Oh, you might say you are. But we all know you”re a sucker for a list. Everyone is.

Besides, we haven”t covered the best iOS and Android games of the year yet. Not in any comprehensive kind of way.

We”ve heard from our individual contributors about their personal favourite portable games of the year, and we”ve provided a simple PG top 5 that covers as many bases as possible.

This here is a comprehensive rundown of the 25 best mobile games of the year, taking into consideration all of the aforementioned sources and PG”s peerless reviews archive, as well as maybe just a smidgen of personal bias.

Happy New Year, everybody!

Genre: Puzzle
Find out more about Part Time UFO

In a year where Nintendo went eerily quiet on the mobile front, it was left to its pals at HAL to come up with the goods. That it did with Part Time UFO, a super-playable grabber claw-based physics puzzler with charm to burn.

7
Alto”s Odyssey

Publisher: Snowman
Available on: iOS + Android
Genre: Endless running
Find out more about Alto”s Odyssey

Alto”s Odyssey is a fairly by-the-book autorunner when you get down to it. However, with graphics and gameplay polished to an uncommon sheen, it comfortably transcends this lack of originality.

8

Available on: iOS + Android
Genre: Casual, Film/TV tie-in, RPG
Find out more about Reigns: Game of Thrones

Adding Game of Thrones”s epic world building to the decision-making algorithms of the Reigns series was a bit of a no-brainer. Reigns: Game of Thrones was a predictably awesome casual RPG.

Find out more about PUBG Mobile

As a translation of a game famous for its unwieldiness and its hardcore demands, few expected PUBG Mobile to be any good. Amazingly, it works a treat, making for one of the year”s biggest multiplayer shooters.

15
Fortnite Battle Royale

Publisher: Epic Games
Available on: iOS + Android + Switch
Genre: Action, Shooter
Find out more about Fortnite Battle Royale

18
Antihero – Digital Board Game

Find out more about Antihero – Digital Board Game

Released right at the very start of the year, we almost forgot about Antihero. Which would have been a crime, as it”s one of the most accessible and polished digital boardgames available.

19
Chaos Reborn: Adventures

Publisher: Big Blue Bubble
Available on: iOS + Android
Genre: Strategy
Find out more about Chaos Reborn: Adventures

An unapologetically deep and involving strategy game that will chew you up and spit you out if you don”t give it your full attention. Chaos Reborn: Adventures is brutal, but we love it for that.
