Being definitely the most popular mobile operating system, Android offers us thousands and thousands of different games and applications. Therefore, one question pops up, especially when talking about games – how to, and is it actually possible to hack Android games?
It could be useful for players in many different ways – imagine being able to increase the current score, or increase the number of coins that you have? Or even “buy” in-app-purchases without actually paying.
So, let’s make this clear – hacking IS possible, but with the constant updates coming from Android, not all the methods can work on all the system versions. Basically, any kind of hacking is usually done by using a third party app, but the difference is that some apps will require your Android to be rooted.
However, many people try to evade rooting their phones, since this opens up different features which are not allowed to a standard user. This can be beneficial, but without proper knowledge, it might cause errors on your device. It’s something similar to jail-breaking.
Please note that when downloading games and apps from websites other than Play Store, you might need to enable the option “Unknown sources”. You can usually find it in “Security”, under “Settings”.

SB Game Hacker
This seems to be the simplest app for hacking Android games on a rooted device. It allows you to change the number of lives, coins, gems and so on, but it also allows you to speed up time, which might be needed in some games. So, let say that you want to hack coins, for example.
- Open Game Hacker and minimize it.
- Now open the game that you want to hack.
- Start the level or whatever is needed, so that your coins amount is shown on screen.
- Open Game Hacker again.
- Put the number of coins in the input box, and tap “search”.
- Now increase or decrease the number of coins you have, by buying something / selling something.
- Open Game Hacker again, enter the current amount of coins and tap search.
- If everything is done properly, you will be able to enter the desired amount of coins in the modification box.
- Again, increase or decrease the number of coins by buying or selling something.
- Immediately after that, you will see the desired amount of coins appear.
Long story short, you need to input the coins value 2 times, because Game Hacker needs to be sure that the value it is changing is actually “coins”, and not some other system stuff that might have the same value at the moment.
Another great app to cheat or hack almost ANY Android game! The hacking process is very similar to the previous app, so let’s check it out!
- Download APK, install and start the app.
- Choose the game that you want to hack, and start it.
- Take note at how much coins you have (again, let’s use coins as an example).
- Hit your hot-key and select Input Number.
- Input the current amount of coins, and press OK.
- Now increase or decrease the number of coins, and press hot-key again.
- Tap the “!” sign, then tap on “coins” and enter your desired amount.
- Tap on “Modify”.
- If you tap the Lock button, the chosen value will be locked, meaning that you will have infinite money.
If you are a hardcore gamer, you might want to buy a good gaming smartphone. You can order Razer Phone 2 directly from Amazon, for $500. It offers 8GB of RAM, Wireless Charging, 64GB storage with micro-SD Slot up to 2TB and many more great features!
In The End
Hacking Android games can be useful for any gamer, whether you are playing some complex RPG games, or Candy Crush Saga.
If you don’t have much experience in coding, or using more complex Android functions, if you are actually a “classic” user, it might not be wise to root your phone. However, if on the other hand, you want to root it, feel free to follow our guide on rooting.
Hacking on a rooted and non-rooted phone is different, as you can see. Depending on what seems to suit you best, download some of these apps and try it out. As mentioned above, depending on your device and Android version, some apps might not work.
Also, please note that hacking can be tricky if you want to hack online games, such as Clash of Clans. The problem is that most of the values (gold, coins, gems) are actually saved on their servers, instead of being saved on your device.
