If you’re like me and frequently on the go, you might find yourself in situations with no Internet from time to time. In trying moments like these, it’s always nice to have something to help you kill time. The problem here is, most apps and games these days require a WiFi or mobile data connection just to function, so you’re pretty well screwed.
There are a few games out there that don’t have this requirement, however. You should give them a look so life won’t suck next time you can’t get online. That said, here are 5 offline games for Android to help you out in such occasions.
No Wifi? No Problem! Here are 5 offline games for Android
Fail Hard, from Fingersoft, is a physics based stunt game suitable for players of all ages. Your main objective is to do launch yourself into the air and “fail” as hard as you can. The more damage you do to yourself, the more points you score. It’s free to play, with ads and in-app purchases.
Hungry Shark Evolution
Ubisoft Entertainment‘s Hungry Shark Evolution is one of my kids’ favorite games. It’s a side-to-side game where you play as the shark and have to eat fish, humans and boats as they get in your path. I grew up watching Jaws, so I’d be lying if I said I didn’t appreciate this title as much as my kids do. It’s free to play, with ads and in-app purchases, of course.
We did a 5-Minute Game Review of Stickman Skate Battle, and this is another game from the same developer. Djinnworks‘ Wingsuit Stickman is a game that sees player flying through courses, trying not to get destroyed by obstacles along the way. In a refreshing twist, all of Wingsuit Stickman’s levels are available to play for free. There are ads, however, and you can pay $2.99 to play all the levels without having to progress through the game. Again, you don’t have to pay if you play your way through it.
We’ll likely add this to our 5-Minute series in the near future, so stay tuned for that.
Colossatron, from Halfbrick Studios, is a top-down game where you assume the role of a robotic, Godzilla-like creature. Your mission: To destroy the planet, of course. As is the trend, you can play for free, but expect ads and in-app purchases.
Minecraft: Pocket Edition
Last up, we’ve got the mother of all offline games for Android – Minecraft Pocket Edition. Mojang‘s uber popular building game needs no introduction. The only paid game on this list, it’ll cost you $6.99 to install, however.
So, there you have it. Next time you’re in a waiting room, or anywhere else with no WiFi for that matter, you’ll have something to help kill time. You’re welcome.
