1. Tomb Raider II
Major props goes out to Square Enix for porting the finest games in its library over to Android devices. The 1st Tomb Raider is playable, so it makes a ton of sense to bring over the sequel. You’ll command the world explorer Lara Croft once again and go on a quest for the famed Dagger of Xian. The textures have been cleaned up a bit, so this gives the game some new life as far as its overall visuals are concerned. Defend yourself against all global threats and enjoy one of Lara Croft’s earliest adventures.
2. LEGO Scooby-Doo Haunted Isle
Scooby-Doo, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Fred have some new horrific adventures to throw themselves into.

3. Dungeon Crash
Fantastical RPG’s are synonymous with the action game genre. Dungeon Crash employs elements of RPG battles, world building, party construction and more.
