I have already admitted to being addicted 5 Reasons Angry Birds Is So Damn Addictive 5 Reasons Angry Birds Is So Damn Addictive My name is Dave Parrack, I'm a 34-year-old freelance writer from England, and I have a problem. I'm addicted to playing Angry Birds. Being hooked on catapulting feathered weapons of mass destruction into smug pigs... Read More to Angry Birds, the mobile game which has embedded itself into society and launched hundreds of items of merchandise. I have since found out many of the other MakeUseOf writers are also advocates for this most-simple of games. But even Angry Birds can become boring and tiresome, when all the stars have been won, all the pigs have been vanquished and all the eggs have been returned.

Mobile gaming is now big business, and there are many popular titles to play. From the newest craze of Draw Something to several variations on the Nyan Cat! theme.

    On the iPhone (and the iPad too if you increase the size of the screen) is an Angry Birds-like game called "Trucks & Skulls". In this, you throw trucks at structures containing skulls, and you have to make the skulls explode. Highly addictive.

    I've also been playing "Cut The Rope" which is also very addictive and also very frustrating!

      Trucks and Skulls looks like Angry Birds as imagined by people on acid! I think that's a good thing.

      I tried Cut The Rope a while back. The frustration overcame the addictiveness for me. Have you not wanted to scream yet?

        Yeah, Trucks and Skulls is a bit on the hardcore side! LOL! Lots of roaring and growling! :-)

        Cut the Rope is very frustrating. My wife has given up on it as she was about to throw my precious iPad across the room! I'm taking a brief break from it to play Trucks and Skulls and boost my Angry Birds score a bit ;-)

          It's very manly!

          I really don't blame her. I'm a very casual gamer these days. If something frustrates me I just stop playing lol. I have never thrown an iPad though ;)

      I hadn't even thought about the DS, but of course. Is Dragonball Origins addictive?

        Yes, very much so. It's like a top-down beat-em-up with skill levels, items and puzzles. very nice gameplay as well.

          Sounds perfect for a long bis or train ride. Which is where I do most of my mobile gaming. Thanks for sharing :)

    Great choices. Road Trip looks absolutely mental, while Jet Car Stunts looks almost Virtua Racer-esque!

      The Creeps looks very addictive. It's a good job I haven't got an iPhone ;)
      Sea Battle Lite is Battleships by another name! Looks great though.
