Adventure games are among the most unique of any kind. It does not have any specific mechanisms. The game simply needs to take the player on an adventure of some kind. Thus, almost any game can be an adventure game as long as it has a story with which the player interacts. This made this list insanely difficult to write because there are so many contested games. We encourage our readers to leave a review with their favorite adventure games because honestly, 15 just doesn’t feel like enough. Here are some of the best adventure games for Android.
We would also like to remind a admin of 80 days (google apps). It is an exceptional game about racing around the world. It hasn’t been updated since 2019, and we’re trying to update the games on our lists. Still, it’s a great play if you don’t mind its age.
Best adventure games for Android
Alien: Isolation is a survival horror game about Ellen Ripley, Amanda Ripley’s daughter. Elaine boards a space station to find out what happened to her mother. The player explores the ship and uncovers secrets while hiding from a very persistent alien. The game revolves around that central plot for most of its run. The game may seem pricey, but it comes with seven DLCs on top of the base game, so there is plenty for players to do. The only downside is that it’s only compatible with recent phones, so check the Play Store description for a list of recommended devices.
Crashland is already among the best adventure games of 2016. You play as a space truck driver named Flux. The game begins when you collide with an alien planet. Your job is to retrieve your goods, build a base for yourself, fight bad guys, and save the world. It has a lot of game elements, including crafting, fighting and leveling up characters in RPG style, and you can even tame creatures to fight for your side. It is a deep game with a lot of content that you can play on both mobile and PC. The rating of 4.8 on Google Play is accurate. This one is also available on Google Play Pass if you use it.
Dead Cells is a Metroidvania game. For starters, this means that the entire map is interconnected and your goal is to explore it at your own risk. The game expects you to die, recover, learn from your mistakes, and keep going. There are bosses to fight, plenty of biomes to explore, and more. Non-linear progression allows players to move and play at their own pace. The game has three DLCs available for purchase that add more villains, more biomes, and more things to do.
Evoland 2 is easily one of the best adventure games in recent memory. It goes beyond genres by including a whole bunch of them. This includes 2D RPG, 3D fighter, trading card, hack-and-slash, and many more. The game basically progresses through different eras of gaming and each new mechanic also brings a new graphic style. The unique gameplay makes you guess and it is an overall enjoyable experience. We recommend playing with a physical console for best results. The game is always on sale, so you can probably get it for less than the asking price of $7.99.
Genshin Impact is one of the newest adventure games on the list. It is very similar to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Players get a big and open world to explore with a set of missions and tasks that they have to do. Players even get a glider to traverse greater distances. There’s also a gacha RPG element to this one, but you get most of the characters through missions rather than random summoning, so it adds a bit of flavor to the game. The looks are good, the controls are excellent, and you will be venturing through this for a long time.
Guardian Tales is a retro style adventure game with hack-and-slash gameplay mechanics and decent controls. Players roam around the world while solving puzzles and unraveling the game’s secrets. There are boss fights, a decent storyline, and a few fun little things to do. It is reminiscent of the old Zelda game but with the addition of some city-building mechanics. There are also social mechanisms like guilds so you can chat with friends as well. The game relies on some gacha mechanics, however, it can be a bit annoying for free players.
Monument Valley 1 and 2 are among the most popular puzzle adventure games available. You can move the levels because each level is a puzzle. Players are treated with optical illusions, a mysterious but fun story, and a consistent experience across two games. The first game includes the standard story with downloadable content ($1.99). The second game is currently $4.99. Our only disappointment is the length of the match. These games are a bit short. These games are still pretty cool, but those who don’t like short games might get frustrated with these games. It’s free via Google Play Pass, too.
Opus Games is a series of three adventure games that tell a dark but touching story. The first is Opus: The Day We Found Earth where you play a robot trying to save humanity by returning to Earth. Below is Whispers’ Scream: Introduction Leading to Opus: Rocket of Whispers. The last game tells the story of two people who survived the plague and want to build a rocket to perform a space burial. The whole series is really good and the execution is among the best we’ve seen. The games can be a little pricey, but you can start the games for free as a kind of demo before purchasing the full title.
Pokemon Go is one of the most ambitious adventure games out there. You actually go out into the real world and catch Pokemon, fight in gyms, loot Poke Stops, and so much more. The adventure element is more literal in this game than others. It requires you to go to places on your own and play the game in those locations. Players roam the open world and catch Pokemon, fight in gyms, fight among themselves, trade Pokemon, collect different items, and do all kinds of other things. The genre is also expanding and you can play similar games with Minecraft: Earth, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, and Jurassic World Alive.
Cube Escape is a series of mystery adventure games where you have to solve puzzles to find out what really happens. It is also known as “The Rusty Lake Story” and can be played online as a web game as well. The mechanics are fairly simple and each game makes you solve a variety of puzzles in order to advance in the story. They are technically escape games which means that you will solve puzzles most of the time. However, it is an excellent game series. We include it on this list because the Cube Escape series is completely free with almost no in-app purchases, making it among the best at this price. There are some outstanding games from the developers and they are really good.
Sky: Children of Light is a delightful adventure game with good graphics and an interesting story. There are seven worlds to explore and there is also a social component where you can talk to other players. Other game features include co-op gameplay, different character customizations, different experiences to keep things fresh, and an above average soundtrack. The social element is the main attraction here and the ability to explore the world with people is a nice touch.
SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom is a mobile port of the PlayStation 2 and Xbox game engine. This is quite mouthful, but fortunately this game is very good. You play as SpongeBob, Patrick and Sandy as you thwart Plankton and his scheme to take over the Bikini Bottom. It features a lot of buzz for fans of the show and the game’s mechanics aren’t half bad either. It also comes with console support, Google Play Game Services support, and more. It’s pricey, but there are no in-app purchases to get in the way of your quality time.
Square Enix can write one look at a story, and its storytelling is among the best of all the games. As such, most of their mobile games are excellent adventure games. Some examples include Adventures of Mana, Secret of Mana, Life is Strange, Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius, various Dragon Quest games, The World Ends With You, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, and many more. The above games span several genres, including RPG, puzzle, slice of life, and hack-and-slash. For some reason, we describe Square Enix’s library under a different developer name than anything else. We have the game associated with all the Final Fantasy games and the mobile port of the old RPG games. You may have to search for Tomb Raider and Life is Strange on Google Play. Anyway, Square Enix’s catalog doesn’t contain any really short games, so get ready to join in and play for a while.
WitchSpring is an adventure game that should be more popular than it is right now. You play as a witch who is also the ruler of an entire continent. Players explore the world, meet different characters, and do different things. It’s a surprisingly charming RPG from a much bigger developer in Korea than it is in other parts of the world. There are actually four games in this series. The first and the second tell the same story but from different points of view while the third and fourth games are standalone players that you can play without having to play the others. The games range from $1.99 to $4.99 each and they are all very good.
