In this guide we share a list of the best offline Android games you can play without WiFi. Fun games you can enjoy on your Pixel, Galaxy or tablet without an internet connection. Whether you’re on vacation, enjoying the wild outdoors, or on a daily subway commute underground, these games don’t need WiFi.
These days most games need some sort of data connection to work. That’s how Fortnite loads your skins and finds players. Or, how Clash of Clans opens your village. So while most games need internet, there are other addicting games that work just fine offline.
In 2014 Google added an Offline Games section to the Google Play Store. Giving users a place to find free or paid games that work without Wifi. We dug through them all and found the best offline Android games for you. Games you’ll want to download and have ready for when you disconnect.
Additionally, these games are great for your kids that don’t have a data plan, or for tablet users. Most Android tablets don’t have a SIM card like your phone and only work on WiFi. And if you’re in the car for a road trip, you or your kid’s tablet can still play these games.
Keep in mind that some of the games on our list need internet access at least once. Requiring WiFi to install the game and download any additional game files or connect to Google Play. Do this once, and you’re all set. Just open the game after it installs to make sure it doesn’t need anything further.

Fallout Shelter is like SimBuilder type games where you build a village and make everyone happy. Only this takes place in an underground bunker after the world was destroyed. It's similar to the popular console game but obviously different in many ways. It runs 24/7, even without WiFi, and you'll get notifications when stuff happens all the time.
