Survivalcraft, as I’m sure you can tell from the name alone, is a clone to the popular video game Minecraft. Within this title, players are left stranded on a blocky world where they must collect resources, craft tools, and most of all survive. What makes Survivalcraft a more approachable title compared to the widely known Minecraft video game is that the developers are pretty much on top of things with new updates and features, not to say Minecraft falls far behind, but if you need a good alternative that still stays close with blocky visuals then this would be our recommendation.


Gangstar Vegas

Google Play

Price: Free

If you enjoy video games like the Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row series then Gangstar Vegas is probably your best option for a free alternative on mobile. Players are tossed into a pretty big map of Las Vegas where our protagonist is an up and coming MMA fighter that gets intertwined with the mafia. As you become featured in the biggest fighting match of the year, the infamous crime lord Frank Veliano decides that you’ll take the fall and let your opponent win. Although, when you come out as the victor, you suddenly also come out as the most wanted man in the city. With an awesome soundtrack, a variety of weapons and vehicles to choose from, Gangstar Vegas has proven to be a must-have open world video game for mobile users.


Ravensword: Shadowlands

Google Play

Price: $6.99

In Ravensword: Shadowlands, the story opens up with the fall of Ravengard in which the world quickly erupts into chaos. Dark elven invaders begin to flood into the Kingdom of Tyreas and during the heat of battle, the ancient Ravensword was stolen. Players take on the role of a descendant to the ancient kings bloodline where it’s revealed that only you contain the power to wield the Ravensword and restore the world to its former glory. This third-person RPG resembles much of the same gameplay from The Elder Scrolls series as players have an open fantasy world to explore, various attributes to level up, quests to complete, along with a variety of enemies to face against.


Crazy Taxi: City Rush

Google Play

Price: Free

You likely played Crazy Taxi before as its been around since the 1990s and made its way onto a number of different platforms over the years. Regardless, the mobile version of the game, Crazy Taxi: City Rush stays intact with fast-paced addicting gameplay we remember from its first launch within arcades. Players take the role of a taxi driver in which they must deliver their passengers to their desired destination. Although there is a bit of a twist to this game as the roads are chaotic and you’ve got a very limited amount of time to reach your destination. Instead of playing it safe, the game rewards players for fast trips and close calls but if you fail to reach the destination in time your passenger will storm off in a fit of rage.


The Dark Knight Rises

Google Play

Price: $6.99

Normally when video games follow the story of various films they tend to get poor reviews, however, we can’t say that about The Dark Knight Rises. Tied to the film that bares the same name, players take on the role of Batman as he cleans up Gotham city. Given an array of various weapons from Batman’s arsenal, fighting crime is not only fun but can be unique to how a player wishes to approach a thug or two. If you’ve seen the film then you know where the plot is going as players must save Gotham from the incredibly strong and cunning villain Bane.


Goat Simulator

Google Play

Price: $4.99

Who knew Goat Simulator would be that much fun. Developers Coffee Stain Studios tossed together a truly wacky and addicting open world video game where players control a goat, that’s right a four-legged goat. Essentially, players are given goals to complete though the game gets its fame from the mass destruction players can emit and the wacky bug filled gameplay.


The Shadow Sun

Google Play
