In both Google and Apple application stores we can find video games of all kinds and for all tastes. Some are intended for a more casual and less demanding audience, while others seem taken by desktop consoles thanks to their incredible graphics.

But what is clear is that a smartphone is an ideal platform for enjoying video games and we can find great racing titles, platforms, action, puzzles, and even some that look like works of art.

However, there is a genre that for some years has achieved great popularity among video game lovers. For the freedom it offers the player, for the beauty of its graphics and, above all, for the long duration of these titles. We are talking about open world games –Also called sandbox– and, of course, here we present the best ones to download to your smartphone.

GTA: San Andreas

GTA: San Andreas is a must in the video game catalog for Android

At this point in the movies we will not discover Grand Theft Auto games. The famous saga of criminals, shooting, action and many vehicles has reached its peak thanks to San Andreas at the time of the legendary PlayStation 2 and is that not only its graphics caused a sensation, but also its history and of course the freedom it gave to the player who could spend hours and hours wandering around the city of San Andreas always going to discover the strange secret .

GTA: San Andreas, therefore, is not only one of the best sandboxes for Android, but also one of the best games in its catalog and all this for only 7,99 euros.


Have you heard of Roblox? It is a "universe" in which we can play, create and become anything we can imagine. If you still don't know him, join millions of players from all over the world and discover all its infinite possibilities.

Curious? Here we leave you the best games created by Roblox users in so that you can enjoy them for hours and hours.


Terraria is a 2D open world game in which in addition to facing terrible monsters we will have to collect materials and build different buildings. One of the games that rewards the player's freedom the most and is that there are infinite possibilities both for the creation of the character and for the customization of this and the different constructions we make.

It has a multiplayer mode, more than 300 enemies and 15 bosses to fight against, all this without forgetting the 3.500 objects to collect and manufacture. A game that will offer us hundreds of hours of duration for only 5,49 euros. The truth is not a bad deal.


One of the most important games in history with millions of copies sold and which has represented a real revolution in the world of video games.

Contrary to what many users might think, Minecraft is not a game for children and despite its "colorful" graphics, it offers gameplay and possibilities that no other video game has even managed to match.

Its Android version is the perfect excuse to enjoy Minecraft anywhere and anytime and it will cost us only 6,99 euros.

Impatto Genshin

Genshin Impact is undoubtedly the game of the moment. The Chinese title has already conquered millions of mobile phones, PlayStation4 and computers all over the world and all this thanks to its incredible graphics, its huge and colorful world as well as a really passionate gameplay.

To make matters worse, the game is completely free and while still a gacha with a lot of microtransactions, Genshin Impact is worth it.

Portal Knights

Portal Knights is a fun open world game featuring colorful graphics and action-packed gameplay. The idea, like many other games of this style, is to level up our character, equip him with better items and defeat all enemies that cross our path.

Portal Knights is therefore a cooperative role-playing game at a fairly competitive price, so if you like this genre, the title will not disappoint you.

Mobile ARK Survival Evolved

An open world, materials and objects to collect, a multitude of weapons and… dinosaurs? This is what ARK offers a survival game that will delight the most demanding gamers.

In ARK: Survival Evolved we will start unarmed and practically naked so we will have to equip ourselves in the best possible way to survive in this gigantic world. The game allows us to forge alliances and build giant structures to defend ourselves, but beware, because dinosaurs aren't the only danger lurking in this world.

black desert

Black Desert is one of the most popular MMOs (Massively Multiplayer Online) thanks to its incredible graphics and a more than interesting combat system. Now, due to its Asian origin, may be too "captivating" for many, but there is no doubt that if you like World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy XIV games, you will love this title.

Black Desert Mobile brings all the essence of the original game into the palm of our hand, so there is no excuse not to download it and try it.

Oddworld: Wrath of the Stranger

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is an open world game? The truth is that one could argue for hours but it is also true that it is not worth it because the title is a great game from start to finish.

In this title of the well-known franchise born in the days of the original PlayStation, we will explore huge cities, lush forests and large industrial structures eliminating any hostile creature that dares to approach us thanks to our powerful weapons.

A game that will not leave us indifferent and even more so when we see the its price of only 3,19 euros.
