Do you play mobile games to kill time?

    I have a lot of games on my iPod, but I find that I only really play them when I have a lot of time to kill. Like at school, for example. :p Is this how you would describe your mobile gaming?

    I sink a good hour every day into playing mobile games. I normally do it during the commute to work or school, they're easy to play and don't require much effort; I don't have to set aside time to make sure I can get through the story, I just pick up and play.

    The game I play most is 1010!. I don't even know why, I just haven't stopped playing it in months, even when better games pop up.

    Yes, I usually have a lot of time where I basically don't know what to do at work because there are no clients asking assistance so, if I'm not doing work-related stuff, I fire up my "Piano Tiles" arcade game and start tapping randomly on my smarthpone screen XD It seems like a joke but I do it for real since I'm kind of attracted by games like that.. also hexagon is a really valid alternative.

    I do, although not necessarily on purpose! Sometimes I end up getting so engrossed in the game I'm playing that I end up playing it far longer than I ever meant to play and then the time is gone!
    Currently I'm playing Fallout Shelter which isn't generally the sort of game I'd play on a mobile device but I've found it's actually quite gripping. It basically follows people in a bunker after an apocalypse type event and you have to get them to progress and level up so that they're able to fight off invasions and things like that. It's a simulation type game but for once it's actually pretty good on mobile!

    I do spend some time on mobile app games. They're definitely time killers for sure since they don't really have a lot of purpose. I'm usually playing on my phone when I'm waiting for the bus or something.

    I've played some mobile games. I used to play Scramble with Friends a lot but I don't remember the login at all. I also played Plague Inc (I think that's what it was called) some. I just need to find some good Android games sometime.

    Yes, that's about the only reason I play mobile games. I spend a lot of time at the doctor's office waiting to get in so I usually play them there so that I don't have to spend what feels like 574385 hours just sitting there. :p

    I have very good games on my phone. There are times when I shut down my PC and concentrate to play games or just have fun on my phone. At the same time, there are several times when mobile gaming is just a matter of killing time. When I am out of the house, visiting strangers or waiting for someone, I am usually forced to turn to my phone for entertainment and fun.

    You are right, There are days when I have played games on my phone for over six hours, when I intended to play for about an hour or less or better still while waiting for something. I have even budgeted to play games while waiting for a program and have ended up missing the program itself. Mobile gaming at the end of the day gives a lot of fun.

    Absolutely. I often have a lot of time to kill and mobile games are generally a great way to waste your time, so it clicks. I only play them when I have less than two hours worth of time to kill though, because being on your phone for over two hours will a) drain your battery which would suck because I need to be able to receive texts and calls, b) overheat your phone really badly, c) worsen the condition of your neck, not that it's not bad enough already.. I'm serious. Whenever I have more than two hours to kill I just go on the computer (if I'm home) or find things activities to do after two hours or less of mobile gaming (when I'm outside).

    I play it to kill time when I'm free or, or actually bring myself to check my phone periodically because I'm running a game account such as Clash of Clans. Many PC games like dungeonhunter are also going to mobile, making it much easier to play the game on the go, wherever you are. Much more convenient to whip out your phone than to bring round a laptop, no?

    I do think that mobile gaming is becoming more and more popular, but for me the only time I play a game on the go is when I'm killing time. I have always been a console gamer in the past, and while some of the mobile games that are coming out now are good, I don't think that they involve you as much as the home console games do.

    Mobile gaming is only going to get bigger I think, but just like the hand-held consoles that have been available for a number of years now, I still think that the desktop consoles and PC's will rule the roost for a number of years to come.

    I sometimes use mobile gaming to kill time. If we count a Nintendo 3ds as mobile, then I use it full-time but not to kill time. If we mention devices like an Iphone or a Galaxy phone, then I do use it but mostly emulators. I said sometimes because I am mostly doing homework ahead of time so unless I am really bored, then I grab my Ipad and start playing.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned Pokémon Go. I play as my mean to kill time while I'm strolling the alleys around. It don't go and wander too often though. Wish I could catch better Pokémon, or even a legendary one, but I'm just lvl 25 and right now levelling became a chore than something fun to do.

    Most of my time is me sitting at school doing homework, occasionally checking nearby Pokemon or watching anime. And if I am not at school, then it's at home full-time playing PC/Consoles. So I don't really use it to kill time at school, but I do use it on my way to school.

    When I'm away from my PC, I play this shooter on my phone called Bullet Force, it's pretty okay. It's not pay-to-win and it's actually made well. The graphics and animations are pretty good looking, and it's even got a community on Facebook.

    If I'm, for example, on the bus, it's a great way to spend your time. Especially if you're like me and you'll be on the bus for at least an hour.
