Incell is a great augmented reality android game – especially for those who love science and science fiction. It a very colorful game that falls under the category of action, strategy and racing.

The story has obstacles from the past, present and future, filled with evil details. It will challenge your thinking and every successful step you take will bring you closer to a supposed ‘happy ending’.
However, this game is designed for very powerful android devices, NEXUS 5 and higher, due to its high end graphics and display.
3. Proton Pulse
Proton Pulse is not one of the freemium augmented reality games, but it is definitely a fun arcade game. It gives you over 50 levels of brick-breaking in a 3D environment filled with vibrant colors and an amazing soundtrack.

4. Minecraft: Gear VR Edition

5. BombSquad VR
BombSquad, is a popular Android game outside the virtual world apps, that has been in the Play Store for quite some time. However, with the augmented reality world and its popularity, the game was launched in September.
It allows you to enjoy multiplayer networking but requires a gamepad. However, if you do not have one, you can always download its remote on any other android device and enjoy the game.
Caaaaardboard! Is an interesting enhanced reality game that is basically a VR derivation of the Android game AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!
It requires no complicated gamepads and remotes, and uses the tilting experience for control.
You are made to jump off buildings and perform stunts while doing so. You can even spray paint graffiti on buildings and chase away protesters which makes this game perfect for rebels.
You are rewarded with hugs and kisses for performing stunts, which, to be honest, is hilarious.
7. Radical-G Infinity
Imagine a more futuristic version of a game with endless runs like Temple Run or Subway Surfer.
It is an extremely addictive game where you run around in a spaceship being chased by enemies. It is a pretty fun augmented reality game available for Google Cardboard as well.
You get a choice of 3 spaceships but they are unlocked depending on the progress of your game.
You cannot afford to fall from your spaceship a lot or you might get burned. However, you will have a magnetic field to your favor that will help you stay stable in the game.
The game is free and has a two dimensional plus an enhanced reality mode for augmented reality applications and game play.
8. Voxel Fly VR
This is another fun but highly addictive augmented reality game. Your aim in this game is to fly as high as you can without bumping into any of the incoming cars.

9. Roller Coaster VR attraction
Another great augmented reality game for android is Roller Coaster VR attraction.
Have you experienced one of those motion rides where you ride it through a fantasy park? Well this game is somewhat similar to that?
It makes you ride a completely abandoned roller coaster through a tropical island.
It comes for free, but you get to make some in-app purchases for it. It isn’t very highly rated but of the limited augmented reality games, it is a lot of fun.
10. Cyclops Duck Hunt VR
You probably didn’t have a childhood if you never played the NES Duck Hunt. Everyone had it along with a shooting gun on the Nintendo and other video game consoles.
This, however, is a strange enhanced reality version of it. It is a futuristic version making you a Cyclops-type character who hunts down evil mutant ducks. It has robot ducks, zombie ducks, and hilariously, Donald Trump ducks.
You can even play it in standard two-dimensional mode.
This game also offers in-app downloads.
With Google’s vision of making augmented reality accessible to all, and with the advent of Google Cardboard, the android augmented reality apps have received a great boost. These top virtual reality android games stand out, but by looking at the support from Google, it is possible that enhanced reality games will soon be a new multi-dimensional experience.
