As a rule, mobile games are great for on the go. You can get a level in while on the bus, or waiting in line at the bank. On this list, you may find some exceptions to that rule. Games that are better suited for hiding under a blanket in your bedroom with all of the doors and windows locked, hoping that no one knocks on the door.
Proceed with caution.
Find your way through the darkness using only sound waves. Solving puzzles to stay alive.

Each night, you die and become a ghost. Protect yourself from other spirits and collect enough “soular power” to be resurrected.
