Slendrina the best Android horror games
Not everyone likes the horror genre because it never seems to do well enough to scare them or they just plain hate being scared. Others are exactly the opposite and enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with being scared. As it turns out, there are actually some decently scary horror games on mobile. Here are the best Android horror games.

curse breakers horror mansion the best Android horror gamesCurse Breakers: Horror Mansion

[Price: Free]
Curse Breakers: Horror Mansion is a point-and-click puzzle game. The premise is you are a curse breaker and you must explore a haunted mansion to uncover its secrets and deal with the paranormal. It’s not as in-your-face scary as others but it’s a great casual game with horror elements. It’s also a very rare free game with no in app purchases. The only caveats are that it’s simple and short but it is totally free so it’s hard to be too judgmental.

dead space the best Android horror gamesDead Space

[Price: $6.99]
The hit shooter Dead Space is on a lot of horror game lists because of its great graphics and creepy story. The controls are simple and were designed that way so you could focus on what’s going on in the game rather than worrying about control. Dead Space sits in the horror sci-fi genre and reviewers have lauded its truly creepy story line and shocking cut scenes. It’s a tad expensive and it is buggy for some people, so do test it out before the two hour refund cut off time.

[Price: Free / $0.99]
Before Five Nights At Freddy’s took the title of Android’s scariest game, the nomination frequently went to Dungeon Nightmare.

Even the premise is scary: every night you dream about being in an endless dungeon from which there is no escape. There are candles available to help you get through the labyrinth but there are points where it hurts as much as it helps. It’s a good experience for horror fans.

Limbo hit the ground running when it was released in 2015 and it’s already one of the most enjoyed and talked about games of the year. You play as a kid looking for his sister in the creepy, monochrome world of Limbo. The throwback black and white design fits the atmosphere perfect and this is easily one of the best designed games of 2015 so far.

murder room the best Android horror gamesMurder Room

[Price: Free with in app purchases]
Murder Room is a lesser known horror game but it’s still pretty creepy. In this puzzle game, you must escape confinement. Many of the visuals are quite disturbing and when you finish the main story, you can buy part two of the game as an in app purchase. It is worth noting that this game is very hard. So hard that it’s elicited negative reviews from users before. Other than that, it’s an enjoyable title with some clever and scary twists.

[Price: $0.99 and $2.99 respectively]
The Room 1 and 2 are world renown puzzle games that have you searching for things inside of things and then there are more puzzles inside of those things. Aside from its extremely clever puzzle style, the game itself has a truly arcane story line that involves alternate time lines, plenty of skeletons, and tinkering with dark forces beyond one’s control. It’s a little more subtle than others, but there’s a feeling of dread hovering around. These are masterpieces.

    how about a decent strategy game, not one of these crap clash of clans stuff with in game purchases!

    i cant believe i can find no games to play on my tab s 10

    • KK

      I wish too but you can almost find none of these either without IAP or Ads. I think piracy is part of the problem that they came up with the IAP model.

    • Katerine Luznacki

      best horror game ever!

  • Zhaki Karakashi

    There are some great horror games on the list, but you mainly ruined it for the readers for not including Hide an Seek in the list. As the other comments suggest Hide and Seek is my favorite scary game for android for me too.
