There are many types of games. One type is called RPG, which stands for Role Playing Games. People spend hours playing this game and reading stories about it. On Android, RPGs were one of the first types of games to really catch on. There are many different RPGs you can choose from. Here are some of the best ones: jRPGs and “standard” action RPGs. Below, we link to different subgenres for RPGs.
We want to give an honorable mention to Beamdog (Google Play). They make good old-school RPGs like Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and others.
Another Eden is one of the newer RPGs on the list. It’s written by the same guy that did Chrono Trigger and the composer is the same as well. Players traverse time to save their sister (and many other people) from a bunch of bad guys. The game world is beautifully designed and the combat mechanics are relatively simple. Plus, there are many references to Chrono Trigger. The game is freemium, but it does not have many menus or events like most mobile RPGs do. Players get on the campaign mode and stay there when they start playing the game. We feel that the combat in this game is not as good as other RPGs. But we think that this is one of the best games from 2019.
Doom & Destiny Advanced
Doom and Destiny Advanced is the sequel to the game Doom and Destiny. Its predecessor was on our list for the best RPGs for a couple of years. The game has the same characters and the same story as the original but is different. There are 15 hours of content, free content will be added, there are dungeons and secrets to find, and there are many monsters. The game can be played with others online. It is perfect for people who like retro games.
Eternium is a free game and not like other games. It has features that make it unique such as the ability to play offline, which is uncommon today. Additionally, the game has a long story. It is easy to control. You can change the character in many ways. There are not too many free parts of the game in it. This toy will last a long time. It does everything that it is supposed to do and we think that is why it will last.
Exiled Kingdoms is a single-player game. It is one of the few games in this genre that does not have any in-app purchases. Your character has to save the world from horrors that were left behind after an old catastrophe. The graphics are not the best part of the game. However, they do get a point across. The menu system is easy to understand. It looks and plays a lot like older games like Diablo II or Baldur’s Gate. Like most RPGs, you’ll need to upgrade your character, finish the story, and explore around the world of the game to find all of the secrets. The free version lets you play for a while. When you get the full version, you can play with two types of characters.
Evoland 1 and 2
Evoland and Evoland 2 are two different games. They have many types of game mechanics. They include RPG, platformer, hack-and-slash, puzzle, and even some fun stuff like 3D fighter and trading card mechanic. Players use the game world to help them play the game. The game is an RPG. You can play for 20 hours or more, offline, with a controller, or on the computer. The controls are not perfect, but users did report some bugs. Besides this, these games are quite good. Neither of them has in-app purchases. Both games are also available on Google Play for free.
Fire Emblem Heroes and Dragalia Lost
Fire Emblem Heroes and Dragalia Lost are two video games from Nintendo. Fire Emblem Heroes is a good strategy RPG. Players move characters around a checkerboard-style map, and they attack bad guys. There is also a story, gacha elements, and some social elements as well. Dragalia Lost is an action RPG with 60 voiced characters, a decent storyline and soundtrack, and a colorful game world. Dragalia Lost had a rough release, but it seems to have ironed all of those out. Nintendo makes some rock-solid mobile games and these two RPGs definitely deserve to be here.
Genshin Impact is an RPG that plays a lot like Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The player gets access to a large open world and can explore it all. There is even a glider for when you need to fly from one place to another, which saves time when you don’t want to walk or climb everywhere. The game has some minor gacha elements, but it doesn’t cause a lot of problems. The gameplay, story, graphics, music, and mechanics are all rock solid with phenomenal execution. There is the occasional bug, but otherwise, it’s easily among the best RPGs on mobile.
Before Square Enix began porting its classic games to Android, there was only one really good studio that made RPGs. They were called Kemco and they have lots of games in their catalog. Some of their more popular options include Symphony or Origin, Machine Knight, Covenant of Solitude, the Alphadia Saga, and many more. Most of the games cost under $5. There are even a few that are free. None of them are bad, but you may or may not like them based on your preferences. You can click the button below to view their entire collection. It’s quite large so prepare for some scrolling and some surfing. There are literally dozens of options available and most of them are pretty good.
Monster Hunter Stories
Monster Hunter Stories is an RPG from 2018. It can be played on a computer or on a mobile device. The game has turn-based mechanics and decent graphics, and it tells a story for you to play through. You can capture and fight monsters as well! In addition, the game has one of the best demos we’ve ever seen. You basically play the prologue in the demo and then port the save to the main game in the premium version. The premium version is quite pricey at $19.99. However, it is a single purchase with no in-app purchases or ads.
Old School RuneScape
Old School RuneScape is a good game. It is more mature than most games. There are many quests, stories, and dungeons you can do. You can also have your own character that you create. And there are many things to learn about the game, so it will be fun to play! Unlike most, this game uses a subscription method rather than a free-to-play scheme so you can’t buy your way to victory. However, the premium version does include extra quests, extra storage space, and more content overall. The text can be hard to read at times and the graphics won’t win any awards. However, the game is solid and plays well. There is another RuneScape Mobile (Google Play link) game available now, but it’s still in its early days.
Postknight is a game that you can play. You deliver packages to places in the game world. The characters might be different and the stories are too. However, the developers make the game mobile-friendly by making each encounter bite-size so you can play in chunks as well as longer play sessions. Each delivery garners experience points and you can even do some stuff like mixing your own potions. It’s not the deepest RPG on the list, but we had a good time playing it.
Sorcery is a series of games that are text-based. They can be compared to playing an RPG game because they have graphics too. The world is open, so you can go where you want. You can also go back in time if you want to.” You’ll also be making plenty of decisions that determine how the game turns out. There is a ton of stuff to do and it’s definitely one of the more unique experiences on mobile. There are four games in total. Each one costs about $4.99 and has no in-app purchases. These games are also free with Google Play Pass.
Square Enix titles
Square Enix has been working hard to release RPGs on Android. Some of them are really great games. Some of the games you can find are Final Fantasy I-VII (and IX), Dragon Quest I-VI (and VIII), Secret of Mana, Adventures of Mana, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, Chrono Trigger, and others. They also have mobile RPG games like Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, NieR Re[in]carnation, and Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia. You can even pick up strategy RPGs like Heavenstrike Rivals and Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lion. Square Enix’s collection of RPGs is rather extensive and gets larger every year. The button below takes you to the developer page so you can browse them at your leisure. Square Enix did remove Final Fantasy V and VI in order to release remakes of them later in 2021. We’ll update the article after they launch with more details.
Summoners War is an RPG game. You can play with characters that are stronger than you at first, but then you get strong ones. I have 1,000 characters! There are also events that come and go to prevent things from being boring at the end of the game. The gameplay is smooth too! The game has its ups and downs, mostly due to it being so old. However, the game is on an upswing at the time of this writing and it’s easily one of the best when it’s on an upswing.
WitchSpring is a fun app on a phone. The games are all about being a good RPG. Every game is different, but they are all really cool RPGs with typical RPG things in them. I like the storytelling and the graphics and how easy it is to use this app. The first three games happen at the same time in the game’s universe with the first two titles telling the same story from two different perspectives. Thus, you don’t have to play this series in order for the most part. We do recommend playing the first before the second but you can play the third and fourth titles independently at any point.
