breaks can help you to stay motivated on the job, and one of the ways that we like to clear our minds is with game breaks. We've gathered together a few of our tablet favourites and would love to hear about the games you love to spend a little bit of time with during your work day.
iPad Pocket Planes: The goal of this game is to build a profitable, large airline, and gameplay is simple and relies heavily on time. There is only so much you can do before waiting, which makes it a nice game to turn to when you're short on time and want something quick and engaging. Free
Plants vs Zombies HD: Can you call an app a classic? Well, if there ever was a classic game app, this would be it, and although I don't play it as much as I used to back in my early days of iPad ownership, I do still break out a minigame during a lunch break fairly often. $7.49 Android, $2.99
Obliteration: Physics based game with fun graphics. Gameplay is simple; get the abandoned buildings filled with zombies below a certain line by dropping bombs. Although the premise sounds kind of awful, the game does feel a bit cheery, and it's a quick play, which makes it great for when you want a quick 5 minute break. Also available for Android. Free
Android Angry Birds Space: While the Angry Birds toys may seem a bit old, the introduction of space is a fun reboot to the franchise, and playing a level is a fine way to spend a break. Free, iPad $2.99
[WordHero]: I can never get enough games with words, and this lightweight game with short rounds is perfect to pick up when you have a very short break. Free
Wind-up Knight: Think classic Mario adventures, if Mario was a cute robot knight. I find this game a bit addicting, and although I usually spend more than five minutes at a time on it, I can at least get through one level on a lunch break. Also available for iPad. Free
