Many gamers like to play not only on their PCs or other gaming platforms, but on their phones, too. For a long time I thought that there are no “serious” games for phones other than puzzles and those annoying Angry Birds, but a couple of days ago I found out that there are games in one of my most favorite genres, MMO RPG, too!
Of course, not all phones are powerful enough to run some of the games we’re going to discuss below, but a simple phone comparison can help you find out if your phone is good enough or if it’s the right time to buy a new one.
Anyway, here are the best 3 MMO RPGs I managed to find during these days. The first two will run on almost any phone while for the third you’ll need a more powerful device.
3. Star Legends
Many developers tried to bring the MMO RPGs created for the PC to Android phones, and well, that wasn’t quite a good idea. After all, a phone isn’t a PC, and playing the same game on both devices can be rather… tricky. Anyway, Spacetime Studios made a cleverer thing and created a MMO role-playing game especially for mobile phones – Star Legends.
This game is very simple, and this is an advantage and a shortcoming at the same time (you can’t really customize your character, and it’s bad for many RPG fans). But anyway, the game will offer you an interesting atmosphere, a big choice of armor and weapons and millions of other gamers to play and communicate with.
You can download it for free from Android Market and play it on any device running Android 2.0 or higher. By the way, Star Legends is especially optimized for Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play.
2. Pocket Legends
Pocket Legends is actually developed by the same Spacetime Studios that created the Star Legends we discussed earlier. It offers you a big multiplayer world with many dungeons, monsters, nice gear and other players, so it’s quite a nice choice if you want to kill several hours. However, don’t expect anything special from this game, since most dungeons, monsters and even characters look similar, so you won’t be able to play it for a really long time – you’ll get bored very soon.
Pocket Legends is available for free for all Android devices with the system version 2.0 and higher.
1. Order & Chaos Online
If you’re an owner of an Android phone with system version 2.2 or higher and have $7 to spend for buying a game, you can enjoy one of the best MMO RPGs for mobile phones ever – Order & Chaos Online. If you’re a MMO RPG fan, you have most likely heard of or played the famous World of Warcraft. Order & Chaos has much in common with WoW, but is simpler and optimized for a phone.
Order & Chaos is one of the most impressive MMO RPGs for smartphones, and it’s much deeper and much more interesting than the other two games from my list. You can choose any of the available 4 races (elves, humans, orcs and undead) and customize the gender, the appearance and the abilities of your character. Plus this game is the most beautiful game with the coolest graphics, too (especially if you play it on a phone with a huge screen like the Samsung Galaxy S2 or the Galaxy Note), and everybody says it’s worth the money you spend on it.
