    So basically i need this weekend to pass as quickly as possible, and am therefore looking for any good games that i can kill some hours with. They dont need to be free. Got any tips/ideas? Role Playing games are preferred.

    Candy crush is said to be an addictive game, give that a shot

    If you want some quality long-lasting titles, I can only recommend Spectromancer and XCOM: Enemy unknown. The latter requires at least an iPad4 (or even better) for proper framerates.

    The only game I found addictive so far would be Kingdom Rush.

    Spaceward Ho will destroy hours and hours of your time. :eek:

    The latest iPad version is very pretty and it plays just as fun as it did twenty years ago when I first bought it for Windows 3.1

    Smash Hit is very addictive and a perfect game for touch controls.

    If you are in to Sci-Fi strategy games Xcom and FTL are great choices. FTL in particular, released just today and is very addicting (in a good way :).

    Both games will provide you with hours and hours of gameplay.

    Agreed. The replayability pf Xcom is pretty great, too. Now that I've beaten it in Easy, I restarted the entire mission just to (vastly) improve my previous result, which wasn't very good (1790 pts, 377 days). After all, it was 19 years ago that I played the original XCOM on the desktop and have forgotten the strategy needed in the meantime (had to re-learn the strategy to be used, incl. the most optimal unit selection, gray market trading to greatly fasten up tech tree climbing etc).

    And it's an excellent game for casual, 2-3-minute-long game sessions too. Only the initial loading times (30+s on an rMini) are a bit annoying.

    The iPad version of, Fieldrunners still holds my attention.
    (The first version, not so much the convoluted second edition...)

    Go hiking. Go biking. Go for an all day drive. Explore. Discover something. Talk to someone new. Get out of your house, man. Live a little!

    Try Cytus!

    It is easy to start and you will be addicted to it!

    Deemo is another game from the same developers.

    It is more difficult to play in the beginning……

    but when you get the feeling how to play it

    you will love the game and the story!

    L4Leonard probably doesn't need the recommendations, but oh well...

    I agree Cytus is excellent (great soundtrack!). This weekend though, I've been playing Dark Nebula HD - Episode Two which I got a few months back. Really fun and challenging, especially when you get to the levels with the moving platforms you have to balance your ball on.

    Try This Physics-based Game

    I love The Foundry with 100 Balls, it's simple and fun. You can try it

    The Simpsons Tapped Out

    I even play Kardashian Hollywood when really bored and I don't even like playing games on a device. It's something to do when not using my device to read. Also very easy to advance in the game.

    Candy Crush Saga is no fun especially when you have to pay .99 for cheats. :apple:

    nothing with the word "saga" in the title. Don't give in to those annoying games that don't give you anything unless you buy add-ons.
