In today’s article we are going to show you our picks for the best idle games for Mobile, so you can have a wide selection of games to fill your device, if you don’t have a whole lot of time at hand to play other types of games (or you simply enjoy idle games).
You can have several types of idle games, such as idle clickers, incremental upgrades and whatnot, so we will give you details about each of the games that we’ve chosen, so you know exactly how to best select them according to your taste, and maybe even try new ones that we suggest!
Now even if not all of the games are exactly the same, which means that in some you will have to be idle less than in others, we’ll list all of the best ones so you can have plenty of options to choose from!
So, thus being said, here’s our picks for the best idle games for Mobile (iOS and Android)!
Idle Theme Park Tycoon
This is one of the best idle games that I have played by a long run. Basically you will have to make constant upgrades (there are tons of them) and select the best ones to bring u the most profit. You will have a constant tracker to tell you which of the attractions is making the most money, so it also helps you.
Not only that, but you can buy bigger and better islands to build your theme park on, and all the little upgrades that you make will reflect in the game (so if you buy an extra seat, you will actually see that extra seat). It’s a great game, and you can achieve anything pretty much as long as you log from time to time to make upgrades.

Idle Bud Farm – Hempire Farm Growing Tycoon
This game is pretty fun, because you basically grow your very own weed crops and use them for profit. It is mostly fun because you can have several types of weed growing, each giving a different passive income (and they are really colorful, so it’s nice to just watch them too).
The game is not that much idle, as it is idle clicker. Basically you have to tap, tap, tap constantly, and the money will start rolling in. When you stop that, you will make way less profits. The game has plenty of options to help you boost these profits, so it’s a pretty fun game if you like this type of idle clicker games.
We’ve had quite a blast playing Idle Bud Farm – Hempire Farm Growing Tycoon, so if you want to give it a try, make sure you also check out our game guide right here!
You can download the game from Google Play.
This game is one of my absolute all time favorites. It’s got a little bit of idle-ness, and a little bit of non-idle-ness! In this game you basically have all kinds of (famous and less famous) art pieces from all across the world, which you can keep on display in your very own gallery.
All of the art exhibits give you passive income, but you also have to find more artworks and bid in auctions to win them. It’s overall pretty exciting, and it’s not your typical idle game where you log in once a day and tap a couple times and that’s it – instead, you have plenty of stuff to do.
I definitely suggest giving it a shot, because it’s going to be very fun! Also, we’ve got a game guide for this as well for when you want to try it out!
This game was extremely fun for me, since all of the things you do in game are basically you (and a bunch of other hackers) beating computer viruses. You make currency from doing so, which allows you to purchase upgrades and hire more hackers, which in turn let you pass more difficult levels and beat tougher enemies.
Overall, the game has very nice and simple graphics, and very fun characters. Especially since you can see the small lines of dialogue that they use to interact with each other. Hacking Hero is truly an idle game, in the sense that you can only do upgrades (and if you want to, tap on the virus to beat it faster – but it’s not mandatory).
Check out our Hacking Hero game guide to learn how to best make the upgrades, because we’ve had a ton of fun playing this game. Oh, and one last point I feel like I should mention – the hacker – leet language is super fun to read!
You can download the game from Google Play.
Mr. Kim, The Mid-Aged Knight
This game is one of the most fun idle dungeon fighter games you will find – at least, it was for me. You play as Mr. Kim, who is basically a “Mid-Aged Knight” (as the name suggests) and he adventures through the dungeons and fights all kinds of dragons and monsters.
It’s fun because of the interactions as well, and when the game just starts, you’ll be presented with the introductory comic which places you right into the story. The game has amazing pixel graphics, and a lot of fun interactions.
It’s got quests and companions, and a ton of outfits as well. Check out our game guide to learn more about the game! It’s definitely worth giving it a shot!
Big Bang Evolution & Homo Evolution
Both of these games follow the same pattern, which is: unlock a new species (or item) by combining two of the previous ones. It gets increasingly more difficult, the more you unlock, but there are a ton of upgrades you can make to help you with this.
Both of the games are super fun, because you can choose various paths to follow, and even if you leave the games for a while, they will continue to progress as much as the upgrades allow you to.
The only difference is that Big Bang Evolution has you playing with bombs, while Homo Evolution follows the evolution of species. Either way, both of them are equally fun and entertaining! And of course, we have our very own Big Bang Evolution guide and Homo Evolution guide to help you all throughout the game!
Idle Evil Clicker
This game follows you into the depths of Hell, where you have to basically build your own “hell”. The game follows a pretty simple pattern, where you torture the damned in various manners and try to collect tons of souls to make upgrades.
It’s extremely fun to watch (if you don’t mind the heat) and you can have a pretty good time in this game. Check out our game guide to learn how to make the right upgrades!
This game is definitely a fun one, featuring my favorite – pixel graphics. Bitcoin Billionaire is an idle clicker, which means that the more you tap the more money you make. It’s overall pretty entertaining up to the point where you have to put down your device and start doing other stuff, because it’s really addictive!
All you really have to do though, is follow our guide and you will always do the right thing in the game. For the lovers of idle clickers, this is definitely a must try in my agenda!
Idle Zoo Tycoon / Idle Tap Zoo
This game is super captivating and relaxing, and if you want an idle game where you don’t have to go crazy and lose a finger (from tapping non stop) in the process, then this is the one for you.
You basically have to manage a zoo, with all of its perks, and make all kinds of upgrades to keep the money rolling. The graphics are absolutely lovely – again, I am biased towards pixel graphics – and you will definitely have a good time playing it, even if it’s a little bit slow compared to other games in this list.
Check out our Idle Zoo Tycoon game guide to learn how to make the right upgrades in the game and build the perfect zoo!
Idle Planet Miner
This is an awesome game if you want a game that you can actually play during your office hours, because it doesn’t require a lot of time invested. It’s a truly idle game!
In Idle Planet Miner you manage a few mines, which you will have to keep running every 2 hours or so, because the production stops after some time. It’s not a big deal – basically, all you have to do is log every now and then and keep your mines running.
You will have plenty of missions and tasks to do, so make sure you check back often! Also, check out our game guide to learn exactly how to make the upgrades for the best rewards!
This idle game takes the mobile coloring games to a whole new lazy level: idle. In Idle Painter you have to color various pieces of artwork in a beautiful and soothing painting game.
Much like the number coloring games that you’ve seen, this one is even simpler – all you have to do is make upgrades to speed up the process and add your very own touch to each piece. Check out our game guide for the best Idle Painter experience!
Idle Coffee Corp
Do you like coffee? Let’s be honest – who doesn’t?! Well, if you ever dreamed of being a successful barista or even owning your very own coffee shop, you can try that in this idle game!
You will have a variety of fun looking customers, each looking to buy a coffee (from hipsters to normal people) and you will be looking to serve them with the best coffee you got. It’s a fun little idle clicker, where you will make all kinds of upgrades in the hope that you will create the ultimate coffee shop.
The game has some pretty fun looking graphics, an odd combination between LEGO humans and Minecraft (maybe leaning more towards the Minecraft side), and you’ll be tasked to serve all the customers and give them your best! You should check out our game guide to learn how to deal with this, and make the game much easier!
These would be our picks for the best idle games for mobile! There are a ton of idle games which we have found pretty fun, but these are the ones which kept us coming back again and again to keep making upgrades and pass stages.
