The best sports games on Android

Maybe you think it's time to get back into sports? Saying it is good, doing it is better. But due to lack of time (or will), it's not always easy to adapt your schedule to go running, so why not settle for your smartphone screen? Here's a selection of the best sports games on Android. Unfortunately, you will not benefit from the positive effects of sport on your health, but you will have just as much fun.

FIFA Soccer

If you are a big fan of soccer, you probably know about this. FIFA Soccer is a good game series that benefits from the full partnership with the official football association. The gameplay is quite pleasant, it may take a few minutes to get familiar with the controls but it remains very simple overall. Find more than 10,000 players from more than 500 licensed teams, win cups, make transfers... it's a complete experience.

However, there are two major flaws: the first is the need to be always connected to the Internet, the second is the size of the application itself, which requires the installation of new data once the application is downloaded (about 1GB).

Zombies, Run!

If you want to reconcile play with actual sport, then this one is for you. The principle is simple: you have to run away to escape the zombies that are hunting for you. Just start running and let the sound of the game guide you. It can get scary! If you don't like running without a goal, then this can help gamify your experience and have some more fun with your exercise.

PES Club Manager is for those who prefer to wear the coach's cap rather than those who like to run on the field. The first thing to do is to start your club and then find a player to start. Then you can start to take an interest in the championship: train your players, manage your sponsors, be strategic. It's a good application to see football differently.

NBA 2K19

Basketball fans can't miss NBA2K's new album. NBA 2K19 for mobile offers new features, including a new story mode. The gameplay has also been improved with simpler controls. Compared to previous years, the progression is much easier than previous versions and requires less hand to pocket, but the game has some drawbacks that may discourage some players, such as the lack of multiplayer mode.

8 Ball Pool

Miniclip made this game and the least we can say is that it is as good as it is popular. You can hone your skills in the training arena, once you get to the level you will be able to defeat players from all over the world in 1-on-1 or by participating in tournaments to win exclusive trophies and billiard cues! Of course, if your friends also play this game, you can easily challenge them with your Miniclip or Facebook account.

Another interesting feature: the opponents are of an equivalent skill level, so as to ensure a fair challenge. 8 Ball pool also allows you to customize your table and cue. You earn chips as you go along, which will allow you to enter higher level games where the stakes are higher, or to buy new items in the shop.

Rugby manager

Just like PES CLUB MANAGER, this game aims to make you a real manager of your team. Don't imagine that you will be able to play a specific player, or lead your players manually on the field, this is about strategy and preparation. One great strength of the game for some: the game is multiplayer and is also available on a web browser.

Grand Mountain Adventure

If skiing doesn't suit the season, you will always be able to do it virtually any time of year. This open-world skiing game offers five mountain resorts to explore (only the first one is free, the others will have to be paid for). To put it simply, it's like being in a ski resort. You can do all the runs or go off-piste. Many figures and challenges are on the menu. However, a word of advice: beware of avalanches and bears!

    Unless you previously played FIFA Mobile, I would strongly suggest not playing it. It has this weird thing that makes scoring hard if you do to well in multiple matches. Plus, whenever they had the big update of the year, they deleted my data. :/

    Oh, this stuff is way worse with NBA Live Mobile, so maybe you will enjoy FIFA Mobile. Just personal observation.

    Vector(which is free runner game) is one of my favorite sports related game on Android. It was so thrilling to dodge all those guards and get back to safety.
