With that in mind, The Google Play Store has some amazing apps for gaming, whether you’re into strategy games, card games, or just want to relax after work with a game of solitaire.
If you love playing games on your mobile device, check out the top five games on Google Play this week! Whether you’re looking for an immersive single-player RPG, some casual fun with friends, or action-packed head-to-head battles, you’ll find the perfect game here. If you’re looking to expand your collection of gaming apps, here are five of the best currently available on the Google Play Store.
1) Candy Crush Saga
Candy Crush Saga is a game that has taken many people’s attention in recent months, with its simple interface and addictive game-play. It was released for Apple iOS devices on November 11, 2012, and for Android devices on April 12, 2013. The game has since been ported to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 platforms as well as BlackBerry 10 smartphones. Mobile versions have also been launched on Nokia Asha Platforms and J2ME-enabled mobile phones too. Also, it has achieved some social media status by having over 6370000 likes on Facebook at the last count of 2nd July 2014. This made it an official trending topic overnight within these social circles, which blew up its community. That said it would be illogical not to say how successful or addictive it really is based on every metric relating to user retention & acquisition levels if they were available or remotely close to accurate at all.
2) Words With Friends
Available for free for Android devices, Words With Friends is a game you can play with your friends over a social network or Wi-Fi connection. It’s been around since 2009 and is still going strong. The game can be played in single-player mode as well, but it’s much more fun when played against actual opponents (aka friends). This app gets an A rating from us because it’s available to download for free. If you like word games and have some Facebook friends who also love them, it’s a great game for past times. Best of all, there are no in-app purchases required to enjoy playing Words With Friends. You can also play multiplayer games of Scrabble with random people online if you want—for free!
3) Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers is a relatively new game, but it has been incredibly popular. It’s a simple concept: you play as a graffiti artist running through various cities, collecting coins, and avoiding obstacles. While it can get repetitive and old if you overplay it (or let your kids play with it), there are plenty of levels and content to keep casual players occupied for hours. This one’s worth checking out! If nothing else, it makes for good in-flight entertainment; my kids have become big fans. Check it out!
4) Clash Royale
There’s no question that Clash Royale is one of 2016’s breakout mobile games. It boasts a huge user base (nearly 15 million downloads), earned $186 million in revenue in its first year, and has been downloaded by more than 60% of smartphone users in the U.S. If you haven’t checked it out yet, now is a great time to dive into Supercell’s hit title. In fact, we love Clash Royale so much that we ranked it as #1 among The Best Mobile Games of 2016—as well as our top overall game for Android and iOS! Check out our review below! [Review] Clash Royale ranks right up there with Glu Mobile’s other smash-hit titles like Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Contract Killer: Zombies, and Cooking Dash 2016.
5) Candy Crush Soda Saga
This is probably one of my favorite gaming apps ever, not because I’m that great at it (I’m really not), but because there are so many elements to it. There are levels within levels, and new features keep getting added as you play through more. It’s like watching a movie that never ends—and if you happen to be a fan of candy-themed or soda-themed games, then it will appeal even more to your whimsical sense of humor. The game has literally been downloaded millions of times on multiple platforms, so chances are good that if you know someone who likes these types of games, they already have Candy Crush Soda Saga!
There are literally thousands of gaming apps out there, so it can be a bit difficult to choose which ones are worth downloading. Below, we've rounded up five of our top picks. The selection is hardly exhaustive—we may not have included your favorites in our list—but they're an excellent jumping-off point if you want to explore what's out there. We've also ranked them according to their download popularity,
