Some of the best Android games are paid ones. It’s true that you have to spend some money to get quality products. Here are 5 awesome free Android games without ads or in-app purchase option.
Everybody enjoys playing video games. You don’t have to be a hardcore gamer, casual gaming counts too. The Google play store has millions of games. Some of them are free & some of them are paid.
While it’s easy to find amazing games which are free to play, they do show ads & are created in a way that you will have to buy some in-game items if you want to proceed to higher levels. A good example is all kind of racing games. Now, it’s completely all right to spend a few dollars on the games that will entertain you for months. Plus, the ads & In-App Purchases provide monetary support to the developers. We’re not against spending money on quality games. The problem, these days, is that this freemium & pay to win strategy is getting out of hands. That’s why I mostly prefer paid games as they don’t have any form of ads or In-App Purchases.
Worry not, if you don’t want to pay for a mobile game, we got you covered.

You will love Mekorama if you are a fan of puzzle games. Actually, in 2016, we called it the best puzzle game of the year. Yep, it’s that good.
The first thing you will notice upon installing Mekorama is that it’s very similar to Monument Valley. Once you go past that, you will appreciate the gameplay. The goal of the game is to guide a robot to the exit on a 3d structure. There are a few pieces of the structure that you can move around in order to create a direct path to the exit.
In Mekorama, there is no time limit or a fixed set of lives. You can take as much time as required to clear the level.
Mekorama is free to download from the Google play store. It has 50 awesome levels. And, if that’s not enough for you, it also has a level editor where you can create your own levels. It doesn’t show ads. It does, however, have In-App Purchase. But, that’s just for a donation. It’s totally optional. Whether you donate some money to the developer or not, it’s not going to affect the gameplay in any manner.

2048 is one of the best puzzle games of all time. This game took the world by storm & all of a sudden everyone was playing it. When I was in the University, almost everyone in my class had it on their smartphones.
The game was so successful that you can find countless copies of it in the Google play store. While the original 2048 has both ads & In-App Purchases, there are a few copies that are 100 percent free. The one I’m talking about comes from the developer Jerry Jiang.
This version of 2048 doesn’t have any ads, doesn’t ask for any kind of permission, and is open-source i.e. its code is available for you to see on Github.
