Still, a lot of users believe that Android phones aren’t good for anything else than business and work. That may have been true a year ago, but today, Android can do anything that the iPhone, for example, can, including play videos, music, display full website pages and play games, of course.

Today, we’ll take a look at the best puzzle games for the Android. These games are not only fun but also useful for your brain and reflexes!
Colorix is not only the most entertaining game on this list, but also the most beautiful. The premise is basically the same as Tetris, only instead of falling blocks that you have to put in place, you get rolling orbs of great graphics quality. The game is very addictive, and you’ll find yourself spending hours on end without getting bored.
This is one of the most popular games for Android and iPhone, and for good reasons: it’s simple, easy to learn and you will never get bored of playing it over and over again. All you have to do is shoots balloons from cannon in order to make the main line disappear, but things are complicated by the fact that there’s a death hole at the end which eats your balloons with ever increasing speed!
This is a very plain looking game, and some would say it’s actually very ugly. That may be so, but the physics of the game and its gameplay is what makes it great. It uses your phone’s accelerometer to sense a tilt, and when it does, the blocks in the game fall towards the bottom, as if being pulled by gravity, which makes for a very interesting and challenging gameplay.
This is a very smart game for people with a lot of wits. It is basically a puzzle game, but the questions are sometimes tricky to answer, contain a catch 22 situation or are simply wrong (so there’s no real correct answer)! This makes it very interesting to play and you always have to be alert so you know when the game is deceiving you and when it’s asking real questions (plus you have to answer the difficult questions, of course).
