Gamers need their games on the go, so we’ve put together a list of the best free Android games without ads or in app purchases because who wants to spend a lot of money on a game?

I’m not much of a gamer and not an Android user either, but having games on your phone can be very convenient. For instance, if you’re in a waiting room somewhere with bad signal, you can pass the time by, playing a game on your phone. If you’ve ever been around restless little kids, you will also understand the importance of games on your phone and how they can be a lifesaver. Sometimes games can serve as a nice (and much needed) break from scrolling through social media. If you are a gamer, you are definitely not an outsider as the gaming market for phones alone is huge. As of June 2017, here were 3 million games on the Google Play Store, which is incredible considering games on the store were nonexistent in 2009. Many of these games cost money, ranging in price, while many are free to download. However, finding free games without ads isn’t always an easy task which is why we made this list. Sometimes “free” means strings attached and next thing you know, you’re being interrupted by in app purchases just when the game was getting good. Games without in app purchases for Android are games like Quizoid, Sonny, and Cytoid, which you will learn a bit more about later in the article. Many of these games are referred to as honest Android games.

While some games are extremely simple, others are more complex, which you can see with the Android games with the best story lines.
