    Would love to find somewhat of a hidden gem. I find the app stores are so full of this freemium stuff and clones of the big boys that I just can't find anything worth sticking too.

    Would like it to be a fair f2p model or a cheap pay once game, any suggestions?

    I have dabbled in all of the above but once the grind/paywall comes up I just lose interest :( maybe I should retry one

    Boom beach doesn't have too huge a pay barrier IMO. I'm level 61 and haven't paid a penny so far.

    I like Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Its really good fun and constantly has updates. With all iconic characters.

    clash royale has the worst f2p model ever the chest timers are a joke.

    summoners war is pretty f2p friendly but a huge grind

    I'd agree with this, been playing it the last few months and it's quite enjoyable. Apparantly it becomes a big grind towards the end game, but then again what games aren't!

    Just downloaded Final Fantasy Brave Exvius as I've heard good things about that so will see how that goes.

    I've been playing HAWK: Freedom Squadron constantly the past week or so. Most I've ever played a game on my phone (S7 Edge).

    The only games I've really put much time into on mobile (generally hate mobile gaming):

    Super Cricket 2
    Organ Trail

    Organ Trail is the best of those, a really good game that's actually probably better on mobile/tablet than on PC.

    I tend to avoid 'addictive' games, though. They're all ****.

    I've spent a lot of times over the years playing Bloons tower defence. It does eventually become same old same old though. I too am looking for a new addictive mobile game for the iPad

    Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a pretty fun game, worth a look, can be played totally f2p as you gain items and currency (Lapis) as you complete story parts/level up/Events and the story is ok for a mobile game.

    I need some inspiration too. I'm sick and tired of the freemium model though and wouldn't mind paying the traditional way.

    Monument Valley is pretty fun.

    I enjoyed Framed as well.

    I am still addicted to the the Zen Pinball Alien tables. I used to play Aliens all the time but now I alternate between Isolation and AvP

    Hate the in game purchase model but peggle is still good. You can just change your clock settings to circumvent the buy more lives or wait crap.

    If you like space themed games have a look at:

    - AstroNest (can be complicated to start with but you'll understand it soon enough)
    - Galaxy On Fire 2 and 3 (GOF2 was better than GOF3).

    Simon's Cat the game has been released today. It's freemium which is a bit of a shame...
