Micro Battles 2
This dead-simple 2-player same-device game could easily be overlooked as a result of its 8-bit graphics, but don’t be fooled!

Free users are limited to a daily “free spin”, randomly choosing the game available for the day, with the others locked. You will have the choice to either play a tank based game, whereby tapping and tapping and holding controls both forward movement and the firing, first to five points wins.
In the second game you each control a frog, aiming to reach five points first by hopping into flies on-screen, tap, hold then release to hop.
Thirdly you duel as pirates, aiming to off each other five times with a sword, this is a favorite of many.
Lastly you play a simple space shooter. Given the addictive nature of this game, many opt to purchase it to be able to pick what they want to play. All four games are lots of fun though, making this a fantastic 2 player game for Android.
