The best mobile RPGs feature, at least in some capacity, common tropes that you can also see in their PC and console brethren. Expect wide-open worlds, lengthy and engrossing stories, characters with a high level of depth, and complex systems to learn. Sure, there are plenty of ‘RPGs’ on mobile that feature none of the above, but they won’t appear on this list.
Our picks range from excellent mobile exclusives to ports of genre classics, and every single one of them oozes quality and content. So much so, that you might want to book a week off work or take a longer commute. We’re in it with you for the long haul.
