Here we go, friends. Mobile games always seem to take big steps year after year. Last year, we saw a big boost in niche genres like text games and independent puzzle games. This year, we saw a lot of excellent games in shooting games, tower defense, rhythm, indie puzzles and simulation. In fact, this could be the best year of mobile games we’ve seen. There was just a lot of new content from PUBG to Fortnite, Kingdom Rush Vengeance to Bloons TD 6, and even some great new RPGs. This is a long list, so let’s get to it. Here are the best Android games of 2018! We do not have them classified in any specific way. However, the last game on the list is our choice for the best of the year.
Odyssey of Alto
Alto’s Odyssey is an infinite runner of lateral displacement in 2D and the biggest launching of Noodlecake Studios in 2018. The game has magnificent simple graphics, an easy mechanics and a smooth game. The players ski slopes and make massive jumps to get points. They also collect coins for unlockable content in the game store. You also get a photo mode because the visual elements of this game create perfect wallpapers, as well as a zen mode where you play to relax. It certainly is not treading on any new terrain. However, it is an infinite runner as solid as you will find these days and it is also suitable for children. Everyone wins!
Asphalt 9: Legends
Asphalt 9: Legends is possibly the most popular new racing game in 2018. It has above-average images, a solid racing mechanic and a metric ton of events, missions and challenges to complete. The game also includes an online multiplayer mode, online social elements such as clubs, a campaign mode and more than 50 unlockable cars. This is a game that you can play for a long time before you get everything. It’s a freemium game and you try a lot with that. However, Gameloft’s long racing series is popular for a reason. Those who are more interested in hardcore racing simulators may need something extra, but this is great for fans of casual racing games.
Cytus II is the latest rhythm game from Rayark International, Rayark makes exceptional mobile rhythm games and this is no exception. The game uses the mechanics of playing, sliding and playing and maintaining, and players use the entire screen with this game. It’s colorful, intense and surprisingly smooth for the amount of screen elements there are. Players get a story mode with 30 songs in the base game for $ 1.99 with more songs available as in-app purchases. There are more than 300 tables of total steps between the songs and the different difficulties. We also recommend the first game in the series if you need something easier to start.
HQ Trivia has the distinction of being the first Android game released in 2018. We know this because it ran its first live game seconds after midnight on New Year’s Eve. HQ Trivia is one of the most exclusive quiz games for mobile devices. It has live tests conducted like a real game show. That includes a real, real host. The games are played every day at 9 PM EST with additional games on weekdays at 3PM EST. Players even earn real money if they last long enough. The game is occasionally slow, but doing so can include a few hundred thousand people in a single game show. Those who want something a little more typical can also try Trivia Crack 2, another new trivia game in 2018.
Monsters hunter stories
Monster Hunter Stories is an excellent new RPG. It has the same central experience of all Monster Hunter games. Players travel the world, collect monsters, train them and fight with them. You get action, adventure and RPG elements. Use a battle structure step by step and you also get colorful graphics. Perhaps our favorite part is the demo version of the game. The demo version is actually its own independent game that acts as a prologue to the real game. We think it’s a great idea. The data ports of the demo version for the main game after purchase. It’s really expensive at $ 19.99, so we will not blame you if you want to skip this one.
Part Time UFO is a puzzle game from HAL Industries, developers of the first Super Smash Bros and most of the Kirby series. The developer’s first mobile game is a great success. It has fights against bosses, puzzles and a small and fun adventure with a lot that players can do. The puzzles are charming, although somewhat easy and the story is charming and harmless. You also get a fun soundtrack, some features to share on social networks and more. The game has a rating of 4.9 on Google Play. It may not be the most popular game in history, but almost no one who plays it dislikes. That is a rarity for mobile games.
Pocket City is a city construction simulator like SimCity. You start with a plot of land. The players build a functional city. You must achieve a balance between business and residence, expand intelligently and deal with things like natural disasters. Players unlock more buildings and terrains as they progress and must manage things like the happiness of the population and the traffic. The game also includes support for vertical and horizontal modes, as well as offline support. The free version contains ads. For $ 3.99, you have no ads and more features. It may be the best freemium city construction simulator on Google Play right now.
Queen: game of thrones
Reigns: Game of Thrones is an interesting card game. Players get cards with various scenarios in them. You choose one of the two options by sliding the card to the left or to the right. Some options are simple like selling wood and others involve more serious matters. The result is its continuous reign or the final fall. This version of the game also includes Game of Thrones characters, story elements and themes. It’s not a deep game with a deep story and that can disappoint some Game of Thrones fans. However, it is one of the best killer games in time on mobile devices, and is purchased for only $ 3.99 without freemium elements. We appreciate that.
Returner 77 is an independent puzzle game with a science fiction story line. The story involves an alien invasion with humanity on the verge of extinction. You make your way through an alien ship while solving riddles and advancing. The game features beautiful graphics, fun puzzles and an interesting story. It is one of the few independent puzzle games of recent years with a narrative that drives the game forward. Round out the experience with live action video clips, voice-overs and a reasonable price. It is easily one of the most underestimated games in 2018.
The room: old sins
The Room: Old Sins is the latest game in one of the most critically acclaimed puzzle franchises. This is an easy option for the best mobile games of 2018. It comes with outstanding graphics, a narrative to follow and a simple mechanics. Players make their way through a dollhouse filled with puzzles to solve. The game also supports saving in the cloud and achievements of Google Play Games. It keeps many of the elements of the previous games, so many people already know what they find with this. Is it the best of the year? No, but it’s definitely up there and that’s why it’s here.
Legends of the shadow gun
Shadowgun Legends is one of the three best shooters of 2018 without a doubt. It’s a pretty standard mobile shooter. Players get a campaign to play with elements of science fiction and action along with PvP online, an RPG style progression system and a lot of booty to collect. Of course, you get good graphics and a game experience as good as that of a shooter on the mobile. In general, there is not much in this game that is not a positive experience, although we would appreciate some adjustments in the inventory space. We are very happy to see a new game of Shadowgun and Madfinger Games delivered. This is a great shooter.
