Music, videos, and photos can make you giggle and thoroughly entertained, yes, but only app games can keep you so engaged, thrilled, and motivated. In fact, a lot of these Android games are so addicting you can’t last a day without playing a few hours with them (trust us!).
Here are 10 best free casual games for Android phones:
The concept of Fruit Ninja is to simply slice the fruits that appear on the screen a la Ninja. (You don’t really see your virtual character but just the sword). You accomplish that by “slashing” the screen. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. What attaches you to the game is the different challenges. You’re rest in speed and performance.
The leaderboard, which you can access if you have a wireless connection, only compels you to play the Android game over and over until you beat your or somebody else’s score and eventually top the game in the entire world.
Pandas are not only huggable and lovable, but they’re also incredibly tough. Just look at Po! Panda Run is a homage to their agility, wit, and strength. This Android game is somewhat inspired by the notorious Temple Run.
Even the mechanics are very similar: you need to run endlessly through a maze and collect some items along the way for extra power or more points. Your game ends only when you die (perhaps you fell off the temple or, in the case of Panda Run, the shrine). Nevertheless, its different themes and 3D effect makes this very cool.
Angry Birds Space
Though there are already plenty of Angry Birds versions ever since the classic was released, Space is a completely different league. The concept still remains: kill the pigs that are currently in space. However, how you do it is none like any killing spree you’ve made in the past.
The beauty of the Angry Birds Space for Android, besides the stunning background, is the game play itself. For example, how are you going to let those birdies kill the piggies when there are layers of bubbles protecting the latter? What should you do to kill the pigs that are found on the other side of the world or even in another planet. This definitely tests your patience, physics, and ingenuity.
At first glance, Bubble Shoot is a very easy Android game. All you need to do is to shoot three consecutive balls that are of the same color. But as you progress, you discover that there will come a point when you can no longer control how many bubbles appear on the screen.
You’ll then become overwhelmed, can’t think straight, and before you know it, bubbles are fast moving near the end of the screen. Once one of the bubbles touches the screen, the game is certified over.
Who says only the sexy can be a superhero? Meet Hambo, the courageous pig who’s out to save the world—or at least his best friend Bacon. But for him to do that, he needs to be fully prepared for the battle, and it’s your job to help him out. Make sure he gets the 5 mission packs and completes al the 200 levels of the game. Of course, topping the leaderboard is going to be such a sweet bonus for him.
This Android game, by the way, is highly commended for its humor and stunning graphics.
BMX Boy takes you all across three difficult winding terrains with your bike as your only mode of transport. You’ll learn to jump between cliffs, slide down rails, and leap over other characters. Along the way, you need to collect the trophies as well as make as many turns as you can to earn a lot of points.
Every terrain has 30 levels, and each gives you 5 lives. You don’t have to start at the beginning if you die once. You only do so once you’ve used up all your lives. BMX Boy is such a fun game, but you need to watch out when you press the screen. Sometimes the character doesn’t end up jumping too high.
We couldn’t believe how a very basic game of killing an ant can be a smash hit. Aptly called Ant Smasher, your main goal is to kill the ants that appear on the screen, as well as other insects such as flies and spiders. The only creatures you’re not allowed to kill are the bees.
But perhaps the charm of Ant Smasher lies on its different difficulty levels. As you move on to higher levels, you can hardly see the movements of the ants, and you may end up killing the bees, ending the game.
Unlike the virtual basketball Android games you’re familiar with, the Basketball Shoot Android app is so simple and very easy to learn. The objective is to score very high, given the limited number of balls. In order to shoot the ball, however, you need to display some good physics.
Temple Run used to be an Apple app game only. That’s why many were simply overjoyed when they learned they can now install it in their Android tablet or phone. What makes Temple Run so popular, by the way?
It isn’t really about the story, which revolves around a guy who stole a statue in one of the temples, and now he’s chased by a lot of monkeys. The secret is in the manner of gaming. You just don’t tilt the screen so your character moves. You also need to slide, jump, and turn, in order to avoid the barriers, as well as collect points along the way.
Feed Your Dino
The developers don’t really want to label this casual Android game as a clone of Cut the Rope, but the truth is we do see it that way—and it’s completely fine. Even if Cut the Rope is such as smart casual game, Feed Your Dino is available for free. It also has more than 100 levels, enough to challenge your wit, science, and creativity.
