In Google Play the games number in the thousands. There is something for all tastes and colors, but not all are worthy of being named as “the best”. To make your search easier, from the Xataka Android team we have searched the best titlesWhether they are this year or not, free or paid, online or offline, they are worth playing and offer hours of fun.
This is a live list, that is, that will be updated as new games come out or we find new titles that deserve the podium. In that sense, the comments section is at your entire disposal so that you can send us your recommendations.
We start with the latest SuperCell release, Brawl Stars. The game reached the global market at the end of 2018 and today it has been placed in the top of the most popular games on Google Play, and it is not for hands. Maintaining the aesthetics of the studio’s titles, Brawl Stars offers us different game modes, all online, three versus three in the MOBA style or a 10-player Battle Royale.
In addition, it allows you to play with friends and create teams, so fun is guaranteed. It has no game limit, although you can only win 200 coins in one session. Once these are obtained, you will have to wait two hours to recover 20, and so on. It is completely free and available on Google Play.
The Escapists 2: Pocket Breakout
The new title of the Team 17 team, creators of Worms, also arrived at the beginning of the year and since its launch it has garnered rave reviews. The Escapist 2 worth 7.99 euros, but worth it from start to finish For its gameplay, for the enormous amount of options it offers to escape from prison and for its touches of absurd humor, everything is said.
Following the line of the franchise, in The Escapists 2 you will play a prisoner who has to escape from prison. The grace is that you can do it following the strategy you wantWhether it’s digging a tunnel, jumping over walls, or fighting guards. In addition, it has a multiplayer mode so that your friends can help you escape. A highly recommended title.
The Escapist 2: Pocket Breakout
Another of the titles that have reached Google Play in 2019 has been Alien: Blackout, a strategy game in which you will play Amanda Ripley to guide four engineers along the ship. Without being killed by the xenomorph, preferably. We were able to taste the title when it was released and it left us with a very good taste in our mouths.
Alien: Blackout is priced at 5.49 euros on Google Play, but if you are a fan of the Alien saga and you want to know what happens between “Alien: the Eighth Passenger” and “Aliens: The Return” is a recommended purchase. Of course, it is essential to play with headphones, the experience improves a lot.
Oddmar was the winner of the Apple Design Awards and it was released on Android last January. It stands out for being a side-scrolling platformer with a very Rayman-inspired aesthetic, a really neat level design, and four playable worlds. In total, 24 levels at your entire disposal.
Although it is free to download, you can only play the first world. To unlock the full game you will have to pay 4.19 euros. It is one of those games for which it is worth assuming the cost nothing more than to enjoy the animations, the settings and the characters.
Classic in capital letters. Lemmings, developed by Sad Puppy, was released 27 years ago for the Commodo Amiga and has now been remastered and adapted to mobile platforms. It is a puzzle game in which you will have to guide the funny Lemmings back to their home.
To do this, you must open the safest and fastest route, either by digging blocks, building stairs, etc., all without some dying on the journey. It is completely free and is financed with micropayments. This is a full-blown nostalgia shot for everyone who grew up playing the consoles of yesteryear.
We can’t stop talking about PUBG Mobile, the mobile version of Player Unknown’s Battleground. Tencent’s Battle Royale has been on Android for a while now and has become one of the most popular titles in all of Google Play, accumulating more than 100 million downloads.
As you may already know, you will have to jump out of a plane on a huge island and survive by scavenging for weapons and equipment throughout the buildings. The games last around half an hour and the last one standing wins, something not too easy. PUBG Mobile can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
And if we talk about PUBG Mobile we have to talk, inevitably, about Fortnite, the fashion game. Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite has conquered the computers and mobiles of millions of users, something that is largely due to the fact that it is free and multiplatform. That is, the account you use on Android is the same as the one on PC, so the experience and achievements are shared.
Unlike all the games on this list, Fortnite cannot be downloaded from Google PlayInstead, you will have to go to the Epic Games website and download the APK file. To install it, remember that you will have to activate the unknown sources from the settings of your mobile.

Alto’s Adventure and Odyssey
Another work of art turned into a video game is the Alto saga. An ideal casual title to disconnect and play a couple of quick games that stands out, mainly, for the level design and soundtrack. Again, say that it is highly recommended to play with headphones.
The mechanics of the title couldn’t be simpler. You slide down a mountain and you simply have to press the screen to make Alto jump, spin or access the upper areas. They are two very fun games that you can download for free from Google Play.
Monument Valley 1 and 2
Monumental Valley 1 and 2 are two games that every Android user should play at least once in their life, without exception. They have been developed by ustwo games and their bet is original, fun, with the right level of difficulty and frankly relaxing. Like Alto’s Odyssey, the headphone experience is unmatched.
The objective is to take the princess from one point to another of the level playing with perspective, switches and levers that you will find scattered around each map. At the beginning it is easy, but the last levels will take you a long time. Monument Valley 1 you have it for 2.99 euros; Monument Valley 2 for 5.49 euros.
Monument valley 2
It doesn’t have the best graphics, it doesn’t have the best soundtrack, but we can guarantee you hours and hours of play and more than one laugh. BitLife is a life simulator born on iOS and arrived at the beginning of the year on Android. Since its launch it has garnered rave reviews, and for good reason.
In BitLite we will have to create a life and make a huge number of decisions which, as you will see, are very similar to those we take in our day to day. Everything you do will have a direct impact on the rest of the story. In our case, the record for the shortest life was have currently our colleague Samuel Fernández, who died at the age of four. If you want to try, you can download it for free from Google Play.
Old School RuneScape
Old School RuneScape was released exactly 6 years ago for PC and Mac OS and arrived on Android at the end of 2018. It is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Jagex in which you will have to manage your character, complete missions and survive on a huge and coarse map.
Like any role-playing game, its asset is the wide range of learning branches that you can access (23 in total) and the huge number of simultaneous players competing against you (60,000 as of this writing). In addition, it is the community itself that decides the development, so you can participate and try to fix, put or remove things from the game. You can download it for free from Google Play.
Old School Runescape
Although Niantic’s title is a few years old, Pokémon GO is more alive than ever with a huge player base and tons of creatures to capture. Saying something about Pokémon GO that is not known is already complicated, but it should be noted that it is the only one on the list that will get you out to play.
Update after update has managed to fill up with game modes such as raids, battles between players and syncro-adventure, which allows you to open eggs and count the steps even with the application closed. A highly recommended game for anyone regardless of age.
The Room saga
If there are known games on Android, The Room saga takes the cake. There are four titles in total, all paid, but worth every penny. Surely you have heard of it, but in summary we can say that they are 3D puzzle games (not easy) that you will have to solve to know the story.
Getting them all will cost you 13.36 euros, but if you divide them by the enormous amount of hours that you are going to spend playing them, it is very worthwhile. They all have five-star ratings and the comments are beyond positive, so check them out.
Saga The Room
