With such a vast variety of awesome games for Android phones in the Google Play Store, it might be quite difficult to decide which game you want to play. But don’t worry; we’re going to solve this problem for you with this hand-picked list of the greatest Android games that are available now. Some of them are free and for some, you’ll have to pay a few bucks, but each game will keep you entertained while you’re at home or going somewhere.
Battle Chasers: Nightwar ($10)
People who love the original comic book series that have the same name will be extremely excited by this Japanese RPG. You play as Gully, a girl who aims to find her long-lost father, Aramus. He has vanished and left behind only his magic gauntlets. Together with a diverse crew of sidekicks, which includes an old war golem, you have to learn how to use the gauntlets while you start to cross the magical Grey Line to find your father. Combat in this game is turn-based, and there are many enemies to battle, as well as a bright and colourful world to explore. Battle Chasers: Nightwar is going to cost you $10, but there are no in-app purchases or paid downloadable content (DLC), and this is a game that is going to keep you occupied for a long period of time.
GRIS makes us remember the feelings we got when playing Monument Valley for the very first time. It has that creative vibe to boot, along with beautiful watercolour graphics that feel somewhat like drawing rather than just playing a mobile game. In this game, you play as a young girl who’s undergone a trauma – she’s lost and now she exists solely in an unreal world in which nothing is as it seems, including her dress, that gives her special abilities. In GRIS you travel through a captivating world, taking on different beings and meeting new buddies along the way. You are also going to solve skill-based challenges and easy yet interesting puzzles. Rather than explaining the rules and controls in text, the game does it with the help of icons, so anybody can play this excellent game, no matter what their spoken language is. The whole experience is completely serene, making GRIS the ultimate chill-out game.
Death Road to Canada ($10)
What can be better than a good old zombie apocalypse in a mobile game? The answer is a good old zombie apocalypse in Canada, and that’s exactly what is happening in the game called Death Road to Canada. Perfected with good Canadian humour, which, ok, is probably not for everyone, you play as one of the friends on a road trip to the Death Road from Florida to Canada. While you’re on your way, you’ll get to meet a few quite strange people, travel to different cities, and, sure, be eaten by some slow, shambling zombies. Seriously, prepare to die, and quite a lot. Destroy the zombies with the arsenal of weapons, which includes even some wizard staff, hockey stick, flamethrower, and so on. You’ll get a chance to design mini-versions of the people you’d like to see next to you during a zombie apocalypse with the character creator. You get to decide whether they become eaten or survive. There are 10 modes to unlock, and this randomly-generated and full of events game has lots of replay value and all of this more than excuses its $10 price tag.
Pokémon Café Mix
Is there anything cuter than a Pokémon? Yes, and that’s a café that only serves Pokémon. Pokémon Café Mix is an entertaining little puzzle game in which you have to prepare different foods and drinks for your charming Pokémon customers. Produce excellent treats and then you’ll be able to win lots of new Pokémon friends as well as to grow your business to let in even more customers in. It’s free to download and start but there are some in-app purchases available.
Idle games are probably the best way to have your fingers busy when you watch TV. Also, penguins are excellent in any given setting, so that’s a win-win. And that’s exactly Penguin Isle, a game in which you create a home for all sorts of different penguins. In this game, your main goal is to relax, crank up the sound and listen to the calming music while you are looking at the adorable animations, and beautiful landscape. While this game is not for the people who want action, Penguin Isle is a wonderful choice for relaxation.
