Android Tablets almost feel like as if they were designed for games. The high-resolution large screens with touch have proven again and again to be great for gaming.
In 2017, we’ve seen some of the best games for Android tablets. As long as your device has the minimum of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop or above, 1.2 GHz or better, 1 GB RAM (we recommend 1.5 GHz and 2 GB or RAM), you should be able to enjoy a seamless gaming experience.
A 10″ Android tablet such as the NVIDIA Shield is a great choice. As long as you have a touchscreen tablet that meets the above requirements you should have no issue running of these games. You won’t need a stylus or gamepad to play any of these games for Android Tablets but it is recommended that you do use a headset for best audio quality, especially for games like Alto’s Adventure that have amazing sound tracks.
