These days, mobile games specially android games account for a substantial portion of the gaming population. These ten games received the most downloads, ranging from Among us to Subway Surfers.
There has never been a time when video games have been more popular than currently 2021. There is bound to be a wealth of amazing stuff to consume no matter where players choose to play. Even though there is a lot of excitement surrounding the PS5 and Xbox Series X, mobile gaming is a big part of why games have such a prominent place in modern culture.
There are a huge number of titles and experiences to choose from, whether you’re using an iPhone or an Android device. Some of these games, in particular, have exploded into massive hits with millions upon millions of downloads. And not all of them are linked to other IPs that have previously been successful in other ways.
1. Among Us
Okay, clearly shows: everyone has heard of Among Us. This social deception game, which was released with minimal fanfare in 2018, has suddenly gained a lot of traction owing to Twitch streamers. The game casts up to ten players in the roles of adorable space blobs, and it’s frustrating, chaotic, and hilarious.
As the party works to fulfil duties and repairs around the ship, one or more players posing as allies are tracking them down. It’s a lot of fun to figure out who the imposter is before they kill everyone and win the game. When played with a group of close friends, the game becomes much better (and worse).

Match-three puzzle games have captivated middle-aged moms, teenagers, and anyone trying to pass the time by playing games.

The casual puzzle craze Candy Crush Saga was one of the first major successes in the free-to-play genre. Despite the fact that the gameplay is simple and repetitive, the addictiveness of the concept remains strong. Candy Crush Saga’s convenience is unrivalled, making it ideal for quick gaming sessions.

5. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers is yet another endless runner that shows the old adage true: if it ain’t busted, don’t change it. Combine Temple Run’s gameplay with a dash of Jet Set Radio’s attitude, and you’ve got yourself a big hit.
Kiloo and SYBO Games, both based in Denmark, collaborated on Subway Surfers, an endless runner mobile game. It’s available on Android, iOS, Kindle, and Windows Phone, and it’s powered by the Unity game engine. During the gameplay, players take on the role of young graffiti artists who, after being caught “spraying” a metro railway, run through the railroad tracks to avoid the inspector and his tiny dog.
Runner takes gold coins, power-ups and other items on their way while avoiding collisions with trains and other objects, and can also jump over the trains and surf with floverboards and evade capture until the character crashes into an obstacle, is captured by the inspector, or get hit by a train, where the match is over. Weekly Hunts and other special events can result in in-game rewards and characters.
Subway Surfers doesn’t break any new ground, but it does execute the tried-and-true concept with competence and delicacy. It even spawned a YouTube animated series!
