It’s often hard to decide what you want to spend your hard earned cash on! I know when I get paid, I don’t want to put that money towards games I am not going to enjoy. On the other hand, so many free to play games have loads of ads, in-app purchases at every turn, and are bombarded with stuff that I just don’t want to buy.
So, I take into consideration what everyone else is purchasing! In this list, we are focusing on the top 10 paid games on Android, in the UK - as that’s where we are from. These are the games that everyone else has invested money into, the games that other people seem to think are perfect to spend their cash on.
Many of these games have been in top spots for quite some time - that means that people really do seem to love (and continue loving) these games. If you’re looking for some suggestions on how to spend your payday bundle, check out this list and see what catches your eye!
Minecraft has made its way on every single platform there is - and your phone is not an exception! This game is an open-world, adventure game where you can really do whatever you want. You can build, mind, fight monsters, upgrade weapons, discover abandoned buildings, find villagers and so much more. The game works well on mobile and makes sense as a premium title!
Of course, Football Manager 2020 Mobile is on this list - and it's moved up this month! Sports players do love playing on mobile too. In this game, you are building up your dream team, winning games and titles, and trying to get to the top! There are over 60 leagues from 21 of the top nations in football - so you can find players you actually enjoy seeing play and enlist them to your team! You have the power to bring a team to fame!
Personally, I would never buy Monopoly on my phone, but as it’s a household name, it seems like many people have! I guess since it's nearly Christmas, maybe people were getting it to play with their family. This version of Monopoly has animations, different maps, and online multiplayer modes so you don’t even need to have friends to frustrate when playing the game. There are different house rule sets, if you want to play rules similar to those you grew up with - and you won’t be able to lose any of the pieces if they are digital.
Bloons TD 6 is an amazing tower defense game, which is why it’s sat at the top of the paid list for quite some time. You are able to create towers, upgrade them, unlock heroes, change your abilities and so much more - providing a lot of strategy and fun to be had within this game! Bloons TD 6 also boosts over 49 original maps - with 3D objects that can block your line of site, so you’ll need to be aware and crafty to stay on top. Unlike free to play tower defense games, you won’t find a load of in-app purchases in this one!
Recently released, Star Wars: KOTOR II has made it's way to the top ten, but it's easy to see why. This game is being called a perfect port to mobile after being an award winning PC game. This RPG takes you into the Star Wars universe, where you can build a team, make important choices and determine your own destiny. A game full of light savers, dark lords and everything else you'd expect to see in a Star Wars game.
Stardew Valley is another new game that we've seen climb the leader board, probably because of recent updates and announcements for the developer himself. Or maybe because people want an escape from the cold. Either way, Stardew Valley is a lovely farming simulator without any in-app purchases and with plenty of mystery. This game allows you to get to know the villagers around you, to take on the story and become a staple of the town, and to participate in events in the world. It's a seriously fun game that I actually play quite a bit.
Geometry Dash is a platformer that has been around for so, so long. Geometry Dash combines rhythm and action into a platformer, where you must jump, fly and flip your way through level after level, avoiding obstacles as you go. The game also features a level creator so you can create and share your own levels - and play thoughts made by others - meaning you will never run out of content!
Another board game made it into the top 10 this week! I guess the holidays really does bring out board games, even in digital form. The Game of Life 2 is a digital board game where you get to make decisions about your life, spin a wheel, take on events that happen and continue your life in the hopes of having one that scores the most points. Unlike the board game, there are a bunch of different worlds, characters and cut scenes to be enjoyed - and you won't loose any pieces either.
Cluedo has made it's way onto the list, and as I have previously stated, it's probably because board games are popular this time of year. Cludeo is the most serious board game currently on this list, as it's a murder mystery game where you need to find out who killed who, with what, and in what room. The mobile version is very similar to the board game, with some mobile touches. You'll need to solve the game fast as only one will know the true details of the crime first and win.
Rounding out our list this month is Monster Hunter Stories - an RPG that has made it's way onto the list and is currently discounted until January 18th. The world itself is beautiful, with massive monsters, so many creatures that you can fight or ride, and some cool looking characters to meet and understand. There is a lot of story, action, and adventure in this game - perfect for getting into and forgetting the world.
