I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Pokemon Go is totally free and has no adverts. It even encourages you to go outside and explore.

    That’s the only mobile game i’ve ever been in to, and still am.

      Agreed, the best free game on iOS!!!

      Uuuumm… It’s NOT totally free, though. There are poke coins which can be purchased with real money and used to buy items.

      Yes, you don’t need to spend a dime to progress, but the same can be said of most mobile games in the “Free” category. However, those who are willing to cough up money get a significant advantage such that it becomes a bit Pay2Win. That is the big complaint with IAPs.

    Ehhh…Not a fan. These all look pretty “meh”. Mobile rubs me the wrong way most of the time due to their art style. It’s like they have to scream “this is fun, right!?!?” into our faces, the same tactic as in your face advertising…They don’t care about the experience, it’s all about the money and keeping you hooked. The visual style almost always reflects that, with very rare exception. The lack of art, story, and gameplay is…disturbingly bare.

    I really recommend ‘kerflux’
    It’s a very simple game, but it’s very satisfying to play.
    Free, and no ads.
    You are prompted to support the developer, but the prompt can be closed, and it will not ask you again.

    Pixel Dungeon from watabou is great if you’re into roguelikes.
    No ads, completely free and open source. The only IAP is to directly support the developer.
    There are also a bunch of different versions that I haven’t tried so I can’t speak about those.

    Stranger things is great. No adds no iap.

    I loved Defenders II, great game but drained my old phone’s battery like a bloodsucker 😛

  7. Magusar says:

    I recommend Minute Dungeon!
    A nice refreshing Rouge like.
    Little ad at the bottom with no intrusion. No microtransactions, very addictive!

  8. Wishie says:

    DATA WING! Completely free, no ads, *AMAZING* soundtrack, great fun with a few giggles.

    Doug Dug seems to be not available for Android

  10. jcags says:

    Extreme Road Trip 2 is very addictive and doesn’t bother you too much with ads.

    Great Little War Game / Great Big War Game

    Excellent turn by turn strategy games, you pay upfront like a console game.

  12. Zeke says:

    Ooooh games that don’t have too much ads. Because if there’s a thing a lot of free games and apps have these days, it’s too much ads. Free rouge like games with not too much ads is the way forward. 😀

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. Gotta proofread those article headlines… 😉

    I see a game named Defender, or Defender II, I’m thinking retro arcade, not tower defense.
