Gaming on mobile phones has evolved over time and so has the way we play it. Gaming on smartphones has reached another level, with mind-boggling graphics, smooth gameplay and multiplayer options over the internet to play with your friend who might as well be sitting in some other country.
Although online games, competing against real-time opponents is the go-to choice for a majority of gamers, but what about the time when your net pack runs out, or you’re in an area where there is no internet access.
Such times can be greeted with one of the offline games available on Google Play store. To make things easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of the best Android games which can be played offline.
1. Assasins Creed Pirates
One of the most exciting gaming franchise in the world, Assassins Creed by Ubisoft, came out with this version of the game and — make no mistake — it’s every bit as thrilling as the ones before this.
The game has been downloaded over 10 million times and gives you the option to play as a young pirate captain, build your crew of sailors, engage in naval combat and explore the magnificent Caribbean.
Get your adrenaline soaring as you compete against the likes of Tom Sykes and Sylvain Guintoli in 13 rounds in an international circuit like Lausitz. Get your gear on and race against speed and time with a cockpit view of the track.
3. Titan Quest
Like RPGs? You’ll love this game. Originally released on PC in 2006, this Android game is set in a mythological backdrop wherein the Titans have escaped prison and are unleashing havoc onto the world. It’s up to the hero – you – to help the Gods defend against the mighty Titans! Will the humans emerge victorious or will the Olympians? The world’s fate rests in your hand.
4. Beach Buggy Racing
This game will make you delve into a wild off-road cart racing adventure which will surely strike your fancy. The rival drivers are all crazy, and each come with their unique abilities.
You get to choose from a variety of cars from dune buggies to monster trucks and can also collect powerups like Dodgeball Frenzy, Fireball, and Oil Slick to make the race fun across six different game modes and 15 tracks.
5. Madout Open City
This fast-paced racing game is as mean as things can get. The only thing that matters is winning the race, no matter how, you just need to win the race — upgrade your car with weapons, smash your opponents car into pieces or blow them up.
The game is a mixture of crazy and racing. You even get to explore the city, but beware — though your rivals are bots, they’re designed to be equally crazy and enthusiastic about winning the race.
6. Asphalt 8: Airborne
One of the most popular mobile phone racing games since the Symbian-era, Asphalt 8 is a perfect example of a franchise that refused to lose its user base. With over 200 million downloads, this is one of the most played games ever and made it to the list due to its fantastic gameplay, which has only gotten better over time.
In case your phone doesn’t support the game due to the amazing graphics, don’t worry, Gameloft doesn’t disappoint, and they came out with Asphalt Nitro — a scaled down version of the game — that can be played on devices with a graphic card of lower configuration.
7. Gangstar Vegas
Explore Las Vegas and take part in the wildest mafia wars of all time on your handheld device as you play an MMA fighter, who later on goes on to be the centre of Vegas’ mafia gang wars. You can race on air, water and street, and fight in the MMA or make your way up as a shooter and even play addictive Casino games.
Lose yourself in the insanity of this high-graphic game by Gameloft and emerge as the top dog in Las Vegas.
