Fighting games may not be the most popular type of game anymore, but the people who still like them are some of the most dedicated gamers. Fighting games on Android haven’t been as popular or successful as many people had hoped, and there aren’t a lot of great options. In 2018, there were some pretty big releases, and there have been more since then. But if you want to play a game against other people, you’ll still need an emulator. Here are the best fighting games for Android if you want to give it a try.
Brawl Stars might be a little bit too much. The gameplay is a little more like a beat-em-up than a real fighter, but many of the same tense parts are there. You and up to two other people play PvP online against a total of three other people. You have to beat them up and do what you set out to do. But the game does have a mode where two people fight each other, and it’s pretty much a fight to the death. There aren’t a lot of great fighter games, but we think this one is a good way to kill five minutes.
Brawlhalla is a fighting game that is surprisingly fun to play. It’s like Super Smash Bros. in a lot of ways. Players stand on a small platform with edges that can be stepped off. The different characters all have different attacks and skills, which is a lot like Super Smash Bros. Also, the controls on-screen can be changed a lot, and there are a few different game modes. This is a good arcade fighter that is a lot of fun for short periods. Also, there are 50 characters, and more are being added all the time.
EA Sports’s UFC Mobile 2
Early in 2022, EA stopped making the first UFC mobile game, and now we have its replacement. Some people think it’s a bad thing that the game doesn’t play much like its predecessor. The controls are easier to use and more like those in an arcade. There is also a progression in RPGs, where your fighter gets stronger as they gain levels. Other parts of the game include a gacha system that lets you build the best team of fighters, moves that only big fighters can do, and more. It’s not as good as the first one, but the first one took a few years to get good, so we hope EA makes this one better too.
King of Fighters ALLSTAR
The King of Fighters ALLSTAR is one of the relatively newer fighting games on this list. It takes place in the Kingdom of Fantasy world and has a lot of characters from the different games. It’s a bit of a button-masher, but there are more ways to control it than in Mortal Kombat X or Injustice 2. The game also has a campaign mode, online PvP, and co-op play. People seem to like this one a lot, even though PvP matches can be slow at times. Aside from that, it’s a good fighter that’s free to play.
