I’ll begin with my personal favourite!
Dumb Ways To Die
Having started out as a brilliant campaign for train safety, Dumb Ways To Die may have an educational component – but it is cleverly hidden in a set of macabre plots and grotesque characters. The name speaks for itself and in the game you will have to avoid getting killed in a number of “dumb” ways, like getting your private parts bitten off by piranhas or eating an expired pie.
Fun and hilariously fearsome, this free Android game will keep you entertained.
Asphalt 8 Airborne
Dubbed the pinnacle of the Asphalt series, the 8th edition of the popular racing game launches you into a breathtaking journey. You get to race at mind-blowing speed through spectacular locations (Iceland and the Great Wall of China are just a few examples) while performing thrilling stunts in mid-air. In short, if you are fast and furious, this game would be a perfect choice.
Another macabre, yet highly entertaining game to have is pandemic simulation- Plague Inc. The goal of the game is to create a deadly virus, evolve and mutate it to eventually wipe out humankind. Evil? Definitely. Entertaining? You bet! The morbid, yet humorous plot is set in a highly realistic setting: from helping your virus handle Russian cold to getting around advanced healthcare system in Sweden. There are a number of evil strategic elements at play that will speak to your devious side and at the same time remind you how tough humankind really is.
2048 is yet another free Android puzzle game, that was first launched on IOS.
The game requires you to combine numbers to make a total of 2048, encouraging strategic planning, as the number of moves is limited. It’s easy to learn and hard to put down. 2048 tests you patience and critical thinking in a simple and accessible way.
Spaceteam is a perfect party game, if UNO and Scrabble don’t do the trick anymore. Get you friends together, connect you phones (Android or IOS) through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and find yourself on a spaceship with a bunch of technical problems. You will get helpful messages, telling you which button to press or lever to pull to avoid a disaster. What makes it fun is that the button or lever could be on anybody’s device and in a matter of seconds you will be yelling out ridiculous commands at each other in the righteous attempt to save the Universe. Spaceteam is sure to liven up any gathering and is a great game to share.
This sums up our list of free Android games we think you should know about.
