Mobile Legends, Call of Duty Mobile, and Genshin Impact are today’s most popular titles.
If you play these games, sometimes there’s just nothing like trying out a new game to keep your gaming experience fresh.
It can be a bit daunting to look for a new game to try though. After all, the App Store and/or the Google Play Store have a dizzying array of games available, making it hard to determine which game to try.
If you’re at a loss on what new game to try out, we have your back.
From competitive multiplayer titles to compelling single player experiences, we list down five underrated mobile games that should be on your radar.
For gamers who play League of Legends or Valorant, it may be a bit unexpected to see a title by Riot Games in this list.
Though in the current mobile gaming landscape in the Philippines, not a lot of people are into card games, much less Legends of Runeterra.
Even though this game may not have the buzz of something like Wild Rift, Runeterra is a blast to play, and it’s easy to enjoy for free.
In almost any other card game, you can shell out money to buy card packs.
This means if you want to keep your collection competitive, you’ll likely need to spend money on packs as most games don’t offer enough free packs to keep your deck up to date.
But with Runeterra, the game is designed so that you can’t buy card packs. Instead, cards can be accumulated through playing the game at a generous rate.
This means that even if you don’t spend money, as long as you play Legens of Runeterra, you will have a competitive deck.
For gacha lovers and anime fans, KonoSuba: Fantastic Days was recently released on Android and iOS.
This gacha game is based on the popular KonoSuba anime series, and it features a fun RPG system, as well as an original story that promises to have you grinning from ear to ear.
Best of all, unlike other gacha games where spending money is almost a requirement to enjoy, KonoSuba: Fantastic Days is rather friendly for free-to-play gamers.
Since last year, the popularity of the game Plague Inc. shot up (for obvious reasons).
While Plague Inc. rose in popularity, the Ndemic Creations also have an equally fun yet underrated mobile game called Rebel Inc.
In this strategy game, players are tasked with stabilizing a country that has been rocked by inner conflict.
The goal for players is to keep the country’s citizens happy, all while stopping potential insurgencies from inciting a rebellion.
If Plague Inc. was a gamified version of a pandemic, Rebel Inc. is a playable country management simulator that can be rather realistic yet fun.
The other games in this list are free-to-play, but not Florence, and for good reason.
Even though you’ll need to purchase it, you probably won’t regret it as Florence is a unique single player experience that will stay with you even after you finish the game.
Published by Annapurna Interactive (the publisher of What Remains of Edith Finch and Outer Wilds), Florence is a more story-driven game that follows the titular character as she experiences a blossoming relationship.
This kind of experience can usually only be had in indie titles for PC or console, but Florence does this all while taking advantage of the mobile format.
If you’re up for something completely different from the typical multiplayer mobile title, Florence is well worth checking out.
Finally, we have Ninja Arashi and Ninja Arashi 2, single player games that will give you a major challenge, all in a package that’s sleek and stylish.
In these games, you play as the ninja named Arashi, and they are simple action platformers at first glance.
But once you play these games, you’ll quickly discover that they have deep RPG elements, as well as challenging platforming segments.
If those aren’t enough to pose a challenge for you, the Ninja Arashi games both have epic boss battles that promise to test your mettle.
Whether you want to test your strategic skills in Legends of Runeterra, or want to have a unique experience in Florence, the best device to play these games on is a capable gaming smartphone.
Now, if your phone is already showing its age, you might want to consider upgrading to one of the many 5G gaming smartphones that smart has on offer via Smart Signature Postpaid plans.
