Mobile gaming is a big part of the video game industry and anyone who isn’t willing to admit that obviously hasn’t spent a lot of time playing these games on their phone, or looking at the trends. The fact is that there are so many cool games to play on your smartphone so that you can play them on the go, rather than just when you are at home.
This is awesome for those people who love gaming and means that if you’ve got some free time in the day, you aren’t going to have to wait until you get home to play the games that you love. In this article, we are going to be looking at some of the best games available on mobile from 2019 that you should definitely play. If you want to know what these are, keep reading down below.
The Banner Saga
The Banner Saga is available on both Android and iPhone, and you will find that it is just as good on your smartphone as it is on PC. The game is an RPG and requires you to think tactically in order to accomplish your goals. Featuring a whole range of species such as giants, centaurs, humans, and so on, they each have their own attacks, special skills, and tactical moves that you can figure out as you play along. You’ve got to have your wits about you, though, because you won’t be getting far unless you take the time to really think. This game is tough, and if you aren’t willing to put in the brainpower, you aren’t going to find it very rewarding.
You can look forward to making some tough decisions as you have to take your warriors and your caravan across the world to survive the apocalypse. The visuals and voiced characters are great, but make sure that you take extra care because you’ve got to focus on your journey, rather than your final destination.
Fire Emblem Heroes
Let’s get the issue with this game out of the way first. The game uses currency that you use to summon characters throughout gameplay. Now, the problem with this is that the currency comes at an extremely high cost. You can expect to pay between around $1.50-$3 to summon a character on this game. But, they do also sell you value packs, which can be super expensive, with even the ‘best value’ back coming in at around $75. But, if you can manage not to spend lots of money on this, then it’s a great game.
However, you can place restrictions on how much you can spend through your carrier if you are worried about this. For example, if you are on something like smarty mobile, get in touch with them and see if there is anything they can do to help restrict the amount you spend, such as putting a cap on your plan.
It’s an awesome translation from Nintendo to RPG for mobiles, and it is a very complex game. It can keep you entertained and engaged with the story for weeks, months, maybe even longer. There are plenty of characters for you to play with, campaigns, special events, and even multiplayer modes if you want to play with your family or friends. All in all, if you know that you’re not the type to spend a lot of money on games, then you aren’t going to have an issue here. It’s a fun game that will provide you a lot of fun.
If you enjoy sports-centered games, then you are going to like Alto’s Odyssey. This is the sequel to Alto’s Adventure that was really popular. In this game, you are a snowboarder, and there are multiple things for you to discover while you are speeding for as long as possible. The goal of the game is to ride for as long as you can, avoiding rocks and other obstacles, doing stunts like backflips in order to get those high scores, and completing tasks along the way. The reason that this game is better than the original is that this one has a new move. Wall rides is a new trick that also allows you to reach those higher lines that you were never able to get to on the original. It’s available for you to play on iOS and Android, and it’s already proving to be a big hit.
Fortnite Battle Royale
Plenty of consoles have seen the likes of Fortnite in recent years. It quickly became popular after its release, even going as far as to be called a cultural phenomenon. It’s a shooting game that is available on a multitude of consoles, including the Switch, the XBOX, and the mobile.
The main goal of this game is to survive. You parachute into the field, run around getting the supplies that you are going to need to survive, build defenses to keep you safe and make it to the end without getting shot. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it’s certainly fun to play, and a lot of the time, you do find that the games with the simplest ideas are the best. It’s free to play, and everyone hopped aboard this bandwagon when it first released, and even now, it isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

If you’ve ever read the book Around The World In Eighty Days, then you’ll already have a good idea of what this game is about. You play as Phileas Fogg’s servant, looking after your master on a journey from London. However, don’t get too attached to your ideas in the book, though, because that’s not exactly how it goes in this game. For example, the game starts with you on an underwater train journey, and after you will ride plenty of different creations, trying to find your way around the globe and reach your ultimate destination. But, it’s more complicated than it first sounds.
You’re going to have to make big choices that are going to impact the way that the game plays out. For example, you’ve got limited money and limited space, so how do you decide whether you need that coat or if another item is more important? Do you tend to your master’s needs, or talk to a member of the train crew to get the information you have been looking for? The amount of choice available in this game is insane, and you could play this game over and over, never having the same experience.
Life is Strange
This game is an adventure. The game is a story about friendship and trying to figure out where in this world you belong. It is a critically acclaimed series that we’re sure you’ve seen on other consoles.
Sure, the touchscreen controls aren’t the best, but once you start playing, you aren’t going to be able to stop. Remember that if the controls do become too much of an issue, you can play it on another console, but there’s really no need if you can get used to some of the awkwardness in the beginning.
Pokemon has always been a big deal in the gaming industry, so when it was announced that they were going to be releasing GO!, it was a big thing. The game launched back in 2016, with some pretty obvious things missing that should have been there. For example, there was no trading and a few of the other things that those who love the franchise missed. However, by 2019, these things had been sorted. While the game isn’t perfect, it is certainly a fun adventure to play. Basically, you end up walking around outside, catching those pesky little creatures that we all love and voila! This is a unique game of the franchise as it is only available on mobile, but it was, and still is, super popular. There are daily research quests that you can undertake, and certain events that have time limits on them, meaning if you want to compete, you’ve got to be on every day before the time runs out. It’s a great reason to get outside and get moving, making it not only fun but beneficial to your health.
If you like puzzles, then this is going to be the game for you. In this game, you head to an island that is full of puzzles and questions.

It is like nothing else that you have ever played, and you will appreciate how clever this game is the longer you play it. Trust us, you will never have felt so smart as to when you finish this game.
