Room's Room doesn't need any introduction and 58works neither. All games are free and available in Google Play for Android devices and also in Apple Store.

Great News - After over 6 years our Mobile Monday is back!
Since some of our favourite game devs moved from creating PC games exclusively to mobile games, plus new ones arrived, let us introduce three beautiful escape games this Monday. They are all free and available in Google Play for Android devices (and also in Apple Store).
With perfect timing, Bart Bonte delivers refreshing and hopeful GREEN!
Spring is coming and so is mild GREEN - Bart Bonte introduces new color puzzle game, after energetic YELLOW, passionate RED, stylish BLACK and magic BLUE. At the moment, the game is available for mobile devices only. It takes several weeks usually till PC version.
Note: GREEN is now available for browsers
Bearing the fruit of thoughtful craftsmanship, Rudowski Brothers gifts us with The Trader of Stories - Chapter 2. After spending nearly a Blossoming in the human city of Bark, Little Willow's life seems fairly ordered. She works as a waitress and storyteller in Gofung's teashop, has acquaintances - if not friends - and generally makes do. But amnesia still bothers her, alongside an odd sense of not belonging. Until one day, a tall, dark, and mysterious guest arrives. Will she find the answers she seeks, or will trouble find her first?
For the newcomers to this series: while Chapter 2 is indeed enjoyable as a standalone game, it follows an intricate storyline that is most comprehensively appreciated when its predecessors are played first. This installment of the Big Old Tree that Dreams series follows Bell's Heart; A Grain of Truth; and Chapter One. A useful feature of Chapter Two is that it's mobile-friendly.
Bart Bonte, after YELLOW, RED and BLACK haven't forgotten about his fans and has created BLUE. Now we can play it on mobile devices only - Android or iOS - PC version will be available later. We'll let you know.
Note: BLUE is now available for PC
If you've ever felt like you don't have quite enough circles in your life, Florian van Strien's CircloO 2 might just be the game for you. This minimalist two-button platformer combines ball physics and puzzling elements. Roll your ball left and right with the arrow keys to collect circles. Each time you collect a circle, the arena grows a little and you'll find a new circle to collect. Collect all the circles and you get to progress to the next level where a fresh challenge (and a fresh game mechanic) awaits you.
Bart Bonte has completed Belgian flag finally - after YELLOW and RED, fabulous BLACK has arrived! At the moment, the game is available only for Android or iOS devices - PC version will be later (last time it took several weeks).
Your goal is to turn the gamescreen pitch-black in each of fifty unique levels, so you need to solve fifty different puzzles to get congratulations for completing the game. The game covers broad range of puzzles as both predecessors, and you need all what's inside you, wits, intuition, logic, memory and quick fingers (luckily, not super quick). And patience and selfcontrol, new phones don't grow on trees, you know. Clean touch screen of your device helps too.
Note: BLACK is now available for Browsers
BestLuck is a mystery emotional atmospheric adventure game. In the infinite growing forest, you only lean onto the girl to find a path and solve the puzzle by witnessing clues that are visible only through certain door frames. Its atmosphere has ambiguities between what horror-game has and what romance game narrative goes.
This time, everything starts coming together. The latest Rusty Lake project, Cube Escape: Paradox has arguably the most unique player experience in the series. Accompanied by a short live feature (which I personally recommend watching after finishing Chapter 1 - it contains some spoilers), Paradox blends amazing production value and multimedia elements with the gameplay that Rusty Lake fans know and love. The game is divided into two installments, with Chapter 1 free to play (donations encouraged), and Chapter 2 available for a minute fee.
Need a chill game to kill time while you're waiting in line? Animal Crossing Pocket Camp is a mobile game that lets you run your own campsite with animal campers, and is the first mobile game in the Animal Crossing series. Many of the previous Animal Crossing games had you live in a town full of animal villagers and provided a home you could decorate. But while in Pocket Camp you are given a personal RV that travels around with you.
Now and then a puzzle game emerges that feels like a breath of fresh air. In the case of Sinkr, a 2D puzzle game by Wahler Digital, this is achieved largely through the minimalist design of the game's visuals and the originality of its mechanics. The game starts you off with a deceivingly simple task: guide the pucks home to their circular zones. To do this, you are given an array of hooks that you pull along in a set direction by winding a winch-like hexagon. Simply click and hold the hexagon to set the hooks in motion, using the grid in the background as a positioning guide if needed. The introductory levels are a breeze but things quickly become a bit more thought-intensive as new mechanics are added and combined in interesting ways.
Rusty Lake has become one of the gaming community's favorite vacation destinations and the developers are responding to this with a string of projects that seem to only increase in scope. With yet another game already in the works and a short film planned for future release, Rusty Lake shows no signs of slowing down. Rusty Lake Paradise (available for PC, Mac, Android, and iOS) is the latest addition to the already extensive series, and is the third premium game to be released along with Rusty Lake Hotel and Rusty Lake Roots.
Good fortune (and fun!) will come to those who dig through the archives.
