It's true, the best things in life are free -- well freemium. The following games are our favorite Android games that don't cost you a penny to download. From cruising the galaxy while color matching drones, trying to survive the zombie apocalypse or paling around with some of your favorite Marvel Heroes, these games are both fun and addictive.
Tower Defense fans should get a kick out of Timenauts, a cartoony battle that takes you through the annuls of time. The strategy game tasks gamers with destroying the enemy's' bases, while protecting yours by deploying troops onto the battlefield. As you progress through the title, you'll unlock spells called Time Vessel powers that can quickly turn the tide of battle, as well as upgrade older characters or unlock new ones.
It's sort of like "Tokyo Drift", but with your thumbs. In Thumb Drift, the name of the game is speed, finesse and coasting around corners like you're starring in your own personal "Fast and the Furious". As you get better at clearing some of the more difficult tracks, you'll earn access to more than 50 different cars to take for a spin.
Candy Crush a little to sweet for you? Now you can get that same weirdly addicting thrill from matching objects of the same color in Futurama: Game of Drones. As you progress through the title, matching drones, you'll encounter some of the show's standout characters, including Fry, Leela, Bender and even Zapp Brannigan. Match enough drones and you might face-off with the evil owner of rival company Momazon, Mom!
Coming from the same minds behind Crossy Road, PAC-MAN 256 gives the old game a modern, infinite runner spin for mobile devices. Players guide Pac-Man through a maze, munching through dots and power pellets while outrunning ghosts and "The Glitch", which slowly crawls up the infinite length of the maze. The good old power pellet makes its return, allowing you to take the fight to the ghosts, while new powerups like laser beams add new twists to familiar gameplay. Players earn points which can be used to unlock and improve powerups for their next game.
Part puzzle game, part player-vs-player social game, King of Thieves is a neat free game from Zeptolab. Players must navigate a variety of fiendish, trap-filled dungeons in order to earn more loot. Treasure is stored at a home base. In addition to the pre-generated single player maps, players can also raid others' dungeons to steal their hard-earned loot.
While you eagerly anticipate the launch of Pokemon Go, why not get familiar with another kind of battle monster? In Digimon Heroes, players dish out a beating to rogue Digimon via match-3 card battle. As you make your way through File Island, you'll encounter over 1,000 Digimon, including series favorites Gabumon, Agumom and Gatomon with tons of digivolutions and digifusions.
"Walking Dead" fans can occupy their time between episodes with Walking Dead: Road to Survival. This role-playing game (RPG) allows you to recruit survivors of the zombie apocalypse for a final showdown with the despotic Governor. During the course of the game, you'll upgrade your fellow survivors -- increasing their power, weapon proficiency and skill sets. You'll also have an active part in the story as the decisions you make during missions can have sweeping effects throughout the course of the game.
