Right now, the Google Play Store includes over 3.6 million apps available for download. As of March 2022, according to research group Statista, almost 97% of all apps were available for free download. Clearly, there’s never been a better time for mobile users in search of a free app—and especially a free game. Today, many mobile game developers rely on microtransactions in order to make money from their titles. Downloading is free, but to advance in a game meaningfully, a player will eventually need to fork over a few dollars (at least). Though many accept the pay-to-play model, it has also been frustrating for gamers in search of a truly free and worthwhile title. We have both for you, what follows is 2022’a Top Free Game Round-Up.
Are you in the market for a free Android game that delivers quality gameplay and graphics, along with an acceptable free-to-play model? Let’s take a closer look at six of the top options available in 2022.
One of the biggest hits this year is the Global Poker platform. The free poker online model has attracted thousands of players across the US, which includes extensive tournament options, weekly bonuses, and even guides for newcomers to learn the basics. This makes it ideal for beginners and seasoned players alike.
Additionally, the ability to play against other poker buffs from around the world adds a social element to the game. The varied playing pool presents a challenge for players of all stripes, introducing them to new strategies and approaches to the game.
This action role-playing game was first released for Android back in 2020. Since then, it’s become a top free option for its open-world format and anime-style graphics. Developers miHoYo created an unforgettable cast of characters.
While players will eventually need to engage with microtransactions to unlock certain weapons and other features, there’s tons to chew on in the meantime. From its story to its combat sequences, there’s something for everyone in Genshin Impact.
Sky: Children of the Light
Most free games are designed for individual gaming with social elements tied in. However, Sky: Children of the Light includes a dream-like world that multiple players can investigate in small groups. Even more interesting is the fact that they can only communicate through emojis.
If you’re looking for an open world that provides endless visual stimulation and a mysterious storyline, then look no further. Best of all, Sky is a free game that lets players advance to the very end without shelling out a single coin.
When Pokémon GO burst onto the scene in 2016, it introduced millions of gamers to their first quality AR gaming experience. The title got people outdoors, exploring their neighborhood or a local park. Six years later, there’s still plenty to explore in the game. While the game hasn’t changed, there hasn’t been much to improve.
And unlike most other mega mobile hits, Pokémon GO hasn’t strayed far from its free-to-play platform. Aside from purchasing Ultra Balls to make their catches more secure, the title’s in-game currency leaves more wiggle room for those who don’t want to link their banking information.
Good Pizza, Great Pizza
The rise of casual games has helped boost the number of titles available in the Google Play store. Not all deliver interesting stories, which is fine for gamers just looking to pass the time. Good Pizza, Great Pizza is one of these titles, which lets players create their own pizza parlor.
While it sounds simple, possibly even boring, developers at TapBlaze include more than a few interesting challenges. One might be a strange order from a customer, while another might be an unexpected expense that challenges gamers to balance their (in-game) checkbooks. Some might even include laughing at a customer’s bad joke to keep spirits up in the restaurant.
