    Turn off WiFi and mobile data and most games are Ad free!

    Minecraft

    Browse the Humble store for Android titles. I picked a load up in past android bundles, though I rarely play on mobile/tablet as I don't like gaming on touch screens: some of them the kids have liked, though - Devious Dungeon, Catan, Organ Trail, etc

    Works for most of my games. Wi-Fi and Mobile Data? Airplane mode in other words?

    I think Alto (and it's sequel) is ad free once you pay for the ad removal. after that the game is well balanced, dont need to pay to progress etc

    Mobile gaming and play to pay is really annoying these days.
    Every single game I loved when growing up - SimCity type games, First Person shooters or any simple fun games, require players to drop lots of money to progress or develop city/worlds.
    My son just downloaded a Rollercoaster Tycoon game on his iPad and within 10mins he’s bored because he needs to watch adverts to earn in game cash, or spend £20 to build a single coaster.
    Game developers have lost their way and just money grab off rich parents with unlimited Credit Cards :rolleyes: Most people, including myself wouldn’t mind paying £20-£40 for the full game so their children can actually enjoy it without nagging parents for V-bucks, FIFA points, or App Store funds.

    Roll on Apple Arcade - no Pay 2 Win, micro transactions or ads, just £5 per month subscription for 5 devices. :):):)

    Installing pi-hole and using as the DNS has blocked ads on the games we play, only works if you're on the same network though.

    I'm sure I used to have ridiculous fishing but the new one on the play store is totally different. Used to be great!
