Mr Detective is the best detective game on Android. The game features over 190 storyline-based puzzles, from murder mysteries to heists. The application is not difficult but as you move forward in the game, it tests your critical thinking skills.

All you have to do is read the text, find the clues in the pictures, and solve the puzzles to get the perfect conclusion. You unlock the next stage, just by completing the previous stage. This game is a bit more complicated because you have to read the instructions carefully and find the mistakes in the photos.

It is recommended to play this game offline, as there is a full page ad at the end of each stage. You can get rid of ads for $0.99, as well as in-app purchases for hints.

Find The Differences is another one of the best detective games for Android. This is the most basic detective game. We’ve even played spot the differences in the paper before. The game is simple, you need to observe two similar looking pictures and find the differences. Instead of random puzzles, you are given a story plot and lots of investigations in it.

The game gets harder as the clock is ticking and you have to complete each stage in less than 2 minutes. All levels consist of high quality images, and you get hints by watching ads whenever you are stuck.

I know this game sounds very easy, but for those of you who just want to have fun without spending money, this game is for you.

Who Is The Killer is the next best detective game on Android. The player is trapped in a castle with seven other characters, where one member is killed by the assassin every day, your goal is to stop the killer before he finishes them all.

When you investigate a crime scene, your energy drops which is described by a coffee cup. Apart from investigating crime scenes, you also have the option to discuss topics with characters and interrogate them with each other. This game isn’t the most interactive I’ve come across. The gameplay is slow, as you have to talk to all the accused to get information.

In the end, you have to charge and arrest one character, but if you don’t want to enjoy the longer gameplay, you can buy the instant capture option for $1.99.

If you like other games from Prof. Layton, you will also love this detective game. As a detective, you are presented with a crime scene reconstruction. To investigate, you can zoom in/examine the object and add it to the evidence. This game gives you the feeling of a real detective with the option to access the evidence files, statements, info of the accused while you are on a mission.

Although the gameplay is immersive and attention-grabbing, excessive conversation between characters might bore you, as it did for me. But if you are having a tough day and want to solve the case with dedication, your attention will not wander.

The first two stages of the game, namely The Hand Sandwich and The Bungled Burglary, are free, while the rest are available with in-app purchases.

This one is probably the most critically acclaimed game in the entire post and has received multiple ‘Game of the Year’ awards. The gameplay involves the player exploring a collection of videos in a police database. The goal is to solve the case of a missing man, by watching old videos of a woman (wife) and trying to uncover the clues.

Since you are viewing this video on an old computer, you have a limitation to only search a little at a time. Difficulty also increases because it is not in chronological order. So, you have to connect the dots to find the meaning of this video interview. Game mechanics are also stored on the old PC in the game.

Well, that’s the best Android detective game that you can try right away. Highly recommended games are Her Story and The Vigil Files. Both have gripping gameplay and are very well designed to keep curiosity high. However, both are paid. But if you want a free one and want a relaxing game, choose one between Find the Difference and Mr. detective.
