To find a decent Android game you have to wade through a sea of shit that is Play Store. So share lesser known Android games that you liked. I got:
Battleheart Legacy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFZYCumpvCA
An older single player RPG. Great combat and controls, interesting abilities and character builds, beautiful art, runs well on anything, too. The story is a bit short, but there is some endgame in the form of endless wave arena mode where you can get the best gear and try to set records.
League of Berserk - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGtrK7BS8bc
A real time multiplayer dueling game where you basically click on abilities and potions and level your guy. Very repetitive, I found it fun until I hit later levels (25ish?), then it gets extremely grindy. Surprisingly alright community (chat), quite a few players online, though in most duels you fight against bots that use real player profiles. Somewhat p2w but if you spend a lot of time playing it matters less.
Day R - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXf4zbih0Ps
Top-down survival..RPG?. A little similar to Fallout1/2 but more simplistic. You travel from town to town and gather resources, craft items and try not to die. There is an online mode where apparently you can trade and complete quests with other players. Quite repetitive and difficult, I found only the early game fun. No paid items except the insignificant starter premium pack for few dollars.
CSR2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9aYphit-JA
Online drag racing with ridiculously good and smooth graphics and lots of real car models. Beware - it's a heavily pay to win game. The only reason I mention it because you can get a modded .apk with unlimited stuff (that was some time ago though). I did that for a week and it was really fun using all the fancy stuff that actually costs thousands of dollars. Then I got banned but it was worth it, I suggest doing that if it's even possible anymore.
Now I'm looking for a multiplayer non mmorpg game I could waste my pathetic life on, any suggestions?

I have spent hours of my life playing Battleheart Legacy. I can assure you, it is not worth it. The first part of the game is dead easy, but after you complete every level, you still have to grind an insane amount if you want to beat the final boss in less than an hour. There are some elements of the game that are clearly incomplete, such as the quests for the cartel or for the guard. I hate it so much, and I hate myself for wasting my time playing it. The original Battleheart is much better.

Get some basic gear that nets you most gold, do some quickest most profitable dungeons and you're set..not much of a grind. Then look up a video on how the boss fight is done and repeat it. If it's still too hard, do some arena and get faceroll gear. The first BH is a completely different game, no comparison.

 No.41217

The best games you can play on android is emulating real games that aren't crappy pay to win time wasters.

That said I really enjoy the android game called Soul Knight. It is really fun and most of the payed content is just cosmetics or removing ads (has ads because they have to get payed somehow, but they are technically optional).

 No.41231

>>41213
It shouldn't take more than 50 hours of grinding, but I assure you it does. I already have the best equipment money can buy, the only better equipment you can get is by chance in the arena, which is where I've been doing most of my grinding. As for videos on how to beat the boss, the best method I have seen is the crit build, but that takes a lot of luck. Have you actually beaten the final boss? I would love to know if you have, because I find it hard to believe.

 No.41245

>>41231
You're way overreacting. It's probably not even 5 hours and it's not even grindy.
I forgot everything, all I remember is that I ran https://youtu.be/FhS6jcOZs94 and Holy Ninja Variant (wiki) builds, then some mage build. I just slightly tweaked them for the boss. You likely fucked up the first playthrough by picking wrong stats and skills or something. The first time, I went for Bard's Generalist asap, got the minimum stats to learn every single skill and put the rest into str or dex. I'd reinstall and look but I don't have enough space on the phone.

Smartphones do everything much worse or in a less convenient way than each separate gadget the functions of which they are supposed to "combine".
I rarely leave the house but when i do I take a tablet for reading/watching stuff, an mp3-player for music, and a cellphone for communication. Would never exchange that setup for a dumb """smart"""phone with smaller screen, slower processor, less memory, a single battery to support all those functions at the same time, and which to top things off costs more than all those gadgets together.
Seriously, smartphones are just as dumb and redundant as "all-in-one unit" computers. At least until they become much more powerful in terms of hardware and at the same time more affordable.

I've been really enjoying Reigns, not hat obscure, but whatever.
It's a king "sim", you get an event and can answer yes and no, each answer decreases or increases your 4 stats and if they get too high or too low it's game over, say if your piety stat increases too much then the Pope's army takes over and it's game over. Too low and pagans take over.

A we compare a smartphone and a tablet from the same generation and with relatively similar innards (processor, memory, etc), the smartphone is A LOT more expensive.

Buttons are convenient, though my headphones have them so I don't even have to reach the phone in my pocket. Low-end players don't have superior sound processing, their chips are the same general-purpose boards. You never know for sure that your player doesn't have backdoors or simply vulnerabilities in firmware or USB connection, unless hardware and code are both open and you carefully research them. The rest applies to cheap phones on Wi-Fi with GPS simply turned off.

 No.43958

>-no GPS transmitting your every move
You can turn the GPS off or even remove it compleatly, and it doen't effect the actually use at all.
In-fact it can be used to provide maps of local music related locations such a record shops or small out of the way venues with live music.
>-no backdoors
Actually if it is built in china then it has a backdoor too.
>costs absolutely nothing compared to average shitphone
Cheap smartphones cost literally the same as mp3 players. What the fuck are you talking about dude?
My first smartphone was literally $10 bucks.
>-rugged
Just as there are fragile mp3 players and rugged mp3 players, there are also fragile phones and rugged phones.
>-lightweight
Smartphones are also lightweight, with maybe the expedition being those excessively large ones or the ones with extended batteries
>-tiny
There are tiny phones, since they are able to do many things you can do more yet carry less, Like for example play games (hint hint)
> can fix it yourself if it breaks
Same can be said about smartphones.
>-buttons let you navigate songs through a pocket or without looking at it
You can actually do the same without physical buttons, and honestly it is more convenient to use headphones that have this feature anyway, which not all mp3 players support, including many not supporting Bluetooth which is a very nice feature once you get the hang of it.
>superior sound processing
This is littrally wrong unless you buy one of the very costly specialist FLAC player with highly specialized hardware.
Normal mp3 players can't even play lossless formats and have objectively worse sound processing ability. You don't know what the hell you are talking about on this one.
>not a theft target
1.that is not true
2.cheap phones are the same level of theft target as a mp3 player.
>-no monthly bill
There is no requirement to pay a monthly bill to make use of a smartphone as a convenent media device, that is capable of not just plugging into a computer to get content, but also able to use wifi too.
>no malware
1. there is malware that can effect mp3 players
2. it is rarely a problem and I have personally never had malware, even when I was forced to use a smartphone as my primary computing device. Much of the same anti-malware programs that one uses on a desktop can be used on a smartphone if it is a concern.
>doesn't tell the world "hi I'm a phonehaving normalfaggot"
That is literally just you projecting your mental baggage on a object rather then anything to do with it's utility.

Here is something for you though (and making things actually relevant to the thread), MP3 players are totally shit for games.
Most can't even run doom.
With a smartphone you can play all your mp3. You can also play video formats like mp4. And you can play highquality lossless formats like wav and FLAC which you can't on a mp3 player.
You can watch music videos, look up lyics, download more music on the fly, etc.
AND on the same device you have available to you more games then any one person could ever play. Not just games for the OS platform of the phone, but also emulated games of nearly everything up to the early 2000s.
Just face the facts. Smartphones are far superior to obsolete mp3 players. They are worse for music and can't even game.

what battle royale games you play if any? I tried PUBG mobile and Freefire, I prefer the latter as it runs better, looks better(because it doesn't aim for realism) and plays better(due to shorter matches and better touch controls) than PUBG.
PUBG has these long ass matches on a huge map and conrols don't work well with a mobile game.

>MP3 players are totally shit for games.
Why would you use something designed for music to play games?
I listen to music via an mp3player while playing games (or reading) via a tablet. Since both processes are on different devices, their batteries last longer than a smartphone's when it handles everything at the same time.
Not the one you were talking to btw.

If you want to carry two things instead of one wouldn't it make far more sense to just carry a portable external battery charger if battery life is the reason for carrying two devices. Like I said, the smartphone not just does what the mp3 player does, but does it better in many ways.

>>43970
I think I might try that game. It looks like it could be a fun little game to kill some time with, and the game-play looks different from what I have been playing lately.
Oddly I have been playing a lot of pinball on my smartphone, despite not usually being into the genera. Just sort of in the mood for it I guess.

I gave it a shot just because it's pretty much a clone from one of my all times favorite arcade game Nightmare in the Dark. It's kinda alright but the lack of a proper controller kills it for me. Games like this that are trying to be actual video-games but in reduced form to make up for lack of proper way to control something with swipes on a touch screen really doesn't work for me. That's why I think games like Flappy Bird are brilliant in that way, being engaging and fun while fully aware how shitty gaming through touch screen really is.

That said, if you're used to play fairly heavy gameplay stuff on touch screen I'm sure there's some fun to be had with Candies n Curses, it's not at all bad.

Forgot to mention the game I'm playing. It's called 毛塊. Just a couple of months ago all games by this company simply vanished from Google Play, no idea why. Their twitter and other social media accounts are all up but there are no updates for years. No idea what happened.
I think this one is really fun and the premise is quite odd which I like. You're a hairball rolling on an infinite corridor filled with more hair you pick up as you roll. Like I said you can't get it from the Google Play anymore but you can easily find it online.

>it's pretty much a clone from one of my all times favorite arcade game Nightmare in the Dark.
I love arcade games, no wonder it clicked instantly with me. I think smartphones are a perfect platform for this instant-fun kind of genre except for controls, it's too bad not many games copy arcade structure and instead go for mission based one or even worse add castle building or some shit too much money.
>Games like this that are trying to be actual video-games but in reduced form to make up for lack of proper way to control something with swipes on a touch screen really doesn't work for me
I found this one to be really good for touch controls because it's fairly simple due to arcade roots, you don't have to attack, just jump up/down and change directions, shooting gallery games also work fairly well and they too have roots in arcades. The only genre I can't tolerate on touch screen is not even fps as you might think, but roguelikes, they aren't very good with mouse, but with touchscreen they are even worse, even if not being realtime you are not really at disadvantage. Maybe it's just me.

I like this one game called Cell Lab. You design tiny multicellular organisms, like how each individual cell divides and into what type of cell. Its pretty complex, but its fun to just make 2-3 cell creatures and try and optimize them. There is a over-time evolution mode to it that's kind of interesting.

I will name few android games that are actually great time passes and were made with some quality instead of that freemium focused shit.


>Limbo

A gloomy, depressive yet well made game

>NOVA 1&2

If you want halo inspired classic phone shooter fps

>Plants vs Zombies 1&2

Unusual defense game but real fun

>Dead Space

It came out in 2011 and felt really cool on android back then, graphics and gameplay were nice. Kinda like pc ver but mobile.

>Wild Blood

features unreal engine and feels like these oldschool 3rd person fighting games.

Grave Defense HD - made by russian developers a truly unique tower defense game. The story line and style are cheesy but in a good way.

>Galaxy On Fire 2 HD + all expansions. This will provide you a shit ton of space adventures this rpg simulator


>Anomaly series

Where in tower defence you usually play defender, here you play as tactical intruder

Asphalt 5 - The last original asphalt game.. If u manage to run

Fast Five - looks awesome but then again if you somehow manage to make it run on a phone first

>Operation Sheep Defense -

good game with these nostalgic flash player animations

>Inotia (series)

Didnt try but heard its good

>Orna

A pixelated 8bit mmo which I hears is good

Road to Valor: World War II

It's like a combination of Clash Royale and Company of Heroes 2. The unit detail, the historical accuracy, and the graphics are top notch stuff. Each 4 faction has 3 doctrines of different uses and "powers" as well as various effects. I used to play a lot of COH2 and this game feels like a genuine substitute for it.

It's not exactly an hidden gem, but there's a rather good riichi mahjong client in English named Mahjong Soul. I remember a thread on mahjong years ago. It has a gacha, but you can ignore it completely as it's only cosmetic. There's been a merging of global and Japanese server and a large influx of new players after a v-tuber promo tournament and some pro players starting to use it, so it might not be as newbie friendly as it was a year ago, but it's still more accessible than tenhou due to it being in English and the more casual player base.
