The Best Mobile Phone Games

The Best Mobile Phone Games

Mobile phone games have been improving at a rate that we would never have expected just a few years ago. Smartphone technology is constantly improving, and the best mobile games are only getting better.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a huge number of game releases that put phone technology to the test, and even free-to-play games and mobile casino games are defying expectations.

Let’s take a look at some of the best paid and free-to-play mobile games and mobile casino games taking the mobile gaming world by storm.


The best paid mobile games

We’ll start with some smartphone games that come with a price tag. Here are a few great titles to explore:

GRID Autosport

Launched in 2019, GRID Autosport, developed by Codemasters, became an instant hit with racing-game fans. While there is a price to pay for this game, it’s really nothing hefty considering the quality that players are getting. The game has no advertising and no in-app purchases. It has incredible graphics, impressive controls, excellent hardware controller support and much more. GRID Autosport is undoubtedly one of the best mobile racing games out there, and players can look forward to plenty of cars to unlock, plus a massive variety of styles when it comes to racing. 



GRIS offers something a little different and artsy for those who aren’t keen on the plethora of shooting games that seem to be coming out at the moment. GRIS is the main character: she’s a young girl seemingly lost in her own world and dealing with painful personal experiences. Players get to explore the world with GRIS and solve the puzzles that come up along the way. This may be a slow game for some, but it’s a lovely experience of storytelling that gets its strength from striking visual elements throughout.



Levelhead is brought to you by Butterscotch Shenanigans, the very same developer responsible for Crashlands. Crashlands topped the charts for a good couple of years, and it wouldn’t surprise us if Levelhead did the same. What really makes this game top-notch is the custom level building: players can build their own levels and upload them to the game. Other players can then download these levels, and the most popular ones are added to the VIP vault. Every level has its own leaderboard, and it’s cross-platform, with cloud saves. Levelhead is free to play with the app subscription service Google Play Pass, if players have it.


Best free-to-play, fun mobile games

There are, of course, many games you can play free of charge on your mobile. Here are a few examples.

Call of Duty: Mobile

Call of Duty from Activision is one of the most popular video and mobile game franchises in the world, and it consistently achieves top ratings. The mobile version has the normal FPS (first-person shooter) online PvP (player versus player) mode, along with a 100-player battle royale. In the words of the developer, “it does battle royale like [the game] PUBG Mobile, but also regular FPS PvP like Critical Ops or Modern Combat”. There seems to be an endless number of things to do in the game, which – given its free-to-play status – is pretty surprising. Keep in mind that there are in-game purchases in Call of Duty: Mobile.


Genshin Impact

If you’re looking for an action RPG (role-playing game) with gacha (toy-vending machine) mechanics, then Genshin Impact is just the game for you. Published by miHoYo, the game made a splash when it was released, not least because of its stunning graphics and visuals. Genshin Impact isn’t just a visual masterpiece – it’s packed with excellent gameplay mechanics and a wide-open world to explore, which is why we think it’s one of the best mobile phone games on the market today.


Legends of Runeterra

Legends of Runeterra is a relatively new online game from developer Riot Games, and is similar to other popular digital card games like Blizzard’s Hearthstone. It’s an online battler where players collect cards with which to build up their own decks. Once the decks are in place, players will take on other online opponents. The excellent gameplay, combined with the fact that there are 24 champions and players can invite friends to duel, makes this an entertaining and social mobile game.


The best online casino games for mobile

You’ll be pleased to know that mobile phones can support all types of online casino games these days. Let’s dig a little deeper.

Mobile slot games

Slot machines are synonymous with casinos, and they were some of the first casino games to become available in online casinos. The move to mobile has been just as seamless, and they remain a favourite with players of all ages. Their popularity comes down to many factors: the sheer variety of slots available, their ease of play, the massive jackpots, and the excellent quality of modern animations. Online Slots is a favourite casino game, and their move to mobile has only improved their popularity.


Mobile table games

The demand for casino table games such as online roulette, online blackjack and online poker has shot up recently, thanks to technological improvements that have enhanced the gaming experience. In some modern versions, players can now chat to each other, see the dealer, and take part in actual virtual games with other players rather than against a computer. Live casinos have taken these games to a whole new level, and we expect them to be played even more often as time goes on. Of course, there are also hundreds of different versions of mobile table games available for players to explore.


Live casino games

Live online casino games are as close to a real-life casino experience as you can get. They are streamed to players from dedicated studios, where live games are handled by experienced dealers in real-time. Cameras are set up for every game, and the way the camera pans in and out makes it a hyper-realistic gaming experience. Players can choose to stay anonymous, or turn on their cameras and chat to other players and dealers using their audio or live chat platform. The best mobile casinos offer these amazing online game experiences.
