Playing computer games was once seen as the realm of the teenager, maybe the young male. But with the rise of the smartphone, more and more people enjoy playing a variety of games and women in particular have found the fun in playing games apps. But what are the best game apps for women across different devices?
So not for every woman but girlie games are great to bring out your inner fashion designer, model or simply indulge your love of clothes. Star Girl is a role playing game where you play an aspiring celebrity who has to take on jobs such as acting, modelling or singing. The game involves buying clothes, dating and all the fun of a celebrity lifestyle – and it is surprisingly addictive!

Stardom: The A-List and Stardom: Hollywood are similar games where the focus is a little more on the career building and less on the clothes. It has a look to it that fans of games like Super Mario will feel right at home with but there is plenty of actual storylines involved.
