15 best offline Android games


A lot of Android games depend on a mobile data connection. Whether it’s downloading stuff from the server like Clash of Clans, or using it for DRM protection like most Final Fantasy games, it seems like virtually every game is asking you to be within close proximity of a web connection just to make the game run. Not everyone has that luxury so here are ten of the best offline Android games that don’t require a connection to play. If none of these are floating your boat, Google Play has a list for offline games for your convenience. Of course, if we missed your favorite offline Android games, tell us about them in the comments!


15 best offline Android gamesBADLAND

[Price: Free with in-app purchases]
BADLAND is first on our list and this is about as great of a time waster as you can get. It’s a 2D runner where you must progress forward faster than the screen or else you’ll be consumed and lose. The game features silhouetted graphics and colorful backdrops which look fantastic. There is also a local multiplayer, a sizable single player with over 100 levels, and there is even a level creation tool to let you make your own levels that you can share. There’s a lot here and it’s worth a play. It’s one of the better offline Android games.

15 best offline Android gamesBeamdog Collection

[Price: $9.99 each]
Beamdog has a small collection of classic PC games ported to Android. Their ports include Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, and Icewind Dale. They’re all huge RPGs that take dozens of hours to complete. There are also no in-app purchases. That means it’s just you and the game. These games are also fairly complex, so we recommend playing the games on larger phones and tablets if possible. Otherwise things get a little cramped. They’re a bit expensive, but they’re great offline Android games also.

15 best offline Android gamesSeveral Final Fantasy games

[Price: Varies]
Square Enix has been back and forth when it comes to online DRM checking, but you can play a few Final Fantasy games offline provided that you’ve logged into them at least once with an Internet connection. Final Fantasy games offer more than 20 hours of game play per title along with deep story lines, various types of character development, and more. They’re not the most exciting games, but fans of the series generally play them for their stories. The cost varies per game, but they’re all pretty decent.

The muted, smokey colors and unique mechanics give this a wholly different feel from similar games in the genre. It’s free to play with $1.99 being to unlock extra goodies like saving, stats, and more. The developers have another infinite runner game called PinOut that can also be played offline.
