After much reflection, we have selected ten mobile games for Android and iOS, which is little, either that they accompany us for some time, or that they seduced us recently. Anyway, get ready to play this summer !

Full of movies, music and games, our smartphones and tablets will follow us docilely on holiday. The opportunity to use them for something other than answering professional emails or trying to cover the commotion of public transport.

It’s also a chance to enjoy yourself and to play with your toes in a fan. After a draconian selection that made us cry tears of despair, we got a list of ten titles. Ten games that we would recommend to our friends, with holes in the racket, as the polo specialists say.

If we were seduced very recently by Monument Valley, nice and poetic puzzles, on iOS, its very short lifespan has excluded it from our list. There are also some titles that regularly steal hours of play but, for all that, will not travel with us on holiday, or even as a stowaway. Because the idea is to choose the games to put in its virtual suitcase… Civilization Revolution 2, coming out tomorrow, could have claimed to be part of the trip, but we haven’t had it yet. So we have retained certain values, other titles less known, games to play alone, quietly, in a hammock, others that will take all their flavor to many around a table, at nightfall. A small selection of pixels and video game moments that we wish you good and warm!

What is it, Tetris ? One might think so, but Rymdkapsel is actually a real-time strategy game. You start with two units that have to build very quickly to extract resources, generate energy and food.

Each building has the shape of a Tetris piece and you will need to optimize the space as much as possible to tighten the mesh of the base and leave as few angles of attack as possible.
