Stylist's 50 best game apps

A woman in a crisp white shirt and suit trousers is intently using her phone on the train. She's not checking her email, she's playing Candy Crush Saga.

Games are no longer isolated to geeks, gamers or children. Smartphones have paved the way for hundreds of clever, witty and highly addictive apps, and most of all, games we're not embarrassed to talk about by the water cooler or at dinner. Take the 50 billionth app to be downloaded from iTunes. It was a word game called ‘Say The Same Thing’ created by OK Go, the indie band who danced on treadmills in a music video. Even Ellen DeGeneres has launched an app for the charades-like game she plays with guests on her show.

We've worked our way through iPhone and Android apps and shortlisted the very best games you should download. From blockbusters like Cut The Rope, to technological groundbreakers like The Room to beautifully whimsical puzzles like Incoboto Mini, there's a game app for every mood and time-span right here...
