Minecraft Pocket Edition 

Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time. Players can explore, mine, hunt, and build almost anything they can think of. Players can choose between survival mode and sandbox mode, depending on what they want to do. 

Survival mode pits players against the world; you have to gather food, defend yourself against enemies and gather resources to build a home and gear. Sandbox mode gives you access to everything in the game, and you can create whatever you want; even the world of The Lord of the Rings has even been made in Minecraft

Pokemon Unite 

Pokemon Unite is a new twist on the classic Pokemon franchise. Taking inspiration from games such as League of Legends and Dota, Unite pits two teams against each other in lane and control-style battles. 

There are 21 different Pokemon to choose from, with the point of the game being to defeat wild Pokemon to gain points and control specific points on the map. It is a brilliant new version of a game that includes Pokemon everyone knows and loves. 

Among Us 

The hit survival and manipulation game can now be played on mobile. Simply put, Among Us is a game where a crew finds themselves on a ship, with some needing to complete tasks and others being the killers, but nobody knows who is who. 

You can speak to each other at certain times, and a vote is taken to eliminate someone. If the crew votes out the killers, they win; if the killers kill a certain number of crewmates, they win. Manipulation, lying, and deceit are all part of the game. 

Stardew Valley 

Stardew Valley is a management and building game where players inherit their grandfather’s dilapidated farm. Your job is to grow and sell crops, cattle, mine resources, and get the farm back to the heights it was once at. 

There are tasks to complete and more to do all the time, and the game also doesn’t end once the farm is back up and running—it doesn’t end at all. You can get married, have children, and continue working and living life on the farm you spent so much time improving.

The classic card game has come to mobile. Hearthstone pits two players against each other in a battle of wits and skill, using decks that you create. These decks can be filled with magic, ability, monsters, and warriors. 

The game is suited for people of almost any skill level and is easier to learn and pick up, unlike other similar games such as Magic the Gathering and Pokemon. It’s also incredibly addictive, and the fact that you can win and open new cards all the time means the game will never get stale. 

Call of Duty Mobile 

Call of Duty has been a giant in the first-person shooter genre for years now. The mobile version is almost no different from that of the games on console and PC, and there are slight variances, but surprisingly nothing major. 

You have access to the same characters, weapons, and even maps, making the mobile version of the game the perfect console or PC replacement while you are on the go. 

League of Legends: Wild Rift 

Wild Rift is the mobile version of the insanely popular League of Legends. Like the PC game, players control a character with unique abilities and powers as you battle against another team or AI to control specific points on the map to destroy their Nexus. 

Wild Rift also features ARAM mode, where there are still two teams of five players, but the map is much smaller, there is no jungle area or top or bottom route, and there are no baron or dragon quests. 

PUBG Mobile 

The game that put Battle Royales on the map, PUBG mobile, has everything you love about the PC game. Players drop into a vast map; you need to loot up and find armor, weapons, and ammunition. 

There is a zone that closes every few minutes that makes the playing area smaller, and the winner of the game is the last man standing at the end of it. It is intense, exciting, and while it requires a level of skill, you always need luck on your side. 

Clash Quest 

From the creators of Clash of Clans, Boom Beach and Clash Royale, Clash Quest takes all your favorite characters, soldiers, and spells from the Clash games and puts them into this turn-based adventure and battle game. 

You have to travel across different islands, fighting and defeating foreign enemies and ensuring you have the right soldiers and magic available. Clash Quest adds another layer of tactics to this much-loved franchise.

Pokemon Go 

Pokemon Go is still one of the most popular mobile games out there. The game allows you to talk outside and encounter wild Pokemon that you can then battle and catch. The real action starts with gym battles. 

Across the real world, specific points are labeled as gyms, where you have to battle and defeat trainers Pokemon to take control of the gym. The game has been praised for having so many fan-favorite Pokemon and the fact that different areas around you have new and other Pokemon to find and catch. 

Final thoughts

These are only a few, but easily some of the best mobile games you can play. Not only are they highly addictive, but they are constantly changing and improving, meaning you will never be bored or left asking for more.
