Android has been hit by freemium games like a dump truck. It made it possible for apps and games to be given away for free, and users could pay money later if they wanted to. This has been the most common model. Freemium games make more money than pay-once games because people download them more often and pay for them more often. But there are many people who are willing to pay more for a bigger experience. If you’re one of these people, we hope you enjoy the Android games that don’t cost money.
Bloons TD 6
Bloons TD 6 is a great mobile tower defence game. It costs $4.99 once, and if you want, you can buy power-ups through in-app purchases, but that’s not necessary. The game has 37 levels that are all different levels of hard, as well as several challenge modes. You get a lot of monkey towers, and each one has three ways to improve it. There are also achievements, a lot of challenges, and the ability to play without an internet connection. The Kingdom Rush series is also made by Ironhide Studios, and it’s a good tower defence game with a single price tag. You can buy extra things in the game, but you don’t have to. You can beat the game just fine without any of it.
One of the few good rhythm games for mobile is Cytus II. It looks pretty, has an anime theme, and is easy to play. Taps and swipes in time with the music are used to control the game. You can play a campaign mode with a short story. The free version has a good number of songs. You can buy more songs from within the app. They will always be DLC. The game’s maker, Rayark, has made a number of good rhythm games with similar ways to pay. Cytus II is their biggest game right now, and it’s also one of the best Android games that doesn’t cost money. If you have Google Play Pass, this one is also free.
The Escapists 1 and 2
The Escapists is a puzzle-based escape game that also has elements of a simulation. You play the part of a prisoner. You do your prison work and live like everyone else, but you also sneak out. Players have different ways to get out of each prison level, and there is a good crafting system that lets them make tools to help them. Both games in the series are pretty good, but the second one is bigger and has more levels and ways to escape. If you have Google Play Pass, you can also get both games through Google Play Pass.
Evoland 1 and 2
The Evoland games are all different from each other. They don’t fit into any one genre. Each game has different ways to play, like RPGs, trading card games, fighters, adventure games, puzzles, and many more. It also has graphics that range from modern to old-fashioned and back again. They are tributes to the games we played as kids. They also play well, with the exception of a few rare bugs. The first one costs $0.99, while the second one costs $7.99. Neither of them lets you buy things inside the app. OK Golf, an above-average arcade golf game that is also a paid mobile game, was made by the same company.
Levelhead is one of the best two or three mobile platform games by a long shot. It has very smooth gameplay, a lot of campaign levels, tools for speedrunners, and a great level editor. It also works with games on different platforms, so if you want to, you can sync your game across platforms. You play through levels to teach a robot how to deliver packages, and then you make your own levels so that other people can play them. You can also get levels by downloading them. This game should be very popular, but it’s not. It’s one of the best mobile games I’ve played in the last few years. It’s also free if you use Google Play Pass. Crashlands, another great mobile game for RPG and open-world fans that doesn’t cost money, is made by the same company.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition is the version of one of the most popular games of all time that can be played on a phone. You can pretty much do whatever you want in the game, as it has no rules. In survival mode, there are things that can kill you, but in creative mode, you can do whatever you want without any trouble. It’s not quite as good as the console or PC versions, but updates have been coming out to make it close. As of E3, 2016, you can also use this to play on servers that aren’t available on mobile. Technically, this one does have things you can buy inside the app. But they are only for skins and don’t change the game in any way.
Mini Metro is a fun puzzle game for kids. The players have to build a city’s transportation system. You put the pieces together and decide what to do. The game lets you play with 18 real cities, has daily challenges, is easy to play, and more. You also get three ways to play: an endless mode, a quick play mode, and an extreme mode. It’s a fun little puzzle sim game that doesn’t cost too much. The graphics aren’t very good. Some people might like it, but others might not. It also has a mode for people who can’t see colours and a mode for use at night. On Google Play Pass, this game is also free.
Monument Valley 1 and 2
Monument Valley is one of the most well-known puzzle games for mobile phones. Its puzzles in the style of M.C. Escher made people happy and were fun. The story is pretty simple, but most people play for the beautiful puzzles. Both of these games are pretty short, but that’s about the only thing that’s ever been said against them. You can move level pieces around to make new paths that seem to come out of nowhere. The first game costs $3.99 and has some DLC that you can choose to buy or not. The second game costs $4.99, and we expect that it will get more content in the future as well. Yes, this one is also part of the Google Play Pass.
Sky: Children of the Light
Thatgamecompany is known for its quirky games like Flower and Journey. It also has a free-to-play mobile game called Sky: Children of the Light, which is a lot like Journey in that it requires players to work together. So, yes, this is a multiplayer game, but since there is no other way to talk besides emojis, both kids and adults can enjoy it. What’s cool about this game is that you can explore the dreamlike world with your friends. This is where it really shines.
The graphics are detailed, but they can be hard to understand. It is an open-world game like an MMO, with events and a story that changes over time. The best part is that you don’t have to spend money on this title. Even if you want to play with other people, you can play the whole game for free. It’s basically a game with a calm journey, pretty graphics, and a mysterious story. If you like games like this, you should definitely check it out.
