Group test: what's the best mobile game?

The best phone games you can play

PC Advisor reviews the best phone games you can buy.

5. Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land remains very much in need of a major update or two, but even so it's one of the finest, meatiest iOS games of recent times. Highly recommended.

 

4. Stick Cricket for Android

Addictive and simple, but with enough challenge and complexity to keep even the most ardent players interested. Stick Cricket is everything a casual game should be, and the Android app rocks. It's not quite as polished as the iPhone version, but it is plenty good enough for us.

3. Infinity Blade II

Infinity Blade II is the perfect sequel, keeping and expanding almost everything that was great about its predecessor.

2. Angry Birds Space

Angry Birds Space is a proper sequel that opens up genuinely new possibilities. Not every level quite lives up to the new mechanic's promise, but there's a huge amount to like here - and no doubt there will be plenty of levels added in free updates.

1. Draw Something by OMGPOP

Since there's a free version of Draw Something, there's no excuse to not download it immediately. Plenty of your friends are bound to be playing it, so as long as you've got a Facebook account, you'll be able to instantly see those who are. We can't be sure just how long Draw Something will remain popular, but for now, it's a must-have.
