sb game hackerThis is another very solid and reliable game hacking tool (memory editor) for Android that is very easy to use. Not quite feature-rich enough to be one of the best, but certainly one of the legitimate game modding apps out right now. Game Hacker APK runs a lot more reliably and is a lot faster than other memory editors and was initially built as a tool for developers to hide their values from cheaters. It is also incredibly easy to use, since it guides you basically through the process from the start and requires no knowledge whatsoever. SB Game Hacker APK can be downloaded here.

#7 Root File Explores

root file explorerApps 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.

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

#8 Lucky Patcher

lucky patcherLP 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 game 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 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. The latest version of Lucky Patcher can be downloaded here.

Features: Patch apps to include cheats, install / uninstall apps from the app, patch ads in games, level emulation, purchase emulation for free in-game purchases / free in-app purchase hacks for some games, root optional but not required

#9 Cheat Engine APK / EXE

cheat engine apkDespite being initially a PC tool, Cheat also released an Android APK version. Cheat Engine and its APK version can be used in 2 ways to cheat in Android games: Either you use the Cheat Engine Android APK version to modify game memory of your game directly. Or you use the PC version of CE to modify memory of an emulator. As time has come and gone, there have been multiple ways of how to modify PC Android emulator memory using Cheat Engine. While it has always been possible to do, at some times and through certain versions of Android it has been easier than at other times. You may want to play around with using old versions of certain emulators if the current ones are not doing the trick right now. The PC version of CE can be downloaded here. The APK version can be found here.

Features:  Memory editing on Android emulators, simple memory editor for Android, the most in-depth software there is on PC, not as good on Android, perfect for use on Android emulation tools to modify games indirectly

#10 APK Decompilation / Modding Tools

apk modding toolsThe 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, reverse-engineer modify and change resources and Smali machine code 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. – However, in our experience this suite of tools and methods is most suited to very advanced programmers or cheaters and is less so suited for newbies. On the other hand, APK modding tools work on all Android games and all Android games can be hacked using this method to some extent.

Features: APK modding works on any game to some extent, creates permanent cheats, best was to cheat in Android games, not for beginners or newbies, extremely difficult to learn and execute, works on all Android games

#11 Freedom APK

freedom apkAs the name might imply, this app makes in-app purchases free. Freedom app for Android basically allows you to emulate in-app purchases for 0$ and therefore allows you to get a lot of free stuff in some 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 store and enable you to get lots of free premium currency, gems, cash, unlimited money ect. – However, in our experience this app only works on a small subset of all Android games, as most the major-league Android mobile games use servers to validate in-app purchases. But on the games that do not use any online aspects and require no internet connection to play, yet still sell you microtransactions, this tool may very well work. Freedom APK app can be downloaded here.

Features: Free in-app purchases in some games, free premium currency, gems, diamonds, rubies, 0$ purchase hack

#12 Creehack

creehackAnother emulator / faker tool app for free game shop purchases on Android games. Creehack will simulate transactions 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. - Again, in our experience this only works on a smaller and smaller subset of games, but worth a shot if the other tools do not work. Creehack can be downloaded here.

Features: free in-app purchases, emulation for microtransaction payments

#13 Game Killer / Gamekiller APK

game killerGK is 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 our 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 Killer can be downloaded here.

Features: value Scan (exact value), value scan with vague directions, hex edit, save and load lists of addresses and edits

#14 GameCIH

gamecihThis is 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. GameCIH can be downloaded here.

Features:  root required, value scan and edit, google ads embedded, good user interface, first popular game hacking app for android, extremely old, compatible with older devices and emulators, not compatible with most modern Android devices and OS versions

#15 Xmodgames

xmodgamesThis is a new breed of APK modding on Android.

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. Xmodgames can be downloaded here.

Features:  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

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.
