Local multiplayer games are a dying breed in the world of gaming. Most multiplayer games nowadays can only work if you’re connected to the internet. Sure, it’s fun to pwn noobs from across the world, but sometimes you want to pwn the person sitting right next to you.
Local multiplayer games are perfect for passing time with your friends, boring plane rides while waiting for food at a restaurant, hospital waiting rooms, and tons of other situations. It can be hard to find a good Android game with local multiplayer, but we’ve done all the work for you. Also, you might want to pick up the Moga Hero Power controller for your Android phone if you really want the upper hand when challenging your friends. Check out these great games for two (or more) players!
In this game you and a friend take to the skies and control fighter jets. Each player gets their own controls on the opposite side of the device. The goal of the game is to maneuver your jet so you can shoot the other player. The first player to get 10 successful hits is the winner. The only buttons at your disposal are left, right, jet, and fire. Like many of the games on this list, it’s super simple, but also tons of fun. It’s also available for free.
