Smartphones have replaced traditional game consoles. Whereas smartphones were originally thought to be the province of casual games like Candy Crush or Angry Birds, they have become the number one gaming destination for just about every type of player. Do you want to try your hand at a shooter? These are available on Google Play. Do you want to play a puzzle game? You’ll hit one if you throw a dart. Do you want the full story-driven RPG experience? You are welcome to it. We’ve compiled a list of the best games for  Android for 2021.

We’ve tested and evaluated all of the best games for Android, covering all genres, and compiled them all right here. There will be no more botched console conversions or drab puzzles – only the greatest touchscreen experiences will be found here.

Call of Duty: Mobile

Our vote for the greatest Android game in 2019 was Call of Duty: Mobile. We generally wait a bit before adding a game, but because Call of Duty: Mobile is so popular and has such a good rating, we included it sooner than normal. The game includes a standard FPS online PvP mode as well as a 100-player battle royale mode. This places it unique since it supports both battle royale games like PUBG Mobile and traditional FPS PvP games like Critical Ops or Modern Combat.

There’s a surprisingly large lot to accomplish. It is a free-to-play game. However, the majority of in-game purchases are aesthetic in nature. You may discover some more amazing FPS games or general shooting games here if you want additional choices.

Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact is an action RPG featuring a gacha system. The game was also chosen as the greatest game of 2020 by us. It gained widespread critical acclaim at its initial release for its stunning aesthetics and engaging gameplay. It looks and behaves like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but no one seems to mind. There is a party system in the game. You may summon additional characters using a gacha system similar to the previous gachas.

However, the game’s aesthetic components, gameplay mechanisms, and entirely open world (complete with glider) make it feel a lot less limited than most in the genre. Unless the developer makes a mistake, it should be wonderful for a long time.

Of course, if you want to see more, there are more amazing gacha games here.


GRID Autosport debuted in 2019 and quickly rose to prominence as one of the greatest racing games on Android. The Riptide GP and Asphalt franchises are also pretty nice, but GRID Autosport checks practically every box. It’s a paid game with no in-app purchases or advertisements.

The game also has great visuals, controls, hardware controller compatibility, a ton of material to go through, a ton of vehicles to unlock, and various racing types. The game is a little pricey, and it lacks a few minor features that racing fans want, but it’s still one of the greatest racing experiences on the Play Store.

The only serious complaint we have is the lack of updates. More amazing racing games (including the iconic Asphalt series) may be found here.

Legends of Runeterra

Legends of Runeterra is one of the list’s newest Android games. It’s an online battler in the vein of games like Hearthstone. Players amass cards and heroes, then construct decks out of those cards and heroes. You then engage in online combat with your opponents. The game reduces as much unpredictability as possible, resulting in a pleasant overall gameplay experience.

The game comes with 24 champions, a deck of cards, and the ability to challenge friends to a fight. Hearthstone has dominated this list for a long time, but it is time for a new champion to emerge.


Levelhead is a new platformer from the same creator as Crashlands, Butterscotch Shenanigans. Crashlands has been on this list for two or three years, and we expect Levelhead to stay for a while as well. It’s a platformer with 90 levels, unexpectedly pleasant controls, and hilarious comedy. On the other hand, this one stands out from the crowd because of its very exceptional custom level building.

Levels may be created by players and uploaded to the game. Other players download them, and the most popular end up in the renowned vault of the game. In addition, the game has fast running capabilities, and each level has its own scoreboard (even the custom ones).



Minecraft is a popular game for people of all ages all around the world. Minecraft immerses you in a massive world where you may mine, create, beat up evil dudes, and do pretty much anything you want for those who have never played. There is a survival mode in which you must mine your own resources and food, as well as a creative one in which you have infinite everything. Frequent upgrades have resulted in a plethora of fresh content and opportunities.

The game is nearly as good as its PC and console predecessors. You can, in fact, play on multiplayer servers with users from those platforms. There are in-app purchases. However, they are just for cosmetic items such as skin packs.

Pokemon Go

Pokemon GO debuted on the mobile gaming landscape in July 2016 and quickly became one of the finest Android games of all time. It’s an augmented reality game akin to Ingress. You roam around the real world catching Pokemon, doing side objectives, fighting for Gyms, and visiting Pokestops to refill supplies. As the world’s most popular mobile game, it broke nearly every previous record.

Fortunately, the game is frequently updated with new features. Recent additions include an AR camera option, new Pokemon, and a slew of other cool features. Niantic recently released Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, an AR game based on the Harry Potter series with similar concepts.

Sky: Children of Light

Thatgamecompany rose to prominence with three critically praised indie art games: Flow, Flower, and Journey. Sky: Children of Light unquestionably continues in that tradition. This is a family-friendly MMO about holding hands and flying around open, non-linear, theme park-style stages. It’s both charming and thrilling. You converse nonverbally using numerous emotes, like in Journey, allowing connections to cross countries and language boundaries.

Room Series

The Room is a puzzle game series comprised of four games. It was the first franchise to excel in the puzzle genre on smartphones. The new installment in The Room series is equally as popular as its predecessors. They continue to rank among the top Android games. The Room is a series of puzzle escape games. Each chamber contains a slew of enigmatic artifacts.

Your objective is to solve the riddles and escape. You move from room to room, searching for more unusual artifacts and solving their puzzles until you win the game. The Room: Old Sins, the most recent installment, adds cloud saving, Google Play Games achievements, and even a tiny exploring aspect. This distinguishes it from the prior three games’ pure puzzle experiences.

None of them are bad choices. They’re all excellent. There are several more great escape games here if you want to see more here, but The Room is unquestionably the finest.

Dead Effect 2

dead effect 2

Online multiplayer is great, but what if you want a nice single-player experience? Dead Effect 2 is a first-person horror game with RPG components, similar to System Shock and Dead Space. If you prefer terrifying space games or even a single-player Android shooter, you should give this one a shot – as long as you don’t mind some strange voice acting.


Witcheye offers all of the hallmarks of a classic platformer: bright, chunky visuals, roaming opponents, and a harsh difficulty level. It lacks platforming since you control a floating eyeball rather than leaping around.

It turns out that a witch is hard on the trail of the knight who stole her riches. As a witch, she naturally changes into a floating eyeball to pursue him. (Broomsticks, it appears, are a thing of the past.) Swiping to move the eyeball and pressing to stop are the only controls available.

You may sometimes breeze through stages by avoiding slamming into opponents to eliminate them. However, doing so deprives you of the thrill of discovering collectibles and perfecting eyeball movement so you can take down enemies in beautifully realistic confrontations. Overall, it’s an iPad game that’s a terrific combination of old and modern, and it’s well adapted for touch.


The phrase “masterpiece” is frequently overused in gaming circles, but Limbo unquestionably deserves such high acclaim. It follows a little kid as he searches for his sister in a scary monochromatic environment. Limbo is a rather straightforward platform game with a handful of riddles at its heart. Still, its stark graphics, spooky mood, and great level design convert it into something altogether else.

You’ll feel a chill the first time a chittering figure disappears in the distance. Your heart will race when you’re pursued by a massive spider intent on spearing your little form with one of its huge spiky legs.

The fact that death is never the end — each scenario may be replayed indefinitely until you advance — just adds to Limbo’s unsettling character.

Honorable Mention

Among Us

among us

Even though it was released in 2018, Among Us ruled the gaming market in 2020 as the ideal, paranoid, quarantine hobby. While you and your fellow astronauts labor together to repair your spaceship, covert saboteurs operate behind the scenes to discreetly kill you all. Trust nothing and no one, whether you employ plain old-fashioned social manipulation to flush out the truth or lie your head off to keep the illusion going.
