Games on Android with Bright Colourful Palette Accessibility Settings

Android smartphones and tablet devices can run the same games. The operating system offers similar features to Apple's iOS on iPhone and iPad, but for non-Apple hardware made by a range of manufacturers. This means that these devices are usually cheaper.

Android games can use the motion controls, touch screen as well as connect Bluetooth gamepads and controllers. You can also send the game visuals and sound to a TV to play games more like a console.

As part of our accessibility review, this page lists games that have been flagged with accessibility settings in the following areas.
