The craze for games is not a new thing, actually it was more intense when there were simple consoles of SEGA . Such gaming consoles of 80’s and 90’s were highly popular among the gaming enthusiasts. Although now due to the abundant availability of highly personal gaming console in the form of Android phones, the craze has not been the same. But even then there are people can sacrifice their valuable time in searching and playing those classic games, however if it’s even just for the sake of old times.
Following are some of the best classic games that are available on Google play store.
Sonic The HedgeHog
There would be hardly anyone reading this post, never heard about Sonic. Sonic is the iconic, legendary classic game that SEGA once launched with great success. This is one of those games that are equally popular among the fans through out the world. Sega who had announced that it will revive sonic with Android platform has launched the Sonic Hedgehog. Although some small timely up gradations has been made to be suited for Android, yet the up gradations are so minor that you would not feel playing a different thing from the one you had played years ago on Sega.
Another classic game of Sega who has millions fans of all ages is Crazy Taxi. The crazy taxi was unique and unconventional idea of its time that people had not seen before in a game. Although such concepts are very common in today’s mobile phone gaming, yet it was a novel approach of its time. In this, you just need to pick up passengers from specific locations that will show up in the map and make sure that the passengers reach their destination in time. This is a great fun for new Android tablet devices .
Doom 3 was the iconic game of past decade that had created a new milestone for today’s high graphics FPS. The standard to which the shooting games of today’s have reached, is because of the contribution of games like Doom in setting great benchmarks. Doom was famous for its full of blood story line and the excitement was uncommon for the players. Now although it may not excite you at the level which it used to, but for those who had started their gaming with Doom will surely love to play it again. However it is good enough to worth your time, even if you don’t belong to Doom 3 generation.
One of the most famous, so famous that has appeared in several different movies too. From it you can get better idea how huge it’s popularity was in the old times. Pac man is a legend of classic games and has returned to makes its debut on Android. It is so amusing and engaging that even the younger generations would not feel it they are playing something of their parent’s childhood. The term addictive game is new for Pac Man lovers and was not exist at the time of Pac Man, yet perfectly suits it. It was known to be so addictive that If one starts playing it, he finds difficult to keep track of the time.
Tetris used to be one of the most popular game of 90’s and now it has been brought to the Android platform. With the benchmark of mobile gaming, Tetris meets all standards. Tetris has several different levels to get the user engage while also bears multiplayer modes. You can play it on different modes as it includes Marathon and Explorer Mode.
How can we forget Donald duck when talking about classic games? It has brought the same retro style graphics to the smartphones. Although it has not anything exceptional when it comes to its 2D graphics yet those who wants to revive their old memories with the character will surly like it. Because only those people would agree to pay for the price of $ 10 that comes with the game.
The king of fighters 98
The king of fighters 98 is an amazing combat game that used to be my favorite. In fact all the king of fighters series was amazing but this was something outstanding among all. It is simple to play, you have to select three fighters each with it’s separate lifeline. You will fight against another group of three players but one by one. The combat will involve three players in a single fight, where each ends with the end of it’s lifeline. This is a great fun when played against real time players in multiplayer mode rather as a single player. The king of fighters 98 has better graphics than any other classic game. And a great choice for those who thinks fighting games are something they must try.
Tomb Raider was 1996 pioneer in 3D with its action adventure genre. It has full of challenges, adventure and guns. This is what all gamers want to have. Tomb Raider is about wandering into ancient temples and mysterious places. Although this is the only in our list with 3D graphics yet that’s the negative perspective of the game. Yes! Because it belongs to the time line when 3D was in its initial stages and have not developed well. And therefore, while playing on Android the controls would not be convenient enough like for most of the games we play today. Otherwise it is a nice choice with $1 price tag.
Dragon’s lair is the oldest of all in our list even something before the retro graphics. This is entirely animation based but only that kind of animation graphics you usually see in today’s Android games. It seems like you are watching a cartoon created by the makers of Scooby Doo. That’s what comes into your mind when you first play it.
