Paid Android Games
I want to say right away - do not rush to buy games from the list. First, watch the videos and read the reviews and only then make a decision. And of course, don't forget that games can be returned in some cases.
Crashlands - a smart game
Crashlands is a very well-designed game that takes your protagonist to a dangerous planet on a mission to build a base, defeat enemies, and ultimately escape back into space. The combat system is simple and fun. Gathering resources and creating something from them is easy, so the gameplay will not strain you.
Among other things, the game has a lot of humor that does not interfere with the addictive gameplay. And there is also a level editor if you want to mess around.
Reigns: Her Majesty - Tinder-style swiper
This is a continuation of the previously released game. In it, you will have to make decisions that will decide the fate of the Kingdom. You can change the balance of power in the Kingdom, such as the relationship between people, the Church, and the army.
Of course, the game will take into account your "wishes", so it can be called a kingdom management simulator in away. The game mechanics may sound simple, but there have been enough positive reviews for it to be considered good.

The Room: Old Sins - atmospheric puzzle
The Room: Old Sins is the latest installment in a much-loved puzzle series that focuses on manipulating objects in a confined space. The player must explore mysterious places, solve obscure clues, and use bizarre devices to uncover the secrets of Waldegrave Estate. You will also have to look for hidden objects.
The level of graphic detail and sound quality will immerse you in a spooky story, making the entire game feel intense. Even if you can't find the time to solve the final puzzle - when you get stuck, the game will offer you more and more understandable clues.

Homo Machina - try to collect
This game may seem strange to many. However, it was prepared by the European studio ARTE and has an intriguing concept. The Darjeeling developers are inspired by the work of Fritz Kahn, a doctor, and scientist, who described the workings of the human body using machines as metaphors.
If the human body is a machine that looks like a giant factory, the player is tasked with managing the staff: the little people inside the person whose job it is to make everything work smoothly. The game's plot consists of several situations that can be solved in the form of puzzles - from simple ones, such as eating, to more complex ones, such as going on a date. As with the real human body, everything is interconnected, so to solve one problem you need to solve several puzzles in different parts of the body. Interesting and unusual.

Thimbleweed Park - a little nostalgia
The latest adventure game from the legendary designer of the Monkey Island series, Ron Gilbert, perfectly combines old-time nostalgia with modern convenience.
You have to manage a couple of weird FBI agents investigating a murder mystery in an equally obscure city. You need to explore different locations, talk to quirky characters, and collect and use items in the right way to solve puzzles.
The ability to switch between different characters in different locations adds another layer of depth, but if that's too hard for you, there's even an "easy" mode if you just prefer to enjoy the story and retro graphics.

Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition - for those who are older
Planescape: Torment will appeal to those who loved to play in 2000 and perfectly remember the masterpieces of that time, including Dungeons and Dragons. Fortunately, this is a game that resembles the classics, but at the same time gives the player the opportunity to enjoy modern convenient controls and settings. The game also has a cool soundtrack.
If you give Planescape: Torment a try and enjoy it, check out other games from Beamdog, such as Baldur's Gate. Perhaps in it, you will also find something that will interest you.

The Quest - another old school
Don't let the generic name confuse you. Quest by Redshift games is an old-school open-world first-person RPG with hand-drawn graphics and a great storyline. It is somewhat reminiscent of classic Elder Scrolls games such as Daggerfall.
The Quest is based on a complex plot, but the game does not lead you along strict rails and offers you a huge fantasy world. In it, you will need to complete various quests and missions. There is no need to rush through the game - you can just play in your own pace and have fun. But remember that your choice may affect the outcome of the story.
The game is not cheap, but you will get many hours of gameplay without annoying ads. I can only add that the game is often distributed at a discount, so you can take your time to buy it and keep an eye on the price.

Immortal Rogue - vampire game
In this game, you play as a vampire who wakes up to eat every 100 years. On this path, you will pass several different civilizations. At different times you will have different enemies that you need to defeat, and at the same time find the items that are needed to complete the game. Your timeless protagonist may end up killing enemies with a magic sword, a dinosaur skull helmet, and a robotic fist, or other slightly weird objects.
The game gets really difficult in places and your character can get killed. But he will be reborn, becoming stronger. And he will also have assistants who can assist in solving some problems.

Riptide GP: Renegade - Racing for Android
This racing game has been around for several years, but still receives regular updates and competes with the leaders of ratings of similar games. You will play as a pilot of a cool jet ski. The controls are smooth and responsive, and the graphics are excellent, with impressive water physics that add extra complexity, but at the same time appeal to the game. To make it even more interesting, the creators have thought of many different locations.
The game features a story-driven career mode campaign in which you follow the tale of an illegal racer evading the authorities. If you get tired of competing with the computer, there is an online mode in which you can fight with 8 players from all over the world.
The game has an internal currency, but it is needed only in order to develop in the game. You don't have to buy it - you can only earn it in the game. Simply put, everything depends on you and no one will take money out of you.

Uciana - a decent indie strategy game
Uciana is a space strategy game that came out of nowhere this year, but it made the most satisfying impression. The coolest thing is that it only costs US$0.99, but it still doesn't have in-app purchases. Nowadays, this is rare even for paid games.
You can play as several different space civilizations - from humans to interstellar crabs. Each of them has its own characteristics and design of the ship, which gives them a special flavor. The goal of the game will be galactic domination, which is achieved through research, economic growth, technological research, and, of course, diplomacy and war. However, if you take the time to get comfortable, Uciana is one of the best strategy games for mobile that isn't tainted by monetization.
