Mobile phone games are a great way to counter boredom. And while most people prefer surfing social media platforms, it's easy to get tired of the same memes and DIY videos.

Games provide enormous variety across multiple genres, be it arcade, puzzle, action, or RPG; there are millions of great mobile games to choose from that can cater to virtually any taste. In fact, there's so much variety that it can be difficult to know where to start.

In this story, we're going to take a look at some underrated games on the Google Play Store that deserve your attention. If you're looking for something new (especially if you've been stuck to Candy Crush and you're looking for some variety), you've come to the right place.

Let's get started.

The Last Day on Earth: Survival

Most survival games don't survive for too long on our phones. Why? We think it's because most survival games on phones don't really have much to offer. All you're doing much of the time is feeding your character, building up a shelter, and killing some zombies. Sure, that's survival, but it doesn't make for a particularly satisfying experience on a mechanical level.

The Last Day on Earth: Survival is one of the best survival games on the Google Play Store (it did, after all, win the Google Play Most Innovative Game in 2017 award). It features a large world to explore that unfolds as you make progress in the game. And, unlike in many other survival games, your character doesn't only need food to survive. Clothing, fire, entertainment, transportation - really anything a human could need - are all required for survival. See what we mean? We think this offers a richer experience as a result.

Furthermore, you'll continually receive useful items that help you make progress as you move through each level. Even better, you can have pets in this game; you'll find puppies in the woods, farms, or cliffs, and you can also breed them. Your animal buddies can also help you defeat enemies (who doesn't want their own pack of dog protectors, right?)

It's also important to note that this game requires strong and stable internet connectivity given its online nature. Without that reliability, you might find yourself losing progress and needing to start afresh; nobody wants to be heartbroken through losing all that valuable time and effort.

To avoid this pitfall, we recommend Spectrum, which provides fast speeds across millions of free hotspot zones around the country, meaning you can play this game anywhere, anytime.

To avoid Spectrum's services, visit their website site. They cater to up to 42 million Spanish speakers in the U.S. And if you need high-speed home Wi-Fi with stable ping for online gaming, you can connect to servicio al cliente de Spectrum to avail Spanish customer support.

Among Us

Beware: this game is going to make you suspicious of everyone. Yes, you heard right (folks who have already played this game can relate to this point).

Among Us is a minimalistic but fun game to enjoy with family and friends. In each session, there's an imposter. Nobody - except the imposter themselves - knows their identity. Their mission is simple: kill the other players discreetly before the participants complete their task.

Now, here's the twist: participants can call for a vote at any time when they are suspicious about another player. Everyone gives their suggestions and the vote proceeds; the player with the highest votes gets eliminated whether or not they are the imposter. So, although players can wield this weapon, they have to use it wisely: voting for the wrong player can further jeopardise the mission, and can sow further distrust and confusion within the group. This is why we recommend having strong IRL relationships with the other players; loyalties will certainly be tested in Among Us.

SimCity BuildIt 

EA rarely disappoints when it comes to Android games. It is maybe no surprise then that SimCity BuildIt is one of the more captivating games on the Google Play Store.

If you've played any prior SimCity game, you will already be familiar with the basics here. You are responsible for building and maintaining an ever-growing metropolis. Unlike previous games in the series though, BuildIt arguably has more structure in terms of progression. You'll need to keep citizens happy, of course, but you'll also need to level up over time and pursue a wide array of opportunities for your city. Achieving success means unlocking landmarks, building stadiums and ports, and dealing with ever more complex challenges.

Needless to say, maintaining a city - especially as it grows larger - isn't easy. Citizens can get annoyed pretty easily and they have a range of different needs/requirements. You'll need to closely monitor their happiness level and attend to their needs if you want to avoid revolt and ensure harmony.

Tiny Room Stories: Town Mystery

Do you like escape rooms, where every step forward involves solving another puzzle? If the answer is yes - and if you enjoy thinking outside the box - you'll enjoy Tiny Room Stories.

This thrilling puzzle game requires you to use every single part of your brain to succeed. The story revolves around a town whose inhabitants are missing. In order to progress and work your way through the town's mysteries, you'll have to put on your detective hat. There are plenty of subtle clues to guide you, but you'll need to pay close attention to unlock the game's riddles.

Bottom Line

As mentioned at the outset, there are so many great games on the Google Play Store. So, this list could be endless. We don't want you to feel overwhelmed, so we recommend getting started with one or more of the above suggestions. Adios!
