The mobile gaming industry is developing at a very fast pace. There are hundreds of game available for Android as well as for iOS. They are not only fun to play but they also make you think and make your brain work.

Want to know what are the best games for Android & iOS? Then you are at the right place. Here I compiled a list of the best idle games for Android & iOS. 

Adventure Capitalist

Adventure Capitalist is a video game of the Tycoon genre by Hyper Hippo Productions for the iOS, Windows Phone and Facebook platforms. The game was originally released as a freemium title, with in-app purchases available to speed up the rate of progress.

However, in December 2014 the game was updated to make it a paid game with no in-app purchases, with the developers stating they believed this was a more fair model.

In the game, the player starts off with $500,000 and the task of building up a successful business by making investments, hiring workers, and completing quests. The game is very similar to the popular tycoon game, Cookie Clicker, which is based on clicking and earning money to invest in new items to make more money, with the eventual goal of getting to the Moon. 

The game is played from an isometric perspective, and the player has a series of quests to do to earn more money and buy better items. The game has over 300 quests.

Realm Grinder

In Realm Grinder you will play as a powerful mage who uses his magic to summon creatures to help him in his quest for more power. You will have to summon creatures to battle against other creatures, but you will also have to upgrade them in order to make them stronger and be able to survive longer on the battlefield.

The game has two modes, Campaign Mode and Sandbox Mode. In Campaign Mode, you will have to earn enough coins to be able to summon more creatures and buy upgrades for them. In Sandbox Mode, you can just play the game without any restrictions.
Egg, Inc.

An addictive, fast-paced game with an original, off-beat theme! You are the CEO of a giant corporation that sells eggs. For some reason, your company has just gone bankrupt and you won't be able to pay your employees, so you must get money any way you can!
Earn money by selling and delivering eggs. Buy upgrades to make your company more efficient, and then get back in the game!

To win AFK Arena, you need to win battles and level up your hero’s attributes. The higher your level, the stronger your hero becomes. Have fun!


Idle games are very popular and fun to play, but the problem is that they are very addictive. We can't just play one or two games, we need to play more and more. These games offer a nice way to kill some free time. These games usually offer great graphics and sometimes they can be very funny too.
