RPG or role-playing game is a game genre where we will play as a character or more and following the story of that character until the end. It could be a single main character, or several characters that will have their story intertwined in the grand plot. Usually, the gameplay of RPG will spent most of your time due to the grinding and leveling. To do that, we need to fight monsters along the way.
Players need to make the right decisions in battle and building the best skill tree possible to make our progress easier. And to do those all, we need a lot of time and a good internet connection especially for online games. But nowadays we can easily play both online and offline games by only using smartphone. So let me present you these 5 recommended mobile RPG of 2019 you should try.
1. SoulCraft (Android, PC)
SoulCraft is an action RPG developed by MobileBits GmbH and known for its stunning graphics among the Android RPG. We will control an angel who has to protect the world from dangers by slaying monsters and bosses along the way. In the progress, we will have to deal with obstacles while trying to adapt with the controls. So, we have no choice but to train in using the controls until we get used to it.
In this game, we can also choose to play as the demons. That means, we must fight the humans in the world until no one left. Quite a rude way to play a game, but that is what makes this game unique. Aside from only playing as an angel as a hero and a guardian, we can choose to be the bad guy. And above all, no matter which side you choose you will be pampered with the beautiful visuals.
2. Eternium (Android, iOS)
Eternium: Mage and Minions is another free-to-play RPG which was created by Making Fun, Inc and available for mobile devices especially Android. As soon as we start playing, we will choose a character to begin with. Every character has different abilities so it is hard to say which is best among the others. Along the adventure, we will get stronger by gaining points and experiences for defeating enemies.
Basically, we will play as a character who tries to defeat the main villain, Ragadam. Along the way we will fight with Ragadam’s army consists of monsters, aliens, and even dragons. Sounds very common, but this game has something else: the very user-friendly gameplay (we can cast spells just by making patterns on the screen) along with beautiful graphics that we can consider it as epic.
3. Kritika: The White Knights (Android, iOS)
Kritika: The White Knights is an action RPG published by GAMEVIL for smartphone users who use Android or iOS. Just by looking at the first glance, you can say that this game is a high quality hack-and-slash game. It is often included as one of the most popular smartphone games and one of the best MMORPG that offers you high quality graphics throughout the whole story.
4. Granblue Fantasy (Android, iOS)
Granblue Fantasy is a game published by Cygames for mobile devices and web browsers. This game reunited the two persons behind the famous Final Fantasy series and Lost Odyssey: Nobuo Uematsu as composer and Hideo Minaba as art director. With those great people behind the scene, this game promises you beautiful graphics and gameplay, as well as a great plot.
The game progress is divided into two parts: Story Quest and Free Quest. Basically you will do quests and then get the reward afterward, and there are also quests which will give you certain item upon finishing. Not just that, this game has a unique feature called Boss Raid which will make the game more exciting to be played. This turn-based RPG will suits players who loves RPG with modern touch.
5. Final Fantasy Brave Exvius (Android, iOS)
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a free-to-play RPG developed by Alim and published by Square Enix for Android and iOS based smartphone. It is a spin-off of the Final Fantasy series and marks as the first collaborative effort between Square Enix and Alim. The game which was released initially in 2015 is often included as one of the best RPG with beautiful graphics.
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is designed as a turn-based RPG, combining elements from Final Fantasy series with those of previous Alim’s games, Brave Frontier. Similar to Brave Frontier, the battle system consists of a simplified interface where players can command their characters to attack by touching the character’s corresponding attack button, special attacks and items.
Apparently, a good RPG isn’t always played online even after the online RPG have developed greatly. We can choose which one to play depending on the availability of internet connection. And if I have to choose, I’m gonna stick with Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and Granblue Fantasy since I’m a JRPG lover. Between those two, I think I will choose Granblue Fantasy over the other for its beautiful 2D graphics.
