Summer is finally here and many of you will undoubtedly be heading out for a long summer road trip, a holiday in the sun or maybe you’re planning a relaxing staycation.

If you’re travelling long hours then what better time to get out your smartphone and pass the time on some of the best Android games out there? Google Play Store is filled with fun games that are perfect for the summer, and we’ve put a few of our favourites together for you to take a look at.


The mystery

Cube Escape: TheatreCube Escape: Theatre

Cube Escape: Theatre is the perfect game for all the adventure loving Android users out there. It’s the eighth and latest game in the Cube Escape series, a point-and-click mystery, that continues the unfolding of the Rusty Lake story. The player is required to step into Dale Vandermeer’s shoes, as he visits a theatre to watch a series of short plays. The point of the game is to navigate inside the cube to interact with objects and use them to unfold Rusty Lake mysteries one step at a time – it is trickier than it sounds, believe us.

Whilst it is lots of fun, be warned – you need to be patient!

The brain trainer

Brain TrainerRoll the Ball

Roll the Ball is quite possibly one of our favourite apps to pass the time, and it’s a great game to keep both adults and children entertained on an aeroplane or train this summer. It’s almost as easy as it sounds – you simply roll the ball to the exit. There are a ton of epic levels, no time limit and you can play offline (making it perfect for travels). Good luck.

The multiplayer strategy


Subterfuge is by far one of the best strategy games on the market. The aim is to compete to extract Neptunium – a rare mineral. The first to mine 200 tons of Neptunium wins, but of course it’s not that straightforward and there are twists along the way, including the fact that the planet is covered in water…

What makes the game so unique is that it plays out in real-time over the course of a week. Although that means you do really have to commit! In order to strive to victory, the Subterfuge team advise you to check in a few times a day and master both strategy and diplomacy.

If you want to find out more, it’s worth taking a look at a few of the online tutorials or checking out the rulebook.

The nerdy puzzleAtomas


Atomas is an addictive puzzle game with simple rules and endless fun; all about atoms, fusions and alchemy – so let’s hope you paid attention in school. This is not a hard game but if you want to win, you will need to be organized and have a good strategy. This is the best way to have fun while still learning something new every day, even if you’re on holiday. Enjoy…

The versus-fighting action


 Marvel: Contest of Champions

Are you ready for the greatest battles in Marvel history? For this game you need to assemble a team and prepare to take part in the ultimate fights between some of your favourite Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains.  First you need to assemble your team, before embarking on an epic journey told through classic Marvel storytelling. Throughout this journey you’ll also be improving your team’s skills in order to keep your champions in the fight. May the best one win!

The children’s puzzle


Cookie Cats

You are now in charge of feeding cookies to the neighbourhood cats and the only way to do so is to create chains by connecting cookies of the same colour. A great idea – right?

There are a variety of game modes and hundreds of different levels to play. Your children are definitely not going to get bored during those long waiting times at the airport!
