Classic Games From The 90s Are Being Revived On Google Play Store

There are a lot of very good mobile games you can play on Android these days. There’s a brand new Witcher game that seems very promising, a bunch of titles from NetEase that are all different flavors of RPG, and who wouldn’t want to command Tiny Sam Fisher in Ubisoft’s Elite Squad?

But why bother getting any of these brand new games when you could just get a very good old game on your mobile device? Classics from the ’90s are all available on Android via Google Play, and they’ve all been remastered to look and feel great on your mobile device.

“These games-of-old are amazing, and it would be a shame to not share them with the billions of people who play games today,” says Greg Hartrell, head of product management and games at Google Play. Hartrell gave us a list of the best games you can get from the ’90s on Android today, and there are some definite classics here.

Games like Crazy Taxi, one of the few reasons you might have owned a Sega Dreamcast. This lunatic cab driver’s dream works great with tilt controls and features the same songs that gave the original such a banging soundtrack. It’s free to download and you can pay to make the ads stop.

Or how about Roller Coaster Tycoon? This business management sim started a franchise that is still around today and is the best way to simulate what would happen if you made a roller coaster to nowhere. People would still pay even if the ride simply catapulted them to their untimely deaths.

As for Hartrell, “I’d have to pick Chrono Trigger for a couple of reasons. First, it was the first game my younger brother played end-to-end while I watched (vs. the other way around). Second, the twist mid-game (which I won’t spoil) was a bold move for the average RPG with a silent protagonist, and made it seem larger than life at the time!”

Here’s Google Play’s top 10 games from the ‘90s that you can download on mobile today:

  1. Crazy Taxi Classic
  2. Gunstar Heroes Classic
  3. Myst
  4. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Classic
