Drop7 has been around for a while now, but game publisher Zynga has updated it for a new breed of gamers making it an always addictive title. The premise is simple and easy to learn, but mastering is difficult, so it’s another of those “just one more try” games that are so hard to put down.

There are a lot of simple but addictive games on the iOS and Android, and one of those is definitely 1010 from developer GramGames.
