Gaming on mobile has been improving at a far greater rate than any technology that came before it. Android games seem to hit new heights every year. And this year 2020 here are the most trending games.
Call of Duty: Mobile
Call of Duty: Mobile is the latest game on this list. We usually wait a while before adding a game, but Call of Duty: Mobile is so intensely popular with such a high rating that we added it more quickly than usual. The game has both a normal FPS online PvP mode along with a 100-player battle royale. That puts it in a rare category where it does battle royale like PUBG Mobile, but also regular FPS PvP like Critical Ops or Modern Combat. There is a surprising amount of stuff to do. It is a free to play game, but most of the in-game purchases are cosmetic items. It still has some bugs, but it’s relatively new so that’s only natural. It’ll get better over time.
Pokemon GO exploded onto the mobile gaming scene in July 2016 and immediately became of the best Android games ever. It’s an augmented reality game similar to Ingress where you walk around the real world, catch Pokemon, complete little side missions, battle for Gyms, and hit up Pokestops to restock on items. It beat virtually every record in the books as the world’s most popular mobile game. Thanksfully, the game gets frequent updates with new features. Some more recent features include an AR camera mode, new Pokemon, and a bunch of other neat stuff. Niantic also launched Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, a Harry Potter AR game with similar mechanics.
PUBG Mobile hit the ground running upon its releases. It already has over ten million downloads and nearly a million user reviews. Thankfully, it’s actually a very competent mobile FPS. It features simple, effective controls, decent graphics. and a simple premise. Basically, 100 people drop from a plane onto an island and duke it out until only one is left standing. The island is littered with gear, weapons, and vehicles along with a mechanic that lowers the play area over time to keep matches from lasting too long. Recent updates added new game modes as well as a freemium element. PUBG Mobile Lite is a lighter version of the game with fewer players per match and lower graphical settings. It’s only available for some devices, though. Fornite is another excellent option if you don’t mind downloading the game directly from Epic Games instead of Google Play.
Minecraft is a popular game all around the world for people of all ages. For those who have never played, Minecraft puts you in a giant world where you mine stuff, build stuff, beat up bad guys, and do pretty much whatever you want. There is a survival mode where you must mine your own resources and food along with a creative mode that gives you unlimited everything. Frequent updates have added tons of new content and possibilities. The game is pretty much on par with its PC and console counterparts. In fact, you can play on multiplayer servers with people on those platforms. Nifty. There are in-app purchases, but they’re usually just for customization things like skin packs.
Evoland 1 and 2
Evoland 1 and 2 are two of the most unique Android games. They both use a variety of game mechanics. That includes puzzle, RPG, top-down shooter, classic fighter, trading card, and platformer mechanics. The games pay ode to the proverbial good old days of gaming. Each switch in mechanics also changes the graphics to better suit that part of the game. It’s really a unique experience. Both games also offer hardware controller support, no in-app purchases, no ads, and plenty of story to play through. These are definitely excellent. The publisher, Playdigious, also has Cultist Simulator, OK Golf, Teslagrad, and a couple of other above average (and premium) mobile games
