We are in the middle of 2018 and here we bring you our selection with the best Android games of 2018. A list of the highest quality and highest level titles that can be found on Google Play.

All selected games have hit the Play Store this year. In total 25 games of various genres from RPGs, puzzles, graphic adventures, shooters or casual games. A list that we hope to continue increasing as new games arrive, among which we expect, for example, The Elder Scroll Blades, Brawl Stars or Command & Conquer.
