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

  • Reviewed on: 5 February 12
  • RRP: £2.99
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

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

  • Reviewed on: 13 February 12
  • RRP: FREE - £1.79 for Pro Pack
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

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

  • Reviewed on: 5 December 11
  • RRP: £4.99 inc. VAT
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

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

2. Angry Birds Space

  • Reviewed on: 23 March 12
  • RRP: £1.99 on iPad; 69p on iPhone/iPod touch
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

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

  • Reviewed on: 20 April 12
  • RRP: £1.49
  • Rating: Rated 9 out of 10

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.
