4. Clash of Clans
Perhaps the most successful online strategy game on Android as well as iOS. Clash of Clans was responsible for taking the Supercell studio high.

An award-winning mobile tower defense game, Kingdom Rush Frontiers is one of the few paid titles on our list. Despite the large selection of games of the same type being distributed for free, it is easily one of those with the most content, constantly being updated with new types of enemies, heroes and abilities, among others.
A turn-based game, UniWar is a title that says a kind of "modern chess".

Another of the paid games on our list, Breach & Clear also exchanges gigantic armies for just one special operations squad.

The game features real-world squads, and though it's turn-based, the actions of your characters and opponents are executed simultaneously, requiring planning and the ability to predict opponents' actions.
12. Clash of Mafias
A sort of Clash of Clans from the criminal world, Clash of Mafias has similar mechanics, but uses and abuses comic characters.

18. 1942: Pacific Front
Direct sequel to predecessor, 1942: Pacific Front also deserves mention for its difference from the other.
