The most devoted gamers of any gaming genre are fans of role-playing games. People spend dozens (and occasionally hundreds or even thousands) of hours creating characters, playing tales, and having fun in video games like Final Fantasy or World of Warcraft. There are many RPGs to pick from, and they were one of the first genres on Android to take off. The top RPGs for Android are listed below.
Please be aware that we’ll be discussing “regular” action RPGs and jRPGs. Below, we provide links to a number of RPG subgenres.
Additionally, we’d like to recognize Beamdog (Google Play), a publisher of outstanding classic RPGs like Icewind Dale and Baldur’s Gate. KOTOR II and Star Wars KOTOR (Google Play) are likewise worthy of recognition (Google Play). Although both games have minor bugs, they are generally rather decent.
The Top Android Rp Gs
Advance Doom & Destiny
The follow-up, prequel, and reboot to the first Doom and Destiny are called Doom and Destiny Advanced. Its predecessor spent a few years on our list of the top RPGs. According to the creators, the game uses many of the same characters and plot points as the original but has a whole different plot (and even a separate dimension).
It features 15 hours of gameplay with the addition of free material, a tonne of dungeons and secrets to explore, a tonne of creatures, and even an online cooperative option. It has a tonne of content and is ideal for aficionados of old-school JRPGs.
One of the best action role-playing games available on mobile is Eternium, a free-to-play title. It includes various uncommon characteristics, like the capacity for offline play. These days, very few action RPGs have this functionality.
Additionally, it boasts simple controls, a tonne of character customization possibilities, a decently substantial storyline, and a light approach to the game’s free-to-play elements. It checks practically all the right boxes, which, in our opinion, considerably adds to its durability. One of the better ones is this.
Single-player action role-playing game Exiled Kingdoms. One of the few games in this genre that isn’t a freemium title. It has a plot in which you have to defend the world against horrors that are the remains of a previous disaster. The game’s best feature isn’t its graphics. The menu system is simple enough to understand, and they succeed in conveying their message. It resembles previous games like Diablo II or Baldur’s Gate in both appearance and gameplay.
To unlock all of the mysteries in this role-playing game, you’ll need to level up your character, finish the plot, and explore the surrounding area. You get a sizable trial with two character kinds to play in the free edition. Everything is unlocked in the full version.
1 and 2 Evoland
Both Evoland and Evoland 2 are fantastic video games. They have several different mechanisms. RPG, platformer, hack-and-slash, puzzle, and even some entertaining elements like 3D fighter and trading card mechanisms are all included. The gaming world that players navigate through is constantly changing, just as the game mechanics.
RPGs are its primary genre, though. The games include a 20-hour playtime estimate, offline functionality, hardware controller compatibility, and more. Users have noted some problems and some rough edges in the controls for the mini-games. These games are extremely enjoyable other than that. They don’t both have in-app purchases, either. Both games are also free to download via Google Play Pass.
Heroes of Fire Emblem and Dragalia Lost
Nintendo produces two role-playing games, Fire Emblem Heroes and Dragalia Lost. A surprisingly good (and fluid) strategic RPG is Fire Emblem Heroes. On a map in the shape of a checkerboard, players control characters to attack enemies. A tale, gacha components, and some social components are all present.
An action role-playing game called Dragalia Lost features 60 voiced characters, a respectable plot, catchy music, and a vibrant gaming setting. Dragalia Lost had a rocky launch, but everything seems to have been worked out now. These two RPGs from Nintendo, which produce some incredibly good mobile games, have earned their place on this list.
Impact of Genshin
The newest RPG on the list is Genshin Impact. Its gameplay resembles that of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Players have access to a vast open area, and you may literally climb and explore the entire thing. Even long distances can be traveled in a glider rather than by climbing and walking everywhere.
Although there are a few little gacha components in the game, they don’t really pose any issues. The implementation of the gameplay, plot, aesthetics, soundtrack, and mechanics is superb. It occasionally has a bug, but aside from that, it’s without a doubt one of the best mobile RPGs out there.
One of those games that, at first, you don’t take seriously is Guardian Tales because of the charming art. It’s actually one of the more interesting and engaging smartphone RPGs in recent memory.
You can build your own floating castle in addition to the typical fun of RPG progression, action RPG combat, boss fights, dungeons, and PvP modes. Many mobile games combine several principles in order to separate out from the competition, but Guardian Tales actually does a good job of blending its different mechanics, which makes it fun to play. Although it is free to play, the microtransactions are not overly intrusive.
Monster Hunting Games
One of the top role-playing games of 2018 was Monster Hunter Stories. The game is a port of a 2016–2017 Nintendo 3DS title. It has turn-based gameplay, respectable graphics, and a playable storyline. You still hunt, catch, and engage in combat with creatures, of course.
Despite being a port, it actually functions quite well for a mobile port. Additionally, the game’s demo is among the best we’ve ever seen. In essence, you play the prologue in the demo before transferring your save to the main game in the paid version. At $19.99, the premium version is extremely expensive. There are no in-app purchases or advertisements, however, it is a single purchase.
