Cut the Rope 2: Best Android puzzle game
Our first choice in puzzle games for Android is Cut the Rope 2. You feed candy to a little green critter named Om Nom. How do you go about feeding Om Nom? You cut the rope. This free game features brutally clever puzzles with solutions that many times are right there in front of your eyes, and yet you may miss them.
Don’t let the precious visuals fool you. Just because they are a little cheesy it doesn’t mean the game is. Cut the Rope 2 gets very tough in the later levels. Since success is always just a couple of snips away, this game never seems to get old.

Best Android tower defense games
Plants vs Zombies 2: Our first choice
Plants vs Zombies is one of the classic tower defense games that’s been around for a while. Its sequel, Plants vs Zombies 2, might just be this genre’s shining star. The first game is around $1 now, while the second one is free, offering in-app purchases.
In Plants vs Zombies 2, you employ the services of various shrubberies to overthrow an invading zombie army. PopCap provides you with a colorful well-balanced strategy game that is highly addictive. It can be replayed endlessly and is continuously inventive. Each stage is defined by its own unique traits which means that while you progress through the various levels, there will always be new and interesting challenges.
As far as free games go, Plants vs Zombies 2 is very generous in the unlocked content it provides for free, and it’s one heck of a good time.
Defense Zone 2 HD: Our first choice for anyone seeking a serious challenge
Defense Zone 2 HD is a very realistic tower defense game that comes with a modern military theme. When you compare it to its cutesy competition, it has more grit and far more gameplay.
Defense Zone 2 HD includes a great deal of tactical depth, which, if you have never played a tower defense game, can make it tough to get into. However, veterans of the genre will love the challenge.
The full version of Defense Zone 2 HD costs a reasonable US $2.99. However, there is also a light version available if you want to try it before you buy it. It’s certainly one of the best tower defense games for Android.
Castle Defense: Ideal for beginners
Castle Defense is another free game, which takes place in a fantasy realm. This is one of the older tower defense titles so don’t expect to find anything revolutionary here. Nevertheless, if you are new to this kind of games, Castle Defense does a great job at nailing the basics of the tower defense genre and is a great starting point for someone new to this genre.
The enemies walk along a fixed path, and you have to line the path with towers to stop the enemies from reaching the end. The graphics and audio are pretty basic but there are more than 100 levels with three difficulty settings that you can upgrade at any time. Castle Defense is one of those games that keep you coming back for more.
