exact same game on my phone!

Dr. Mario World

Dr. Mario World Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Nintendo

Genre: Puzzle

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

I had high hopes for Dr. Mario World but as it is just your standard match-3 game with Super Mario’s face slapped on it, I wasn’t impressed.

King of Crabs

King of Crabs Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Robot Squid

Genre: MMORPG

Rated: 9+

Offers in-app Purchases

While this was a great idea starting off, you get eaten by higher level bots, then by higher level players.  Sometimes in that order.

Battle Destruction

Battle Destruction Rating: 1/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: PENGPENG QUIO

Genre: Battle Royale

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

Too much of a Fortnite clone, and a bad one at that!

Highway Heat

Highway Heat Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Bite Size Games

Genre: Racing

Rated: 9+

Offers in-app Purchases

Awesome game and concept, but after a few hundred runs, boredom sets in.

Boom Pilot

Boom Pilot Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Oddrok Oy

Genre: Shoot ’em up!

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

Initially, I was excited about boom Pilot, but most of that was fizzled into a “meh.”  Being strapped for space also helped Boom Pilot’s departure.

Marshmello Music Dance

Marshmello Music Dance Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Gamejam Co.

Genre: Music

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

Marshmello Music Dance is great if you’re a fan of him, but it wasn’t for me!

Crush ’em All

Crush ’em All Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Godzliab

Genre: Idle RPG

Rated: 9+

Offers in-app Purchases

Crush Them All has a very strong introduction, but sadly it fell in line with other uninspiring Idle Games.

Party.iO

Party.IO Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: DIGIART INVESTMENT LTD, Indie Games

Genre: Games

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

Party.iO offers a quick free for all to see who’s the biggest!  After a while the grind just gets too boring.

Slot Riches

Slot Riches Rating: 5/5

iOS Link

Android Link: Unavailable

Company: Spark City Co, Limited

Genre: Casino Games

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

I’m always torn when it comes to Casino Games.  I love the lights, but when the coin is gone, so am I.  There just wasn’t enough free gold in this casual app to keep it from being deleted.

Heroes Auto Chess

Heroes Auto Chess Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Tap2PlayLLC

Genre: Games, Board Games

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

As happy as I was when i found it, I was just a quickly disenchanted by all the bugs in the game.  This casual app has potential, but not while Hearthstone has it’s new battlegrounds

Elder Scrolls:  Blades

Elder Scrolls: Blades Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Bethesda

Genre: Role-Playing

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

The Hype for an Elder Scrolls game on your phone was blown up to an unsatisfying level as I was able to get into the beta on this casual app.  While it can be fun, it’s nothing like Skyrim.

Shadow of Death

Shadow of Death Overall Rating: 4/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company:  Vietnam Zonmob Technology JSC

Genre: Hack N Slash, RPG

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

This Hack n Slash didn’t slash enough for me in the right direction.  With a rather daunting grind ahead for any new player, it’s a hell of a grind that feels more tedious than rewarding.

Power Hover Cruise

Power Hover Cruise Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Oddrock Oy

Genre: Games, Racing Games

Rated: 4+

Offers in-app Purchases

This casual app offers a good beat with some challenging levels, but sadly the bots couldn’t Power Hover over boredom.

Rangers of Oblivion

Rangers of Oblivion Rating: 3/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: YOUZU GAMES HONGKONG LIMITED

Genre: MMORPG

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

Rangers of Oblivion offers a Monster Hunter experience on your phone or tablet!  While this casual app eventually led me to buying Monster Hunter World, the feeling didn’t last.  Mostly due to controls, but still a great casual experience for anyone looking to try Monster Hunter for free!

Monopoly Slots

Monopoly Slots Rating: 2/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Phantom EFX

Genre: Casino Games

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

While I was really hoping to have some kind of mobile Monopoly experience.  Sadly this was not it.  Stingy dailies and tight slots.

Another Eden:  The Cat Beyond Time and Space

Another Eden Rating: 5/5

iOS Link

Android Link

Company: Wright Flyer Studios

Genre: Role-Playing, Turn Based Combat

Rated: 12+

Offers in-app Purchases

This casual app almost didn’t make it to the list.  Unfortunately, we are here talking about it.  What really drew me into this causal app was the story and development team that created Chrono Trigger.  The gameplay becomes stale after a while.  It could be my preference.

Out of all of the deletes, this one might find a way back on my phone at a later date!
