When the case is of gaming, desktop gaming is considered to be the pinnacle. But, mobile gaming has also evolved as a great choice in recent years. Perhaps it is because of the upgrades that the mobile games have made, or because now many desktop games are available on Android devices.
And when it comes to hard-core gamers, they don’t play games just for fun or time pass, and they surely don’t randomly choose the games to be played. There are various categories or genres of games, like action, adventure etc. And with time, horror games have also added themselves in the list of liked and most played games.
Here are top 10 Android games which are utterly based on horror-
1. Into The Dead (75 MB and In-app purchases)
Zombies are a great name when it comes to horror. In this game, you have to survive as long as possible in a world overrun with zombies.
