Truck drivers have their own idea about the best entertainment value at the end of a long day of driving. Some people like to read, some like to hit the casinos, some like to play arcade and pinball games in truck stop lounges. If you feel like just hunkering down in the cab for some quiet time, mobile phone games are a cheap and fun time waster that can keep your mind sharp. Some puzzle games have even shown to have beneficial effects on the brain and mood.
What we have here are a mix of free and paid Android games that we think truck drivers will like. As usual, we encourage you to explore online Android App marketplaces, like Amazon, iTunes, and others to find the games you like best. You can click on the pic of the phone to go directly to the Amazon App Store (if you have an Amazon account, you can start using the Amazon Android App store immediately for free) and start searching for your favorites.

Pool Master Pro is one of the most popular pool table simulations out there. There’s good reason too – the controls are simple and intuitive, the ball physics are believable and there’s a lot of variety to choose from, including table type, colors, cue weight, and game type (8 and 9 ball modes).
This one is #1 because it’s easy to play, fun and free!
There’s a lot of pinball simulations out there for Android OS. Some seem to have been rushed, or just missing something. Not Pinball by Magma Mobile. They got this one right. There are three different tables to choose from, along with skill levels and speed. The tables feature good play, rather than complex bells and whistles (we’ll leave that to the real tables out there).
