Best Mystery Games for Android

1. Life is Strange

We start with what we can almost say one of the best on this list and that comes from one of the greats: Square Enix . Graphically it is great, as is the atmosphere created and the whole story that you will go through with characters very well worked on the script. You are going to explore the fictional city of Arcadia Bay in Oregon and a series of student friends in which some have powers that are not of this world. Five episodes, from which the first one is free and for the rest you will have to go through the box. Indispensable as a mystery game.

Another mysterious game that in 2008 was the best portable game. It landed this year on Android and puts you before all the mystery that you have to solve with Professor Layton. It has that very European visual touch and it will make you discover very interesting stories with a great original soundtrack. It is based on the books by Atama No Taisou, or what would be gymnastics for the mind of Akira Tago. Prepare for more than 100 puzzles, HD remastered and minigames to discover the fragments of a mysterious painting and much more.
