People with phones that can get the Android Lollipop update are eagerly waiting and keeping their eyes on the news wires. It is guaranteed to improve a lot, ranging from notifications to gaming.  In this piece we are going to look at some of the best console to android conversions we have seen. These games can be played on most jellybean devices, but with the Android L, they will become even slicker.

These are some of the games enjoyed by thousands of people on their gaming consoles, and even on PCs. If you never enjoyed these games, you can get yourself a second hand video game console at or cashconverters  and enjoy the thrill of amazing graphics and gameplay!

If you just want to play on your android device then you will very pleasantly surprised how these games translate onto the operating system.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – 10th Anniversary Edition

This game was originally made for PCs and PlayStation 1, but it is now available on android. The Grand Theft Auto franchise is undoubtedly one of the biggest in the gaming world, and thus you can expect high quality from them at all times. Grand Theft Auto 5 is simply incredible on the consoles. While playing this sandbox game, it is easy to forget you are playing on a smart phone or tablet, as you will be enthralled by the vivid display of violence and adrenaline pumping action.   It will cost ($4.99) to get this game in the Google Play Store.


Final Fantasy III  

Final Fantasy is another great RPG game. It is a classic.  The graphics  are not up to scratch when you compare it to other games we have covered here but the story line is right up there with any RPG games you can play.  You will have to play for quite a while to be able to finish this game, and it puts you in a good position to enjoy the newer versions of this game, such as the Final Fantasy Dimension.  At $15.99 the game is quite pricy. It is however worth the money!

Tetris Blitz

This is an old MS-DOS game that is often overlooked when discussing video games, but EA has since turned it into puzzler game in the style of Bejeweled Blitz.  Building up coins is a little hard but once you get used to it, you will be able to enjoy the game- a lot. The soundtrack is a nice remix of the original tune.  If you share your mobile with a child, however, you need to be careful as there are in app purchases. Alternatively, you can remove you card details from the device.  This game costs $2.99 in the Google Play store.

The Bard’s Tale

This is one of the best action RPG games on the PC. This explains the excitement that greeted it following conversion to android. If you love the Game of Thrones franchise you will definitely enjoy this game. It is a tale of knights, and only Dragon’s Lair comes close to the experience.  The game costs $2.99 in the Google Play Store.


These are some of the best games converted from consoles to the Android platform. Get any of these and you will enjoy your gaming!
