2. Clash Royale

A frantic mash-up of deck building card battler, real-time strategy game and tower defense – this player-vs-player Clash of Clans spin-off quickly became the biggest game on mobile after it launched in January, and with good reason. Not only does it do a great job of scratching even the most tenacious of competitive itches, it does so in a way that's perfectly suited to playing on your phone. Matches are all just a few minutes long and it does a good job of rewarding both casual and super-dedicated play. If you just want to dabble you can have a lot of fun, but if you really want to excel, contribute to your clan and learn its deeper meta-game there's some real depth to how you build your decks and the way you place units on the field.
