Mobile gaming for the past few years has shifted from dedicated gaming handhelds to smartphones and tablets. Practically everyone has one and their respected online application stores showcase thousands of video games from indie studios to big name triple AAA developers. We’ve even seen companies like Nintendo merge into delivering video games for both Google Android and Apple iOS.

Portal Knights

Google Play

Price: $4.99

Portal Knights is a cooperative 3D sandbox action RPG from 505 Games Srl. The title puts players onto grand quests as to where they will explore the open world environments and defeat a variety of enemies along with boss battles. Luckily, the game does offer multiplayer with up to four friends who can aid you in your journey. Additionally, the game does offer a bit of a crafting element where players can create their own island full of structures and recruit NPCs they find in the game to live and aid your home.

Titan Quest

Google Play

Price: $7.99

Titan Quest comes as one of the more pricey titles on the list as it will run players about $7.99. The video game is an action RPG that originally released on the PC platform back in 2006. Overall, the title is set in a mythological narrative where titans have broken free from their captivity and started their destruction of Earth.

As a result, players will create a new champion for the planet. You’ll venture into Greece, Egypt, and Babylon among other locations to track down the otherworldly foes and save humanity. If you’re familiar with the God of War franchise, the title does mimic a bit of the overall hack-and-slash style while fighting off other Greek mythological creatures. Outside of the narrative and gameplay, Titan Quest does offer a wide assortment of items to discover and skills that you can upgrade on your character.

Survivalcraft

Google Play

Price: $3.99

Survivalcraft, as I’m sure you can tell from the name alone, is a clone to the popular video game Minecraft. Within this title, players are left stranded on a blocky world where they must collect resources, craft tools, and most of all survive. What makes Survivalcraft a more approachable title compared to the widely known Minecraft video game is that the developers are pretty much on top of things with new updates and features, not to say Minecraft falls far behind, but if you need a good alternative that still stays close with blocky visuals then this would be our recommendation.
