Playing games on smartphones is an experience that is just getting better by the day. Android games seem to get better year after year and we sometimes spend hours on our smartphone playing them. And now that even mid-range smartphones opt for high-end processors, you don’t really have to burn a hole in your pocket to enjoy a good gaming experience on your phone.
If you, like us, love to play games on your mobile phone, then we have something for you that you’ll like. We have curated a list of the 10 best free Android games that you can try. Check out our list now to see if your favourite has been included in it:
Probably the most popular game of the year award should go to PUBG. So much has been written about it and it happens to be among the favourites of every hard-core gamer. PUBG is basically an acronym for PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds. Just like the PC version, it is a free survival shooter in which you get dropped on an island with 99 other players and the goal is to survive till the end. Download here.
We totally love this game. There’s hardly anything more relaxing than playing Alto’s Adventure. The game only has one-touch controls and you have to get past various obstacles while collecting coins, magnets and leafs. If you have played Temple Run or the mobile version of Super Mario, you’ll be reminded of them in a way. But what we liked was the day-to-night transitions and the sound effects that make you feel like you are actually there. Put on headphones while playing the game if you really want to immerse yourself in it. Download here.
Now this is a game that hardly ever lasts more than 10 minutes. You need to find your weapons and shields and then hide and wait for your opponents to step out. You can also make some in-app purchases to make the game even more fun. Download here.
This is a first person shooter game. It has a base camp where you can buy weapons, a place to gamble to get currency that you can use in the game, a even a black market where you can get new items. The game has a totally futuristic look you can make a number of in-app purchases if you wish. Download here.
Heart Star is a very interesting game. In most games, we are supposed to control one player. Here, we have to control two. The levels are like mazes and two characters have to be controlled so that both can reach their respective exit. The difficulty level goes up as the levels increase but on the upside, there are no penalties. Download here.
Asphalt 9: Legends
If you have been playing other Asphalt games, chances are that you have tried this one already. It’s basically a new version of the same car racing game where you get to drive the fanciest of cars in locations like Miami, San Francisco and even Himalayas. The mission is to beat everyone else. We have always enjoyed Asphalt racing games by Gameloft, and this one is no exception. Download here.
The concept of Plague is highly unconventional. You basically are in control of an epidemic and you have to make sure it spreads throughout the world before anyone can find a cure for it. In other words, you are out there to kill everyone and you can use tools to add symptoms, increase methods of communicability, etc. There is also a newsfeed where you can keep a tab of the effects of the epidemic you are spreading. Download here.
The Battle of Polytopia
In The Battle of Polytopia, you have to take over the world and in order to fulfill your mission, you can pick from different races that come with their own weaknesses and strengths, update your technologies, and unlock new units. You can play the game alone against the AI or invite your friends to play with you. Download here.
In Vainglory, you can either play a quick match or a lengthy battle depending on the time you have. You will get over 30 characters to choose from. Download here.
Hero Academy 2
In the original Hero Academy, you get to choose from different armies and fight a battle with your friends. Hero Academy 2 is an enhanced version of the same but comes with better animations and graphics and more difficult challenges. Download here.
