Mobile games have come a long way since the past few years. The concept of mobile gaming started off with the original Snake, and has now evolved into a million dollar industry. We’re seeing several desktop games being rebooted for the Android platform, while a handful of original Android games are pushing the limits further. One of the most popular genres today is crime solving, or some form of it. We are going to look at some of the best crime solving or police chase games available for Android. These games don’t always give you the chance to be on the right side of the law, but that’s not necessarily a problem since these are only games.
There are a number of police chase games available for Android, and we’re going to talk about five of them today. Not all of them will involve violence, as some are merely chase oriented games. In any case, we strongly recommend you to check out these five games if you haven’t already. When it comes to games, the more options you have, the better.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
One of the most popular police chase games on PC and consoles, GTA: San Andreas has been available on Android for quite some time. If you’re looking for a classic game where you get chased by cops all the time, you can’t do better than GTA: San Andreas. The game has several levels, ensuring you stay hooked to the game for a while. It’s a free roaming game, so you’re not required to stick to the course all the time. All these factors and the fact that it’s tailored for the mobile platform makes for a thoroughly enjoyable experience for the customers.
The game has been available for quite some time now, so it’s not new by any means. You will have to shell out $6.99 for the game, and that’s pretty much it. There are no hidden in-app purchases or ads to be dealt with, so once you pay the $7, you can enjoy the game to your heart’s content. The graphics is in line with the original PC game, but has been altered to fit the mobile platform. It could help to have a modern day smartphone to run the game smoothly.
Highway Getaway: Police Chase
This one is a highly addictive police chase game that has a simple set of controls and gameplay. You can play both as the police or as the criminal evading the cops. The rush and the gameplay offers here is second to none, making this one of the best and simplest cop chase games available on the Play Store. This particular offering comes from Vivid Games, which is known for a handful of popular titles. Playing the game is simple and only requires a tap or swipe gesture to control your vehicle.
The game also offers Facebook integration to compete with your friends. The developers have made sure that the users are not left wanting thanks to the use of HD graphics in the game. Users have nearly 200 high intensity missions to choose from, so there’s never going to be a dull moment with this game. Overall, Highway Getaway is a pretty sweet game to have if you’re a fan of conventional car chases. The game is free to download, although you will have to deal with ads. There are in-app purchases to help you progress further in the game. We highly recommend this game if you don’t mind shelling out a few extra bucks.
Pako – Car Chase Simulator
Perhaps one of the simplest car chase games out there, Pako is set in a confined space where you’re required to evade the police for as long as you can before crashing. The goal is to keep running away for as long as possible and get yourself on the leader boards. The game can get pretty addictive quickly, and the amount of in-game additions makes it a pleasure to play. You will have to contend with zombies and tanks on your path, which adds more excitement to the chase. The controls are pretty easy with just two buttons, along with a quick restart button. You do not need to learn the controls beforehand to play this game, which means you can simply download the game and get started.
The game runs on credits, although users can earn credits by watching video ads. There is no way you can skip ads as the game doesn’t appear to have in-app purchases. Overall, Pako is a decent game to have in your library, especially if you’re looking for time to kill and don’t want to invest in a complicated game. You will require a smartphone or tablet running Android 2.3 or higher to play this particular game.
Police Horse Criminal Chase 3D
This is a slightly unconventional take on police chase games, as you’re riding on top of a horse to chase down criminals instead of a proper vehicle. This basically means the pace of your chases are going to be a lot more intense as you will have to catch criminals who are mostly on their feet. It’s a different experience altogether, and definitely worth checking out. It is worth mentioning that the developers have designed the city with a lot of detail, which adds to the overall experience for the customers. The app is free to download, but comes with ads. There are in-app purchases here as well. You will need to have an Android 4.0 device to play this game.
Police Motorbike Simulator 3D
This game gives you the ability to improve your motorbike skills. There’s no catching criminals involved here, but you still get to ride around in a police motorbike. The game is developed by i6 Games, which is known for simulators. The game is pretty barebones when you think about it, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You don’t get to tweak around the controls too much, but the motorbike offered in the game comes with features nitrous, allowing you to boost up the speed significantly. Although there are no criminals to catch here, the ramps laid around the city help you perform amazing stunts on the go. This is a slightly different game compared to the others mentioned on this list, which works in its favor. The app is compatible with a number of older devices as well, so as long as you have a smartphone packing Android 2.3 or higher, you’re good to go. The game is free to download, but there are ads on board.
