Top Five Action Games for Android

Smartphones are one of the most used devices for gaming today after consoles beating the conventional gaming done on PCs. And as a fun fact, Gaming helps reduce stress, enhance coordination and increase your memory. Though not an ideal way of spending time according to our parents, playing games on a smartphone can help you get that perfect escape from the real world in no time. Today, we have picked up a bunch of Action Games for you to try. The list has been selected on the basis of graphics, gameplay, size (memory) and interface. The list is in no order of preference.

Also, all the games are free to download though some of them might come with in-app purchases.

Modern Combat 5
Starting the list, not with this game would have been unfair. This game from Gameloft is the best First Person Shooter game right now on PlayStore. Don’t get fooled by the download size (46.28 MB) displayed on the PlayStore, the game is pretty heavy and you will have to download more once you run the game for the first time. Modern Combat 5 comes with a perfect blend of Graphics and Gameplay.

The Gameplay on this game is super easy and one can get used to it in a matter of minutes. The User-Interface is neat and organised as well and occasional guide let you explore different menus time to time. However, one downside is that you have to download each level separately apart from regular updates available on PlayStore. So we would recommend you not play this game on Mobile Data. Also, you need internet connection all the time as your progress gets saved on Google Play Games.

Nova 3 Freedom Edition
If you don’t mind an even bigger size on memory and absolutely want beastly graphics, Nova 3 is the best you can get. This game is all about graphics and we would recommend a mid to high range processor for this game. We ran the game on OnePlus 3 so it went on as smooth as it could run. The Gameplay is also fairly simple and there is no rocket science there. One thing at which this game surely disappoints is the lack of customised interface.

The game is also battery hungry so we would advise you to sit near a power point or carry a power bank on the go. Overall, if you are looking for a Sci-Fi Warfare Graphic heavy game, Nova 3 is the best choice right now on PlayStore. The game weighs around 1.3 GB right now.

Dead Trigger 2
Well, this was a close call. We were confused between Dead Trigger 2 and Unkilled, both of them being from MADFINGER Games. If Zombie killing is what you like, both of these games can serve you till the brim.

Surprisingly, Unkilled is light on weight and a little better on Graphics but it lags behind in terms of Gameplay. Both the games are a lot similar as they have been created by the same brand. You just aim at Zombies to shoot. No Multiple controls, No confusing layouts, Nothing. But the main reason we chose Dead Trigger 2 over Unkilled is the sheer simplicity and fun Gameplay. You are more likely to get addicted to Dead Trigger 2 than Unkilled.

While Dead Trigger 2 weighs around 460 MB on PlayStore, Unkilled comes in at about 369 MB. Both the games are also easy on battery so that’s a plus point as well.

Doodle Army 2: Mini Militia
Though not much popular now but this game had to make it to the list. Doodle Army 2 or popularly known as Mini Militia was once on everybody’s mind apart from being on their smartphones. The game has no next level graphics or gameplay but the huge amount of user base and multiplayer was what made this game viral. Also, the game is pretty light on memory so you don’t need a flagship smartphone to run the game.

The interface is simple with minimum to no animations. You can change your avatar and customise the arena. We noticed that this game did heat up our device quite a bit even though it is a lot lighter than other heavy games like Nova 3 or Modern Combat 5. One reason behind this might be the amount of internet it uses in the background. If you have a bunch of friends around you, Mini-Militia is the game which can make that boring get together into crazy warfare team-ups.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
This game by Warne Bros. has the best Graphics of them all. Unlike the other games listed above, Injustice is a fighting game with various characters. The game is pretty heavy at 1.2 GB and is also heavy on the battery. The Gameplay is quite smooth and realistic.

Further, unlike most of the games, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a tough bet even on the first go. The games demand extreme finger tapping in certain situations and is not an easy game to win for beginners. You can win fights and up the level with various customizations at each level. Not only this, you can also take your skills online with Online Multiplayer menu. One downside about this game is that it takes a lot of time to load at the first instance.

Special Mention: Sniper 3D Assassin Gun Shooter & Shadow Fight 2
If you want a quick game to test your aiming skills, Sniper 3D is the perfect choice for you. The game is snappy to navigate between the menus and comes with adequate graphics for the game of this size. The Gameplay is also pretty easy and it also doesn’t stress out both memory and battery even after longer playing sessions.

Shadow Fight 2 is the perfect fight game for the budget to mid-range processors. There is no nuisance in the interface with easy to understand instructions. Graphics are decent as well and Gameplay is no exception as well. However, one problem which we faced a lot of times was the confusion regarding the characters while fighting. Being a shadow fight game, it sometimes gets difficult to spot your character. We might be nit picking here but overall the game is worth a try.
