Best Android games 2013
Looking for the best Android games to download from Google Play? We pick the standout paid-for and free Android games from the past year you need to make homescreen space for.
2013 has been a good year for Android phones and tablets. HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 domination aside, the 20-megapixel camera toting-Sony Xperia Z1 was a standout alternative and LG made a solid return to form with the LG G2.
At the other end of the smartphone spectrum, the Nexus 5 and the £135 Motorola Moto G proved once again it is possible to make an decent-looking, affordable phone with high end specs.
On the tablet front, Google unleashed the new Nexus 7 to eat into a few more iPad sales, Amazon unleashed the Kindle Fire HDX 7 and 8.9 and it was the year that the high street got in on the action with the Tesco Hudl the pick of the bunch.
All of these would of course be pretty useless to own without having some decent apps to pack onto those multiple homescreens. Thankfully, Google Play has come on leaps and bounds in the last 12 months not just for apps but for games as well.
If you are planning to invest in an Android tablet or smartphone, and wondering which games to pile on first, we've picked out our favourite Android games of 2013.
