Best Android Games to play

Today we will give you our 10 of the best Android games that can easily melt the hours of the day away. So whether you’re looking for a best game that can really sink your teeth into or are simply looking for something with a bit more depth than your average mobile release, then we will give you a roundup of the best Android games to play while you’re stuck at home.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Castlevenia: Symphony of Night Trailer

Konami’s classic Metroidvania title Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was recently released on the Play Store to everyone’s surprise, especially since it’s available for $2.99, which is a great deal. If you’ve yet to play SotN, it’s a beautiful 2D platformer that offers non-linear gameplay, so exploration is definitely encouraged. The primary campaign should take about eight or nine hours to beat, so it will take much more than one sitting to work your way through this release, which is why this is the perfect title to pick up if you’re looking to waste more than a few hours in the weeks to come.

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is a farming and life simulator that can easily offer hundreds of hours of gameplay for just about any player looking to dive into this beast. Sure, things start off simple enough, by planting a few crops and maybe raising a chicken or two, and that’s all well and good if you prefer to play at a casual pace, but if you’re really looking for a game with some depth, not to mention an endless campaign, then Stardew Valley would be my top choice in today’s roundup. Just keep in mind that farming sims can be an acquired taste, though Stardew Valley is easily one of the more accessible titles in the niche genre.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Battle Chasers: Night war Android Trailer

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an excellent turn-based RPG that plays similarly to the classic RPGs from the ’90s. You can expect excellent graphics that suit the current crop of RPGs available on consoles and PC, which is why the Android port for Battle Chasers: Nightwar is such an exceptional release. So if you’re looking for a console-quality RPG experience on mobile that offers at minimum a 30-hour campaign, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is easily one of the best classic-style RPGs released on Android in the last few years. Just keep in mind that this is a demanding game, so high-end hardware is recommended.

Summer Catchers

Summer Catchers is a gorgeous auto-runner from Noodlecake Studios, and its a port of the PC game that was released on Steam last year. The Android version was only released last month but should be on everyone’s radar since this is a gorgeous title that plays similarly to Alto’s Adventure, and it’s a premium release, unlike its inspiration. So if you’d like to kill some time by endlessly running through a colorful world that mixes racing, story, rhythm and puzzle elements into a unique but familiar package, Summer Catchers is an excellent choice.

Bad North: Jotunn Edition

Bad North: Jotunn Edition Android Trailer

Bad North: Jotunn Edition is a premium RTS roguelike that contains striking art and exceptional strategic gameplay. This gameplay revolves around real-time mechanics, where survival is often the best victory condition you can hope for. This means the 6-hour campaign offers a unique setup where each stage is procedurally generated, and so each playthrough should offer a unique experience, providing the minimal RTS with some longevity. Amazingly the title’s gameplay is very deep despite the minimal design, so don’t let its simplistic graphics fool you.

Disgaea 1 Complete

Disgaea 1 Complete Android Trailer

Disgaea 1 Complete is a port of the remaster that made its way to consoles in 2018, and it’s easily a title that just about anyone could spend hundreds of hours with. Its graphics are indeed improved over the original Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and controller support is included, plus the newly-added touchscreen controls work well too. Cloud saves are also supported, which means you can easily pick up and play the game no matter your Android device of choice. Really, the only problem with this release is the fact that it costs $33, but what you get in return is a quality SRPG that offers a 40-hour campaign, not to mention endless grinding for those that are looking for it.

Monetization: $32.99 / no ads / no IAPs

Tetris®

Tetris Android Trailer

EA recently pulled its mobile Tetris titles due to a license change. Those removals were then countered by the new owner of the license with the release of Tetris, the very game listed here. Luckily, this new version is pretty good, where anyone can play for free thanks to ad support. Players also have the choice to remove these ads through a single in-app purchase if they prefer a premium experience. There are also themes available, even if you don’t pay to remove the game’s ads, which is a nice touch since I’m not a big fan of the default 3D theme. All in all, this is one of the best Tetris titles to grace the Play Store in years, so if you’re itching to stack some Tetriminos for hours on end, now’s the best time to do so.

Space Grunts 2

Space Grunts 2 Trailer

OrangePixel’s Space Grunts 2 takes the tried and true fun of the original title and turns it on its head by adding a delightful card-based mechanic to the roguelike. So instead of collecting weapons, you’ll collect and utilize cards that often offer a much more robust way to take down your foes. So really, Space Grunts 2 serves as a polished sequel that also brings something entirely new to the table, and let me tell you it’s a blast to play. Hands-down, Space Grunts 2 is my favorite roguelike to land on the platform this year, and since it’s a roguelike, you can pretty much play it endlessly.

Minecraft

At this point, Minecraft hardly needs an introduction, but it assuredly has earned its place on this list. Not only does this adorable survival game offer hundreds of hours of fun, but the optional build mode also offers enjoyable and endless sessions of block-building that many compare to the joys of building LEGOs. On top of this, since the title is offered as a premium release, you can share your purchase with your entire family without the need to spend any more money. So if you’ve got a pack of kids at home that you’d like to keep entertained, just remember that all premium Android titles can be shared through the Google Play Family Library.

Monetization: $6.99 / no ads / IAPs from $0.99 – $49.99

Grand Mountain Adventure: Snowboard Premiere

Grand Mountain Adventure: Snowboard Premiere Trailer

Last but not least, I have Grand Mountain Adventure, the best winter sports game on Android. Originally the title arrived on Android as a testing release, and over the last year, its developer has added lots of new stuff, such as snowboarding, twin-tip skis, new mountains, a plethora of new tricks, and a leaderboard for those looking to compare race times. Best of all, this is a free-to-play release that offers the first mountain for free, which makes it easy to decide if you like the game before you spend any money on the title. Rest assured, Grand Mountain Adventure is indeed worth the $4.99 in-app purchase that unlocks the entirety of the game.
