The best games for tablets

Today, mobile gaming is a force that even industry giants must reckon with. Stars are born and fade on mobile platforms, games from PCs and consoles take on new life, eSports disciplines and even exclusives appear. And if some projects amaze us with the ingenuity of developers who are able to perfectly adapt their creations to smartphones, others are desperately asking for more screens.

Mobile games are convenient, because they do not need a monitor, console or system unit, and most importantly, they do not tie the player to a place, and sometimes they force him to run. However, it’s not a secret for anyone that not every game can boast of ease of control from the phone: a stick on a half-screen and extremely small icons, nimble objects that are difficult to hit with your finger, text that cannot be read without a magnifying glass, and a picture in which there are too many parts for a small display. Today we have compiled for you a list of mobile games for Android and iOS, which, of course, can be played using a smartphone, but it is best to use a tablet for this.
