If you like puzzles more than graphics, check out Simon Tatham's puzzle collection. There are 38 different puzzle games. It's free and open source with no ads or registration and puzzles are generated within the app so there are no downloads other than the app itself. There are ports to most major OSs and version you can play in your browser. Simon Tatham's explanation with pictures of the puzzles, links to the rules of each puzzle, and links to various versions is at:http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/puzzles/ If you just want to try it for yourself, the Android version is at:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=name.boyle.chris.sgtpuzzles&hl=en I highly recommend it as my biggest time waster.

If you like these games, check out Thwart. It is very challenging and requires planning and logical thinking. Some of the levels, especially the higher ones, might take quite a long time to solve. It also contains some quite complex element arrangements. The game is made up of snippets, of crumbs, different pebbles which turn into rocks to stimulate and keep you engaged.
