4. Bloodstained

The Top 4 on our list of action games for Android and iOS is pure dark and gothic culture. We started with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Surprisingly, ArtPlay announced a partnership with NetEase to launch a mobile version of Bloodstained.


The game arrived on Android and iOS at the end of the year. While it had some issues, Bloodstained is still an excellent choice for anyone looking for a quality action game on Android and iOS. The reason? It takes almost 30 hours to complete the game at 100%. Anyway, content will not be lacking.

Despite being considered "action RPG", we will include Bloodstained and other games of this type in this list, precisely because they are more "action" than traditional RPG.

3 Dead Cells

Speaking of content, how about a game that never stays the same? In Dead Cells, death is never the end.

Created by drinking from the source of the most famous Metroidvanias, Dead Cells takes a different approach. The game procedurally creates all stages each time you die. So no phase will ever be the same. However, there is a certain structure to the world of Dead Cells.

With an outstanding grinding system, with a lot of character evolution options, Dead Cells is one of the most addictive action games to come to Android in 2020.

2. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Most likely Dead Cells and Bloodstained wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the classic Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

The game for Playstation One and Sega Saturn arrived on Android and iOS by surprise in March 2020. The version chosen to be "a mobile" is the PSP version in HD, which is a version with different dialogues and the possibility to play with Maria ( before this was only possible on the Saturn).

Castlevania's influence continues over the years. The game arrived very cheaply in the mobile app stores.

All in all, an unsurpassed classic that remains relevant to this day.

1. Pascal’s Wager

But the game of the year, the best mobile action game of 2020 could not be another. Of course we are talking about Pascal's Wager.

The game has finally brought to mobile that comforting feeling of difficulty that only games like Dark Souls know how to give. A game that doesn't punish you unfairly, it just warns you that you'll need to train a lot or evolve your character to be able to move forward.

Pascal's Wager has that gift of being a “full mobile” game that only true mobile game lovers will recognize. And that's also why it deserves to be here on this list of the best action games of 2020.

We don't even need to comment about the game, right? In a dark world where there is no more sunlight, people use being called colossi that carry "little suns" and they are the ones who scare away a mist that turns people into monsters.

In this dark medieval world, we control characters who are each on their personal quest for redemption. But best of all is the calibrated gameplay that turns Pascal's Wager into a true Souls Mobile.
