The Best Multiplayer Games for Your Mobile Phone

Share this:

Mobile phone gaming has certainly kicked on since the days of Snake on what tended to be a device which resembled a brick, that much is patently obvious. With the seemingly never-ending technological advancements that continually come our way, mobile phones have reaped the rewards. 

We can do pretty much anything we want on our miniature handheld mobiles now, be it ordering your Christmas presents via one of the many online stores around the world, catching up on your favourite television shows whilst making your commute into work, playing various games like those available on or updating your Instagram profile with some recent holiday photos. The options are, quite frankly, amazing. 

Mobile gaming’s popularity has continually grown with the technological development in this space in particular, so with that in mind, we thought we’d go through some of the best multiplayer mobile games around, so you can enjoy some mobile gaming alongside the console options which are available too. Mobile phone games are getting better and better, so here are some of the best around at the moment. 

AdventureQuest 3D

A fairly new multiplayer game for mobile, AdventureQuest 3D is a certainly a fun creation which is capable of keeping you entertained for hours on end. With its vast array of quests, dungeons, raid bosses, various classes, and with the option of crafting, this MMORPG is proving to be hugely popular. Arguably its best feature, though, is its ability to function on more than one platform, with the option of playing the game on your mobile phone or your PC. 

Critical Ops

Enjoy defeating and wiping out evil terrorists? Then Critical Ops could be the game for you. Alternatively, though, you can also enter the dark side and join forces with the terrorists too. The game features multiplayer combat and – refreshingly – has no in-app purchases which tend to frustrate and have a detrimental effect on the overall game play. 

Crossy Road 

An arcade platformer, Crossy Road is a game which is all about survival. To survive you need to cross roads and streams without dying and essentially make it as long as possible. With its vast array of characters and the ability to play against up to four of your friends – if connected to a WiFi network – this family friendly, fun game is an entertaining play. 


A sports game had to make the list and there aren’t many better than NBA Jam, especially for multiplayer gaming. Featuring two-on-two basketball with the rules dumbed down a bit, players can steal and knock their opponents in an attempt to gain various rewards. Just like basketball in real life, the game is all about outscoring your opponent but with added mayhem. Throw in the fact it has no in-app purchases, local multiplayer, online multiplayer, Android TV support and controller support, then this arcade basketball game is well worth a go. 

PUBG Mobile

Everyone’s heard of PUBG, right? This massively popular game is now available on mobile and has taken the mobile gaming world by storm. Like its console version, PUBG Mobile is incredibly fun and entertaining, and is a multiplayer masterpiece. Dropping onto an island with 99 other players never felt better, especially via a mobile phone device whilst on-the-go. 

NOVA Legacy 

The latest creation from the NOVA franchise, NOVA Legacy is the first one in the series that features online multiplayer and is proving to be one of the best multiplayer games currently available on mobile. With its campaign mode, various multiplayer features such as death matches and character customisation, NOVA Legacy is a real treat. 

Call of Duty Mobile

Launched just this month, Call of Duty Mobile (or COD Mobile), has already reached millions of gamers, and it doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon. While the gameplay might be old hat for console/PC gamers, mobile gamers are just now experiencing the addictive multiplayer first-person shooter gameplay that made the game a household name.

Couple that it’s free-to-play, and it’s a guaranteed formula for success. Of course, there are already cheaters running rampant, but if Tencent and Activision can keep updating the game, and maybe ease up on the microtransactions (highly unlikely), Call of Duty might be ruling the mobile gaming sphere as it does console gaming.


Is there even any doubt? Fortnite has not only become the most popular game on PC and consoles, it’s also one of the most popular games of all time. It’s now gotten so big that it has entered pop culture, and Epic’s bank account is evident of this.

There’s not a lot to be said regarding Fortnite. It’s free-to-play, and is the most popular battle royale game out on the market right now. The fact that it works so well on mobile is just the icing on top for Epic, and why it’s easy to understand why it’s so popular.
