Back in the early days of cell phones all we had was “black and white” Tetris and a few other games to keep our attention during times of absolute boredom. Those games were hard to play because either the cell phone screen was hard to see, or it was hard to navigate using the phones keypad.
However, over the years cell phone games have gotten better and better due to the advancement of technology which can be found on today’s phones. The change has been so great that some hard core gamers are now ditching their top of the line console game systems in favor of their cell phones to play video games.
Today, cell phone gamers have thousands of games to choose from and below are some of the best games available for free for those of you using Android devices:
Best game for Android Tablet
5. You Don’t Know Jack
If you consider yourself a brainiac this is the game for you. You Don’t Know Jack is an awesomely-written trivia game which allows you to play against friends, enemies, or total strangers. You can even unlock themed episodes which allow you to play against your Facebook friends.
The premise of the game is to ask random questions to its players which are then provided several answers to choose from. Just like the standard multiple-choice format used on the show “Who Wants to be a Millionaire.” There are also Dis or Dat questions where you have to categorize terms, as well as the Jack Attack in the final round.
You Don’t Know Jack is a hilarious game which will keep you on your toes at all times. It’s even fun for those of us that are too dumb to score well with trivia titles.
If you love cars and racing, you probably already have heard of Gameloft’s Asphalt series of arcade racing games. Asphalt 8: Airborne is the latest in the series and has the most downloads of any racing games available through the Google Play.
The game features 8 seasons and 180 different races in career mode. That’s not to mention giving you 47 high performance luxury cars to choose from for each race. The races get more and more difficult as you go along and even though there are 8 seasons in total only one is available from the start, the rest must be unlocked by winning prior seasons.
You will not find a car racing game that has better graphics than this one. Much less for free, so give it a try if you haven’t done so already.
3. Dead Trigger 2
Here is the first-person shooter game for all of you zombie killers out there. This amazingly-written video game allows you to travel across 3 regions in different parts of the world, explore various environment and choose one of 30 weapons to go into action against invading zombies in more than 150 gameplays.
If playing alone is not your thing, the game even allows you to take part in the Global Resistance which allows you to play in conjunction with other gamers around the world. In this mode the gameplay is directly influenced by the participation of every single player.
So, if you are looking to prevent the next zombie apocalypse this is the game for you.
2. FIFA 14
How can I possibly build a list of the best free games on the Android platform and leave out sports? I just couldn’t so here is a game which represents the most popular sports in the world. You might think that it would be hard to play soccer, better known as football around the world, on a small touchscreen but this game makes it a breeze.
Created by EA this game features 33 leagues, more than 600 teams, and over 16,000 players. You will have access to players and teams from the English Premier League, to the German Bundesliga, and more. There are also 34 authentic stadiums to choose from.
Best of all this game can be played while listening to commentaries in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish!
1. Angry Birds
There is not much that I can say about the Angry Birds series of games which has not been said already. This is the most popular game series not just on the Android platform, but also on iOS, Symbian and Windows Phone. Combined the game has been download over 2 billion times across all platforms.
From its beginnings the premise of the game was simple: Kill pigs with birds. However, over the years the game has evolved to the point where there is even a Star Wars version of it.
Personally, I am not a big fan of the game but the public has spoken loud and clear as what their favorite Android game is. If you combine all of the platforms which the game is available on, it has been downloaded over 2 billion times, which no other game series comes even close to.
That concludes my list of best five games available on the Android platform for free. Would love to hear about your favorite games in the comments section.
