Chances are, most of the games on your phone need an internet connection to even fire up. It doesn’t affect you all that much because your phone is constantly connected. However, what about those times where you don’t have a signal? Sometimes, you just want to play games offline.

It can be frustrating trying to start games (ones as simple as jigsaw puzzles, mind you) only to get the “Can’t connect to server” message when without a signal. Because of times like these, it’s important to have apps that can be played with or without a connection. Here’s a list of the best offline games you can play on Android.

There are a lot of titles that add their own flair to the match-3 game genre, and Best Fiends is one of them. The match-3 gameplay is pretty basic, but the real magic lies in the creative cast of characters that you collect along the way.

As you match the symbols, depending on the color, the characters will attack enemies on the top of the screen. Stringing together longer combos leads to stronger attacks, so you’ll want to match as many symbols as you can.

Data Wing

  • Download Cost: Free
  • In-App Cost: $0
  • Size: 71MB
  • Google Play Rating: 4.8 stars out of 5

Data Wing is a pretty simple game in nature, but it’s pleasantly challenging. The story goes that you play a small program whose purpose is to deliver data from one point to another on a computer. You have to navigate your way through pathways in cyberspace to get to your destination.

Data Wing is also a really witty game. Throughout the game, the computer system communicates with you and tells you what’s what. Its dialogue is really witty and funny and honestly cracked me up from time to time.

If you’re looking for in-app purchases, then you’re going to be disappointed. There are no in-app purchases, nor is there an energy system. All you do is play the game and progress through the levels.

The only currency in the game is gold coins, and you use those coins on hints. You earn coins by completing stages, but you can also buy them with real money. There are ads between stages, but you can pay $9.99 to get rid of them.

  • Google Play Rating: 4.3 stars out of 5

Cat Shoot War is one of those games that don’t bog you down with story or character development. You’re a cat with a gun who’s shooting monsters; that’s the story. You go through wave after wave monsters that you need to shoot and destroy.

You start off by buying your first weapon and upgrading it to a certain level. After that, you’re thrown into the action. You use the on-screen joystick to move and you hold down on the shoot button to fire at enemies.

You earn coins as you progress throughout the game (which look oddly similar to Bitcoin), but you can also buy them with money. If you don’t want to buy them, you can watch ads to earn free coins.
