Do you ever find yourself looking at the Play Store for some new games, but have no idea where to start?

Well, here are my picks for the top 5 Android games, in no particular order. These will be a wide variety of games from lots of different categories and some of these will be available on iOS as well, but the focus here is Android games. Let’s get right on with the list.

#5: Mr Bullet

Mr Bullet

Coming in at number five is Mr Bullet. Mr Bullet is a puzzle game where you are Mr Bullet and you have to defeat the various stages of enemies by, for example, ricocheting a bullet off a wall to hit them, or shooting a button to activate some TNT. It’s very addictive and they’re constantly adding new levels, as well as new game modes like Grenades, Hostages and Friendly Fire. You earn cash for each level and you can use those to get a random suit (skin) for your character, It’s rated 4.1 stars on Google Play, and you can check it out here.

#4: PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator

PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator

At number four we have PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator. Tuber Simulator is an idle game where you play as a YouTuber making videos, earning views to purchase items to improve your setup and gaining brains to improve your YouTuber’s skills. If you have watched the YouTuber’s videos you might have seen the ad, and despite it being around since 2016, I still believe it’s a great game as it provides a retro experience and keeps you coming back, whilst giving you a great excuse to waste time. Furthermore, you can add your friends and send them gifts, and once you progress far enough, you can create and join so-called ‘networks’ in which you gain special benefits like view boosts. If you want to add me and get gifts (I’m pretty active) then you can add me via the username TechLifeYT. It’s rated 4.8 stars on Google Play, and you can check it out here.

#3: Stranger Things: The Game

Stranger Things: The Game

Stranger Things: The Game is an adventure game in which you control the Stranger Things crew on various missions, picking up more characters along the way, defeating a variety of dungeons and bosses and solving difficult puzzles too. Be warned, it’s very addictive- I found myself playing for at least half an hour at a time, and you’ll never get bored of it. I seriously recommend it for long-haul flights or trips, as it’s a great time killer. There are two modes of gameplay- normal and hard- and I would definitely recommend going with the normal mode to start with so that you get familiar with the various characters and their abilities. It’s rated 4.6 stars on Google Play, and you can check it out here.

#2: Archero

Archero

Archero is an action game in which you play as an archer, working your way through levels of enemies and bosses and gradually upgrading your gear. The catch, however, is that you only fire when you stand still, and if you die, you go back to the start. It’s very difficult, but very fun and addictive too. It’s rated 4.4 stars on Google Play, and you can check it out here.

#1: Mario Kart Tour

Mario Kart Tour

And last but in no way least, we have Mario Kart Tour. The game finally comes to mobile after years of console exclusivity, and you can download it for free right now. Working through multi-race cups, you compete against other players as your favourite Mario characters, unlocking more by earning rubies, which you can use to get a random hero, cart or glider or purchasing them with coins in the shop. They’re adding new cups all the time, and a multiplayer option is on its way, meaning you can race against your friends. I really recommend you check this one out. It’s rated 4.6 stars on Google Play and already has over 10 million downloads with only being out for a few days. You can check it out here.

Well, that was the list. Definitely make sure you go and check some of these out, and if you enjoyed them then make sure to let me know below in the comments!
