Having the ability to enjoy the best role-playing games on the go (without being tied to a computer desk) is an experience unlike any other. Are you waiting for the bus to appear and don’t have anything better to do with your time? Perhaps you’re waiting for the meal to get cooked? Just whip up your trusty smartphone and bring the world of gaming with you to brighten your day at any time you want to.
But which role-playing titles deserve your attention more than any other? We’ve composed a list that will help steer you in the right direction.
Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic
Fans of the Star Wars series will absolutely love this one. Stepping into the time when the Old Republic was still alive and well, will you direct your force powers towards helping the innocent or succumb to the lure of the dark side of the force? This game allows you to develop your character just the way you want to, with multiple choices along the way (and yes, they affect the story). This game is one of the best RPG titles around, and now it’s finally available on mobile devices.
Baldur’s Gate 2
The PC users recognize this as one of the best RPG games ever made. Now, there’s a port for Android that works absolutely flawlessly. You start your adventure inside a prison. With the help of your trusted companions, you will quickly find a way out to enter a world of adventure dictated by the good old Dungeons & Dragons rules.
Final Fantasy 15
Coming this fall, Final Fantasy 15 is being remade for smartphones. The good news is that this is not just a plain old port; rather, it’s a whole new game with original content that’s still based on the events in the original storyline. The whole game will be split into 10 titles, with the first one being available for free.
Dragon Quest 5
Even though some might argue that the gameplay is a bit traditional, no-one can say that the story is boring in any manner. In quite a unique way, the players are placed into the main character’s shoes, following him from childhood to adult years. Having to go through a mixture of hardships and triumphs, the main character grows and develops along the way. Plus, there is a monster-catching mechanic to spice things up.
Final Fantasy Tactics
This mobile RPG game is truly something unique. Combining the elements of strategy games and RPGs, the touch screen controls make for a perfect fit and provide a great overall experience. The job system is deep, and the combat system offers much to those willing and ready to study it. Combine all of this with an awe-inspiring storyline, and you’re onto a winner.
There are many mobile RPGs out there, and it’s up to you to pick whichever you like best. And if you haven’t considered playing an RPG game on a mobile phone before, try it out! You might be amazed.
