Mandatory sitting at home becomes a lot more fun when you can play a game with your friends. These apps for smartphones and tablets are all highly recommended.


The classic murder mystery Cluedo can be played on your smartphone or tablet alone against the computer and online against friends. On a digital notepad you put crosses, check marks or question marks while your turn tries to find out who the killer is.

The game board is exactly the same as the physical board game. After the purchase price, the app will no longer have commercials or in-app purchases.

Mario Kart Tour

Mario Kart Tour has recently started using online multiplayer, which makes it one of the best free games to play against acquaintances and strangers. Just like on Nintendo consoles, in Mario Kart Tour you climb as one of the well-known characters from the Mushroom Kingdom in a cart, and then be the first to cross the finish line at all costs.

Mario Kart Tour is free to play, but has some in-app purchases and even a subscription to unlock extras. However, if you want to race against friends every now and then, the free version will do just fine.

Sky: Children of the Light

Making new friends is central to Sky: Children of the Light . In this adventure you solve puzzles together, with other players you don't know. By lighting candles and holding each other's hand you can help each other.

Meanwhile, you fly over clouds and walk through dark forests. Along the way, you'll unlock new upgrades to fly better and secrets hidden in nooks and crannies everywhere.

Sky was created by Thatgamecompany, the same developer who also created the popular indie games Journey and Flower . You can see that, because Sky looks just as beautiful and fairytale-like.

Call of Duty Mobile

What is less suitable for the younger players among us is Call of Duty Mobile . The popular shooter makes a surprisingly successful switch to the much smaller screens of tablets and smartphones, with a solid touchscreen control and support for bluetooth controllers.

Call of Duty Mobile offers a wide selection of modes, including classics like Domination and Team Deathmatch, as well as an entertaining Battle Royale option. You do all this to earn experience points, which equip your character with new skills and weaponry.
