The Room Old Sins - best 3d games for android featured image
Mobile gaming has improved by leaps and bounds over the last half a decade. Where once we had only a few options and they were essentially Angry Birds or Solitaire, we now have giant, full games with amazing graphics. Since mobile devices don’t have 3D screens (like the Nintendo 3DS), there are no truly 3D games for Android. Instead, we decided to look at some of the best mobile games with 3D graphics. We hope you enjoy them!


Asphalt 9: Legends

Price: Freemium
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Asphalt 9: Legends is the latest arcade racing game from Gameloft. It's actually quite excellent for an arcade racer. You can unlock a ton of different vehicles, race in hundreds of various events (including special events), and customize your car to make it yours. There is, of course, online PvP mode as well. The graphics are above average for racing games and it is truly enjoyable to look at. Some other decent arcade racers include CSR Racing 2 and Real Racing 3. You could definitely do a lot worse with these 3D graphics.

Critical Ops

Critical Ops is one of the best shooters on Google Play. It's been referred to as the Counter Strike of mobile. You team up with people and play against others in online PvP action. The game features various competitive game types, tons of unlockable weapons, customization elements, and rock solid controls. You can chill in quick play, be truly competitive in ranked matches, and you can even create custom games for you and your friends. The game is freemium. However, the in-app purchases are nothing more than customization elements like weapon skins. You cannot pay to win this one.

Lumino City

Price: $4.99

Lumino City is a puzzle game from Noodlecake Studios. The game's graphics are actually real world objects. Thus, the graphics don't get any better than this because it's actually real life. The story takes about eight to ten hours to complete. Otherwise, you just engage with the world and solve the puzzles to progress. It's truly one of the greatest 3D games out there. It runs for $4.99 with no in-app purchases or advertisements.

The number of things you can do is virtually limitless. The game runs for $6.99. The in-app purchases are for player skins and don't affect game play.

Monster Hunter Stories

Price: Free demo / $19.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Monster Hunter Stories is a port of the popular game from the Nintendo 3DS. It plays surprisingly well for a mobile port. You embark on an adventure, capture monsters, train them, level them up, and have them fight with you against bad guys. There are also local PvP battles, a decent story line, and a decent soundtrack. The demo version of this is one of the best we've ever seen. It's actually a prequel to the main game. You complete the prequel and that data transfers to the main game if you buy it. The game costs $19.99 and that's a little steep. However, it's one of the best RPG experiences from 2018. We also recommend Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, Portal Knights, and Evoland 2.

Monument Valley 2

Price: $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Monument Valley 2 is one of the best puzzle games available. It's also a great 3D game. It uses Escher style level design and puzzles. Players need to rotate, move, or otherwise mess with levels in order to proceed. The game is rather short, but entertaining. It's also beautifully done. The first Monument Valley game is also quite good and fairly priced. Those looking for huge games may be disappointed, though. This is definitely a quick play.

PUBG Mobile

Price: Freemium
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
PUBG Mobile is a new release in 2018. It's already among the most popular 3D games out there. It's a battle royale game with up to 100 players competing against each other. The game also includes a smaller arcade mode and some other modes for players. It also plays shockingly well for being a mobile shooter that is also this new. The game was free at first. However, updates brought a freemium element to the game. Thankfully, it's mostly customization stuff and not game play stuff. When Fortnite hits Android, it'll be a shoo-in for this list as well.

Returner 77

Price: $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Returner 77 is a puzzle-adventure game with some of the best graphics in any game we saw in 2018. The story is decent as well. You play as one of the few surviving members of an alien invasion. You must explore an alien spacecraft and hopefully rebuild humanity with what you find there. The game also features live action video clips, an above average soundtrack, and easy-to-learn mechanics. It didn't get as much press or popularity as it probably should have, but we liked it quite a bit. The game runs for $4.99 with no in-app purchases or ads.
