June has flown by and it’s time for our recap of the best free Android games to have come out this month. Recall that many of these titles still haven’t officially been released on Google Play, but we’ve already got them for you to download here on Uptodown with no geographical restrictions.
Star Wars: Rivals
Games based on the Star Wars universe appear endless and we ain’t mad about it. Particularly when they’re titles of as high a quality as Rivals. In this fun third-person action title you can play legends on both sides of the Force: Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Boba Fett…
It’s got a meaty campaign where you relive the most legendary moments from the entire saga and it boasts quite an interesting online mode. [Download]
Lineage 2 Revolution
Though we’ve already dedicated a few lines to it here on the blog, Lineage 2 Revolution deserves all the limelight it can snag thanks to how clever it’s been in adapting itself to the mobile medium after killing it year after year in the PC world.
A title as vast as it is bursting with detail, where you move through one of best persistent worlds to be seen on Android. Careful – it’s addictive. Extremely addictive. [Download]
Cars: Lightning League
Lightning McQueen and crew are back in this official Disney game created to accompany the new Cars movie. This title draws on all the usual endless runner tropes to provide a more than thrilling experience. It’s got tremendous graphics and, with these chops, is practically impossible to get bored of.

South Park: Phone Destroyer
The world’s best cartoon for adults required a game up to scratch for smartphones – and it’s gotten the job done with Phone Destroyer. This RTS title has all the humor you’ve come to expect from the series created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Hang out with Cartman, Kyle & co. in this hormone-treated take on Clash Royale – one of the best experiences you’ll find on Android. [Download]
Though this game has been out since 2015, it’s only now, smack in the middle of 2017, that it’s gotten officially translated to English. This wait would have been only a bit annoying if we were talking about a normal game, but this is a terrific JRPG with a gigantic user base.
This Visual novel/RPG combo is based on the 2004 visual novel Fate/Stay Night that’s only gotten more popular as it ages. A totally epic game that you MUST check out. [Download]
This past month has been a big one for the Android gaming market given the latest interesting maneuver from SEGA to start offering its classic games for free. The so-called SEGA Forever initiative still has a lot of road left to cover, but we’re thrilled through and through to have so many interesting games with so much history behind them on this platform.
In the first round of games released under SEGA Forever we find old faves like Comix Zone, Phantasy Star II, Altered Beast, Kid Chameleon, and Sonic the Hedgehog. And best of all is that they are some seriously good ports. Though you’ve got to deal with the standard virtual buttons for games like this, at least you can relive the joys of the lovely Green Hill Zone in terrific quality. [See our blog review here.]
There’s a great spectrum of games available for Android that show how awesome games can be created with very simple resources. An example is Flippy Hills, a title where you have to get a chicken to the finish line by jumping nonstop. But no, it’s not as easy as it sounds.
It’s time to turn yourself into a proper acrobatic chicken throughout different levels that you have to get through. Jumping is an art in the gaming world and this game is a necessary homage to that talent. [Download]
The ridiculous popularity of Clash Royale has meant we now have clones and games inspired by it coming out the wazoo. And while most lack any kind of personality, ones like Castle Crush are here to prove that there’s still room for innovation.
Not only does the perspective change – it’s got an odd game system that pushes you to play units continuously to make your elixir meter keeps ticking up and up. A much more direct option that will really surprise you. [Download]
Ketchapp’s capacity to churn out game after game after game should surprise anybody, but more surprising still is the fact that most of their titles are wildly entertaining. And this one is also super smart, making it possible to do 1,001 different jumps with just one finger.
With its Tron-like aesthetic, Rider has all the hallmarks that make Ketchapp shine: minimalism, simplicity of controls, and tons of unlockable content to keep you hooked for ages. [Download]
Dead Ahead: Zombie Warfare
It seems zombies still have more juice to be squeezed out of them in the gaming world and with releases like this sequel to Dead Ahead things are sure to stay that way for a good while longer. It’s not just the delightful pixellated graphics – surviving this zombie apocalypse is going to be wayyyy harder than you first think.
