If you would ask anyone right now about what are the things they could not live without, most of the answers you’ll get will include their trusty cellular phones.  I mean, they are one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century right? The most popular today are Android phones. For those who have been living under the rock, Android is an operating system designed for mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. It has a wide array of developers that create several applications or “apps” that are designed to make life easier for humans and or make it more entertaining; thus, the games. So if you are looking for the best android games, we give you the top 10! Check them out!

Subway Surfers

This is one of the most downloaded apps on the app store. Help Jake escape from the police and his dog! This game is definitely not like Temple Run because you don’t have to tilt your phone for Jake to stay on one lane. What’s more interesting is that Subway Surfers takes you on a trip around the world! The developers have taken you to Rio, Rome, and Tokyo! Expect more amazing places and bumpy roads along the way! But keep in mind that you have to complete the challenges as well to collect more coins and level up!

Temple Run

We bet that there is not one person in the cyber world who does not know this game. In just one year, Temple Run has had 100 million plus downloads. It is an endless running game that goes through tunnels, jungles and brick roads, with demonic monkeys chasing the player. This was first introduced only in the iPhone operating system (IOS), but due to public demand, the developers made it available for Android users as well. This game became a very huge hit that a sequel was made with more exciting features. Temple Run 2 is available on both IOS and Android.

Candy Crush Saga

The sweetest game on Android is here! Literally – with the candies and all. This is a game that is available for smart phones and on Facebook as well. It has surpassed Farmville as the most-played game on the number one social networking site of the world. Candy Crush has had over ten million downloads already. This game is somewhat similar to Bejeweled wherein you have to match similar candies together in order to move on to the next level. However, it is not that simple! There are challenges that the player has to surpass and the “life” is not always available for you, meaning you have to take a rest while waiting for your number of lives to regenerate back to its maximum level.

4 Pics 1 Word

Fun Fact: 4 Pics 1 Word was named “App of the Day” on February 25th of this year by Pocket-lint. It has also received several positive reviews for its simplicity and social aspect, making it fit to be in our list of the best android games. There are 4 pictures in the screen and you need to give that one word that sums up the four – that simple!

Fruit Ninja

Kinect and Xbox versions of this game were also released just two years after its launch.  Reviewers believe that the game has an addictive value.

Extra points and rewards are also awarded by cutting multiple fruits in just one swipe and many more. The player, however, will lose the game if he or she misses 3 fruits in a row. Bombs are also added to the game for a more challenging play.

Icon Pop Quiz

This game will channel out the nerd in you! Icon Pop Quiz challenges players to name the icons of famous people, hit movie, TV show or more categories to choose from. If your answer is correct and the quicker you give your answer, the higher the score you’ll get. Not only that, you get to learn more as you uncover the answers.  With your scores, you can compete against your friends worldwide and get a chance to beat their score as well!

You also get to buy a lot of cool things for your avatar that will help you fly even faster and look good in the air at the same time!

Angry Birds

The most famous birds in the world are brought closer to everyone as it is already available in Android. A whole lot of other versions were made of this game like Star Wars, Seasons and Rio. These characters became wildly popular that a movie was done based on them, which was named “Rio”. Angry birds allow the player to throw the birds in the air in order to smash the blocks completely down into the ground.

Tap Tap Revenge

This game was created for the love of music. Ever wanted to play the guitar, drums or any other musical instrument but never really learned how to? Here’s your chance. Tap Tap Revenge is a music game that aims the player to be able to tap each of the colored balls when they reach the line at the bottom of the screen. When it hits just in time, the player earns points.

These are just few of the thousands of games being developed every single day. This has become quite a huge market and a lot of people are getting hooked. Let us not forget though that there can be negative impacts if we become too obsessed with these gadgets. Make sure to take a breather sometimes and enjoy the world outside your homes.
