There are a lot of great visual novels for desktop and other platforms, but what about Android? Let's take a look at the best visual novels to play on Android.
This list has appealing titles that you can play on your Android device, which focuses on engaging stories and gameplay to give you a good time on your mobile.
Not all of the games added are on Google Play, but most of them are, some are free and some are not, but remember that the free games often have ads, but hopefully not on an exaggerated amount.
I didn't include technical requirements, as I believe most games will run fine on most devices, this genre isn't known for using too many system resources, and on the other hand, older games made for an older Android version may show problems on newer versions.
