Top 5 Sports Games on Android

Best ways to hit balls on Android

Ever since that fateful day when a man first hit a rock with a stick into a small hole in the ground, we have relished the challenge of competitive sport.

One of the most popular pastimes on the planet, sport demands physical prowess, technical expertise, and an unwavering commitment to get a ball past a bunch of other guys who really want your ball.

However, if you're looking for some sporting action but lack the fitness levels and requisite pair of Nike Airs, we at Qi have compiled our Top 5 Android sports games to help you compete from the comfort of your armchair.

So, put your feet up, and let your Android device work up a sweat so you don't have to.

In the first of several ball-themed entries on this rundown, this basketball title aims to recapture the glory days of '90s NBA. Featuring three play modes, multiplayer support, and all manner of outrageous slam dunks, NBA Jam on Android will grab a hold of you quicker than you can say "boomshakalaka". Once you've downloaded it, of course.
