Best Snapchat Games and how to play them
As we have mentioned, there are more than 50 games to play on Snapchat. Obviously, there are some games that are not enjoyable enough to spend your time on. So here is a shortlist of a few games you might enjoy.
#1 Hex FRVR
Many of us grew up playing Tetris during our childhood. If you want to relive those days, Hex FRVR is the perfect game for you. It is a very similar game where you are given a hexagonal plate and different shapes of blocks.
You will get three options of blocks to choose from (sometimes you get the same block on multiple options).
Place those blocks to fill up a straight line to earn points. If you misplace the blocks and do not have any place left to put the new blocks, time to play again because it’s game over!
#2 Zombie Rescue Squad
If you are less of a puzzle person and more of a shooting game enthusiast, the zombie rescue squad might be the perfect game for you.
In this game, you have to shoot zombies and rescue survivors by staying close to them. There are in-game items such as medicine and weapons to help you in your battle against the zombies.
The player automatically shoots the zombies when they are in range. So it’s all up to how well you can navigate your player.
#3 Tiny Royale
With battle royales on the rage in recent times, tiny royale is here to give you a miniature battle royale experience on Snapchat.
The rules are exactly like any other where you need to be the last man or squad standing by collecting weapons and items and eliminating enemies.
Each match has up to 30 players and you can form squads with up to four players.
#4 Trivia Party
This one is for all the nerds and quizzers out there! As the name suggests, you take part in trivia questions as per your interest.
You can choose from many topics and take part in trivia regarding them by yourself or with a friend. First-round starts with 64 players with half the players being eliminated each round. You can also make your own questions once you reach level 5.
#5 Chess Quest
No game list is ever complete without the classic chess. Chess quest is another chess game where you can play with your friends for a casual break or do ranked matches to prove your skillset in chess.
#6 Word Blitz

#7 Ludo Club
In recent times, the Indian board game Ludo has seen a significant rise in popularity. Noticing the demand, Snapchat collaborated with the Moonfrog Labs and added Ludo Club on Snapchat. Now you can play Ludo with your friends and families or random online players on Snapchat.
#8 Animal Restaurant
The animal restaurant is a game exactly like its name suggests. Here you run a restaurant for animals of all kinds. You take their order and they will pay you in Cod, the in-game currency.
You can use it to upgrade your restaurant, hire staff and do many more similar activities. While most of the customers are good for your business, there are a few like the rabbit or the skunk who will do harm to your business.
If you want a stress-free and uplifting gaming experience on Snapchat, this is definitely the one for you.
#9 Subway Surfers Airtime
It is almost impossible to find someone who plays mobile games but has not heard of subway surfers. Snapchat brings its own version of 2D subway surfers where you compete with others to reach the finishing line first.
You can tap to jump and perform airtime combos. Perfect jumps will increase your speed while misplaced ones will take away your speed.
#10 Color Together
If you had a tiring day and want to refresh yourself a little, color together might be the best option. Despite its name color together, it is a single-player game where you tap on a picture to fill up a drawing with appropriate colors.
It has very soothing music and zeroes rush or competitiveness to help you relax. You can unlock new drawings by playing campaign mode.
#11 Ready Chef Go

The faster you deliver their food the more you earn from tips. Here you compete with another player to see who manages their shop better to earn more.
Mergelings is a strategic and puzzle game where you have to match the same shapes to upgrade them to another shape. The shapes are placed on a 4×4 box. But the twist here is, that by swiping left or right, you do not move just a single shape or row.
Rather you move all the rows in the box towards the direction of your swiping and it is the same with columns. Merge and unlock the highest shape to unlock new levels.
#13 Ready Set Golf
Ready Set Golf is a golf game where you slide the ball to shoot it towards a linear trajectory and reach the hole. The golf course includes obstacles like pools and bouncing walls.

#17 Let’s Go Hoops!
Let’s Go Hoops! Is a multiplayer game where you compete with two other players (friends or random online players) and try to shoot a basketball down the hoops.
As you score, you move further away from the hoop. 5 points are required to finish the stage and whoever earns it first wins.
But do not think you can easily shoot the hoops as there are moving obstacles that momentarily block your way towards the hoop.
#18 Sugar Slam
Sugar Slam is a very Candy Crush-esque game where you match candies together to earn points. But in this case, you compete with others in matching the candies in a row or column for a limited amount of time.
Whoever earns the most points within the given amount of time is the winner.
Revamp is a game similar to the very popular pandemic era game Among Us. There are six characters in an abandoned mansion of which 5 are renovators and one is a vampire.
The vampire tries to blow up the mansion or kill the renovators while they try to renovate. If you liked Among Us, you should definitely give it a try.
#20 Snake Squad
Snake Squad is a game where you collect dots to grow in size as a snake and kill other players (snakes in this case).
To kill other snakes, you need to be significantly larger than them. Use your survival instinct to climb the leaderboard.
#21 Color Galaxy
Color Galaxy is a territory conquering game where you play to expand your territory and win. In this game, players are given a small territory at the beginning and a ride (which could be anything from unicorns to cars).
After getting out of your territory, you need to create closed loops with the trail your ride leaves to expand your territory. If you cut the path of someone’s trail, that player gets killed and needs to revive or play another game.
The same could happen with you too. So be careful when expanding your territory!
#22 Crazy Run
Crazy Run is a tap and race game where you need to tap on your screen to move your character forward. But as the name suggests, it is not as simple as that.
On your way toward the finishing line, you will be faced with many obstacles. You have to stop at certain points, you will need to time your jumps with precision to avoid obstacles and move towards distant platforms and so on.
So if you like playing games that challenge your reflex, Crazy Run should definitely be on your list.
Sliders is a puzzle game where you are given four robots of four different colors with the objective of taking them to a portal respective to their color.
But on the way, boxes are placed to prevent them from reaching those portals. You need to slide the boxes in the direction shown to create a path towards their corresponding portals.
You can also challenge your friends to beat your time record and the number of required moves.
Swipeout is another obstacle-avoiding racing game where you have to swipe around to avoid the obstacles set in your way.
The difference between Swipeout and other games is that Swipeout is not limited to just jumping, crouching, and 3 lanes. Rather it has a more flexible set of movements which makes it even more challenging.
#25 Sling Racers
Sling Racers is a reach the finishing line type of game where you have to complete your race track by slinging on different points.
You can sling on these points by tapping on your screen when you are close to them. If you hold the screen then you will keep slinging.
Holding longer than required might send you backward. So be careful of how long you keep slinging.
Snapchat is a wonderful social media platform that brings a lot of uniqueness on the table and Snapchat games are one of them. If you are a Snapchat user and have not tried these games yet, you should definitely give them a shot.
