5. Dead Cells
Having already been out for a couple of years on PC – we knew what to expect when Dead Cells was announced for Mobiles earlier this year.
Fans of games like Celeste and Mario will want to pick up Dead Cells when they get the chance. It is a fast-paced 2D platformer where your timing and ‘finesse’ will see you perform better and avoid death.
The game is regularly updated with new features and has brilliant replay value!
A bonus feature is you can hook it up to your PS4/Xbox controller!

4. Graveyard Keeper
Think if Terraria had a love child with Minecraft and Stardew Valley… this is the monstrous creation that would be spawned.
Labelled as an ‘ inaccurate medieval cemetery management simulator’ you are tasked with building and managing your very own graveyard. The aim is to cut costs, provide entertainment (via witch burnings and festivals etc) whilst turning over a profit!
The game is quirky and fun and can provide hours of entertainment for your commute or watching a rom-com.

3. PUBG Mobile Lite & Mobile
Rejoice for Tencent Games
(the publisher of PUBG Mobile)
this year delivered a more optimised version of the hit battle royale game for mobile devices.
PUBG Mobile Lite is a ‘lighter’ version of PUBG Mobile which makes gameplay smoother and more accessible for players who may not have the latest device or software!
Not only is the map slightly smaller it is also made for a maximum of 6 people – this makes for a more fast-paced game which a lot of fans love!

2. Call of Duty Mobile
COD Mobile was announced earlier this year to a large amount of scepticism.
PUBG fans were keen to get their hands on this game as it was promising to offer a whole new FPS experience on handheld devices.
Oh boy did Call of Duty Mobile deliver! The game hit 100 million downloads in its first week, crushing both Fortnite and PUBG and putting them in their respective places.
Not only is this game a great introduction to the Call of Duty franchise it delivers some great nostalgia for those fans who may have played the series back in the day.

All three Reigns games — Reigns, Reigns: Her Majesty, and Reigns: Game of Thrones — are available on Google Play Pass, and each offers new opportunities to rule your kingdom with an iron thumb (if you choose). Though, I hope your Reigns: Game of Thrones runs are more satisfying than Game of Thrones’ final season.
This year, everyone’s favorite farming game finally came to Android, and it’s guaranteed to be an incredibly addicting way to get you through the holiday doldrums. I’ve lost hours to this game playing just another day over and over again as I tend my crops, visit my farm animals, and make friends with every townsperson that I can.
Star Wars: KOTOR
It’s Star Wars season, and there’s no better way to celebrate than sinking hours into Star Wars: KOTOR, which remains one of the best Star Wars games. Will you be a hero and become a Jedi, or go full dark side and embrace your inner Sith? The force is still strong with this beloved RPG.
Terraria, the famous side-scrolling action-adventure sandbox game, was first released for PCs all the way back in 2011, and it’s still being updated over eight years later. The Android version’s touchscreen controls can be a little clunky, but don’t let them stop you from the potential hours of dungeon-crawling that await you in Terraria.
Honorable Mention: Fortnite
Fortnite, which remains one of the world’s most popular games, isn’t available on Google Play Pass, but it’s free through the Epic Games App. Its touchscreen controls might not be the easiest way to play the game, but if you want to get in a couple drops off the Battle Bus while you’re away from your console or PC, they’ll do the trick.
