Top 1 megabyte games that take up minimal space

Simple games can often make the best games. Not every game needs complex gameplay or better graphics to be enjoyable, and the best part of fairly simple games is that they take up less space on your device. Here’s a list of games that you’ll want to consider if you have low storage space on your mobile.

Top 1 megabyte games that take up minimal space

When you install games on your phone space often at times can be a defining factor as to whether or not that game is worthwhile. However, Google Play and the App Store have low-storage games that are just as fun as some of the 60+ GB games you have for PlayStation and other devices. They range from very basic games to retro games, first-person shooters, puzzlers, and platformers.

So If you want some of the best low storage games for your device then look no further. This list is not exhaustive and there is no ranking – it is just some of the most popular 1MB games that you can get for your phone or device.

Fur-Guardians

fur-guardians

Fur-Guardians is a low-storage game that is super fun, you defeat enemies on different levels set in the land of Fur-Guardia. You play a fur guardian, basically a really cute bunny that is tasked with protecting the land against threats.

Levels that are given are randomly generated and there are customizable characters, where you can change the colour of the fur etc. The gameplay is in 16-bit so isn’t super fancy but it will scratch the itch when it comes to basic platformers.

Doodle Cricket

Doodle-Cricket

Doodle Cricket is really cute you control a bunch of cartoon crickets that play cricket against a group of cartoon snails. But the snails, although slow have a decent level of skill in the game. Your goal is to hit the ball as far as possible to earn points.

Once you swing and miss the ball your turn is over so you have to get used to swinging and hitting exactly right to get the highest score because who wants to be beaten by a bunch of snails? Doodle Cricket is completely free and available on both iOS and Android devices, so it’s worth checking it out.

2048

2048

This is a sliding tile puzzle game and hits the 1MB mark fully but it is really addictive and fun to play. I2048 is a puzzle game about maths, I know I’m not really selling it here but you kind of have to try it to see what I’m talking about. The goal is to get a single tile to add up to 2048, which sounds simple but it really isn’t.

The Ludo

The-Ludo

Ludo starts with four tokens that are placed in each player’s box at the start. Then a die is rolled in turns by each player. A player’s token is placed on the starting point when a 6 is rolled and the main goal is to take all four tokens inside the ‘home’ area before your opponent manages to take them.

You can change the number of players to 2, 3, or 4 depending on your preference, and is a really fun game to play if you are struggling to sleep or just want to relax.

Stickman and Gun 3

Stickman-and-gun-3

Stickman and Gun 3 is a zombie shooter game, probably my favourite on the list because I love any zombie-themed game. The stickmen in the game kill zombies that are also stickmen but green, and you collect money for each zombie kill you accrue. It’s your mission to survive the zombie apocalypse.

The money you earn can then be used to buy more lethal weapons that help you upgrade yourself to the best shooter. You can get new warriors and customize your stickmen heroes to look even cooler as you work your way to the best rooting, tooting zombie shooting stickman the world has ever seen.
