I’m taking a look at the best RPG games for mobile to save you time!

Titan Quest Legendary Edition

Available on Android and iOS for $19.99, Titan Quest Legendary Edition is somewhat of a basic Diablo clone, but it’s set in the time of ancient legends. You’re paying money upfront for this mobile RPG, but they’re not going to nickel and dime you to death with the “free to play” strategy. And that is refreshing. If you’re looking for a port of a classic desktop PC game on your mobile device, give Titan Quest Legendary Edition a look. There’s a good chance you’re going to get hooked for at least 20 to 60 hours playing this one. Enjoy! (Google Play / Apple Store)

Planescape: Torment

This epic RPG can be played on Android and iOS mobile devices and costs $9.99. Yes, it’s another desktop game ported to mobile, but that isn’t always a bad thing. The old-school RPG that’s a classic because of its rich, in depth story is now available on mobile, and you should get it. When it comes to the best RPG games for mobile, this is at the top of our list for a reason. It’s a classic RPG with a storyline that will drag you in and keep you entertained for dozens of hours at least. One of the cool things is all the side-characters you can pick up along the way.

Stardew Valley

You can get Stardew Valley on Android and iOS for $4.99. No, it’s not a hardcore RPG, but it’s cheap and will let you chill while you level up your player and homestead. This game was a hit on the PC, and now you can play it on your mobile device. Some might not put it on their list of best RPG games for mobile, but I’m not everyone. After inheriting a farm, you get to level it up through hard work and repetitive actions. Don’t worry. There’s a bit of a story here, and it transfers well to mobile. There’s a reason this game became so popular. Is it time you found out why for yourself? (Google Play / Apple Store)

Grimvalor

Grimvalor is an action RPG side-scroller available on Android and iOS for $6.99. This is another game that not everyone would put on their list of the best RPG games for mobile, but I think it deserves a place. This might be because I’m old and remember going to the arcade to play side-scrollers, but regardless of the reason, it’s a mobile RPG that you should check out. It’s a dark, grim story, but it’s done well. (Google Play / Apple Store)

Langrisser

Langrisser is a free, turn-based tactics RPG for Android and iOS. There’s a bit of story here, yes, but the focus is going to be on the turn-based battles. You can level up your heroes as you fight through all sorts of battles in a lot of different locations. Overall, this is a classic desktop PC game brought to mobile in a way that works. It’s free to play, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to end up paying to unlock all the cool stuff. Give this mobile RPG a chance and see if it’s a good fit for your playstyle.
