The Best Android Games Of All Time
Whether you love strategy, roguelikes, deck-builders, gachas or MOBAs, Android has an endless supply of great games for you to play. With thousands of titles on offer, it can be hard to pick just one! This is why we decided to compile a list of the best Android games of all time.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
When we say the best mobile game on the market, GTA: San Andreas is the name that comes to mind. It may be a few years old now, but it still remains one of the most compelling open world sandboxes on any platform. With a full cast of characters and a huge world to explore, GTA: San Andreas is as engaging on a smartphone as it is on a PC or Mac.
Despite its limitations as a microdev game, Destinies is one of the most beautiful and nuanced RPGs on the Android platform. It has everything a great RPG needs – an engaging story, complex character interactions, a tight combat system, superb graphics and Xcom-light tactical gameplay. It is also a very polished experience, delivering everything you want out of a AAA title without compromising on anything.
Ark: Survival Evolved
Ark: Survival Evolved is a game that has become an enduring classic since entering Early Access three years ago. Its vast open world and vast array of dinosaurs make it a must-have for all fans of the genre, and its high-quality presentation and gameplay make it a real contender for one of the best games on Android.
Slay the Spire
For those who love card games, Slay the Spire is a must-play, solo roguelike that offers a challenging challenge while requiring a lot of theorycrafting to progress. You won’t be able to find this in many other mobile card games, making it a truly special experience.
Baba Is You
If you’re looking for something a little different, then you should check out Baba Is You, which was ported to Android from PC and consoles and features touch controls. This is a puzzle game where touching words on the screen can trigger new functionality, which makes it a great exercise in out-of-the-box thinking.
If a little bit of wackiness is what you’re after, then you should definitely give Jetpack Joyride a try. It’s a game that never gets tired and is fun on both phones and tablets, as you ride your jetpack through endless levels, collecting coins to upgrade your jetpacks and clothing, dodging missiles and zappers, and riding vehicles to see how far you can go.
If you love directing subway trains and want to see what the future of train design could look like, then you should definitely check out Mini Metro. This game is a brilliant example of the minimalism that makes the modern Android platform such a good fit for mobile gaming, and it’s a real pleasure to play.
If you’re a fan of comic-styled puzzle mechanics and need something a little different, then Framed 2 is the perfect title for you. It’s a sequel to the 2014 smash hit, Framed, and reintroduces the comic-styled puzzle mechanic that made the original such an incredible success. It’s a very clever mashup, and a must-play for all fans of the genre.
