Best free games for Android 2017
With the rapid proliferation of Android phones and tablets, the number of platforms available for applications is skyrocketing.
This means more free android games. There is a lot of rubbish, but fortunately there is jewel rubbish.
We walk through the entire workload of the Android games that you should download to your phone.
So in time, this is the best free Android game we choose.
New this week: Super Stickman Golf 3
This third entry in the Super Stickman Golf series is perhaps feeling a bit too familiar, but the game remains the best side-on golf to be found on Android.
As ever, your little stickman is charged with smacking balls about courses comprising floating islands, laser-infested bases, and space stations. You set your direction and strength, hit the ball, and hope for the best – although this time you can also add spin.
Power-ups eventually enter the mix, providing opportunities to discover new ways to lower your scores. There are also two multiplayer modes – a deranged real-time race and a more sedate turn-based affair.
The free version of Super Stickman Golf 3 is a little limited regarding simultaneous multiplayer games and access to new courses, but a single IAP unlocks the premium game.
It’s rare even in mobile gaming – frequently full of innovation – to find a fresh take on puzzling, but Kerflux surprises with a simple, original concept that’s perfectly executed.
A crunchy chip-tune plays and you’re presented with three waveforms. The music dulls, as if you’re underwater, and that’s your signal to start manipulating two of the waveforms so they combine to form the third.
Achieving this goal is straightforward, and you can initially blaze through the game’s levels – even if a more leisurely pace is perhaps more rewarding. Before long, though, any complacency about Kerflux’s apparent ease evaporates when additional waves appear and you’re juggling four of them, trying to find the perfect combination that unlocks the next challenge.
Although you play games, few of them are about play itself, in the sense of experimenting with a set-up or situation and seeing what happens. , though, while presenting itself as a puzzle game, is more a minimalist sandbox where you immerse yourself in the delights of creating tiny solar systems.
The game is played by slingshotting celestial bodies around black holes. They then proceed to leave colored trails in their wake, while gravity does its thing. Soon, you have planets clustering together, wheeling around one or more black holes, creating minimalist modern art while they do so.
It’s all rather gorgeous and mesmerizing. The only snag is ads periodically wrecking the mood, although they can be eradicated with a single IAP.
Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire
Even now, years after Android proved itself as a major gaming platform, some developers seem to barely remember the touchscreen exists. If you reckon trudging through games with virtual D-pads and buttons can be a chore, Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire will be a little slice of magic.
You’re a wizard, defending a castle from interlopers attached to balloons. Cast spells by scribbling gestures to match symbols on the balloons and said flotation devices explode – much to the surprise of their owners, who then rapidly plummet towards a squishy end. Miss just one of them and your wizarding days are done.
From the off, this is a fresh, frantic survival game, especially when trying your hand at the super-fast extreme mode. Stick around for long enough and you’ll be able to utilize super spells too, turning enemies into frogs, and summoning a dragon. Which we all need to do on the odd Thursday here and there.
If you think the game itself is a bit too serious to say, the biggest car is a perfect antidote. This funny top racing car along the winding road, you have the barrel to blow up rival racers, driving like a madman.
Crush the same car enough for multiple races and in the store where you can buy it using coins to intimidate other road users.
It all felt a bit like some burnout, adding a run and putting a lot of filters through like a vision.
And a stupid commentator (“I have a 6-year-old reading!”) Regular roar is that you use your ice cream truck to smash an unfortunate exchange of debris, which makes stupid and appropriate entertainment explode at a small dose rate.
