What kind of games can android tv box play?

You can use the computer's HDMI cable DVI cable to connect the set-top box and the computer display, or you can connect the TV display, and then buy a handle or flying squirrel to complete the game. If it is only an Android TV box, without other hardware assistance, you can only play Android games.

Playing games on Android set-top boxes requires not only other hardware assistance, but also configuration parameters, such as CPU, RAM, and ROM. In 2020, I would recommend Amlogic s905x3 (H96 max x3) for Android tv box. The s905x3 android tv box is 64-bit quad core ARM® Cortex™ A55 CPU, RAM 4GB, ROM 128GB.

The following are the android tv box games that I recommend to play frequently: (Some rankings are in order)

1. Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8 is one of my all time favourite mobile games. It is incredibly fun to play, and even comes with a local (and online) multiplayer mode, which makes it even better. On the Android TV, the game is available on the Play Store, and runs just fine on the Mi Box. True, the frame rate is not very smooth, but it’s completely playable, for sure. You can connect a Bluetooth gamepad to your Android TV, and Asphalt automatically detects it, and tells you the control scheme for your gamepad.

While it is possible to play the game with the controller that is provided with the TV box, it makes for a “not-so-exciting” gameplay. However, add a Bluetooth controller to the mix, and you will find yourself having a lot of fun racing on a giant screen in your living room.

2. Crossy Road

Crossy Road is a fun game that will keep you hooked for hours at a time. The premise is simple – you just have to cross roads, while avoiding getting hit by traffic (which comes both ways, on some streets), and also avoiding going out of the screen, as the camera keeps panning forward, and you need to keep ahead of that. What makes this game so addictive, is possibly the fact that you feel like it’s easy enough, when it’s not, and that it requires you to maintain a fast pace, right from the start. Making your way through traffic is hard enough, but the game quickly moves on to streams that you have to cross by stepping over logs, and leaves.

The graphic quality in the game is deliberately poor, but that is what adds to the overall charm, and feel of the game. Plus, the fast paced movement, and the easy control scheme makes it a lot of fun to play. Do note that the game is better played with the Android TV remote, rather than a gamepad.

3. Dead Trigger 2

Dead Trigger 2 is a first person survival game, set in a world torn apart by a global zombie apocalypse. If you’re thinking this is yet another zombie apocalypse game, it kinda is. However, the “kind-of” open world maps, and the graphic quality of the game makes for a very interesting game design. You can walk around the map, completing objectives, and a lot more. The game requires a gamepad to play, and you will have to set it up before you can get to playing the game. While the set up does take some time, I like the idea of customizing the controls when the game launches, so you know exactly how to go about playing the game, and completing the objectives handed to you.

When the game starts off, you’re in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies, and you’re armed with just a melee weapon, and a handgun. More weapons get unlocked later on in the game, and give you the option to play the game in variety of different ways. The game is updated often, adding more and more gameplay elements, to keep you interested, and absorbed in surviving in what can only be described as a hell-hole.

4. Into the Dead

Into the Dead is another game that I really liked playing on my Android phone, and it was a pleasant surprise to see the game being just as much fun on a larger screen. Except, more interesting. Also, playing the game on a bigger screen give the visuals a much deeper perspective, bringing out the real horror in running along a field filled with zombies, and obstacles. The game is easily playable with a gamepad, and tells you controls as you go along. Running is automatic, and all you have control over, is turning left or right, to avoid zombies (and obstacles like trees, and abandoned cars), as well as shooting from weapons that you can pick up from crates that are dropped randomly.

The game is basically an endless runner, and it gets progressively more difficult to play, as the distance increases. You will need to be quick with your reflexes, and turn at the exact moments, to avoid colliding with a zombie, resulting in death.

5. Orbia

Orbia is a pretty casual game that I have been playing on my Android smartphone, and the good news is, it works perfectly on Android TV. The game is pretty simple. You just have to tap and dash to the next circle without hitting the enemies. While the game is simple, it does get pretty fast paced as the levels rise and honestly, what truly makes the game exciting is minimal, vibrant visuals and the great soundtrack.

The game has a number of different worlds, characters that you can unlock as you go along and I played the game with the Android TV remove and it worked out fine, so even if you don’t have a controller, you should be able to play Orbia without any hiccups.

6. Hovercraft: Getaway

The Hovercraft series of games have gotten immensely popular over the years and well, the latest entry, Hovercraft: Getaway is no exception. This is a combat-racing action game that’s supremely fun. The game, obviously, lets you handle a hovercraft and you are on the run with the cops on your tail. All you need to do is evade the cop cruisers, and destroy them with a range of different weapons. The game offers everything, be it guns, missiles, lasers, rockets, sniper cannons and more. Plus, what makes the game fun is the fact that the police come in cruisers, hoverbikes, trucks, drones, tanks and even helicopters.

Hovercraft: Getaway is an extensive game and I like the fact that it lets you customize the hovercraft with different weapons and numerous upgrades. Plus, the visuals are really good and the physics based combat system makes it a lot of fun. The game works with both a gamepad or the Android TV remote, so you shouldn’t face any issues playing the game on your TV.

7. Badland

Yet another fun game that you can play on your Android TV, is the critically acclaimed, and widely loved game Badland. The game has received over 1 million ratings, and averages out at 4.5/5, which is nothing short of marvellous. On the TV, the minimal graphics look extremely good, and the colours stand out well. You can play the game with a gamepad, or with the Android TV remote control, and it feels a lot like other tap-to-fly games like Flappy Bird. Except, less annoying.

In Badland, you can hit walls, and obstacles as much as you want, as long as you don’t get stuck in them, which results in death. The objective is to cross the level while dodging obstacles, and collecting power-ups. Levels get progressively harder, and the game doesn’t stop being interesting.

8. Zombie Age 2

Zombie Age 2 is a fun, side-scrolling shooter game, with light graphics, and a funny take on killing zombies. The game starts off with teaching you the basic movement, and shooting scheme that you’ll follow. Then, you’re quickly thrown into the field, expected to defend yourself with just a baseball bat, and a pistol. The first couple of levels are easy, and just when you start unlocking weapons, and basically start feeling invincible, you’ll be shoved into a level that seems almost impossible to complete.

That’s the fun part of this game, it challenges you in unexpected ways, and tries to (successfully) keep you on your feet, and keep your adrenaline pumping. The game is really quite fun to play, and if you like shooter games that don’t take themselves too seriously, Zombie Age 2 is the perfect way to spend some time shooting, and bashing zombies on your TV.

9. BombSquad

BombSquad is one of those games that you can enjoy quite a lot with a keyboard, but not so much with a gamepad. However, if you happen to attach a keyboard to your Android TV, you’ll definitely fall in love with BombSquad. The game supports a number of different gameplay modes, including single player/co-op, or multi-player. The game is a lot of fun when played in multiplayer mode; all you need to do is connect two (or more) controllers to your Android TV, and you’re all set to play with your friends.

BombSquad has a number of great levels, and the sole aim of the game is to kill all your friends’ characters. You can punch them, lift and throw them off the platform (effectively killing them), or chuck bombs at them. The game is a lot of fun, even in single player mode, but playing with friends will bring out its true potential. You should definitely try it out with a couple of your friends.

10. Beach Buggy Racing

If you’re interested in racing games, Beach Buggy Racing is a great racing game that you can play on your Android TV. The best part about this game is that you can easily control the beach buggy that you’re supposed to be racing. The control scheme is easy to understand, and the game does not use super accurate physics, which, to be honest, can be annoying on a casual game. The game starts off by teaching you how to race your car, and how to upgrade it… all the basics of the game. While racing, you can pick up various power-ups that provide you with different types of powers, including things like rockets to blast your opponents out of your way, boosts to speed past anyone in front of you, and a lot more.

You can also get the shield, which basically protects you from rockets, and bombs fired by your opponents. The game itself is a lot of fun, partly because of the smooth gameplay, but also because it does not try to make itself too complicated, and keeps the controls, and the handling of the car, sweet and simple; something that I really love.

With the android tv box, you can watch TV and high-definition movies when you have an Internet connection in your home. In addition, you don’t have to pay a video fee, just pay the network fee.
