Nexon's big hit for 2018. Darkness Rises is an online RPG that could very well pass for an offline game. The game focuses like few on singleplayer, with the right to a story in Spanish.

Another big surprise of 2018. So, out of nowhere, GrandChase was announced for cell phones with Spanish dubbing and subtitles. The game is a little different from the original and focuses its gameplay on a combat system that mixes action and strategy. The story mode is also well resolved and encourages the player to finish it.

5. PUBG Mobile Lite
One of the great successes (or not) of Tencent was to launch a Lite version of PUBG Mobile, intended for more modest devices, the game still doesn't run lighter than the competition, but it's already a great advance. However, it's still in beta and that's why it's not that famous.

7. Final Fighter / Soul Warrior
Removed from Google Play without warning, this amazing fighting game is available in APK Pure. If anyone asks you what a free mobile fighting game should look like, the answer is Final Fighter. The game won a Chinese version under the tutelage of the powerful Tencent, which remodeled some things. The game remains practically the same and even gained characters from SNK (officially).

- Shining Force Classics
- Sonic CD Classic
- Street of rage 2
10. Rebirth M
If Lineage 2 Revolution had goosebumps in the first half, Rebirth M kept the flame of 3D MMORPGs alive in the second. The game stands out for having a system of "transformations", which allows your character to become a completely different one. Most of the time, you will transform into a very powerful giant demon.

11. SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI D×XNUMX
One of the proofs that RPGs don't always have to be "medieval". With a very current theme, the game puts the player in the shoes of demon hunters who use the cell phone as a weapon. The story is very cool and the gameplay mixes traditional RPG with elements of “Pokémon”, as it is possible to befriend some demons and use them to your advantage.

13. Hungry Dragon
Free and offline games for Android are getting rarer and rarer. Hungry Dragon is a pleasant surprise and one of the most fun games of 2018. In the same style as the classic Hungry Shark, in this game, the objective is to feed hungry dragons, whether with humans or other animals. The 3D graphics are amazing and light at the same time.

Very good platform and action game in the style of Super Meat Boy. That kind of game that demands precision and has a sadistic difficulty. It's also offline.

18. Maze: The Shadow of Light
There's no way to hide it, 2018 was the year of RPGs on Android. Even with all the noise of Battle Royale, I've never seen so many RPGs released online as in 2018. But along with quantity, there's also quality. Maze, for example, is an excellent game that mixes action, good graphics and lots of content to explore.

Many games have long sought to be a “mobile overwatch”. The nickname, forced to exhaustion by youtuber never stuck. But of all, Shellfire is one of the most promising precisely for not betting only on the “Hero Shooter” formula. The game has zombie and battle royale modes.

24. Billion Lords
Strategy game where you are the villain. The objective is to set up defenses for your dungeon and send the heroes to the other spiritual plane. A very fun game, but it does require an internet connection. I don't know what for.

25. F1 Mobile Racing
F1 Mobile Racing let me down a bit. I already expected an online racing game, but honestly I expected more. The game focuses on short, repetitive races against other players. But for those who enjoy Formula 1 games, it's still a good pastime.
