Android, iOS Gaming on a High: Top 5 Obsessive Titles of All Time

If someone says that he or she hasn't ever spent countless hours tapping on their smartphones playing a game that too hard to let go, the person, as we reckon, is probably lying. We all play mobile-based games and then we end up playing them so hard that there comes a time when we eventually get bored and still cannot let go of it.

With the evolution of platform gaming - and the process of evolution has been pretty amazing - both new age platforms like Android and iOS have seen a major influx of mobile-based titles from a number of independent developers who haven't got much to offer in terms of visual output, which they then make up with gameplay mechanics.

So let's take a look at the top 5 most obsessive games that have engaged players like no others to date.

An instant tower defense classic, Plants vs. Zombies from EA actually set the standards for all the modern day tower defense games you come across for Android and iOS.

The objective was, and has always been, pretty simple and yet engaging. Your mission is to defend your home against the horde of undead making their way toward it. And your last line of defense is that immense garden in front of you with plants that possess various types of powers to counter the oncoming threat.

The game is available for both Android and iOS devices.

Never in the history of gaming has there been a game that actually drove its very creator to delete it since it was ruining his personal life. And while that created a lot of protest all over the world, while it served its time, the game was one of the most addictive downloads that even made fans cry on learning that it was deleted.

The one that brought all the craze to the fore-front, Angry Birds became an instant classic the day it was sent out for download.

The concept of shooting a couple of evil pigs with some birds using a sling shot may not sound that bright on paper, but once you get into this mind-racking puzzle, it's not that easy to come out of it. The game is still available for both Android and iOS.


Although the more than regular Facebook invitations for the game can be quite irritating at times, Candy Crush Saga has become a major download over a number of smartphones over the last few months. Whoever knew that a simple game of combining three colors could end up being so engaging.

The game is available still for both Android and iOS.

This one only set one objective in our minds: To attain the highest score possible without either being eaten by whatever that's following you or falling down the edges. And then when you eventually end up in either of the mentioned scenarios, you say to yourself "Maybe next time." and this keeps going on and on.

Temple Run is still up for grabs for both Android and iOS running devices.
