30 retro games from the mobiles of yesteryear, free and without ads for Android

26 mayo, 2021

Gameloft is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and to celebrate it has relaunched its collection of classics for Android, but with an important difference compared to last year’s version: now it is free and no ads.

That is, by installing Gameloft Classics on an Android mobile you have access to 30 of the most popular Gameloft games like Zombie Infection, NOVA, Block Breaker, Brain Challenge and many more.

30 Gameloft classics, free

Gameloft Classics works similar to a virtual console, emulating the controls of a classic mobile of yesteryear, and the majority are games designed for feature phones more than a decade ago.

The best free games available to play in this quarantine

This has the advantage of being able to keep the original games intact, without the need to adapt their controls. These appear in the form of virtual buttons. The downside is that the screen of the game itself is not very large, although this helps to hide the pixels a bit.

Games

The list of games is varied and includes all kinds of retro gems, some that you may have played in their day and others that you may have overlooked more, but all of them of quality and that work perfectly in their jump to the latest Android smartphones baking. This is the complete list, sorted alphabetically:

  • Abracadaball
  • Alien Quarantine
  • Avalanche Snowboarding
  • Block Breaker Deluxe 2
  • Block Breaker 3 Unlimited
  • Brain Challenge 3: Think Again!
  • Bubble bash 2
  • Cannon rats
  • Date or ditch 2
  • Diamond rush
  • Detective Ridley and the Mysterious Enigma
  • Fashion Icon
  • Gangstar 2: Kings of LA
  • Hero of sparta

The Gameloft Classics application was originally launched almost a year ago, and in our tests we highlighted its biggest drawback: it was necessary to insert coins every five minutes to continue playing. All that system has been removed from this new version, which does not show ads or in-app purchases. If you want to spend the whole afternoon playing Fashion Icon, nothing prevents you.

More games The closest thing there is to advertising is the “More Games” button that shows other Gameloft games on Google Play.

So, if you want to revisit or discover classic games of yesteryear, this is one of the best times to do it. Some of these games have had reissues on Android, such as NOVA, although the version from almost a decade ago is totally different, and whether it is better or worse will depend on your tastes more than anything.
