Video games on mobile phones, especially free ones, have a very bad reputation. In addition to the fact that they are often of extremely poor quality or shameless copies of popular games, this free should be put in big quotes. They are free only if you want to dedicate all your free time to them, doing boring and repetitive tasks.
However, not all mobile games are like that. True, they all have a premium version and they show ads that you have to watch, but the ads are not too annoying and the game can be played without buying a premium version.
We present to you, in our opinion, the top 3 best free Android and iOS video games in 2021. These are not games that came out in 2021, but they are among the best games for this gaming platform and they deserve your attention.
Alto’s Odyssey is a free video game available for Android and iOS. The game puts you in the role of a skier who descends through colorful landscapes from snow-capped mountains to sun-drenched deserts and tropical islands. Do not question the logic of desert skiers, because there is none, but enjoy the beautiful graphics and relaxing music.
The game itself is quite simple and is suitable for both children and adults. Your goal is to complete various tasks, like performing a jump of a certain distance or making a backflip above the tornado. During this, you can collect items to upgrade your equipment or receive certain bonuses.
The game is free, but it will occasionally show you ads that, in our opinion, are not overly annoying. If you don’t want to have ads at all, you can buy a premium version of the game that has no ads. Also, there is an in-game store where it is possible to buy cosmetic items that do not affect gameplay.
Android and iOS
Asphalt 9: Legends
Asphalt 9: Legends is a free video game available for Android and iOS, and this is the latest sequel to the famous Asphalt racing game series, which has about 20 games so far. The first game in the series, Asphalt Urban GT, came out back in 2004 for the Nintendo DS and Nokia N-Gaga.
As we said, this is a car racing game in which you compete against real people or AI opponents. You can choose from more than 50 different cars, compete in more than 70 challenges, and race on numerous tracks.
The game is in arcade-style, which means that it is not realistic at all. This is not a simulation of a real car race. During the race, you can collect items that will give you a temporary acceleration or create an energy field around you that will blow the first opponent who touches you to pieces. There are also jumping platforms, parts of the track that will make you move faster, and much more that will make the race more interesting.
The graphics are beautiful and Asphalt 9: Legends is an example of how far graphics in mobile games have progressed. One note we have to make is that because of these graphics the game will work poorly on older mobile phones.
Android and iOS
Smash Hit is a free video game available for Android and iOS. The game belongs to the Endless Runner genre, which means that the game technically has no end, but every time you try to last as long as possible before you die, and during that time you try to collect as many points as possible.
In Smash Hit, you travel through a surreal dimension consisting of interesting geometric shapes, and your goal is to avoid glass obstacles in which if you hit you lose health points. When you are out of health points, you lose. As an aid, you have metal balls with which you can break glass obstacles, but throwing each ball consumes a few health points, so the goal is to throw as few balls as possible.
The graphics are beautiful, and the game contains 11 different landscapes through which you travel. Music is something we have to especially praise. It is very pleasant and perfectly creates a sense of mystery, and it also has an impact on the game itself because the obstacles move in its rhythm.
Smash Hit is a free game without ads, which is almost unheard of in free mobile games. It is possible to purchase a premium version of the game that unlocks new game modes, but they are not necessary to enjoy the game.
