5 Minute Mobile Games is all about that game you love to play while waiting to load up your burrito, buy your groceries, get your teeth cleaned, or while you take a…constitutional. We love those games. They distract, occupy, and entertain. In some cases you can play a full game in just a few minutes, in others you can sneak in a short session of a much longer campaign. They are games you can play for five minutes or an hour, whenever you have time, wherever you are.

We play all of the games we review. Anybody can write a glorified press release. Anybody can watch a video and report that a game “looks interesting”. That’s not enough to help you decide where to put your hard-earned money.

We do not approve of games that rely on addiction-exploiting mechanics to make money, most common in freemium (free-to-play) titles.
