Hey everyone, this is my last submission for this mobile game series - I hope you’ve all found at least one game that has taken your interest. Today I’m going to be taking a look at some of the greatest strategy games currently available within the various app stores.

I think action games are probably one of the best genres for the mobile platform, beside puzzlers of course.

However, I’ve decided to delve into a few games that may appeal to those less inclined to watching and playing sports today. These games offer quick gameplay that allow players to play whenever they have a few minutes to spare, and despite being far less realistic than EA’s games, they still offer some great mechanics for sport lovers to enjoy too.
