- Publisher: Dani Dev Stuff
Milkman Karlson is a game made by Dani, an indie dev who also developed many popular games like MUCK, Crab Game, and KARLSON. He made this game a long time ago but it still is entertaining.
In this game, you have to move your drunk-like Character “Karlson” to the store so that he can buy some milk and proceed to the next level by teleporting through the window. You fight your way with the bots to reach the store to finish the level but your real enemy is not the bots but your walking style which makes the game a bit more challenging.
You could duel wield pistols or use a rifle to kill the enemy bots; the most fun part of the game is that you could slow down the time and kill the enemies in the most stylish way possible.
The game also has an endless mode(Arena) where the enemy waves keep on coming, and you have to make the highest score possible(This is the best place to make some money for that Gucci Banana)
Dani has not made any games or videos for over a year so support the Indie Dev by playing his games.

Madfinger Games, the creative minds behind this captivating game, brought it to life in 2012. However, their recent pursuit of a groundbreaking masterpiece led them to entrust their mobile titles to the capable hands of DECA Games.

Shadow Fight 4
- Publisher: Nekki
Shadow Fight is a popular franchise developed by Nekki Games, Shadow fight 4 provides you with PvP, which makes the game a lot more fun. Playing against a person is more challenging and fun than fighting with bots. The game’s more difficult than its predecessors and the new combos, and animations are more exhilarating.
The game provides you with new combos with realistic graphics. You can unlock new characters and create your team. Sadly the game has no story and focuses on the gameplay aspect only, but you have some side quests and side missions to complete.
Just like shadow fight 3 the game sometimes asks you to play with certain conditions like playing with inverted controls or fighting against an invisible enemy which makes the games a bit more challenging.
You could slow down time by activating the shadow power like in the previous game and most of the stuff’s the same as the previous games but you should give this PvP a shot.
- Publisher: Scopely
Stumble Guys is quite a popular game developed by Scopely Games. Everyone considers it a clone of fall guys, and that’s why it gained a lot of popularity as there is no fall guys mobile version, this game got a large no of active players just after the launch.
Unlike fall guys, the game has a player count of 32 players per game while the fall guys have 60. Every match takes only a few minutes to complete, and the game is not too addicting and is like a stress buster.
In this knockout game, you get characters that are more like humans and not cartoonish like Fall Guys. The music of the games matches the theme of the game. The colors of the obstacles stand out which makes the game look like an inflatable funhouse rather than an arena full of obstacles.
Players can buy skins, idle animations, running particles, and a lot more from the shop. Some people say that the game is a pay to win as there’s an ability that allows you to punch the enemies and push them. This ability can be bought from the shop and the game does not consider anything as player levels or anything for matchmaking which is not good considering the fact there might be some players that have such abilities while the others don’t.
The game should also provide some stats like how long the player was on the first position and how many times he got that position. Such stats make the game more exciting. Well, this is the best fall guys clone so far on mobile so there is not much to complain about and you should give this game a try.
Asphalt 9 Legends
- Publisher: Gameloft SE
Gameloft is known for producing games with high-quality graphics that look strikingly similar to or better than the graphics you get on PC games. Gameloft Studios has been producing games since 14 December 1999. Gameloft Studios does not use ads to monetize the game and solely focuses on earning by selling in-game items.
The asphalt series is one of the most popular series developed by the studio. In this game, you have to compete with the other cars to get the first position but there’s something that makes the game more exciting; you can push the cars away when you boost or do a 360 and they get wrecked sometimes. This game reminds me of burnout paradise, just like burnout paradise you can wreck the cars when you boost and ram the enemy car.
Well, this arcade game does not have any competition on mobile that’s why Gameloft is successful in making you buy some in-game items as they are necessary for you to progress in the game which makes the game a pay-to-win.
Hungry Shark World

You start as a small shark in both games, and you can only eat animals that are smaller than you. Sharks and animals that are bigger than you also try to eat you so, stay out of their range. If you do not eat anything your lifeline will deplete, and you will die. So keep on eating to survive.
In hungry shark evolution, you have only a few sharks to buy and only one map to play on, while in hungry shark world, there are more sharks to buy and more maps to play on.

List of Best Android Games in 2023
The gaming community is growing at an exponential rate in India and so are the gaming studios but sadly only a few games get the attention they need and only popular game studios make the most money. The companies like Tencent are continuously taking a stake in many companies like Ubisoft, Gameloft, supercell, etc.
Tencent has a stake of over 83% in Supercell games and they have even taken a 100% stake in many companies giving them the right to make decisions.
They are totally focusing on making pay-to-win games if you do not want to see only pay-to-win games and paid games on the play store in the future then you should support small game studios like Gameeon and Nodding Heads Games that are continuously trying to deliver their best.
Raji: An ancient epic by nodding head games and Mumbai gullies by Gameeon have got the attention they need but there are many studios that you do not even know about but are continually making masterpieces like Bad 2 Bad: Apocalypse by DAWINSTONE .
