Are you missing the good old times? The times when gaming was much simpler but still so much fun? Would you like to take your Android device out and play your favorite game from the 80s or 90s? 

I have got great news for you. You can do this now. Six back, relax and get ready to rediscover some of   the best retro games for Android.


Frogger is a well-known arcade classic which is now optimized for Android. Did you use to play this game? I was once addicted to it. It's so great that I can now play it on my phone.  The idea behind the game is very simple.

You have to get to the other side safely. All you have to do is jump past cars and trucks on the road to reach logs and turtles in the river. Once you reach the other side of the road, you have to "use" turtles or logs to reach the other side of the river. Be careful and don't let any car run you down and don't fall into water because you will lose. The game is as simple as addictive.

Below you can see some screenshots from the game.

And how about Pac-Man? Did you use to play this game too? I used to play it for hours, I really loved that game. This is another world famous arcade classic game.

In this game you are a Pac Man, a man running in the maze and eating pills. Of course, there are also the bad guys  - ghosts you have to avoid at all costs.  Are you ready to rediscover the Pac Man's story?

Tetris! That's an absolute must-have for both fans and non-fans of retro games for Android. This is the classic arcade game released in new beautiful graphics. . Now you can slide, rotate and drop your Tetriminos using your touchscreen .

While having a break, you can listen to the remix of the famous Tetris tunes.  Tetris has never been so beautiful and so much fun. Great graphics make the game quite heavyweight so it's better to download it via WiFi.

Bubble Pop Plus

If you like bubble style games, you are going to love that one. Bubble Pop Plus itself is not a retro game but it uses the classic ideas of bubble style games.  You have to pop colored bubbles with other bubbles.

The further you go, the more difficult it gets and the more difficult it is to stop playing. Do you wanna try?

Do you want to try something that is SO MUCH like the games in the 80s and 90s? If you do, you cannot miss Meganoid. This is the game exactly like the ones from the 80s and 90s together with its pixel-art graphics. Amazing.

The game has many levels and each one can be completed within a minute. The game is simple in the beginning only. Later it gets harder and harder.

Ready for another journey back in time? This one will be a bit different, though. The game and its rules remain unchanged but the game's interface has been enriched with  a "contemporary twist."

You can see it in the screenshots below.  In the game you have to use your paddle and bat balls into the air. Each time you bat a ball it gets smaller and you receive more points. Be careful because the game is very addictive.
