The King of Fighters 98
- Multiplier fighting
- 3 players / each team
- Fighters with super powers
This is an amazing combat game that used to be my favorite. In fact all the king of fighters series were amazing but this was something outstanding among all. It is simple to play, you have to select three fighters each with its 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 its lifeline. This is a great fun when played against real-time players in multiplayer mode rather as a single player. The king of fighters has better graphics than any other classic game. And a great choice for those who thinks fighting games are something they must try.

- Puzzle adventure role playing
- Pioneer in 3D
- Explore ancient temples
Tomb Raider was 1996 pioneer in 3D with its action adventure genre. It has full of challenges, adventure and guns. This is what all the gamers want to have. It 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.
