Angry Birds 2 and 14 other addictive apps

Six years.

That's how long the war has raged between Rovio's egg-pinching pigs and angered birds. Since then, there's been an Star Wars partnership, a TV series, books and an army of plush toys. There's even a feature length film due May 2016. 

But the next major instalment in one of the biggest video game titles of all time (42 million downloads and counting) has arrived on smartphones in the form of Angry Birds 2

In anticipation of Rovio's sequel filling your empty hours (or stealing the full ones), we've picked the brains of the app-obsessed Google Play team to provide a list of the most addictive arcade and action titles available for your thumbs. Prepare for some serious procrastination.
