There are plenty of fun and exciting games available for Android, and they come in all genres from FPS to RPG and everything in between. While pretty much everyone has heard of some of the bigger games such as Angry Birds, Temple Run, and Minecraft, there are tons of fun indie games for Android you have probably never even heard of, and in this article I will list five of the more entertaining Android indie games for you to try out.
Superbrothers Sword and Sworcery EP
A rather unique adventure game, Superbrothers Sword and Sworcery EP takes place in a mythical fantasy realm and has you switching between two worlds; the real world and a dream world. You switch between the two worlds by letting your character fall asleep.
The gameplay is very well done and is exciting and compelling. The controls are very smooth and responsive, which comes as a delightful surprise after playing so many other Android games that have sluggish controls.
Superbrothers Sword and Sworcery EP costs just $4.99 and is available on the Google Play Store.
World of Goo
If you’re wanting a quirky and fun puzzle game then World of Goo is for you.
In World of Goo, you have to guide little balls of goo, which are aptly called “Goo Balls”, to the end of each level. To do this you have to use the Goo Balls to build bridges, towers, and other constructions to reach a pipe at the end that will suck up the remaining Goo Balls.
World of Goo is also a great game if you want a challenge as the later levels can be tough to complete.
You can purchase World of Goo for $4.99 from the Google Play Store.
Organ Trail: Director’s Cut
If you’ve ever played the classic game ‘Oregon Trail’ then you’ll have an idea of what this game is. Organ Trail: Director’s Cut takes Oregon trail and turns it into a zombie game.
In Organ Trail: Director’s Cut you have to travel west in a station wagon with 4 friends, all the while scavenging for supplies, fighting off zombies and thugs, and trying your best to survive.
Organ Trail: Director’s Cut is available on the Google Play Store for $2.99.
Cogs is a puzzle game that is both simple and complex; it is simple in design, but the puzzles can get extremely complex.
Cogs has you building machines by sliding tiles and solving the puzzle. There are 50 different puzzles in Cogs and 3 different gameplay modes, so it can last you for quite a while. Cogs also comes with a leaderboard to let you compete with people from all over the world.
You can buy Cogs for $2.99 from the Google Play Store.
Zen Bound 2
Yet another great puzzle game, Zen Bound 2 is a slow-paced and relaxing puzzle game, however, that doesn’t mean the puzzles can’t be challenging.
Zen Bound 2 has tons of puzzles for you to solve and you can take as much time as you need to figure them out, all while listening to beautiful mellow-sounding music. If you’re wanting a good game to help you relax, then Zen Bound 2 is perfect.
You can purchase Zen Bound 2 for $2.99 from the Google Play Store.
