Games are always a great mood changer and can help keep a boring day fun.
Unfortunately, some Android games rely on the internet.
This is because most of these games are free and for the developers to make money from their effort, they limit these games to function online where they can display ads.
The problem is, not every gamer has a constant connection to the internet and sometimes the connection can be so bad that gaming becomes almost impossible.
Personally, I’ve encountered unstable internet connections which make gaming almost impossible. And really, it’s quite frustrating.
In this post, I outline some of the best offline games for Android. I’ve tried a bunch of offline games over the years and – though, they are nothing like online games – I was really impressed as most of the games on this list came with impressive graphics and tough plays.

2. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers needs no introduction. The game is literally addictive and promises so much fun. It’s quite challenging and the graphic design is one of the best I’ve seen so far in offline games for Android.
For the records, Subway Surfers has over 1 billion downloads from Playstore and over 21 million 5-star reviews. It is an editor’s top pick and rated as the top free offline Android game on Playstore.
There are lots of exciting characters that you’ll need to unlock as you win more coins; keys to your health. And of course, you must run fast enough to escape from grumpy inspector and his dog.
However, not too fast so as not to collide with oncoming trains. Pick the magnet to attract coins wherever you are, the super boots to jump higher, the jetpack to fly above, the boosters for a head start, and the mystery box for your secret rewards.
Subway Surfers is a pack of adrenaline filled with so much fun. It comes with lots of in-app purchase but free to play. And as long as you can dodge oncoming trains and pickup coins, you’ll have no cause to purchase anything except you want to.

If you must play any offline first person shooter game on Android apart from Noblemen: 1896, it definitely should be Modern Combat 5. It has been around for a long time.
