Those living in some parts of the U.S. and Europe are surely feeling the cold right now. Along with the cold, some are probably feeling the boredom too as as there are far less things to do outside now.
However, opting to stay inside is not only a sensible idea at this time of the year, but can also be a fun one thanks to Android. So much so that you can even enjoy the winter without having to be outside in it by playing any of the number of winter-based Android games that are now available through the Google Play Store.
There's actually quite a few winter-themed games now available, including a ton of hockey games alone, so we've opted to make a different type of list this time. Here, you'll find simpler games that should make it easier to relax and enjoy the gameplay without thinking too much.
