With the continuous development in technology, mobile gaming had come a long way from the black and white games before the available games with high-quality graphics today. Due to the popularity boom of Android devices and the promise of large salaries, it is not surprising that many game developers are competing over creating the most popular mobile games.
Due to this, the list of available Android games on the net seems endless from guessing games, “endless running” games, and other kinds of games. Some older generation games even found new life in the mobile gaming industry today.
These games also vary in prices depending on the software used and other things. But almost all of the most downloaded Android games are free. Here are the top five free Android games available nowadays.
1. Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga is a match-three puzzle game wherein you have to match three or more candies of the same type by swapping the positions of two adjacent candies.
This game was originally released for Facebook but due to its immense popularity, it was made available to mobile devices. It contains levels with different obstacles and missions.
2048 is a new game in which you have to slide the tiles in the shown grid to add them up and get one tile with a sum of 2048.
But there’s a catch, you can only combine tiles with the same printed number.
3. Zombie Tsunami
Zombie Tsunami is also an endless running game wherein you have to lead a pack of zombies through the city while attacking civilians to add them into your throng of zombies and avoiding obstacles such as bombs and moving cars.
The game control is fairly simple: touch the screen as long as you want the zombies to jump.
4. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers is also an endless running game. In this game, the character is a young hooligan who is running away from the subway inspector and his dog after being caught while vandalizing one of the trains.
Like any endless running game, its main objective is to get as far as possible before being caught while avoiding obstacles such as moving trains.
To control the movement of the character, you just need to swipe it across the direction you want the character to go into: upwards to jump, downwards to slide below, right to move to the right and left to move to the left.
5. Temple Run 2
Temple Run 2 is a sequel of Temple Run, a game that redefined mobile gaming.
This game is an endless running game in which the character has to run away from a monstrous monkey chasing him while avoiding obstacles such as waterfalls and many more.
Movement is done by tilting the mobile device sideways to make the character go in a certain direction, swiping left or right across the device to make the character turn left or right respectively, swiping upwards for the character to jump and swiping downwards to make the character slide. The main goal of this game is to get as far as possible before the monkey catches you.
There are many other free mobile games available to Android. But these five have undergone immense popularity among the crowd so it made its way to the top five. These five may stay in their positions but it is possible that with the coming years, more will come into the picture to steal the spotlight from these five mobile games.
