In mid-2021 there were more than half a million mobile games and their number is growing every day: every day thousands of developers release applications on Android, come up with browser games and offer other entertainment content.
So that you don’t get lost in this variety and don’t go crazy with the abundance of options, we have compiled a brief ultimatum guide with non-obvious games and entertainment for every taste, which are available on your Android smartphone or tablet.
If you like solving complex puzzles, we suggest you pay attention to these games. They will make you think out of the box and the pleasure of winning will surely brighten up your day!
Really Bad Chess
Not really ordinary chess, although rather quite unusual: at the beginning of the game each player’s set of pieces is formed completely randomly. Both opponents will have 16 pieces each, as always, but it might be three queens, five rooks, a king in the front row and just a couple of pawns. I guess this kind of chess will suit either those who are particularly good at regular chess, or those who are particularly bad.
