The Google play store houses thousands of video games but most of them cater to children. There is a very limited collection of mind games for adults on Android but they are of great quality. Even though I do not think there is a games for “adults” and “children”, a lot of adults want a relatively harder experience. As an adult, I found myself ripping through a lot of different puzzle games for Android for this exact reason.
Thankfully, I was able to find some mind games for adults on Android that have scalable difficulties. No adults would want to zoom through puzzles and logic problems like a hot knife through butter. While some of the problems in these games might be too easy for you, you can always ramp up the difficulty and have a challenging experience. I also tried to include many different types of games, so if you are great at maths but don’t have full command over vocabulary, you can easily switch between these apps and have a challenging mental exercise.
Note: The 5 best mind games for adults on Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. The games worked perfectly fine and I had no trouble playing them for extended period of time. Some apps may require an active Internet connection for social media interactions. The games are not in any particular order and I highly recommend checking the whole list because they offer different challenges.
This is the math-based mind game for adults and children. I really like the interface of this game because it keeps things simple enough for young ones and has options to crank up the difficulty for adults. These are simple math questions that will tease your brain by testing your mathematical capabilities. As someone who is not great at mathematics, I had a lot of trouble playing some of the puzzles on here.
Sure, given enough time I’ll eventually solve the problem, but the timer right on the top of the screen kept me challenged and to be honest a little stressed. It’s a great way to exercise your brain, though, so I highly recommend checking this one out. However, if you’re a mathematical maestro, I suggest you check out the other games in the list.Show Downloads
I’m pretty sure we have all heard the river crossing riddles, this game is about them, like all of them. If you are unfamiliar, your ultimate goal in every level is to make sure everyone crosses the river. There are certain rules and restrictions in each level and you need to be aware of them in order to succeed.
The fewer moves and time you take to execute will determine how advanced the next levels will be for you. It is a great way to flex your brain muscles and challenge yourself extensively. As for me, I got stuck on the 4th riddle and it took me a long while to figure it out. Yes, I’m not that bright.Show Downloads
Infinity loop is a different kind of mind game for adults; it is not necessarily a challenging game but helps you relax as well as train your cognitive functions. It is a simple game that tasks you with connecting on lines and corners to make perfect connections. You are killing chaos and attaining perfection in this game.
It is an endless game, so there is a lot of potential in it to be your daily mental exercise. Sometimes the levels are quite hard to solve and sometimes they are easier. However, there is no way to know which one will be hard for you. It is that kind of a game where you get stuck; your brain gets frozen until you reload the game and go again.Show Downloads
Brainteasers for Adults
Everyone likes a good teaser and this game has a ton of them. I would say that this game is a mind game in the traditional sense because we have all solved riddles in papers and magazines. This one just helps us solve them on the go and without the need of purchasing magazines or dedicated teaser books.
The riddles are actually quite challenging and fun to solve, so you’ll have a lot on your plate while playing this game. Personally speaking, the game is going to stay on my phone for quite some time simply because I would love to solve all the riddles on it. It is an addictive experience and I’m sure you’ll have a great time with it.Show Downloads
This is another great mind game for adults on Android simply because it combines 2 of my favorite things. No, I’m not talking about peanut butter and jelly here, I’m talking about pictures and words. As you may have guessed from the name of the game, it is all about guessing the word associated with the pictures displayed.
The fun thing is, sometimes the game combines 2 pictures to spell out a word. You have a great time guessing words especially when you are not familiar with the English language. I certainly had a great time playing this game. I also recommend that you check out the best language learning apps for Android to expand your English vocabulary.Show Downloads
