I can’t say that shooters and action games are the best ones for playing on your smartphone. Nevertheless, these games are considered to be the standard for other games in terms of graphics, gameplay, etc. If you look through the Google Play Market you’ll find a lot of such games. In order not to download and to get disappointed, I’ve decided to share with you the best action games for Android available at Google Play Market right now.
First release of the Dead Space was issued four years ago and the game immediately gained a lot of popularity among the gamers. Official Android application was released in 2011 and finally I’ve decided to try it.
The game is divided into two independent parts and takes place at the space station which is infected with some virus that turns the inhabitants of the station into mutants. As Isaac you’ll have to get rid of all the enemies and to solve the secret of the station. The game is notable for its scary mutants and I don’t think you’ll find something like that in other shooters.
The game is really enthralling. Another good thing about it is that the game format is pretty suitable for a smartphone. The quality of the game details is high, no problems with gameplay. The level of graphics quality is very close to that on the Playstation 3 or Xbox360.
Control elements are placed on the left side of the display, on the right you can change angle of rotation. In order to fight with the enemies you meet at the station you may either fire with a fire ball by clicking on a screen or with plasma by sliding on a screen.
The story of the game won’t let you to get bored. And I think that Dead Space will meet your expectations.
The game is made in the genre of 3D shooter where you play for a person whose friends were killed by the soldiers of some cruel dictator. The level of graphics of the game will please your eye. The main hero has a great choice of weapon which he may use at any moment. To fill up your weapon stock you can in a shop where you’ll find a wide range of weapon of all kinds. Apart from that, you can buy there additional armor, health and different bonuses.
The only thing I didn’t like about this game is that it develops only in one location and the main hero practically doesn’t move – only shoots back and hides behind the walls. The number of terrorists grows with every level, and they shoot at you not only with machine guns, but also with grenade launchers. And the only thing you do is shoot back and run from wall to wall. So actually, gameplay levels the quality of graphics.
Grand Theft Auto III
To celebrate its 10th birthday GTA was released for Android devices. The style of the game remains the same – you should be fully prepared for anything. You’re betrayed and a huge price is set for your head. And that’s not your only problem as there police and FBI tracing you.
• Huge Liberty City that lives its own life regardless what you’re doing;
• Great choice of weapon: baseball bat, machine guns, rifles, sniper rifles, flamethrower, grenades, Molotov cocktails, etc.;
• New models of cars;
• Fully optimized controls for sensor devices;
• Hours-long gameplay.
Galaxy on Fire 2
Galaxy on Fire 2 is the continuation of one of the best iPhone games in 2009. Previously the game was available only for Apple devices and Sony Ericsson Xperia. But now all Android users can enjoy this great game.
The main hero of the game is a famous space traveler Keith T. Maxwell, who declared a war on the aliens. You’re offered 10 hours of adventures and trips in hyper space and through tonnels-wormholes in the farthest corners of the galaxy. At any moment you may protect the cargo from the space pirates, transport valuable things from one space system into another, look for dangerous space criminals or lead the mercenaries in order to restore alien technologies.
The game is simply the best in terms of quality among the games of such sci-fi genre. Just look at the facts: gigantic galaxy that consists of more than 20 solar systems and beautifully made planets waits for your reclamation. To do that you may use more than 30 fully customized spaceships, and more than 100 space stations are ready to shelter a tired traveler or warrior.
So it’s up to you: whether to destroy all that with a group of mercenaries or fight these mercenaries as a peace maker. Freedom of choice is the main principle of Galaxy on Fire 2. Apart from great graphics, all plot stories are dubbed.
Zombie Field HD
Unknown virus turned the population of Creeds brother and sister’s city into zombies, and they are the only ones to stop the spreading of the disease. Former killers know how to manage guns and their own fear. And those are very good skills in the city stuffed with zombies. Previously they killed for money, now they kill to stay alive.
At the beginning of the game you can choose who to play for, either for a brother or for a sister. The gameplay is to move to different locations, collecting different kinds of weapons, and kill the hordes of zombies.
The game may boast about great 3D graphics, each location is detailed and has different scenery. The music suits to the gameplay, adding some fear when it is needed. The controls are made very intuitive. Surely the best zombie shooter at the moment.
