    Cool 50 Deeply Addictive Android Games

    I think itís safe to say that most Android users have a favourite game. Whether you prefer puzzle games, titles from the arcade and action genre or perhaps sports simulations, there must be one that has, in some way, engrossed you.


    Iíve had the privilege of writing Android reviews now for around eighteen months and have probably scribbled somewhere around 500 or more pieces on Android Appstorm and elsewhere. Of these, very many have been games and certain titles have stood out as being particularly addictive. Namely, the ones I carry on playing long after the review has been published.


    So here, for your perusal, debate and discussion, are top 50 addictive Android games. You should be warned that these can swallow your spare time without mercy, often leaving you groggy and disorientated, sometime after midnight and hours of hardcore playing. With that as a small warning, say goodbye to productivity and read onÖ

    take care!

    Tiny Tower

    Tiny Tower is a cute, retro tycoon game where you build a tower and populate it with cool characters.
    Itís a perfectly casual game where you can dip in and out when the time suits you.


    From the quirky characters and the ability to dress them in various uniforms,
    to the Bitbook posts which tell you how they are getting on,
    gameplay is compulsive and immediately engrossing.

    It also featured in Android Appstormís 33 Fantastic Retro Games to Get Nostalgic About, such is itís old-school appeal.


    Price: Free

    Requires: Android 2.0 or above

    Developer: Mobage

    Game Dev Story

    Game Dev Story is another top retro title that has the tightest of gaming grips.
    Here you have to run your own game development company by creating a series of awesome games and
    managing a cool team of developers and creatives.


    This game chills me when I think of quite how addicted I was to it.
    3am finishes with bleary eyes and a dying phone battery werenít uncommon.
    Kairosoft have made several similar titles so definitely check them out in the Google Play Store.



    Price: $2.50

    Requires: Android 1.6 or above

    Developer: Kairosoft Co.,Ltd

    WarGames: WOPR

    WarGames: WOPR is a puzzle game based on the 80′s movie of the same name.
    Essentially you have to link similar icons together to build high scores and defeat your competitor (made up of characters from the film).


    Wrapped in images and dialogue from the movie, the gameplay is challenging and has you hooked almost immediately.
    Not many games have me desperate to complete them but this did, literally ďunputdownableĒ.


    Price:
    $0.99

    Requires: Android 2.2 or above

    Developer: Be-Rad Entertainment

    New Star Soccer

    In New Star Soccer you have to live the life of an up-and-coming football player.
    With both on-field and off-field elements to gameplay, itís a fantastic time-waster for any fan of the game.


    A football journalist I follow tweeted about New Star Soccer, along with an apology for the ensuing loss of productivity the game would cause him.
    After 3 weeks, I had to wean myself off it and deploy levels of willpower I was unaware I had. Outstanding game, but it seriously dents your real life.


    Price: $2.99

    Requires: Android 1.5 or above

    Developer: New Star Games Ltd

    DEAD TRIGGER

    Dead Trigger is an immersive and haunting first-person zombie shootíem-up that sees you completing missions
    and wiping out the undead in the most detailed and richest of mobile environments.


    The gameplay, visuals and sound combine to stunning effect to deliver a game that demands your attention and doesnít like letting go.
    Play it on a tablet in the dark and youíll find it more chilling than some horror films.

    Price: Free

    Requires: Android Varies with device

    Developer: MADFINGER Games

    Rebuild

    Sticking with the zombie theme, in Rebuild you have to strategically help build a small community of survivors.
    You need to expand your compound and protect your assets from the burgeoning undead who attack frequently.
    The game is rife with terrible moral decisions and devastating events that continually rock your progress.


    The game somehow evokes compassion in you for the welfare of your community members.
    When one dies you canít help but feel saddened at the loss.
    Quite possibly one of the most engrossing titles in this round-up, it has a vice like grip that is incredibly hard to ignore.


    Price: $2.99

    Requires: Android 2.2 or above

    Angry Birds Space Premium

    An Angry Birds game had to make the list, didnít it?
    The premise is beautifully simple; fire various birds at buildings in order to destroy the evil thieving pigs.
    There are hundreds of levels and several bird types to deploy as the story unravels.


    The series has spawned a number of titles now and has been downloaded millions of times across various platforms.
    It is the quintessential Ďmust-playí game.
    I canít rightly choose one as being more addictive than another,
    so here is the latest and graphically richest of the series, Angry Birds Space.


    Price:
    $0.99

    Requires: Android 1.6 or above

    Developer: Rovio Mobile Ltd.

    100 Doors

    100 Doors is a challenging puzzle game where you have to open a door on every level.
    Using logic, patience and a dash of strategy, gamers must work out exactly how to open each door to progress.


    The game has gathered an army of fanatics online where solutions are shared like commodities.
    Itís often very simple to play but really tests and challenges your lateral thinking.
    As such itís tough to put down and highly addictive for puzzle fans.


    Price: Free

    Requires: Android 2.2 or above

    Temple Run

    Temple Run burst onto the Android scene after being hugely popular on iOS.
    Run, jump, slide and turn your way along an ancient wall as you escape from rabid demon-monkeys.
    The game requires fast reactions and nerves of steel to do well.


    The challenge is to last as long as you can and complete various missions as you do so.
    Subsequently itís one of the most casual and aggressively engrossing games available in the Google Play Store.


    Price: Free

    Requires: Android 2.1 or above

    Developer: Imangi Studios

    A Story of a Band

    A Story of a Band is an awesome retro-style title where you manage and develop an emerging rock band and guide them to super stardom.
    Not a million miles away from the kind of gameplay you find in Game Dev Story and itís ilk,
    A Story of a Band sees you guide your group through a history of contemporary music.


    Want to be the first band to establish punk?
    Go on tour, produce new albums and manage your hard-drinking band members in a game that rocks very hard indeed.

    Word Weasel

    If you like word games, definitely be sure to check out Word Weasel.
    In a nutshell itís like playing Boggle at gun point.
    You play against other online gamers to get the highest score in two minutes.
    It also made itís way into our round up of the quintessential word games.


    Itís fast paced, highly addictive and massively rewarding if you do well.
    Your average score changes with each round so make sure you do as best as you can.
    Another game Iíve played long into the night and it continues to draw me back time and time again.

    My Singing Monsters

    One of my more recent obsessions, My Singing Monsters is a game where you grow a breath-taking choir of quirky creatures.
    Breed, grow eggs and place new monsters on a variety of harmonious islands.


    Keeping monsters happy and belting out catchy tunes is one thing, but leaving the game alone for more than a day is really challenging.
    A great casual game, itís something both adults and children can get heavily addicted to.

    Free

    Requires: Android 2.3 or above

    Monsters Ate My Condo

    Monsters Ate My Condo comes from the wacky imagination of the folks at Adult Swim.
    Simply combine and/or swipe away apartment levels into the hungry mouths of deranged monsters.


    Quite unlike anything you will have ever seen before, it’s easy to play but tricky to put down.
    The monsters are incredibly silly but gameplay is insanely addictive.


    Price: $0.99

    Requires: Android 2.3.3 or above

    Night of the Living Dead

    There are probably hundreds of tower defense games in the Google Play Store but this one stands out for me.
    Tied closely to the original film of the same name,
    Night of the Living Dead features effects and sound bites from the movie which make it incredibly immersive and compelling.


    What really kept me coming back to the game over and over again however was the gripping atmosphere which just permeates through every level.
    It’s eerie, engaging and ultimately one of the most compulsively playable tower defense games available today.


    Price: $0.99

    Requires: Android 2.1 or above
