Updated on November 1st, 2021

This list compiles the best free mobile games that you can play on your iPhone, iPad or Android phone – and we’ve done our best to keep it right up to date.

We’ve everything from radical roguelikes to radish platformers, and we stop off at plenty of places in-between, but the most important thing is that all of these are high-quality games that are totally free to download on your phone or tablet right now. 

How did this list of the best free mobile games come to be?

We originally started this list because a mass of developers came forward, offering up their normally-premium games for free as a result of the increased isolation of society due to Covid-19. But, let’s face it, working from home isn’t exactly a trend we are going to see going away.

Over time, however, the list has evolved into a selection of the finest free mobile games, be that free to start, free to play, or just plain free. We’ve deliberately tip-toed around some of the bigger names which you already know, to bring you this carefully curated list of fantastic free mobile games.

So, what we’ll do here is compile and regularly update a list of the best free mobile games – including discounted premium games and free-to-play games – which you can grab right now for your iPhone or Android device.

As with everything, some of these discounts are limited time or change rapidly, we’ll do our best to keep the post updated – but if we do miss anything then do feel free to reach out to us and let us know in the comments below.
