The development of mobile devices does not stand still. Thanks to the new possibilities of iron games on Android devices every year are getting better and better, and many of these innovations can be played for free. Today’s modern phone pulls even a large online game, which just recently was impossible to imagine. Now it’s even more pleasant to relax in a trip or during a break with your phone in your hand. We have collected in our list of the best online games for Android, so you do not have to waste precious time
Minecraft: Pocket Edition
A true legend that simply couldn’t be left out of this list. Take advantage of features like aqua affinity, explore a randomly generated world, mine resources and build any structure you want thanks to the voxel system. Minecraft was once only playable on PCs, but it has since been ported to consoles and then to mobile devices.
Like all other versions of Minecraft, Pocket Edition allows you to play with friends both locally and online by connecting to servers. You can create your own server without too many problems by entering the appropriate settings from the main menu for Minecraft server. One of the best online games on the phone at the moment.
Among Us is rightfully considered one of the best multiplayer games for a group of friends. It has earned such rabid popularity that every gamer has probably at least heard of it. In Among Us, players are members of the crew of a spaceship, but some of them are given the role of traitor and need to kill all the other players while avoiding detection.
Among Us is available on both PC and mobile devices. The only significant difference between the two versions is that you will have to watch a commercial after the round on the mobile gadget.
Fortnite Battle Royale became one of the most popular games in the history and brought hundreds of millions of dollars to its developers from Epic Games studio. Not surprisingly, this game has earned a place on our list. In the match there can be up to 100 players at a time, and the gameplay in the mobile version is as dynamic as on PC or consoles.
But mobile version of Fortnite has its own problems, and the most important one is low productivity, so to play the game comfortably it is recommended to have powerful smartphone. The controls will take some getting used to, because in Fortnite you not only need to move and shoot, but also to deal with your inventory. If the above mentioned problems do not bother you, then Fortnite Mobile will be a great way for you to have fun online.
MMO games have never been a strong point of the gaming library on Android, but that’s starting to change quickly. Genshin Impact is very much like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, only in one big world with hundreds of other players. Like BotW, you can climb almost any surface in the game and explore the colorful world by flying a glider. The game’s calling card is the eye-pleasing anime style, while being more understated than in some other similar titles. In terms of gameplay mechanics, GI is a more in-depth and elaborate RPG than Breath of the Wild, with a wide range of character upgrades, various equipment and crafting. Genshin Impact is a full-fledged MMORPG, not a casino with autobattle and gaming scenery, and we hope that other Android MMOs will follow suit.
All sorts of genres of games are released on Android, including adaptations of board games, but few are capable of recreating the feeling of a real game with another person. Hearthstone is a pleasant exception. Originally this collectible card game from the famous Blizzard studio was only available on PC, but its gameplay is perfectly suited for mobile gadgets. If you are not familiar with the KKI genre, in it the player has to assemble his own deck, picking up as much cards as possible.
Hearthstone is almost an ideal game for those who want to kill time online, but keep in mind that HS is very addictive and it will be very hard to tear yourself away from card battles.
Call of Duty: Mobile
One of the most popular shooters got a second life on mobile devices. It would seem that how such a large and dynamic shooter can be transferred to Android without significant loss of quality? It turns out that it is possible. Call of Duty: Mobile feels like the most ordinary “Kolda”, and it looks almost as good.
Since the release the game has added a lot of new content, including additional game modes, weapons, abilities and so on. At the same time in Call of Duty: Mobile very elaborate controls, which makes the gameplay simple and clear. For beginners there is a special simplified mode in which the shot is made automatically when the aim is aimed at the enemy.
In 2016, Niantic released a game that became a worldwide hit almost overnight. And with good reason, because it was the first time we could feel like a real Pokemon trainer traveling the world, just like Nintendo games. Today, Pokemon Go is still one of the most interesting and unique online games on Android.
Pokemon Go uses augmented reality technology. This means that the game elements are combined with the real world, using it as a base. To catch Pokémon, you have to leave your house and look for them on the street, with city landmarks acting as outlets where you can buy various items.
Old School Runescape
Runescape is rightfully considered as a classic of MMORPG genre. Calling Runescape a good MMO makes no sense, because the studio Jagex has been working on the game for 20 years, constantly finalizing all aspects of the game. There is so much content in this vintage of the game industry that you won’t get through it even in a few years, and that’s not an exaggeration. In terms of gameplay, Old School Runescape resembles most of the other MMOs that have come out in the last two decades (discounting its age), because it is the one that laid the foundation for the entire genre. The Android version of OSRS is almost as good as the PC version, and the game supports cross-platform, so you can play on your phone, then log into your account from your home PC or Mac and continue exactly where you left off.
The battle royale genre owes its insane popularity to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. In 2017, the tie-in broke into all the tops and became one of the most successful shooters of the last decade.
At the beginning of a match, players are thrown onto a large map that begins to shrink rapidly. After a while, the survivors are pushed to one point, where they face a final battle, and the last one left standing turns out to be the winner.
The mobile version of the game has almost all the same features as the original PUBG on PC. Of course, the controls are not as handy as on the PC, but it would be foolish to expect anything different. PUBG Mobile is one of the best shooters for mobile gadgets, so it is more than worthy to be on our top.
