The top 10 Android games of the month [May 2019]

A new official Pokemon game or the much-awaited Durango Wild Lands are just a few of the best Android games released this month.

May has been full of good omens for Android. Although the much-awaited release (regional for now) of Call of Duty Mobile has been the definite headline, there are a bunch of other milestones that should be taken into account. We’re talking about the much-awaited Durango: Wild Lands or the new official game that takes place inside the Pokemon universe. Here’s our list of the 10 best games for smartphones that were released during the month.

Tales of Wind

Ragnarok Online set the standards inside the MMORPG genre a few years ago. Its influence is still as current today as it was then thanks to games such as Tales of Wind, which recovered the formula of adorable visuals and a gameplay that focuses on aesthetic customization and interaction between characters.

Dead Rain 2: Tree Virus

A worn out formula could experience a second wind after a good makeover. Dead Rain 2 could seem like a less than an optimal alternative: an action and platform game that challenges you to complete short missions where you’ll have to collect objects and resources in order to upgrade your team. However, if you also add tasteful low-poly visuals and user-friendly controls, then the game is sure to get you hooked. [Download]

Grimvalor

Metroidvania is a user-friendly genre that’s not as popular in the Android universe as we would like since it doesn’t really include all the usual Freemium canons. Grimvalor is reminiscent of the amazing Castlevania: Mirror of Fate as far as its 2.5D development. It also includes a more in-depth combat system than a regular hack and slash. After all these credentials, adding it to this list was a no-brainer. [Download]

Eclipse Isle

Yup, yet ANOTHER Battle Royale. But you have to admit that the studios really make an effort to try to innovate inside this genre to step out of the shadow of the most popular games. As far as Eclipse Isle goes, the dramatic effect occurs halfway between Fortnite and MOBAs like League of Legends. You’ll better understand what the game is about if we tell you that your character has special skills and that you’ll find neutral enemies as well as other players inside the setting. [Download]

Inuyasha: Naraku’s War

We’ve quite honestly lost count on the number of Android games based on successful manga/animes. Inuyasha is one of Rumiko Takahashi’s masterpieces, one of the most famous Japanese authors and the creator of the iconic Ranma ½, among many others. This time, we’re talking about an action RPG with incredible visuals. It most likely won’t reach the Western part of the world, so the only way to enjoy the game is in its original language.

Pokemon Rumble Rush

The fact that the first live-action film of this franchise was at the very top of the box office this month says a lot about what Pokemon means in our society. Although it’ll be pretty difficult to repeat Niantic’s success with their Pokemon GO, any similar game for Android is sure to call everyone’s attention. Rumble Rush is an entertaining game that challenges you to get rid of different creatures and unlock new ones. For a lot of fans, the game just needs to have adorable Pokemon and that’s good enough.

Eternal City

Can a game stand out from the rest because of its aesthetics alone? Eternal City is an action MMO that religiously follows the genre’s progression system in its third-person RPG/action component but does so with a tasteful anime-like design that puts it above the rest. [Download]

Dawn of Isles

A diamond in the rough delivered by the prolific NetEase. It’s easy to see that aesthetically, Dawn of Isles is pretty similar to the rest of the cell-shading games of The Legend of Zelda saga. More specifically, we’re talking about Breath of the Wild with which it shares aspects such as the synergies as well as natural elements. Plus, add a bunch of crafting and social interaction inspired by MMORPGs, and you’ll have one of the best games of the season and we can’t wait until they release its final version. [Download]

Golf Blitz

Noodlecake is one of the most talented developers when it comes to creating Android games. After their successful “Stickman Golf” saga, it’s back at it again with another game of the same genre. But this time, you get to participate inside online challenges. [Download]

Durango: Wild Lands

We’ve had to wait three years from the time we started getting access to its trial versions, but, it’s finally here. Durango: Wild Lands is an MMORPG where crafting and exploring take precedence. However, their trademark lies in the setting: you need to thrive in an archipelago of islands that are packed full of dinosaurs where the survivors trade scraps and fight against each other as if they were living in a post-apocalyptic world.
