Card Thief is a card-based stealth game from TiNYTOUCHTALES and Arnold Rauers, the second such game from those developers to appear on our list this year. The first was Miracle Merchant, which we called the No. 16 Android game of 2016, but before that game came out, Card Thief was taking up all of our time.
Love You to Bits is a point-and-click adventure puzzler from Enric Jorda and Alike Studio, developers behind the equally charming classic, Tiny Thief. That game is no longer available due to Rovio removing the game from Google Play, but this newest game was self-published and has found critical acclaim on all platforms.
We have our final batch of games in our 2017 Android game of the year list before we move to single posts for each, featuring Old Man’s Journey, Sidewords and more.
Our top 31 games of 2017 continues with numbers 20-16, featuring big names like FRAMED 2 and Miracle Merchant.
We missed some deadlines, but are nonetheless enthused to bring you the next batch of games up until our absolute favorite game of 2017 is revealed on the 31st, featuring numbers 26 through 21 and including games like Layton’s Mystery Journey, Tokaido and more.

This is Passpartout: The Starving Artist. A silly, tranquil drawing game that sucked me in like no other drawing game ever could. You see, I’m a terrible artist and I’ve always been insecure about my own mediocrity. Passpartout exposes me to a world of people who, while harsh at times, appreciate my bad art most of the time.
Reigns was one of the biggest surprises to hit the mobile gaming world upon its release, and we’ve been VERY PATIENTLY (not at all patiently) awaiting the sequel to the Tinder-meets-Game-of-Thrones swipe-em-up. But we wait no longer: Reigns: Her Majesty dropped on Google Play on Thursday and it’s as delightful as anticipated.
DATA WING from Dan Vogt is an Android racing game that boasts, surprisingly, some of the best writing we’ve seen in a game this year. The level-based racing gameplay is excellent on its own, but the dialogue, provided by the rather snarky AI (or is it?) “Mother,” takes it to another level.
It’s you like burgling, heisting, the thrill of crimes in general and the overall concept of mobile board games, then this one is for you.
