5 Dragon Ball Legends
Dragon Ball Legends
- May 17, 2018
- BNE Entertainment , Dimps
Dragon Ball is a huge name in the anime and game world, so it would only be fitting that Bandai Namco brought their A-game to mobile platforms with Dragon Ball Legends. From the iconic landscapes of the original series and the flair of the 2D anime art style, players will feel right at home as they embark on their journey with a new protagonist, the Saiyan called Shallot.
The strategic card-action combat will allow players to assemble just the right team of beloved characters from the series with some of the smoothest and most intuitive control schemes in the mobile games market. Players can take part in intense online PvP battles, or go solo against AI in the main campaign, seasonal events, and other modes as the developers continue to push new content updates regularly. The best bit about all of this is that Dragon Ball Legends can be downloaded as a free-to-play experience.
4 Diablo Immortal
- June 2, 2022
- Action RPG
Blizzard brings the authentic dark-fantasy RPG experience of the Diablo series to Android and iOS devices with Diablo Immortal. A free-to-play game grandiose in scale and amount of content, Diablo Immortal almost sounds too good to be true. Despite having a good deal of microtransactions, Blizzard’s continuous community support to add new gear, quests, and competitive events to the game year-upon-year makes this game a solid outing that will give fans of the hack-and-slash RPG genre a bang for their buck.
Diablo Immortal: Best PvP Classes
Players looking to dominate Diablo Immortal’s PvP battlefields should try these classes.
All the loot-hunting, dungeon-raiding, and character-upgrading that fans have come to expect from the series is ever so prevalent in Diablo Immortal, now with a smooth user experience and touchscreen-optimized controls. The journey to max out a character may be long, but at least players can experience it on the go, and on a portable platform.
3 Call Of Duty Mobile
Another established franchise that makes its mark on mobile devices, Call of Duty Mobile is a high-visual-fidelity counterpart to its console versions. Activision went to great lengths in order to ensure a robust multiplayer experience is captured for the players while keeping all the series’ DNA intact, including the plethora of customizable weapons, game modes, and iconic maps.
Whether it’s the squad-based gameplay in Team Deathmatch mode or the free-for-all mayhem of the Battle Royale mode, every encounter feels engaging, thanks to responsive controls and stable performance. For its technical prowess on handheld devices, the game also won 2019’s Game of the Year award for Best Mobile Game.
2 EA Sports FC Mobile
EA Sports FC Mobile
- October 10, 2016
- Electronic Arts
EA has been consistent in their console releases for the mainline EA Sports FC (formerly “FIFA”) series. Although it is hard to replicate the intricacies of its magical gameplay on mobile devices, the lite version is still a very engaging experience that incorporates original elements of the FIFA Ultimate Team and other PvP modes. Furthermore, the new Locker Room mode allows players to collect clothing articles and customize their favorite football icons to their heart’s content.
Moreover, to provide a more immersive and authentic experience, the gameplay in EA Sports FC Mobile has a slower pace to accommodate a more skill-based approach. Due to the limitations of the control scheme on phones, users are given enough time and freedom to react to the on-pitch movement of the players and make decisions accordingly for a satisfying experience. After all, nothing beats a quick game of football while commuting to work or school.
1 Genshin Impact
- September 28, 2020
Ever since its inception in 2020, Genshin Impact has taken the world by storm.

The game has had both a strong online influence due to social media engagement, fanart, and memes, as well as a strong fan-driven cultural impact thanks to cosplay, competitions, and exhibitions around the world.
Genshin Impact Reveals New Character Skins and Confirms Version 4.4 Banners

The game makes use of a gacha system for character and item acquisition but mixes it well with RPG elements, puzzles, team building, and world events. Moreover, Genshin Impact also makes a quality of life change by saving progression across platforms, so players are afforded the flexibility to switch from mobile devices to consoles or PCs and vice versa. Lastly, Genshin Impact has also been awarded the Game Award for Best Mobile Game in 2021, and it consistently got nominated in the years after as well, showcasing the strong community and developer support for the game.
