Snow and ice makes for some excellent platforming challenges, but developers get creative and find other ways to turn the snowy theme on its head. Here are some of our personal favorites.

This winter-fied version of the popular voxel driving game is a worthy successor to the original.

Banner Saga 2

Banner Saga 2 is a deep, tactical RPG set in the far north. It tells the mournful story of a clan travelling to safety in a world on the brink of destruction. Its rich world is based on Viking mythology, and the moral decisions you’ll have to make are just as challenging and complex as the strategic combat.

These games will do the job if you’re trying to get into the spirit of the season. Mix up some hot cocoa and settle in for a toasty night inside playing some of the best games on mobile.
