There are a variety of games on the Google Play Store that allow us to play different roles. We can be a doctor managing a clinic, a professional chef, a mayor of a great virtual city, and even a soldier at war, fighting for his or her country's peace. On today's app list, we will be tackling some Android games that let you become a soldier without having to undergo rigorous training. With these games, you can feel how it is to become a soldier. You can even command a war in a peaceful and fun way.

World War

The World War app is a text-based online multiplayer game that lets you play the role of a general. You will be able take missions and build your own army. You will face challenges, daring missions, and battle other players to create an army that will rule the world.

Launching the app will let you choose a country. Each country will have its own special abilities such as additional energy points, additional power to air units, and additional health points. Energy points are used to perform certain actions in the game, such as doing missions. Once all your energy points are used up, you will have to wait for it to replenish. You also have to keep watch on your Health points before battling other players online.

Doing missions lets you gain experience points and earn virtual money. Accumulating enough experience points will let you gain a level and will unlock new missions and more units to deploy. You will also receive stat points to increase the strength of your army. You can also improve your army by inviting your friends and battling your enemies together.


As the name suggests, FRONTLINE COMMANDO lets you play as the last standing commando, defending your post from enemy attacks. This game will let you become the sole commando, and you will have to avoid waves of bullets, shoot your enemies, and accomplish your mission.
