Choosing the best multiplayer games on Android is a huge task, when you think about it.
Unlike most of our other round-ups, we're not talking about a single genre here. Indeed, there are multiplayer games in pretty much every genre, from racing games to platformers.
There's also a great deal of variation in the concept of multiplayer itself. There's shared-handset, local multi-handset, and online multiplayer, and you could probably assemble a separate list for each.
Suddenly that top 25 allotment isn't looking quite so generous. Think of this list, instead, as a rounded overview of the Android multiplayer game scene. The only rule that we're setting for ourselves is that the games feature social play as a core component. Oh, and that that they're really good.
