5 Fun Roadtrip Games For Networked Mobile Devices [Android]
So to help you add a bit of enjoyment to your traveling, I’d like to share five very cool mobile multiplayer, fun roadtrip games that I recently discovered. We’ve offered a few Android games before at MUO – make sure to check out Mark’s list of 5 games , Simon’s 3 brain teaser games , and Paul’s list of 5 multiplayer games .
Along the lines of Paul’s list, the following games are some that you can either play privately with your friends, or you can play them against other strangers across the world. With these cool multiplayer mobile games, you’ll never be left without someone to play a game with. There are almost always players online just waiting to go head-to-head with you.
Head To Head Racing
There are few games that are quite as blood-pumping as head-to-head racing. Cruising around curves and trying to cut off your opponent so that you can get out in front. Head to Head Racing is the game that you want loaded on your Android phone when you’re on the road with a friend.
You can pick vehicles from motorcycles to a sweet-looking sports car. The cool thing about racing in this game is that when you turn too sharp and for too long, you’ll start to peel out – the physics in the game are decent.
Win the race and rub it in your friend’s face! Download the game with this code:
Another game well worth a mention is a very addictive one called Wordfeud. If you like Scrabble, you’re going to absolutely love this multiplayer mobile game. When you launch a new game, you have the choice to either invite a friend to play via email (or username if they have a Droid). If you don’t have a friend to play with, then select “Play with random opponent.”
Once you start playing this game, you’ll be hooked – consider yourself warned. Like Scrabble, certain squares offer some major points if you land on them, like DL is double-letter, DW is double word and TL is triple letter.
Aim for those hot-spots and outscore your opponent with your brilliant manipulation of the alphabet! You get just about 80 to 90 tiles to play on the board, and whoever has the most points once the tiles runs out wins. Download the game with the code below and have fun!
This mobile multiplayer game is a level-oriented game where the more you play, the more points you accumulate and increase in rank. You start out as Cadet, but the goal is to work your way up to Space Admiral.
Click on “Duel” to fight a friend via any local Wi-Fi network, or you can click “Battle” to compete with players on the larger multiplayer network via your mobile Internet connection. There’s pretty much no learning curve if you’ve ever played Battleship before.
Just take turns taking potshots within the grid and hope that you make direct hits against your opponent’s ships before they wipe out all of yours! Download this game using the following code.
Cestos 2 Party Time
is a mobile social network where you can play games with other people that are online. Most of the games involve some form of playing marbles. Beyond the games, you can also visit the chat room or challenge from 1 to 3 other players in the game area.
In just about every game, you aim your marbles in the direction you want them to go, and try to hit certain spots on the game board. It’s a lot of fun, and the more people that are playing the more chaotic it can get.

Speaking of parties – have you ever been to one of those parties where everyone played a really fun game of Pictionary and everyone spends most of the time laughing because no one can draw? Well, if you love party games like that, you’re going to love Sketch Online for Android.
Considering this is a mobile app, it’s pretty impressive. There’s an area where one person draws, and then a chat area where everyone else tries to guess the answer before the time is up. You get points for how fast you answer correctly.
I have to say, some of the folks on here were pretty good. You really get the sense like you’re at a big online party, and everyone has a blast.
You can download Sketch Online using this code:
