The best Android games of 2016 (so far!)

Every month, there are heaps of new games released, some good and some bad. But what are the best Android games of 2016 so far?


Roll the Ball
Roll the Ball is one of the top games released this year. A slide puzzle game that requires you to use physics and engineering to win, it can keep you entertained for hours. And not only is it entertaining, but also intellectually stimulating, as the game requires planning and in turn, a decent amount of strategy. The aim of the game is to get the ball from the start to the ‘goal. To do so you must construct the tiles so the ball can move though a continuous tube. However, not all of the tiles can be moved, with some having to be screwed to the ‘wall’, and not all the tiles need moving, thus the game involves creativity.

Defence Zone 2
For Android users seeking a serious challenge, Defence Zone 2 HD is where you want to be. The game is a realistic tower-defence game, with a military theme. The game requires a lot of tactical nouse, and if you’ve never played similar games, then it can be quite difficult. Though if you’ve enjoyed tower-defence games in the past, you will certainly relish the challenge set by Defence Zone 2, what has been the dubbed the best tower defence game on Android.

Royal Vegas Casino
This is another fantastic app available on Android. The online casino has a whole host of games, ranging from poker, to blackjack, to slot machines, and even a roulette wheel. To get you started at Royal Vegas mobile Casino, there are a number of promotions on offer.

The Walking Dead
You’ve probably seen The Walking Dead, and if not then you’ve heard rave reviews. The apocalyptic series has provided an excellent RPG for Android. The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is mostly as a base-building game, requiring the player to construct the usual workshops, training grounds and farms to restore humanity. Away from the base, there are missions and raids. The missions find you exploring the surroundings through story-led combat, whilst the raids allow you to battle opponents online, fighting for reputation and supplies. The game is an involved one, and has proved to be a big hit with fans of the series.
