6. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

One of the greatest and most expansive open-world action games of all time is available on Windows Phone, and even a decade later, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is still a blast. Set in the early '90s in Los Angeles, San Andreas finds you navigating a world of gang wars and strife as you cruise the city, explore CJ's story, and cause mayhem. It's not perfect with touch controls, but still plenty of fun.

7. Jetpack Joyride

Among endless time-wasters, Jetpack Joyride remains one of our absolute favourites. You control a man who's just stolen a jetpack, which rains down machine gun fire as it soars through the air, and your task is to escape the research facility as missiles and laser traps aim to take you down. There's no actual way out, of course, but the endless pursuit of a lengthier distance and leaderboard supremacy is irresistible.

8. Threes!

Easily one of the best puzzle games ever devised for a touch screen, Threes! is a simple game of addition that proves mind-bogglingly challenging before long. The basic task is to combine specific tiles in order to build larger and larger numbers, but every tile shifts when you swipe (if there's room to move), plus another tile is added. In other words, you'll need to constantly add to subtract, if you get our drift. It's brilliant.

9. Monument Valley

One of the most astounding games ever designed for small screens, Monument Valley is a puzzler that messes with your mind. You walk along walls and across paths that only connect via optical illusions, and explore stages that aren't physically possible yet make sense in this digital world.

It's terribly gorgeous and memorable too, and although bite-sized in nature, it's absolutely worth the asking price. (Pay a little extra within for the expansion pack, too!)

10. FIFA 14

While not as deep as its console counterpart, FIFA 14 delivers a strong football experience on the go, with touch controls that let you tap and swipe to dominate the pitch.

It's mainly focused on the Ultimate Team mode, wherein you collect player cards to build a squad, and there's a lot of fun here for free. FIFA 15 has some performance issues on Windows Phone, so stick with last year's game for now.
