Six top multiplayer games for Android phones

The number and quality of Android games is growing all the time, as is their complexity. We take a look at some of the best games for your phone that support multiplayer action.

N.O.V.A. 2 HD

The N.O.V.A. series of games let you play against a group of friends or anyone in the world, and with some seriously stylish graphics and unlimited game play you won’t be bored for a second. It’s like having a games console in your pocket.

Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus

Few games get the adrenaline flowing as quickly as Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus. You can take on a friend in a challenging landscape or groups of people, or just sit back and play alone. It is one of the best Android first person shooters available.

Words With Friends

This game lets you play against anyone you know or random players from across the globe. It is similar to Scrabble; you play your word and wait for your opponent to play theirs. A game can take a day or a month, but it is great fun either way.

ShipCombat Multiplayer

This classic version of Battleships is great fun in multiplayer mode on an Android device. You can invite friends or play against random opponents and the sense of trepidation as the bombs fall still remains. It works best on a smartphone and can be played anywhere.


Who wouldn’t want to fly a plane and battle against friends to see who can stay in the air the longest? Well, with MiniSquadron! you can do all this and more using the Wi-Fi multiplayer feature. It is truly great fun and will keep you coming back time and time again.


This game only supports local multiplayer, but that doesn’t take away from the fun at all. It is a true 3D tank battle game that requires skill, thought and at times lots of bottle. It really does feel like a console-quality title and is hugely addictive.
