With 2018 halfway through to the finish, it is a good time to do hindsight and list what have been the best games that have come to the Android platform so far this year. From expected titles that we had been waiting for months to oddities that have surprised us pleasantly, the harvest of titles in the last six months has been commendable. Here we list the best ones.
You have to start with the jewel in the crown (at least until Fortnite arrives at Android and says otherwise). The Bluehole game allied with the great Asian developer Tencent to take out not one, but two titles based on the Battle Royale par excellence, although only one of them has been distributed internationally. After its arrival in iOS, at the beginning of February, it reached our platform.
Another big one preceded by a great success on PC. The game of survival with dinosaurs of by means has arrived recently at Android with a spectacularly similar port to the original one, although like exchange currency we have some requirements of hardware superiors to the habitual thing. The best thing is that the Android version is freemium, unlike the original one.
In this case, perhaps we are not before a success due to the intrinsic qualities of the game, but the reflection of the unprecedented success that is living the well-known group of J-Pop BTS, where I take the charts of half the world. The so-called ‘BTSArmy’ (so their fans are called) crave a musical video game starring their idols. Hence, each new version is expected as May water, in addition to having expanded the family of Superstar titles with other productions for Android.
Being a Harry Potter video game is in itself a claim big enough to be one of the biggest hits of the year, but it is that Hogwarts Mystery knows how to seduce fans by proposing to embody a student of the well-known school for magicians. After choosing one of the magic schools we will have to attend class, get along with our classmates and, in the process, solve a strange mystery related to our lineage.
There are never enough Dragon Ball games, and if we get something of the caliber of Dragon Ball Legends because San Toriyama caught us confessed. This game collects the best visual level of the latest console deliveries developed by Dimps and season it with a turn-based control system and tactile gestures that feel great given the format. Great graphics, a fun game system and surprises like the appearance of a new character created for the occasion are enough credentials to not incarnate for the umpteenth time to Goku and company.
Another prodigal son that has arrived this year. Supercell already dresses in gold and diamonds thanks to Clash of Clans and Clash Royale, and replicate the success for the third time in an uncertain, especially by presenting a title that moves away from the lore created for the previous titles. This time we are facing a mini MOBA that stands out for the same as its predecessors: a game system easy to play and very complicated to master.
The Sims Mobile
It was EA’s turn to renew his ‘Sim’ experience on Android, as he was still dragging the previous 2011 title for Android. This new revamped version has little to envy the canonical saga, offering a huge degree of personalization for our characters and their homes, a myriad of tasks and entertainment scattered around our neighborhood and the possibility of aging and our hujos continue with the lineage. Like life itself.
Not all are going to be reputable blockbusters. Man or Vampire will surely be the jewel of the year in terms of the subgenre of the SRPGs for various reasons. Beyond its intoxicating graphics and foggy ambiance, we have a very funny turn-based strategy game. We can recruit up to 50 members, each of whom can become a vampire permanently, but with that will stop leveling even if he gains the gift of immortality. Better try it.
Lacking bread, good clones are. As we have said, the Android version of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is at the forefront of its genre, but while Fortnite decides to make the jump in Android, clones come out under the stones. The problem is that these begin to reach levels of quality nothing negligible. Creative Destruction is the best clone we have today. Let’s take it while we can like the good placebo that it is.
Less is more and cannot be all the complex epic games of mechanical baroque. In Helix Jump, we will have to make a ball descend an endless spiral of platforms moving the axis itself vertically. And that’s it. That alone has earned the VOODOO studio to become one of the successes of the year.
Everything that bears the name Pokemon is predestined to sound. After its passage through Nintendo Switch as a freemium game comes this new invention of The Pokemon Company to Android devices. Their graphical graphs are only the letter of presentation of a formula different from the one of the canonical titles: We must choose our team of three creatures and in each mission they will move of automatic form in real time, being our unique assignment the one of choosing what attack will perform. And above we can create an adorable Pokémon farm.
HBO is tearing its clothes in its attempt to find a phenomenon that recovers the witness of Game of Thrones. Undoubtedly, Westworld is the one that is closest to get it, so its official video game for Android has been well received even on its own merits beyond resorting to the license. Here we will obviously have to manage our ‘theme park’ set in the wild west so that things do not get messed up.
You have to let off steam in any way, even if you’re beating up a poor trap doll. That is the main premise of Kick the Buddy, although as we play, the formula is stretched to absurd levels where we can make combos of destruction unlocking perverse gadgets. Sure to burn, explode, freeze, crush, tear and twist your toy colleague makes you feel better.

Trying to copy a formula of success does not mean that you are predestined to failure, much less. Mercs of Boom plays the XCOM strategy saga on all four sides, but based on the best, you get a playful wonder. There are turn-based battles in squared scenarios where we control a three-member squad, as well as the management of our base of operations where we can improve our troops and the equipment they carry.
The people of NEXON are experts in bringing us proposals within the scope of the JRPG. One of his latest productions is this Darkness Rises, whose production values could go through those of a great title for desktop consoles. Its spectacular graphics run through Unreal Engine 4, and its combat system in real time makes it possible to strike combos of different kinds to our enemies. Here the spectacularity prevails … and the repetition of contents until the satiety. But hey, you already knew what you were coming for.
