It’s the most wonderful time of the year . . . to be stuck in an airplane terminal. Holiday travel is exciting in that you get to spend some quality time eating inordinate amounts of quality food with your loved ones, but it can also mean massive travel bottlenecks. That’s fun for noone, but you can make the trip much more tolerable if you have your smartphone or tablet at your disposal. Why not give some of these games (which also happen to be airplane mode friendly) a try the next time you’re stuck waiting during holiday transit.

It’s a difficult time for fans of Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! series, as Part 4 has been officially delayed until this Thursday. Developer Inkle decided it would be best to push the game back so as not to be overshadowed by last week’s iOS 10 release. That’s actually pretty smart, if you think about it! We want the best for Sorcery!, so we can stand to wait a bit longer, but it will be tough. What do we do in the meantime?

Why not explore some of the other fine storytelling adventures on mobile? There’s a lot of great interactive fiction out there—here are our recommendations!
