10 great free games for Android that you can play without an internet connection
Have you ever found yourself in a place where there was no internet, like on an airplane, a remote rural area, or a train going through the mountains? What if you wanted to play a game on your Android smartphone and waste your time in a fun way? Unfortunately, many smartphone games today require an internet connection, for you to play them. Luckily, you can still find some Android games that work offline. All you have to do is install them when you have internet access, and then you can enjoy them anytime, anywhere, as long as your smartphone’s battery has some power left. Here are the most fun free games for Android that do not need an internet connection:
1. Plague Inc.
Plague Inc. is an Android game that is developed by the famous team at Miniclip.com. Your purpose is to create a plague that infects the world and kills everyone living on Earth. You start by creating a pathogen like a bacteria, a virus, fungus or parasite, and then you have to evolve it to make it more infectious, more deadly, but also harder to cure by laboratories all over the world. This is a different kind of a post-apocalyptic game that combines strategy with what the company names a “terrifyingly realistic simulation.” Plague Inc. is an addictive game that does not require an internet connection, and you will have fun killing the entire world while on a long flight. :)

2. Into the Dead
Into the Dead is a post-apocalyptic game in which you run to escape from the hoards of zombies that have overrun the entire world. You are a survivor, and you must dodge all the undead that are trying to eat you. The end is always the same, as you cannot escape forever and you ultimately die every time. The question is, however, how long will you survive before you become the main course on a zombie’s plate? It is a great question to answer while crossing the country in a lengthy train ride. :)
