Many new mobile games require an Internet connection to play, like fun zombie shooter Dead Trigger 2 Dead Trigger 2: A Refined Shooter For The Casual Mobile Gamer Dead Trigger 2: A Refined Shooter For The Casual Mobile Gamer With Dead Trigger 2 developer Madfinger Games has made the sequel to one of the best mobile zombie-shooters easily accessible for the casual gamer and broken it down into bite-sized chunks. Read More . It’s unfortunate because there are times when it’s just not an option, like when you are on a long flight or if you are going to be on a road trip and need to keep your kids occupied in the back seat. Or when the zombie apocalypse comes, of course.

But don’t worry, we have 10 Android games that can be enjoyed for hours on end without a Wi-Fi hotspot nearby. Some of them are new, some are classics, and a few are games you may not have even heard of.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 (Free)

It’s won award after award and deservedly so. In fact, Plants vs. Zombies 2 Plants vs. Zombies 2: Does Going Free-To-Play Mean The Death Of The Series? Plants vs. Zombies 2: Does Going Free-To-Play Mean The Death Of The Series? Since EA has taken the reigns at PopCap, Plants vs. Zombies 2 has been released for free.

It perfectly matches addictive gameplay, fun graphics and increasing difficulty to keep you occupied for hours. Essentially a tower defense game, PvZ2 has more plants than the original, different zombies, and three cool new worlds to go time-hopping through. Plus, you can keep replaying the levels to collect stars and unlock more levels, so you’ll never tire of it.

Angry Birds Star Wars 2 (Free)

The Angry Birds series is a sure-fire winner when it comes to addictive gameplay, and you can’t go wrong with any of its different versions. I’d recommend you pick up Angry Birds Star Wars 2 because it’s got the best graphics, has over 30 different birds you can use, and features a total of 120 levels playing for the good guys as well as joining the Pork side. Apart from Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Rayman Fiesta Run, this was another title to make it to our list of the best Android games of 2013 Mobile Gaming Comes Of Age: Best Android Games In 2013 Mobile Gaming Comes Of Age: Best Android Games In 2013 Shooters, runners, arcade, racing, puzzles -- we show you the best games released in 2013 for just about every genre.

Rayman Fiesta Run ($2.99)

Much like Mario and Sonic, Rayman is a fun platform game that has been around since the 90s. But unlike the other two franchises, this one has successfully adapted to the world of touchscreen devices with the hit Rayman Jungle Fever and its follow-up, Rayman Fiesta Run. It’s a super fun game and has a lot of game-time to keep you busy—and it’s best played with headphones on and the sound cranked up!

Ridiculous Fishing ($2.99)

Ridiculous Fishing Ridiculous Fishing: Way More Than Just a Cloned Game [iOS] Ridiculous Fishing: Way More Than Just a Cloned Game [iOS] Ridiculous Fishing is a brilliant game, regardless of how many mistakes the developers made and how long it took to arrive on iOS. I can tell you right now it's an altogether better game than... Read More is good for a quick game while you’re waiting for something, and also good for a long, intense battle. The pixel-themed animation style is gorgeous, but you might struggle to run it smoothly on low-powered devices, like those with dual-core processors and low RAM. But most importantly, as you guide your fishing line to lower and lower depths to catch as many fish as possible, you will never know where the time went by.

Temple Run 2 (Free)

One of the biggest gaming hits on mobiles, Temple Run made endless runners popular. And its sequel, Temple Run 2, improves on every aspect Temple Run 2 Takes What You Loved About The Original & Makes It Better [iOS] Temple Run 2 Takes What You Loved About The Original & Makes It Better [iOS] Temple Run is one of those rare iOS games that went completely viral on the App Store.

The visuals are richer and more refined, the gameplay introduces new elements, and you can keep going as long as you can stay alive. At the moment, the highest score according to Record Setter is 1,458,685,422. Think you can beat that?

Defender II (Free)

A solid tower defense game for Android, Defender II has immense replay value as you upgrade your bow and arrow, get more magical elements to help you out, and build attack towers to guard your fort from the onslaught of monsters and magical creatures coming at you in waves. It’s one of the best Android games out there. The cartoon graphics are lovely, although the sound effects leave a bit to be desired. But on the bright side, you could safely play this on mute while listening to your music!

Flow Free (Free)

One of the coolest puzzle games ever made, Flow Free Jog Those Brain Cells With The Addictive Flow Free Puzzle Game [Android 2.2+] Jog Those Brain Cells With The Addictive Flow Free Puzzle Game [Android 2.2+] Read More is remarkable for how addictive it is despite its simplicity. All you have to do is connect two similar-coloured dots in a grid of squares. The only catch: you can’t cross wires. You won’t believe how difficult this gets over time. And Flow Free has perhaps the most number of levels any game has to offer, as you start with small 5×5 grids and work your way up to 14×14 grids.

Doublemill 2 (Free)

Just because you don’t want to go online doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in some multiplayer. Doublemill 2 is a gorgeous minimalistic game 6 Gorgeous, Minimalistic Android Games You'll Keep Coming Back To 6 Gorgeous, Minimalistic Android Games You'll Keep Coming Back To There is no better design for smartphones and mobile devices than minimalism. The medium's very nature requires limitations on screen space and power usage, so you really get the most bang-for-your-buck with modern designs -... Read More that replicates the board game Nine Men’s Morris—a tougher form of tic tac toe, if you will. The game’s rules are easy to understand, and once you get it, you can play it for hours. There are different difficulty levels to get through (and if you manage to beat the Grandmaster, you’ll have done better than me), but more important, you can also play the ‘Heads Up’ mode, which is a one-on-one game with another person played by passing the same device between the two of you.

Baseball Hero (Free)

How hard would it be to just swipe the right combination at the right time in the diamond of baseballs on your screen? Turns out, a lot harder than you think. And turns out, a lot more fun than you think! Baseball Hero is one of the best sports games on Android Get Sporty On Your Android With These 7 Free & Fun Games Get Sporty On Your Android With These 7 Free & Fun Games Sports are fun.

America’s national pastime lives up to its billing even on mobile screens!

He-man: The Most Power Game ($0.99)

“If you want to keep a kid occupied, put on some He-man.” My mom lived by this mantra when I was a kid, distracting me with the He-man cartoons. And it still holds true, only this time, you can use the He-man game on your tablet. It’s a platform action game that’s great for kids with its cartoony graphics and easy gameplay. Hack and slash your way through characters like Beastman and Merman to finally take down Skeletor once and for all!

    You guys are crazy the best offline game is mage and minions wHich is free and does not push advertising. Next is great big War game which cost 3 bucks. Others would be frozen front, heroes of destiny, and injustice by dc comics. I wish clash of clans was offline and other good online games. The good side of offline gAmes is no Internet connection aND you can enjoy them. The bad side is they are addicting and you will be more than willing to spend to progress later in the game. Zephoria is Awesome, but you have to buy each story line. It's actually the best app ever. It's like the original medal gear solid sneaky wise but implements the quick button tap like shenmue had. The game is like buying movies though. Play the entire story and your done.

      Pixel Dungeon is a small dungeon/RPG game but as in the title has pixel graphics and might not be what you're looking for.

    I really like the Temple Run and Angry Birds because both games are fun, thrilling and addicting. It wants you to pass all the levels before to stop playing.

    Color Sheep, Elder Sign, Swords and Sworcery, Magic: The Gathering 2014, Bard's Tale, pretty much any Popcap Cap, Eufloria, Worms and one ridiculously specific version of a BubbleShooter game that's not on the Play Store any more.

    I live in hope that someone will get around to porting Orcs Must Die to Android. The gameplay is well suited to a touch screen device and it's fun on my Surface Pro.
