A Complete Guide To Install HD Games with CACHE, APK & OBB files on all Android Devices


...
Both geeks and game lovers do agree that HD games are really amazing on Android devices, merely staring at the size of one which could be as large as 350 to 400MB, it takes a whole lot of patience downloading a game that size, after the long wait, frustration starts when you get stuck at the process of Installing and Playing that awesome game on your Droid device, well, this should give us easiest tips on how we can solve this.

After reading this Post,
  • You should be able to get the Best HD games for your Android.
  • You should be able to know the right folders to Unpack or Paste Game files so you can Install and Play it successfully.

Android games with cache usually come in two files, mainly
- APK
- and OBB files
The APK is first installed, (you may launch it if required), this will create folder(s), where the OBB files will be placed.

I prepared A real good example;


How I installed CONTRACT KILLER 2, On My Android 4.0.4 (Ice cream Sandwich) device

1. Download the game cache -
i. CK2v2.0.0.apk
ii. CK2v2.0.0.zip


Now use a File Explorer, There are so many File Explorers to use for this, like ES Explorer, but I make use of WinZip, get WinZip for Android here
Which ever one that is easy for you, just use it to find the game CK2v2.0.0.zip

2.  When you open the CK2v2.0.0.zip with your WinZip, you should find the content inside like the screenshot below

install HD Android games


3. Extract/Unzip the contents which is inside the CK2v2.0.0.zip  into the same folder in your Memory card, after extracting, the content should be a folder with name "CK2.0.0data"

 i.e >>> /mnt.sdcard/.Winzip/files/CK2v20.zip/CK2v2.0.0data


 4. Go back to your CK2v2.0.0.apk, Launch it,
It will prompt to connect to internet, Accept, once it downloads upto 3MB, Cancel it.
A Folder is Automatically created for you to place your game data.

5. Now, go to where you extracted CK2.0.0data, open the folder, you should see another Folder in it named "com.glu.contractkiller2"  Copy the folder

Again, go to : sdCard >> Android >> obb >> Paste the game data folder here
Your items should look like the screenshot below


install HD games on Android

And we are done!

Go to your Menu, and Launch the Game, it will Load and play successfully
To get more HD Games visit Android Mob

CONCLUSION:

Large Android games can install, depending on your device-type, the game file extension (and) or website from which you downloaded the game from. Some Android Games come in Full, zipped in one folder, others come in parts, which you'll have to download each part and merge them into one folder, then you'll still have to come here and follow the steps to Install and Play it.

Did the steps above work for you? Or you still go through problems installing any Game on your Android device, let us know by dropping a comment.
Peace!

  2. Hi, when im installing on my phone it takes up double the space, example being that I tried to install the xcom obb and apk but when im copying it into the obb folder its saying theres an error and it uses up all the space on my phone. Ive installed games before without any issue and never really noticed more space being taken up but this one is really stumping me.

  3. Hi, I hav downloaded gta sanandreas but it has 3 files 1.(1.51gb)obb, 2.(256mb)and 3.(10mb)apk file I placed the obb file but now what about that 256mb file anyways game's not starting

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Install the (10mb).apk first
      then go to your Android >> OBB folder, then move the remaining both file 1 and 2 into the Android >> OBB folder.
      Go back, and start the game
      Hope this works for you.

    1. Hi Vaibhav Patil.
      if you get msg blink on screen or fail errors. then something is wrong with the Game's data, pls download the game from another site, and make sure your Android is rooted, some games need root access for it to install and play on Android.

  9. What if you download a game but you've only got the APK file and no DATA or OBB? Im trying to install the new Mojang game, Scrolls, for my LG G3, but ive only got the APK.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It depends on the game size, some use only files which you'll place in the folder >> Android/Data/file
      But heavy games use OBB files which goes to Android/obb/
      Hope that answers your question. Thanks for dropping by

  11. A for effort, but Nope - it doesn't work!
    I installed contract killer 2 v3.0.3, then opened it and it says "download failed because you may not have purchased this app"
    regardless, I then cleared the cache, created the correctly named wallet folder inside the Android\data\ folder
    and also created the correctly named(com.g..) folder inside the Android\obb\ folder & placed the *.obb file in it

    started up the app and it still only says: "download failed because you may not have purchased this app"

    1. Hi Watchu Tawkin,
      Perhaps it could be the version of Contract Killer 2 that you have, please Download this one HERE . Install the APK, Don't do anything with folder called DATA,
      just put the com.glu.contractkiller2.obb inside the OBB directory > sdcard >> Android >> OBB
      that's what I used, Hope it works for you too

    1. Hi Ani,
      I suggest you take off the com.ea folder(1.95gb) from the Android/data
      Un-install the APK and Install again. Now open it, Allow connection to download some Data of the game. Then replace the com.ea folder(1.95gb) with that small Data that you downloaded with the APK. Hope it works.

    Replies
    1. after reading your comment, I tried WipeOut 2 and it installed on my Kitkat Android. When you open the game, press cancel when you see "Sign-in error" or "you're ask to update playstore to latest version" , just press cancel, the game will ignore and start.

    1. hi petsam, if you see only the Obb folder after extracting the 672mb, then You'll need to download the APK seperately from another site, you didn't tell us which GTA you want to install, is it GTA Vice city? or GTA San Andreas so we can find the right APK for you

    Pls guide me.

    1. Hi Mahadeva Swamy M,
      I am not Sure the game will Work after you move the OBB to the new location.
      I advice that you back up the OBB file in your PC, and backup the APK too, then Uninstall it from your Asus. You will need to Start over and install it in your External disk (new location).
      If you wish to continue game where you stopped, solution is to back up the Asphalt 8 "Data" Folder, you will find the data folder in-- Android/Data/

      Hope that helps

  19. Hi! I need some help regarding this procedure. II've downloaded an apk & OBB data of visible body atlas. I installed the apk & extracted the data & certificates from the OBB file and moved it to storage/sdcard0/Android/OBB but the app won't work. I repeated the procedure several times (btw, i used archiver & rar) but it only says "download failed because the app couldn't find resource file" or something like that. I tried it on my htc & oppo but the same problem occurs. Please help, thanks in advance! :D

    1. Hi Aria,
      Uninstall and try this....
      If you take a close look at the file names, the APK file for the game ends in.APK
      and the Data ends in .obb.
      The certificates for that game cannot be with the Obb hence cannot be saved in the "storage/sdcard0/Android/OBB" folder. Look closely, if you have a folder with name "Data" , inside the folder, depending on how the game was extracted by the Uploader, but you re meant to see another folder having the Game name, now move this Folder to "storage/sdcard0/Android/Data"
      Then move file name with .OBB to "storage/sdcard0/Android/OBB
      Launch the game again and let's see if that works.

      Some games need you to get both the Apk, data and Obb. Download the game data from another site which you will put inside the Android /data.
      Now put the Obb file in the right folder as you did before. It should work that way. Hope that answers it

    1. Hello George, thanks for the compliments.
      Some games just crash during game play, the reason is usually from development stage when producing the games. Such error is not in our own power to fix, but there might be patches for it. So search online for Patch file for that game.
