The market share of the UK population owning an Android device currently stands at just over 45%. Many are using these devices to play several different games. We have seen some wonderful creations, from traditional games transported to the smaller screens or brand new types of games that have caught the attention of non-gamers. Let’s explore some of the most popular Android games before looking at the past and future of gaming on the go.
Bingo and casino games
People are increasingly using their android devices to play a range of bingo and other casino games. These have had an audience long before the technological revolution but have certainly picked up new players as a result. For those that enjoy playing online bingo games, there are several ways you can do this. Buzz Bingo, for example, is accessible through your web browser or via an app downloadable from the Google Play Store.
Once launched, you will see more traditional bingo games alongside versions based on the most popular TV programmes. In addition, you can play online against anyone in the world. For casino gaming, it’s much the same process, with classic table games and even live variants all available, all enthusiastically received by Android users.
Console classics like PUBG and FIFA
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and various editions of the FIFA series have been amongst the most played lists on the PlayStation and Xbox range of consoles for a while now. Both have also seen popular editions arrive on the PlayStore as well. One reviewer described the mobile version of PUBG as a “remarkable technical achievement”. FIFA Mobile provides a great game of football and is the perfect way to right any wrongs after seeing your team lose on a Saturday afternoon.
Games with an ongoing popularity
We have seen several games that have had ongoing popularity over the last few years. One example of this is Clash of Clans. It was first released on Android in October 2013 and became an instant hit. Very quickly in 2013, it generated the most revenue across the whole of Google Play. Three spin-off games were then launched between 2016 and 2021, further enhancing its reputation as the go-to game for Android users.
Among Us is another game that’s had a huge impact. The online multiplayer game was launched in 2018 and is still being played a few years later. It features cross-platform play, something that has become a popular addition for many developers of Android games.
A non-stop revolution
Mobile games are now capable of producing stunning graphics and in-depth gaming experiences. Anyone with an internet connection can find themselves in a game of bingo, poker or blackjack with gamers in all corners of the world.
The future of gaming on Android devices is bound to get more exciting. Upcoming Android devices from Samsung, Nokia and Sony will launch with quicker processing and higher resolution screens. We should start seeing more developers that can launch mobile games capable of producing graphics that aren’t a million miles from the current generation of games consoles.
