2. Feign

The next entry on our list today is Feign. This title takes the cute and charming aesthetics and aspects of other titles on this list and improves upon them in many ways. The game's core premise is also interesting for players to work their way through as well. In Feign, players are able to play with up to a maximum of twelve players. Here, they will have to decipher which among them has lost their minds. This gives the game a rather social aspect, which is wonderful for mobile titles such as these. Additionally, the game's RPG mechanics do a great job of reinforcing the game's core premise as well. 

Players who are cast in the role of the killer also have their own special gameplay loop as well. These players are in charge of eliminating players who hold too much information. In doing so, players will have to skulk about and be sneaky if they hope not to get caught. In the game, there is also a voting system for players to partake in. This is done both to encourage communication between players as well as give the game an inherent sense of structure. To close, Feign is one of the best RPGs on iOS & Android

1. AFK Journey

Now comes the time for our final entry today. Here, we have AFK Journey. As the name implies, AFK Journey can be played idly. This not only allows the player to continue through the game at their own pace but also rewards them for keeping up with the game in their own way. The game is basked in a fantasy aesthetic, one that is made possible by the game's core premise of being set within the bounds of a storybook. The world of Esperia is one that quickly opens itself up to the player, allowing them to accomplish tasks at their own pace. 

The game features tactical gameplay that both strategy and auto-battler fans can enjoy. This ensures that no matter how you enjoy playing the game, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Aiding in this sense of open-ended design is the game's approach to its battlefields. These battlefields greatly give the player an advantage or disadvantage, depending on the context. This is wonderful, as it makes the game feel more immersive and alive. In conclusion, AFK Journey is one of the best RPGs available on iOS & Android
