Playing Fallout Shelter on my tablet. I had been playing Sim City, but it gets boring at end game
I am still immensely satisfied with Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja. Halfbrick makes some awesome games.
I still love to play Angry Birds, a great game. I spend most of my spare time to play.
At this point, I think it'd be fair to call myself a mobile gaming connoisseur. I have played hundreds of mobile games (free and not-so-free). The most interesting aspect of mobile gaming for me is the diversity of game interactivity. Generally speaking, on a console, you are limited to a controller. On a PC, a keyboard & mouse or a controller. But with a smartphone, you have two handed touch inputs in landscape mode, one handed touch in portrait mode, tilting/steering thanks to an accelerometer, and the less often used microphone and camera. This allows for widely different experiences using the same device.
I bring this up because qualifying what a good game is on a smartphone becomes much more subjective. Battleheart is an incredible action RPG, but only suitable for two-handed play. Skiing Yeti Mountain is one of the best tilt games around, but demands your full attention and not necessarily suitable for play on a crowded subway train. Then you have games like Monument Valley that are just all around perfect.
PS I'm aware that motion sensing exists in modern console controllers (dual shock 3 & 4 off the top of my head), but has never enjoyed the same widespread use as on phones.
You know... there's a new platform coming out for retro gaming. I've tried sending it to Tested but they haven't responded to my email. It's called Grue and it lets users play interactive fiction games via voice input. Literally a conversation with your apple watch, android wear, or smartphone.
@Nomnaut: That's because:
1.) We made Grue
2.) We have no budget to promote it
3.) Semi-public beta hasn't even properly begun.
That said, would you care to be a part of the semi-public beta? I've sent info to Tested and a ton of others but replies have been slow in coming. We're happy to send APK's and Test Flight access to members of Tested, though! Hell, we developed Grue in a Makerspace in Knoxville, TN.
I'm addicted to Fallout Shelter myself. I'm at 200 dwellers and am now working on maxing out all my dwellers on all their stats.
I still love to play angry birds :D
