Dungeon Village – Rs.253.59
This simulation game from Kairosoft games, rather the best game from the developer so far, is a simulation, even with its not-so-good graphics. The game involves building the tiny fancy town and nurturing it. Interestingly, you aren’t a hero here, but the person in charge of the heroes. Now, that sounds fun and different. We found this RPG simply engaging, despite the fact that it leaves a spacious room for improvement and a steep price.

GTA III – Rs.256.13
‘Bringing to life the dark and seedy underworld of Liberty City,’ the Grand Theft Auto III brings its diverse open world on the Android mobile gaming platform.
