Top 20 Action Adventure Games For Android

Posted on Jul 9 2013 - 9:24am by apps

When looking at having some fun with your Android smart phone or tablet, action and adventure games are easy choices for some instant satisfaction. Some are first person or second person shooters where you plan your attack and then execute it with violence of action. With other games that include an RPG or more tactical element, you have to consider what will be your best strategy that will lead to success. You may be fighting Zombies or entering the game as Batman himself, the Dark Knight, to fly to a damsel’s rescue and fight the worst of the worst in Gotham City.

To help you in your gaming journey, we have put together our list of the Top 20 Action Adventure Games for Android that we have come across recently. They include some first person shooters, the more strategic third person shooters, a trip to Feudal Japan as a Samurai, and a blast to the past with Sonic.
