Arcade games are known for their addictive gameplay and their challenge. No further ado, let’s check out the best arcade games for Android on this list!
For a long time, arcade games were among the most popular in the world. They usually have short play times, consistent challenges, and simple gameplay. They’re marked by their increase in challenge as the game progresses. The result is a highly addictive, enjoyable experience that gives players the urge to keep going. However, playtimes are generally shorter and they aren’t deep games. Thus, you can have fun when you want. Arcade games on mobile aren’t quite the same as their coin-operated predecessors, but they can still provide a good time. Here are the best arcade games for Android!
Brawl Stars is the latest game from Supercell, developers of Clash of Clans and Clash Royale. This online arcade brawler is surprisingly engaging. You and several other random online players go head to head against other players in several different game types. That includes three vs three, two vs two, and one vs one game types along with several three vs three game types. It’s a quick play with a bunch of action. Supercell did well with this one. Of course, other Supercell games are fun for killing some time as well.
Crossy Road is one of the most popular mobile games ever. It’s basically this generation’s version of Frogger. You move a character across roads, train tracks, rivers, and other areas. The goal is to avoid being crushed, run over, or drowned. The game features a ton of playable characters, local and online multiplayer support. Android TV support, and more. The game is freemium. However, it’s mostly unlocking playable characters. You can’t pay to win this game. It’s fun, it’s mostly family-friendly, and it’s an excellent example of a modern arcade game.
Duet is an interesting and entertaining arcade game. You rotate two balls around an axis and simultaneously avoid falling platforms of various shapes. The free version of the game comes with the campaign mode, achievements, and some other goodies. The full game adds a few additional game modes, more achievements, and more. Most of the rest of them are freemium games. Thankfully, the game is also legitimately good and fun. Fans of the series still play this game, despite it coming out years ago.
We were hoping Forza would be a shoo-in for our best racing games list. However, it ended up being a little less about racing and a little more about the arcade aspect. It is technically a racing game. However, the car drives itself and players tap things like brake and NOS to control things like speed and drift. The game includes excellent graphics, a bunch of cars to play with, and even a story mode to play through. It’s not what we were expecting, but it’s still pretty good.
Alto’s Adventure gives you solid gameplay wrapped in a beautiful visual experience. Achievements let you focus on specific skills to level up.
This snowy endless runner concept is one that’s been done before very well with Ski Safari. But while the gameplay might not stack up with that mature classic, what sets Alto’s Adventure apart is a graphical style that’s visually stunning and immersive as you race down the mountain.
Sky Force Reloaded
Sky Force Reloaded is an ode to old, top-down shooters. This one has better graphics and mechanics, though. The game includes a campaign mode with many missions. There are also mini-missions, upgrades, power-ups, and more. The mechanics are easy enough to learn. You just glide your finger around to move your plane and shoot bad guys. It’s a freemium title. However, the IAPs aren’t as bad as we’ve seen in other titles.
