My Top 10 of Most Popular Mobile Games in 2023
Stay in tune with free popular mobile games from franchises like Harry Potter, Hoyoverse, Pokémon or Marvel. There is no particular order in this top, given the variety of proposals and genres. It was a little hard to choose only 10, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy these games as I do.
Harry Potter: Magic Awakened
This game magically appeared in my recommendations from the Play Store. Mesmerized by magic and the Tim-Burtonesque style, I agreed to everything and went to Hogwarts hand in hand with Hagrid.
What I found was a combination of an RPG with magic cards, where we create our character and move around the world of Harry Potter. But that's not all: magical battles and broom rides around Hogwarts also await us.
Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is a 3D adventure RPG with card-based real-time PvE battles, ranked...
Honkai: Star Rail
The first thing you see is the peaceful loneliness of a planet and an adventurous train in the middle of the screen, inviting you to take a ticket for another reality.
This turn-based RPG is full of surprises and challenges when we must put together a battle strategy in our team. If you already know Genshin Impact, this game will be very familiar to you. Also, if you love Sci-fi, here you’ll find the full aesthetic with space ships, cyber-guns and more.
Honkai: Star Rail is a high-quality strategy RPG by the developers of Genshin Impact. It...
Bringing back our all-time favorite Pokémon like Pikachu and Charizard, Pokémon UNITE has risen up in the MOBA genre with a bang. However, it has its own rules, so make sure to make the biggest number of points for your team to win.
With approximately 50 million downloads on the Play Store, this is one of the most popular mobile games out there. I'm glad to see the Pokémon franchise venture into a different genre of video games than what we used to see.
Pokemon Unite is the iconic franchise's venture into the MOBA space and it has us...
Despite having a bad start after Blizzard's awkward announcement in 2018, Diablo Immortal has managed to survive and even become one of the most popular games of the moment.
The great variety of character classes and fighting styles, added to an open world and challenges with dungeons, define it as an extremely interesting and quite enjoyable game.
Besides its controversial monetization, I still recommend taking a look at this dark world full of contrasts and formidable monsters.
Diablo Immortal is a cross-platform loot-heavy action MMORPG with a beautiful open world, six non-gender-bound...
And by the hand of one of the most powerful companies in the world, Disney Mirrorverse is presented to us. This gacha RPG with Disney characters immerses us in the alternate magical world in which the Guardians of the universe must fight with evil versions of themselves called the Fractured.
We can play with 44 available characters and even team up mixing heroes with villains.
Disney Mirrorverse is a polished hero-based action RPG where we take a team of popular...
Marvel Snap is a very easy to understand, dynamic card game in which you must control two of the three locations on the board to win. Although the matches last only a maximum of 3 minutes and the gameplay seems very easy, it also leaves room for complex strategies and tactical depth.
Marvel Snap is a fun and surprisingly unique CCG card battler with fast-paced matches and...
Rocket League Sideswipe
The legendary soccer car game has its own mobile version, full of new matches and crazy, eccentric and fun gameplay. If you are familiar with the PC version, let me tell you that the mobile version has the same addictive qualities.
One of the biggest differences between the two versions is that the mobile is played in a 2D field adapted to the needs of the device, but the speed and madness remain.
Rocket League Sideswipe is an incredibly fast-paced multiplayer soccer racing game and the official mobile...
Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds
Immerse yourself in a new story in a world full of adventures with this MMORPG. Visually it's incredibly interesting, and it reminds me a bit of old school Studio Ghibli movies.
However, it has some questionable aspects that don't make it feel so free despite taking place in an open world.
Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds is a beautiful 3D MMORPG with five classes and a...
I know you will have hours and hours of fun playing this. In Vampire Survivors you will have to survive as long as possible against hordes of monsters and other enemies using projectiles, swords, axes and much more.
The game increases its difficulty progressively and therefore you'll have to evolve your character with weapons and improved magic.
Vampire Survivors is an incredibly popular reverse bullet-hell roguelike inspired by Magic Survival.
20 Minutes Till Dawn
Can you survive 20 minutes against hordes of enemies? This game is very similar to Vampire Survivor, with the difference that here you have to manually shoot your weapon among other game dynamics.
I definitely couldn't survive 20 minutes when I played it, but I enjoyed every moment running away and killing monsters in that dark forest.
20 Minutes Till Dawn is a fun take on the new Reverse Bullet-Hell genre, where...
