There has been massive interest in deer hunting games in particular, but there are many other things you can choose to hunt. Just a few examples are dinosaurs, alligators, and ducks, while the ever-popular zombie genre also raises its head. Looking through the Google Play Store for thrilling hunting games can be an exhaustive task, though, so we’ve undertaken the task of whittling down the wide choice to our pick of top hunting games.

These best hunting games for Android cover a wide variety of environments and situations. All of the hunting and shooting apps below are free to download, although the majority also offer in-app purchases (IAPs) for additional gameplay, upgrades, power-ups, and more. It’s also worth saying that some of these games rely on IAPs more than others. If you can’t wait to get a taste of hunting, check out any of these apps for an adrenalin rush without any animals actually getting harmed.

Deer Hunter from Glu is one of the most well-known hunting games. It has a huge amount to offer, but we should warn that although it’s free to download, the in-app purchases can add up to a tidy sum!

You’ll need to develop your arsenal by collecting and customizing weapons. As you line up your sights to take your shot, the game feels extremely convincing, and if you become the prey, you’ll start feeling the pressure.

If it’s an underwater hunting experience you’re after, this is your game, although not if you’re scared of sharks! Shark Hunting is a challenging experience, and even though we knew it was a game, it didn’t stop us feeling nervous and edgy.

It has some great underwater effects, and shark hunters can choose from two game modes. In Survival Mode, you’ll need to have your wits about you to avoid becoming shark bait, while in Hunter Mode, you’ll be shooting sharks and will lose lives if you fail to hit. You’ll need to remain really focused on the task in hand, and it gets a big tick from us. The only criticism we have is that it can get a bit repetitive, and it would be good to see the game expanded to cover more underwater creatures.

You’ll need to gather a potent arsenal of weapons, anything from crossbows to rocket launchers, to hunt and kill brutal beasts such as the infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex or Stegosaurus. The action takes place on a Jurassic island, and you’ll come across jungles, coast, and a bad dinosaur boneyard.

One wrong move, though, and you could find yourself another victim of Bigfoot, so be careful out there!

Hunting Simulator 4×4 is a real treat from Oppana Games. A highlight that makes this one stand out is the use of off-road vehicles and trailers for carrying away the animals you manage to down. The larger the beast, the more money you earn, and you can then get better and larger vehicles to reach the outer areas of the map and more various quarry.
