Best Android games
Launched in 2018, the game has dominated the game industry since 2020. Despite the game being available for free of cost on Android and iOS, there is something else that made ‘AmongUs’ perfectly paranoid and my favorite activity to pass time in lockdown.
Who doesn’t know great influencers like James Charles, PewDiePie, and Chance Morris? These influencers started their live streaming with the game transforming it into a cult in 2020 growing its fan base.
It’s a multiplayer online game played with random or selected friends as a team of 10 players. You, with your astronaut teammates as ‘imposter’ and ‘crewmate’ work on fixing your spaceship while secret saboteurs try killing you all. Here Crewmates are destined to find an imposter but if you are an imposter (an alien), the game becomes convivial as you get to betray your friends and kill them. Sometimes hiding behind the mask is cruel but sometimes it is riveting. There’s only one rule, ‘Trust no one.

Crossy Road (for Android)
Do you think you have good concentration? Are you good with timings? Do games make you practice more? If you think I am talking about you, then this game is for you. All you have to do is get as far as you can without hitting your car. Yes, it’s a car game that has hit the app store as one of the most addictive games.
Car games sound easy but trust me, it isn’t. Your car can drown. A hawk can catch you. If nothing then hitting other cars is the most common playout.
The twist is every win offers you gifts in form of new characters or coins. Just don’t get fixated on the coins. It offers you to buy new characters but nothing else. Focus more on-road ahead of you than coins. The Crossy Road is available for free at the play store. Just don’t spend real money on the game especially when you are short on it or it is just a challenge for you.

It’s a monster-battling and wizard-blasting fun that has changed traditional gaming.

Final Fantasy VII

The mobile version of the game may lack some polygons for the players in comparison to console and PC counterparts but the elements lack no excitement from the players. Let me give you a trick.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Talking about games and not including any car game, that won’t be possible. One of the most famous car games dominating the gaming world is NFS. It’s a free-roaming racing game that provides linear tracks. It has an odd shortcut but trusts me the racing bit is amazing.
It comes to reputation when you speed up your car in a gray city with seedy streets trying to win. Every win gives you some coffers that enable you to update your vehicles to enter special racing events.
The high-octane soundtrack available for the game on android phones makes your gaming experience lively. It feels like you are in the game with all the controls. The slick combination of receptive angle and effortless drifting gives the ‘Vin Diesel’ vibe from fast and furious.

It’s a 5V5 game where a player on each side has to choose a champion in the game. You can win by either making the other team surrender or more interesting by destroying their base. It still needs traditional gaming strategies but this mobile-friendly battlefield version refurbished the touch controls. From casting the spells to moving in the field, this android version has made the game more frenetic and fun.

Butterscotch Shenanigans developed Crashlands that dominated the gaming industry for around three years. Now the developer is back with a new platform named Levelhead. The expectations are high. It’s a platformer game with traditional graphics and strategies where the player controls the character to climb or move. Interestingly, people are loving this one for its excellent humor yet satisfying controls.
Despite being from the same genre, this platformer game sets itself apart from others. All credit goes to its amazingly custom-level building. Players get the satisfaction of building levels and uploading to the game. That means other players are unaware of the new challenge every time a player uploads a new level.
Coming to the features, one is speedrunning that involves a custom-made leaderboard for each level. The developers have used the cloud to make it cross-platform. What else do you need for a best-in-class android game?

Another adventurous game is GRIS which showcases a storyline of a lost girl. Rated with 4.5 stars on the play store, gamers find it attractive to play yet with some important life lessons to learn from. It includes puzzle-platformer elements. Based on the reviews, gamers find it to be one special game that everyone needs.
The game storyline follows a young girl named Gris lost in her own world dealing with her life experiences like every other normal person next door. There’s no death or win climax in the game but it allows the players to solve some puzzles and explore the world.
While it sounds interesting yet concentrates on solving the puzzles, it does not include any text to complete the story. Visual elements of the game with the designed graphics are enough to continue the story. Such games are considered artsy to prove their outstanding adventure.
