Must Play Android Games Of All Time
There was a time when Apple used to have all of the gaming goodness, whereas android considered as an arcade gaming platform. But time has changed and now it has become one of the major gaming platforms as you can see that many AAA games found their way to Android including many console ports and PC ports. Such a day is not far when we will see many Android games releasing parallel to their console versions.
Today I am going to talk about the best android games you can play right now. This list includes mostly android games though I also include games that you can play using PPSSPP emulator on your android device and also admit that this list is somewhat action oriented but never mind and give it. A short because gaming goodness is waiting ahead.
1. Cut The Rope:
A long time ago zeptolab presented us with this simple yet fun series featuring a cute looking protagonist. Even being a casual game it still appeals to many advanced players as sometimes it is quite challenging to finish some levels with three stars.

Bad For — Gamers that do not like casual games.
Honorable mentions — Angry Birds, Bad Piggies and Where are my water.
2. Plants vs. Zombies:

Good For — Gamers who like tower defense games and strategy games.
Bad For — Gamers who are easily offended by tower defense games and also who do not like puzzle games.
3. Modern Combat 5:
Created by Gameloft keeping call of duty in mind. Modern combat features some explosive actions and is best in its genre, though it is nowhere like call of duty if I’m honest with you. The strength of modern combat lies within its multiplayer mode, but the single-player campaign is also fun. The bad thing is that this game requires a constant internet connection to play hence some players with the low-speed connection may face issues.
