Its no secret, Android gamers love their free games! One of the major advantages of having an Android device is the wide variety of free apps and games available on the Play Store. If you are looking for new games to try out on your device, Check out the top free Android games you can rock this week!
Based on the movie by the same name, Despicable Me for Android is published by Gameloft and you play as a minion. The game is basically a free runner, with you controlling one minion who wishes to become the minion of the year. The mechanics are simple, as you swipe left, right, up and down to maneuver the minion around obstacles and collect bananas. The game captures the humor associated with minions quite well and the animations are superbly done. The full 3D graphics are excellent for a free game and there is a whole lot of variety and bonus features to keep you occupied. Grab it for free below!
Developed by Crescent Moon Games, the developer behind Slingshot Racing, Redline Rush is no Most Wanted, but is still a pretty good free racing game. The visuals are nice (again, for free) and the driving mechanics are simple but serve the purpose. The game is worth playing during a quick break from work for some mindless fun. You have to avoid traffic and the police, all the while collecting coins and power ups. While the soundtrack is dull and uninspiring, for what its worth, the crash animations are nicely done!
From Dr. Parking, SUB Inc. has come up with Dr. Driving, a more ‘realistic’ driving game which is both fun and tough to play. The game is played from the driver seat view, and you have simple controls, where swiping the steering turns the car and you can press the on-screen accelerator and break pedals. The visuals are not bad at all, but the point of the game is to drive your car precisely, take proper turns and avoid collisions. If you run into a car or a wall, you lose (and get to see a scantily clad police woman).
While there are several other free games available on the Play Store this week, the three above are the best of the current lot. Come back again for next weeks top free Android games.
