The capabilities of Android gaming has evolved and improved tremendously over the last few years.

Clash of Clans is an absolutely epic game that focuses on strategy and destroying your opponents. The premise is that you build a town, fill it will fighters who need training, and then battle countless online enemies. They’ll also come and attack your town too, so you’ll need to make sure you’re constantly upgrading your army. You can also create allies and join a clan to battle other clans. It’s one of the most popular multiplayer games ever released.
Exploding kittens is based on the very popular card game which sees you facing off against players, desperately hoping not to find exploding kittens as you pick up random cards. You can steal cards from players or use them to skip your turn. There’s a combination of luck and strategy involved and playing it online against other players is a lot of fun and a great way to kill some time.
Next up is Order & Chaos 2: Redemption. It’s a great MMORPG which involves you creating a character, assigning a class and race to it and then battling your way through the story to upgrade it. The offline mode is immersive and you’ll lose track of time as you work your way through it. Online boasts a lot of fun too, as you can do PvP modes or join friends or other players and work together. If you want an online RPG to play, then this should be at least tried.
Slither.io is incredibly addictive…seriously addictive. It builds on the classic game of snake, where you control a snake who gets bigger by eating things, trying to avoid the walls and your own body as you meander through the screen. Slither.io however takes a different approach. You are a snake (or worm, depending on your opinion) and you travel a cosmic backdrop eating glowing orbs. You can cross over your body and the aim is to grow as big as possible, hopefully by killing bigger snakes. Online will see you tying to climb the leaderboard against other players in real-time.
Last on this list is Worms 4. Worms is an absolute classic game which has stood the test of time. It’s incredibly simple; you control a team of worms, and you need to find weapons and kill the enemy team of worms over turned-based combat. It’s a lot of fun, doesn’t take itself too seriously and you’ll find yourself eagerly playing again and again as you battle on through the victories and defeats.
