    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Are these icons on the homescreen or in the App Drawer (the list of all of your apps)? Are they for suspicious items, like some game you never installed, or some kind of "antivirus" or other security app?

    Are they actual games that were installed, or do they just bring you to the Google Play Store app page, or to a website? Are they on the homescreen or the App Drawer?

    They're there because some other app (probably another game) you installed either has adware, or does some other sneaky stuff that might not technically be malware, but is sure annoyingware. You should try uninstalling your recent apps to see if they go away.

    Consider doing a factory reset, after backing up or syncing all of your data.
