We all know that Android devices can be amazing productivity tools, when you know how to use them right. But we also know that “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”; there are moments in life when you just need to kick back and chill, for the sake of recharging batteries and optimizing productivity.
With that in mind, this article will present you to the seven best offerings currently available at the Android marketplace, in terms of gaming.
And since we are well aware these are challenging times from a financial standpoint, this list is comprised exclusively of games you can play for free. So… why not indulge yourself for a few minutes by trying some of these free Android games to help you chill a bit:
Lyric Legend 2 – Music Game
If you enjoy console games such as Guitar Hero or Elite Beat Agents, you should try this interesting twist in the musical gaming genre for Android. It’s essentially a rhythm game where your role is clicking the right combination of words to match the lyrics of the music.
It is one of those games that sounds boring when you hear of it, interesting when you try it, and hopelessly addictive after you play it a few times.
For anyone who prefers traditional games, this should fit the bill. UNO free is a digital version of the popular card game that’s all about colors, numbers and changing directions.
If you have tried it, then you know it’s extremely entertaining – especially when played with good friends. For that reason, the Android version of UNO obviously allows online play, which suits this game just fine.
A simple and charming game that takes full advantage of tilt controls, Air Penguin will get you muttering “just one more stage and I’ll get back to work” for extended periods of time. The story is quite simple: you need to reunite papa penguin with the family, who is scattered across floating chunks of ice.
To achieve this, you need to balance your Android device to steer the little guy in the right direction. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? Well, that’s only until you advance the first half dozen levels!
If you’re the kind of player who fancies the farm simulator genre and you happened to have grown up in the 80’s, this title will surely delight you. As the name suggests, you’ll be in charge of the smurf’s village: and your role is to organize the blue folks in the best possible way as to maximize crops and avert natural (and not so natural) disasters.
Solid game here – and the graphics are really top notch!
In case you’re in the mood for a bit of furious hack & slash action, Colosseum Heroes is one of your best options. Play either as a human warrior or a vampire, and enter the Colosseum where you’ll face endless hordes of enemies.
Choose from dozens of weapons and rejoice in the exhilarating battles, fast-paced, energetic and full of color. Production values for this game are highly respectable, with fluid animations and great diversity in characters and backgrounds.
