Mortal Kombat X
This classic fighting game remains one of the top games even today.

The mechanics of the game allow you to battle with fast tapping on your phone. Even at no cost, you get the full version of the game, completely ad-free.
This mobile gaming app made news headlines when it premiered in 2016. After all, only about 650 million people downloaded the game. Available for free at both Google Play and the App Store, Pokémon Go has already picked up awards like “Best Mobile App” by The Game Developers Choice Awards” and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch. Players join Trainers across the globe looking for Pokémon as they explore the world around them. You could stumble upon Squirtle hiding nearby the San Francisco waterfront, or catch Pikachu running around the Eiffel Tower.

Go on an incredible journey meeting characters along the way and discovering the dark forces that threaten to destroy their world.
