The 10 best free Android games of 2018 - The Happy Android

They say the best things in life don't cost money. Although normally when we pay for a service or product we expect a certain quality, that does not mean that free must necessarily be bad. On the contrary! In Android this is something that is fulfilled to the letter. There are very good free games on the Google Play Store, and today we are going to review some of the most outstanding ones.

Although many of these titles have ads and in-app purchases for profit, yes. Luckily all the games that we will see below are 100% enjoyable without scratching our pockets at any time, or resorting to purchases in-game.

The best free games of 2018 for Android mobiles

It is never easy to make such a list. Especially in cases like this, where the offer is so great that you don't even know where to start. For this reason, we have tried to include -the best- games of various genres and themes, and that each one of them stays with the one they like the most ...

Sword of Xolan

Sword of Xolan is a sword and witchcraft platformer in a lovely pixel art style. We will have to control Xolan while we jump and kill all kinds of 90s enemies with our powerful sword. All this with final bosses that in some cases will make us sweat the fat drop.

The game shines thanks to an excellent level design, with meticulously placed enemies, secrets, traps and jumps. The only "but" we can put to Sword of Xolan is that there is no progressive difficulty scaling, being just as difficult (or easy) from the beginning to the end of the game. A highly recommended title, in any case.

PUBG Mobile

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds came out very recently in its Android version. However it is already one of the most popular shooters for Android. If you still do not know PUBG, it is a battle royale for 100 players located on a small island.

Players can collect weapons, items, and vehicles as they kill other opponents and the island gets smaller and smaller (so games don't get too long). One of the 2 greats of the genre, along with Fortnite.

Asphalt 9: Legends

The latest edition of the best-known racing arcade for Android. A frenetic game in which we can drive sports cars from Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and many other well-known brands.

It has more than 50 cars and 800 events. The game opts more for fun than raw realism, delivering a great arcade experience with nitros, 360-degree spins, crashes and console-level graphics.

Alto’s Odyssey

The sequel to Alto’s Adventure maintains the simplicity and beauty of its predecessor, adding new elements to enhance its gameplay. An infinite runner in which we will travel through deserts doing sandboarding, accompanied by a beautiful soundtrack. It is recommended to play with headphones.

It is one of those titles that captivates you because of the beauty of its set and the gaming experience. Alto’s Odissey is free, but it has ads that we can remove with in-app purchases.

Doom was a pioneer when it came to first-person shooters. Freedoom, it is precisely, a 100% free port of this classic for PC, with some changes and new levels to avoid copyright problems.

The game also allows loading WAD files of the original Doom, if what we are looking for is the most classic experience possible. The best thing is that this also works with similar games that use the same engine, such as Heretic, Hexen or Strife.

Crossy road

A really successful game in which we step into the shoes of a retro-pixel chicken (or a dinosaur, a penguin, and so on up to 100 different characters) and try to overcome all the obstacles that stand in our way. Do you remember the mythical Frogger from the 80s? The idea is basically the same.

In addition to being a great offline game, it also has multiplayer mode, it is compatible with Android TV and of course it is free. It has purchases in the game, but they are purely cosmetic, so we can spend the entire title without spending a single euro.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Undoubtedly one of the best free games for Android. The well-known Blizzard Entertainmet title is a card duel-type game, in the vein of other classics of the genre such as “Magic: The Gathering”.

The thing is to create your own deck of cards to then play against other players, although we can also fight against other bots to practice. Blizzard usually releases new cards and updates on a regular basis, something essential so that a good card game does not fall into boredom or monotony. In addition, we can use the same account to log in both on PC and mobile.

Plague Inc.

Have you ever thought about creating a virus to exterminate humanity? Well, that is exactly what Plague Inc. is about. We have to choose between 12 types of deadly viruses to infect the population, but yes, the game has an artificial intelligence that will try to avoid it at all costs, making it increasingly difficult for us.

This strategy game is so realistic that the creators were invited to give a talk at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). A different proposal that is worth trying.

Skyforce realoaded

One of the best-made "martian killers" that we can find for mobile phones and tablets. And it's also free. If we like this classic arcade genre we cannot ignore Sky Force Reloaded (a game that, by the way, we already talked more extensively in this ANOTHER POST).

Like the rest of the titles in the Sky Force saga, it has excellent graphics, maintaining the old-school spirit of the genre, as well as hours and hours of fun.

Clash royale

We finish the list with Clash Royale, a game from the same creators of the also popular Clash of Clans. It is a MOBA oriented to the defense of towers really addictive.

In Clash Royale we fight online against other players, and our objective is to demolish the 3 towers of our enemy before he does the same with us. A game in which the correct use of resources and strategy prevail.
