For some, commuting to work is a piece of cake. You slip onto your driving seat to cruise from your door straight to the office, perhaps listening to the morning news, an audiobook, or your favorite podcast.

However, many commuters go through an altogether different experience, one packed with delays, platform changes, and re-routes due to congestion or cancellations. Here are some of the games you can play on even the most disrupted journey.

Fallout Shelter

This game is nothing short of genius, allowing players to dip in and out as they please, as they develop their very own underground disaster bunker.

Infused with the sort of dry wit that will have you giggling on the bus or metro, Fallout Shelter is also challenging enough to have your brain up to speed by the time you enter the office elevator.

Casino Games

Casino games are ideal for even the trickiest of commutes, as players can make a quick spin in the blink of an eye, or even choose an auto-play option so that the next time they flash their phone they have a surprise waiting for them.

For those players who enjoy an early morning or after work session at the online tables, it always makes sense to check which sites are offering up bonuses.


Ever since Lemmings was released many moons ago, a whole host of developers have tried to emulate the classic’s eternal appeal.

Such games are perfectly suited to the mobile format and one of the best is Badland, where you take control of a creature resembling a fat two-legged hedgehog. Help your little beast through a multitude of beautiful backdrops and puzzles, taking breaks whenever you want along the way.

Subway Surfers

If you go to work on a subway, what better way to pass the time than imagining yourself surfing the very carriage you are traveling in.

Although we would never suggest you try this bizarre version of surfing out in the real world, we can definitely recommend the game.

Asphalt 9: Legends

If you find yourself stuck in traffic, you might want to dream about being at the wheel of a supercar that’s above the law. If this is the case then you could do a lot worse than Asphalt 9: Legends, which will have you drifting round bends, raising hell, and burning rubber.
