As you advance in the “career” to unlock cars, they are becoming more powerful in order to get into a position to make it faster.
Pure car Games could not miss from this article, especially if they are free. Real Racing 3 especially impresses by the graphics and the actual selection of cars and tracks. For example, you can climb behind the wheel of official Porsche, Lamborghini, Dodge, Bugatti and Audi cars, and you can try out your skills on circuits that have become legendary in the world of motorsports, such as Spa-Francorchamps, Silverstone, Laguna Seca or Hockenheim. However, to avoid long waiting times for repairing cars or buy new ones faster and stronger you have to pay real money and this limits somehow the enjoyable game experience.

As the name implies, the game requires you to cut various fruits that appear in the landscape in a short time.

You have 10 vehicles, from classic cars to trucks and tanks, and in the process you have to collect coins in order to improve their performance. The objective is to go through the 11 levels of the game that will carry on country roads from the desert to the Arctic ice to finally reach the moon!
I could not write this article about popular Android games without mentioning Angry Birds, probably the first successful game for Android. With a simple and intuitive graphics, the game throws you into a world where you have to kill pigs using a slingshot to catapult birds. Sure, as you get to higher levels you will encounter various birds and obstacles, and if you get bored you can try many other games in the Angry Birds series, of which we mention here only Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Star Wars or Angry Birds Friends.
The subway is my preferred ride, so it is not surprising to me, as the other 50 million users liked Subway Surfers. In this popular Android game you aim to run the metro network in various cities of the world (including Beijing) to earn coins to improve skills and, especially, to escape the pursuit of an inspector and his dog that will give you permanent headaches. Are you ready for adventure?
FIFA Soccer Games and Football Manager Handheld type are quite costly, which is why Top Eleven has earned a good reputation because it is free Android game. Even if doesn’t excel in graphics, Top Eleven Football Manager is a complex game, you have to take care of your own team: doing exercises, setting strategies, upgraded stadium and managing budgets. But perhaps the main advantage is that you play against real players in various competitions that mimic the Champions League, a national championship and cup.
Trivial as it sounds to cut a rope, it has proved a popular game. In this game version you will travel to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, the Stone Age and you can be a pirate on a ship, but your goal remains the same: to feed two monsters with sweets.
It is not surprising that the most popular Android games are either simple and intuitive, either consern car reces or are linked in some way to soccer. There are many other popular games for Android and the best that you can find are in the Google Play Store, but many of the best games are paid ones, this is why they don’t enjoy a large a number of downloads. As we can see, the budget issue is quite important, and free Android games win the world nowadays.
