gameguardian logo GameGuardian

One of the best memory editors and Android game hacking apps to date. It offers what you would expect from a good value scanner, plus a lot of extra functionality, such as speed hacks, and scanning for unknown values. If you are looking for anything that comes close to a Cheat Eingine for Android phones and emulators, then this is the app that you are looking for.

It is relatively easy to use and completely free. However, some very basic knowledge of how values in games work is useful, especially if you are trying to sue the extended functions or are trying to come up with your own hex value edits. At the moment the Best Android Game Hacking App out there!


- Value Scanning / Memory Editing

sb game hacker apk logoSB Game Hacker APK

A very solid and reliable game hacking too for android that is very easy to use. Not quite complex enough to get the number one spot, but certainly one of the top cheating apps right now. Originally this was published on Mandarin (Chinese), but has been translated into English as well. It runs a lot more reliably and is a lot faster than other memory editors.

SB Game Hacker also offers built in functionality to detect common and simple ways for developers to hide their values, such as simple multiplication. It is also incredibly easy to use, since it guides you basically through the process from the start and requires no knowledge whatsoever. A very good app.

- Value Scan (exact value)
- Auto Value Type Detection
- Hex Scans and Hex edits
- Automated detection for multiplied and encrypted values
- Very easy to use and beginner friendly

freedom apk logoFreedom APK

This is an app that basically allows you to emulate in-app purchases for 0$ and therefore allows you to get a lot of free stuff in Android games. It works for a huge number of the popular non-online (offline) games. However, it does require a root in order to emulate the fake purchases through the playstore and enable you to get lots of free premium currency.

I like this one a lot, since it enables you to hack some of the android games that cannot be hacked with simple memory editing and changing values, because the values are either hidden too well, stored in the cloud of otherwise protected by checks and balances. Awesome tool and I recommend it highly. It is completely legal to use, since all it does is edit data on your device. Nothing more.

- Free in-app purchases

- Free currency
- 0$ purchase hack
- That’s all it does but its awesome!

lucky patcher logoLucky Patcher (No Root / Root)

Lucky Patcher is mostly an awesome app that allows you to install and manage apps on a rooted device and install new system apps, but it also allows you to patch APKs to remove ads, generate hacked APK files, emulate levels and premium in-app purchases and so on. An awesome tool that can be used to create modded / hacked APK files even without a rooted phone. Its my favorite tool on Android in general as it can be used for almost anything including hacking mobile games.

Without a rooted phone, this app will only really be able to generate modded APKs, so having a rooted device is still recommended, but not necessary.

- Generate modded / hacked APKs

- Install / uninstall apps
- Patch ads in games
- Level emulation
- Purchase emulation for free purchases

modded hacked apk logoModded / Hacked APK Files

This is more of a “way” to hack games, rather than an app or tool. However, it is one of the more popular ones, if potentially harmful as well. Modded APK files are essentially the same APKs that you install when you download a game from the playstore or a website. However, these hacked APK files have been tampered with: They have been decompiled, modded to include cheats hardcoded into the game, and then recompiled.

This way of hacking game is incredibly popular, since it does not require you to have a rooted phone, it works for online games to a certain extent, it is easy to simply install an APK and play and the cheats are as good as they get with any tool.

So then why is this method on the last place? It is because there are a lot of shady sites out there that may infect your phone and your devices by spreading fake modded APKs. Modded APKs are also very easy for online game providers to ban, making it very likely that your account gets banned after using public hacks for online games. So it is really the risk associated it, not the hacks themselves that put this on the last spot of my list.

- no root required
- hardcoded / modded cheats for online and offline games
- very risky to use on online games
- very risky to download from fandom sites

android game bot macroBots / Macros

Automation is a very powerful tool in today’s Android mobile games, especially the online games that cant usually cannot be hacked any other way in some cases. It allows you to farm money, gems, collect daily rewards and daily quests, spend your stamina on farming items ect and all that fully AUTOMATICALLY. A bot will literally play the game for you and simple macro bots can even be created yourself for any game that you want to automate tasks in.

While setting up a game bot will take some time, it is one of the best cheating techniques out there and closest thing to an actual money/gems generator these days with all the server-side processing of values in online mobile games.

- Works for online games
- Can be created by yourself
- Automated farming / free reward opening
- runs 24/7/365

cheat engine logoCheat Engine

Cheat Engine is initially a PC cheating tool, and without a doubt the best of its kind, but recently they have also released an Android APK version. Cheat Engine can be used in 2 ways to cheat in Android games:

  1. Either you use Cheat Engine on your PC to hack games running on an emulator on your Windows PC, which can be highly effective and follows the usual procedure of scanning for values, changing them ect. This is the most effective way of using CE to cheat in mobile games there is at the moment.
  2. You can use the Android version of CE to use as an alternative to other memory editors, such as GameGuardian or SB Game Hacker. However, CE for Android APK is currently not up to par with other similar apps, which is why I would recommend that you either wait for updates or simply use the other apps. Also this tool will require a rooted device.

- Memory editing on Android emulators
- The most in-depth software there is on PC
- Not as good on Android


file explorer logoFile Explorers

Apps such as Root Explorer are called File System Explorers and they basically require root access, but provide you with the ability to browse, copy and paste, change, look at any files on your Android device. This not only allows you to sniff through game files, but also to change your savegames in offline Android games, go change game files to mod the game difficulty, change ingame prices, change starting money and resources, changing health ect. For some filetypes, such as .db and .sql databases you will still need a PC to actually edit them in most cases, but this is a viable option for hacking a game when direct memory editing fails for some reason (mostly value encryption). If you want to be a pro Android game hacker, you need one of these on your phone for sure.

They are also useful beyond just cheating in games and allow you to search for specific filenames on your phone, which is useful when trying to get rid of files that may be detected by online games.

- browse all files on your Android device
- view, copy, paste, edit files
- highly useful for savegame modding / hacking


creehack logoCreehack APK

Another emulator / faker for free game shop purchases. This app will simulate playstore and turn real money purchases into 0$ cost payments that do not require any payment methods connected, allowing you to get free gems and premium stuff in games that do not have to be connected to the internet. It will not work for online game apps that need to be connected to game servers to run, since those usually store your inventory, money and gems on the servers which cannot be edited using any tools.

All you do is start, enable, start your game, go to store and purchase stuff for real money. If your purchase cost I $0, it works, tap pay and you are good. If this does not work for you game, disable data, try to log into the game, if it works try another payments emulator like Freedom APK.

button download

- Free in-app purchases
- Emulation for Playstore Payments



game killer logoGame Killer / Gamekiller APK

Another good memory editor to hack almost any game on your Android os. Allows you to search for values and edit them, provides HEX editor functionality and allows you to save and load memory locations. Allows you to search using vague directions, such as value increased or value decreased aside from exact number scans.

In my personal opinion this serviceable, but you might struggle to get it to work on certain emulators. Some people say that this does not require a root, but that logically makes no sense at all, since it has to access other apps to work and that is impossible without a rooted device.

Game Hacker external Download

- Value Scan (exact value)
- Value scan with vague directions
- Hex Edit
- Save and Load lists of addresses and edits


gamecih logoGameCIH APK

One of the first and most popular memory editors that have ever been released for Android devices. However, the app has not been updated since 2012 and has stopped working for some devices. However, it does still work for many people and has to be mentioned, if for nothing else, then because it was the first Android game editing app that ever got very popular. It allows you to easily scan for values and then edit them.

This app is perfect for older phones with outdated firmware and Android OS, also an alternative to the more recent value editors if nothing else works for your device of the specific game you are looking to cheat in. This app as all of these memory tools, will require root privileges to complete scans and change numbers in your phone memory.

- Root required

- Value scan and edit
- Google ads embedded
- Good user interface
- First popular game hacking app for android



apk decompile compile tools logoAPK Decompilation/Compilation Tools

The Decompiling of APK files is the foundation of APK modding in which a decompiler program takes the (game) APK and decompiles it into the basic resources and scripts that make up the APK game packet. – This then allows the modder to edit, modify and change resources and scripts inside the Game in order to either implement visual changes or cheats, such as unlimited money and gems for offline games, wallhacks, speedhacks, automated actions ect for online mobile games. At the end of the process, the APK is recompiled and ready for use as a cheat.

What exact tool is used in decompiling and recompiling APK files is not important. However, there are certain tools that are able to recompile signed APKs more easily than your average zip/rar software. Also this kind of cheat will require the user to have access to a PC/mac for obvious reasons, since it is needed to modify the complex inner workings of the game app and engage working hacks.

button download

- Works on any game to some extent
- Creates permanent cheats that can be used over and over
- Editing the Java code inside a decompiled APK is almost like rocket science, but a lot harder to do.
- You HAVE to be skilled at programming and Java in particular to REALLY hack / mod APK files yourself. There is no way around it.


xmodgames logoXmodgames

This is a new breed of APK modding on Android. Xmodgames essentially is a launcher that allows you to install mods enabling cheating options onto your games, then launch those games and even allows you to access advanced option in the game itself. Xmodgames even allows for the running of Lua Scripts (Bots) that can automatically perform actions such as raiding, collecting rewards, doing social reward collection ect. Xmod Games is arguably a very good alternative to straight up downloading modded APKs from random websites with added benefits.

However, the downside to using this launcher is that online games are starting to ban people that have xmodgames files on their phone no matter if they used it on that game or not. So do be very careful and please don’t use this on your online games before testing it on a separate device on a dummy account.

- Easy installation of mods on your games
- Easy download and running of bots
- Modded APKs
- Works on online games
- requires Root
- easily detectable and bannable


android emulatorEmulators with Macros / Keymapping and Fake GPS

Emuators are another incredible way to cheat in games in new ways and also a way to make game hacking on Android safer, faster, less of a hassle and to minimize risk. There are a select few emulators that are not only compatible with almost every cheating app out there, but they allow you to map keys to control taps, making games easier to control and more responsive, a cheat in itself really, and they also provide macro functionality, multiboxing support, fake GPS / virtual GPS location services for Games like Pokemon Go that use your GPS location for gameplay and on top of everything else they come either pre-rooted, allow you to turn root on and off or are very easily rooted using external tools. The best thing is that you do not risk breaking your phone, rooting these devices. If something goes wrong, you simply uninstall the software, reinstall it and tabula rasa, you can start afresh and no harm is done.

Overall emulators are another very powerful tool in your Android game hacker tool kit that provides you not only an awesome gaming platform, but a sandbox to test things before messing around with your actual Android phone or tablet. You can find these emulators here.

- easy root / already rooted emulator
- no chance to break your phone
- keymapping, controller emulation
- fake GPS location for games
- better performace than Phones / Tablets
- compatible with more game hacking apps


private game serversPrivate Servers

A way of cheating is online games (only) on Android that has beomce increasingly popular in the more recent times. As more games move to online only, people have started creating their own servers that are usually emulating the original game servers to give the player unlimited gems, money, resources ect. Essentially they can give you anything and everything you want to have in any game. HOWEVER, they are incredibly hard to reverse-engineer and create, unless the devs are giving out the original server-side software, you having cheats won’t be special, because on most private or simulated game servers, everyone has cheats and you will need a special APK client to even connect to the private server.

So while in very rare cases this is the most awesome and powerful cheat available on mobile, in most cases private servers will be incredibly underwhelming, not because they don’t give you cheats, but because your cheats won’t be anything special at all.

You can find Private Servers using HackerBot FreeFinder.


Best Way Hacking Games without a Rooted Phone (NO ROOT)

If you are looking for a way to use all these apps with NO ROOTED device, then the only way to go is to use an emulator instead. Some emulators can be easily rooted and others are already rooted when you download and install them. You can find Android emulators for Windows and Mac HERE.

Besides using VMs/Emultors, the only way to be able to cheat in every game is to use modded APKs, because a lot of the tools above will simply not work without a root. – You can use HackerBot APK to find legitimate working APK mods and if that is not what you are looking for either, you can find a list of apps that do not require any kind of root and are able to implement cheats into games HERE.

We also have a list for Top iOS Game Hack Apps, if you are on that mobile gaming platform. Also there are no iOS emulators that would make cheating easier.
