Top 5 Gaming Sequels on Android

Best ways to get more of the same on Android

Some may bemoan the abundance of sequels in gaming, but let’s face it: most of us love them. What’s not to like about more of something we really dig, only bigger and better?

Sequels hand developers the opportunity to refine and perfect an already-brilliant formula, which is why such follow-ups make for some of the best games on Android.

Because there are so many of these follow-ups, we have applied some rules to our Top 5 gaming sequels on Android list. They must be direct sequels to existing Android games and they must score higher than the prequel.

With those rules in mind, let’s get this feature wrapped up in time for talks about the inevitable sequel.

Another follow-up of an acclaimed original offering more of the same goodness, Quell Reflect provides yet more spellbinding spatial puzzles and haunting melodies to get you feeling all contemplative. FallenTreeGames's title also throws in some new gameplay elements to keep you on your toes, chief of which is the manipulation of multiple droplets.

The original Reckless Racing was a fine slice of muddy, powerslide-happy redneck racing. Reckless Racing 2 takes it out of the backwaters - both literally and metaphorically. It's bigger and deeper, with a properly structured career mode and loads more cars.

This epic hack 'n' slash sequel from Glu Mobile serves up more orc bashing with lush 3D HD visuals, slick real-time combat, and online multiplayer. With hours of gameplay and loads of loot to plunder, it's the closest thing yet to Diablo on your Android. Best of all, it's free to play.

Since when has more of the same been a bad thing? Edge Extended takes the achingly hip cube-rolling gameplay of Edge and extends it (hence the name) across 48 all-new levels. It doesn't reinvent the cube, but Edge Extended provides yet more high-class entertainment for your Android device.

The first Guns'n'Glory impressed us all with its quirky take on tower defence and its unusual Wild West setting. This sequel retains the former but changes the latter (to an equally interesting World War 2 setting). With lovely cartoony graphics and a deep RPG-like progression system, it's a worthy follow-up to an Android classic.
