We deconstructed and play tested over 140 games inside the Academy in 2021 and focussed in on their game design, level design, UI and user experience.
It’s always such a hard choice to whittle down our Top 100 Hyper Casual Games of the Year as there’s a constant flow of new game releases each and every week.
Most of these are the games that stormed the charts, the hyper casual games you made the Top 10 on App Store, games from the biggest hyper casual publishers around today.
Our list doesn’t always mean the most successful or most downloaded however, there are other lists for that. More so, these are the games we play tested Live on our Weekly Design Show and most enjoyed in terms of fun and overall game quality.
Are you a Hyper Casual Game Designer or Developer?
You can watch all these games deconstructed in full along with dozens more inside the Academy, yup, we played every one of them!
Academy Membership includes Academy StoreSpy, Hyper Casual Elite, Academy Live, all our workshops, tools and courses covering every aspect of powerful, effective and creative hyper casual game design techniques.

Anyways, without further ado, here’s our list of the best hyper casual games to hit the market in 2020.
