Most blackjack games end up being pretty disappointing. Not this one. The gameplay is pretty simple, but has really cool additions like Bold Play bonuses and collectable cards. It's so much like an actual casino that the rewards you earn in-game can be redeemed for actual rewards at real-life Vegas casinos. It's as close to the real thing as you can get without asking for a loan.

They say a bad day fishing beats a good day working. This is a game that lets you do both at the same time. You get different boats, tackle and baits, letting you trot around the globe hooking the biggest catches around. It's far better than actual fishing.

Being a Dj goes way beyond flicking records and going wickey-wickey on the ones and twos. Your introduction to the turntables stars with 'djay 2'. Not only do you have access to your whole iTunes library; with Spotify integration, there's no song you can't find. Snap into a Slim Jim, create new beats and mash-up songs like a pro.

Catapult games do not begin and end with 'Angry Birds.' 'Crush The Castle,' and all of its sequels, are some of the most satisfying and enjoyable games you'll find. This isn't just some time-waster; CtC requires serious hand-eye coordination. Some of these levels are absolutely sadistic.

There are flight simulators, and there's 'X Plane.' A mobile game version of the wildly popular desktop simulation, 'X Plane' puts you in the left seat of some pretty intense aircrafts. Everything from a little single-prop Cessna 172, to a Boeing 777 commercial airliner, on up to an F-22 fighter jet. It's the closest thing to actually flying without getting a pilot's license.

A simple but devilishly addictive gem from Mediocre Games. You're given a supply of metal balls that you hurl at glass targets, smashing them. The realistic glass-shattering sound is way more satisfying than it really ought to be. The ambient/electro soundtrack is just the right finishing touch.

Remember 'Pong'? What if you could play it as a first-person game? That's 'Vector Ball.' You can control the paddle either with your finger or with the phone's accelerometer. Either way, it's fast-paced and addictive. The ability to hit a curveball is your price of admission, but will also be your undoing.

What's the best thing about military-themed video games? Blowing stuff up. That's all you do in this game -- drop bombs and missiles on stuff. You don't run out of ammo, it's almost impossible to get shot down, and all you do is blow ... stuff ... up. Seriously, that's all it is. Stuff gets blown up. Make sure you're using earbuds, and enjoy!

Say goodbye to every shred of spare time you've ever had. It's obscenely simple, and more addictive than you can believe. You arrange "atoms" in a pattern that allows you to bond them into other compounds. Keep going and you can make every atom on the table.

There's a ton of tower defense games out there, but this one is 'Star Wars.' What's cooler than that? Based on the 'Star Wars Rebels' animated series, it sucks you in as much as anything else 'Star Wars' has ever done. You set up towers and lines of defense on various 'Star Wars' planets, and let the enemy come. Bonus? You can play as both Jedi and Dark Side characters.

If you remember playing 'Missile Command,' you had pretty awesome parents. A new twist on an all-time classic, this will suck up most of your train commute. The touch controls are pretty accurate, but what sets it off is the sound. Few games have such a satisfying explosion sound as this.
