Welcome to Softonic’s breakdown of the top ten Android games. There are so many mobile games today, it can be challenging to select one that you may actually like. As such, it may be a good idea to look at what other gamers are downloading and playing.

This list is based on the number of downloads from the Softonic site, revealing how popular they are. So, without further ado, here’s our top ten list of popular Android games. Be sure to watch this video to see the gameplay footage and hear my commentary.


Welcome to our number 1 downloaded Android game! When it comes to the mobile version, the game mechanics remain the same. You’ll explore vast lands while surviving against mobs in the evening. Destroying objects gives you blocks to build with, and there’s food to sate your hunger.

You’ll have to pay for the Android version of Minecraft, but we managed to get some footage for you to see what it looks like. The controllers are pads and buttons on the screen, and you can quickly tap your inventory.

Garena FreeFire

As with most battle royale shooters, you jump from a plane in Garena Free Fire and land on the battlefield. In your quest to win, you’ll find weapons and ammo to take out your opponents. When you kill them, you simply need to stand over their corpses to obtain more powerful firearms, ammo, and armor.

As you’ll see from my recording, it was pretty easy winning my first match. Yes, that was my first Garena Free fire game ever, and I capped those players so quickly, it was almost too easy.

SubWay Surfers

Are you in the mood for a casual endless running game? It looks like Subway Surfers is near the top of our list. It features a graffiti artist that’s spraying walls on a railway line before a security guard appears on the screen. What unfolds is an endless run, jumping over objects and away from trains in an effort not to be caught.

The video shows my attempt at a first run using BlueStacks. At first, it looks pretty easy until you run into a train or jump incorrectly. You’ll probably have a laugh at how many times I failed in the recording.

Poppy PlayTime: Chapter 2

Are you in the mood for some psychological horror? After the success of the first chapter, Poppy PlayTime: Chapter 2 quickly came to Android after the PC release. It directly follows the events of the first chapter after you eliminated Huggy Wuggy for good….or did you?

As you can see in the video, you’ll have these mechanical hands to get through the scenes. I’ve already completed both chapters on PC, and there’s a slight difference in visuals and gameplay. Still, you’ll need to perform the same actions to find your way out.

Roblox has many exciting titles for you to enjoy. Most of the games are free, but many of them have microtransactions in the form of Robux. You don’t need to buy any of the items to enjoy the games, but it does help you progress quickly.

In the video, you’ll see me playing Mall Tycoon, one of my favorite games on the platform. I’ve progressed quite far and resurrected about five times already to obtain new rewards. There are also many scary titles too.

Stumble Guys

Stumble Guys features qualifying rounds to make it through to the next level. With each stage you make it through, you’ll earn higher ranks. The best part of the rewards is that you can acquire fun outfits and gear for your characters.

If you can’t outrun your opponents, push them off the ledge. That’s what makes the game so much fun. You don’t want to miss the action in the video as I played Stumble Guys on Bluestacks, struggling to get into the qualifiers.

The premise of Fortnite is that you drop from a Battle Bus onto an arena that changes every season, shooting other players and completing quests until one person or team is left standing. Every season sees new skins and characters, while there’s always some storyline to propel you into exciting adventures.

You’ll find vehicles on the battlefield to transport you to distant locations, while chests provide you with exotic weapons. Luckily, your skins and gear transfer to new seasons. But I don’t want to spoil it for you. Look at the features in the video.

You may not recognize the name eFootball at first, as it used to be called Pro Evolution Soccer. With the dynamic name change comes a few new features, but it’s still the same game by Konami. You’ll build a dream team of players to enter football tournaments and championships.

You can choose from authentic football clubs from different countries, selecting their famous sports gear. Want to know more? I have specific commentary dealing with the game in the video.

Mobile Legends

With similar gameplay to League of Legends, Mobile Legends features towers and bases on either side of the map. Once you select your hero, you need to run across one of the three lanes to battle minions and opposing heroes. You’ll confront the enemy’s towers before finding and destroying the base.

What makes Mobile Legends so popular are the ranks. As you play and win matches, you’ll climb different levels. You can check out more details and visuals in our video where I show what it looks like heading through the lanes.

Brawl Stars

Supercell released this Android gem worldwide in 2018. The concept involves selecting a Brawler, or hero, that you move around the screen to shoot other players or bots. While you’ll start with a basic hero, you’ll unlock more brawlers the longer you play.

There are different modes in the Android game, namely Brawl Pass, Power League, and Club League. You’ll also find seasons where you play various modes for specific rewards. Be sure to check out the video above for more details and gameplay footage.
