15 best strategy games for Android
Another World is a port of an older game from the early 1990’s. You play the role of a scientist who ends up in another world. There, you’ll be chased by a wolf monster while you solve puzzles and try to find a way home. The game isn’t horror on its own, but the atmosphere and tension can be pretty scary. It also doesn’t help that this game will trap you if you don’t solve the puzzles properly. It’s a no holds barred kind of game. You can pick it up for $3.99 with no in-app purchases. It’s definitely one of the more underrated horror games.
Dead Effect 2
Price: Free with in-app purchases
Dead Effect 2 is a creepy sci-fi shooter. You play the role of one of three characters. Your goal is to level up, find new weapons, and defeat the bad guys. It features tons of alien bad guys, lots of dark corridors, and a 20-hour campaign mode to play through. The graphics are pretty good on their own. However, they do get a boost if you’re using an Nvidia Shield device. It’s not typically what you’d think of when it comes to horror games. However, it’s about as close to a horror shooter as it gets on mobile.
Distraint: Deluxe Edition
Price: Free / Up to $4.49
Distraint is one of the newer horror games. It features hand-drawn graphics and a simple premise. The controls are very simple and you should be able to learn them quickly. It doesn’t typically rely on classic horror elements like jump scares. Instead, it tries to creep you out with its story line. In fact, it bills itself as a psychological horror game. It’s a bit short and you should finish the game in a few hours. The Deluxe Edition is a bit more expensive than the normal version, but it includes a bunch of extra stuff.
