Pascal's Wager (on iOS) is a Dark Souls-like game with great ambitions and a must-have title if you like playing on iOS. Beware though, for handling reasons, it's best to play it with a controller. Find the dark RPG Pascal's Wager on Appstore for 7.99 euros.

eternium mobile game hack'n slash

On the other hand, if you enjoy beating up monsters, you should think about getting a hack'n slash. No question of dying like in Dark Souls, but rather of eliminating entire shordes of enemies without flinching. So Eternium seems to me to be a good option for you.

Fans of Torchlight 3 or Diablo, you won't be confused. Eternium also offers Hack'n slash but on Android and iOS for free.

Kingdom Rush is a tower defense mobile game, which means it is best suited to patient players who like strategy. In fact, it was so successful that it was also released as a board game by Lucky Duck Games following a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

Check it out for free on Android or iOS. And, if you prefer the apocalypse theme, try a good old Plants vs Zombies, also free.

And that's it, that's the end of our top mobile games for confinement. As you may have noticed, these are exclusively single player games. I'll try to do one for multiplayer mobile games next time, so you can play with friends too!

Yaya Yaya would never have spent a single cent on a mobile game. At least, that's what the legend says.
