Asphalt 8 Airborne

  • Price: Free to Play
  • Genre: Racing
  • Initial Release Date: August 22, 2013
  • Publisher: Gameloft
  • Developer: Gameloft

Asphalt 8 Airborne

Flaunting a roster of more than 260 vehicles (cars and bikes), and a selection of 61 playable tracks spread across 20 locations on the globe, Asphalt 8 has garnered a lot of reputation in the racing game community. Unlike Real Racing and the Need for Speed saga, Asphalt has always aimed at keeping its gameplay simple and engaging.

Breathtaking “close to reality” graphics and an amazing line-up of top-notch car brands, Asphalt has re-defined the concept of car racing. They made the controls much easier to follow and perform some gravity-defying barrel rolls, flat spins, and car drifts to keep the gamers on their heels at all times. Although the game has events and a multiplayer mode that would require a steady internet connection, the offline mode itself is magnanimous – with 8 stages to unlock, spread across 5 car and bike classes (D, C, B, A, S), with mastery stage for every vehicle and an exclusive McLaren race cars stage.

You won’t feel the need of going online when all of this is available offline. You can download the game for free but it does have some in-game purchases for tokens and car packs, which might seem unnecessary for players who wish to invest their time in owning every car purely with their game earnings.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition

  • Price: Free to Play
  • Genre: Sandbox
  • Initial Release Date: August 16, 2011
  • Publisher: Mojang, Xbox Game Studios
  • Developer: Mojang, Xbox Game Studios

Minecraft: Pocket Edition

How could we exclude this game from the list, can you guess any other game with such a huge fan-base? The game garners more than 91 million active players from around the globe, which is much greater than Fortnite (78.3 million) and Apex Legends (70 million) on the PC platform.

And the Minecraft: Pocket Edition is no exception, this open-ended adventure allows you to play on 2 modes – creative and survival. You are entitled to freely move around in creative mode, with an infinite supply of materials (humorously similar to playing GTA San Andreas with cheats and aimlessly hoboing around).

The survival mode is comparatively much more intense – you build during the day and fend off enemies at night. The fun part about Minecraft is that it doesn’t force its gamers into playing according to a specific storyline, you are literally on your own out in the open, and creativity is all you have to survive. The Minecraft: Pocket Edition will cost you around $7 on the play store along with a few in-app purchases as well.

  • Developer: Team Alto

Alto's Odessey

Alto’s Odyssey is another big number after Minecraft. This weirdly alluring game on paper, is just a common never-ending runner like the Temple run and yet, it has been rewarded for being one of the best offline android games.

The secret probably lies in the meekly setting of the game, or the bewitching artwork, as you run through the mountains and the ravines, performing back-flips and slides on your sandboard, into crimson sunsets and purple twilight’s, as poetic as it seems, you realize how the wonderfully calm music (A Moment of Tranquility by Torin Borrowdale) is adding on to the effect.

To top it all off, Alto runs at his own pace and the only job you have in the game is to perform jumps and mid-air stunts. Alto’s odyssey was nominated for the Fan Favourite Mobile Game at the Gamers’ Choice Awards.

Hungry Shark Evolution

  • Price: Free
  • Genre: Arcade
  • Initial Release Date: October 24, 2012
  • Publisher: Future Games of London Ltd., Ubisoft, Ubisoft Milan
  • Developer: Future Games of London Ltd.

Hungry Shark Evolution

No matter if you are a vegetarian or a meat-eater who dislikes seafood, you are most definitely going to love gorging on sea bass and anglerfish or the barracudas and schools of tropical fishes. You name it and you can eat it. That’s because you are a shark and food is the only thing on your mind.

This 3-D arcade has amassed wide popularity among mobile gamers, maybe because of the extensive variety of seafood and human cuisine it offers (yes, you can jump ashore and eat humans too). Or maybe it’s because of the assemblage of all kinds of sharks (from the pre-historic Megalodon to the new-gen Robo-Sharks) that you get to unlock as you progress in the game. You can either play the game based on motion sensing or with your regular touch and drag, both promise to offer an immersive underwater experience. The only things that can kill you in the game are underwater mines and torpedos, fishing boats, jellyfishes, bigger sharks than you, and most importantly “hunger”. Feel free to chow down on anything you see, no fishes were harmed in the making of this game.

  • Price: Free
  • Genre: Arcade, Runner
  • Initial Release Date: May 24, 2012
  • Publisher: Kiloo, SYBO Games
  • Developer: Kiloo, SYBO Games

Subway Surfer

Subway Surfers was one of the earliest mobile games to popularize the endless-runner genre in the gaming community. Your sole aim is to save Jake from the inspector and his dog, and you do so by running along the train tracks of the subway. Performing front rolls or jumping over hurdles while dodging any trains on the tracks, climbing train carriages, running on moving trains are all the possible ways you can constantly outrun them. As an add-on, you need to collect coins along the way and there are various items you can pick up along the way that will assist you in the same – high jumping boots, jetpacks, magnets, and hoverboards. You can buy these items in the in-game store as well, along with many outfits for Jake.

This game might seem childish, with moderately good graphics, but it is truly difficult to give up easily on Jake after getting caught. The game is free in the play store with in-app purchases.

Really Bad Chess

  • Price: Free
  • Genre: Mind sport, Abstract strategy game
  • Initial Release Date: October 13, 2016
  • Publisher: Noodlecake Studios
  • Developer: Zach Gage

Really Bad Chess

If you are wondering why this game has made it in the list even though the name itself suggests how bad the game is, you will be surprised to know that this game has been awarded a 5/5 rating. How so?

Because unlike any other chess, this chess does not begin with the conventional set of pieces (16 total pieces: 1 king, 1queen, 2 knights, 2 bishops, 2 rooks, and 8 pawns), but randomly generates the type of pieces you will have in the game. It can be 5 kings, 3 queens, 5 pawns, and 3 rooks for all you know and you have to beat the AI with whatever pieces they have. The very boundaries of a “fair-game” are broken here and yet you won’t be able to stop yourself from pondering over all the moves you will make to win it. This game bends the very rules and conventions of normal chess and this is what makes it worth playing. This game is free to download on the play store.

Shadow fight 2

A beefed-up version of its predecessor, Shadow fight 2 is an intense RPG with nail-biting battle sequences. It is pretty hard to imagine a 2D game having this magnitude of details into its actions, where the characters are nothing but shadows and the only color in the game is the wonderfully curated backgrounds that are a magnificent piece of art in themselves.

The game is equipped with dozens of martial arts, fighters to engage in battle with, lethal weapons and astonishingly lifelike fighting techniques. Although the characters are black in their fights, the roster of characters and weapons does depict their true 3D colored figures.

The controls are simple and well spread out over the screen to ensure easy handling of the game, fighting sequences can get intense, and hence every step of yours will count. Shadow Fight 2 has undeniably lived up to the expectations of the fans and cannot be judged truly without having played the game. The game is free on the play store and contains in-app purchases.
