These are the best free Android games that are actually free. These days there’s no shortage of great free games, but they’re never really “free”. Instead, you have in-app purchases, tons of ads, or pay-to-win freemium titles. If you want to enjoy some games that truly don’t cost a cent, here are a few worth trying.
And while the best games always cost a few dollars, there’s still a big market for games that are completely free. Whether you just can’t afford it or don’t want to spend money, we’ll give you some entertaining options.
A lot of “free games” end up having so many in-app purchases or limits on the gameplay that you basically have to spend money. Those are what we’ll avoid. And while some of our games might have the occasional ad, that’s it. For the most part, these are all completely free Android games without in-app purchases.
A great example is Clash of Clans or Clash Royale. They’re amazing games that are completely free to play. You don’t have to spend any money playing them, and some don’t, but most likely almost everyone will end up spending at least $5. Additionally, a lot of racing games are free to play, but you’ll run out of gas and can’t race without waiting hours or spending a few bucks. The entire design of the game is around in-app purchases and making you think you need to buy something.
There’s nothing wrong with spending a few dollars on a game you’ll enjoy for months or years. Or even spending $1.99 to get rid of ads and support game developers. We’re not against spending money on quality apps and games. The problem though is the freemium market and pay to win is getting out of hand.
So while you’ll still find a few games with ads in our roundup below, that’s about it. Everything else is completely free to download, free to pay, and free to enjoy without 100 ads or in-app purchases. Download one today or drop us a comment below with your favorite game that doesn’t cost any money.
Geometry Dash Series
While you can find tons of games like Tic-Tac-Toe or Chess that are free, we're offering games that are a little more exciting.
The first game in our roundup is the entire Geometry Dash series or franchise of games. The company is offering multiple rhythm or action platformer style games that don't cost a cent. Some of the games are pretty short, but they're fun, exciting, and free.
Geometry Dash Meltdown is one of my personal favorites. Yes, you might see a few ads, but they're not intrusive, so it's no big deal.
