Technology has been blamed for the fact that it doesn’t promote bonding, especially among family members. It has even been blamed for creating divides, not only among families but in society as a whole. This may be true, but every cloud has a silver lining.

There are dozens of mobile games suitable for families. If statistics are anything to go by, the age of mobile games players tells it all: every one, both young and old, is enjoying the ever-growing mobile gaming industry.

Below are a few games suitable for families:

Badland

This game is packed with fun and isn’t hard to navigate. It involves guiding a certain creature through different levels of obstacles and traps.

As you climb up the levels, the number of creatures rises. And this is where the fun comes in, as each player gets to use their own creature. Badland can be messy, but it’s lots of fun.

Heads Up

This game is more or less the same as the offline version of the same name, only in this one you play on your mobile phone.

Players select a category and then lift the phone so that others can see. The fun part is recording other family members in order to provide give clues, which are often hilarious.

Terraria

If you have some time to kill after dinner, this one’s great. In this game, players build their own kingdoms by digging up mines.

You can dig deep below the surface, where you will encounter monsters or, if you’re lucky, find hidden treasure.

Super Stickman Golf 3

This game is more or less like Angry Birds. The key factor here is precision, while the rules are pretty simple to follow.

In Super Stickman Golf 3, each player requires his or her own mobile device. Fun fact about this game: family members who live in other countries can also take part.
