When you have hundreds of games at your discretion, it is extremely difficult to pick and choose the best. Some games are outright undesirable and it is easy to spot them and exclude them from your list of favorites but given the vast inventory of Android games, it is not quite possible for anyone to have played all the games.
There are many games which are free and there are plenty that charge a nominal fee for download. It is not pragmatic to compare free games with paid games. Likewise, it would also be wrong to pull in3D games in the same bracket. Since most Android users know what kind of a 3D effect one gets on smart phones, here is a list of the 10 best Android games of 2013, excluding 3D games. To be fair to both free and paid games, the list is split into two sections with five catering to each of the two categories.
Best Free Android Games Of 2013
Real Racing 3
Real Racing 3 is perhaps the best in the trilogy. The quality of graphics, the responsiveness of the game and its controls, the sound and the unending challenges are a treat for anyone who has some need for speed. The game is free to play however there are some features that can be unlocked by paying a nominal fee. You can still enjoy the game to its fullest without paying a cent.
Bejeweled Blitz successfully takes the franchise forward. The different levels have become more challenging with 60 second timers, power-ups and integrated score comparison with your friends.
Temple Run 2
There is a popular saying in Hollywood that a sequel shouldn’t meddle with what made the prequel a success. Temple Run 2 sticks to this belief. It doesn’t change the premise of the first version and stays loyal to all the factors that made Temple Run (now Temple Run 1) such a runaway success. And, did you know you can now play Usain Bolt in the game as a bolting sprinter?
Galaxy on Fire 2 HD
The free version of the Galaxy on Fire 2 HD provides 10 hours of breathtaking fun. If you wish to continue playing then you can buy some in-app upgrades. 10 hours of shooting your way to glory while on an epic adventure in the galactic space is certainly a good enough reason for the game to be popular.
