Gaming on Android has always been growing at a far greater rate than any other platform. Android games have always managed to hit new heights every year. With the advent of Android Nougat and Vulkan API, the scope of progress for Android gaming is very high. Today the play store boasts more games than ever. But even then some games clearly stand out from the rest. Here in this post, we have compiled what we believe to be the best Android games to be present on the play store right now.

1.Vainglory

 

Vainglory is probably the best MOBA available on Android. It features a large cast of characters along with a fairly traditional MOBA experience. You’ll have your typical three lanes that you’ll need to attack or defend along with two teammates. You can play with or against real people or bots if you want to. The performance is top notch and there are over two dozen characters that you can unlock. There are also no energy bars or other freemium hoops to jump through. There is also a beta available that can use the Vulkan API, although it’s not quite stable yet. The game is available for free on the play store with in-app purchases.

2.Monument Valley 2

Like the original, Monument Valley 2 makes use of forced perspective to create truly mind bending puzzles. This time you control two characters: a woman and her child. The game revolves around these two as the child learns about the mysteries of the valley. The stunningly beautiful visuals are a big part of the appeal. The game has simple geometric style with bright colors and imaginative vistas. The puzzles may not be the hardest to solve but still are super fun. The game is available on the play store for around $4.99 and is definitely worth the price.

3.Injustice 2

Compared to the first Injustice game, Injustice 2 features better fighting dynamics, new moves, and even new characters to play as. The game even has a great storyline, and is set in the future when Batman and his team are fighting against those attempting to restore the Superman Regime. The original Injustice on mobile gave fans of the brawler a reason pick up the mobile version of the game as well as having it on console. Similarly, Injustice 2 manages to hold its own against the console version and is the essential app for anyone who wants to pummel superheroes and villains on the go. The only con here are the in-app purchases that range from a reasonable $2.48 to a ludicrous $125 for in-game items.

4.Unkilled

UNKILLED is the latest zombie shooter from MADFINGER Games, the same developers that brought us such Android games as Dead Trigger 2 and Shadowngun. In fact, UNKILLED has replaced Dead Trigger 2 as the best zombie shooter on Android right now. It features great graphics, over 300 missions to complete with boss fights, various weapons and things to unlock and upgrade, online PvP modes. There is also a push from developers to make the PvP more expansive and enjoyable. Yes, it’s a freemium game but it’s a definitely a good one. Again the game is available for free with only in-app purchases on the play store.

5.Clash Royale

Clash Royale is one of the most addictive mobile experiences out there, providing fast, exciting and rewarding gameplay perfectly suited for the platform. It gives a fantastic first impression, laying out nearly everything you need to know in the opening minutes. Supercell is well aware how many approach mobile gaming, forming an experience that favours snappy, rewarding gameplay with constant progression. The variety of imaginative characters at your disposal is overwhelming at first, as you slowly familiarise yourself with each unit’s traits and abilities. Again, the game can be downloaded for free from the play store.

6.Opus: The Day We Found Earth

OPUS has a wonderfully simple premise, and for the most part, it’s executed brilliantly. You are thrust into the depths of space in pursuit of our home planet. The discovery of planets is snappy and satisfying, and the challenge of scanning the universe is substantial enough to feel consistently rewarding overtime.  The first time you start the game you are urged to wear headphones, and it’s definitely a suggestion worth taking. The melancholic soundtrack is the perfect companion to your hopeless search across the cosmos.  The experience of the game is entertaining enough by itself, but the addition of lovable characters and a brilliant storyline transcend it above similar mobile titles.

7.Minecraft
Minecraft is a popular game all around the world for people of all ages. For those who have never played, Minecraft puts you in a giant world where you mine stuff, build stuff, beat up bad guys, and do pretty much whatever you want. There is a survival mode where you must mine your own resources and food along with a creative mode that gives you unlimited everything. Frequent updates have added tons of new content and possibilities. The game is pretty much on par with its PC and console counterparts. You can also play on multiplayer servers with people on those platforms. The game costs around $6.99 on the play store with in-app purchases, but they’re usually just for customization things like skin packs.
8.Crashlands
Crashland was released in 2016 and it’s already among the best Android games ever made. It features an intergalactic ship that ends up crash landed on an alien planet. Your job is to find out what’s going on, build yourself a base, collect various items (and craft them), and save the world from an evil plot. It has an RPG element for character development, tons of items that you can collect and craft, and the game makes itself easier by doing things like auto-sorting your inventory. It’s a ton of fun and contains dozens of hours of content. The best part? There are no in-app purchases to get in the way.
