See the RPG games for Android and iOS that stood out the most in 2020.

Mobile gamers have transformed the RPG genre into basically two types: online and offline.

While online RPGs were the majority in 2020, offline ones surprised with consistent and immersive experiences. Check out the best RPG games for Android and iOS of 2020.

– Dragon King

It seems like a million years ago, but Dragon Raja was released globally on Android and iOS only in March 2020.



The game had huge hype, due to its graphics with impressive effects like Depth of field.

Produced by Tencent, Dragon Raja arrived in the west by Archosaur Games.

Past the hype, the game held its audience captive, due to the focus on the plot. However, we had much better games in this aspect in 2020.

– Another Eden

In the 90s, role-playing games were characterized on the Super Nintendo and Mega Drive as Japanese games with characters with colored and spiky hair. The subgenre “JRPG” (Japanese RPG) was born there.

It may not seem like it, but Another Eden is the fruit of that era. The game was created by Masato Kato who was a producer of games like Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross and Xenogear.

Another Eden was released in 2019, but the partnerships throughout 2020, all with games from the 90s and 2000s, make Another Eden a perfect game for those who grew up in the 90s and enjoyed games like Final Fantasy VI or Chrono Trigger.

– Heroes War: Counterattack

Com2Us is a company that understands very well the “scratch” when it comes to free and Online RPG games. The producer of Skylanders and Summoners Wars released a new game in 2020 that caught the attention of those who enjoy this type of game: online RPG with an anime look.

Heroes War: Counterattack is a turn-based RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world that is now overrun with zombies. The Z virus was dormant under the glaciers, but due to global warming, it has been released into the world once again. Humanity tried to create a vaccine, but it was too late.

Think of Heroes War: Counterattack as Summoners Wars more for teenagers, full of “Waifu” and “Husbandos”, the game has very stylized characters ready to delight the kids.

– Guardian Tales

Guardian Tales was one of the best surprises of 2020. The silly looking RPG game proves to be one of the most addictive crap to play on mobile.

Guardian Tales is an enchanting adventure with that adventurous feel of the old JRPGs.


Unlike Another Eden, Guardian Tales has action combat and Spanish subtitles.

It's still a very naughty gacha, but it's possible to play a lot and enjoy the story without spending a penny.

– A3 Still Alive

A3 Still Alive has landed in the saturated world of MMORPGs and online RPGs.

The gameplay and setting are very reminiscent of games like Black Desert Mobile and I have the impression that the idea here was to make a game in this style for those who don't have a very powerful cell phone.

Really new, Netmarble brought a Battle Royale mode.

– Titan Quest

Yes, this game is quite old, from 2016, but it is available on Play Pass and I honestly can't stop playing it.

Titan Quest is a Diablo-style RPG that is absolutely addictive. The gameplay is very simple and focused on action. You start by helping a village and killing some beasts. The story revolves around Greek Mythology.

When you blink, 3 hours have passed and you don't want to stop.


Titan Quest was great on cell phones and today it's a super lightweight game that runs literally on any cell phone.

– The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross


A mix of cardgame and RPG, The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross brings an exciting narrative based on the popular anime.

The visuals are very beautiful and the voice acting is excellent.

In addition to presenting the first two seasons of the anime, the game has an interesting co-op multiplayer mode.

Free, Grand Cross still has a differential in relation to competitors. It is much friendlier for those who will play without spending a penny. You can watch ads to earn “shots” in the game.

– Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Battle Chasers: Nightwar is inspired by a comic book series. As if this incredibly badass art wasn't enough, the game is still a spectacular classy RPG.

Assemble a group of heroes of different classes and face a journey full of dangers. Hmm, sounds like the plot of another online gacha RPG right? Wrong! Battle Chasers: Nightwar is paid and offline. There is not even a single in-game purchase.

Originally released for consoles and PC, Battle Chasers: Nightwar has arrived fully on mobile and delivers a rewarding journey. Maybe the only thing you don't like is the turn-based combat.

The game was originally released in 2019, but it is on the list due to being available on Google Play Pass.

– Star Wars Kotor II

Surprisingly, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords is released on Android and iOS. The game is the same released for PCs and Xbox.

Bioware leaves and another big name in RPGs enters to produce The Sith Lords. This time it was up to Obsidian Entertainment to produce the game. But calm down, if you played Kotor I, know that the experience is so similar that it is possible to leave the game in Spanish with the same trick that was done in the previous game (translation file here).

Knights of the Old Republic II picks up five years after the events of the first game and follows the story of The Exile, a Jedi Knight who was exiled from the Jedi Order. During this time, the Jedi Order was almost completely wiped out by the Sith. The game begins with the protagonist waking up from unconsciousness in an asteroid mining facility. After he or she escapes with the help of their group members, they find the person who exiled them ten years ago, who sends the protagonist on a mission to search for the remaining Jedi to fight the Sith.

Combat is not real-time action.

– Genshin Impact

And of course, the best RPG game of 2020 couldn't be another, at least on mobile. Genshin Impact is the best looking and most technically impressive mobile game we had in 2020. It even generated controversy, as many RPG games that came after Genshin Impact could not live up to the high standard set by it.

Genshin Impact is so big that it created a problem for itself. A lot of people drop the title because it's too grand. It takes a long time to get through the first chapter and finally “open” the entire game map. In addition to that, miHoYo is constantly releasing updates with new areas. I don't know how it will look in the future. Will Genshin Impact be the first game to surpass the 10 GB barrier on mobile?

A real open world awaits you in this great release of 2020. A gigantic game, in Spanish, that really reminds you of the old PC open world RPGs.

But unlike other games, Genshin is a single player focused title. The game's co-op mode is even a little "covered" and is just for you to play with your friends. Many missions, you will still have to perform solo.

The focus on the player experience is the great thing about Genshin Impact. As it is not multiplayer versus (yet), the game is 100% focused on the story and evolution of its characters.

Yes, I know he's a very naughty gacha, but check it out, it's not mandatory to have all the characters to enjoy at least 40 hours of adventure.

So despite its main flaw, Genshin Impact still shines because of its qualities. A magnificent RPG that has successfully set a new benchmark for mobile gaming.
