    1 – Pascal’s Wager

    One of the most anticipated releases of 2020, Pascal's Wager is an action and RPG game that is very reminiscent of Dark Souls and Bloodborne. This is the kind of game that is sorely missed on cell phones. Triple-A visuals, paid, offline, with a good story and in Spanish. And on top of that with controller support.

    Is there any way to improve more? Has. The campaign is very good, with a very nice gothic atmosphere. The game is just a little heavy, it requires an intermediate or high-end smartphone. Integration with Bluetooth and USB controls is complete. However, even with a controller in hand, prepare to die many times.

    2 – Sky: Children of Light

    It may not seem like it, but the game has its challenges.

    From the same creators of Journey, the award-winning Playstation 3 game, Sky: Children of Light, or Filhos da Luz no España, is an online game in which you'll help little beings recover fallen stars. The mission is to take the stars to their proper constellations. Like Journey, Sky is a contemplative game that seeks to convey an important message about unity.

    Players must work together to help each other out and complete challenges faster. Stunning visuals and an enchanting soundtrack will mark your hours playing this game. Playing with a headset is almost mandatory. The soundtrack is beautiful.

    There are 7 realms to explore in a free game that has a very beautiful message. Unlike other free games, Sky focused on its narrative. There are some in-app purchases, but they are cosmetic only. The impression you will get is that you are playing a premium game.

    And the integration with controls? In Sky the integration is excellent. It immediately recognizes the control and already indicates the commands on the screen with the respective buttons.

    3 – COD Mobile

    Developed by the talented studio Timi, at the request of Tencent and Activision, Call of Duty Mobile has arrived to set the standard for FPS on mobile. Impressive graphics and frantic gameplay. COD mobile brought much of the action from the multiplayer matches of Black Ops 2 and 4.

    Already in its beta test, the game had full support for Bluetooth controls. Support was removed at launch but came back a few months later. However, it only works for Dualshock 4 controllers (for those who don't know, it's the PS4 controller) and the Xbox One controller (X or S).

    At least at the time of editing this video, Ipega controls are incompatible.

    4 – KOF All-Star

    The King of Fighters All-Star is a game that mixes RPG and Beat'em up with a very casual gameplay. Despite being based on one of the most famous fighting game series of the 90s, KOF All Star is not necessarily a game that needs controls.

    But, if you are going to play on a TV Box, or simply want to play without touching the screen, know that the game has full support. The game's art is very beautiful and the graphics are fantastic. Netmarble has done an excellent job of bringing the KOF saga to a new generation on mobile. The story of the game is interesting too.

    However, it disappoints a little for being focused on the gacha elements.

    5 – Dead Cells

    Released in June 2020, Dead Cells is a seasoned Metroidvania with semi-randomly generated scenarios and “Dark Souldiana” difficulty. Created by the French studio Motion Twin, Dead Cells delivers an addictive gameplay in the first few seconds.

    The game explains almost nothing, you start to explore this decaying castle full of monsters. When dying, the most brilliant factor of the game becomes clear: the repetition. Each time you die, the scenery changes. But there's still a pattern to follow with bosses, enemies, and secrets mirrored by a game that isn't infinite. You can beat it, but it's very difficult.

    The loot and character customization is another highlight of Dead Cells. It's a pleasure to make improvements and gain new weapons and abilities. Playing Dead Cells on the touch screen is possible, but this is an “Accelerated Metroidvania”. Playing with controller makes the experience super fluid and avoids “missclicks”.

    MissClick or “MissTouch” for those who don't know is when you accidentally touch a button on the screen or make a mistake when touching one. In control this does not happen, the experience is precise, fast and necessary. Playing Dead Cells on the controller is a delight.

    6 – Castlevania SoTN

    And speaking of MetroidVania, how about everyone's father? Yes I know he's not the father of the genre, but it's the game that got everyone hooked on it. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was not unanimous in its release back in 1997. The game received average reviews and even modest coverage in the gringo media.

    But Konami's game gained word of mouth and soon became the indispensable game that everyone considers today. And with all merits. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is still one of the best 2D games of all time.

    The game was re-released on Android in 2020 and is flawless. The only thing missing was a Spanish translation. But for those who don't want to use an emulator, you can play the Android version because the controller support is full.

    7 - Fortnite

    Fortnite controller support was never really new to the game. From day one of the launch on the Apple Store, the company already confirmed that there would be controller support.

    On Android it was no different. Epic's Battle Royale fully supports Bluetooth controllers of any type: Ipega, GameSir, PS4, Xbox One, etc.

    Fortnite is a very complex Battle Royale to play on mobile. With a controller, the task of aiming, shooting and building is less complicated without your fingers covering 80% of the screen.

    8 – Bright Memory Mobile

    We still don't know if Bright Memory will be released in full on mobile phones. As soon as the game came out for Android, the producer has already announced a pseudo-sequel for PS5. The version available on Android is practically a demo, so don't worry about your expectations regarding this game.

    In Bright Memory Mobile, you control a young woman who wakes up not quite understanding how she got cybernetic implants. She is then pursued by agents of a corporation. It's just an hour of gameplay or less. Honestly, I didn't really like the game, because it seems that we probably won't even have it complete on Android.

    Which is really a shame, as Bright Memory Mobile looks great with bluetooth control. A great adventure that I wanted to see complete on mobile, right guys?

    9 – Unknown Fate

    Released first for PC, Unknown Fate hit mobiles and consoles in May 2019.

    This is a first-person puzzle game that takes place in really strange scenarios. You will travel through incredible worlds collecting the memories of Richard, the main character of this strange journey.

    Unknown Fate might just seem like an “OK” game on consoles, but the mobile version turned out really well. A quality port of the PC game with beautiful graphics.

    The gameplay basically consists of walking through the scenarios and trying to solve the puzzles in this strange world. What really keeps you in the game is trying to find out what happened to the protagonist. Did he die, is he dreaming or was he abducted by beings from the fifth dimension?

    10 – HeroVersus

    A fighting game with interesting setups and very fun to play on touch screens. HeroVersus is designed to be played on the touchscreen, but the developers have included the ability to play with a Bluetooth controller as well.

    This fighting game looks like a pseudo successor to Street Fighter V on mobile. An exceptional title focused on competitive PvP. Despite focusing on PvP, the game has an arcade mode, which is how we unlock new fighters.

    11 – Table Top Racing: World Tour

    Mobile version of a 2016 game, Table Top Racing is a racing game with premium, offline gameplay. You control racing cars on tracks that are on top of a table. Everything in miniature.

    The game has elements to diversify the gameplay such as power-ups and shortcuts. All in all, no-compromise fun in a game that won't fill you with ads. The cool part comes precisely from the control support. In this game he is total!

    You can even play with split screen, if you have two controllers and a powerful smartphone or tablet.

    12 - Oddmar

    Best action-adventure game of 2019

    This game is already repeated here on the Channel. But there's always the tip, it's really worth downloading Oddmar.

    This charming adventure arrived on Android in January 2019, already supporting bluetooth controls.

    Command the weakest Viking in your village on a quest for courage and determination. A cute game, full of grace and very beautiful.

    13 – Rangers of Oblivion

    Released in the west by GT Arcade, Rangers of Oblivion is an MMORPG with a very beautiful graphic and missions to defeat giant beasts, which is reminiscent of Monster Hunter in certain ways. In command of a Ranger, your mission is to clean the lands of Malheim that are infested with monsters. The plot is pretty cool and the game has a story with Spanish subtitles.

    Control support is a bit lacking. Despite showing as full compatibility. It will still require some on-screen commands, like talking to NPCs and choosing dialogue options. Oh, and you can create a Geralt from The Witcher 3 in the game.

    14 – Grimvalor

    We already talked about Grimvalor here on the Channel, in the video of offline games 2020. This impressive Action game is not to be missed. Considered by many to be Dark Souls 2.5D, this game is a hack-and-slash game with fast-paced combat in a dark world.

    Take control of a lone warrior on a mission to restore a corrupted kingdom. The game looks free but it's not, after the first act you have to pay. But believe me, it's worth it. One of the most satisfying games to beat on Android.

    15 – Asphalt 9: Legends

    Asphalt 9: Legends is Gameloft's latest major release. For some time now, the company has been disappointing. Its focus has been on simple games and many updates to existing games.

    And what's good about Asphalt 9: Legends? Good! We still have here a fun racing game with an arcade focus and quick matches.

    But the competitive part of the game is very hectic and you may not do very well in it. If you want more precision in your movements, good control support is essential. Fortunately Asphalt 9 has it.

    16 – Dead Effect 2

    The horror game involving zombies and monsters in space has already been mentioned in two lists here on the channel. But Dead Effect 2 deserves to be here for its campaign and for the good support for Bluetooth controls. Even controls that seem incompatible, just open the game menu, choose the action buttons and continue playing.

    Get ready for a lot of scares, shooting and action in a game that was once heavy, but now runs on any Android smartphone.

    17 – Foxyland 2

    A cool platform game for Android.

    In Foxyland 2, the fox's wife and children are kidnapped. It's up to Foxy to rescue her family. The plot is silly and the focus is on gameplay very similar to games like Super Mario World.

    Good music and a beautiful pixelart look, The game offers the option of cooperative gameplay, where one controls via touch and the other on the controller.

    There are about 40 stages, but the game is very short, about an hour or less to complete. A good game to play with two. Speaking of which, there is a list on the site with only local multiplayer games, take a look.

    18 – Stardew Valley

    Stardew Valley is the best mobile RPG of 2019.

    Stardew Valley is proof that a game to be good doesn't need dazzling graphics or a millionaire budget. Made by just one person, this little giant has already conquered the world and is one of the most successful indie games today.

    In this friendly RPG, your character receives an inheritance farm. When moving to the place, the player realizes that he will have many more tasks than taking care of plants and animals. It will be possible to mines, caves and even face some combats.

    The similarity with Harvest Moon is undeniable, so much so that the developer does not hide the inspiration. However, Stardew Valley goes beyond being a farm simulator and introduces many RPG elements.

    19 – Nimian Legends BrightRidge e Vandgels

    Another indie game from just a single developer is. Nimian Legends BrightRidge. In this open world game, the mission is to explore the vast landscape, discovering its secrets and unlocking new areas.

    Despite the rather vast world, don't expect too many combats. The game focuses on missions to help the surrounding residents. It's a game with a message very similar to Okami's.

    In BrightRidge, you have to switch between two characters to complete all the game's objectives.

    For those who want a little more action, the tip is Nimian Legends Vandgels This sequel has graphics and gameplay very similar to the previous title. The main differentiator is a greater focus on history and combat. This time you control a girl with a sword and you will face villains and fantastic creatures.

    20 – Street Fighter 4 CE

    Look, I'm not a big fan of what Capcom did, in just retreading a 2010 game and releasing it for Android in 2018.

    But anyway, it's worth it because the company corrected a blunder of years. For those who don't know, Capcom never released Street Fighter 4 globally on Android. The game was only released for LG devices in some countries and then pirated around the world.

    But going back to Street Fighter 4 Champion Edition, it doesn't seem like it, but this version has full support for Bluetooth controllers. Support is only present in the most important part, at the time of the beating.

    On large screens like 10-inch Tablets, the game is just awful. But on cell phones, it's pretty good. Not to mention that you can send Hadoukens and Shoryukens without problems.

    21 – Grid Autosport

    Another figure repeated here on the channel is Grid Autosport, The racing game is one of the games with the best graphics on Android. Despite being a simulator, the mode to play with the accelerometer is not as good as in Real Racing 3, for example.

    But playing with Bluetooth controller makes the experience fluid and very natural. And with Grid's look, the impression we get is that we have a Triple-A game in our hands.

    For those who don't know, Grid Autosport is the same racing game released for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game was ported to cell phones keeping all the features and is dubbed in Spanish.

    22 – Off The Road

    Off The Road is an open world driving simulator that is free to download and play on Android. The game consists of walking around an island full of small challenges and completing them in the best way possible to unlock new areas.

    In addition to vehicles such as cars and trucks, it is even possible to fly a helicopter. The game is a simulator but not exactly a racing game, some objectives will require patience to complete.

    23 – Wonder Boy: The Dragons Trap

    A masterpiece of remakes little mentioned by mobile youtubers. Wonder boy: The Dragon's Trap. The game was recreated from scratch by the Lizardcube studio, which not only brought the Master System classic back to life, but also gave the option to choose between old or completely revamped graphics.

    The art of the game is a show apart with a very beautiful look. This magical adventure begins immediately after the end of the Master's Wonder Boy in Monster Land. The protagonist is turned into a lizard and must figure out how to turn into a boy (or girl in this version) again. But then we realized something, with each new transformation, he can access new areas and places.

    Among the novelties that Dragon's Trap introduced in 1989 were RPG concepts. The player can collect gold to buy equipment and improve his character. In short, an excellent adventure game that is even better to play with a Bluetooth controller, as some parts will require that millimeter precision that was necessary in old-school platform games.

    24 – Guns and Spurs 2

    Guns and Spurs 2 follows exactly the same proposal as the first. An open world sandbox game set in the wild west. The player will be able to fulfill the most varied missions that go from hunting bandits to competing in shooting minigames, horse racing, taking care of a herd of cows and much more. The game is 100% OFFLINE.

    With a proposal to expand the gameplay of the first game, and deliver better graphics, Guns and Spurs 2 does not exactly fulfill the role it was given. The game is cool, for an offline and free game. However, Guns and Spurs 2 delivers repetitive gameplay. Some people like it, but here I found it a little too much.

    However, it is enough for those looking for a free hobby. The game supports Bluetooth controls, but in the tests here, Ípega crashed a few times with this game. This may be fixed in future updates.

    And to finish off our list, a game much requested in the previous post: Minecraft.

    This game needs no introduction, right? Minecraft is Minecraft, the Mobile version has long ceased to be the “Pocket Edition” version and today is “Bedrock”, the same version for PCs and Consoles, with all the features. What you really want to know is how is the integration with Bluetooth controls, right?

    The integration is total, the game works with literally any controller.
