1-Call of Duty: Mobile
Call Of Duty: Mobile continues to be at the top of the pack for mobile FPS games, now having entered Season 1 New Order with its latest theme and a new collection of weapons.
You’ll have an all-new battle pass to chase, new maps to play on, and other new challenges to overcome.
As multiplayer FPS games go, none is more iconic than the Call of Duty franchise. And if this season is your first experience with Call of Duty: Mobile, you’ll surely be surprised at how good it actually is.
As a free-to-play title, you don’t have to pay a thing to progress through the game and earn rewards. Though, you do get extra unlocks if you pick up the battle pass. The nice thing is that you can earn enough of the in-game currency used to buy the battle pass without having to spend any real money. If you play enough.
Genshin Impact is a shoo-in for 2020’s best mobile game of the year, and it’s one of 2020’s best games of the year in general. As it can also be played on PC and on PS5/PS5. One of the reasons it’s so great is that your progress can be shared between the PC and mobile versions.
So you can start playing on one platform and continue playing on another if you so choose. Genshin Impact is an anime-style open-world action RPG, with numerous characters you can acquire to add to your party. There are hundreds of quests, a fairly developed storyline, and loads of monsters, secrets, achievements, and more to complete.
The game’s developers, miHoYo, are also constantly adding new content to the game with new patches. The most recent one in fact was just released back at the beginning of February. In addition to everything else, Genshin Impact has some of the most gorgeous combat of any mobile game. And it’s consistently getting good reviews from players and content creators alike. Definitely check this one out because it’s probably the best game on this list.
GWENT finally launched on Android a little bit earlier this year and brings some of the game’s most popular elements to mobile users.
GWENT of course is a game that was first introduced in The Witcher 3, as a mini-game you could play against opponents in taverns. Now CD Projekt Red has turned it into a fully-fledged card game that you can play against other players.
It isn’t exactly like the version of GWENT in The Witcher 3, but it carries plenty of the same characteristics. If you’re a fan of The Witcher series and TCG games, don’t miss out on GWENT because it’s one of the best in a long while.
Though the gameplay is fun and easy to learn, the graphics and visual effects are another wonderful part of this game. And it’s part of why GWENT was one of our picks for the best Android games list this month.
4-League Of Legends: Wild Rift
League Of Legends: Wild Rift is finally available in the US and other countries within the Americas. While it’s not quite available everywhere yet, Riot is quickly expanding where the open beta is available and is continuing to add more territories to the game where allowed.
Whether you’ve played League Of Legends on PC or this is going to be your first time, the game is extremely well polished and easy to get into. With helpful hints and top-notch tutorials, you’ll be making big plays in no time.
Gameplay is a lot like the PC version but scaled down for mobile devices and touchscreen controls. With an array of champions at your fingertips and well-tuned mechanics, the pinnacle of MOBA games has made its way to mobile. Be forewarned though. Once you pick it up you’ll find it hard to put down.
If you live in one of the supported regions, do yourself a favor and try out what is probably the best game on mobile right now.
If you want a battle royale experience on mobile that is primarily battle royale, look no further than PUBG MOBILE. The first battle royale game to arrive and popularize the genre. Yes, even before Fortnite.
PUBG MOBILE just recently went into its newest season and has added loads of fun new content to check out. Including the new Runic Power Mode from the trailer above.
While PUBG MOBILE is mostly focused on its main battle royale mode, there are other modes of play too. Like a 4v4 mode which is more akin to a Team Deathmatch style of gameplay.
GRIS is equal parts emotional and visually striking. And it’s these two things together with the lack of any vocal context that really makes this an amazing game.
There’s more to it than that of course. GRIS features excellent music to help really lift the overall mood of the game. And it plays rather harmoniously with the gameplay and visual storytelling.
GRIS also features platforming elements and puzzles that aren’t too difficult. In fact, they have just the right amount of difficulty to keep you interested but not enough to induce frustration or push away the player.
You can even partake in optional challenges that are skill-based if you feel like you do need something that is a bit harder. GRIS is definitely one of the best Android games available today, and it’s really one of the best games available in general.
This is also a paid game with no ads or microtransactions. So it’s a one-time buy and you can enjoy it as much as you want without having to spend another dime.
7-War Of The Visions
War Of The Visions is the latest mobile Final Fantasy game to hit Android. It’s part of the same universe as Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, but it features an all-new story that isn’t tied to the original FFBE.
What makes this such an interesting game is the graphical style and gameplay. It’s a tactical RPG much like Final Fantasy Tactics, and it even has the same design.
If you play other Final Fantasy games then you’ll also love the fact that Square Enix will do collaborations from time to time. The first one for instance was a collaboration between this game and Final Fantasy XIV.
Which allowed players to pick up characters specific to that MMO entry in the franchise. War of The Visions features everything from hours of gameplay to really fantastic voice-over work. Definitely give it a shot.
8-Sky: Children of Light
If you ever played Journey from that game company inc, check out Sky: Children of Light. It’s developed by the same game studio and it more or less looks like a mobile version of Journey.
It is of course its own game. While it looks like Journey and sort of plays like Journey, it’s not Journey. It has an original story and it’s own gameplay elements to fall in love with.
Just like Journey though, there won’t be much text dialogue or any vocal dialogue. Most of the game’s story is told through visual and audio. And that’s part of what makes the game so magical.
Sky will be an evolving game that will have more content added to it over time. That gives it some more value and even if you happen to beat it faster than you’d have liked, you can come back to it later once more
content is added in future updates.
9-Legends of Runeterra
Legends of Runeterra is one of the few new games that Riot was looking to bring to its fans. Moving away from the massively popular League of Legends MOBA game for PC.
Legends of Runeterra officially launched on April 30 and is a trading card game. It’s similar to games like GWENT (which is also on this list), and Hearthstone.
It pits you against other players in PvP card battles where you duke it out for supremacy on the game board using your best deck. Cards are based on characters and abilities from the League of Legends universe, too, so LoL players may find themselves becoming familiar with Legends of Runeterra faster than they anticipate.
You can play the game solo, against friends, or random opponents online. But there is certainly a level of strategy to the game you will need to become accustomed to. If you thrive on games that require you to think tactically in order to win, this shouldn’t disappoint.
10-Crash Bandicoot: On The Run!
There’s a reason endless runner games are so popular on mobile and it’s because they’re fun to play and they’re easy to learn.
Crash Bandicoot: On The Run is the latest endless runner game to hit Android, and it’s absolutely worth grabbing if you like this style of gameplay. The game features all your favorite characters from the franchise’s original games. Including Crash, Dr. Neo Cortex, and more.
It’s easy to pick up and play too, so it’s great even if you only have five minutes to spare. Plus it’s free. And you can’t really argue with that when you’re getting a game of this quality.
Gameplay controls are simple, which is an important factor for this type of game, and, there are lots of content to blow through from story-related dialogue to unlockable characters you will want to chase.
