Thanks to Coronavirus, a lot of people across the world and in India are having to stay at home. To stave off the boredom, nothing is as good as a round of some interesting video games. Below is a shortlist of quality games for android – the top of the line if you are looking for something that has more depth than the usual mobile release.

6 - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

This game was originally a PS1 hit - amongst the best platformers that you could find on Android

The Classic Konami title Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was released very recently on the Google Play Store. It is a unique 2D platformer, with non-linear gameplay, various puzzles, and exploration. Most of the maps would be locked until you acquire more tools and ability such as shapeshift to access those areas. The main campaign of the game should take about eight to nine hours to be completed – a decent time-waster, nigh impossible to complete in just one sitting.

5 - Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is a life/farming sim that can easily create hundreds of gameplay hours for players who are interested in the usual farming games.

Stardew gives you massive hours for your money – probably the most efficient purchase on this list.
