Mobile games have come a long way, and they're now more popular than ever. Casual gamers favour mobile games, as you can play them anytime and anywhere. You don't need a fancy setup or expensive gear to start slaying monsters in dungeons or survive a battleground. Plus, games on Android and iOS are free to play.
The last few months of 2022 have been quite happening for the mobile space. Several big titles have made it to Google Play and App Store. Some video games are still in the early access phase, but will soon go live. Meanwhile, some older titles like Clash of Clans and Clash Royale have gotten some major overhauls.
With that in mind, let's have a look at some of the best games you can try on mobile.
Top 5 Mobile Games to Play in July 2022
Here's the list!
1) Apex Legends Mobile
Apex Legends was an instant hit among gamers when the battle royale came out. EA recently launched the game for Mobiles in 2022, with some polished and integrated controls.
Apex Legends Mobile comes with several game modes and some selected agents from the actual game. Developers will be adding the rest of the agents over upcoming updates. The battle royale mode stays the same, featuring 60 players across 20 squads. The game features ranked as well as unranked modes with Battle Royale and Deathmatch.
The best part is that the game retains the same gameplay features as that on the PC version.
The graphics are toned down for mobile compatibility. However, the game received a lot of appreciation, with as many as 10 million downloads in the first month.
2) Diablo Immortal
Diablo Immortal was globally launched on July 7th, 2022. Fans have been waiting long for the release. Diablo Immortal was being developed with the idea of incorporating touch controls for mobile players.
Coming from the MMORPG genre, the game features an isometric graphics style. However, one of its best features is that players can create and play with different characters from the same account. The game also features a cross-save function. The function allows players to save their progress in their Blizzard accounts and play on multiple devices.
However, the game did not receive a great response because of its micro-transaction feature. According to critiques, it is difficult to progress in the later stages, without character upgrades requiring real-world money. Critics also tagged it as a pay-to-win game.
According to some sources, the game needs USD 100,000 to fully upgrade a character, equivalent to 10 years of gameplay.
3) Clash of Clans
The fantasy-themed mobile video game came out in 2012 from the house of Finnish developers Supercell. Almost all iOS and Android players readily appreciated the game.
Clash of Clans needs players to take the role of a village chief. They are to set up the village to attack other villages and defend against them. The same involves troops, artillery, spells, and more forming its basic gameplay. Over time, it is up to the players how they want to manage their resources and upgrade them against other villages.
The game has come up with several new updates throughout these years, the latest being the Clan Capital update. Now, players of a clan can build a village together and battle against others.
4) Clash Royale
Another fantasy-themed video game from the same developers, Supercell, was released in 2016. Players can find several favourite characters from Clash of Clans in Clash Royale.
Clash Royale features collectible card games, tower defense, and a multiplayer battle arena in a real-time strategic format. Players go against each other, strategize with their respective decks, and battle.
The developers keep on adding new aspects. In its latest summer update, the game has added several new features that include-
- Battle banners
- Banner boxes
- Banner token currency to open the banner boxes
- A new user interface
- Badges and banners in player profiles
- New badges
- Other technical updates
