Knowing the sheer numbers of our internet-less audience, match-three puzzlers are never going to run out of players.

Another popular offline mobile genre is the idle game. Boy, are there a ton of them. Kolibri Games’ Idle title is all about getting your work done as a mailman.

It’s fairly easy and there’s no issue playing without an internet connection. Gamerscore of 9.39.
8. Merge Mania
If you’ve played 2048 before, then you’ll know how this works. It’s the kind of game you see loaded with misleading and questionable ads. It doesn’t have the most appealing marketing strategy. Connected to the internet will overload you with those ads. But by going offline, you’ll have nothing to worry about. If you’re into casual games like these, you would probably still enjoy this. A gamerscore of 9.39.
If you’re interested in offline games, you’re sure to find simple games like these. There’s nothing convoluted or mind-boggling here. All you have to do is play a special game of tetris where you put blocks on a screen instead of watching them drop down. The sudoku style comes from getting to eliminate 3x3 blocks. That’s all there is to it. The fun here (I guess, if you’re into that) is by beating your high score. It has a gamerscore of 9.39.
Now this is just your good old Sudoku game. Every day you’re given new challenges to solve. Whether you want to beat your score or not is all up to you. It’s the kind of game you’d play on a remote island or any place with little to no internet. It receives a gamerscore of 9.51.
Another of those matching games that plague the mobile market, especially the Android’s Playstore. Similar to the Merge games on this list, it’s another puzzler that doesn’t take much of your time at all. Nothing too complicated here. There are over 100 objects to find. Choose three of the same objects on the screen and watch them disappear and reappear on the screen. A gamerscore of 9.54.

Zombie games on Android devices are not the most original concept out there. If you’re looking for an internet-less zombie shooting experience, then this one takes the cake.

In this mouthful of an entry, expect the same merge game from previous titles. This time, packed with fruits. But mostly watermelons. If you’re really bored and want to try a random Android title on the Playstore, then this one is something to let the minutes go by. Simply merge these fruits into one massive chunk and continue doing so until you get bored. It receives a gamerscore of 9.66.
Collectible card games meet Solitaire. If you are into both, then this one will definitely net you hours and hours of fun, even without an internet connection.

It’s not as complicated compared to other card games on the market, and it’s designed for casual players. You could even play it with just one hand.
