Swerve and Destroy
Take aim at boredom

A quick and easy game that measures your reflexes, Swerve and Destroy is a great time-waster that tests how dexterous players can be while tilting their phones. Players, as a small, white ball, have to avoid and defeat a swarm of enemy red dots by collecting weapons and directing them in the right areas of the screen. Different weapon icons do different things — douse other players with water, send out a ring of fire, etc. — and most trigger immediately. Therefore, much of the strategy in the game is about catching the right weapons at just the right time in order to take out enough enemies to make it worth your while.

Simple, bite-size and fun, Swerve and Destroy is a great way to get in a game or two during small lulls in the day. Free, for Android devices.
