Who never needed a good game when they didn't have internet? The lack of an online connection is one of the saddest moments for those who are used to accessing social networks and even playing online games with their friends. The moment is tough, but there is always light at the end of the tunnel: In this case, the offline games present on our smartphones, whether Android e iOS.

And it was with these saviors in mind that we decided to translate the article from the MakeUsOf website that listed the 20 best games to play without internet. Come on?!

1. Alto's Odyssey

Without Internet? No problem! The 20 Best Offline Games for Android and iOS

At first glance, this looks like just another endless runner. But play Alto's Odyssey for a while and you'll realize there's something about it that makes it impossible to put down.

Maybe it's the graphics and the music. Endless runners are often frenetic, but this game bucks the trend by making it a calming, calming experience. You'll feel relaxed as you slide through the sand dunes, jump for points, avoid obstacles, and perform backflips and double backflips for style bonuses.

Alto's Odyssey doesn't bring anything new to the world of runners, but it's a lot of fun. That's why it's one of the best free offline games for Android.

2. Chess: Really Bad Chess

At first glance, this looks like just another endless runner. But play Alto's Odyssey for a while and you'll realize there's something about it that makes it impossible to put down.

3. Mazes & More

Solving a maze is complicated because of its simplicity. Mazes & More ups the ante on the classic game with some devious twists.

For example, in Darkness mode, you can see the maze at the beginning. But then everything goes dark except for a small spotlight on you, and you have to go to the exit. Try other modes like ice floor where you end up sliding ahead of where you wanted to go, or the self-explanatory time trial mode and traps mode.

If you want a simple, old-fashioned maze-solving game, there's always the Classic mode. Each mode has many levels to keep you entertained until your connection comes back.

Genre: Puzzles

Requirements: 4.4 Android

4. Once Upon a Tower

Once Upon a Tower turns many elements of the game upside down. Instead of a prince rescuing a princess from a tower, the prince is dead, and the princess is kicking some ass with a sledgehammer to escape the dragon. And instead of climbing a tower, she's digging.

On her way, she'll have to fight monsters of all kinds, from ogres to spiders that can climb walls. Then there are the traps that come out of nowhere. If that wasn't enough, she needs to be quick, or the dragon will destroy everything with its fire breath. She doesn't forget about the other enemy: gravity itself.

Collect coins and power-ups when you can; you will need them to pass the levels to escape the tower. Once Upon a Tower is a lot of fun and seemingly endless, making it one of the best offline Android games on the market.

Requirements: 5.0 Android

5. Jungle Marble Blast

Unfortunately, the classic Zuma doesn't work without an internet connection, but some of its many imitations do. Among them, I liked Jungle Marble Blast the most.

The graphics aren't that smooth, but that's not a significant complaint. Gameplay is as fun as ever. Tap anywhere on the screen to shoot; tap the beetle to switch between the two colored orbs you have. Shoot the orbs at the chain that surrounds the map to create streaks of three or more.

And when possible, grab these power-ups to send the current back, turn a large chunk into a color, or blast them into oblivion.

Jungle Marble Blast fits perfectly into the group of the best offline games for Android. It's small, long and free.

Genre: Arcade

Requirements: 4.4 Android

6. Quizoid

These big smart multiplayer games will not work offline. Quizoid is about challenging yourself, not someone else.

Like other apps of this type, Quizoid asks a question with multiple answers and you have to choose the right one. But since it's you against the AI, there are a few more game modes. For example, you can play 20 questions with the computer, or you can play a timed round to answer as many as you can.

Quizoid features over 7.000 trivia questions in 17 categories such as entertainment, sports, science, politics, history and more. Unfortunately, category-based quizzes are only available in the paid professional package.

Genre: reasoning

Requirements: 5.0 Android

7. Action: Tank Hero: Laser Wars

Tank Hero: Laser Wars doesn't appear in the usual "offline games" collections, although it is among the best offline games you'll find on Google Play.

You play the titular Tank Hero, taking out all the other tanks with your laser cannon. In each level you have to destroy all other tanks on the map. Top-down shooter makes you control your tank with a virtual joystick, while you can tap anywhere on the screen to shoot.

Of course, it's not that simple. As you progress, you will encounter different types of tanks, power-ups and fiendish mazes that make your task challenging. But remember, lasers hit walls, so use that to your advantage.

Genre: Action

Requirements: 2.3 Android

8. Puzzle: Sudoku

The Play Store is full of Sudoku games, and many of them also work offline. Fassor Sudoku is not objectively superior; it's just what I like best and it works perfectly.

This Sudoku does the basics right, which is all you want sometimes. There are four skill levels and a timer to test how quickly you can finish each type. One of Fassor's highlights is that you can write multiple approximate numbers in a cell – but be warned, this incurs a 30 second penalty.

You can check that you've resolved everything correctly so far at any time, but again, there is a penalty for doing so. These time penalties increase, ruining your overall score. And when you reconnect to the Internet, that's what your friends will see.

9. Shooter: Smash Hit

Smash Hit was one of the most addictive games of 2014, and it still stands as a guaranteed good time. It's a little weird to call it a shooter, but it's essentially what it is and it's among the best offline mobile games.

It plays from a first-person perspective and requires you to throw steel balls at glass objects to smash them to pieces. Building a chain of successful hits and taking out all the cups gives bonuses, such as increasing the number of steel balls you throw simultaneously.

All the while, you slowly progress through the levels, and the pace increases as you progress. Make sure you don't get hit by any glass objects and you'll win the game in no time. But it's not as easy as it looks.

Genre: Shooter/Action
Size: 77M
Requirements: 2.3 Android

Download: Smash Hit (free in-app purchases available)

10. Racing: Traffic Rider

Once you're off the information highway of the Internet, go to a different virtual highway. Get on your bike in Traffic Rider and dodge city traffic as you race to the finish line in first person.

Traffic Rider plays like an endless runner where you need to go faster and faster to reach the finish line without crashing. But the mission mode actually makes it a little more fun than other endless runners, as you can race with specific targets instead of just mindlessly zooming in.

You can even opt for other modes like time trial or a simple endless runner. Just make sure you get past mission mode first as it unlocks some cool superbikes to satiate your need for speed.

If you don't have 100MB of storage space for Traffic Rider, try the previous title from the same game developer, Traffic Racer. It's pretty good too, but it's restricted to just an endless runner and has no mission modes.

Genre: Cumshot

Requirements: 5.0 Android

11. Major Mayhem

It's hard to say how much fun Major Mayhem is. It is one of the fantastic Adult Swim mobile games with a long single player campaign.

You play as the title character, taking down a series of bad guys. The game is staged as a shooting gallery. Enemies come out of hiding and you tap to kill them (or drop bombs if you're really angry).

Enemies will also try to shoot you, so make sure Major Mayhem doesn't take too much damage. Earn bonuses for headshots, kills and cool kills, and upgrade your weapons when you can.

Genre: Action / Shooting

Requirements: 4.4 Android

12. Fighting: Shadow Fight 2

Since the days of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, one-on-one combat games have been a great way to pass the time. On Android, you should try Shadow Fight 2.

You will need to learn many moves to become a true warrior. The game has two action buttons (punch and kick) and a directional pad. Learn the combinations and soon you will be a fantastic ninja.

Shadow Fight's two-dimensional art style, with silhouettes instead of characters, adds to its charm. It's all about fighting here, not about any frills. An offline Android game worth trying!

13. Shadow Blade Zero

Kuro the ninja can become your new favorite gaming mascot. Nothing will stop you in your quest to find your teacher and deliver an important message. Enter the world of Shadow Blade and you will slash enemies and jump traps until you find your master.

Requirements: 2.4 Android

Download: Shadow Blade Zero (free in-app purchases available)

14.Crossy Road

much more addictive than you might think and it's impressively available for free despite the amount of work that went into it. The 8-bit pixel art style is beautiful.

You control a chicken that simply wants to cross the street. Tap to advance one track; slide in any direction to move that side. Avoid the cars on the highways, the creeks in your way and get to the safe green grass as fast as you can. And you need to move fast! You will go crazy trying to beat your own record.

Most importantly, even though it's repetitive, it never gets boring, so you can play for hours.

15. Leisure

Lazors came out at the top of a Reddit poll looking for the best offline games for Android. Start playing, and it's apparent why.

The game is intuitive but challenging. Each level starts with at least one laser active and one or more targets. You will also have a set of mirrors, glasses or other types of blocks to move around. Position them so the laser hits each target.

There are 280 levels to get through, and it gets harder as you progress.

16. Asphalt Nitro

Unlike the gigabytes its brethren need, Asphalt Nitro takes up just 110MB of space – and it works even on older hardware.

Nitro is a simplified version of the popular Asphalt car racing series. The graphics aren't that great, but the gameplay is solid. Get in your car, start racing and keep upgrading your ride. There are 125 levels of increasing difficulty for you to get through, which is a lot of racing time.

There are many good racing games out there, but they usually need an internet connection. Asphalt Nitro perfectly meets the “long, free, offline playtime” requirements. No wonder it was named one of the best free Android games so far.
