Top 5 best strategy games for Android
Strategy games are not always the easiest games. The best games can also be the hardest. But they're also often the most rewarding. If you like to think tactically and strategically to overcome obstacles, it's a great game to play.
And the best part is that there's a lot of really fun stuff. Also, there are generally a lot of them. So we've narrowed it down to 10 of the best strategy games for Android. This saves time because you don't have to scroll endlessly to find something to try.
1. Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf
It's one of Warhammer 40,000's best mobile games, featuring 10 new story-driven missions, squad-based battles that require more tactical thinking, and even 3v3 PvP multiplayer battles.
One of the few free games on this list, Warhammer 40,000:
Space Wolf has in-game purchases, but it's still one of the best strategy games for Android. Moreover, it is updated regularly. So it seems there is a lot of life left.
Northgard is one of our favorites at the moment, partly because of its Norse mythology theme, but partly because it's a very good strategy game. Best of all, it wasn't that hard to learn. It takes some practice to master, but the basics are easy to pick up, play and learn. That's not the case with every strategy game out there.
Northgard has a diverse collection of content that can be played alone, but also offers multiplayer. What I liked most about multiplayer is that you can choose to play with or against other players. What a nice feeling.
Apart from that, some players seem to have issues with lag and loading the game. So keep that in mind when considering.
3. Despotism 3K
Depotism 3K is not for the faint of heart. Full of black humor and more mature themes. Hence the age rating from 17 years old. If that doesn't bother you, there's a lot to love about what's going on here... First, it's an affordable premium title. Also, there are no in-game purchases. So you win.
Above all, the classical and retro graphics are comfortable. It's primarily a strategy game, but it also has rouge light features. So players beware.
4. Out There: Omega Edition
Games like Northgard were a bit more accessible, but Out There Omega Edition is not. It's also listed as a hard game by the developers, no kidding. The game is challenging and you can have a hard time getting over certain parts. Luckily, there are forums with helpful tips that you can always use your courage and willpower to get through.
In this game, you take on the role of an astronaut stranded in the vastness of space outside our solar system. Upon awakening from cryosleep, the ship is inoperable. So part of your job is to use salvaged parts to make it work again.
5. Arc The Lad R
Arc The Lad was originally a tactical JRPG, later published by SEGA. Arc The Lad R is not that kind of game. Rather, it's an all-new title from Boltrend Games based on SEGA's popular franchise. It's more of a strategy game than a tactical RPG, but if you're a fan of the franchise it's a lot of fun.
If you like anime style art and graphics. It also has a pretty great story, and the character development isn't lacking at all.
