Best Games on Android with High Text Contrast 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.

Reading: Each of these games has been assessed for how much reading or listening comprehension is required, and how accessible this is. Each game offers the following accessibility features and settings:

  • High Text Contrast: Text colour contrasts to background.
