Top 5 Mind-Bending Games on Android

Best ways to melt your brain on Android

Plenty of Android games claim to be "mind-bending". However, that usually translates to 'a bit tricky'.

When we refer to mind-bending games, we're talking about those games that play with your perceptions and turn your sense of the world upside down - sometimes literally.

The entries on this list of the Top 5 mind-bending games on Android have little in common beyond a shared intention to discombobulate.

I think I need a lie-down.

Whether you're trying to get your head around The Room Two's mystical time-and-space-shifting plot or scratching your head over its intricate locked box puzzles, we think Fireproof's sequel is the very definition of 'mind-bending'.

Shift has you doubting what's up and what's down; what's solid and what's not. It does so through a series of brain-warping platform-puzzles. About the only thing that's black and white here is the colour palette.

You won't have played a first-person game like Kairo before. There's no action, for starters. Just bemused wandering through a Tron-like world of abstract shapes and colours. There are spatial puzzles to negotiate here, but the atmosphere is one of isolation and confusion.
