Best paid games without free versions available

By: on: Oct 04, 2012

There's something that nobody likes to do: pay. In addition, we Android users are badly used to not paying for anything, to live from demo and trial and lite and ad-supported version ever after. Even some one you knaves, come here to AndroidZoom to read a review on a game you are already interested in and then leave and check how lucky you are finding that game elsewhere.

However, there are a lot of games worthy of your hardly earned pocket money. It would be too long to name them all, but we have tried to make a short yet illustrative list of apps we can assure you won't get disappointed. Have for sure we are not being paid to recommend any of these.

These five games below are so outstanding that there isn't any doubt. In addition, some developers have sales now and then, so if you pay attention to our "Sale" tab on our homepage or you follow them on Twitter, it's easy you can get them for only a part of their price.

We have also tried to choose games from different genres so you know where you can put your money better and be up to date of five of the best games out there. We haven't included other great paid games because they have free versions available, and we preferred to make a list about games you may be more afraid to check out.

Total War Battles

SEGA of America

TW Battles is a military strategy board game

Total War: Battles comes backed up by the well-known, award winner and critically acclaimed Total War franchise. As it's an adapted version to mobile devices, don't expect 3D real time sieges and battles as you had in Rome, Medieval or Empire. Total War Battles brings military strategy to a sort of board game set up in the Shogun Era. Units include ashigaru, sohei and samurai. There are even ninjas, if you know where to look at.

Asphalt 7: Heat

Gameloft

Successful sequel to Asphalt 6

Asphalt 7 is like Asphalt 6. This obviousness comes to say that when a franchise arrives to its seventh game, it should mean something, and surely something good.

And Asphalt 7 is, with little margin of error, one of the best arcade driving games for a mobile device ever. Beyond how many cars, many tracks, many whatever there are, it's absolutely fun, it's love at first race. It's a game enjoyable since the very first minute -no annoying driving licenses and such- to that sad moment, a lot of hours of gameplay later, when you have unlocked and won everything. However, then you realize that you can go multiplayer and then, oh then, then we will see who actually the best Asphalt rider is.

Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies

Glu

Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies is the first CoD title that hits Android

Yes, we also believed that Call of Duty games deserved something better. Yes, zombies is exactly what we were looking for. Therefore, if you have one of the best First Person Shooter on one hand, and zombies on the other, it can only mean that you are going to play one of the most intense, thrilling and scary games ever (if you were looking for scary yet non related to zombies games, try here)

Runic Rumble

Strategy First

Runic Rumble is an original mobile-native fighting game controlled with gestures

Runic Rumble teaches us a lot of things worthy to be learnt. First, that the old concept of one vs one fight will never die; secondly, that mobile devices bring a lot of options that require bold developers to explore them.

Runic Rumble is a 2D fighting game where you must use gestures to cast spells in magical one vs one battles. In short, it's one of the most fun fighting games ever. It's so fun that we are seriously considering to call Capcom and urge them to change next Street Fighter's gameplay.

And one more little thing you know we always like to highlight: it's been integrally developed by an indie team, because great ideas and hard work use to meet in little hidden places. Like Australia, for example.

The Bard's Tale

inXile entertainment

A complete overhaul of "Bard's tale" tale

About Bard's Tale, there's a long review on it, available as soon as you tap or click on the link below. Whatsoever, it's a great adventure game, perhaps suited to a more adult audience rather than teenagers because it has an out-of-graph cleavage/fire-breathing giant rats ratio, comparable only to its loathsome drunken songs slash fourth wall jokes statistic.
