The expansion of the video game industry towards mobile platforms (iOS and Android) is a reality and inevitable like Thanos from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Mobile devices allow you play anywhere almost any type of game and sometimes they can hook you much more than many consoles and PCs.
Here I will tell you which are the best games for your Android device. No matter what your tastes are, you will surely find something to suit you.
It’s no secret that Marvel Snap is one of VidaExtra’s favorite video games. In addition, he won the award for Best Mobile Game during The Game Awards 2022.
It’s about a card game (Marvel heroes and villains) that takes place on a board of three locations. The cards are adding points and can have effects and the three zones have a random effect. The player who scores the most points in two locations wins the game.
In-game monetization and ads aren’t too annoying. It is possible to play and progress a lot without having to invest money. You get a lot of cards constantly. Obviously, investing money helps you to be at the top, but it is not everything.
The augmented reality game from Niantic, Inc. needs no introduction at this point. Pokémon Go caused a massive departure of young people (and not so young people) and that institutions such as the DGT (General Directorate of Traffic) had to issue notices about playing this game in certain places and circumstances.
If you move a lot and spend time on the street, then Pokémon Go it’s your video game. Catch Pokémon while walking down the lane, battle other Trainers and NPCs, spin PokéStops, and attack/defend Faction Gyms.
After succeeding with its PC version, Vampire Survivors set out to conquer the mobile platform… And it has! We are facing one of the most relevant mobile games of 2022 together with Marvel Snap.
The control of the mobile version is a bit rough, although it is compensated by offering the opportunity to play with the screen both horizontally and vertically. If it’s too inconvenient for you, you can connect a PS4 controller (for example) via Bluetooth. It does not have aggressive advertising, so you will be able to play without interruptions.
Netease Games Global Presents Lost Lighta first and/or third person shooter whose gameplay is similar to Escape From Tarkov: you must enter a combat zone, fight other players and NPCs, and collect equipment in the form of weapons, ammunition, and more to upgrade your character and your base.
The weapon customization and the inventory management is highly detailed and varied, following in the wake of its Escape From Tarkov inspiration. Lost Light is also available on PC (Steam).
The Diablo franchise tried to take the mobile platform by storm with Diablo Immortal, but the controversy over microtransactions made it short-lived.
Live the Diablo experience: choose a class and immerse yourself in a story full of action and demons. The quality of controls and the visual section they are superior. A pity that Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. was greedy when it came to developing the monetization system.
Genshin Impact and Tower of Fantasy
Genshin Impact and Tower of Fantasy are two very similar video games, although each one differs from the other in different sections. Both are free-to-play open-world action RPGs, with gacha monetization mechanics for additional items like special characters and weapons.
There are two big differences between the two: fighting system from Genshin Impact is based on making combos with different characters and Tower of Fantasy on making combos with different weapons. On the other hand, the setting de Genshin is closer to medieval fantasy and Tower to cyberpunk fantasy. Very colorful and anime style in both cases.
If you are looking for a video game that can give you many hours of gameplay, then Genshin Impact and Tower of Fantasy should be your choice. Of course, I warn you that your battery could plummet.
The Supercell video game needs no introduction either. This is a real-time PVP tower defense game. Each player has a limited number of troops and energy, which he has to use to attack and defend three towers on each side of the board. The first player to remove the central rook (king) or to remove more rooks wins the game.
League of Legends: Wild Rift
If you like League of Legends and you don’t want to stop playing while you’re away from home, then League of Legends: Wild Rift is the answer to your wishes. Riot Games, Inc. offers you a “light version” of the original game with fewer characters, smaller maps, and somewhat simpler mechanics to keep games shorter.
Would you like to play a Pokémon League of Legends? The Pokemon Company presents Pokémon UNITE, a 5v5 MOBA with great graphics that are very beautiful and colorful, a frantic pace, and a monetization system that doesn’t stop you from reaching the top… even if it costs its own.
The gameplay is very similar to LoL: each character has their own abilities, which counteract and are weak to others.
Magic: The Gathering Arena
Magic: The Gathering Arena is an Android version of the classic Magic card game. This is a perfect version for those who don’t have anyone to play with, want to play a game anywhere and/or want to get started in this world. The in-game tutorials are perfect for learning. The game is free and has a monetization system.
PUBG New State
PUBG New State is an improved and much more ambitious version of PUBG Mobile. It has improved graphics, more weapons and content in general. It was one of the outstanding mobile games of 2022, although it fell halfway with respect to Marvel Snap Y Vampire Survivors.
Call of Duty: Mobile
It does not have much mystery: Call of Duty in mobile version. It is a “light version” of Call of Duty. It has adapted controls and controller compatibility, cool graphics, different game modes, and an arsenal varied enough to hit shots anywhere.
