Don’t need an internet connection you can still play these 6 best offline games. Read now and discover!
Mobile games are known for their portability, seeing that we all carry our smartphones with us. Sadly a reliable connection to the internet isn’t guaranteed, which means games that require an online connection are much less viable when you’re out and about. The good news is that there are plenty of titles that support offline play, making up some of the best Android games around. But in order to keep things simple, AP has compiled a list of the most enjoyable titles that can be played offline, and many of them support Android’s best controllers.
So whether you’re looking to challenge yourself with arcade titles like Super Hexagon or prefer to relax with the slow farming life found in Stardew Valley, you’re covered. Let’s dig in!
1. Dead Cells
Dead Cells is one of the best roguelike platformers available on the Play Store. The Android port is fantastic. You can select from 30FPS, 60FPS, and unlimited FPS in the game’s settings, and there’s also an HD graphics option for everyone with a beefy device. We’ve spent a lot of time playing this roguelike on Android and can confidently say the game runs like butter at max settings on high-end hardware. While this title demands precision controls, it’s fully playable with the touchscreen as well as a physical controller.
Dead Cells is the cream of the crop when it comes to platformers. If you’ve yet to play, don’t miss out because this is a game you can play anywhere.
2. My Friend Pedro: Ripe for Revenge
My Friend Pedro first made waves on the PC and Nintendo Switch, where you utilize a slick slowdown mechanic to take down your enemies. Seeing that the console/PC game was based on a popular Flash game, it makes sense that the game would come to mobile, thanks to simple controls. We didn’t get a direct port of the console game, but we did get a mobile offshoot that plays on a 2D plane, and it’s just as great. Plus it can be played offline, which makes it a perfect title for this roundup.
My Friend Pedro: Ripe for Revenge is free to try. If you like what you see, unlock the full title in its entirety for $3, making this a premium release.
3. Grand Mountain Adventure
Winter sports games used to be highly popular back in the PS1/PS2 days. The genre has fallen by the wayside, with only Ubisoft carrying the AAA mantle. Since then, Toppluva AB created one of the best winter sports games in recent memory. Even though it’s a mobile game, it’s jampacked with content that can all be played offline.
There’s a total of seven open-world mountains to explore, adding up to more than 100 challenges spread across these maps. You can ski, you can snowboard, and controller support is included. There’s even a free-play zen mode for those who want to hit the slopes. All around, it’s a great game that shouldn’t be missed, especially if you’re a huge Coolboarders/SSX fan.
4. Monument Valley
An oldie but a goodie, Monument Valley is a slick puzzle game where you interact with each level, bending it to your will to ensure your character moves to their desired position to solve the puzzle. The graphics are slick, the controls are responsive, and the game is challenging. It’s everything a game should be, and it’s also perfect for mobile, thanks to its bite-sized gameplay.
While there is a license check after installing the game, after connecting on your first boot up, you’re good to play without an internet connection, which is precisely why Monument Valley is in today’s roundup. It’s a great game to play offline. If you haven’t experienced this masterpiece, take it for a spin.
5. Super Hexagon
If you enjoy challenging arcade-style games, you’re in luck. Super Hexagon fits that description perfectly. And it’s been updated with high framerate support along with controller support, so it’s a standout release that’s pretty old but still supported. Plus, the entire game can be played offline, making it a perfect title for commuters, thanks to its bite-sized play.
Sessions tend to be quick and failure is a constant, but there is surely something incredibly fun about trying again and again to conquer the game’s simple rules and fast motion.
For $3, you can’t go wrong.
6. Stardew Valley
Stardew Valley – One of the best Sandbox Games of all time for those who love discovering
Stardew Valley is a farming and life simulator, a niche genre with a dedicated fanbase. If you remember having fun with titles like Harvest Moon, this has similar (but more wide-ranging) gameplay. No spoilers. You can easily spend hundreds of hours playing, with lots of replayability.
Sure, things start simple enough by planting a few crops and maybe raising a chicken or two. That’s great if you prefer to play at a casual pace. Then again, if you’re looking for a game with some depth, not to mention an endless campaign, Stardew Valley is easily a top choice in today’s roundup, especially since the game supports gamepads.
This a fun game to play with touch controls on a phone, and you can really dig in on tablets and Chromebooks while out and about thanks to the included controller support and no requirement for an internet connection.
No Wi-Fi? No problem!
