Android Operating System
Research shows that Android is the most popular mobile operating system around these days, even overtaking the popularity of iOS.
Android made its software open source, meaning the software for the original code is made freely available for redistribution and modification. This has allowed developers worldwide to share their expertise with Android’s operating systems, making it among the most innovative software available. It stands to reason therefore that gaming companies have ensured that their very best offerings are available for Android.
There are a myriad of categories and games available for Android on the Google Play Store, and these are continually added to as mobile gaming just keeps growing at a rapid pace. Here are just a few top examples in no particular order:
This game was released in 2016. The game revolves around an intergalactic trucker who is forced to crash land on an alien planet. Players are then required to build themselves a base, collect and sometimes craft the different tools required, and save the world from an evil plot. One of the best aspects of this game however is that there aren’t any in-app purchases.
Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft
Released at the end of 2014, this game remains one of Android’s most popular. It is similar to Pokemon or Magic in that you collect cards at The Gathering, build decks with those cards, and then face-off with your opponents using those decks. This game has constant new expansions which help keep it new and engaging.
This is a game full of puzzles and tasks you need to complete in order to play the game. Add to this it’s fun script and interesting characters, and you can see why this game has made its way onto this list.
The aim of the game is to find your way out of a large maze or digging your way out of a mine, and this is achieved by solving over 1000 puzzles and riddles, and interacting with other characters along the way.
Dead Trigger 2
If blasting zombies to smithereens is your cup of tea, then Dead Trigger 2 is a good option for you. The game has been around for a while, but due to constant updates and upgrades, it has remained popular enough to attract a large number of players, meaning there are always plenty of options of opponents to challenge, in a variety of different modes.
The game has a main story mode, as well as missions on the side, allowing players to earn extra component parts, plus earning cash in order to upgrade weapons.
Minecraft Pocket Edition
Minecraft is well known all around the world, and attracts players of all age groups. This game puts you in a world where you mine resources and beat up villains. There are several different modes – for example a survival mode which requires you to mine your own resources as well as food, and also a creative mode, which gives you unlimited access to everything in the game. This game is constantly being upgraded and updated, much like the games you’d find at Canadian mobile casinos, and this keeps it hugely popular among loyal fans.
Pokemon Go erupted onto the gaming scene last year. Although not the first augmented reality game to have ever been released, it was the first that made it into mainstream gaming and its huge runaway success makes it one of the best Android games ever.
In the game, you walk around in the real world, catching Pokemon, battling for Gyms and restocking supplies at Pokestops. The game gets updates all the time, despite being advanced for its time when it was first released, and continues to captivate audiences the world around.
