With it’s charming art style and simple gameplay, it’s no surprise Threes! has quickly become a classic that has led to many similar games such as 2048.

Hook is a well made puzzle game that’s easy to pick up and play through. It’s definitely a bit short, and isn’t quite as challenging as many of the other puzzle games out there, but it’s a satisfying puzzle experience.

Tents and Trees is a classic logic puzzle game in the same vein as sudoku. Players are tasked with placing one (and online one) tent next to each tree on the game board, without any of the tents touching and with the required number of tents in each row and column. It’s a simple concept and the game gives players hundreds of levels to play through, from small grids to massive 18 by 18 boards.

Tents and Trees is one of the best Android puzzle games because it offers players a ton of levels of brain teasing logic puzzles, all with a clean art style and the ability to play in both portrait and landscape mode.
