Rated the number one arcade game for a very long time on mobile I’m sure you’ll love this one if you haven’t already, but chances are you probably have. You play as a surfer and attempt to run as far as you possibly can away from the train security dodging and avoiding obstacles and incoming trains.
A fun addictive arcade game where you have to throw knives at a spinning object without throwing a knife at a previous knife you’ve already thrown or an existing pre-placed knife. You can collect different kinds of knives as you progress.

1945 Air force
Take control of a war plane and fly over an exciting battlefield with fighter jets, big planes and helicopters all trying to take you down. This action arcade game resembles the popular old school 1942 Arcade game and is packed with some new modernized features.
As you collect stars in this game the color of your ball changes. You can only pass-through obstacles with the same color as your ball. The stars you collect equates to your highscore. Sounds easy right? How many stars do you think you can collect in this unique arcade game?
This is possibly my favorite game on this list. Playing this game requires a lot of focus, concentration and timing. You have to shatter glass objects that stand in your way as you move further and further in the game. There are absolutely no ads in this game and it’s really fun and sometimes frustrating to play…especially when you’re trying to beat a highscore.
The classic Fruit Ninja arcade game. Slash your way through several kinds of Fruit and avoid hitting any bombs. Compete with others or enjoy satisfyingly slashing through Fruit in the arcade mode.

Classic Super Arcade 90 games
If you’re born in the 90s or simply love old school arcade games, then this is the emulator for you to download. You can play old school titles like Metal Slug now on your mobile device without inserting any coins. Simply watch an ad instead of inserting a coin and then have fun enjoying the games you used to have to pay to play per try.
This is a fairly new arcade game with a unique playstyle. You control a plant similar to Petey Piranha (From Mario) and attempt to collect coins and move upwards. Avoid obstacles as you grow your plant and try to get the highest score you can!
Crossy Roads is an extremely fun and addictive action arcade game. The objective in this game is to control your chicken (or other characters) avoiding cars, trains and other deadly objects for as long as you possibly can. Your highscore is determined by how far you can travel. This game is super fun to play and I highly recommend that you give it a try too.
If you’re looking for a challenging game then this is the game for you. You play as a paper ship attempting to avoid everything that comes your way. There are a couple of missions that get progressively harder as you complete them. This is possibly one of the hardest games I’ve ever played. If in the future there is ever a list on our website for the hardest games on mobile, this one is definitely going to be on it.
