    "Why do so many mobile games force you to be online when you're playing? Argh, I hate that. Well, I found a great one that lets you play offline on Android! Make More! is SO awesome - you can play offline, and it even keeps playing for you when you're not actually in the game. Perfect time killer when you're waiting in line, waiting at the dentist or doc, or waiting anywhere else (since they don't make you be online, wooHOO). There are a ton of ads, but honestly it doesn't even matter because I'm so thrilled that I can play even just one offline Android game :)"

    "I've been playing Minecraft Pocket edition for a few weeks now. I didn't purchase it for a long time because I didn't think it would be as fun on a mobile device. I was wrong! It's just as fun and addicting as playing on the computer, plus I can play whenever I'm out and about waiting on something or someone. It's especially handy on my 45 minute train commute to and from work every day. If you aren't hesitating to buy this app, dont!"

    "I tried this game out on my galaxy s5 and was amazed at the features and design. It runs really well, just as if i were playing it on a console. They didn't water the worlds down, there are 8 to explore, and 40 different powers to learn. You can also build your own light saber and there are achievements that make the game that much more fun. so worth the money!"

    "A really fun and challenging tower defense game. Lots of planning and strategizing which I like. The further I get into the game the more challenging and more strategizing I have to do which just adds to the fun. Overall I'm enjoying this game and it's what I was looking for, a challenging and fun game that works offline."

    "Ugh. I hate Angry Birds. It's terrible at being always online; I love taking the metro to work and playing a few games on the 'droid while I wait, so I need offline games. I downloaded this the night before a particularly long ride and was absolutely pissed when I saw the game needed me online."

I am often stuck in places with no internet or mobile service so I needed to find a game I can play without any service and this game was perfect for me. It is a very addictive game about cooking food and making sure a food business is successful."

    "I am a gamer, but there are times when I am away from home and can't play on my PC or my console. I also have the problem that I am from a small town and don't always have access to a wifi connection. That why I was thrilled to find this RPG thriller. I can play it offline and not have to worry about using any of my data plan so I can save my data for other things like streaming videos. If you are looking for a fun game and love RPG definitely check this out."

    "I was looking for an offline game since I don't want to waste my data and this game is visually beautiful, was immediately visually stimulating to me, then I was surprised how much like every song playing I heard while I played the game. Really a fun, light hearth but pretty challenging game. I spent hour hours to an hour really often playing this game when I didn't plan too."

    "If someone is looking for games to play offline, I don’t believe that downloading this app would solve that issue. Nowhere in the description does it state that you can play offline, this is a RPG that you can enjoy but it does not help you find any “offline Android games” like the problem is requesting."

Maxwell and save the galaxy from destruction by the hands of ruthless alien raiders, space pirates and power-crazy madmen."

    "When I was looking for offline games for my Android, I was thinking more in terms of idle games to pass the time, like a Flappy Bird or a simulation game. I never even thought about a turn-based RPG, and this one does look like a lot of fun. I'm not crazy about spending money on games, though, and $4.49 is a bit on the steep side for Android. If I have a little extra money kicking around come payday, I might check it out."

I don't see any mention of it requiring a connection to play, either in the game description or in the comments, so it can be said that it is a solution."

    "Star Wars is one of the best offline RPG Android games ported to Android from PC. The Knights of the Old Republic has a lengthy story with many ends depending on the choices made by you while playing. The graphics are attractive, and you can ask questions if you are confused about the game. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has achievements which make it appealing to play this game. It is not easy to finish it in a short span time and takes time to collect proper character which helps you get out of the game successfully."

    "The idea of the game is very nice and gameplay is very exciting, this one is for all the soccer fans. This is one of the most popular sports apps that I have ever used and I must say that it is very addicting, the graphics is good and the game modes offer enough variety to keep one occupied for hours. The offline option is simply too convenient, one can play anywhere and anytime discreetly. The only downside is that the animations can be a bit distracting on the screen and using this app on a smartphone means one has to navigate all these options on a small screen."

It is particularly bad because the game isn't even the first game in the series so just starting it would add an additional level of annoyance because I would not be familiar with the story."
