Top 10 Best Android Games of All Time
1. Subway Surfers
By Kiloo: Free (In-App Purchases)
Subway Surfers is launched by Kiloo and SYBO in 2012. And since then, it has been one of the best Android games. Most of you may have already played Subway Surfers on your Android smartphones. Developers Kiloo and SYBO jointly developed this game. It is an endless running game. The game does not have many characters, levels or controls. It has only three characters. One of them is Jake who is the main character. Other two are a policeman and his dog.
Your job in the game is to help Jake to run in the subway. While running, you need to avoid trains, wooden barricades, light posts and much more. You have swipe controls to move Jake around. These controls are so simple that a child can play Subway Surfers with ease. Just swipe left to go to left lane and swipe right to go to right lane. You can also swipe up to jump and swipe down to roll. You also need to collect coins which come in your way. Some bonus items also come along the way such as jetpacks, super sneakers, magnets etc. You can also activate an hoverboard by double tapping the screen. The game surely deserves its place in my list of top 10 best android games of all time.

2. Temple Run Series
By Imangi Studios: Free (In-App Purchases)
Temple Run and Temple Run 2 are the two gems of Temple Run series. The developer of both these games is Imangi Studios. These games are on my list of best android games of all time. The gameplay is somewhat similar to Subway Surfers. But in terms of graphics Temple Run beats it by a good margin. In this game, you need to run through a floating way. You need to avoid the obstacles which come in your way while running. You also need to turn to left or right whenever a turn arrives. Temple Run series has a few easy swipe and tilt controls for all these.
The first version of the Temple Run series was a simple runner with straight path and turns. But Imangi has revamped the path in the Temple Run 2. In this version, the path has some dips and rises which make the game more realistic. Overall the game is so much funny and addictive. I have played Temple Run series perhaps more than any other game I played.
3. Asphalt 8: Airborne
By Gameloft: Free (In-App Purchases)
Gameloft’s Asphalt 8: Airborne Android game needs not any introduction. Gameloft has been a great mobile game developer even before Android was launched. It has launched Asphalt 8: Airborne back in 2013 for android. Since then this game has been one of the best free android games for racing lovers. This game is one of the most popular android games even in 2017. That makes it one of the best android games of all time.
Asphalt8: Airborne has great graphics and gameplay is quite nice and addictive. You can ride 140+ licensed cars such as Lamborghini, Jaguar, Audi, Mercedes and BMW. These Cars can be ridden across 40+ tracks. The game also has online multiplayer where you can compete with real people around the world. These areas include Nevada, Rio, Great Wall, Dubai and many other amazing areas. Read my full review of Asphalt 8: Airborne to know more about the game.

4. Dead Trigger Series
By MADFINGER Games: Free (In-App Purchases)
Madfinger Games created a fear in zombies with the launch of Dead Trigger. This fear got even deeper with their second instalment Dead Trigger 2. You may consider it a joke but it’s not. Both these games let you kill zombies in such a way where the fear is inevitable. I personally killed more zombies in this game than Brad Pitt killed in World War Z movie. Though some better zombie killer games are in Play Store. But none of them is as easy, light and fast as the Dead Trigger series. That’s why it is one of the best android games of all time.
Dead Trigger series offers you some a unique gameplay with unique weapons. It has many levels which are trying to beat each other in terms of excitement and intensity. Though the app tries to force you into buying its in-app purchases at a certain point of time. Especially the Dead Trigger 2 becomes harder to win without these purchases. But if you leave this the game is quite enjoyable. Both these games deserve a shot by you. Go download and kill zombies.

5. Candy Crush Saga
By King: Free (In-App Purchases)
If you use Facebook then you may have faced some Candy Crush requests. Do you know that those requests were generated by Candy Crush Saga? Candy Crush Saga is a puzzle based game. In this game, you need to match three or more same candies. You need to finish the level under predefined steps to win the level. The Game has hundreds of level to enjoy. Moreover, the game is voted as the world’s ‘Best Social Games’ at international Mobile Gaming Awards.
Candy Crush Saga takes addictiveness to another level. Whether it is good or bad, this game can kill your hours if not days. Even I played it for around an hour while testing it. And after testing, I again played it for another hour. Though the Google Play store is flooded with match-three type puzzle games. But any of them cannot compete with Candy Crush Saga in terms of design and gameplay. Overall the game is as sweet as a candy and as satisfying as crushing things. That’s why its name is Candy Crush Saga.
6. Angry Birds Series
By Rovio Entertainment Ltd.: Free (In-App Purchases)
Angry Birds series is a bunch of games by Rovio including Angry Birds, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Action. These games are based on physics. In Angry Birds series, you throw a bird using a slingshot to kill pigs. Angry Birds games are quite simple yet exciting, addictive and funny. You need to very careful and smart while sending these birds towards the structure. You need to aim at your best to kill all the pigs out there. If you failed to kill all pigs then you will lose that level. But don’t worry, you can always play a level again.
Nothing is more dangerous than angry birds for little pigs. Even the pigs hid in the caves and structures but these angry birds are powerful and smart. They use physics rules and some of their special powers to destroy the structures and pigs too. But the birds need some help from you. They need you to throw them using a slingshot towards those pigs. Are you ready to help those birds in this addictive game? If yes then go and install any game of the Angry Birds series.
7. Clash of Clans
By Supercell: Free (In-App Purchases)
Clash of Clans is a war strategy game. In this game, you need to build your village as well as secure it with fighters and weapons. The game lets you create barracks for your warriors like barbarians and giants. The game is not too hard but at the same time not so simple too. You have to build your warring tribe with planning and strategy. Place cannons at sides and corners so that your tribe can be safe from foreign attacks.
You need to attack goblins in order to destroy their village and drive them away. You need to deploy your units smartly to win the game. When you start playing the game, you have only barbarians to deploy. But as the game advances, barbarians become less than enough to win a battle. Then you need to unlock more warriors types such as archers, giants, minions etc. Though Supercell has launched its sibling Clash Royale. But still, Clash of Clans has its own individuality and excitement.
8. Pokemon Go
By Niantic Inc: Free (In-App Purchases)
Pokemon Go has been one of the most popular games since the day it launched. Initially, the game was not available in India. But sometimes later Niantic, Inc. launched it also in India. The game is a real world game where you have to catch Pokemon. These Pokemons are placed on the map. You have to walk with your phone in hand to search and catch these. The game uses your phone’s sensors such as GPS to work with the map.
Pokemon Go changed the way people play games. Mobile games were to play inside the house but this game has altered the equation. Install this game and enjoy its interesting storyline and gameplay. But be careful and aware with your locality because the game had taken some lives as well.
9. Modern Combat 5
By Gameloft: Free (In-App Purchases)
Modern Combat 5 is another diamond by Gameloft. The company had launched it after the successful run of its four predecessors. Modern Combat 5 is a first person shooter game which lets you enjoy every bit of fun and excitement. Modern Combat 5 has 7 playstyles: Assault, Heavy, Recon, Sniper, Support, Bounty Hunter and Sapper. You can choose any of these and kill the terrorists. The storyline of the game is kind of Call of Duty like. The higher levels and weapons get unlocked as you master and win lower ones. You can also read my review of Modern Combat 5 Android game to get more in depth details.
Modern Combat 5 has realistic graphics and voices which make the game lifelike. You can also customise in-game controls. Even you can play the game using external game controllers. If you are an android games lover then you must install this game on your android device. There is one thing which annoys me a little bit. You can only play the games if you have a good and active internet connection. They should have made at least single player offline. But if you leave this, the game is one of the best free android games of all time.
10. Injustice: Gods Among Us
By Warner Bros: Free (In-App Purchases)
Injustice: Gods Among Us is developed by Warner Bros. and based on DC Comics characters. The game lets you fight with your enemies with special powers. You can fight in 3-on-3 mode and perform marvellous actions. The game is first launched for consoles and then made its appearance in Android. And let me tell you, the Android version too has the console like action and graphics.
One of the most praised things of the Injustice: Gods Among Us is its storyline. What if superman loses its faith in humanity and turns into a ruler from a saviour. The game has more than enough intensity, action and excitement to make you a fan. I have played this game too many times and never got bored with it. The in-game animations and sound effects make it a realistic game. Overall Injustice: Gods Among Us is one of the best android games of all time.
These are the games which deserved their place in my list of top 10 best android games of all time. I have played all of these and enjoyed a lot. What about you?
