Great mobile games for the plane?

melissadingmonmelissadingmon SquirrelSeattle, WARegistered User regular
For those of us who have to fly to Boston, what are some of the best mobile games that we can put on our devices? iOS, Android, Kindle, Windows Phone, 3DS, anything and everything!

I work on Fairway Solitaire Blast, so I'll be playing that quite a bit, but I want to have some diversity in case I get stuck on a level.

    For iPad I have Forbidden Island, Ticket to Ride, Small World and Pandemic also Scribblenauts, Qwirkle and Fluxx. Candy crush saga is pretty addictive.

    iPhone suggestions...

    Plants vs. Zombies 1 AND 2.

    A lot of people knock PvZ2 because it switched to the free-to-play (pay-to-win) format but you can easily play, win, and enjoy the game without spending any money. PvZ1 is an amazing value and has a ton of content without the annoying pay-to-win jazz.

    The Catan app by the USM publisher is also pretty solid!

    Surgeon Simulator is another good one for Ipad, also i think Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 comes out on mobile sometime in April hopefully before the 10th.

    Threes is a lot of fun, I've lost hours into that game. You can get a lot of the earlier Final Fantasy games for iOS, also.

    Other iOS games I can recommend having sunk way too many hours into them - Agricola, Le Havre, Summoner Wars, Ascension. These are all digital versions of tabletop games that I really like.

    I found that some of the FF games on the mobile didn't import well, like the controls are a little clunky. Also not sure if it happened to anyone else, but I kept losing my save file. For some reason it would never properly save when I close the game. I ended up getting a refund since I could never get past a certain point without losing my game.

    Mobile/iPad - PvZ 1 and 2 are enjoyable. 2 is a little more of a challenge, but you don't need to use any real money. Nuns Attack is pretty fun. I picked that up at the last PAX.

    3DS - Pokemon all the way!

    Pinny Pals - open to trading!
    Looking for Edith Finch Pin!

    I wish this topic were titled "Games on a Plane"!

    Golden opportunity missed.

    Also GTA III, VC and SA are on iOS and Andriod (much better played on tablet imho).
