If one thing which is constant at par with change, it is the mobile application development on the day to day basis. Both iPhone and Android application developers burn their midnight oil to come up with the solution which can keep the mobile user hooked to their mobile screen. As per a recent statistics there are more than 800,000 apps in both the Apple and the Android inventory. And amongst those apps you are expected to find some which cater mainly to gaming. This has been a significant year for Android games, where the users had the opportunity to encounter quality games rather than quantity.
It has become the prerogative of the iPhone users that the iPhone App developers make sure that the users would have a first hand experience in some games or get the exclusive games which are only meant for the iOS platforms. But Android game developers are not far behind. The Android games are more in numbers which gives the Android users more options to choose from. But in most cases users have a tendency to find more junk than jewels.
This year has been a little different with Android gaming providing more qualitative content to the gamers. Android game developers have been treating gamers with games like Great Brain Experiment where the player plays as the subject of an experiment or the addictive shooter like Brother in Arms 2: Global Front which is a direct adaptation from the games developed for PC or consoles. Gamers had the opportunity to experience the open-world sandbox games such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City or get to shoot some goal by the Real Football 2013. And it was only the first half of year 2013.
So what can the Android game Lovers expect from the second half of the year?
The second half of the year is filled with every genre which is available in the gaming world. Be it First person shooter (FPS), Role Playing Game (RPG), Third Person Shooter (TPS) or Real Time Strategy (RTS), an avid Android gamer can expect them all. But this blog post would be taking up 5 of the best games which can be expected to hit the screen of your smart phones and tabs as the year ends.
