So I wanted to download one or two pick up or play games since I realized the only ones I have require online capabilities, and I'd rather just have a small game to play here and there. I really enjoy text based games on mobile (such as Reigns and Hatoful Boyfriend), or choose your own adventure type ones, like the Organ Trail (the zombie version of the Oregon Trail haha) or Ryan North's To Be or Not To Be. Preferably something that's on sale or under $5. Thanks!

My tastes may not run the same as yours, and I don't play many choose your own adventure type text games, so take these with a grain of salt. 

The Kairosoft games are all amazing if you like sim/management type games at all.  Game Dev Story was the first one on mobile and was really excellent, but Dungeon Village, Grand Prix Story, Kairobotica, Mega Mall Story, etc were all good from what I tried.  I think most of them even have free Lite versions to try, but they were well worth a few dollars to me.

Have you tried any of the Rayman games?  Jungle Run and Fiesta Run are quite great runners and look really nice.   I imagine they are similar to what the new Mario mobile game will be, transitioning a typical platformer game into a single button input.  I don't remember how much they were to purchase at the time.

Triple Town was fun and I think has a free version.  AlphaBear by the same developer got a lot of acclaim.

Some others to look into and see if they interest you: Super Stickman Golf, 10 More Bullets, Crossy Road, Desert Golfing, Plague Inc, Prune.  That's what I can think of off the top of my head.

Check out the Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series noted here, they're not just on iOS and are on sale for $.99 at the moment.

Thanks! I loved the Kairosoft games back when I had an iOS device, maybe I'll buy a newer game soon! I'm eyeing the Rayman ones right now, they look pretty neat smile
