The best Android games of May 2022 – Apex Legends Mobile, Knotwords and more
It’s the last weekend of the month, May is nearly over, and that means it’s time to look back on the past four weeks or so and figure out which games released during that time were the best. Because knowing that something is the best is for some reason very important.
It’s been a really good month for Android games, especially if you’re into shooting, punching, and more shooting. That said, there are also some great puzzles on the list, and a classic style point-and-click adventure.
You can click on the game names below to download them from the Play Store, and unless otherwise stated, they are premium. If you have your own favorite from May that hasn’t been mentioned, let us know in the comments section.
A brilliant port of one of the best battle royale games ever made. It works surprisingly well on mobile and manages to capture all the thrills and spills without sacrificing too much. It’s great, it’s a lot of fun and there’s always something to do. It’s free with IAP.
Another shooter, this time from the developer behind Vainglory. It’s a reasonably meaty experience, and while the leftovers might not last that long, you’ll probably be jumping right in for another try. It looks good, there’s depth and photographing stuff is always fun, isn’t it? It’s free with IAP.
A fantastic mix of Minecraft style smashing and building and Dragon Quest monster smashing. It’s a huge game and you can team up with your friends to explore even more. It’s been pushed and smoothed for mobile and works brilliantly on touchscreen.
It took a while to get here, but Sokobond has finally landed on Android. It’s a puzzle from the developer behind A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, and it’s all about mixing molecules. There’s solid logic pushing the puzzle, and you’ll feel like a genius as you solve some of the trickier challenges.
The third shooter on this month’s list is an FPS roguelite with co-op play that involves blasting your way through hordes of enemies. Every time you play will be different, with various new gear and weapons to equip. There are different characters for us to play, it looks awesome, and the action is breathtaking at times.
A hack and slash dungeon crawler with some roguelite leanings. You play as a skeleton that can detach its head and throw it at enemies to deal massive damage. There’s some nice violence, and there’s also hours and hours of replayability.
A wonderful puzzle game from Zach Gage and Jack Schlesinger. It mixes ideas from a bunch of newspaper games and creates a special type of crossword that you will fall in love with. Daily puzzles and many challenges are waiting for you. There’s a lot of free stuff, but there’s a single subscription plan or IAP to get more.
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in the potion shops you enter in fantasy RPGs? Well, this game sort of answers that question. You run a potions shop, brewing a variety of tinctures and poisons to sell. It’s a neat mix of management and RPG and once you get started it’s hard to put down.
A welcome return to the classic beat-’em-up series. Multiplayer is on the way, but even without it, this one is pretty darn brilliant.
A kind of love letter to the legendary era of point-and-click adventures. If you like the likes of Monkey Island, you will definitely love this one. You investigate strange occurrences in an island community, explore beautiful hand-drawn backgrounds, and meet interesting characters.
