The holiday season is in full swing, and that means only one thing: you are in dire need of a great sports game. A sports game that would help you take a short break from watching endless reruns of Frozen, obsessing over how many Christmas cookies you can eat before your still somewhat visible abs decide to go on an extended vacation, and the freezing cold outside your cozy house or apartment.
Best Sports Games for Android
As always, we’re here to rescue. It took a while to go through all major sports games for Android that are currently available on Amazon Underground Apps Store, but the hard work is over and here are our top 5 picks.
How to Download Amazon Underground

Madden NFL Mobile
With the latest installment of Madden NFL Mobile, EA has decided to up the ante and give you even more gameplay modes to choose from. Now, you can participate in Daily Live Events, Head-to-Head challenges, Seasons, and newly designed Leagues.
You are the general manager, so it’s up to you to bear the primary responsibility on behalf of your team, develop an effective strategy, choose from current NFL stars, and, most importantly, show everyone who’s the best.
The game rewards dedication and players who are willing to immerse themselves into its complex gameplay mechanics, including Leagues, the Head-to-Head mode, and quick Spontaneous Challenges.
Soccer Stars doesn’t deliver realism or high-fidelity graphics—it delivers fun. Lots of it. You can pick up the game one minute and play against opponents from all over the world the next. The gameplay is simple, the physics are fun, and there’s always someone to play against.
If you don’t have an internet connection, that’s no problem either; cunning AI opponents won’t fail to challenge your soccer skills.
A note to our European readers: Yes, the game is about football.

Described as “the best bowling game ever,” Bowling King is the perfect blend of realistic bowling action with cheesy Las Vegas-inspired bowling courses, challenges, and fun mini games. The game features more than 60 different bowling balls, bowling alleys from around the world, intuitive tap-and-swipe controls, multi-language support, and over 120 achievements.
But the main attraction is the excellent 1-on-1 real-time multiplayer game mode, where you challenge real opponents to claim the title of the Bowling King.
