On April 2, 2014

In these past few months there have been much discussion about what addictive games are and what makes a game addictive. The creator of Flappy Bird told reporters he removed the game from the App Store because he felt it was becoming an addiction for some gamers. In this article we will examine some of the most addictive apps currently available on the App Store.

Angry Birds

Price: $0.99

If you own an iDevice or actually pretty much any device and have never played Angry Birds then you must have been living under a rock. All you have to do is hit pigs with birds, how hard can it be, right? Angry Birds was created by Rovio Entertainment and is without a doubt one of the most addictive games in the App Store.

Threes! is the game that started it all, if you have heard about 1024 or 2048 then know this, these are all clones of Threes! The game is all about the number three; all you have to do is add numbers together in order to make even larger numbers. The game starts off rather simply but quickly gains in difficulty and addictiveness at the same time.

Ready Steady Bang

Price: $0.99

Ready Steady Bang is pretty much a game focused on who has the fastest fingers. Even though the graphics of the game will never win any awards, Ready Steady Bang is a beautifully addictive quick-fire dueling game.


Price: Free

Everyone knows gambling is addictive, Bet365 makes it so much easier for you to place your bets. They offer a whole range of different markets that you can bet on. Furthermore the company offers live streaming to your iDevices and all users are being able to read up on all the latest sports news.

The idea behind Dots is really simple; just connect as many same colored dots as you possibly can before time runs out. You can either play against the clock or you can compete against other players through the new multiplayer option.

Don’t step the white tile

Price: Free

This is one of the games that has really been eating my time lately. Don’t step the white tile is a Japanese game that puts you on your feet and tests your reflexes. You need to click on the white tiles as fast as possible while not touching any black tiles.


Whether the next addictive game will be a little bird flapping around or a game where connecting the dots, or adding numbers, is anyone’s guess, all we can safely assume is that the game with quickly gain in popularity and shoot to the top of the App Store charts.
