Your smartphone can be used for a wide variety of tasks but none are as fun as these games! I've come up with a list of 15 games you should check out if you haven't been playing them already. But beware, some are extremely addictive!

Games are broken down into three different categories: There's five award-winning games, five can't-miss classics and five highly-addictive games you might have never heard of.

Without further ado, here are the best games you'll want on your smartphone or tablet:

5 fun games you might not have known about

1010!
In 1010!, you will be given a game board and sets of three puzzle pieces. Your goal is to arrange the blocks across the board and fill out lines, both horizontal and vertical. When each space is occupied by a block, that line will disappear and you'll have new spaces to put new pieces.

Clear out as many lines and columns as you can to get the highest score. There's no end, no final level, so how far you go is up to you.

Agar.io
The goal of Agar.io is simple. You are a blob, dot, circle or planet, whatever term you prefer, and you want to float around the game board as long as possible. You can also give your blob a nickname on the home screen, so other blobs will know who's boss.

As you float around, you want to pick up or eat smaller blobs or planets near you, absorbing them and making you a bigger blob. But watch out! Blobs bigger than you will absorb you, then it's game over. The goal is to be the biggest and last blob standing on the board.

Blek
The object of Blek is to collect the colored dots, while at the same time avoiding the black dots, by drawing a line or path for your game piece to follow. The pattern you draw will continue through the entire board.

Sound confusing? The app's creators say in the Google Play Store, "Blek can't be described with words. Watch the video." I'm going to agree with them. See Blek in action in the video below and it will all make sense, I promise.

Triple Town
If you're passionate about puzzles, Triple Town is your cup of tea. This cute and quirky game forces you to think outside the box. Build up your city by combining three of a kind.

But watch out for bears! These adorable beasts will ravage your outpost. But never fear! Like everything in Triple Town, three trapped bears create a new village building. It's an innovative game that will have you addicted in no time!

ZigZag
The objective of ZigZag is to keep the ball from falling off the wall. To move the ball, you simply tap your screen to change the direction it's headed. You can also earn points by collecting diamonds that are placed along your path.
