Who doesn’t like to play games? Android users can be satisfied with the fact that there are lots of different games—both paid and free—available for them. Some of these Android games have gone on to become mega-hits, while others became crazes—or even brands.
The following is a compiled list of the top 10 Android games. This list is in no particular order and is mostly composed of my personal preferences and experiences. So, without further ado, here is a list of some of the best Android games for you:
- Granny Smith
- Angry Birds
- Can Knockdown 2
- Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots Version
- Temple Run: Brave
- Cut the Rope
- Stickman Base Jumper
- Rayman Jungle Run
- The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth
1. Granny Smith
Despite the fact that this list is no particular order, I had to put Granny Smith as number 1. It is one of the best Android games that I have played, and it should definitely be at the top of this list.
If you ever thought that our grannies couldn’t do any spectacular stunts, then this is an eye-opener for you. Lots of crazy stunts, funny crashes, exceptional physics, and seriously challenging rounds make Granny Smith one of the best games for Android.
2. Angry Birds
There is not going to be any list of the best Android games that does not include Angry Birds. It is arguably the most popular Android game, and now lots of different versions of the game have been announced. However, the concept and the core gameplay remain the same for all of them.
Angry Birds has redefined the concept of physics and gravity in Android games. Whether you decide to play the original Angry Birds or its subsequent successors, namely: Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Space, or Angry Birds: Star Wars, you owe it to yourself to play at least one of them.
Note: I found Angry Birds Space to be different than most of the other versions of the game. Being in space, you will have to face a different gravity law, which the entire concept of the game rests upon. So, it offers a slightly different experience.
3. Can Knockdown 2
Can Knockdown 2 is another wonderful game for android users. Although not as popular as the above-mentioned Angry Birds, it brings an equally exciting and fun experience to the gamer. Loaded with three different game modes, Can Knockdown 2 offers plenty of different ways to enjoy the game. The physics of this game are simply exceptional. Moreover, you will also be stunned by its awesome graphics. See the accompanying video for gameplay.
4. Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots Version
Fruit Ninja is a popular game for Android users. However, we are talking about the Puss in Boots version. It is based on the movie title of the same name; however, the game’s concept remains the same as its predecessors. The squishy and fun experience the game has to offer is incomparable. Moreover, the background voice of Puss in Boots adds another flavor, too. In addition to this, Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots also offers two different game modes to enjoy: Desperado and Bandito.
The Bandito mode is more like a linear, story-type gameplay, while the Desperado mode is the same as the survival mode and posting the highest possible score. You will find many fruit cutting games, but Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots is one of the best Android games in my opinion.
5. Temple Run: Brave
Temple Run is another very popular Android game. With its newer version, Temple Run has introduced the main character from the latest Disney Pixar’s animated film, Brave. Although the core gameplay remains the same, there have been some minor additions. Moreover, because of the grassy environment—instead of the temple setting—the game looks a bit richer and fuller in graphics. Check it out!
6. Cut the Rope
When we talk about games that turned out to be huge hits, we can’t miss Cut the Rope. It is one of the best Android games, and I had to include it in my list of top 10 Android games. With tons of challenging levels, Cut the Rope offers plenty of fun to Android users. Moreover, apart from the extremely well-crafted gameplay and lively soundtrack, you instantly get impressed by the cute characters and the loveable feel of the game. Chances are that you might have already played this game, but if not, then you definitely need to check this one out. Its later stages will seriously challenge your logic, reflexes, and puzzle-solving skills.
7. Stickman Base Jumper
There are numerous "stickman" games, and most of them are usually pretty entertaining. Stickman Base Jumper is included in this category. Although many people will not find it as interesting and impressive as some of the above-mentioned games for Android, Stickman Base Jumper is a decent inclusion in the list nevertheless. The action-packed soundtrack is instantly noticeable. Moreover, it is a good, challenging sort of a game for many Android users, and you can definitely give it a try to see if it suits you.
8. Rayman Jungle Run
Rayman Jungle Run may not be as popular as some of the top Android games, but it has its own loyal following—and for all the right reasons, too. Rayman Jungle Run instantly hooks you up with brilliant graphics and innovative gameplay. Unlike some of other Android games, the gameplay consists of numerous actions from your side. In addition to this, brilliant music acts like the red cherry on the top. Especially in terms of graphics and soundtrack, Rayman Jungle Run is one of the best Android games.
I am not really a huge fan of Sprinkle, but it has a fairly noticeable following. Sprinkle is made by the company Mediocre, which also created the highly-acclaimed Granny Smith. Probably because of this fact, Sprinkle also offers a refined, graphically amazing, and very clean game based on gravity-laws. Lots of different levels are there for you to play, all of which become increasingly challenging as you move forward.
10. The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth
The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth is a completely different game than the ones mentioned above. It is a multiplayer strategy game in which you join thousands of other players in real-time. With the ability to do live chats and plan strategies, the game has a lot to offer to all the strategy-fanatics. The Hobbit is produced by the famous company, Kabam.
If you are a die-hard LOTR fan or just a gamer who likes to play strategy games, then make sure to give this one a try. In short, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth—when it comes to strategy games—is one of the best Android games.
There Are Many Wonderful Games for Android
And this concludes our list of the top 10 Android games. As mentioned earlier, this list of the best Android games is more of a personal one, but since most of these games are pretty popular, chances are that you will find them thoroughly entertaining. Have fun!
