    There are some games I couldn't find on Google Play and some are not available in my country. I am considering download them from other websites, is there a high possibility of getting malware injection from doing so? Thanks so much for your comments :)

    Unless it is associated with a reputable firm, I would not download apps from anywhere except Google Play, for the very reason you mentioned. Not only could be a problem with malware, but you could also get a fake version of the app, rather than the one you are expecting. I would especially avoid websites that are set up simply as download sites, with no information about the company itself. You never know what you could be getting.
