Every now and then, we look for a challenge. Something that tests our brains and reflexes. Challenges can come from anywhere and there are some very difficult games on Android. Anyone looking for something hard should have their plates full with the most challenging games for Android!

Duet

Duet is an unassuming puzzle game where you must revolve two balls around an axis and avoid falling platforms. It starts out pretty easy but gets ridiculous fairly quickly. It’s beatable and some have even found it easy. However, the majority of players don’t understand how their brains even know where to move the balls half of the time. You can get the main campaign of the game for free with the pro version unlocking additional content for your gaming enjoyment.

Pixel Dungeon

Amazingly Fun and Challenging Game! If you like roguelikes then this game is a must-have for you. There are a ton of interlocking mechanics that make this game very unique. As the description states, this game is very difficult and luck-based. I have never won a single run yet although I’ve played over 100 games; I barely made it to the final boss once on my best run. To succeed in Pixel Dungeon you’ll need a decent understanding of the game’s mechanics, good resource management, and luck. All in all, this game is amazing! Can only recommend!

Out There: Ω Edition

Out There: Ω Edition is a very frustrating and very fun survival game. The premise of the game is you play the role of an astronaut who wakes up from cryonics in the deepest regions of space and you must survive the trip back to Earth. The developer made certain to bring into account how vast and harsh space can be and you’ll be dealing with friendly and unfriendly aliens, rushing to find an oxygen supply, and learning to use random technology to fix and improve your ship. This game is not for casual players, but it does have 59 achievements that you can try to earn!

Geometry Dash

Addictive, Challenging, and A Whole Lot of Fun! It is very difficult to put this game down once you start playing. It’s very addictive and challenging, and it can make you very angry at times. However, it is very fun to play when you want to listen to cool techno music that will get you dancing to the beat. There are quite a few levels, but it seems like there are even more when you play them since each level takes so long to beat. Overall, I definitely reccomend this game!

Go Free

Go received some international attention when Google’s Deepmind (AlphaGo) went toe-to-toe with one of the best Go players in the world and won. As it turns out, you can play this simple, but exceptionally deep board game for yourself. This version of Go allows you to play on 9×9 and 13×13 boards with unlimited moves, and 19×19 boards up to 180 moves (the paid version unlocks this restriction). The engine powering the game has a 3 dan rating which is fairly high. It won’t challenge the best in the world, but it’ll absolutely crush beginners and amateurs alike. Good luck!

You must creatively coordinate your defenses and utilize powerful champions, including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, to devastate waves of enemy attacks as you fight both light and dark side battles. The placement and execution of these defenses are do-or-die decisions in both single player mode and online social events where you can earn rewards with rare bonuses.

FINAL FANTASY IV

The original release of Final Fantasy IV was actually one of the more difficult jRPGs ever made. It was made easier when released in the United States until the Nintendo DS version when the original hard mode was integrated back into the game. As it turns out, the Android version of Final Fantasy IV is a port of the Nintendo DS version which means this is the most difficult version of this game that you can get. The enemies are tougher, gold is harder to find, and even some random encounters have a chance to kill your entire party. It also comes with a 25+ hour story and tons of side quests. It’s expensive, but it’s also a classic.

DroidFish Chess

Anyone who doesn’t think that Chess is difficult hasn’t been playing against the right opponents. It’s one of the most complex and difficult board games out there and only a few ever really master the game. Droidfish is a chess game that uses the famous Stockfish engine which is considered one of the most powerful chess engines in the world. In other words, it’s going to whip you repeatedly in some chess. There are a ton of features but there is also a learning curve because this chess game is for people who aren’t messing around. It’s also free and open source.
