There are a lot of Android games out there – so many that it would take you months, if not years, to play each and every one of them, so how do you know which ones are worth your attention and which ones are just a waste of your time? Sure, you can go with popular picks like Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja, but what if you’re tired of all the hype that surrounds these games?

What if you want to play the next big hit, before it becomes the next big hit? This article will show off 5 under-the-radar Android games that might just be the next Flappy Bird. Make sure you try’em all!

Blocky Roads

At a first glance Blocky Roads may seem like your everyday side-scrolling racing game. It’s not. It is a side-scrolling racing game -which part is true, but the game is everything but an “every day” game, mainly because of its interesting combination of elements. The graphics seem to be borrowed from the far too popular Minecraft, and this is quite an interesting pick in a time where all games try to look as realistic as possible.

However, there’s a reason for the choppy graphics – the game allows you to build your own vehicles, in a Lego-like manner, which is completely awesome, given how much everyone likes Lego. So, to recap, you have a nice racing game, with colorful unrealistic yet funny-looking backgrounds, and fully customizable cars – what else could you ask for?

Breach and Clear

When mobile games started to gain popularity, one of the genres I thought I’d never see on a mobile device was the first-person shooter. A quick look over the Google Play Market will prove just how wrong I was.

However, these games are quite simple, compared to their PC counterparts, so it’s no wonder some users prefer to look at something that’s similar, but also different, and Breach and Clear is exactly that. The game is a blend between Counter Strike and Final Fantasy, mixing elements of a first person shooter with elements of a tactical game, the result being an extremely addictive game that will keep you busy for hours.

Middle Manager of Justice

Have you ever wondered what do the superheroes you see in movies do when they’re not busy saving the world? They go to the office, of course. You’re not the only one with a boring office job and an annoying boss.

In Middle Manager of Justice, you play the role of the annoying boss, having to manage a team of super heroes. Manage is the keyword here, as you’ll literally have to manage your team, organizing training sessions, overseeing epic-scale fights and coming up with solutions to various problems that might arise along the way. The game is tons of fun, but challenging at the same time. Do you have what it takes to be a manager for a bunch of superheroes? Find out!

Smash Hit

One of the biggest concerns of anybody’s childhood is to “be careful not to break a window with the ball”. Yes, I’m sure this was a concern everyone deal with at some point, so I’m also sure that a game where your main goal is to use balls to break various types of windows and glass can be utterly satisfying.

Smash Hit is all about shattering as many glass elements as possible, some of them simple, some of them highly complex, and there are few things more satisfying than seeing a complex glass figure in pieces.

Plague Inc.

Remember how every time you watched a movie with an apocalyptic theme that involved a deadly virus or something similar you always teamed up with the good guys and hoped they find a cure in time? Well, in Plague Inc. you’re on the other side of the action – you control the deadly virus, and your goal is to destroy mankind – up to the last person.

You’ll have to come up with a good tactic, because people are not just going to lie down and die, but put up quite a fight instead. Will they be clever enough to find a cure in time, or will your virus become famous for being the virus that wiped out the human race? There’s only one way to find out.
