Great Local Multiplayer Android Games for Valentine's Day

Have fun together on your phone or tablet.

With Valentine's Day around the corner, there's nothing more fun to do with that special someone, someones, or your single friends all commiserating together to ignore that stupid holiday together, than video games, of course. Android is chock-full of great video games you can play together on your phones or tablets that are easy to get into when waiting for dinner or just hanging out. Here are several great games to play together. And if you're all alone for Valentine's Day, maybe these brutal roguelikes will help ease your mind?

Bounden
Game Oven Studios

The late, great Game Oven made this remarkably unique game about dancing with an actual ballet company. You and a partner must move in sync with the game to try and match the movements in play to dance properly. It's not like anything you've played and works best with a smaller phone. But it does work quite well, and it's a ton of fun. It won't really make sense until you play it, but this video recorded at Game Developers Conference in 2014 of me playing the game with one of the developers should reveal a bit about how it works.

DUAL!
Seabaa

This inventive game uses two devices facing each other to play, requiring you to look at the other player's screen in order to see what's going on. Competitive modes have you tilting to dodge shots and tapping to charge and fire to take out that other person. But in the spirit of Valentine's Day, why not play in the game's cooperative modes instead, where you work together to get high scores, but have to deal with the difficulties of being on different screens!

Astro Party
Rusty Moyher

You and up to 3 other players can get together and blast each other out in space in this frantic, competitive party game. If you have a phone, then only 2 people can go head to head, but get a tablet and enjoy 4 player gameplay. There will be asteroids, lasers, and chaos for all. More »

Wrassling
Colin Lane

This goofy physics game has you controlling a fine wrassler from Slamdovia, flailing your arms about in order to get your opponents out of the arena. Later updates to the game added in two players on the same device. Go head to head to try and wrassle each other out of the arena, or work together to wrassle as many AI wrasslers out of the ring as you possibly can. Either way, laughs are sure to be had. More »

Bam fu
Game Oven Studios

If Game Oven's Bounden is a little too cooperative for you, maybe a competitive showdown is in order. You tap to try and turn all the spots on the board to your color, but you'll be jostling back and forth with your fellow players in order to get your proper advantage. Many of Game Oven's titles used physical contact in clever ways like this, and it's a shame they're no longer making games together. More »

Blood Bowl

Blood Bowl
Focus Home Interactive

This one is only really for people that already understand how Blood Bowl works already. The digital version will not instruct you well in how to play or be good at Blood Bowl. But, this is a lot easier to dig into than the actual physical version of the game. If you're on a date with someone and they have fun with it, marry them ASAP. Or if you're trying to scare someone away from a Valentine's Day engagement you got roped into, well, this will probably work for that too.

Battle Slimes

Battle Slimes
Dodreams

This game features fantastic pixel art and gameplay that only requires one button as, you tap to make your slime character jump, trying to bop the other players. It's simple and accessible, perfect for passing a few minutes by pulling it up on your phone or tablet.

Neon Shadow

Neon Shadow
Crescent Moon Games

While this has a solid bevy of online multiplayer options, what if the person you want to play with is right in front of you? Well, if you have an Android tablet, you can actually play this retro-inspired cyberpunk FPS with another person. You can work together in a co-op campaign, or just blast each other in head-to-head deathmatch modes if that's more your speed.
