Top 5 Android Games 2016
2016 has been a colorful year for interesting smartphone games, as well as apps in other genres. Since the high configuration smartphones have become much easier to grab in 2016, high end gaming has become more of a common thing. And also, a lot of high-adrenaline or brainstorming games have been released in this year. Augmented reality have reached a different level with Pokemon Go, and there are newer additions to popular titles like the Asphalt Xtreme. For gaming in the Android ecosystem, 2016 has been a very colorful year. And if you are looking for a top 5 Android games 2016 list, here’s that.
Minecraft Pocket Edition
Not every awesome game need to have a superior graphics quality. For example, Minecraft has never exactly been your super realistic 4K resolution game, at least that’s what it appears to bare eyes. But once you indulge yourself within the gameplay, you get lost within. In Minecraft people get to mine for stuff, build new structures, find and defeat bad people, make new friends (even foes) etc. Basically, Minecraft lets you do pretty much anything you want to, and the Minecraft Pocket Edition is the Android version of the full-fledged Minecraft game.
The Pokemon Go hype is pretty much gone now. But back in July 2016, Pokemon Go was the most hyped smartphone game of 2016 and the download count has surpassed all previous records of smartphone game download. Servers have crashed, Niantic had to come up with newer policies to block spoofing and tricking in the game – a lot has happened. However, Pokemon Go is now extending to different regions as servers are being added to regions. Let the hype be gone, but once you play this game for the first time you certainly get hooked for a pretty long time.
Crashlands is a new release in 2016 and despite being a brand new game to the smartphone gaming industry, it has become one of the top gaming titles in 2016. In the gameplay, the player takes the role of an intergalactic trucker whose truck crashes on an alien planet and the player’s responsibility is to figure things out and find a way back to safety. The character develops through time and the game duration is quite long before gamer reaches the end.
Asphalt Xtreme: Offroad Racing
Asphalt Xtreme has been out only for a couple weeks and caused a hype among the motor racing game enthusiasts. Unlike the previous versions of Asphalt where the gamer drives supercars on a buttery-smooth city road scenario, the Xtreme title takes the exact opposite way. Gamer needs to drive heavy duty SUVs through water, sand and ditches and there’s no hard and fast rules, either. Just get to the finish line first!
Riptide GP Renegade
Riptide GP2 was vastly popular, and now Riptide GP: Renegade hits the Google Play Store this year. Like the previous version, this newer title is a paid game as well. There are loads of adrenaline-rushing and death-defying stunts one would love in superior graphics quality. The vessels are now much improved both in terms of performance and aesthetics, all it takes is a flagship smartphone to spectate the gorgeousness of this game.
Not all the titles mentioned here are free, but these games have been able to uplift anyone’s mood in 2016 so far.
