4. MONSTER BLADE
Free-to-play RPG games are a popular fixture and app developer Nubee has quite a hit on their hands. Nubee says that in less than a month, the app has garnered over 26,000 favourable reviews.
Play-wise, it's a lot like others in its genre - lots of beasts to kill, loot to acquire and friends can help you out along the way.
If you're the type who fancies wiling away the hours killing monsters on your smartphone or tablet, Monster Blade might just whet your appetite.
The graphics are pretty high-quality but also high-bandwidth so make sure you're on WiFi when you're downloading the game!
More after the break...
Trying to be cute, the makers of Perx made a play on the word 'perk' to come up with this reward card app. Instead of stuffing your wallet full of all the reward cards acquired from your most-frequented outlets, leave them at home and install Perx instead.
It's a nifty solution to all those reward cards shoppers keep accumulating and the company posts frequent deals and offers to encourage people to download the app.
Of course, it helps that Perx is free, no purchase required unlike those reward cards in your collection.
6. PUZZLE TROOPER
You feel like something more casual, not as uncool as sudoko but not as time-intensive as Call of Duty yet still have guns (sort of)?
Puzzle Trooper has you marching with your team to engage the enemy by shooting at them.
But no, you don't need to aim. Just flick your finger through a path of variously coloured orbs to hit your targets and rack up points.
A simple, fun way to pass the time.
