Looking for some game recommendations to play on my Galaxy S10.


My preferences are:


  • Premium (paid) games.  e.g. no ads or in-app purchases
  • Puzzle/logic games.  e.g. a good Sudoku recommendation would be good
  • Simple, but well polished.  (not looking for AAA graphics-intensive action games).



Here's a shot of my currently installed games:

Even if you have a recommendation that doesn't match my preferences I'd be keen to hear what games you're playing.

Not really what you have indicated you'd like based on what you are already playing, but Clash of Clans is my favourite mobile game (by some margin).

I got hooked on Torn City a while back now.

I play on Android and PC.

It's a text based crime game, you can spend real money, but it is totally playable without.

The missus used to play clash of clans of something like it, now she plays Torn.

I play Juice Jam, its just a Candy Crush clone. I started just for brain exercise. BUT, its very good, you need to think, strategise, plan ahead. the hard levels can be HARD. Im at level 2026, so this is keeping me interested. Many I introduced gave up its too hard.

Stardew Valley on mobile is good.

Recursion: See recursion.
“It is important not to let the perfect become the enemy of the good, even when you can agree on what perfect is. Doubly so when you can't. As unpleasant as it is to be trapped by past mistakes, you can't make any progress by being afraid of your own shadow during design.”

I play _very_ few mobile games. One of the few is Hive, an app version of the (no) board game. Similar type of strategy game to chess, but a full game only takes about 5-10 minutes.


I only installed it to figure out how to play the IRL equivalent (my kids usually beat me, and its not due to sandbagging), but it has slowly graduated to my home screen where it remains.
