There are thousands of Internet compilations of the best games for Android, so what makes ours different?
For starters, we have included not only the latest Android game titles but also our favorite games of all time. Those games are the ones we came back to before or after, even if it's just to remember old times. They never go out of style.
The collection, in addition to free best games for Android, picks up the odd paid game. Sometimes, if you want to get something of a 'tad' more valuable you have to put your hand in your pocket.
However, you should know that free games often contain additional payment items. So if besides you, you are going to let someone play (for example, a girl or boy), it is worth checking that they will not be able to buy anything extra without your permission. 
To do this, you can follow the following steps:
  1. Open the Google Play app and tap on the three horizontal lines in the upper left of the screen.
  2. Choose the 'Settings' option, and move your finger down until you reach the 'Request authentication for purchases' option.
  3. Make sure this option is set 'For all purchases through Google Play on this device'.
In the 'Settings' menu, you will also find an option to automatically update applications only if you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. This way you will not lose any data (some games are huge, so we do not recommend that you update or download them without wifi).

27 Best Games for Android to Download.

1. Fortnite (free)

  • Free

After months of exclusivity for mobile phones with iOS, Fortnite is now also available for download on Android, although everything that glitters is not gold. As announced during the launch of the Galaxy Note 9, Fortnite for Android will be limited (at least initially) to those who have a Samsung Galaxy S7 or higher.
If you have a   Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, you can access the same Battle Royale for 100 players that are available for both computers and game consoles with a similar level of visual quality.
If you've been living in a cave for the past year and you don't know Fortnite, the concept is simple: go ashore, look for weapons and materials and, using a combination of crafts and shooting, fight to be the last player standing.
Fortnite is possibly the most popular Battle Royale game, its quality and continuous updates make us understand why.

2. Ark: Survival Evolved (free)

Ark: Survival Evolved

In June 2015, Ark: Survival Evolved (one of the best games for android) entered Early Access on Steam to reach PC and Mac. Three years later and Ark has conquered not only PC but also Mac, PS4, Xbox One, and even iOS smartphones and Android
It is one of the most polished “open-world” games we have seen on Android, with a huge world that you can explore by land, sea, and air, and more than 80 dinosaurs for you to discover, fight.
You can create and build your own shelter, or work with friends online as a tribe to build bigger and better structures. You can unlock a wide range of weapons, from basic spears to high-tech weapons, and you can even ride some of the dinosaurs you encounter. What more could you want?
The touch controls are much more intuitive than we expected, with a short learning curve expected for both new and experienced players.
The best news is that dressage times are much shorter than on PCs and consoles, which allows you to create your dinosaur collection without having to feed each of them for literally hours and hours.
Being a free application compared to a full-price PC game, there are plenty of IAPs that can help players get ahead along with an official Primal Pass subscription.
Payments provide double XP to level up faster, remove all ads, provide access to both preferred servers and preferred slots on free servers and other benefits.
While having the pass will provide faster access to updates, new equipment and more, the good news is that everything is also accessible without spending a single euro.
3. PUBG Mobile (free)
PUBG Mobile

Does PUBG Mobile really need an introduction? The successful battle royale game that went on sale in 2017 is now available in mobile format for both iOS and Android players.
Unlike the PC and console variant that will cost you € 26.99, the mobile variant is free to play with a lot of IAPs, although these are limited exclusively to the dress and appearance of your character.
But while some assume that the experience is poor on a mobile device, the F2P mobile game actually has mechanisms that we would love to see transferred to the main game.
Most notably, during the looting, accessories and useful items will be collected and equipped automatically - ideal for those who are unsure of the myriad of weapon accessories available at PUBG.
Apart from the great mechanics, the shooter is not as difficult to use as some imagine. Of course, it has a learning curve, but once you get used to the position of the on-screen controls and movement mechanics, everything will flow normally.
4. Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition (free)
Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition

We are big fans of Final Fantasy XV for console and PC, which is why we were very surprised by the release of Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition.
Not because of the style of the illustrations - which we think works incredibly well and looks great on small screens - but because of how well the mobile game reflected the events of the console game.
There are differences: the open world is not as big as in the whole game, and some tasks are simpler than those of the console, but it works very well on smartphones.
The game can be downloaded for free and provides free access to the first chapter, but you will have to pay for each of the nine chapters it contains.
It is worth noting that it is quite demanding in terms of graphics and users may notice an accelerated decrease in battery compared to other mobile games.
5. Alto's Adventure (free)
Alto's Adventure

If you are looking for an attractive, simple but entertaining side-scrolling, look no further: Alto's Adventure is what you need.
Although it has been available for a few years now, there are few Android games with side-scrolling that can compete in terms of both visual quality and entertainment.
For those who do not know what the game is about: you will have to take control of Alto while embarking on an endless snowboarding adventure, traveling through incredibly detailed and vibrant environments and making jumps that defy death through bottomless chasms.
The game uses a one-button cheat system for a simplistic game, but it's not as simple as it seems. Synchronization is everything, and as you build your combo, you will become faster and faster, making it harder to avoid the obstacles that come your way.
And with more than 180 goals to reach, Alto's Adventure should keep you busy until Alto's Odyssey finally makes its Android debut.
6. Framed 2 (€ 4.99)
Framed 2

Framed 2 is the sequel to the resounding success of 2014, Framed. The game reintroduces the comic-style puzzle mechanics that made the first game so popular. The players have the task of rearranging the comic book panels to help the character go through each section and leave behind his pursuers with weapons.
It is largely a trial and error game since it is not always clear how each panel will affect the overall scene, but it is very satisfying when finally working with the correct sequence in a particularly challenging sequence.
The charming art style also works well in Framed 2, and the intriguing story helps stimulate you.
If you like unique puzzle games, both Framed and Framed 2 are worth it.
7. Pokémon Go (free)

You can catch Pokémon by throwing them PokéBalls, which in turn you can get on the PokéStops that are in your area.
The most beneficial of Pokémon Go: encourages girls and boys who play him to get up from the sofa and leave the house, since the only way to “get everyone”, to grow eggs to get rewards or to catch the famous and Pikachu is very requested to leave home.
If you are such a fan of the game that you have managed to catch all the Pokémon, which does not panic, the game is not yet over for you, since Pokémon Go recently released a new group of Pokémon to reality.
Did you think you had done it with everyone? Well, no. Stop touching the PokéBalls and play!
