A few years back only Racing and Shooting games were popular, and rest went straight down to the offensive category, but things have changed after the Android, and iOS smartphones started to get into the hands of users, who are looking for interesting stuff online.

I have played several games on smartphones, which includes different types of a category such as Shooting, Racing, Mind games, and Simple old games.
However, I have never come across such a game that has put me in a situation to plan different strategies for a different type of players.
Clash Royale is a traditional game and the main reason why I prefer the players to try it because it does test your mind both Offensive and Defensive. One mistake can turn the tables of your game, and anything goes in the match.

Game type: Multiplayer (You can play the game with the 2G connection as well.)
File size: 50MB+ (No need to update the game at all.)
2. Clash of Clans
The developers of Clash Royale and Clash of Clans is Supercell (Developer name), who has designed the game with his heart.
The time and game changing events are planned carefully, and the balance between the cards are outstanding.
The Clash of clans game is all about a city that is going to face an entourage that is going to invade your small town, and you have to protect it with the selected warriors (cards).
You must protect your Village or City by placing warriors, who have various strengths and weakness, which are equally balanced.
It isn’t that easy game because the invaders are going to attack you from four ends. In simple words, you are going to face real deal.
Game type: Multiplayer.

4. Plague Inc
The most underrated game in the list, which is extremely popular in the Western country and Europe because of the concept.
The game was developed in 2012 which the primary goal to wipe out the entire human race. Yup, you read it right, the game concept is to eliminate the human race out of the question.
You get all the necessary tools to do so, and the challenging part is that you don’t have much time to do it. The plague is curable, and you have to eliminate those who are close to finding the cure.
File Size: 1000MB+.
Updates: Once in a month.
Small villages always face various threats through out the cycle, which is common in the past. The game concept is dated during the barbarians, where they have to face several threats back during their days.
The game is all about protecting your small village from different threats, which requires a lot of thinking and strategy because you need to deploy your comrades sharply so that you can protect while attacking the Dinosaurs and Witch etc.
6. Asphalt 8 Airborne
Not many players would be interested and considered as the Strategy game, but when I had played the game when I got my first Android smartphone, I would recommend to those who are casual players.
Asphalt 8 has some cars and tracks, which are incredibly intimidating. Handling the speed and the turns you have to make in the single player are decent.
Here comes the interesting part, the Multiplayer. Any player can become a professional in the single player, but the story is entirely different in the Multiplayer.
You go against the ten to fifteen players, who are skilled in handling the cards and know where to use turbo will leave you behind in the tenth position.
File size: 1.4GB + 700MB Multiplayer files.

You have five types of shooters like Breachers, Pointman, Assaulters, Stealth, and Shield. When you combine the team with the 65 weapons available in the shop, you can pick those which you think is the best course of action.
