Here are some of the best Android games that are not on the Play Store. The games are deleted or unsaved or in violation of Google’s ToS.
Google Play hosts millions of Android games which can be directly downloaded on the device. Store has all kinds of games from RPG, FPS, casual, defense, math, art, action, arcade etc. But there are a lot of games that can’t be made for the Android Marketplace for a number of reasons, whether it’s a violation of Google’s ToS or the nature of the game itself acting as a barrier to a game getting a place in the Google Store.
