Social isolation gives us a lot of free time. Despite the fact that some use it to be productive, as it happens with virtual courses, it is also important to conserve space for leisure. This can be satiated in different ways: watching movies, reading books, and even exercising.

However, there are also other options to have fun. For example, according to the Infobae media, the World Health Organization recommended trying different video games to “take care of mental health”, since it is one of the most popular entertainment media during this time.

Now, the fact that you do not have consoles or a powerful computer does not mean that you cannot enjoy some free titles for smartphones. There are games for all tastes and types of players, so we suggest that you join us to know this list for Android users.

1. Mario Kart Tour

We all know Mario Kart ... but not all people knew that there is a special version for mobile. According to the media La Vanguardia, this adaptation of the Nintendo consoles has a substantial difference: it is played vertically, in addition to the fact that there is no need to accelerate since it is done automatically.

In this way, this title is ideal to play a fun game with friends, where they must see who will reach the finish line first, using different powers to take advantage or obstruct your opponents.

2. Trivia Crack

In this case, we are talking about an ideal title for those who want to test their learning abilities, since it will invite us to compete with people to see who guesses more questions. There are several different categories and the first person to get all the characters representing these areas of knowledge wins.

3. Fortnite

It is one of the most popular battle royale titles, where all users appear on a map under the same conditions. The objective? Be the last team to remain standing.

If you are looking for fun, here you have it guaranteed. In addition, the creator company, Epic Games, always releases new updates to add content, as the Clarín website comments, since they recently added the mutants of Marvel.

Sports lovers will be saddened by the inability to watch leagues or practice their favorite activities. However, that doesn't mean that they can't do it virtually, as this basketball game does.
