The 10 Best Offline Android Games For Everyone
1. Crossy Road
The game is relatively simple –– well, is it really? Basically, you will guide your animal character to cross the streets and streams.

Crossy Road has over 150 collectible characters, supports offline, and can be played on your Android TV too! The game is a family-friendly game that is perfect for all ages.
I call Minecraft the virtual legos –– create a world of your own and live in it. You can play with what you have created either in survival or creative mode. If you have been playing this game on its computer version, you will notice that the mobile app is not as immersive and big. However, the developers have bridged the gap by adding in things such as Redstone for a more personalized building.
Unfortunately, the game is not free to download with in-app purchases. But once you have purchased the game, you can play it in offline mode. The extra purchases are just for player skins.

The mechanics of building your own world, living in it, and surviving are what make this game interesting. The game offers an enormous map that is randomly generated every time your start a game, so you can be sure that it’s never the same world twice!
Get ready to test your skills with over 300 enemies to take down and 15 challenging bosses to conquer. Take your character to the next level by mining blocks and crafting items. With Terraria, you will never run out of fun things to do.

4. Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition
Ever played Street Fighter on a game console when you were a kid? Thankfully it’s available to download on your mobile!

Probably the most famous hedgehog, Sonic, takes you on an endless running experience. However, this game is not to be taken lightly –– it puts you on the edge of your seat, for real!
Sonic Dash is an immersive and classic platform where Sonic and his fellow comrades, Knuckles and Tails, dash their way through a series of maps. Each map has a sequence of obstacles that Dash and his friends need to pass through.

Soccer or football –– whatever you may want to call it, Tiki Taka Soccer is the game for these sports fans. The game offers almost all the aspects of the sport but with a twist: in a retro-styled interface.
Users can create their own teams, hire their own staff, and even buy free-agent players. And best of all? You get to compete with the most premier league teams in Europe. The game is simple yet still gives you the feeling of playing on a grass field with a big crowd cheering you on.
Similarly, Tiki Taka World Soccer plays league USA team. Definitely perfect for soccer/football fans across the globe!
8. Alto’s Odyssey
One of the newest games that require no internet connection, Alto’s Odyssey, offers an adventure-filled experience. You can ski the slopes, jump through obstacles, and collect coins along the way.
Make sure that you collect as many coins as you can–this will unlock customization elements in the game shop. Also, you will have colorful and nice-looking graphics. Since it’s an endless running game, you move forward on your own.
It only consists of simple controls: jumping and performing tricks mid-air. Finally, the game has in-app purchases that will remove ads or buy more coins to unlock the elements available in the game shop.
9. Hidden Folks
Let’s test that 20/20 vision, shall we? This game will definitely do just that. If you are a fan of Where’s Wally/Waldo, then this game will be a hit for you. And an added difficulty: every picture moves!
Every time you touch your screen, the game rewards you with an extra level of interaction with impressive animation. For example, if you touch the bushes their leaves move, birds fly off to the sky, and so much more!
Aside from the movement, there are things that make noises such as the buzzing of bees or the crackle of dry leaves. And every time you find one of the hidden objects, you’re rewarded with a “ping.”
10. Friday the 13th
Of course, no list is complete without the horror-puzzle game, Friday the 13th. Besides its thrill factor, the game offers a ton of surprises that’ll keep you looking over your shoulder.
The mechanics of the game are simple: players must slaughter all the people without being captured by the cops while avoiding land mines, traps, and (strangely) rotary telephones.
This game is definitely age-restricted. We don’t recommend this one to kids as it’s just too gruesome. Thankfully, this game can be played offline –– as long as you’re okay with the blood and gore.
