The most addictive Android games are the ones you can pickup and play in seconds. They need to be fun and easy to play, yet hard to master. Or those that take hours and hours (or years) to complete. All of which are extremely fun but can also be frustrating and addictive. We have exactly that for you below.


Again, everyone has their own preference, and what may be extremely fun to others isn’t remotely appealing to someone else. As a result we’ve gathered some simple yet addictive games, some frustratingly hard ones, or casual games that users play for months and months on end.

There’s a little of something for everyone here. Whether you want to play for a few minutes waiting for the bus, or check on a village or plants multiple times a day and grow an empire. There are far too many excellent games to list, but below are 10, as well as some honorary mentions that are also worth checking out.

Crossy Roads

Our list of the 10 most addictive games are in no particular order, and all of them are worth trying if you're looking for something new. 

Crossy Roads is a spin-off and new generation of the popular game Frogger. It doesn't have cutting edge graphics, but it's extremely addicting, frustrating, and a joy to play. Users will play as a pixelated Chicken trying to cross roads, rivers, and other things.

It's fun, easy to play on a moments notice, and very addicting. The graphics are old school, and the concept is too. That said, it has Google Games cloud backup to save progress, works on Android TV, and is just an all around amusing game.
