Can anyone recommend a good game for Android phones?
July 10, 2017

There's really not a lot to say beyond the tagline here. I have found myself with small chunks of time at my disposal while I'm away from my home PC on certain days, with not a lot to do to fill them. My phone has a few games on it already, but nothing with any real longevity. I need a good, solid game that plays well on a phone rather than a tablet, but there's so much garbage on Android that I'm not sure where to start. So much of the Android library is composed of cheesy free-to-play scams or just utter recycled crap.

So, any ideas? I don't really have many caveats, here. I don't want an online game (my phone has a data blocker), but I'm not opposed to spending a little money - I'm even willing to play a free-to-play thing if it's worth the time and energy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hungry Shark World is enjoyable in small spurts. I also quite like Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius. Slayaway Camp is also good, and it's got some decent longevity to it. However, I would only recommend it if you're a big fan of '80s horror movies. Beyond that, almost everything I've played mobile is either shallow or repetitive.

Most of the Revolution Software back catalog is available on Android. While it's not the best way to play them, they're brilliant games well ported. Start with Beneath a Steel Sky.

Thanks, guys. Now to find one that will fit on my phone's tiny storage capacity...

My most recommended Android games are the Quell trilogy: Quell, Quell Reflect, and Quell Memento. Great little puzzle games. There's also Angry Birds, which is one of the quintessential mobile games, so play that if you already haven't. Another quintessential mobile game is Bejeweled Classic, which is THE "match three" game.

Since you said "good game", I'll refrain from even saying "Kemco" beyond that one use of that unholy word. So, uh, I have heard decent/good things about a Square-Enix series called Chaos Rings or something like that, although you saying "tiny storage capacity" about your phone might not bode well for trying one of those. Other than that, I think most of the good mobile games I've heard about are ports from other mediums and, this might just be me, I'd rather play games like that on a larger screen than my phone or tablet.

I second Angry Birds. That game is crack. Also Plants vs. Zombies.
