While gaming is always fun, some of us can’t accommodate it into our busy lifestyles. Games like Call of Duty: Mobile and PUBG Mobile are time-intensive and competitive and aren’t the ideal choice for anyone just looking to have some fun while taking a quick snack break. This is why casual games are making a lot of noise! Their simplicity makes it easy to hop into a quick game to relax before you get back to work and can be a great companion to quickly destress you.
Here’s a list of the top 10 casual games for Android and iOS platforms:
