So if you have never played any of these games, consider giving them a try on your handheld device. Below I will describe briefly some of the most appealing games that I used to spend much time to.
Popular Android games
Minecraft for Android is an unmatched leader by the number of downloads. When playing the game, construction of buildings and facilities is truly amazing, and it never gets boring. The gamer can do everything in Minecraft, with an absolute freedom and non-linear gameplay. In this unique life simulator, you can feel like a builder and master of the universe. You have lots of building materials and possibilities in the game – use your imagination to the full extent to create your own fantastic world.
Grand Theft Auto series
As of writing, there are three GTA parts ported onto Android: Liberty City (3), Vice City and San Andreas. I like the first two games, with Liberty City being the most vibrant game in the series, and I find San Andreas to be the most diverse in terms of gameplay. The last game is not appealing to me because of bad graphics. Besides, the main character and environment are not impressive either. Not everyone, including me, likes dark streets and blocks in the game.
The GTA 3: Liberty City gameplay is one of my favorites, though it is lacking motorcycles and scooters that are available in Vice City. If you like bright colors, consider playing VC. The GTA 3 world is elaborated very well and it has no strange empty landscapes as in SA.
Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy
This is a truly stunning game that stands out among other mobile-compatible gaming solutions for its eye-popping detective storyline. The game looks like a real thriller; it immerses you from the very start and holds your interest until you complete all the levels to the end. Your aim is to help Lucas Kane, the main protagonist of the game, who is convicted of a murder that he does not remember. Help him understand what has happened and who put him in a frame. The game boasts of professional voice-over, amazing visuals, a wide choice of options in every stage, and enticing music by Angelo Badalamenti. The game has many fans. If you fail to advance on any stage, you can register on any of the game forums using a temporary email address, and ask your questions to other game enthusiasts.
Need for Speed Most Wanted
This is a well-known game for all fans of quality car simulators. Great news is that it has been made compatible with Android devices. The game has everything to take the fancy of every race lover: numerous exclusive sports cars with tuning options, a set of race tracks, impressive graphics and special effects. NFSMW is the best game for fun and entertainment.
Angry Birds is a true arcade blockbuster with dozens of versions available today. I recommend you to install and play the same-name original version. You will have at your disposal a team of angry birds that you can launch to attack pigs using a slingshot. At first glance, the gameplay seems to be very simple but as you keep on playing, you will find it a real fun. One more round, another round… Make mincemeat out of the nasty pigs! In Angry Birds, the player can participate in various tournaments that has a number of leagues: Glass League, Wood, Stone, Bronze, etc. At the end of the game day, there is the leader, which name is visible for all other players. Angry Birds is one of the most exciting games for family entertainment.
