Thousands of applications and games are also being developed by eminent developers all of the world. But all games are not good enough and are not worth playing. So, in this article, I have collected the most popular and the best android game of 2012.
Most of these games have been released in 2012, but some are from previous years which are worth mentioning. Each and every game in this list has been well played by me, which have helped me write a better opinion on why these are the best android games that you must play this 2012.
So sit back, and enjoy with an awesome Android gaming experience.
It is an outstanding physics based puzzle game. It is a highly addictive game, that you can’t stop playing. The objective of this game is simple enough. All you need to do, is feed a candy to a green cartoon-like frog “Om Nom”. The candy will be hanging on a rope, and you need to cut the rope to drop the candy for the frog to eat it.
But this isn’t that simple, there are spikes, electric shocks which can destroy the candy if it touches them while dropping. But there are bubbles and suckers, which can help you to feed the candy to the frog. There are actually two objectives of the game – it’s not enough, if you just feed the candy to the frog, but you also need to collect as many stars as possible. The more stars you collect, the more levels you can unlock. There are lots of levels in the game, each one being more challenging than the other. It is really one of the best android games, and is surely a must play for all android lovers.
This is the next installment of Cut The Rope from Zepto Lab. The mechanics of the game are same as that of the previous installment, but the levels and much more interesting and challenging. The objective is also same, that you need to feed the frog with the candy. But accomplishing this task is a bit more tricky and challenging.
Here a scientist gets a box, with ”Om Nom” in it. He sets up the candy for you to cut it and feed the frog with it. The visuals are also a bit improved, than the previous installment. There is a level called “Rocket Science”, which is my hot favorite. Not only mine, but also, most of the Cut The Rope players, has this level as the most favorite one. The gameplay on this level is really very interesting and challenging.
The angry birds are now out to space, to hit the dirty pigs. The mechanics of the game are same as the previous Angry Birds installments. But the interesting thing about this game is the gravitational field around each celestial body. So, whenever you project a bird to hit a pig, the trajectory gets changed depending on the intensity of the gravitational field.
This makes the game more challenging and interesting. You have to pre-think the trajectory of the birds, before projecting. Even the visuals have been improved to a great extent. So, if you are an Angry Birds fan, then this game is a must play. Even if you are not an Angry Birds fan, then also you must get your hands on it, as you will surely become a big fan after playing this. It’s really one of the best android games of 2012.

You can use NOS to give the cars a sudden boost, just by a swipe of a finger. Not only this, the intelligent implementation of the Spike Strips, Turbo Boost, Oil Spills, etc makes the game even more engaging.
You can play both as a Cop or as a Racer. Both of them have equally difficult and thrilling gameplay. And most importantly, you can play by using your device’s accelerometer. You don’t need to use the touch screen controls to drive the cars. This makes the game even more enjoyable and entertaining. So, if you are a real fan of racing games, then this game is a must play.
